Daft Punk's robots aren't the only ones rocking the multiplex

French robot disco duo score soundtrack to Tron: Legacy (plus a cameo), as pop artists start to take top billing from actors

At the end of the trailer to forthcoming movie Somewhere, we are given just two pieces of information: 1) that the film was written and directed by Sofia Coppola; 2) that it features music by Phoenix. A soundtrack being billed above the star is, it's fair to say, unusual. And the fact that Thomas Mars, singer with the French group, is married to Coppola and is the father of her two daughters, has less to do with it than you'd think.

Movie soundtracks, even scores, lovingly crafted by stars of rock and pop, are all the rage right now. That other prominent French outfit, Daft Punk, also hit the big screen this month, having provided the music for green screen extravaganza Tron: Legacy. Not only do the world's greatest exponents »

Jennifer Aniston Not Going to Seduce Robert Pattinson on Screen

27 November 2010 12:00 AM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Contrary to recent rumor, Jennifer Aniston is not going to seduce Robert Pattinson on the silver screen. Her representative has debunked Daily Star's claim that the star of "The Bounty Hunter" has been begging her agents to set her up with the "Twilight Saga" hunk for a remake of 1967 flick "The Graduate", simply telling Gossip Cop the story is "absolutely false."

Just days earlier, Daily Star brought up report that the the 41-year-old actress is very keen to team up with the younger actor. "Jen's a huge fan of The Graduate. It's one of her favorite films and she would love to do a new version of it," an insider said before adding, "Jen thinks she and Rob would be the perfect duo to recreate the highly sexual roles."

"This film would allow Jen to do something raunchy and sophisticated after all the romantic comedies she's done and would give »

Swarm remake is coming!

18 November 2010 11:57 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The 1978 Irwin Allen classic disaster film gets an update. The Swarm was a big budget movie for its time and the cast was a who’s who of top actors, including Micheal Caine, Katherine Ross, Olivia de Havilland, Ben Johnson, Richard Windmark, Richard Chamberlain, Jose Ferrer, Patty Duke, Slim Pickens, Fred MacMurray and Henry Fonda.  A cast like that today would take the entire budget, leaving nothing left to film with. But despite this cast, Swarm is considered one of the worst epic disaster films ever. Caine himself claims it to be the worst he ever made (and he was in Jaws: The Revenge).

The remake will be produced by Roy Lee (The Ring) and Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity). Award-winning commercials director Ash Bolland is attached to direct and a writer is expected to be hired within the next month. Both films are based off the novel by Arthur Herzog ,who also wrote Orca, »

8 movie predictions the directors weren't expecting

17 November 2010 12:06 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Put flying cars, tablet-computers or laser-guns in a sci-fi movie and you can be fairly sure technology will catch up with (or even overtake) your film one of these days. But sometimes movies predict aspects of the future without any intention...

The Stepford Wives (1975) - Female 'androidiny'

Since Bryan Forbes' horror/thriller came out in 1975, the fictitious town of Stepford, Connecticut, has entered the language as a reference both to creepy and generic communities, and - more critically - regarding women who eschew decades of feminist struggle in their sublimation of self-image and individuality to the wishes of men.

When independent-minded photographer Katharine Ross moves to a sleepy community with her husband, she is initially amazed at the subservience of the Stepford wives to their husbands' wishes, appalled to see beautiful and talented women showing inordinate appreciation and servility to spouses that treat them as mere objects and with little respect. »

Remake Of Irwin Allen Killer Bee Movie 'The Swarm' In The Works

17 November 2010 6:03 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the last week or so, there've been whispers of a project on tracking boards and in the likes of Production Weekly: a potential remake of Irwin Allen's 1978 disaster movie "The Swarm." Featuring an all-star cast including the likes of Michael Caine, Katharine Ross, Richard Chamberlain, Olivia de Havilland, Patty Duke, Slim Pickens, Fred MacMurray and Henry Fonda battling killer bees in Texas, the film was a notorious flop, being pulled from theaters after two weeks, while Caine calls it the worst film of his career (no mean feat, considering some of his 70s/80s fare). Nevertheless, The Wrap, refusing… »

Classic 70s Disaster Horror The Swarm To Be Remade!

