Director Matt Reeves and composer Michael Giacchino have both confirmed on their Twitter accounts that they will be reteaming for next summer's highly anticipated sequel Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, which recently began production. The two previously worked together on 2010's Let Me In; Giacchino also worked on Cloverfield but was uncredited. Below are the two's tweets confirming the news. Patrick Doyle scored 2011's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. Are you disappointed by the decision to replace him, or is Giacchino a better choice?

Marvel officials have confirmed the first visuals from Thor: The Dark World will be released next week, on Tuesday, April 23rd, ready to run theatrically with the international release of Iron Man 3. Holding us over until then, Disney recently released the first teaser poster and it reveals what’s been a mystery for quite some time: who will score the Alan Taylor-directed sequel? The composer of the original 2011 Thor film, Patrick Doyle, was said to be in early talks to return, but it appears that veteran Carter Burwell has been tapped to score the film, which is the second “Phase Two” expansion of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe! Beyond the first Twilight film and two sequels, Carter Burwell has composed the scores for True Grit, Fargo, Where the Wild Things Are, and No Country for Old Men. Thor: The Dark World would be Burwell’s first superhero flick, but what do you think? »

Mumford & Sons' Babel just won the Grammy for Album of the Year, and the band is already planning album Number Three, setting up a backstage practice room at every gig of their winter arena tour to work out musical ideas. "We're getting into the habit of just sort of working on stuff," says keyboardist Ben Lovett.
Q&A: Mumford & Sons’ Ted Dwane on the Making of ‘Babel’
"I do feel like we're ready to make the departure," adds Lovett. "There's definitely cohesion between the two albums [2010's Sigh No More and Babel]. Now that we've done that, we're not desperate to walk away from that sound, but we're willing to explore what else we could do. These two albums are like brothers. Do something that's a cousin."

I really don't put much stock in the International Animated Film Society's 2013 Annie Awards, which is why I didn't rush to report on their results on Saturday. One year Disney and Pixar boycott the event, feeling there was an unfair advantage paid to larger contributing sponsors, DreamWorks being the primary example. So with such a nasty stench over the event what good does it do to pay it much mind? That said, I'll be brief in mentioning Wreck-It Ralph topped Saturday night's winners with five awards, including Best Animated Picture. The awards have something like a 75% streak when it comes to helping predict the eventual Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature and as the days have gone on, it's looking more and more like Ralph will be this year's winner (see my predictions here). Pixar's Brave, Laika's ParaNorman and DreamWorks' Rise of the Guardians each took home two awards in lesser, »

Odd List Ivan Radford Jan 3, 2013
As 2012 recedes into history, Ivan counts down his pick of the year's finest movie soundtracks...
While Den of Geek writers were busy voting for the top film of the year, I’ve been rifling through my collection of albums from the last 12 months to work out which film soundtrack was the best. The conclusion? It’s been one heck of a year. (Please excuse the long list of Honourable Mentions at the end…)
These are the best movie soundtracks of 2012. Probably.
A quick rewatch of the trailer to Paul Thomas Anderson’s film reminds you of the power of Jonny Greenwood’s music. The Master is surpassed by its haunting score, which nails the psychological state of Joaquin Phoenix’s Able-Bodied Seamen, increasingly dominated by His Master’s Voice. It may not be as lyrical as Greenwood’s Norwegian Wood soundtrack, »
