ew radar

This week Team EW has outdone itself. We’ve sent two incredible issues to print – our bumper September Fashion issue as well as our autumn/winter issue of Emirates Bride. We’re certainly looking forward to this weekend, and we plan on letting our hair down and have some well-earned fun…


Our favourite boy-wizard actor, Daniel Radcliffe, plays a despondent young man who drops out of med school after his classmate and girlfriend has an affair with their anatomy lecturer.  Still moping a year later he meets Chantry, played by Zoe Kazan, and they discover their mutual love for offbeat interests such as Elvis’ bizarre eating habits. The only problem is, Chantry is with Ben, her long term, live-in boyfriend. They opt to remain friends, but how long can they deny the attraction? We love the idea of this millennial take on the rom-com, plus it co-stars Adam Driver, the weirdo-cool actor from Lena Dunham’s Girls. The film opens today in all good cinemas.



warehouse sigma

British Drum ‘n Bass duo, Sigma, are having a very good year. Having met at Leeds University back in 2006, neither Cameron Edwards nor Joe Lenzie could have predicted that their 2014 free to download track Nobody To Love (a rework Kanye’s ‘Bound 2’) would hit the number one spot on the UK charts. Luckily for us, they’ll be performing right here at Level 41 in Media One Hotel tonight. They’re also bringing a few equally talented friends to make sure you’re entertained all night long – Birmingham-based beauty DJ Hannah Wants and Dubai favourites the UK R&B/Garage band Artful Dodger. Tickets available here.
