Listen: Songs From Mogwai's Soundtrack To French Zombie TV Show 'Les Revenants'

21 December 2012 7:39 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Scottish outfit Mogwai have been turning it up and blowing your hair back for nearly two decades now, with moody, loud and intense post-rock of the highest order. While their songs have found their way onto countless soundtracks, the band themselves, curiously, haven't done much in the way of scoring. Most notably, they tuned up the abstract documentary "Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait," worked with Clint Mansell on "The Fountain" and also apparently worked on a random 1997 version of "A Picture Of Dorian Gray." That  said, their latest marriage of sound and visual seems perfectly fitting. The band have scored the French television series "Les Revenants." A spinoff of the 2004 horror film, the show centers on the residents of a town who also happen to be zombies. Naturally. Mogwai have lent their trademark touch to the proceedings with an album's worth of tunes that are distinctly theirs and suitably eerie. »

Aronofsky Confirms Clint Mansell Will Be Scoring His New Film 'Noah'

11 December 2012 3:54 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We expected this, but it has been confirmed once again plus it gives us yet another chance to mention these two talented individuals. The Playlist attended a masterclass with Darren Aronofsky at the Marrakech Film Festival and grabbed a few quotes from him talking about the relationship he has with Clint Mansell. Mansell has scored just about every film Aronofsky has made since Pi and Requiem for a Dream. That was only the starting point for Darren to confirm and chat a bit more about the work they're starting on Noah, his new $150-million studio epic starring Russell Crowe as Noah from the biblical Noah's Ark flood story. Noah recently finished shooting and Aronofsky was attending Marrakech as a special guest, speaking at the masterclass as well (full highlights on The Playlist as this is just about Noah). He commented at one point on working with Clint Mansell being like »

Darren Aronofsky Confirms Clint Mansell Will Score Noah

11 December 2012 2:44 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In not exactly shocking news, longtime collaborator Clint Mansell will be composing Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming biblical epic Noah.  Mansell has scored all of Aronofsky’s films to date, so his involvement with Noah was assumed.  Nevertheless, speaking at the Marrakech Film Festival (via The Playlist), Aronofsky confirmed that Mansell will be handling music duties: "We’re about to start [on Noah] and I’m actually getting texts right now and I know it’s from [Mansell], complaining about something. But he’s a genius too and he cares, he puts his heart and soul and his love into everything. And he’s unique - different from everyone else out there working. He’s able to boil down the thematic of a film into a melody, into two or three notes. He captures the whole essence of a film in two or three notes." You can hear the next new Mansell score when »

Darren Aronofsky Confirms Clint Mansell Is Scoring 'Noah,' Discusses Their Working Relationship

11 December 2012 9:04 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Considering composer Clint Mansell has worked with Darren Aronofsky on all of the director's films to date, it's not a big shock that they will be working together once again. But still, it's nice to get some confirmation, and indeed, during a masterclass at the Marrakech Film Festival (you can read all the highlights right here) Aronofsky confirmed that Mansell will be back for his Bible epic "Noah." But perhaps most revealing is Aronofsky's description of their working relationship. "That’s another bad marriage," he said, making a comparison to the equally strong-willed back-and-forths he has with cinematographer Matthew Libatique. "We’re about to start [on ‘Noah’] and I’m actually getting texts right now and I know it’s from [Mansell], complaining about something. But he’s a genius too and he cares, he puts his heart and soul and his love into everything. And he’s unique - different from »

Unsung Gems – ‘Moon’ marvelous and sci-fi at its purest

9 December 2012 1:41 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Moon

Directed by Duncan Jones

Written by Duncan Jones & Nathan Parker

Us, 2009

One area of film that was really neglected during the 00’s (whatever you choose to name them) was one of the founding cornerstones of modern cinema, the unlimited avenue of storytelling possibility that is pure science fiction. Even mediocre attempts at overly mind bending space stories were few and far between, perhaps dictated by disastrous franchise flick Star Trek: Nemesis, colossal Eddie Murphy failure Pluto Nash and George Lucas’ uniformly soulless and awful Star Wars prequels. Indeed, it wasn’t until the final year of the decade that James Cameron returned to the far reaches of the cosmos with the unadventurous Avatar. The same year, a good old fashioned philosophical quagmire with flavors of classic Lem arrived to minimal fanfare but substantial critical acclaim. Duncan Jones’ directorial debut, Moon proved superior to the highest grossing movie of all »

100 Greatest Horror Movies (pt.5): 50-26

26 October 2012 11:24 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the month of October, Editor-in-Chief and resident Horror expert Ricky D, will be posting a list of his favorite Horror films of all time. The list will be posted in six parts. Click here to see every entry.

As with all lists, this is personal and nobody will agree with every choice – and if you do, that would be incredibly disturbing. It was almost impossible for me to rank them in order, but I tried and eventually gave up.

50: Thundercrack!

