Sherlock, and the musical highlights of Sherlock Holmes

15 January 2017 5:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Wilson Jan 16, 2017

From the BBC's Sherlock, through Disney, Hans Zimmer and Young Sherlock Holmes: we salute the music of Mr Holmes...

Few characters have enjoyed as much reinvention as Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuth Sherlock Holmes, an enduring icon who is as much bound up with the history of cinema (and indeed stage, TV and radio) as he is with literature. Indeed, adaptations of Holmes stories stretch right the way back to the earliest days of film at the start of the 20th century. Fittingly enough given Holmes' penchant for a violin serenade, the musical scores to his adventures are as richly varied as the outcomes to his mysteries are unexpected. Here are Holmes' musical highlights, from Buster Keaton through to Benedict Cumberbatch.

Sherlock Jr. (1924)

Not, strictly speaking, a Sherlock movie but as the title implies, the legacy of the character casts a long shadow over Buster Keaton's silent classic. »

Beauty & The Beast: Emma Watson Talks Up Her Love Of Belle, Plus New International Poster

13 January 2017 4:04 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

You can say a lot of things about Disney, but you can’t say the studio doesn’t know how to exploit the hell out of nostalgia. As the producer of many of film’s greatest animated classics, they’ve shaped many of our childhoods, and as a result, have also shaped many of our futures.

In a trend that’s been nearly impossible to ignore, they’ve been remaking some of these classics into big budget live-action productions. Thus far, the result has been mostly positive, with only such films as Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland muddying up the waters (though to be fair, one is a re-imagining, and the other is a sequel, so…). The next movie on the slate to get remade is none other than the 1991 Best Picture nominee Beauty and the Beast.

Thanks to the recent trailers, as well as the numerous production stills released, »

Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10-time Grammy, Oscar-winning and multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/ musician John Legend are set to perform the Oscar and Grammy-winning duet "Beauty and the Beast" as the title track for Disney's upcoming soundtrack to the live-action film adaptation Beauty and the Beast.

Between Beauty and the Beast and Noah Hawley’s imminent Legion series, February is shaping up to be an exciting month for fans of all things Dan Stevens.

The actor, who is perhaps best known for his performance as Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey, will take point as the unsightly Beast in Bill Condon’s upcoming live-action fairytale, a role he considers to be the “most challenging” he’s ever taken on. Chatting to IGN at the ongoing TV Critics Association press tour, Stevens spoke about the demanding physicality of Beauty and the Beast, which had him donning 10-inch stilts and a creature mask during filming.

“Physically, the Beast is the most challenging role I’ve taken on. The condition I had to have my body in to puppeteer that suit on stilts was like nothing else I’ve ever experienced, seriously. The kind of engagement »

Back to the Stage: Interview with No Man's Land stars Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellenBack to the Stage: Interview with No Man's Land stars Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellenRichard Crouse1/10/2017 10:11:00 Am

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen may be adversaries in the X-Men films but they are best friends in real life.

The pair met while working at Stratford-upon-Avon’s Royal Shakespeare Company in the 1970s. McKellen remembers they eyed each other from afar, but adds, “we didn’t become close friends until much later.”

“I probably could have attempted a friendship but I was so intimidated by my friend at that time,” Stewart says playfully. “That’s all gone now.”

The two bring their personal chemistry to a West End remounting of their 2013 Broadway hit, Harold Pinter’s No Man's Land that will be broadcast live to Cineplex cinemas from Wyndham’s Theatre, London.
