When Cameron Crowe is firing on all cylinders, you can expect a few things from his films: great dialogue, sparkling chemistry between the cast, and great tunes. And while we'll have to wait for the full movie to weigh in on the first two points, on the latter, things are promising. Two new songs by Jónsi & Alex will feature on the soundtrack that will also include Hawaiian music legends Genoa Keawe and The Royal Hawaiian Serenaders, along with tracks by Beck, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac, Kurt Vile, Josh Ritter, The Tallest Man on Earth, and more. Not too shabby. And today a couple new clips have arrived.

You would think Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone would have hung out a lot more off set while filming Aloha in Hawaii. "We barely saw each other," Stone told E! News while promoting the movie (in theaters on May 29). "We were at totally different ends of the island, which was actually kind of far." But then the lease was up at Cooper's place. "I did live in your house the last week," the actor said. "We were roommates," Stone said, before Cooper quickly said, "Housemates!" "You had your own little section…your little enclave," Stone said. In the Cameron Crowe-directed movie, Cooper plays a military contractor who returns to »
This Friday, Cameron Crowe is taking audiences to Hawaii in the star-studded romance "Aloha." As we all know, a movie from the writer/director is always combined with a carefully curated and top shelf soundtrack, and today we have a handful of copies to give away to some lucky readers. Beck, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac, Kurt Vile, The Blue Nile, Radical Face, The Tallest Man On Earth, and Jónsi & Alex are among the artists lending tracks to the film. These songs will power the movie that features Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin in the tale of a celebrated military contractor who returns to the site of his greatest career triumph and reconnects with a long-ago love while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog (Emma Stone) assigned to him.

One of my favorite filmmakers out there is Cameron Crowe, bar none. He’s responsible for some of the most enjoyable and memorable cinema of the past few decades, so whenever a new film of his arrives, it’s something that I look forward to in a big way. As such, this week’s release of Aloha is one that’s been on my movie calendar for a while now. The director is returning to a project that he’d originally intended to be his follow up to Elizabethtown (a film that I unabashedly love, even if I’m in the minority), so it’s clear it means something to him. When I see it later tonight (we’re embargoed on discussing it until later in the week, by the by), hopefully that passion is reflected. The film (once called Deep Tiki and rumored to star Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon »

The Media Action Network for Asian Americans (Manaa) has taken particular issue with the film's cultural appropriation of the term 'aloha' for its title, while also accusing it of not accurately representing the region's ethnic diversity.
In a press release issued to the New York Post, Guy Aoki wrote: "Caucasians only make up 30% of the population [of Hawaii], but from watching this film, you'd think they made up 99%.
"This comes in a long line of films - The Descendants, 50 First Dates, Blue Crush, Pearl Harbour - that uses Hawaii for its exotic backdrop but goes out of its way to exclude the very people who live there.
"It's an insult to the diverse culture and fabric of Hawaii."
The war-themed comedy stars Cooper as defence contractor Brian Gilcrest, who is exiled in Hawaii for blowing a major military mission. »
Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, and Madison Gate Records, the in-house record label of Sony Pictures Entertainment, have announced the release of Songs of Aloha (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), the extraordinary musical companion to the upcoming Sony Pictures/Regency Enterprises film, Aloha.
The soundtrack will arrive in stores and at all DSPs on May 26th; Aloha opens in theatres across North America on May 29th.
The 19-track collection gathers Crowe’s always wide-ranging musical selections, spanning such renowned artists as Beck, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac, and The Blue Nile, contemporary singer/songwriters like Kurt Vile, Josh Ritter, and The Tallest Man on Earth, eclectic new acts including Radical Face and Evening Hymns, and acclaimed ambient/electronic musicians Vancouver Sleep Clinic and Jónsi & Alex, »

Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone are both in the spotlight as current Oscar nominees, but come Friday, you can see them fall in love. In Aloha, the latest project written and directed by Cameron Crowe, Cooper plays a disgraced soldier, Brian Gilcrest, who gets a career do-over in Hawaii (not so bad). There, he meets a bubbly fellow officer played by Stone, and amid their flirtation, we see some of Brian's baggage come back to haunt him - namely an ex (Rachel McAdams) and her current man (John Krasinski). Though the movie's description would have you believe it's a dramedy, this has romantic comedy written all over it - and that's Ok when you see who's in this cast. Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray, and Danny McBride also costar in Aloha, which comes out this weekend. »
Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

Best Actor could once again (as it almost always is these days) be an ultra-competitive race full of some of major A-listers. Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Will Smith, Bradley Cooper (going for his fourth nomination in a row), Robert Redford (who has never won for acting, and is coming off that "All Is Lost" snub) Michael Fassbender (with three juicy roles), Jake Gyllenhaal (with two, and coming off not being nominated for "Nightcrawler") and Don Cheadle -- all of whom have never won -- have films coming out this year that scream Oscar (at least on paper) and all of them are due. They might have to compete against someone who is definitely not due, though, as Eddie Redmayne could be in the running again for his role as a transgender artist in Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl." Could Eddie Redmayne be the next Tom Hanks or Spencer Tracy, »

