    Madonna Reportedly Working With William Orbit & Abel Korzeniowski On Classical Score For 'W.E.'

    For her sophomore directorial effort "W.E.," Madonna is certainly surrounding herself with some solid talent. She's got Abbie Cornish, Oscar Isaac, Andrea Riseborough and James D’Arcy to lead the cast in the highly ambitious film, that tells the parallel stories of the love affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, which led to the royal’s abdication, and the contemporary story of a woman, Wally Winthrop, with romantic problems of her own, in addition to an obsession with the life of the Duchess of Windsor. And with all that pomp and circumstance going on, a classical score is unsurprisingly being prepped and the Queen Of Pop has ro...

    Composer Cliff Martinez Talks Score For 'Contagion' & Working With Steven Soderbergh

    Says Soderbergh Is Temping The Film With 'French Connection' & 'Marathon Man' ScoresEXCLUSIVE: Working at a relentless pace, Steven Soderbergh's work ethic has benefitted not only from his drive and focus, but from surrounding himself with a regular group of collaborators who understand his process and approach to filmmaking. And one of those regulars is composer Cliff Martinez (a former drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers too). He has worked with Soderbergh ever since his debut "sex, lies & videotape," contributing to films big and small including "Kafka," "Traffic," "The Limey," "King Of The Hill" and more.

    Film Described As "A Very Serious Oscar Contender"With the Cannes Film Festival lineup more or less set -- there will likely be a few more film announcements in the next couple of weeks as is usually the case -- the organizers at the Venice, Toronto, Telluride and other fall film festivals have already been making calls to try and get big-ticket films slotted into their festivals. Among the numerous high-profile films talked about as possibilities for Cannes was Tomas Alfredson's highly anticipated "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy." Before the lineup for Cannes was announced, reports circulated that it wasn't likely to make it as the film was st...

    Review, "Last Night": Keira Knightley In An Enjoyable Little Romance

    From its long delay in getting here, you’d expect the 2009 Keira Knightley romantic drama, Last Night, to be a disaster, but not at all. It’s merely small and slight, the kind of blithe little relationship film that feels more European than American.

    Jim Carrey Latest Big Star To Join Season Finale Of 'The Office'

    It may have suffered somewhat in recent seasons from a dip in form, especially compared to the superior nature of most of the rest of the NBC comedy line-up -- "Community," "Parks and Recreation" and "30 Rock" -- but for the most part, we've immensely enjoyed the last seven seasons of "The Office." While it may not be as near-flawless as the BBC series on which it was based, it's remained remarkably consistent across over ten times the length, thanks to a star-making performance from lead Steve Carell, and one of the deepest, richest comedic ensembles around, one that's helped to launch names like John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Ed Helms, a...
