    Review: Vintage Footage In Sigur Ros Concert Doc 'Inni' Teases At A Much More Interesting Movie

    Sigur Ros has never needed much of a big stage production to get the power of their expansive, orchestral and otherworldly music across in concert. When this writer saw them perform at the intimate Théatre Maisonneuve in Montreal circa the release of Takk, they opened the show with the title track, a giant white screen in front of the stage obscuring the band, who were backlit, casting huge shadows as the music swelled. As they transitioned into "Glosoli," the screen slowly raised, revealing the band, and really that was all they needed to completely have the crowd in the palm of their hand. While Sigur Ros' rising popularity has allowed them...

    Metallica Plotting A 3D Movie

    Former metal giants, and now aging rock 'n roll dudes Metallica, have been on the wrong end of many decisions in the past while. If you're had the misfortune of hearing their forthcoming collaboration with Lou Reed, you'll know exactly what we mean. Or just look above at their ridiculous poses for the "Guitar Hero: Metallica," something these dudes wouldn't have even considered when their hair was longer and their tunes more badass. Or hell, even Lars Ulrich admitted recently he didn't get Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" and never followed up with the director when he asked to use their music for fight scenes in the movie. Although, that prob...

    MGM & Sony Get In The Ring For Eminem & Antoine Fuqua's Boxing Drama 'Southpaw'

    The past year has seen the boxing movie get a little bit of a resurgence. Of course, there was David O. Russell's "The Fighter," which jumped late into the Oscar race last year and went on to nab statutes for Christian Bale and Melissa Leo, and for the past two weeks, Hugh Jackman's robot boxing fli...

    Martin Scorsese & Mick Jagger's Music Drama At HBO Now Moving Forward

    Given the five thousand things Martin Scorsese is doing at any given moment, we kind of forgot about this project, a music drama with his long time Rolling Stones bud Mick Jagger, that was set up last summer over at HBO. Penned by "Boardwalk Empire" (on which Scorsese serves as executive producer) and "The Sopranos" writer Terence Winter, it was first announced under the working title "History Of Music," and was initially envisioned by Jagger as a feature film that followed two friends who work in the music industry across 40 years. William Monahan had actually penned a script over at Paramount where it was going under the title "The Long Pla...

    Lars Ulrich Regrets Turning Down Quentin Tarantino's Request For Metallica On 'Kill Bill' Soundtrack

    Chalk this up as yet another entry in the category of "What Could Have Been" but honestly, it's probably for the best that this never worked out.

    Michael Winterbottom Planning To Direct Beatles Movie 'The Longest Cocktail Party'

    'Four Lions' Writer Jesse Armstrong Penning Script For Liam Gallagher-Produced Film, But Johnny Depp Likely Won't Play LeadExclusive: Few directors have such a keen eye for music as Michael Winterbottom. From The Cranberries-stuffed soundtrack in his sophomore feature "Butterfly Kiss" to "24 Hour Party People," one of the best films about rock'n'roll ever made, to the perverse 50s cuts in last year's "The Killer Inside Me," he's always had a great sense for the right backdrop to the action, whether it be an original score or a song. And now, it looks like the director is heading towards tackling perhaps the Holy Grail of popular music, by mak...
