There are many factors that grab a person’s interest in seeing a film – the actors, the director, the material that inspired the film, the film’s trailer, but with more and more popular artists and bands trying their had at composing, sometimes hearing new music from these artists can be just as big of a draw. Artists like Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, and Trent Reznor have taken to the sound stage to create music for films such as Tron: Legacy, Hanna, and The Social Network (with Reznor and Atticus Ross even winning an Oscar for their efforts), but what if these recognizable artists were considered a distraction rather than an enhancement to the films they are featured in? Out of the Furnace was rumored to have tapped Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam fame to create new music for the film – a solid choice considering the success Vedder had creating the music for Into the Wild.

British model Liberty Ross learned that her husband of 10 years, director Rupert Sanders, was cheating on her with his Snow White and the Huntsman star, Kristen Stewart, only 20 hours before paparazzi photos of Sanders and Stewart hugging and kissing were published in a magazine. "It was horrible," Ross tells Vanity Fair. "It was really the worst, really the worst." Stepping in to protect his sister was Ross's brother, Atticus Ross, the Oscar-winning composer of The Social Network. "I'm texting people because I know this is going to be huge," he tells the magazine. "It was about not destroying [Liberty]. I don't »

British model/actress Liberty Ross, 35, is opening up for the very first time about one of the biggest celeb scandals of 2012 -- her husband director Rupert Sanders' affair with Kristen Stewart, who was dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson at the time. Both Sanders, 42, and Stewart, 23, issued public apologies last July shortly after Us Weekly published paparazzi photographs of the two kissing.
"I have no words to describe what we went through," Ross tells Vanity Fair in a new interview. " ... It was horrible. It was really the worst, really the worst."

Ross says that Sanders told her about the affair with Stewart 20 hours before the paparazzi photos appeared in Us Weekly, quickly going viral. A friend of her brother Atticus Ross -- an Academy Award–winning composer and frequent Trent Reznor collaborator -- offered her and her two children her home up the coast as a hideout from the paparazzi, where she quickly »
Nine Inch Nails have had plenty of time and space to regroup. New "Hesitation Marks" is the industrial rockers' first in five years, and first since taking time off from touring in as many moons. It's a fresh lineup and, in the time in-between, Trent Reznor has won and Oscar, launched How To Destroy Angels with his wife and longtime collaborator Atticus Ross and, apparently, made amends with a major labels in time to launch a proper campaign to push a significant and solid radio single. The result from that pause is a mellower Reznor with big standalone songs, rare rays »
As a passionate fan of Trent Reznor's music for nearly a quarter-century, I knew this review would be quite an undertaking, but now the time has come to step up and swing. My initial thrill came early this year, when Nine Inch Nails' founder announced that his legendary band would not only be returning to the stage in 2013 after a four-year hiatus (and five years away from the studio), but had already been at work on the new album Hesitation Marks, so the excitement and anticipation was understandably high. The title, which refers to the tenuous flesh wounds made by someone contemplating suicide, suggested we were about to visit another very dark corner of Reznor's psyche – an idea reinforced by the return of mixed media artist Russell Mills, who created the cover for the band's darkest, most emotionally devastating album The Downward Spiral. But then came that inevitable »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
It’s been a little over five years since the last release by Nine Inch Nails, but Hesitation Marks is well worth the wait. Now married, a father of two, and an Academy Award winning composer, Trent Reznor returns with not only a new album, but a new outlook on life. In between the release of 2008′s The Slip and now, Reznor found himself composing the score for David Fincher’s film The Social Network. During that time, he had announced that Nin was through touring and that he was stepping away from the music scene for a while. After scoring Tsn, he formed the band How To Destroy Angels with his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and collaborator Atticus Ross. The Htda project had Mariqueen at the forefront both on the album and via live shows and had a distinct sound that kept it separate from Nin. »

