New Alien Movie?

So it looks like Neill Blomkamp is going to direct a new Alien movie.

I don't know though. This is the same guy that wrote and directed Elysium.

Make Out Music

I'm surprised Moments In Love by The Art Of Noise didn't make the list. New Spotify survey determines which songs we most often have sex to.

...the two-minute instrumental song "Intro" by The xx is the No. 1 song to make love to. The rest of the top 10 sex songs are as follows: "From Eden" by Hozier, "Menswear" by The 1975, "Magic" by Coldplay, a remix of "You & Me" by Disclosure, "Sweet Ophelia" by Zella Day, "Let's Get Started" by Dylan Gardner, "Night Like This" by LP, "Talk Is Cheap" by Chet Faker, and "Dreams" by Fou De Toi.
