Mayor Jim Kenney softens stance after rapper reacts strongly to decision to move Made in America festival out of city centre Jay-Z is embroiled in a dispute with the mayoral office of Philadelphia after it announced plans to change the location of his music festival, Made in America. On Tuesday, a representative for Mayor Jim Kenney said this year’s festival would be the last to be held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in the centre of the city. The festival, founded in 2012, was “intended to provide a unique attraction to the city on the otherwise quiet Labor Day weekend” but thanks to a rise in tourism, the mayor’s office argued “the need for an event of this scale at this location may no longer be necessary”.

As the Abba extravaganza returns, the star explains why a Mamma Mia! sequel couldn’t be more timely, how working with two ex-partners is an advantage – and why Spielberg’s war epic left him ‘very sad’ Dominic Cooper nearly didn’t try for the first Mamma Mia! film. He was in the middle of shooting something else and reluctantly went along to the audition, not expecting to get the part, not sure he wanted it anyway. As he crossed the country in the rain, he thought: “I’m not a musical-theatre person. Why am I going?” But he sang a song at the audition – “I was terrified” – and got the part. Then he went to see the stage show and was deeply moved. “It was incredible seeing an audience so swept away,” he says. “Wonderfully, it turned out to be something people really needed at that time – they were desperate for that escapism.” And then the film, starring Meryl Streep as the spirited single mother Donna, was released in 2008, just before the global economy tanked.

​One or Two Questions review – gripping doc gets to heart of Uruguay23h ​One or Two Questions review – gripping doc gets to heart of Uruguay
Kristina Konrad’s four-hour epic is an unsettling but vital exploration of the effectiveness of referendums – and what peace means in a democracy This gruelling but vital film should be required viewing, perhaps in school-detention conditions, for Putin, Trump, Farage, opportunist Brexiters, amoral consultants, veteran lobbyists and anyone else from the current mob of democracy-bashers. Four hours discussing a 1989 Uruguayan referendum is probably not somewhere you ever thought you needed to be. But this surprisingly gripping patchwork of regular Joes expressing their intentions and apprehensions to director Kristina Konrad, then working for Swiss television, couldn’t have greater relevance. The immediate issue – whether a law granting immunity to members of the outgoing military regime who abducted, tortured and murdered their socialist insurgent opponents should be repealed – is interesting enough. As the interviews pile up in all their eloquence and clumsiness, what comes into focus is a sharp probing of the effectiveness and potentially destructive nature of referendums, and beyond that a stand for the sanctity of democratic debate.

Gareth Southgate prompts new round of an old game: cash-in books24h Gareth Southgate prompts new round of an old game: cash-in books
His redemptive World Cup performance has set publishers chasing after a time-honoured goal: getting a hot topic on to shelves while it’s still warm. But can anyone beat a Michael Jackson written in 48 hours? Not content with winning the hearts of a nation, or transforming the humble waistcoat into the coolest thing that’s ever come out of M&S, England’s sweetheart Gareth Southgate has now inspired the country’s publishers. While they chase Southgate, Harry Kane and the rest of the squad to write books after their World Cup success, some are not waiting for their involvement at all. Zero to Hero: The Southgate Story, by sports writer Rob Mason, is set to trace Southgate’s journey from “zero to hero”, from his start at Crystal Palace until this year’s World Cup. The biography, like HarperCollins’s similarly rushed England’s Heroes: A Tribute to Our Young Lions, is due out in just three weeks. Celebrities capitalising on a brief glimpse of fame (there are a startling number of Love Island books); politicians using memoirs as a final hurrah before an autumnal career speaking to rooms of bored risk analysts; publishers scrambling to keep up with our rabid news cycle. Speedy cash-ins are a long, if not entirely respected, tradition. Aside from World Cup books, there are plenty more heading our way. The Thai cave rescue? Very likely, as three big

The legacy of 2008’s dark Batman sequel has been clouded by a string of dour DC missteps and a wider misunderstanding of the film’s groundbreaking grimness Can Christopher Nolan predict the future? Could he have somehow foreseen the eerily specific prescience of Batman’s introduction in 2008’s The Dark Knight, modern superhero cinema’s unwitting blueprint? Christian Bale’s caped crusader doesn’t show his cowled face until a few scenes into the film, after the Joker has pulled off his daring bank heist. Bruce Wayne arrives on the scene to bust up a powwow between some mobsters and guest villain Scarecrow, but he’s preceded by some paunchy copycats armed with shotguns and hockey pads. Their effort to emulate Batman only gets them into trouble, until the genuine article shows up to dispatch the goons with minimal difficulty. Purrs the Scarecrow: “That’s more like it.”
