A bus stunt for Jackie Chan movie The Foreigner alarmed Londoners, who feared a terrorist attack was taking place in Lambeth earlier today (February 7). The Foreigner is based on the book 'The Chinaman' released in 1992 by Stephen Leather, and will star Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan. Conservative MP Nigel Huddleston caught the explosion, according to The Guardian, and tweeted about its impact, saying the “scale and realism of the explosion would have worried a lot of people”. “Anyone worried about the exploding bus on Lambeth Bridge just now?” he tweeted. “It was just for a movie.” Watch the staged explosion below: Martin Campbell will direct the movie, which - assuming it follows a similar plot line to the book - is based around a Vietnamese lead character who escapes the vicious environs of the Vietnam War to start over in London, only to see his family killed in an IRA bombing. The plot follows his search for revenge, which utilises the skills he learned back in Vietnam. The Foreigner is still in the very early stages of filming and has an estimated budget of $35 million. There is no confirmed release date.

David Duchovny has criticised Hollywood over the unequal pay offered to his X-Files co-star Gillian Anderson, following the revival of the cult TV series. The X-Files returned earlier this year, revived for six episode mini-series that creator Chris Carter has called 'like the old days'. Anderson, however, had to battle for an equal pay offer in advance of filming. Backing his co-stars comments in the pay situation, Duchovny told The Guardian: “I’ve done everything I can to help that whenever I could. I think we should be paid the same to do The X-Files. You can ask Gillian. She knows that I have always wanted us to be paid the same, for as long as I’ve known there was a discrepancy. "Hollywood payment is not fair," he continued, "and it doesn’t always parcel on gender lines or race lines, or anything like that.” Getty Anderson revealed the unequal pay offer (which she rejected, and later gained the same rate as Duchovny) in interviews around the launch of the new series, telling The Daily Beast: "I'm surprised that more [interviewers] haven't brought that up because it's the truth. Especially in this climate of women talking about the reality of [unequal pay] in this business, I think it's important that it gets heard and voiced.It was shocking to me, given all the work that I had done in the past to get us to be paid fairly. I worked really hard toward that and finally got somewhere with it." The actress continued: "Even in interviews in the last few years, people have said to me, 'I can't believe that happened, how did you feel about it, that is insane.' And my response always was, 'That was then, this is now.' And then it happened again! I don't even know what to say about it." Anderson concluded by saying of her lower pay offer: "It is… sad. It is sad."

Red Hot Chili Peppers have performed 'One Hot Minute' track 'Aeroplane' live for the first time since Dave Navarro left the California group. Navarro departed the Chili Peppers in 1998, due to drug addiction, but performed with them for the last time in 1997, meaning its been nearly 20 years since 'Aeroplane' was last performed live. The Californians have been outspoken in recent months, particularly in lending support to Bernie Sanders in the American presidential race, but also in talking up the quality of the songs they're currently working on with Danger Mouse. Watch fan-filmed footage of the 'Aeropane' performance at the DirectTV Super Bowl party last night (February 6) below (fair warning - there's some fairly NSFW language in the pre-track chat): Perhaps the Chili's have been feeling nostalgic for the Navarro era, as a rarity recorded around that time also surfaced over the past few days, with 'Circle of the Noose' once called "the greatest pop song I've ever been part of" by Navarro. Navarro was a member of the California act for five years in the '90s, replacing John Frusciante in 1993. 'Circle Of The Noose' comes from sessions the band laid down for the follow-up to 1995's 'One Hot Minute', prior to Navarro's exit. The guitarist, also a member of Jane's Addiction' verified the origins of the song when responding to a fan tweeting him about it. Red Hot Chili Peppers are, according to Anthony Kiedis, in the "home stretch" of recording their new album.

Steven Avery's twin sons - Steven Junior and Bill - have broken their silence on the fate of their father and the Netflix documentary that deals with his controversial murder conviction, Making a Murderer, talking in particular on their lives in relation to the show. 'Making a Murderer deals with the twins father, Steven Avery, and his conviction for the murder of Teresa Halbach, with the documentary highlighting issues and alleged corruption in the case, as well as problems that preceded the murder that include Avery's previous wrongful conviction and extended prison stay. The twins are 25, and their father - through his two convictions - has been in prison for all but two and a half years of their lives. "The first eighteen years are the most critical, where you make that father-son relationship," said one son, saying that if his father is innocent, he feels a part of his life has been robbed. He also speaks about wanting to change his name to take his wife's surname (she refused), and how the documentary has impacted on his life. He feels the military didn't hire him because of his identity, despite being "more than qualified." One brother says he doesn't think his father is guilty, while the other says he has "no idea," but feels that it's clear the case involved corruption. The pair were speaking to an American documentary entitled 'Crime Watch Daily', which airs tomorrow (February 8), but parts of the interview have already been revealed via a preview available on YouTube, which can be seen below: Last week, Avery's lawyer Kathleen Zellner claimed to have new evidence that will prove Avery's innocence. "Generally, since 2007, there have been significant advances in forensic testing … the clearest way to do this is with scientific testing,” Zellner said in her first TV interview since taking the case. “Am I going to tell you exactly what it is? I am not. But it’s been a long time. There was a lot of evidence that wasn’t tested.” She also tweeted that Avery had asked for every available piece of DNA testing in an attempt to prove his innocence, including an image of a handwritten note making the request from Avery himself. Meanwhile, prosecutor Ken Kratz has claimed the documentary omitted crucial evidence in the case.

