    Darren Aronofsky Confirms Clint Mansell Is Scoring 'Noah,' Discusses Their Working Relationship

    Considering composer Clint Mansell has worked with Darren Aronofsky on all of the director's films to date, it's not a big shock that they will be working together once again. But still, it's nice to get some confirmation, and indeed, during a masterclass at the Marrakech Film Festival (...

    Oscilloscope Pick Up LCD Soundsystem Doc 'Shut Up And Play The Hits,' Netflix Buy David Tennant Soccer Drama 'United'

    Few thought that when Beastie Boy Adam Yauch set up distribution label Oscilloscope Laboratories to put out his 2008 directorial debut "Gunning For That #1 Spot," it would turn out to be anything other than a vanity side-project. But in fact, the company has evolved over the past four year...

    Clint Mansell's Score For 'Last Night' To Get A March 27th Release, Composer Playing L.A. Shows In Support

    The drama "Last Night," from director Massy Tadjedin, and starring Keira Knightley, Eva Mendes, Sam Worthington and Guillaume Canet, rather came and went last year. No one had paid much attention when it premiered at Toronto in 2010, and no one really paid much attention when it hit theate...

    That Explains The Trailer Music: Clint Mansell Scoring 'The Iron Lady'

    Just a couple of weeks ago, the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated, and likely Meryl Streep Oscar vehicle, "The Iron Lady" hit the interwebs and it was a little...odd. In addition to being much more lightweight than we expected a film about Margaret Thatcher to be, the most curious aspe...

    Clint Mansell Scores BBC TV Soccer Pic 'United'; Jonathan Goldsmith Tunes Up 'Take This Waltz'

    While next week's "Source Code" will be without a score by Clint Mansell who left the project citing scheduling conflicts and was replaced by Chris Bacon, the composer is certainly busy. Last month he was hired to score the videogame "Mass Effect 3" (take that Roger "video-games-aren't-art" Ebert!) ...

    Academy Disqualifies Scores For 'Black Swan,' 'True Grit' and Others From Oscar Consideration

    The trouble with the Academy awards, and indeed in putting too much stock in them, is that you're relying on the decisions being made by a relatively small, aging group of people. In many ways, things are improving -- Academy membership is getting younger, and it's starting to show: we can't imagine...

    Chris Bacon Replaces Clint Mansell On Scoring Duties For 'Source Code'

    Duncan Jones' forthcoming "Source Code" is certainly one we're looking forward to. We were impressed by his brainy, minimal, yet thrilling "Moon" and are eager to see where his talents take him on a much broader scale. And he's certainly surrounded himself with some pretty heavyweight talent. Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan and Jeffrey Wright all star in the upcoming film that follows a man who is part of an experimental government program investigating a terrorist incident. He finds himself in the body of an unknown commuter living and reliving a harrowing train bombing until he can find who is responsible for the attack. Bu...
