The Killers' "Shot At The Night" Video Shows Max Minghella & Bella Heathcote Taking A Ride

Most of the band members from The Killers, save for Brandon Flowers, are absent in the video for new M83-produced single "Shot At The Night," and even B-Flo is featured only here and there, as a mere reflection in a dark Las Vegas hotel room window.

The main action focuses on actors Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) and Max Minghella (The Social Network), as they meet-cute in Sin City and spend a romantic night running through the town.

I have to say, this track (taken from the upcoming Direct Hits collection by The Killers) has grown on me considerably over the past week. At first I thought it was tad weak, given the combined talents of M83 and Flowers & Co., but after a few listens it seems fine as a greatest hits add-on — and it's a definite improvement over anything from Battle Born.
