The Top 12 Composers of the 21st Century, From Hans Zimmer to Nick Cave

7 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In an age where special effects reign supreme, there’s one aspect of the filmmaking process that hasn’t gone through a radical transformation — music. Some of the best movies in any given year would be sorely lacking without their memorable scores, and this has remained true well into the first two decades of the 21st century.

Film composers play an integral part in the filmmaking process, and there are a handful whose bodies of work stand out in recent years. Of course, this list of 12 major composers only begins to scratch the surface of the talent out there. There are plenty of other worthy contributors to the medium who didn’t make the cut — Danny Elfman and John Williams, we’re looking at you — but rest assured that this top dozen represent the cream of the crop.

30 Things We Learned from James Mangold’s ‘3:10 to Yuma’ Commentary

26 April 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“No one, and I mean no one wanted to make this movie.”

James Mangold delivered one of this year’s best films with Logan, and among its many acclaimed aspects is its vibe and feel of a modern-day western. It’s something he’s done before with Cop Land, but Mangold also made a point of directing an actual western as well.

Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for…

3:10 to Yuma (2007)

Commentator: James Mangold (director)

1. He assumes the first question we might have for him regarding this film is “why” make a remake at all? “That original film had had such power on me ever since I saw it when I was seventeen years old, and I felt that the story could have power again in a very relevant way now.”

2. While he thinks most remakes are motivated by greed in his eyes for easy, recognizable »

Hugh Jackman and Noomi Rapace to Star in Michael Mann’s Ferrari Biopic

8 March 2017 12:47 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michael Mann’s Ferrari movie may make it to the finish line after all. Hugh Jackman is now in negotiations to star as Enzo Ferrari in the biopic, with Noomi Rapace playing his estranged wife Linda; Christian Bale was previously attached to the long-in-the-making film, but departed early last year due to a scheduling conflict.

Troy Kennedy-Martin (“The Italian Job,” “Edge of Darkness”) wrote the screenplay, which takes place in 1957 and is based on Brock Yates’ book “Enzo Ferrari, the Man, the Cars, the Races.” Mann first began working on the project in the very early aughts, initially in collaboration with the late Sydney Pollack.

Film Critics Pick the Best Superhero Movie Performance — IndieWire Critics Survey

6 March 2017 10:37 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Iconic, textured, and scarred beneath the surface, Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Logan puts the “human” in “superhuman.” In honor of his recent farewell as the man formerly known as Wolverine, we’ve asked our panel of critics to name the best performance in the history of superhero movies.

Charles Bramesco (@intothecrevasse), Freelance for Vox, Vulture, the Verge

My head tells me the correct answer is probably something like Heath Ledger’s swan song as “The Dark Knight”‘s rabid Joker or Michelle Pfeiffer as the kinked-up Catwoman in “Batman Returns.” But my heart’s in a cage — Nic Cage, to be specific. I recently revisited the »

Rose McGowan Composed an Alternative National Anthem Called ‘Planet 9’ — Listen

5 March 2017 12:06 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dazed recently asked 12 different artists to compose alternative national anthems, Rose McGowan among them. The actress, director and singer responded to that call to action with the spoken-word piece “Planet 9,” a feminist anthem she describes as a “new place where we are all safe and loved.” Listen below.

Here’s McGowan’s statement about her song: “I feel like women have not been able to properly mourn what it means to lose to this man and all men, continually. This one feels particularly vicious, but what he’s about is what we’ve been saying all along. The system is rigged against women. I wanted to give voice to our emotions and thoughts. I’ve spoken to so many women about how we are not represented in the media in the aftermath of the election.

‘Deadpool 2’ Teaser Airing Before ‘Logan’ Spoofs Superman and ‘True Romance’ — Watch

4 March 2017 12:15 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hugh Jackman’s “Logan” opened in theaters this Friday, and moviegoers were treated to a special teaser featuring Deadpool. In the clip, the superhero spoofs Superman and the iconic 1993 film “True Romance.”

In the teaser, Wade Wilson witnesses an armed robbery as he walks down a run-down street. After vowing that this will not happen on his watch, he runs to a nearby phone booth to change into his Deadpool costume —very much like Superman does— as John William’s iconic score from the 1978 superhero movie plays in the background. But unfortunately, the superhero spends too much time putting on his uniform and by the time he’s ready he hears a gunshot and then finds the victim dead.

‘Logan’ Composer Marco Beltrami on R-Rated Wolverine Minimalist Score

3 March 2017 11:31 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold both wanted to end the Wolverine saga on a grace note. The fact that it’s uncompromisingly brutal (fully justifying its R-rating) only reinforces the final salvation. It’s their version of western classic “Shane,” and the minimalist score from Marco Beltrami (Oscar-nominated for “The Hurt Locker”) hits the right emotional chord.

