2 hours ago | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, April 21: Disney has unveiled the teaser clip of its new original animated series 'Star Wars- Rebels'.

During a panel at WonderCon in Anaheim, California, executive producer of the film Dave Filoni, and Vanessa Marshall, the actress behind the voice of rebel lead character Hera, revealed a short clip of the animated series, the Verge reported.

‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ raids Wes Anderson’s vinyl collection for its rainy day playlist

5 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Composed by Alexandre Desplat

Abkco Records

I have no clue which country, if any, “Zubrowka” is meant to represent in The Grand Budapest Hotel. I can, however, point it out on a map. Er, at least I can point out where it should be. Wes Anderson’s fictional European nation doesn’t exist outside his eighth feature but from its intricate period design to the hotel concierge’s (Ralph Fiennes) well-rounded zest for life, Zubrowka feels real.

Partial credit also goes to Alexandre Desplat, who teams with Anderson for a third time and crafts a rich, ambiguously European score both in sound and in name. Honestly, what could the title of the opening track “s’Rothe-Zauerli” possibly translate to? Apart from providing names for third-rate Star Wars villains, Zubrowkan (?) rings like a cross between Swiss and Spanish, and the track’s barbershop quartet of yodels put a point in the former. »

Star Wars X-Wing and Tie Fighter Engagement Rings

We have featured a lot of Star Wars rings on the site before, including this R2D2 inspired ring by jeweler Paul Michael Bierker of Paul Michael Designs. Well, Paul has been in his studio cranking out more awesome Star Wars fine jewelry, like his X-Wing and Tie Fighter engagement rings. The Tie Fighter ring can be crafted from gold, silver, platinum, or palladium, and features a 1 ct black diamond. I don’t have specs on the X-Wing ring because it hasn’t hit his etsy store yet. He posted it on his Facebook page last week. Hopefully it is available for purchase soon because wedding season is coming, and engagement season follows right on its heels. Check out his shop even if you aren't ready for that level of commitment, he has tons of geeky jewelry anyone would love.

David Lynch Subverted a Franchise to Ensure a Sequel to ‘Dune’ was Impossible

18 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Anyone who knows David Lynch’s work is familiar with his penchant for messing with the audience. One only has to look at how he ended his popular series Twin Peaks, or pretty much any part of the mind-bending Eraserhead, to realize this. Even though in the early 1980s, Lynch had been courted as a potential director for some major films (including Return of the Jedi… wouldn’t you have liked to see the Ewoks in that version?), he had his big studio break with the adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. While it was a commercial and critical failure, Dune also represents Lynch’s subversive filmmaking nature, more than some people even realize. At the time, Hollywood was looking for the next Star Wars, much like how they are furiously searching for the next Hunger Games now with films like Divergent and The Maze Runner. Dune had been in development since the early 1970s, and »

'Sorcerer' Blu-ray Review

18 April 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I interviewed William Friedkin back in 2012 (read part one here and part two here) and asked about the status of Sorcerer back then, knowing of the legal issues it was facing as Paramount and Universal couldn't seem to decide who owned the rights to the film. Friedkin was suing both studios in order to figure that out and hopefully get a remastered version of, what I believe is best called a "cult classic" at this point, the film released. Two years later, it finally arrives courtesy of Warner Home Video in all its tension laden madness. While Friedkin doesn't like the term, Sorcerer is a remake of French director Henri-Georges Clouzot's Wages of Fear (which itself was based on Georges Arnaud's novel), an amazing movie and one I've written about before, including my 2009 review of the Criterion Blu-ray. I can understand Friedkin's aversion to the word "remake" as »
