Hollywood Reacts to James Horner's Death

23 June 2015 5:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

On Monday, legendary film composer James Horner died in a plane crash near Santa Barbara in which he was apparently piloting. Horner, who composed classic films such as Aliens, Avatar, Apollo 13 and Titanic touched millions of people around the world with his unforgettable scores.

C&#233line Dion, who sang "My Heart Will Go On" co-written by Horner for the movie Titanic, said:

"Rene and I are deeply saddened by the tragic death of James Horner. He will always remain a great composer in our hearts. James played an important part in my career. We will miss him. We offer his family and friends our deepest sympathy."

Fellow composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel) had this to say about Horner:

"It is a tragedy for all composers to hear about James Horner's accident. We have lost one of our most talented and respected colleagues. His music will remain always. »

‘Jurassic World,’ ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and Tom Holkenborg’s new shit

17 June 2015 4:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jurassic World is fine. Massive blockbuster earnings aside, it’s neither contrived enough to feel like another lesser sequel  nor original enough to stray too far from Spielberg’s 1993 original. That uneasy cradle — between ingenuity and brand loyalty — is where tentpole franchises and their music have come to rest. With Furious 7, Atlantic Records threw dub step and electro-house music onto another collection of so-so promotional hip-hop. Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson only squeak out brief homages to John Barry rather than admit how indebted to Roger Moore Bond Kingsman: The Secret Service really is. Even Danny Elfman and Brian Tyler never stray far from Alan Silvestri’s original “Transformers meets Mission Impossible” theme in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Blockbuster movie composition is, like the studio system in 2015, sturdy, safe and kinda boring. Michael Giacchino’s score for Jurassic World is the latest to fit the mold. Like the movie itself, »

How Hollywood soundtracks repeat the same old tune

9 June 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If you see a movie for the first time and swear you've heard the score before, it may not be your imagination...

Last month, the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (Afm) sued six major studios for reusing film soundtracks in other films without paying the appropriate compensation. It's the kind of news that will make people roll their eyes. Ah yes, they'll say after seeing the headlines. Typical Hollywood. Not even the music's original any more.

But go beyond the headlines about reusing the same music too much and delve into the lawsuit and it reveals an interesting insight into the kind of situations where music does get repeated.

The lawsuit, it soon becomes evident, isn't about the use of music in itself (a quick browse through the soundtracks for the titles in question, such as This Means War or Argo, reveals that they have »

Film Review: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

21 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three years after saving New York from an alien apocalypse, Marvel’s superhero all-stars once again find the weight of the world — or, at least, an airborne chunk of Eastern Europe — thrust upon their mighty shoulders in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a super-sized spandex soap opera that’s heavy on catastrophic action but surprisingly light on its feet, and rich in the human-scale emotion that can cut even a raging Hulk down to size. Having gotten over the hump of assembling his six main characters in 2012’s “The Avengers,” returning writer-director Joss Whedon brings a looser, more inventive and stylish touch to this skillful follow-up, which finds our now S.H.I.E.L.D.-less defenders facing off against a man-made enemy more dangerous than any alien life form. Jump-starting the summer movie season on May 1, “Age” may well cool its heels in theaters until the dog days of August, »

Joss Whedon’s Star-Studded ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Premiere Is ‘A Little Surreal’

14 April 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The spectacle of Monday’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood was a heroic effort to match a movie of such epic proportions.

Hundreds of screaming fans lined Hollywood Boulevard just to catch a glimpse of stars like Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett JohanssonJeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr., who rolled onto the carpet Tony Stark-style, fashionably late in an Audi sports car complete with an “Avengers” license plate.

Ruffalo (who plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk) opened up about his character, confessing that sometimes when he watches himself, he thinks, “Do I really do that face? Do I really look like that?” In this “Avengers” follow-up, the big green monster has some tender moments, but Ruffalo commented that his role involves “mostly smashing, crashing and bashing.”

Elizabeth Olsen made a bold claim about her character, Scarlet Witch — who first appeared in the »

19 March 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I don’t have friends. I got family.

These seven words have come to exemplify the very heart of the Fast & Furious franchise, both for the faithful team of characters on screen and the band of actors, filmmakers and crew who have grown as tight as any bloodline over the course of seven movies together. At its outset, 15 years ago, no one could have foreseen that the destiny of this story about a team of street racers in East L.A. would transform into one of the most popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time.

