    Mysterious New Sigur Rós Film 'Inni' To Play Venice Film Festival Sidebar Venice Days

    It has been three years since Sigur Rós dropped their last album Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust, a game changer of sorts, one that pushed their epic, brooding and expansive sound slightly to the sound for something a bit more percussive, tribal and poppy than we've seen from the band. Since then, it's largely been radio silence. Frontman Jónsi has embarked on a solo career, releasing the album Go and taking a pretty colorful live show around the world, and of course, he's recently been tapped to score Cameron Crowe's "We Bought A Zoo."

    Watch: Official Video For Jonsi's "Sticks And Stones" From 'How To Train Your Dragon'

    If there is any real competition to "Toy Story 3" in the Best Animated Feature race at this year's Oscars it will be from DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon." While it was certainly a box office success, the film also won over audiences and critics with the kind of praise that is usually only reserved for films from the Pixar braintrust. One of nicest touches in the film was the hiring of Sigur Rós frontman Jonsi to pen a tune for the film, marking a nice deviation from the standard practice of hiring a pop-star-of-the-movement, though upon further inspection, the move wasn't totally out of left field.
