    Alexander Ebert Talks Scoring 'All Is Lost,' Getting Robert Redford To Surrender & Almost Making A Musical With Heath Ledger

    Of all the survival narratives this fall, and there are many, director J.C. Chandor's "All Is Lost" is perhaps the most beautifully counter intuitive. If "Gravity" is the maximalist thrill ride in space, then "All Is Lost," it its opposite, a minimalist, moody, near wordless meditation of a man (Rob...

    Composer Jerod Tate Reportedly Scoring Terrence Malick's (Still) Untitled Next Movie

    It's hard to believe, but Terrence Malick essentially has three movies on the way, something we never thought we'd type. There is his "Voyage Of Time" documentary that has Brad Pitt and Emma Thompson signed up to narrate; that mystery Christian Bale project that popped up filming at the Austin City Limits music festival last month (more on that in a moment) and the already wrapped, and still untitled drama with Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Barry Pepper, Charles Baker and in a small role, Jessica Chastain. Of the trio of pictures, this one seems to be the one closest to the finish line and it look l...

    Beautiful Trailer, Bland Poster Debut For 3D Stop-Motion Animated ‘ParaNorman’

    2011 hasn’t exactly been an exceptional year for animated films. Besides this spring’s deliciously strange “Rango” and this summer’s gorgeous, supple “Winnie the Pooh,” there hasn’t been a whole lot to fawn over, animation-wise. (When Pixar unloads a colossal letdown like “Cars 2,” you know the medium is having an “off year.”) Thankfully, 2012 is poised to be an embarrassment of riches, with new movies from proven studios like Blue Sky (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”), Illumination ("The Lorax"), Disney ("Wreck-It Ralph" and Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie") Aardman (“The Pirates! Band of Misfits”) and the beloved Studio Ghibli (“The Secret World o...

    Hans Zimmer Decides To Sit Out The Oscar Race This Year

    With eight Academy award nominations leading to one win for "The Lion King," composer Hans Zimmer certainly doesn't have anything to prove. Prolific and inventive, he's one of the best in the business, and even with nearly three decades of work tuning up movies, his works remain continually fresh and creative. This year alone has the fifty-four year-old composer taking some fascinating strides, teaming with the Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela for both "Rango" and “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” Of course, we don't have to tell you that the man behind the excellent scores for (the Oscar nominated) "Inception" and "The Dark...
