Hard to believe: John Williams is not scoring Steven Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies'

18 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the first time in almost 30 years a Steven Spielberg film will not be scored by John Williams.  That was the sad news DreamWorks Studios tried to avoid making headlines with this morning with the announcement that Thomas Newman would compose the music for Spielberg's upcoming thriller "Bridge of Spies." According to a release from the studio through distributor Walt Disney Pictures, Williams work schedule "was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected."   The 83-year-old composer has enjoyed a remarkable career winning five Academy Awards including three Oscars for Spielberg films "E.T.," "Schindler's List" and "Jaws."  The duo most recently collaborated on 2013's "Lincoln" for which Williams also earned an Original Score nomination. Williams' last theatrical work was 2013's "The Book Thief" which was his 49th nomination. He has also won a remarkable 22 Grammy Awards. Williams is still expected to »

Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies' Loses Composer John Williams

18 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

DreamWorks Pictures'/Fox 2000 Pictures' upcoming dramatic thriller directed by three-time Academy Award&#174-winning director Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List) and starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia), has been, as previously announced, titled Bridge of Spies. In addition, 12-time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Saving Mr. Banks) has been signed to score the film, as John Williams' schedule was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected.

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

New Picture from Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies', Newman Replaces Williams on Score

18 March 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Dreamworks has announced today that Thomas Newman (Road to Perdition) has replaced John Williams (Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens) as composer for Steven Spielberg's upcoming movie, Bridge of Spies. As much as it would seem like Williams had to cancel due to his work on the new Star Wars film, the announcement says Williams had to step down due to a minor health issue, which has since been corrected. Williams will, however, return to work with Spielberg on his next film, the Roald Dahl adaptation, The Bfg. Meanwhile, the studio sent over the above new picture of Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies where he stars as James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. The film is set »

Run All Night Review

12 March 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Juame Collet-Serra

Cast: Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris

Running Time: 115 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: Ageing hit-man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson) is forced to take on his brutal former boss Shawn Maguire (Harris) to protext his estranged son Mike (Kinnaman) and his family following the death of Shawn’s son Danny (Holbrook).

It is official – Liam Neeson has become an entire separate genre of film… and not in a good way. Coming to cinemas this Friday, Run All Night is the mid-March Neeson flick that we’ve all been waiting for. This time around? A bumbling, old-timey hit-man turned ageing alcoholic with a penchant for ominous phone-calls and erratic car chases. Sound familiar? Oh wait, that’s every Liam Neeson film. Now, if you’re worried about spoilers, be comforted in the knowledge that this flick is just as formulaic as the rest of Neeson’s filmography, just with slightly better camera work, »

Film Review: ‘Run All Night’

10 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Someday the mobsters, petty thugs and crooked cops of the world will finally get it through their thick skulls that you should never, ever mess with Liam Neeson’s family — not that audiences have reason to complain in the meantime, so long as they keep getting action pictures as straightforward and robustly satisfying as “Run All Night.” In his third and arguably most effective partnership with director Jaume Collet-Serra (after “Unknown” and “Non-Stop”), the 62-year-old Neeson puts his world-weary killer instincts to good use as an aging Brooklyn hit man trying to protect his estranged son — a twist that pushes this tense, elegantly assembled chase thriller into full-on male-weepie territory, so heavy with sins-of-the-fathers anguish that it almost plays out like a latter-day “Road to Perdition.” Yet Collet-Serra keeps things moving so nimbly that the emotions never turn leaden, suggesting that this Warner Bros. programmer could display some much-needed commercial »

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »

Turning the lens on Oscar nominees for Best Cinematography

19 February 2015 7:23 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Cinematography is one of the most closely watched technical categories at the Oscars, due largely to the fact that it’s often so difficult to predict. Indeed, since 1986, when the American Society of Cinematographers first started handing out prizes, only 11 of its winners went on to triumph at the Oscars: -Break- 1990: Dean Semler, “Dances with Wolves” 1995: John Toll, “Braveheart” 1996: John Seale, “The English Patient” 1997: Russell Carpenter, “Titanic” 1999: Conrad L. Hall, “American Beauty” 2002: Conrad L. Hall, “Road to Perdition” 2005: Dion Beebe, “Memoirs of a Geisha” 2007: Robert Elswit, “There Will Be Blood” 2008: Anthony Dod Mantle, “Slumdog Millionaire” 2010: Wally Pfister, “Inception” 2013: Emmanuel Lubeszki, “Gravity” Updated: Experts' Oscars predictions in 24 categories This year, th...' »

