Trent Reznor: 'I'm not at war with myself as I once was'

23 December 2011 4:24 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Trent Reznor's score for The Social Network won an Oscar. Will The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo bag him another? Dorian Lynskey meets him at his Beverly Hills home

Some time in the late 1990s, the music video director Mark Romanek approached his friend Trent Reznor to compose the score for his feature debut One Hour Photo, a thriller in which lab technician Robin Williams becomes obsessed with a suburban family. It was not the happiest time for Reznor, who was straining to complete the third Nine Inch Nails album and, he says, was about to "slip off a cliff of addiction". While things were still at the demo stage, he received an apologetic call from Romanek saying the studio was pressuring him to use a "real composer".

The physical evidence of how much has changed since those days is 34cm tall, gold-plated and stands on the mantelpiece of Reznor's house in Beverly Hills. »

‘Wrath of the Titans’ Trailer: Gritty Fantasy Violence & Actual Titans

19 December 2011 11:52 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

When Battle: Lost Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman was brought on to helm Warner Bros.’ Wrath of the Titans, a sequel to the 2010 Clash of the Titans remake, he expressed a desire to fashion the mythological sequel as more of a truly grounded, down n’ dirty swords & sandals epic (in the vein of filmmaker Ridley Scott’s Gladiator).

Today, we have some official posters/banners and a teaser trailer for Wrath of the Titans – and while they both feature CGI creatures and bombastic action aplenty, there’s definitely a much more textural and unpolished look to this action-packed first look at the film (which even includes actual Titans).

Here is the official lowdown on the Wrath of the Titans, which takes place a decade after the events of Clash:

Chiefs Beat Undefeated Packers By Watching The Movie Gladiator

19 December 2011 11:40 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

The Kansas City Chiefs improbably beat the Green Bay Packers yesterday to ruin Green Bay’s undefeated season and snap their 19-game winning streak dating back to last season (and including the Super Bowl). So how did Romeo Crennell – in his first game as Chiefs head coach and with his team coming in as 11-point underdogs – motivate his team to victory? Easy! He quoted the movie Gladiator: Crennel used The Gladiator [sic] to help get his team ready for this game. He’d seen it last weekend in the hotel, before the Chiefs played the Jets, and he took some Russell Crowe into the Saturday night team meeting with him. “I told the team that, like the gladiator, we were going to play a great team in Green Bay, and no matter what comes out of these gates, we’ve got to stay together,” Crennel said. “We did that. I told them after the game, »

Sherlock Holmes Sequel Exemplifies Eco-Friendly Filmmaking

15 December 2011 6:24 PM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

From Mother Nature Network's Gerri Miller:

When it comes to green production, "Warner Bros. is extremely conscious about that and works with the physical production people to try and do as much as possible, making sure that everything that can be recycled is," says Susan Downey, producer of "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," which stars her husband, Robert Downey Jr. and opens Dec. 16. "Most movies are made digitally," adds producer Joel Silver, pointing out that filmmaking has become a cleaner, less wasteful business. Co-producer Lauren Meek shares some specifics.

"As part of the Warner Bros. Green Initiative, Greenshoot were brought in to consult and assist the production in lowering the carbon footprint of 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' and to help implement more sustainable production practices in conjunction with and to complement the Green initiatives already set out by Warner Bros.

Escapism, invasion, sequels and resentment: the cinema trends of 2011

13 December 2011 7:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What do this year’s most successful Hollywood films say about our changing tastes, and how do they compare to previous years? Ryan finds out…

At first glance, a look at this year’s ten highest grossing movies reveals nothing more than the usual diet of sequels and effects-filled blockbusters. The final Harry Potter movie made more than $1.3bn. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides made more than $1bn, in spite of middling reviews. The rest of the year’s hits were largely dominated by computer-animated movies for the family crowd: Kung Fu Panda 2, The Smurfs, Cars 2 and Rio all made the top ten.

Look a little more closely, though, and you’ll see that this year’s hit films reveal numerous common themes, and tell us a great deal about movie-going appetites and contemporary fears…

Angelina Jolie and Director Luc Besson To Team Up for Untitled Action Thriller

12 December 2011 2:53 PM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Angelina Jolie may have found herself in legal trouble for her upcoming directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey, but there are still no shortage of roles for the Academy Award–winning actress. Recently attached to star in title role of the biopic Gertrude Bell — which could be directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator) — Jolie is also set to appear in a sequel to last year's Salt. But all of those projects will have to take a back seat to Jolie's next project: an untitled thriller that will see Jolie work with director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, The Professional).

Described as a "dramatic thriller with action," THR reports that Universal Pictures has picked up the distribution rights to the movie, and has set production to begin in Paris next April. Besson will produce and also wrote the untitled movie, which the studio is reportedly claiming »

Ralph Fiennes Gets Shakespearean With 3 New Banners For 'Coriolanus'

12 December 2011 7:42 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In case you missed the first couple of memos, this isn't exactly your grandmother's Shakespeare. Three new character banners have been unveiled by The Weinstein Company for Ralph Fiennes' directorial debut, a reimagining of William Shakespeare's "Coriolanus" which combines modern warfare (aided by the work of "The Hurt Locker" and "Green Zone" cinematographer Barry Ackroyd) and classic Shakespearean language, courtesy of a script by John Logan ("Gladiator"). As well as helming, Fiennes also plays the titular character in a strong cast that includes Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain, Gerard Butler, Brian Cox and James Nesbitt. Word had originally pegged the film as a potential Oscar wildcard, especially the performance of Redgrave as Coriolanus' mother Volumnia, though that seems a bit far off now. Our own review described the flick as a "an assured film from an actor who nonetheless clearly demonstrates »

Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer Consulting For Oscar

9 December 2011 12:03 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

We thought it seemed slightly conspicuous that world-renowned film composer Hans Zimmer ("The Dark Knight," "Gladiator") would just take his name out of the running for Oscar consideration this year, as he did a couple weeks back. Don't all Hollywood peeps love getting awards?

Now his reasoning seems clearer as its come to light that Zimmer will actually be the music consultant for this year's Academy Awards ceremony. So that's what he meant when he said, "I just want to observe for a year."

Entertainment Weekly dropped the news that the German composer, whose music put a spring in the steps of Batman, Captain Jack Sparrow and Simba, will be joined by multiple Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams in getting the tunes up to snuff for the most widely viewed telecast in the known universe.

Williams is one-half of the production duo known as The Neptunes and frontman for his rock-infused band N. »
