New Dramatic Comedy ‘Burnt’ Opening In Theaters In New York and Los Angeles Today

A new “dramedy” titled Burnt from director John Wells (August: Osage County, Shameless) is opening for audiences in New York City and Los Angeles today, with a nationwide expansion expected in the next few weeks. The film comes from a film adaptation of a story by Michael Kalesniko (Private Parts, Iron Sky) by screenwriter Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Locke), centering around a chef who, after ruining his career with drugs and eccentric behavior, returns to London in an attempt to make a comeback by opening a restaurant capable of receiving three Michelin stars. Actor Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) stars as chef Adam Jones, with actors Sienna Miller (American Sniper, Foxcatcher), Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Basterds, Rush), Ricardo Scamarcio (My Brother is an Only Child, Loose Cannons), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jurassic World), Emma Thompson (Love Actually, Saving Mr. Banks), Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Vol. 1), and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man From UNCLE). The film is expected to be a semi-biographical story based around the life of Gordon Ramsey (Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Knightmares). The trailer is available here on MADE. Look for the nationwide expansion to your area in the next couple of weeks. Enjoy the weekend!

New Sound Underground @Icehouse {Recap}

New Sound

Last Saturday, the MADE family had the pleasure of watching Minneapolis Funk band New Sound Underground tear it up at Icehouse. New Sound was accompanied by Chicago’s own Spare Parts for what turned out to be one of New Sound’s best shows to date. The venue was filled with a large crowd (near sold out) for most of the night, but a surge of people cemented the evening at around 11, right before New Sound Under was due to hit the stage. As the opening act, Spare Parts took to the stage embraced warmly by the growing crowd. The duo from Chicago played a great show with a mix of classic tunes we all know with their own spin, to exclusive tracks from off of their most recent project “……..”. When it came to the main event, New Sound Underground didn’t disappoint; they took the stage quickly commanding the attention of the entire venue. The sax shone through bright as each member of the band could be heard distinctly, after the first couple of songs; the energy inside of Icehouse was at a fever pitch. New Sound maintained a high level of play throughout their set, announcing their ability to headline strongly. If you happened to miss the show, you surely missed out on a good one. Hopefully it wont be too long before the guys from New Sound take the stage again, stay tuned for upcoming show dates as the winter season moves along.
