Sony Pictures Classics has released the first video, along with three new images, from Truth.

Starring Robert Redford as Dan Rather, Cate Blanchett, Topher Grace, Bruce Greenwood, Elisabeth Moss, and Dennis Quaid, the film premieres on Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Truth is an independent feature film based on the book Truth and Duty: the Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power by Mary Mapes.

Check out the clip below. (via EW)

On the morning of September 9, 2004, veteran CBS News producer Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett) believed she had every reason to feel proud of a broadcast journalism job well done.

By the end of the day, Mapes, CBS News, and the venerable CBS News anchor Dan Rather (Robert Redford) would be under harsh scrutiny.

The evening before, 60 Minutes II had aired an investigative report, produced by Mapes and reported on-air by Rather, that purported to reveal new »

50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

1 September 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When we asked our staff to vote on the best comic book movie adaptations, we were afraid the results would consist only of superhero films. While there are many superhero movies listed below, it is great to see a bulk of non-Hollywood films appearing on the list as well. We set out to compile a list of 50 movies but as it were, we ended up with 5 ties, and so the list consists 55 films instead. Let us know if you think we missed something. Enjoy!

55. The Adventures of Tintin

Spielberg’s first venture into animation is one of his best. Taking notes from the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark playbook, Spielberg crafted another spirited, thrilling, and always entertaining adventure. The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most pleasurable, family-friendly experiences, that boils down to one grand treasure hunt. There’s much to admire on-screen, but it is the spectacular »

The Best Film Scores of 2015 (So Far)

21 July 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Either I’ve been staying on top of my homework or 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for film scores already. From blockbuster disappointments to indie oddities and mindless action sequels, film music has once again shown it can transcend its respective dreck just as much as it can enhance the cinematic experience. With film festival season on the horizon, let’s check in with the best movie music of the year:

8. ChappieHans Zimmer, Steve Mazzaro, Andrew Kawczynski

Neil Blomkamp’s movies seem to be getting worse, but Hans Zimmer’s sensibilities are getting more exotic and daring. Course-correcting from the massive publicity stunt that was The Amazing Spider-man 2, the master of bombast continues to experiment with digital textures, recruiting pupils Kawczyksnki and Mazzaro for a score that humanizes and contextualizes the childish perspective of its Robocop with a heart of gold.

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.”

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. »
