Matt Damon has played a series of pranks on the public to publicise his new Jason Bourne film. In scenes designed to resemble the Bourne movies, “spies” approached unsuspecting people and gave them a mobile phone. They were told simply “Answer the call”. Unbeknownst to them, it was Damon who then phoned and gave them bizarre tasks to carry out. Some people instantly hung up when the phone went. When Damon asked to speak to “Steven”, one woman replied: “I don’t know a Steven. Is that a guy I hooked up with?” Damon’s instructions included buying hot dogs, before eventually participants were told to enter a parking garage, where they were greeted by the actor, who gave each of the successful “spies” two tickets to the premiere of the new film, simply titled Jason Bourne. Damon told the ticket winners: “In the future, when people call you with requests like that, don’t follow them.” The stunt was also done to raise money for water charity Water.Org as part of Damon's association with the Omaze fundraising body. Jason Bourne is the fifth Bourne movie and the first since The Bourne Legacy in 2012. It’s written and directed by Paul Greengrass, who directed the first four films in the saga as well as United 93 and Captain Philips.

Lorde has donated $20,000NZ (£10,000) to help a New Zealand charity help feed under-privileged children. The charity, Fuel The Need, was set up to help children in the city of Upper Hutt get access to lunches in school. Lorde, who is from New Zealand, made her contribution after local businesses only donated a total of £700 when they were contacted by Fuel The Need. Fuel The Need organiser Manuel Dalton said: “To date, we’d raised $1400, so when Lorde’s payment came through, it was amazing.” Lorde, under her real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, wrote on Fuel The Need’s fundraising page explaining her donation, saying: “Good on you Manuel and Fuel The Need. I hope this helps a little bit. Lots of love from a former kid who is passionate about all kids having access to food at school.” Last year, Lorde publicised on Instagram a similar local charity Eat My Lunch which also funds meals for poverty-hit children. She said at the time: “It makes me want to cry, thinking about kids who can’t eat at school, and therefore probably find it pretty tough to focus and learn too.” Lorde is continuing to work on the follow-up to 2013’s debut album ‘Pure Heroine’. Since then, she has featured on Disclosure’s album ‘Caracal’ and performed ‘Life On Mars?’ at the Brit Awards as a tribute to David Bowie.

Lil Wayne has confirmed details of his long-awaited prison memoir Gone Til November. The book was first announced in 2012, but no further details apart from its title emerged. However, the book has now been given a release date of October 11 and will be published by Penguin, rather than 2012 publishers Grand Central. The memoir is based on diaries kept by Wayne when he spent eight months at New York’s biggest prison, Rikers Island, in 2010. The rapper was sentenced after he was caught with an illegal .40 calibre pistol in his possession after police saw him smoking marijuana following his gig at New York theatre Beacon. Wayne eventually served eight months of his one-year sentence, despite being found with contraband items including an MP3 player, phone charger and headphones two months into his jail term. Gone Til November takes its title from the first letter Wayne wrote in prison. These letters were first published on the website Thank You Weezy, which highlighted how Wayne was coping with prison life. He wrote at the time that he read the Bible every day and worked out a lot in prison. The British publishers of the 176-page book are Plume, who say of Gone Til November: “It’s a deeply personal and revealing account of his time spent incarcerated.” Earlier this month (June 14), Wayne’s private plane made an emergency landing after he suffered a seizure. He was treated for side-effects of his epilepsy.

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor suffered a fall at his band's gig in Atlanta, Georgia last night (Wednesday, June 29), just weeks after revealing that he recently broke his neck. Taylor returned to the band's US tour on Tuesday (June 28), playing a show in Nashville. The band were forced to postpone dates on their North American tour by almost three weeks after Taylor underwent "unplanned spinal surgery" and he later explained to fans that he had "basically" broken his neck and needed to have a disc replaced and work done on his vertebrae. The singer's second show back took place last night at Atlanta’s Lakewood Amphitheatre and , as Blabbermouth reports, it didn't go completely to plan. Gig-goers reportedly said that Taylor - who wore a neck brace for the performance - "took a hard fall" during the gig and "couldn’t walk when they picked him up". He was then rushed backstage following the incident. "Throughout the show he was clearly in pain from his neck but still clearly gave it all he could," one fan reportedly said. "He was shaking and looked to not be in a good way as they pulled him off." However, Taylor himself later took to Twitter to tell fans not to "worry" and that he was "okay". He also called the fall "one for the ages", adding "DAMN it hurt". See that tweet below. ATL: haha don't worry, I'm okay! I THINK that fall was one for the ages haha! DAMN it hurt- but DAMN what a crowd! See you again soon!#CMFT— Jalapeno Throat, LLC (@CoreyTaylorRock) June 30, 2016 Taylor previously admitted he actually broke his neck “a while back”, but hadn’t realised it until the pain became so severe that he had to admit himself to hospital. The tour, which ends on August 5, is Slipknot and Marilyn Manson’s first joint tour together. There are no shows outside North America on the tour, which also features Of Mice And Men.

