Watch Patti Smith Share Rock Wisdom to Rooney Mara in 'Song to Song' Clip
Patti Smith offers Rooney Mara advice on life, music and love in a new clip from Terrence Malick's upcoming movie Song to Song. The film takes place against the backdrop of the Austin music scene and stars Mara, Michael Fasssbender, Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman alongside numerous musicians.

Mara and Gosling play a pair of indie rockers who fall in love, though their working and romantic relationship is complicated by a music mogul (Fassbender) and a waitress (Portman). In the new clip, a distraught and uncertain Mara seeks out Smith,

Terrence Malick’s Song to Song gets two new clips, Christian Bale cut from film

In just a few hours, Terrence Malick’s latest directorial effort, Song to Song, will have its world premiere at the South by Southwest Festival; while festival attendees will get to see the film a week before general audiences, two clips have been released for the masses to enjoy. The first clip (via TrailerTown) centers around the partnership between Ryan Gosling’s Bv and Michael Fassbender’s Cook, while the latter clip (via One Big Soul) shows Bv romantically pursuing Rooney Mara’s Faye. Check out both below…

Neither clip is short on “Malick-isms,” between the voiceovers from several characters’ perspectives, floating camera and overall quiet and meditative tone. Song to Song certainly won’t be for everyone, as exactly zero of Malick’s movies are, but it looks like it should please his fans.

Malick’s three previous films, To the Wonder, Knights of Cups and Voyage of Time,

Billed as a "modern love story," the two couples will "chase success through a rock and roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.

Iron & Wine Picks the Best Iron & Wine Songs

Iron & Wine Picks the Best Iron & Wine Songs
Both Iron and Wine are one guy, Sam Beam, who has been making music under the moniker since 2002, when he released his first album, The Creek Drank the Cradle. Since then, there's no way you haven't heard Beam's music playing softly in cafés or, more recently, in the series finale of Parenthood (his cover of "Forever Young" was appropriately tear-worthy). To celebrate the release of Archive Series Vol. 1, a collection of unreleased songs written during the Creek Drank the Cradle era, we asked Beam to name a few of his favorite Iron & Wine songs. Very humbly, he obliged: The Creek Drank the Cradle (2002): "Bird Stealing Bread" I put that one on the list because, in my memory, as far as all those batches of songs, it seemed like it just popped out of the environment [where] I was living — Miami, maybe two blocks from the beach, writing

Paramount's Traditional 'Gwtw' Summer Closer Adds a Special Guest

It is always a bittersweet occassion when the Paramount Theatre's Summer Classic Film Series comes to a close, if anything because it symbolizes that summer is over in Austin. Nonetheless, the theatre is closing the series properly with its traditional screening of the cinematic epic Gone With The Wind.  

These past few months have brought in film critics and lovers alike, with presentations from Leonard Maltin (who kicked off the first Friday night screening of the series) and musical group Iron and Wine. So it should come as no surprise that the series will close with the screening, an in-depth discussion of the film, and a Q&A with Turner Classic Movies host/film historian Robert Osborne.  Osborne has been the primetime host and anchor of TCM since it made its on-air debut in 1994. He is the official biographer of "Oscar" (which discusses the history of the Academy Awards), and

Iron And Wine announces new record, releases first single

Iron And Wine’s latest record, Ghost On Ghost, will be released April 16 on Nonesuch. The LP, Sam Beam’s second for the label, is apparently the singer’s attempt to release the “anxious tension” he’d built up recording his last few records, including 2011’s Kiss Each Other Clean. Recorded with longtime producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Califone, Fruit Bats), Ghost On Ghost features album art by photographer Barbara Crane and instrumental help from members of Tin Hat Trio, Sex Mob, Jazz Passengers, and Antony And The Johnsons. The jazzy first single from the record, “Lovers’ Revolution ...

Movies This Week: July 13 - 19, 2012

The crowds have amassed in San Diego for the largest annual gathering of comic and film fans known as Comic-Con. I envy our pals who make the trek where once-in-a-lifetime magic happens, including musical performances from The Guild cast members or the appearance of the filmmakers and the entire cast of Firefly and Serenity -- more precisely, Ut graduate Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog), Joss Whedon, and Nathan Fillion. Reports have already come out of San Diego of Whedon and Day dancing with fans.

Fellow fans can experience Comic-Con 2012 through the coverage from Spill.com and Film School Rejects. I'm loving the weekly videos from Ain't It Cool News Harry Knowles's basement, and this week Harry shares his Comic-Com film panel preview.

Meanwhile in Austin, I'm really looking forward to a guilty pleasure of Blue Starlite's double feature on Saturday at 9 pm, of my all-time favorite Richard Linklater movie,

Movies Worth Listening To: 10 Great Soundtracks

There’s a particular joy that comes from an excellent soundtrack accompanying an excellent movie. When the music matches the moment, from The Full Monty to Pulp Fiction to Cool Runnings, we experience a moment of aesthetic contentment.

But what about when the soundtrack is infinitely superior to the film? Buying soundtracks is often a great musical choice, because you get songs from a variety of artists – but what if the film they accompany was mediocre? Or worse still, one you’d never consider (or admit to) watching in a million years?

