This week’s stellar clip is footage of Star Wars actor Daisy Ridley rapping and beatboxing with fellow Force Awakens star John Boyega. Boyega explains in the video, which is an exclusive on the Target DVD edition of the movie in the US: “I’ve got good eye for talent and Daisy was doing a rap one day and I said ‘I can make you a big star’ so we decided to collaborate on a song together.” He then beatboxes while she drops rhymes including “We all up in the desert and we filming Star Wars, because of our diet we can eat no Mars bars.” Afterwards she says “I literally got nervous doing that”, but she needn’t have worried – she’s clearly got as many skills as a rapper as she does at acting.
Meanwhile, we also have a trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a standalone story set in the Star Wars universe, whose stars include Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker.
Staying on the space theme, there’s also a behind-the scenes look at BBC3’s Doctor Who spin-off Class, introduced by Patrick Ness.
If there are storms ahead, who better to read the weather than Thor’s brother, Loki, aka Tom Hiddleston? The recent star of BBC’s The Night Manager, who appeared in Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World, put a sunnier perspective on the clouds above Chicago when he made a guest appearance as a weather presenter.
One man who seems to be cracking jokes whatever the weather is David Brent, played by Ricky Gervais. Twelve years have passed since The Office, and Brent is now a travelling salesman who is chasing his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a UK tour with his band, Foregone Conclusion.
Some may find Brent’s humour a little childish but for those who enjoy kids being funny, look no further than the latest advertising campaign from the Green party.
Meanwhile, Benedict Cumberbatch was spotted popping into a New York comic books store in full costume during a break filming Doctor Strange and we’ve got a great mash-up of Bridget Jones and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Enjoy.
