Tesla war immer eine Wette auf Musk

Tschüss Zwei Erzählungen über Teslas Schicksal haben es eine Zeit lang ausgekämpft. Man sagt, dass der Hersteller von Elektroautos nur wenige Jahre von der Profitabilität und der weltweiten Einführung alternativer Energien entfernt ist. Der andere sagt, dass das Unternehmen kopfüber in “eine Ziegelmauer” fährt. Letzteres […]

EDINBURGH: Investmentanalysten mit Sitz in London gehen davon aus, dass die Preise für Batterien für Elektroautos sinken und die Nachfrage nach umweltfreundlichen Fahrzeugen steigen wird, wenn europäische Automobilzulieferer die Produktion aufstocken. Tesla hat den Automobilherstellern und -zulieferern der Welt einen Vorsprung verschafft, aber in Europa […]

Spike Lee’s New Film Sparks Critics

Spike Lee’s New Film Sparks Critics

The explosive first trailer for Spike Lee’s adaptation of BlacKkKlansman has arrived, and it looks kind of insane, even though it’s based on a true story. Or, in Lee parlance: “Dis joint is based upon some fo’ real, fo’ real shit.”

The film, produced by Oscar winner Jordan Peele, stars John David Washington (son of Denzel) as Ron Stallworth, the first black detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department in the early 1970s. Though he’s still a rookie, he decides to embark on an ambitious mission: infiltrating the Ku Klux Klan. He starts by building a relationship over the phone with K.K.K. leader David Duke (played by Topher Grace). Then, he recruits a white colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), to go undercover as him to K.K.K. meetings, concocting a tightrope of an investigation that could go belly-up at any moment.

“Can you do that?” the police chief asks Stallworth.

“With the right white man, we can do anything,” Stallworth declares.

In the midst of the investigation, Stallworth also meets black liberation leaders (played by Laura Harrier and Corey Hawkins). The trailer ends with Duke leading Klan members in a rallying cry of, “America first,” a saying with dark origins that has been adopted by Donald Trump—who, incidentally was supported early in his campaign by the real-life David Duke. It’s likely no coincidence that Lee—a provocateur known for his topical and political references—found a way to slip this line into his period piece.

The film is based on Stallworth’s 2014 book Black Klansman, and made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday. With its hyper stylized aesthetic, perfectly assembled cast, and wild source material, BlacKkKlansman looks like it could be one of Lee’s best films in years. And based on some early reactions from Cannes, it just might be.

Dave Chappelle and Jon Stewart announced a joint stand-up tour for this summer. The comedic icons announced a seven-date June run spanning three cities: the 11th, 12th and 13th at Boston’s Wang Theatre, the 21st and 22nd at Houston’s Smart Financial Centre and the 23rd and 24th at El Paso, Texas’ Chavez Theatre.

In order to deter scalpers and bots, tickets will be available exclusively through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform. Registration is currently open and runs through Wednesday, May 16th at 10 p.m. ET, with tickets on sale Friday, May 18th at 10 a.m. local time.

The two comedians previously united in August 2017, with Stewart making a surprise appearance during Chappelle’s set at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. The former Daily Show host, who left his Comedy Central gig in 2015, bashed white supremacists and President Trump during the show. “Music and words and art is a power that can extinguish a Tiki torch,” he said of the so-called alt-right’s protest in Charlottesville.

Last July, Stewart announced a pair of HBO stand-up specials – his first in over two decades. In the past year, Chappelle has released four Netflix specials: EquanimityThe Bird Revelation and the Grammy-winning The Age of Spin and Deep in the Heart of Texas.
