Music
Aquateen_waitFurther proof that the rude geniuses at Adult Swim have extended their contracts with Satan: the soundtrack for Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters. The film (out Friday, April 13 – coincidence?) already shut down Boston earlier this year, when Beantown PD mistook a promotion for the movie as a terrorist attack. Now the network is trying to shut down your ears. In addition to signature tracks from the cartoon?s characters (Master Shake, MC Pee Pants), indie metal gods Mastodon, Andrew W.K. and 9lb Hammer play their contributions loud. Best bet is to listen to new New York metal purveyors Early Man. Their song, a tribute to Meatwad, the sweetest character a cartoon ever saw, is titled ?More to Me Than Meat and Eyes.?

Movies

Carell_waitSteve Carell can’t lose (or so it would seem), which is why his involvement in yet another classic-TV-to-big-screen adaptation is something worth getting excited about. Steve has been cast in the title-ish role of the forthcoming Get Smart flick, and if that isn’t incentive enough, this will be: his Little Miss Sunshine co-star and recent Oscar winner Alan Arkin has just signed for the film, as well (Alan will play boss man CONTROL). Reunited and it feels so, well, smart. Peter Segal (The Longest Yard) will direct the flick, which will also star Anne Hathaway, Terrence Stamp and Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson. Well, four out of five ain’t bad. [The Hollywood Reporter]