Missy Elliott has dropped a new track 'Pep Rally', recorded for an Amazon advert that will feature on American TV during tonight's (February 7) Super Bowl. The track is Super Bowl themed, with its accompanying Amazon promo video featuring former Miami Dolphin's quarterback Dan Marino, widely recognised as one of the sport's all-time greats despite never winning a Super Bowl. The ad also stars actors Alec Baldwin and Jason Schwartzman. Elliott has a history with the Super Bowl, having appeared alongside Katy Perry and the internet-famous left shark in February of last year, performing 'Get Ur Freak On', 'Work It' and 'Lose Control' during the half time show. Listen to 'Pep Rally' via Spotify, below: And here's the Super Bowl Amazon advert it's taken from, which calls itself an 'Alec Baldwin game day party': The new track is Elliott's first since Pharrell collaboration 'WTF (Where They From?)' (and her second new track since 2012), with the singer also crediting her return to Pharrell. In an interview with the Guardian in November, she explained: "I’d most definitely say that Pharrell was the captain of the ship – he asked me to perform with him last year at the BET Awards, and then Katy Perry asked me to do the Super Bowl with her. After the Super Bowl, I think I was in shock. I was getting mad calls: “Do you see what’s goin’ on?” “Do you see what people are sayin’?” "By that point I was back at my house washing dishes and vacuuming my floor! I’ve got my scarf on my head! And then Pharrell called. He said: “If you would have it, I would like to get in the studio with you.” And I was like: “This is Pharrell, am I gonna be non-busy? I’m vacuuming my floor!” So I said OK."

Streaming service Tidal - owned and fronted by Jay-Z - is to make a donation of $1.5 million (a little over £1 million) to Black Lives Matter-linked charities. The donation was announced on what would have been the 21st birthday of the late Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was shot dead by a neighbourhood watch volunteer at 17 in Sanford, Florida in February 2012. Black Lives Matter is an activist movement campaigning to stop violence against black people. The funds to be donated come from Tidal's charity concert, which took place in Brooklyn, New York last October, and starred Beyonce, Jay-Z, Prince, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. Tidal has come in for criticism since its launch, including that the project is a 'vanity project' and will 'only benefit mainstream acts', to which Jay-Z suggested that there was a smear campaign funded by major companies against his service. Jay-Z performed a freestyle diss of YouTube and Spotify at the October concert, which can be seen via YouTube, below: Jay-Z is often outspoken on racism, and has previously told Oprah Winfrey's 'Masterclass' series "racism is taught in the home. I truly believe that racism is taught when you're young." He added: "I think that hip-hop has done more for cultural relations than most cultural icons. And I say, save Martin Luther King because his 'Dream' speech we realized and President Obama got elected, but the impact of the music, this music didn't only influence kids from urban areas; it influenced people around the world. People listen to this music all around the world and took to this music." The funds will be split amongst the following organisations, according to UpRoxx: Opportunity Agenda, Hands Up United, Sankofa.org, Community Coalition, Dream Defenders, Black Youth Project, Baltimore Justice Fund, Empowerment Development Corporation, Million Hoodies, NY Justice League, Ohio Students Association/Organizing Collaborative, the Trayvon Martin Foundation, the Michael O.D. Brown We Love Ours Sons and Daughters Foundation, and the Oscar Grant Foundation.

Lady Gaga is set to become the first artist ever to play the Oscars, Academy Awards and Super Bowl all in a year, and will pull all three off inside a month. Gaga is set to perform the American national anthem in advance of tonight's (February 7) Super Bowl, with the Grammy performance - a tribute to David Bowie to take place on February 15, and the trio to be completed with an Oscars performance on February 28, meaning Gaga won't even need to leave California to pull off her first. As Billboard points out, the trio of performances will be a first for any musician. Gaga was booked to play the Grammys ahead of Bowie's death, but her performance has been adapted since the iconic artist passed away, with Gaga expected to cover three or four Bowie tracks at the show. At the final of the three appearances, the Oscars, Gaga is also up for the 'Best Original Song' award. Getty Gaga has been talking about the solo follow-up to ARTPOP recently, telling James Franco: "I've been writing a lot for the past year. The show [US drama The Countess] has really affected my voice, I have to say. I'm using my listening from acting in my music more, which is crucial because it's music. Who knew I could listen even more? It's amazing to even talk about. "There will be some of my pain on the record for sure, but it will be more than that. My last album was riddled with a ton of pain," Gaga continued, "that whole record. It's almost like you couldn't even get to what it is." Gaga is expected to release a new studio album in 2016 and has been in the studio with producers including RedOne and Mark Ronson in the past twelve months as she works on tracks for the record. A release date is as yet unknown.

Metallica's entire 'The Night Before' Super Bowl show - which took place in San Francisco last night (February 6) - is available to stream via YouTube. The traditional pre-Super Bowl concert was shown live on YouTube last night, and remains available for the time being, featuring just under two and a half hours of live footage. Metallica performed something of a 'greatest hits' setlist, with 'For Whom The Bells Toll', 'One', 'Master Of Puppets', 'Seek and Destroy', 'Enter Sandman' and their commonly-performed cover of 'Whiskey in the Jar' all featuring in an 18-track set. The Los Angeles act are believed to be in the process of recording new material, while the below show will also be made available as a collectible CD and download. 300 fan club members were also invited to watch soundcheck ahead of the performance. Watch the show in full via YouTube, below: Coldplay have the 'headline' slot at the Super Bowl, where they're expected to be joined by Beyonce and Bruno Mars for a set that will last approximately 12 minutes. Both the half time show and the 'night before' shows are long-standing Super Bowl traditions. The half time show's previous performers in recent years including Beyonce, Katy Perry, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Madonna and The Who. While they're not in the central role, Metallica are a rarity in a set up that tends to ignore metal acts. In the UK, the Super Bowl is being shown on BBC 2, with coverage starting at 11pm, and the half time show expected some time in the early hours. Last year's worldwide audience for American football's headline event was estimated at 160 million.