Directed by Curt McDowell

Written by George Kuchar

1975, USA

Thunderstruck! is by far the most obscure film you will find on this list. It is without a doubt one of the true landmarks of Underground cinema. With a screenplay by veteran underground film maker George Kuchar (story and characters by Mark Ellinger) and directed Curt McDowell (than student of Kuchar),

Thundercrack! is a work of a crazed genius. »

Composer Philip Glass Contributing Original Pieces To Park Chan-Wook’s 'Stoker'

26 October 2012 12:51 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are many reasons to already be stoked for uh, "Stoker," but principally among them: director Park Chan-wook, Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and a score by Clint Mansell, all wrapped up in a promisingly Hitchcock-ian thriller. And now we have another bit of news that may sustain your excitement until the film is released next spring. This afternoon EW debuted the not-so-great song "Becomes the Color" by classical-hip-hop-electronic hybrid violinist and singer (!?!?) Emily Wells from the soundtrack (it's not embeddable, so listen to it here). However, within the story they revealed that the film will feature "original pieces by experimental composer Philip Glass." Awesome. Anyone who is fan of movie soundtracks knows this is something to be particularly thrilled about. The avant garde composer's movie scoring choices tend to be both surprising and usually always memorable (did you know he tuned the otherwise forgotten Aaron »

'Stoker' soundtrack premiere of Emily Wells track 'Becomes the Color' -- Exclusive Listen!

26 October 2012 11:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In South Korean Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s upcoming first English language movie Stoker, out March 1, Nicole Kidman throws eye daggers as the unloving mother of a budding, brown-haired Mia Wasikowska. The family thriller, itself, is awash in blue-tinged darkness.

In keeping with Stoker’s intense vibe, check out this exclusive track, “Becomes the Color,” by classical-hip-hop-electronic hybrid violinist and singer Emily Wells from the film’s soundtrack, out on Milan Records on Feb. 26. “I became the color, I became the daughter and the son, when the feast is over,” sing-raps Wells, who was hand-picked by Park for the film, »

Unsung Gems – ‘The Fountain’ features one of the most unforgettable film climaxes of all time

1 October 2012 5:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Fountain

Directed by Darren Aronofsky

Screenplay by Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel

Us, 2006

A return to the biblical epic for Hollywood has seen eyes drawn once more towards one Darren Aronofsky, coveted Tinselltown Director and creative force behind 2014’s Noah, a star studded and hugely ambitious leviathan of a picture reminiscent of 1950’s free copyright fare. Coming on the back of a winning streak, in the form of the hugely successful character studies The Wrestler and Black Swan, Aronofsky has taken his clamor to set the scale grander, greater even than his most underappreciated work, and labor of love, The Fountain.

His 2006 magnum opus is a film already covered by this critic, who has tirelessly attempted to promote it to a reluctant public and ultimately justify its proud inclusion in his Top 10 Films List. Shunned and dismissed on release, Aronofsky’s follow up to Requiem For a Dream continuously proves »

Blade Runner Trailer Redesigned For The 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition

11 September 2012 1:36 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to the wonder of the world wide web, there has been a dramatic uprise in the number of old films getting 'new' trailers. Fans have taken to their video archives, editing software and the latest piece of dramatic music (from Clint Mansell's "Lux Aeterna" to Zack Hemsey's "Mind Heist" to audiomachine's "Judge and Jury") to approximate what a preview for a classic movie would look like if it was being marketed today. But when there's a big anniversary release of a landmark film, studios themselves sometimes get into the game and Warner Bros. Home Video has given Ridley Scott's Blade Runner trailer an update. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the re-envisioned preview not only showcases the pristine new transfer of the beautifully photographed film (although 480p is a pretty weak way to advertise) but also implements music much more à la mode.

Stanley Kubrick's Symmetry on Display in Impressive One-Point Perspective Video

4 September 2012 3:33 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Vimeo user "kogonada" has gone to pain-staking lengths to point out the one-point shooting perspective Stanley Kubrick used in his films and it's an impressive little video. The clip includes almost all of Kubrick's films as far as I can tell. I don't believe I saw a shot from The Killing, but 2001: A Space Odyssey, Eyes Wide Shut, Paths of Glory, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket, Dr. Strangelove, The Shining and Barry Lyndon are well-represented in a piece that shows just how important symmetry was to the master filmmaker. Beyond the obvious, in terms of the video itself I personally loved the quick cuts between The Shining and Barry Lyndon at the 52-second mark. And, of course, the use of Clint Mansell's score from Requiem for a Dream makes it that much more enjoyable to watch as you're largely paying attention to the visuals. To go with »

Dominic Monaghan Turns Us On -- to Movies, Music & More

28 August 2012 9:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Just because you hail from Middle-earth doesn't mean you're not hip to the more media-centric pleasures in life.

Dominic Monaghan has certainly come a long way since first getting our attention with his memorable turn as Meriadoc 'Merry' Brandybuck in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Since traversing the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, Monaghan has played a drug-addicted rock star lost in limbo (or something) on ABC's hit series, "Lost," tried the whole Marvel mythology on for size with his role as Bolt in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and haunted cemeteries as a graverobber in the cult comedy, "I Sell the Dead."

The former Hobbit, who stars in the science-fiction action film, "The Day," opening Aug. 29, took a break from defending humanity to offer us his personal pop culture picks.

Duncan Jones' stellar debut. Made from barely anything. Looks like a $30 million movie. Sam Rockwell turns in a fantastic performance. »

Thomas Was Alone Developer Interview – Exclusive

1 August 2012 12:38 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

When somebody asks you to suggest a game for them to play that will make them care about the characters, keep them engaged in the story and be the type of game they just cant put down, most of you probably think of games like the Mass Effect trilogy, Final Fantasy games, maybe even something like Spec Ops: The Line. Recently I have found that when asked that question I had a new and unexpected answer in the form of Thomas Was Alone. With nothing more than a series of monochromatic blocks to keep me company, I soon found myself immersed in one of most endearing games I have played in years.

The characters may just be rectangles and squares, but I found myself caring about the journey Thomas and his friends were going on more than any game in recent memory. I was recently able to sit down with »
