    While it's been rumored in quieter circles for some time now, it's since been confirmed that eight-time Oscar nominated composer James Newton Howard (everything from "Liar Liar," to "The Dark Knight") will be scoring Martin Campbell's upcoming sci-fi superhero flick, "Green Lantern."

    Watch: Official Video For A.R. Rahman & Dido's "If I Rise" From '127 Hours'

    Though it has unfortunately and undeservedly fallen off the awards season radar, "127 Hours" still remains one of 2010's best films, a frenetic, energetic and harrowing piece of work that uses the story of a man losing his arm to weave a larger thematic web about the importance of human connectivity...

    Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Scoring David Fincher's 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'

    David Fincher's "The Social Network" has been praised and well, maybe not entirely loved, in many circles, but all seem to be in agreement that the film sounded unlike anything released in 2010, thanks to the pulsating and moody electronic score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The Nine Inch Nail...

    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...

    Jon Brion Scoring Miranda July's Upcoming Film 'The Future'

    The Official Synopsis Has Also ArrivedOk, Miranda July's "The Future" heading to Sundance? We maybe should have waited a beat. Earlier today, an IonCinema report said, July's new relationships-in-turmoil drama was heading to Utah, but upon reflection there's no sourcing of that claim. We quickly emailed the writer who said, vaguely, "that's not official." Sigh, ok, whatever. We started our own digging and it turns out a hopeful speculation we made back in 2008 is correct: lauded composer/musician Jon Brion -- known for his beloved "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind," "Punch Drunk Love," and "I Heart Huckabees" scores -- is writing the mu...