Now, Furious 7 arrives as the crowning achievement in this ongoing saga—the best, biggest and most fulfilling Fast & Furious movie yet. For every person in the Fast & Furious family—those on screen, those behind the camera and those who count themselves among its vast and varied fans around the world: This one is special. »

Danny Elfman Says He's Working On A "Hybrid" Theme For 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron,' Plus New Poster

16 March 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last month, a new poster for "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" revealed that Danny Elfman was providing "additional material" to Brian Tyler's score. It was an interesting little nugget of info, but now the composer himself has detailed what exactly his work will be on Joss Whedon's upcoming sequel. "...I've contributed music to the new 'Avengers' movie. I took part of Alan Silvestri's theme on the original [movie], which I really liked, and I pulled it into it the new theme, which became kind of a hybrid. I really enjoyed that," he told 891 ABC Adelaide (via MovieWeb). So, keep your ears out for that. In the meantime, Ultron takes center stage in the latest poster for this Marvel movie. If he wasn't hellbent on destroying the superhero team, maybe he could be the first robot supermodel. 'Age Of Ultron' arrives on May 1st. »

Review: 'Furious 7' takes over for unforgettable night at the SXSW Film Festival

16 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - One of the things that impresses me most about the team that throws the SXSW Film Festival in Austin every year is how adaptable they are. I've seen them roll with all sorts of things, and they seem to me to be open to all sorts of ideas in terms of programming. There was nothing originally scheduled for the Sunday night midnight slot at the Paramount, but when I woke up on Sunday morning, the festival had announced a very special treat for anyone who had a badge for the festival, and anticipation was running high because of which title it was. This coming weekend, I'll be attending the junket for "Furious 7," so I was already scheduled to see the film. But seeing it tonight at the Paramount Theater, completely packed with lunatic movie fans who were all crazy excited to be there was better than any junket screening possibly could be. »

Danny Elfman to Rework 'Avengers' Theme for 'Age of Ultron'

13 March 2015 8:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March 2014, we reported that Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World composer Brian Tyler has been set to provide the score for the Marvel Phase Two sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. Some fans may have been a bit disappointed, though, since that meant composer Alan Silvestri, who created the iconic Avengers theme in Marvel's The Avengers, wouldn't be back for the sequel. When Marvel unveiled the official poster last month, it was revealed that Danny Elfman was credited with creating "additional music" for the sequel, and during an interview with 891 ABC Adelaide, the composer revealed he is actually reworking Alan Silvestri's original Avengers theme. Here's what he had to say below.

"I was doing the same thing actually just last week because I've contributed music to the new Avengers movie. I took part of Alan Silvestri's theme on the original [movie], which I really liked, and »

Composer Danny Elfman To Rework The Avengers Original Theme Into Age Of Ultron Score

13 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been known for quite some time now that Avengers: Age of Ultron will be scored by Brian Tyler (Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World) instead of the original composer Alan Silvistri. However, it wasn't known until late last month that four-time Academy Award-nominated composer Danny Elfman (Batman and Spider-Man) will be "contributing additional music" to the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel. Elfman recently spoke with 891 ABC Adelaide about re-imagining other people's scores which led to him discussing Age of Ultron. "I was doing the same thing actually just last week because I've contributed music to the new Avengers movie," revealed the composer. "I took part of Alan Silvestri's theme on the original [movie], which I really liked, and I pulled it into it new theme, which became kind of a hybrid. I really enjoyed that." So, despite new composers coming on board to score Avengers: Age of Ultron, it seems »

New Avengers: Age Of Ultron Poster Has All Kinds Of Interesting Credits

25 February 2015 12:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

The credit block on a poster is important, giving recognition to the people who have worked hard to make the movie. Or at least some of the people – that epic scroll at the end of the movie is for almost everybody, and the poster is for the most important, or arguably, the ones with the best agents.

Some of the credits on the new poster for The Avengers: Age of Ultron are pretty special and worth a closer look. Moreso than the actual poster image, which is like a bad dream with weird perspective, focus and faux-lighting glitches creating all sorts of ugliness.

Perhaps the most interesting details in the credit block are amongst the most obvious. Listed as being in the cast are Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba and Stellan Skarsgard. Before all of those – coming right after the core Avengers, in fact – is Don Cheadle. »

New Official Avengers: Age Of Ultron Poster; Confirms 'Falcon' And Spider-man Composer

24 February 2015 8:10 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A brand new theatrical poster has finally been released in anticipation of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it features the whole gang, including the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, the Vision, as well as the titular villain's evil robot army. In addition to Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell, and Stellan Skarsgard, buried in the credits is also confirmation that Anthony Mackie will be returning as Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, even though the Captain America: The Winter Soldier actor has denied it very recently. Furthermore, according to Badass Digest, those additional credits are cameos that will come into play during hallucination/nightmare sequences in Age of Ultron. Anyhow, as the one-sheet also reveals that four-time Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman, who worked on the original Hulk and Spider-Man movies, will bring "additional material" to Brian Tyler's score, what do you think?
