Sure, there was his score for Alain Resnais' "Stavisky," a few original songs for Warren Beatty's "Dick Tracy" and co-writing the script ...

    'Black Swan' Soundtrack Featuring Score By Clint Mansell Hits Stores November 30th

    This writer, to his eternal shame, has something of a tin ear for classical music. Generally speaking, if a piece of music doesn't have at least one chorus, or is part of a film score, we tend to glaze over a little bit.

    Aaron Sorkin Writing, Danny Elfman Scoring 'Houdini' Broadway Musical For Hugh Jackman

    You wouldn't necessarily know it from his frequently gruff screen persona, but Hugh Jackman has a long background in stage musicals -- he was plucked from his role in "Oklahoma" at the National Theatre in London to play Wolverine a decade ago, and has generally leaned towards the action end of the spectrum on the big-screen, despite the development of the likes of a musical based around P.T. Barnum, an adaptation of "Carousel," and his attachment to the sadly dead Steven Soderbergh-directed 3D "Cleo," in which Jackman would have starred alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones and Ray Winstone, to a score by Guided By Voices -- a project we'd sit throu...

    While James Franco's performance in Danny Boyle's "127 Hours" is a remarkable feat, and a career defining turn for the actor, the soundtrack to the film, is another integral ingredient in the picture's powerful emotional impact.
