Thanks to Beyonce and Coldplay, we are now heading into our weekend in a much more colorful and vibrant mood.

The collaborators just released their music video for “Hymn For The Weekend” and it makes us want to bust out in multiple cartwheels, it’s that good.

Directed by Ben Mor, the spirited visual was filmed on location in Mumbai and features famous Bollywood superstar, Sonam Kapoor. The video also features excited kids throwing chalk around while the band’s frontman, Chris Martin, makes his way around the city.

Beyonce appears in the clip wearing several elaborate ensembles, including a stunning floral headdress/crown paired with a red and gold cape ensemble all while singing the famous chorus.

The release of “HFTW,” from Coldplay’s acclaimed new album, A Head Full Of Dreams, is perfectly timed considering the band is headlining the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show on February 7. Beyonce is also set to make a cameo during Coldplay’s big performance.

And in case you didn’t know, Coldplay and Beyonce are good ol’ pals. The band has collaborated multiple times with Bey’s husband, Jay Z, and has even headlined a concert with the rapper.


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