17 November 2010 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

In legendary actor Michael Caine's hay day during the late 70's he decided to star in the quite frankly, terrible, disaster-ish movie 'The Swarm'. Well it seems it's slow-burning cult status has certainly ramped up to the stage where it's now being pushed forward in the remake stakes. Vertigo Entertainment and Room 101 are set to produce the redo based on the tale of 'killer bees'. New Zealand director Ash Bolland, responsible for various MTV commercials, is set to helm the project. Henry Fonda, Richard Chamberlain, Katharine Ross, Lee Grant and Richard Widmark were just some of the names from the original. »

The Swarm Remake Planned

16 November 2010 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

What has Piranha 3D’s success spawned? Well, for one thing, it looks like we’re in for a wave of critter disaster (critaster?) movies getting remade. First up? Irwin Allen’s 1978 movie The Swarm, about killer bees from South America.Killer bees? Right (sits up, cracks knuckles)… The Internet is abuzz today with word flying in that The Ring producer Roy Lee and Paranormal Activity’s Steven Schneider are busy little bees developing a new take on the film, which saw entomologist Michael Caine stung with the job of stopping the Us military from attacking the angry insects, a plan he figures would only enrage them and see Houston overrun, resulting in trouble for a star-studded cast that included Katharine Ross, Richard Widmark, Richard Chamberlain, Olivia de Havilland and more. Okay, that’s enough bee-focused gags.According to The Wrap, the producers have attached ads director Ash Bolland to »

Hear the Latest Buzz? The Swarm is Being Remade!

16 November 2010 | | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

What's next, Frogs ... Squirm ?! Hollywood knows no end to the remake craze... This afternoon, The Wrap broke the news that a redo of 1978's The Swarm is in the works with producers Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment and Steven Schneider of Room 101. Directed by "disaster movie" auteur, Irwin Allen, The Swarm posed the question: What would happen if killer African bees invaded America? Well, they'd drive our cities into chaos! And Michael Caine, star of the original, would turn in a top-notch (insert sarcasm) "performance." Katharine Ross, Richard Widmark and Richard Chamberlain co-starred. Ash Bolland will direct the remake, although there is no writer yet. »

Sam Elliott hasn't heard from 'Spider-Man' ... yet

29 October 2010 3:52 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Sam Elliott may be high on a wish list for the forthcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, but he hasn't heard from the web-slinger's reps.

At least not yet.

As famous for his grizzled look as the deep, unmistakable voice that has promoted everything from beef to (currently) trucks, the veteran actor reportedly is among the top choices to play Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson in the next chapter of the Sony Pictures franchise that will introduce Andrew Garfield ("The Social Network") as the new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

"I had no idea," Elliott tells Zap2it of the apparent interest in him for the Jameson part. "I just like to work, and the first consideration is that it be decent work, good work. That said, I feel like I'm lucky. I've had this career for a long time. It's what I've wanted to do since I was a little kid, and I've just been blessed. »

"Back to the Future" in Blu, Uwe Boll's in "Darfur" and More New DVDs

25 October 2010 10:24 PM, PDT | | See recent IFC news »

A look at what's new on DVD today:

"Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy"

Directed by Robert Zemeckis

Released by Universal Home Entertainment

Yes, we're finally getting the footage of the original Marty McFly, Eric Stoltz, for the first time, but for many simply having the hi-def version of Robert Zemeckis' time-travel franchise will be good enough. Commentaries, deleted scenes, a full-length documentary and much, much more come on this new set of the trilogy.

"Alien Anthology"

Directed by Ridley Scott, James Cameron, David Fincher, Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Released by Fox Home Entertainment

While not as much of an upgrade over its previous DVD release as "Back to the Future," the Blu-ray update of the four "Alien" films worth owning now boasts isolated scores for each film, all of Ridley Scott's sketches for the first "Alien," the uncut documentary of David Fincher's ill-fated "Alien 3" as »

Michael Caine Reveals the Real Ending of 'Inception'... Or Does He?

30 September 2010 8:17 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

That ringing you hear in your ears right now -- that's the nifty spoiler alert we have here at MTV. And it's sounding because Sir Michael Caine has gone ahead and cleared up any ambiguity there is about the ending of this summer's best and most mind-melting movie, "Inception."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Caine -- who the plays dream-world inventor and Leonard DiCaprio's father-in-law/mentor in the film -- recently divulged all in an interview with BBC Radio. "[The spinning top] drops at the end, that's when I come back on," he says. "If I'm there it's real, because I'm never in the dream. I'm the guy who invented the dream." In other words, since the spinning top -- which would keep spinning if it's a dream and fall if it's not -- drops, DiCaprio's Dom Cobb does get his happy ending, and not in a dirty massage-parlor kind of way; he »

The Graduate Blu-ray Review

11 September 2010 9:24 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

What a superb film The Graduate (1967) is. No matter how many times I watch it, every line of dialogue, every scene, every song is spot on. It's a meticulously constructed, funny, truthful and uplifting coming-of age tale that's surely Dustin Hoffman's defining moment. Others may well cite Midnight Cowboy or even Rain Man, but for me he's Benjamin Braddock, the awkward and profoundly worried graduate facing an expectant and daunting post college world. You may have noticed I have somewhat strong feelings about this movie, so if you're looking for some sort of alternate retrospective take on Mike Nichols' landmark movie, look elsewhere.

