Tom Hardy is notorious for playing parts which require him to obscure his face with a mask for most of the movie — think Bane, Mad Max, and his Dunkirk fighter pilot. The easy joke to make would be that he’s hiding his face in shame because of a hip-hop mixtape he made in 1999 when he was a fledgling rapper. It would be a good joke except… the mixtape is actually pretty good?

The 18-track mixtape, 18-track Falling on Your Arse in 1999, started making the rounds on Thursday after the whole thing ended up on Bandcamp. Hardy’s brief career as a rapper isn’t new, as he admitted that he had a recording deal when he was a teen but never released anything in an interview with BBC years ago.

“Because I come from a nice middle-class neighbourhood it was a very hard sell,” he explained. “And I wasn’t very good!”

He’s perhaps being to hard on himself. While his rapping as “Tommy No. 1” is decidedly of its time, the beats and flow aren’t half bad, though the lyrics he wrote aren’t exceptional. His buddy Edward Tracy, who produced the songs under the pseudonym “Eddie Too Tall” and put the mixtape on Bandcamp, probably had something to do with it.

It’s not an amazing mixtape by any stretch of the imagination, and it’s easy to see why Hardy went on to become an actor famous for his largely wordless performances rather than he teenage white rapping. That’s the most interesting thing about Falling on Your Arse in 1999. It’s a fascinating “what-if,” and a revealing look at one of Hollywood’s actors back when he was just a tryhard teen recording music in his bedroom.

Stream the full mixtape below. I’m partial to the tenth track, “Bring the F__king Noise.”

It’s only Tuesday, but the latest batch of Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges have already leaked. We actually covered the initial news (and the mystery behind it) last week, but with Season 6 challenges quickly approaching here’s a quick guide on what you can do to prepare for the update (presumably version 5.3).

Monday is normally the day when Epic Games gives a tease of what’s coming in the next update for Fortnite: Battle Royale. While the company has yet to tweet or post about the update on the game’s subreddit, the update will likely happen Tuesday morning and include some interesting content.

Tuesday’s patch for Fortnite: Battle Royale will include new content and fixes to the game. One of the pieces will cause a big change to the game while the rest will be welcome additions for players.

Slender Man is the first feature film based on the wildly popular Slender Man creepypasta stories, but the movie’s abrupt ending suggests that the filmmakers don’t intend on producing a sequel. What we got instead a message that seems to put the franchise in an identity crisis.

Warning: Slender Man spoilers ahead.

Shark movies have an important place in film history. Jaws, the first-ever summer blockbuster, changed the film industry forever. Despite having a much bigger shark in it The Meg will certainly not make as big a splash as Jaws. The new action movie is perfectly dumb in the best possible way, though in an unexpected twist, the giant shark is really itself just bait to get moviegoers to see a Jason Statham movie.

Epic Games’ Fortnite: Battle Royale Summer Skirmish Series had a rocky start, but the weekly esports competition vastly improved over the course of four weeks. In Week 5, the event will go back to a duos tournament, but this time around, players will be awarded for a more aggressive playstyle.

On Thursday, Epic revealed the format for the Week 5 Summer Skirmish Series, which it calls King Pin. Fifty teams of two will compete in eight matches. They will receive points for each elimination they rack up, but what makes things interesting are the bonuses. A duo can receive double their points in the next match if they score seven or more eliminations or triple the points if they earn a Victory Royale. With this format, the team that strategizes and wins multiple matches could handily beat out the competition if they score plenty of kills or all their efforts to earn a Victory Royale could be for naught if they die right away in the next match.