Honolulu — Some Native Hawaiians disapprove of the name of a movie filmed and set in Hawaii, saying that titling it "Aloha" is a disrespectful misappropriation of culture and simplifies a word that's rich with meaning. The Cameron Crowe film starring Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone, opens Friday, with a screening in Honolulu three days before. The concerns are based largely on a trailer that depicts a military-themed love-story that appears devoid of a genuine connection to Hawaiian culture. [readmore:797794] Sony Pictures did not comment on the concerns, pointing The Associated Press to an online behind-

Manuel here to try and help us catch up with the barrage of new film posters (and trailers!) that have dropped these past few days. It’s hard to keep up, what with Cannes, Eurovision, singing along with the Barden Bellas and furiously following Mad Max. Here are six posters you may have missed:
Musically Inclined: A #Tbt double feature
The Sundance hit (review here) gets an appropriately 90s-tinged and sunny poster that features a pretty fun tagline (“It’s hard out there for a geek”) while the film adaptation of the gloriously 80s cartoon gets a Snapchatty poster (telling you everything you need to know about its intended audience) which looks as broody as that underwhelming first trailer.
Tearjerkers: Docs to sob to
Word from Cannes was pretty ecstatic about the former and for those who loved Senna and Amy Winehouse this should come as no surprise; knowing this, »

It might have been more of a post-cinema release cult hit, but Wet Hot American Summer boasted so much comedy acting talent packed into its cast that it was somehow natural that someone would try to bring it back. That someone was Netflix, which commissioned follow-up series First Day Of Camp, which will arrive on the streaming service in July. The first full batch of images from the show is now online. The series, according to co-writer/director David Wain, is “a prequel to the original movie. In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. The show takes place on the first day.”Pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »
We’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the Mad Titan takes centre stage for Avengers: Infinity War, but in the meantime we’ve had to make do with his post-credits scenes in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as a brief appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy.
While we await his next appearance (Thor: Ragnarok?), the folks at Luma Pictures have posted a featurette which delves into the VFX work that went into bringing Thanos to life for Guardians of the Galaxy, and you can check it out here (via ComicBook)…
“Loic Zimmermann our concept designer took the most prevalent features of Josh Brolin that we thought would stand out the most and put them into who the character is underneath,” Luma Pictures VFX supervisor Vincent Cirelli tells FX Guide. “He began blending those elements. We’ve taken Josh’s eyes, »

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were spotted leaving a Ralphs grocery store together in La on Saturday. They kept things cute and casual while heading back to their car, and helped each other unload bags before driving off. It's the first time we've seen Emma and Andrew together since news broke that they had put the brakes on their three-year relationship back in April: at the time, a source close to the couple claimed that their busy schedules were keeping them apart. Emma has been promoting not one but two recent projects, first heading to the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Irrational Man before traveling to London to do press for the romantic comedy Aloha with costar Bradley Cooper. For his part, Andrew was photographed filming the Martin Scorsese film Silence in Taiwan. Despite their distance, rumors of a rekindling between the two began a few weeks ago, »
Well, it certainly hasn’t taken long for Swedish actress Alicia Vikander to get recognized and become one of the most sought after young actresses working today. She broke out in 2012’s “A Royal Affair” next to Mads Mikkelsen and hasn’t looked back since bagging roles immediately in Hollywood projects such as “Anna Karenina" and "The Fifth Estate." And the roles kept coming. She's already appeared in the indie sci-fi hit "Ex Machina" and "Son Of A Gun" this year, and we’ll be seeing her nonstop onscreen in 2015, including upcoming films like "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” remake this summer, "Adam Jones" alongside Bradley Cooper, and Oscar-bait vehicles such as "The Danish Girl" and "Tulip Fever,” which could garner her awards notice. It doesn’t stop there and all the hard work is paying off as more productions are lining up to leverage her talents. Deadline reports out of »

There are very few people on this planet that have amassed the same kind of cult-like worship as Bill Murray. Believed by many to be simply the coolest guy to walk the face of the Earth, Murray has earned a legendary reputation over the years.
Having collaborated with the who’s who of not only the comedy world but also the art film world, Murray boasts an impressive list of contacts. Cameron Crowe now gets to join the long list of directors that have worked with Bill, including Wes Anderson, Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis, and George Clooney, for this month’s Aloha.
Aloha follows a military contractor (Bradley Cooper) who ends up getting caught between an old love (Rachel McAdams) and a new one (Emma Stone). The film features a pretty stacked cast, with John Krasinski, Alec Baldwin, Danny McBride and Jay Baruchel all co-starring. Murray plays an eccentric billionaire »

Reboots have gotten pretty annoying in their excess, but we are not complaining about this one. David Wain and Michael Showalter are offering up a 8 episode prequel to their cult classic 2001 movie "Wet Hot American Summer," and the gang is all here: Janeane Garofalo, Bradley Cooper (hopefully offering up more of the man-on-man action he had in the movie), Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Ian Black all return, while Jon Hamm, Josh Charles, Chris Pine and Kristen Wiig are among the newcomers. We could not be more excited, especially now that those first official images have been released... "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp" arrives on July 31st on Netflix.