Crystal Castles have shared new song ‘Concrete’, their third track with new singer Edith Frances. The track can be heard here via Korean website MNet. It follows ‘Deicide’ and ‘Frail’ after Frances joined the duo in April 2015. It’s rumoured Frances and founder member Ethan Kath’s first album together will be called ‘Amnesty (I)’, with a rumoured release date of August 19, though this has yet to be confirmed. ‘Concrete’ is one of four new songs Crystal Castles have previewed at their live shows since Frances joined. Former singer Alice Glass left acrimoniously in 2014. Kath had claimed Glass hadn’t actually contributed vocals or lyrics to some of the pair’s songs, leading Glass to respond: “Manipulative statement about my contribution to the band only reinforce the decision I made to move on to other things.” Crystal Castles were dropped from a showcase of feminist artists at South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, in March after Glass issued a statement saying: “As someone who knew Ethan Kath on a personal and professional level, it’s my opinion that he’s not an appropriate artist to be performing at a feminism-centric event.” The new album would be Crystal Castles’ first since their third album ‘iii’ was released in 2012. They resume touring on Saturday (July 2) at a festival in Russia, with their Reading And Leeds Festival shows in August their only scheduled UK gigs.

Idris Elba, America Ferrera and Ice Cube are among a record number of people invited to join the membership of the Oscars committee, following the criticism of this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. The lack of diversity in the Oscars shortlist led to the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag becoming a phenomenon, amid criticism that Oscars body The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts And Sciences is only comprised of 25% women and 8% people of colour. A total of 683 people in the film industry have been invited to join the Academy, with 46% of them being women and 41% people of colour. The list of invitees also includes Michael B Jordan, Emma Watson, Tina Fey, Star Wars actor John Boyega, Rachel McAdams, Lost actor Daniel Dae Kim, Mark Rylance, Ken Loach, Sam Taylor-Johnson, The Matrix directors the Wachowski sisters and Kiyoshi Kurasawa. Assuming everyone on the invites list accepts, this would bring the Academy membership up to 7,789 members. Everyone on the Academy is entitled to vote for the shortlist and winners of the Oscars. Civil rights leaders such as Al Sharpton joined actors in protesting that actors including Elba, Jordan and Will Smith were overlooked for the shortlist for this year’s ceremony.

Game Of Thrones has named the directors who will be in charge of episodes for season seven, which will be shown in 2017. There are just four directors for the next season, compared to the usual five for the HBO series. This means it looks like rumours that season seven will have seven episodes rather than the usual ten may well be correct. It’s been presumed that – following the likes of The Sopranos and Mad Men – seasons seven and eight of Game Of Thrones will each have seven episodes, with season eight being the show’s last. [SPOILER ALERT] This was effectively confirmed by showrunner Dan Weiss, who said that Daenerys heading to Westeros in Monday’s season six finale marks the beginning of the end for the show. Weiss told Entertainment Weekly: “Once Dany gets on those ships and crosses west, that’s when the clock on the end game starts ticking. The question has always been ‘When is she going to get back across the Narrow Sea? When is she going to take back her homeland?’ That’s something that’s such an imperative for people watching, and you know she’s not doing it for a beach vacation. When she gets back to Westeros, it’s on. Her return is the first domino.” The four directors include Alan Taylor, who is returning to the show for the first time since 2012. In his four years away, Taylor has become a success in Hollywood, directing films including Thor: The Dark World. He also directed Terminator: Genisys which starred Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke. Two of the show’s main directors of recent seasons won’t be returning. Miguel Sapochnik directed the last two episodes of season six, the acclaimed Battle Of The Bastards and The Winds Of Winter, isn’t returning. Nor is David Nutter, who directed The Red Wedding. It’s believed they may return for the final season eight. The other three directors for season seven are Mark Mylod, Jermey Podeswa and Matt Shakman. Shakman has also directed Fargo, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Mad Men, while Podeswa directed the acclaimed Game Of Thrones episodes Unbowed Unbent Unbroken and Jon Snow’s resurrection episode Home. Mylod is a British director who oversaw this season’s The Broken Man episode, having started in comedy with Ali G, Reeves And Mortimer and The Royle Family.