The shy, intelligent "track star" Benjamin Braddock has graduated and is struggling with the unbearable pressure from his proud parents and their friends. Lauded by all, the intense attention is bewildering. Despite the best possible start in life and with his whole future ahead of him, »

Top Ten Taboo Relationships in Film

2 July 2010 6:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The latest Twilight film has hit theatres and I can do like every movie blog has done for the last three years running and make fun of the ridiculous vampire themes and werewolves or I can look at the real center piece of the film, the romance. With that I want to give everyone a look at my Top Ten Taboo Relationships in Film:

Special Mention: The Girlfriend Experience (2009) (dir. Steven Soderbergh)

When dating a prostitute you know there’re some taboos that you’re going to be dealing with.  It’s not even a secret in the relationship that she goes out at night and has sex with other men.  That alone will give a man more than enough trust issues to fill a therapist’s weekly schedule.  I kindly skirted this film out of the Top Ten only for the reason that we never have any other characters »

Movie Poster of the Week: "The American"

18 June 2010 11:53 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The dynamic new poster for Anton Corbijn’s The American is a clever pastiche of mid 60s action movie posters that trumpets its hipness (would we expect anything less from the director of Control?). With its two-color printing, its high-contrast photographs, its monochrome rectangle of color and its billing block within a white frame, it could be a lost object from that era. You can see some of its antecedents (of the more macho variety) below. There are a few major differences: those posters were nearly always printed non-bleed, hence the white frame, a case no doubt of cost dictating style (non-bleed printing being cheaper than bleed, two colors being cheaper than four). George Clooney however, is noticeably bursting out of the edge of the frame (I have a feeling the designers at Mojo had probably looked at Steve McQueen in the French poster for Bullitt). Another convention of the »

The 10 best screen psychoanalysts

12 June 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Hannibal Lecter to Frasier Crane, psychoanalyst Anouchka Grose chooses her 10 favourite celluloid shrinks

The Sopranos (1999-2007)

Dr Melfi (played by Lorraine Bracco) is the shrink most beloved of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Unlike so many of her made-up colleagues, she's consistently kind and professional. At least she was until the penultimate episode, where she ditched Tony after reading a study on the negative impact of therapy on the sociopath. Still, for the most part, she managed to remain a "broad, generic, sympathetic woman", to borrow the words she used to describe herself when Tony suddenly declared his love for her.

Shrink (2010)

Kevin Spacey's new movie sees him playing a compelling celluloid psychologist. He goes into meltdowns on chat shows, "self-medicates" with street drugs, and punches people in the face. While the point of most fictional therapists is to show the public that shrinks are generally flakier than they look, »

[DVD Review] The Louis L'Amour Western Collection

2 June 2010 8:37 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

It’s been said that Westerns are to America what Shakespeare is to England. The Western genre has been an important and iconic part of our heritage, whether in film, TV or in print. And one of the most popular and prolific Western authors was Louis L’Amour.

L’Amour had a long career writing Western fiction, which he liked to call “Frontier Stories”. L’Amour wrote 89 books from 1930 to the late 1980s. Many of his stories were made into movies and all his books are still in print. He was a favorite author of Western film superstar John Wayne. “The Louis L’Amour Western Collection” brings three film adaptations of L’Amour novels to DVD for the first time.

The first of these L’Amour adaptations is The Sackets, a two-part made-for-tv retelling of two of L’Amour’s novels (The Daybreakers and Sackett) from “The Sacketts” series. The »

Onscreen Moms We Love -- to Hate

8 May 2010 9:08 PM, PDT | Extra | See recent Extra news »

For every "good" onscreen mom, who made chicken soup and gave cute haircuts, there's a not-so-good one, who may have put a little arsenic in that soup or used those scissors to cut, um, other things.

So instead of celebrating those wonderful onscreen moms, let's hear it for the moms who aren't so loving, can be horribly manipulative, or are even downright homicidal -- the celluloid mothers we love to hate.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford: A psychological Maze

6 May 2010 12:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I confess that this movie made me fall asleep after the first half hour. When I woke up, certain images from the film persisted in my memory (Roger Deakin’s play with light and shadow of the approaching train), nagging me to view the film once again from the start. To my surprise, on my second attempt, I found it to be one of those rare films which do not provide much evidence of good cinema in the early sequences while it provides such evidence much later on. And this is a rather long (2hr 40min) film. However, the film gradually entices the viewer to keep watching with the filmmaking competence improving as the film keeps un-spooling. By the end of the movie, it is quite likely that a patient viewer will not feel cheated by the director Andrew Dominik but instead admire his work that is a cocktail of delicate performances, »