Here are a few that deserve to be placed in brown paper covers, or filed in itunes under a different name:

The ok-movie-Kickass soundtracks:

10 – About a Boy is a feelgood romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant (how very surprising, I hear you gasp), with a lovely script. It’s one of those films you enjoy, but can’t really remember.

Bella and Edward's 'Twilight' Wedding By the Numbers

  • NextMovie
We're just going to say it — recreating the wedding in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" is easier said than done.

For starters, not every bride and groom are as gorgeous (and skinny) as Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Secondly, and more importantly, most people don't have the Cullens' endless cash flow accumulated over centuries and centuries. Sadly, the average "Twilight" fan hasn't had that many years to save for a wedding.

Still, we were curious what it would take, so we asked wedding planner Rebecca Joyce from Just About Married to help us break down the "Breaking Dawn" nuptials by the number and approximate the Cullens' budget (assuming they had 100 guests).

Bella's Garb

The Dress: Custom Carolina Herrera gowns start at $25,000. (Before you totally hyperventilate with sticker shock, remember that you can get the official replica by Alfred Angelo for only $799).

The Veil: $300

‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ Official Soundtrack Track Listing (Ost)

‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ Official Soundtrack Track Listing (Ost)
It’s here, it’s here! The official soundtrack listing (Ost) for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 has been revealed. We already knew about Bruno Mars, and his song ‘It Will Rain’ and now we have a whole list to go with it. Included on that list is an apparently new form of ‘Flightless Bird, American Mouth’ by Iron and Wine, which you just might remember from that famous prom scene in Twilight. Check it all out after the jump:

01 End Tapes – By The Joy Formidable

02 Love Will Take You – By Angus & Julia Stone

03 It Will Rain – By Bruno Mars

04 Turning Page – By Sleeping At Last

02 Love Will Take You – By Angus & Julia Stone

03 It Will Rain – By Bruno Mars

17 Turning Page (Instrumental) – By Sleeping At Last

18 Eclipse (All Yours) [Bonus Track] – By Kevin Teasley

19 It Will Rain – By Bruno Mars [Edit]

While I’m thrilled they’re throwing in a reference to the original Twilight with ‘Flightless Bird’, I have to admit I’m pretty bitterly disappointed that there’s no Muse. I definitely realize that they could still be included in Breaking Dawn – Part 2, but that’s really not helping me right now. I mean really? Breaking Dawn is dedicated to Muse. But I’ve never understood the obsession to have completely new music either, I’d take old Muse any day! I think the baseball scene in Twilight is still one of the most popular scenes in the entire Saga to this day, and Muse’s ‘Supermassive Black Hole’ was definitely not written for the movie. Ah well, I’ll wait to fully judge when I actually hear it, because it does still contain some awesome bands like The Joy Formidable.

Currently you can pre-order the soundtrack on Amazon here.

What do you think of the Ost for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1?

What Did Christian Bale and Terrence Malick Shoot in Austin This Weekend?

What Did Christian Bale and Terrence Malick Shoot in Austin This Weekend?
Not long ago, we heard that Terrence Malick has a new film [1] brewing with Christian Bale. Almost nothing else was known about the project -- no real story, no timeline, no other cast details. Over the weekend, we got what seems to be the best possible confirmation of this project as Malick and Bale were spotted all over the Austin City Limits music fest. A camera crew was following the two and actress Haley Bennett, recently said [2] to be the frontrunner for the female lead. Malick was also photographed with camera in hand. We still don't know any real details of the story, or even if this was essentially a test shoot. Given that Bale is still shooting The Dark Knight Rises we didn't expect to learn anything new about this for a while, so this collection of images is an unexpected surprise. Photos and video of the director are exceedingly rare,

Watch: Video of Terrence Malick Directing Christian Bale at Austin City Limits

  • The Film Stage
For someone who rarely has a photo of him taken, this weekend has been free-for-all of sorts for director Terrence Malick. We gathered a detailed account of what is going down at Austin City Limits music festival this weekend, including many photos. But now we have video of the reclusive director, most recently behind The Tree of Life, with his camera crew following Christian Bale in a busy crowd for their upcoming film.

There are no details about the plot, but another recent photo below confirms the casting of Haley Bennet. His “darker” biopic take on the rock ‘n’ roll and country star Jerry Lee Lewis is the only one of his previously unproduced projects this could be, but there is no information yet. Check out the Daily Distraction video (via Johnny Garcia) below on this Sunday afternoon, which finds the director in what looks to be a happy mood,

Sound on Sight Radio #278: Terrence Malick / The Tree of Life, pt. 2

It’s been a couple of weeks since we first reviewed director Terrence Malick’s latest, the Palme d’Or-winning The Tree of Life, and since then it has rolled out to most decent cities, bringing with it a lively discussion about the film’s merits. We thought it would be fun to discuss it again, this time with the help of returning guest Olivier Cruerer. While we’re at it, we also get to talking about Malick’s two other post-comeback films, 1999′s The Thin Red Line and 2005′s The New World.
