Another trailer has just been released for Elysium, the upcoming sci-fi action film staring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. The film, set in 2154, depicts a divide between humanity with the majority consigned to an unstable and rugged existence on an overpopulated Earth while the privileged enjoy a crime-, war-, hunger-, and sickness-free life in Elysium, a massive utopian metropolis floating above earth. Damon plays Max DeCosta, a man stricken with cancer who intends to get to Elysium to be cured, very much against the wishes of Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Foster). Elysium is appropriately helmed by South African-Canadian director Neill Blomkamp, whose 2009 hit District 9 similarly explored themes related to class, immigration and segregation in the future. Elysium is scheduled to hit theaters August 9th.

New Era is a brand that has managed to grow both vertically and horizontally throughout the years, effectively broadening its global exposure while simultaneously deepening its ties within new markets.

Since its foundation as Droors Clothing by Ken Block and Damon Way, DC Shoes has been one of the pinnacle growth stories in action sports. The brand has grown immensely since its inception, in part due to its unwavering dedication to supporting the activities it loves the most. This chiefly involves skateboarding, and the brand has continually maintained a decorated roster of the most prolific professional skaters in addition to other action sport athletes. Behind the scenes, DC also maintains a committed team of professional designers to push the envelope, and from Unilite to Super Suede technology, their efforts have been successful. Hypebeast Spaces got the opportunity to view DC’s headquarters in Huntington Beach, speaking with Ben Kelly, the skate category director, as well as Wes Kremer, Nyjah Huston, and Mike Mo Capaldi about their professional models. Enjoy.

So I heard this song for the first time last night and the lyrics caught me. I love it cause their talking the some stuff rappers do on their records. Florida-Georgia Line is the hottest new act to hit country music in a few years and they are going from newcomers to selling out clubs in minutes before our very eyes. The song is titled Get Your Shine On and fans can’t get enough of it. They will be getting a lot more fans on their fast rolling bandwagon through the year as well since they are traveling all over America opening up for Luke Bryan on tour. Enjoy.

With the New York Knicks out of the playoffs, there are plenty finger pointing to go around. One of the many assumptions why the Knicks didn't advance to the next round belongs to J.R. Smith, who may have let his off-the-field lifestyle conflict with his on-the-court performance. But, here's Jalen Rose to the rescue. In a recent appearance on Grantland, Jalen made a case that certain players, J.R. included, need to go out to the clubs. Sounds ridiculous but why don't you check out the video and hear him out. It may actually make some sense after all. Enjoy.
