Here’s what’s being talked about in pop culture:

• David Bowie marked his 66th birthday today by releasing “The Next Day,” his first album in 10 years — and a surreal video of a single from that album. (Click on the image above.) [Spin]

• David R. Ellis, the director behind such thrillers as “Snakes on a Plane,” “Cellular” and “Shark Night 3D,” has died at the age of 60. [Movieline]

• The already-busy Joseph Gordon-Levitt — who’s coming to Sundance to premiere his directorial debut and emcee the closing-night awards ceremony — has just signed up to join the cast of ‘Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.” [Vulture]
