Jazz Tangcay Artisans EditorSPOILER ALERT: Do not read if you haven’t watched the ninth episode of “The Man Who Fell to Earth” on Showtime.When production designer James Merifield first signed on to Showtime’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” he thought he might be traveling to Cambodia or some exotic jungle to build a key set on location. But then the pandemic happened, and he ended up building the key set for the season finale in the U.K., at Black Park in Slough.The series, a continuation of the novel written by Walter Tevis and the legendary film starring David Bowie released in 1976, stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as the alien humanoid Faraday who crashes his spacecraft deep in New Mexico.

New ‘Fallout: London’ trailer reveals release window for “DLC-sized” mod
Fallout 4 mod Fallout: London has shown off some in-game footage and given the game a rough release date.The downloadable content sized mod for the Bethesda game is now set to release sometime in 2023, with the development team creating new quests, stories, and open-world environments to explore.You can check out the announcement trailer below.In the mod, players will be able to explore an original story in a post-apocalyptic London from the Fallout universe. Even though Fallout: London isn’t an official expansion to the franchise, the development team has previously stated that it wants to adhere to the series’ canon, and make sure that any new concepts feel like they fit within the franchise.Last month NME sat down with project lead Dean Carter, who revealed that Fallout: London will have original music written specifically for the mod, which will aim to parody classic British music like The Beatles and David Bowie.‘Nuclear Submarine’ will blend The Beatles with Fallout‘s signature atom punk culture, for example.Carter also revealed that Fallout franchise alums Ron Perlman and Liam Neeson were approached for the mod, with Perlman’s agent telling the group that it “couldn’t ever afford him,” whilst Neeson simply said he was no longer interested in doing work for the franchise.“Visiting a totally new setting allows for us to explore totally new cultures which have not homogenised with their American counterparts,” reads the trailer description.
