    Tracklist For 'Pearl Jam Twenty' Soundtrack Plus First Listen To 'Crown Of Thorns'

    In celebration of the band's 20th anniversary (yes, it's been that long, you're old), Cameron Crowe's documentary, "Pearl Jam Twenty" is right around the corner. Making its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, of course it wouldn't be a Pearl Jam film without a soundtrack. Comprised of live cuts and demos, the two-disc soundtrack will arrive on September 20th, to coincide with the doc, and will include 29 unreleased tracks. Highlights include "Black" from their still unreleased 1992 MTV Unplugged appearance, a Mother Love Bone cover of "Crown Of Thorns" during their 10th Anniversary tribute to deceased singer Andrew Wood (Mother Love Bone was a precursor band to PJ), and a Temple Of The Dog cover (another early PJ offshoot with members of Soundgarden). The disc will also include a 36-page booklet with liner notes written by Cameron Crowe packaged in a hard-bound book. There's also a 384-page book that arrives on September 13th if you're keen on stocking up on your PJ wares.

Based on the heart-wrenchingly bittersweet story of food writer, Nigel Slater’s childhood, and set to the songs of Dusty Springfield, TOAST is a delicious love letter to the tastes and smells that a young boy associates with his journey into adulthood."

    Reasons To Fall For The Swoony Romance "One Day"

    At first glance, it seems that whether audiences will swoon for One Day - with Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess as friends whose ever-changing two-decade relationship we see one day each year - has everything to do with Hathaway's star presence. But she is just one part of the three-way powerhouse behind the film.

    'Midnight In Paris' To Get Wide Re-Release On August 26th: The First Step In Sony's Oscar Strategy?

    Plus Third 'Diary Of A Wimpy Kid' Film Hits On August 3rd, 2012 A new Woody Allen film tends to come with lowered expectations these days. Knocking one out one a year, as he does, means there's rarely fevered excitement for the films: instead, mild curiosity as to who he's cast this time out, the inevitable scouring of reviews to see which critics have called it "a return to form," and keeping your fingers crossed that it's at least better than "Cassandra's Dream." So the surprise success of "Midnight In Paris" has become one of the biggest stories of the year: the film picked up rave reviews when it bowed at Cannes, and has now taken $50 million at the U.S. box office, making it Allen's biggest grosser ever -- not bad for what's essentially an upmarket, literary take on "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure."
