RANDALL KING Ñ MOVIES

Spurlock sells out

As of tomorrow, the movie One Direction: This Is Us will be 20 minutes longer in an "extended cut," which features three more songs from Simon Cowell's boy band. According to the press release, this stuff was added in response to the $50 million in fan support at the box office -- as opposed to being planned from the start. Just asking: Isn't this the kind of marketing the film's director Morgan Spurlock would have gleefully scorned in his past work as the director of The Greatest Movie Ever Sold and the producer of What Would Jesus Buy?

BRAD OSWALD Ñ TV

Will the family that outwits together still sit together?

So, you've endured the most difficult six weeks of your life, been exposed to endless days of sweltering heat, torrential rain, extreme food deprivation, incessant insect attacks and a non-stop series of blindsides and backstabs from people you thought you could trust. What do you do next? Why, grab the hand of a person you love and do it all over again, of course! That's the premise of Survivor: Blood vs. Water, which premi®res Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 7 p.m. on CBS and Global, in which veteran castaways -- including Rupert Boneham, Tina Wesson and Gervase Peterson -- return with loved ones in tow for a new season of tribal-council tribulations.

MORLEY WALKER / BOOKS

No wonder he seemed distracted onstage

He may not be a rock 'n' roll survivor in the class of Keith Richards, but Graham Nash, the British-born alumnus of the Hollies and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, has his share of stories. In his new memoir, Wild Tales, he recalls meeting Canadian songbird Joni Mitchell at a party in Ottawa in 1968. He fell instantly in love, spent the night with her, slept in and nearly missed his Hollies gig the next night -- in Winnipeg. "Traumatic," he writes, "but worth every minute of it."

KEVIN PROKOSH / THEATRE

It's closer than ever

The 2013-14 regular theatre season launches Wednesday with a revival by Dry Cold Productions of Closer Than Ever, a two-act musical revue featuring songs about adulthood by the American composing team of Richard Maltby Jr and David Shire of Big, the Musical fame. The five-day run at the Shaw Performing Arts Centre is noteworthy for the debut of local choreography/performer Kimberley Rampersad as director. She has assembled a promising cast of singers: Peter Huck, Aaron Hutton, Jennifer Lyon and Debbie Maslowsky.
