The Week Ahead

WATCH: The Night Manager. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock recently, Tom Hiddleston in John le Carre’s The Night Manager has been stealing the hearts of guys and gals across the nation. It also stars a distinctly British Hugh Laurie, well and truly shedding his ‘House’ image. There’s still a few weeks left of the flawless series being hailed as Hiddleston’s Bond audition, so it’s perfectly acceptable to catch up on iPlayer and pretend you’ve been in-the-know the entire time.
Catch up on iPlayer here.

SEE: Batman vs Superman. Not one to miss out on the huge superhero hype created by The Avengers, a controversial Ben Affleck Batman takes on Henry Cavill’s Superman in the followup to 2013’s Man of Steel. Think more Dark Knight Rises than Captain America, as the brooding icons collide in director Zack Snyder’s new age clash of the titans.
Out on Thursday 24th nationwide.

ADMIRE: Strange and Familiar: Britain as Revealed by International Photographers. This photo exhibition on display at the Barbican Centre focuses the lens on us Brits, as seen by artists from around the world. The up close and personal series is perfect for the people watchers among us, with stark portraits of the people that define our country – whether we like it or not.

ABSORB: Bond in Motion. While it may have been out for a while, the James Bond exhibition at the London Film Museum is a fab collection of the cars that have whizzed 007 around the world since his onscreen debut. There’s a tasty little discount on tickets on YPlan this week as well, so feel a little smug, and act a little suave with history’s greatest spy.

LISTEN: Post Pop Depression. Iggy Pop’s latest musical endeavour has finally been released. After months of anticipation, the Josh Homme led project is available now – while this technically happened last week, we felt it was so awesome that it deserves to fill up your head for at least another 7 days.
Buy now on iTunes.

EAT: Unlimited Meatballs. Yes, you heard us right. Grab as many balls of deliciousness as you can handle at Salvador and Amanda in Holborn. There’s an innuendo in there somewhere.

DRINK: Django Bango. Self described as an ‘immersive Western experience”, Django Bango is A Million Ways to Die In the West, without the dying part. It’s Cowboys and Aliens without the aliens. Basically, it’s cowboys. And who doesn’t love Daniel Craig in chaps? Grab a western cocktail like a Badlands Brew Tequila, Lynchburg Lemonade, or a Talulah’s Sun Down Jaegermeister and party like the good, the bad and the ugly in the wild west. Well, Brick Lane. Whatever.
