30 SECONDS TO MARS RELEASES 'UP IN THE AIR' OFFICIAL SHORT FILM

Image icon30-seconds-to-mars_02.jpg30 Seconds To Mars has issued the official "short film" for the track "Up In The Air," the first single from the band's upcoming album Love Lust Faith + Dreams. In the eight-minute mini-movie, which has been directed as usual by frontman Jared Leto under his Bartholomew Cubbins pseudonym, the band performs in an abandoned airplane hangar with a cast of colorful characters that includes a man covered by bees, a young woman surrounded by butterflies and a fellow circling inside a mobile hoop. The video also features lions, zebras, wolves and a massive colored chalk fight.

Guests in the film include ex-wife of Marilyn Manson and burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, U.S. Olympic gymnasts Jordan Wieber and McKayla Maroney, models Ashley Smith and Anastasia Krevosheeva, and performers from Cirque du Soleil.

Leto said, "This short film is quite unlike anything we have ever done before . . . we take an epic, bizarre and hallucinogenic journey through a incredibly surreal landscape. It was exciting to explore new territory and once again work with the maniacal Bartholomew Cubbins at the helm."

The first copy of "Up In The Air" was delivered by cargo rocket to the International Space Station last month, before premiering on rock radio.

Love Lust Faith + Dreams will be released on May 21st and follows up 2009's This Is War.
