Rumour watch: 30 Seconds ToMars splitting?

Recent 30 Seconds To Mars interviews have fuelled rumours that they are set to go on hiatus or even break up following their current tour.

Drummer Shannon Leto was asked about the rumours in an interview with MTV Canada and sarcastically explained that “We’ve been touring a long time man”, said “I mean, look at us. We’re broken down, sugar. We’re tired. We’ll probably just take a break for, I don’t know, we’ll take a break for ten years. Maybe fifteen or twenty years.”

Kurt Cobain impersonator Jared chipped in with the joke that “A decade always seems to take the edge off.”

The band hasn’t just been joking about a hiatus – in a recent interview with Kerrang Jared also suggested that This Is War could be the band’s last album.

“When I start a new record it ends up being a pretty involved affair; you need the time, energy and space to appropriately address it,” he explained, “We’re touring probably right until December. We’re talking about it right now, but you never know, there could not be another record. We’re not bound to continue walking down a path unless we’re really inspired to do so.”

If this leads to a Jared Leto solo album I'll spew.

I heard he's planning an album of Nirvana covers whilst he ponders his next move.

For somebody that creates boring, wanky and overall extremely derivative music, Leto sure does carry on like he's some sort of messiah-like cnut.

does anyone else think of jared leto being split open with that axe in american psycho when they read this title?

Why the sad face?

At least if 30STM break up, someone else will get the opportunity to be the worst band in the world.

I thought Short Stack was a clothing label.

What a great scene. It actually makes Huey Lewis and the News cool (for the duration of the scene)

By the way, Jared Leto also got absolutely destroyed in Fight Club, why is this not happening now?

Braveheart81

Back to the Future already did that.

The worst thing he has ever been a part of will still always be the atrocious film adaptation of American Psycho.

That film was good an adaptation as possible while still guaranteeing that anyone would actually release/promote it.

daveyac8881

daveyac8881 said on the 15th May, 2011



Could not disagree more. That film was a horrible insult to a the book and anyone who has read it. It's barely the book, just random scenes scattered around. And it's a book about male dominated society adapted by a mostly female production crew. That would be like Robert Rodriguez adapting Sisterhood of the travelling pants.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 15th May, 2011



I read the book before I watched the film.

I found both to be excellent tellings of the same plot, themes and point in different mediums.

Braveheart81 said on the 16th May, 2011



I agree.

I thought American Psycho was pretty good.

It's a tough balance to turn a book like that into a popular movie but I think they did it well. It's difficult to balance the graphic subject nature with the need to make a movie that will be shown in mainstream theatres and won't cause excessive outrage from the conservative lobby.

I think it's a great movie, Christian "I push my own mother' Bale at his finest

Pretty sure it caused a huge amount of outrage from conservatives anyway

They ended up having to cut a few scenes and it's banned in a few countries?

Getting banned in places like South East Asia is pretty common.

I guess I was talking about getting banned in the main markets such as the US.

American Psycho could have easily become a Salo type movie if they had really wanted to make it dark. Personally, I don't think that is the point. There is meant to be a ridiculousness to the graphic violence.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 16th May, 2011

I thought they captured the tone of the book well.

I also didn't particularly want to see a rat taking eating her out so litterally.

daveyac8881

daveyac8881 said on the 16th May, 2011



Exactly!! I think they really missed this in the film. The violence isn't graphic at all, Christian Bale is just a bit erratic when he carries it out. That scene where he kills the homeless man and he just stabs him off screen is such a fail I don't know why they even bothered to film it. I can't even see the film as an adaptation of the book. It's like 10% of the book in random order.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 16th May, 2011

I 100% guarantee that an exact film adaption of the book would be a steaming pile of shit.

not to mention probably 12 hours long, and unplayable in any non-XXX cinema in the world.
