What is it about this band's recent aversion to fun in anything official? Ties into the whole separation of concerts too.
Was New Kind Of Kick considered official? I think that was their idea of fun, lol.

A reference to 2001: A Space Odissey, typical of them...
I think it's somewhat cool, but I understand if someone could find it a bit creepy.

... still haven't watched that. Kinda feel like I'm a bit shit at pop culture when I haven't seen such films.

Didn't they previously want to put embryos in the test tubes they used at Reading 2006?

While you could consider it as part of pop culture, I warn you it's quite of a heavy, slow film to watch and follow for today's standards. You may even find it very boring if you have a short attention span.
Many popular TV series like to pay homage or make references to it for the laughs or because it makes them feel "smart", but it's much more deeper than that as a cinematic experience.
Also, the fetus (conventionally called "The Starchild") appears at the very last scene of the film, where he/she floats in space just over Earth atmosphere in a sort of bubble/womb. Throughout the last moments he stares deep into the camera, breaking the fourth wall, all while the famous Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra" plays over.

I didn't know about the embryos thing at R&L 2006 and it's something that gives me shivers.

Certainly I imagine its relevant to the pop culture as a very early successful sci-fi, plus I'm aware The Starchild scene has been referenced a lot (Simpsons did a gag on it, if I recall, among others).

I think I read it in the Mark Beaumont book that they were tried out in the stage design for that tour, but they tried it out and didn't think it worked.

I think the real question isn't so much if it's a reference to the movie, or just "hey, we're all born as drones!" (likely the latter as the former doesn't fit the concept at all...) but does this mean they've edited the actual live special effects in the movie?
Because that's more sad than an overdubbed note in Survival.

I think it was mentioned by Matt on multiple occasions that there was a lot of augmented visual gubbins going on making it more than just a straight concert movie.

I don't remember anything like that, but I guess I stopped reading recent interviews.
I'm just against adding visuals to what's supposed to be a live concert release. That's pretty shoddy, if it happens.

I'm even more curious about the "documentary" part of it now, too, because how boring would that be to see in the theater? Do people really want to see Matt explain floating drones as a metaphor for (gasp!) drones! on the big screen?

why would an announcement be made about this (tix onsale in a week) without simultaneously releasing at least a partial list of the worldwide cinemas in which it will play?

They had this issue the last time they did this (Rome,) too. The tracker never worked correctly.

in other news, my local cinema was about decently full for Rome; i was surprised. wonder how well-attended this shizz will be...

also: why are there...fetuses (?)...in placentas inside the orbs on the promo sheet?

or are they just plug in babies in the orbs that just happen to be placenta-colored?

alternatively -- simply a riff on The Globalist's artwork?

There was never a functional list for the US anyways. I remember having to call around to all the small theaters asking about it, and was still given the wrong information about it being in 4k.

It was said that that orbs were supposed to have projection screens on them but they didn't get enough time to test it, and gave up when it failed. That's why they were all white during the Mexico gigs and then had the screening removed later to make them clear and lights were slapped on them.

If that is the sort of thing they were planning, I'm glad it failed.

Mostly I'm curious if they've actually photoshopped visuals like that into the actual gig movie... because why else put it on the poster like that?