“I knew it was going to be tricky because the visuals were going to lead and the music played more of a textural role,” Beltrami told IndieWire. “Jim didn’t want a [traditional] thematic score — he wanted an emotionally supportive score. So there was a delicate balance, and I experimented with some unique instruments for it.”

For “The Old Man Logan” theme (which you can listen to below courtesy of Lakeshore Records), this included Hammond organ, glass harmonica, and drum kits. This established the world-weary mood of the mutant hiding out in a »

‘Logan’: 10 Ways Hugh Jackman and James Mangold Convinced Fox to Make A Bold and Bloody Superhero Movie

3 March 2017 10:52 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Logan” will open huge this weekend, but the well-reviewed R-rated “Wolverine” sequel starring Hugh Jackman will provide Hollywood with something it needs more than great box office: It means permission to challenge the status quo.

Studios are in trouble. Box office is down four percent for the year to date — and the main culprit is combining familiar franchise properties with tried-and-true formulas.

Of course, “Logan” is the 10th installment in the “X-Men” franchise, which 20th Century Fox launched 16 years ago with producer Lauren Shuler Donner. But “Wolverine” director James Mangold didn’t direct it like a sequel.

Here’s how Mangold threw out the studio rulebook — and why Fox let him.

1. Get the backing of a major star.

Immediately after finishing “Wolverine” in 2013, Jackman and Mangold had a chat: Did they want to do this movie again? “If there was one, it would be his last one,” Mangold told me in a telephone interview. »

“Logan” is one of the best comic book adaptations of all time

2 March 2017 9:11 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s rare that a comic book or superhero movie becomes truly critically acclaimed and catches on with awards season. It happened with The Dark Knight, for example. To a lesser extent, it happened last year with Deadpool. This week, Logan opens and very well might become the next. This is not only one of the most mature outings of this nature, it’s one of the most violent as well. Closer to a western than an action flick, it’s really something special. Fans of Wolverine will both be delighted and shocked at what everyone has accomplished here. This film really gets 2017 going. The year has its first actually great movie now. The film is the latest in a long line of X-Men sequels, while also functioning as a third solo Wolverine flick. It’s a loose adaptation of the Old Man Logan storyline, set in the future and »

Exclusive: Stream Marco Beltrami’s “X-24” From The ‘Logan’ Soundtrack

2 March 2017 7:13 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Logan” is not your standard superhero movie, and in fact, it shakes off many off the tropes we’ve come to associate with the genre. James Mangold‘s film offers a despairing view of Wolverine, a broken man, who’s chasing his demons down the bottle, in a picture that often feels more like a western than your average blockbuster. It’s those qualities that make the film so unique, and the aim to do something different carried over to the score, with Oscar-nominated composer Marco Beltrami (“3:10 To Yuma,” “The Hurt Locker“) meeting the challenge head-on.

Warner Bros. Facing Lawsuit Over 'Lucifer' Title Music

10 February 2017 6:44 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Warner Bros. is now in court over allegations that the studio failed the devilish details before using the main title theme music to the Fox series Lucifer

In California federal court, Robert Marderosian and Aron Marderosian (known as the "Mardos") say they were approached in October 2015 by Marco Beltrami, an Oscar-nominated composer (The Hurt Locker, 3:10 to Yuma).

"When Beltrami approached the Mardos, he was desperate," states the complaint. "Beltrami was not able to capture the essence of what Warner Bros. and Ns Pictures were looking for in the main title theme for the Series, and each of the »

Logan synopsis, new images and a hint of the score revealed

16 January 2017 2:49 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

We’re due another trailer for James Mangold’s second Wolverine X-Men film this week. If it’s anything like the the amazing first teaser trailer we’re in for a treat. Logan is setting itself up to be a very different type of X-Men film. The ending of X-Men Apocalypse, apart from being something of a blessed relief, laid the breadcrumbs from which we can ascertain some of the plot for what Hugh Jackman is calling his last film as the iconic laconic superhero.

The casting of Richard E. Grant, and the subsequent image released online by the director, gave us the identity of the big bad in this new film. Grant will play Dr. Zander Rice, the man responsible for creating X-23 who will accompany Logan on his journey in true The Last of Us style. Dafne Keen is X-23, or Laura Kinney, and much »

Over the past few weeks, director James Mangold and the entire Logan team have been working diligently to put the finishing touches on their upcoming superhero sequel, just in time for its worldwide premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, and with each passing day, they seem to be getting closer and closer to the finish line.

Earlier this month, director James Mangold promised that “Logan” would be a grown up movie for adults, and it looks like he’s being true to his word. We learned earlier this week that the R-rated movie was going to be doing something quite rare for a superhero movie — it was going to premiere at the film festival, in this case, next month at Berlin. But for those of you concerned Wolverine has gone arthouse, don’t fear.