Nine Inch Nails has revealed the track listing for “Hesitation Marks,” out Sept. 3. In addition to first single, “Came Back Haunted,” the rest of the titles hint at the sense of restless discontent (to put it mildly) the group is known for, including “The Eater of Dreams,” “Disappointed,” “All Time Low,” “Various Methods of Escape,” and “Black Noise.” Nine Inch Nails head Trent Reznor produced the album with his composing partner Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder. Among the guests are Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, bassist Pino Palladino, and guitarist Adrian Belew, who dropped out of the band, according to Rolling »
One of the staples of the Los Angeles Film Festival is the festival’s Coffee Talk series which bring together top names in the industry to discuss their craft and offer inside insights on what it is like to be a working director, screenwriter, actor, or composer. This year’s “Coffee Talks: Composers” panel featured The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo composer, Atticus Ross, John Dies at the End and Iron Man 3 composer, Brian Tyler, and Zombieland and End of Watch composer, David Sardy. It was an interesting panel with Tyler and Sardy sharing the experience of composing for big budget films while Ross had avoided some of those studio pressures to pave his own way through the industry. All three have different backgrounds with Ross coming from a band member’s perspective, Sardy a music producer’s perspective, and Tyler from an indie film into big blockbuster perspective, making »

Back in February, Nine Inch Nails founder Trent Reznor revealed that his legendary band was reuniting for a tour this summer... but what he didn't tell us was that the band was already in the studio working on their next album at the time. Trent has finally confessed that the new record is not only a done deal, but it's actually slated for release this year. “I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately,” Reznor posted at the band's official site. “For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross [Trent's long-time collaborator and fellow Golden Globe-winning composer] and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great.” We've known that new Nin material was in the works – the first since the band completed their “Wave Goodbye” tour in 2009 – and that the band would hit the stage again. »

"I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately. For the last year I've been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly f***ing great," writes Reznor on the band's Tumblr.
"This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, Htda and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!"
The release date and title for the new album have not yet been revealed, »

For the last year I've been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great." It'll be out later this year, while Nine Inch Nails is touring. Surprise! (Sort of.) »
Nine Inch Nails have finished recording their eighth studio album and signed with Columbia Records to release the new record later this year. The news comes as a surprise as Trent Reznor had only hinted at the potential for new material but it appears he's been working on it already with bandmates Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder. "I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately. For the last year I've been secretly working nonstop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly f***ing great.

Nine Inch Nails have signed with Columbia Records for the release of a new Nin album later this year. While Nin founder Trent Reznor has often championed a D-i-y aesthetic, the move isn’t that surprising given that his trio, How To Destroy Angels, which also includes his composing partner Atticus Ross and his wife Mariqueen Maandig, is on Columbia. In a press release, Reznor admitted, “I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to to lately... for the last year, I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails »
Surprise! Nine Inch Nails have a new album that they're putting out on Columbia later this year.
Trent Reznor admitted that he hasn't exactly been upfront about Nin's plans. "I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately," he said in a press release sent out by the label. "For the last year I've been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly f--king great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, How to Destroy Angels and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!"

Much has been made of Jay-z’s involvement with Baz Lurhmann’s epic adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The music mogul has never before lent his name or his talents to a project in this way before (we’re not counting his “inspired by” American Gangster album). Despite the hype, this soundtrack collaboration is fundamentally safe (if seemingly off to a fast start on the charts.). Not only is The Great Gatsby a tent-pole blockbuster with an above-the-title director and major A-list talent, it’s a grandiose celebration of New York jazz age glamour and excess — which in some ways, »

David Fincher, an amazingly intuitive director, hired Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to score the masterpiece that is The Social Network, and in doing so created a film that used music to compliment sound in a way that very few movies do nowadays. The union of music and sound in this movie is hauntingly dark and psychoanalytical, acting like the brainwaves channeling throughout the film, transporting us, the viewers, into the minds of secretly disturbed individuals stuck on a social trip through heaven and hell. The effects of sound and music is an aspect of film so integrated into our minds and our society that it is easy for us as a culture raised on movies to take them for granted. When The Social Network was first released one of the most notable elements of the film was its score, which revealed the rawness and the audacity of its approach »

Bill Pohlad‘s Love & Mercy is looking to start filming this summer, and it looks like they’ve got the biggest pieces of the puzzle all set. According to The Wrap, John Cusack is in talks to join the production, playing Beach Boy Brian Wilson in his mid-life years while Paul Dano plays the younger version of the iconic musician. With a script from Oren Moverman (The Messenger), the movie seeks to chronicle Wilson’s life from his 1960s success, through his public breakdown to his modern reemergence. And, really, he makes for a fascinating subject with a hell of a soundtrack on his hip, but the names behind Love & Mercy build up a lot of excitement. Pohlad was a producer on Into the Wild, The Tree of Life and The Runaways; Moverman has shown incredible emotional nuance in his scripts; Atticus Ross (The Social Network) is scoring the film; John Wells is also producing; and Wilson »