Cas Sound Mixing Award Winners Do Fairly Well at the Oscars

16 February 2015 8:17 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Birdman took home the Cinema Audio Society Award for sound mixing in a live action film on Saturday. The best picture-nominated film is also nominated for both of the sound Oscars (sound mixing and sound editing). The film lost the BAFTA Award for best sound to Whiplash, which is also nominated for both of the Oscars for sound.

Since the Cas Awards began in 1994, all 21 of the live action features that won for sound mixing have also been nominated for the sound mixing Oscar, and 12 have won. In contrast, four of the 14 best sound BAFTA winners — since the BAFTAs have taken place before the Oscars — didn’t win an Oscar for their sound. Of the 10 that did win, five won both of the Oscars for sound, four won the Oscar for sound mixing and one took home the Oscar for sound editing.

John Ostrander: Music To Write Comics By

8 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I love movie and television soundtracks. I’ll often use a given soundtrack while I work, letting it fuel my writing. I can’t listen to music with lyrics in them; that interferes with my process. I’ll get themes, characters, even scenes or whole plots from the music. Soundtrack music is in service of the story that the film is trying to tell; it’s a part of the narrative, heightening the emotion that’s being invoked.

I have my own particular favorites. The composers usually have a large body of work but certain key works resonate within me – Jerry Goldsmith’s Chinatown and Patton, James Horner with Field of Dreams, Shaun Davey’s Waking Ned Devine, Elmer Bernstein’s To Kill A Mockingbird (has there ever been a more beautiful and evocative theme?) and, of course, The Magnificent Seven.

I’ve also been very fond of Alan Silvestri »

The 10 Most Anticipated Movie Scores of 2015

7 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film scores are pretty ephemeral to a large chunk of the movie-going populace, where music isn’t noticeable unless a triumphant fanfare or sweeping ballad draws enough attention to itself. So if scoring is already the film industry’s unappreciated middle child, how silly is a list about ones that haven’t been released yet? Very silly. Oftentimes, composers don’t even sign with a project until well into production, so speculating on the best film music of 2015, like any year, forces one to work with what’s known. Sound on Sight will offer more in-depth analysis on the most buzzed about music as the year rolls on but for now, here are the ten movie scores I’m most excited to hear in 2015.

10. The WalkAlan Silvestri

Alan Silvestri’s last great score was for a TV show, and his last great film score was for one of the more forgettable Marvel entries. »

Cinematographers pick the best-shot films of all time

4 February 2015 12:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stumbling across that list of best-edited films yesterday had me assuming that there might be other nuggets like that out there, and sure enough, there is American Cinematographer's poll of the American Society of Cinematographers membership for the best-shot films ever, which I do recall hearing about at the time. But they did things a little differently. Basically, in 1998, cinematographers were asked for their top picks in two eras: films from 1894-1949 (or the dawn of cinema through the classic era), and then 1950-1997, for a top 50 in each case. Then they followed up 10 years later with another poll focused on the films between 1998 and 2008. Unlike the editors' list, though, ties run absolutely rampant here and allow for way more than 50 films in each era to be cited. I'd love to see what these lists would look like combined, however. I imagine "Citizen Kane," which was on top of the 1894-1949 list, »

How former lumberjack Dennis Gassner conjured a forest for 'Into the Woods'

19 January 2015 11:38 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the past three decades, Dennis Gassner has had a hand in creating many of Hollywood's most memorable on-screen worlds, from classic period ("Bugsy") to surreal contemporary ("The Truman Show") to other-wordly fantasy ("The Golden Compass"). This year, he's back at it again with "Into the Woods," his first foray into the classic movie musical. His work on the film earned an Oscar nomination last week, his fifth to date after "Barton Fink," "Bugsy" (for which he won), "Road to Perdition" and "The Golden Compass." Currently in Austria working on the "Skyfall" follow-up, "Spectre," Gassner recently spoke to HitFix about crafting the eponymous forest environment for the Stephen Sondheim adaptation, among other elements. The design began during a Skype chat between Gassner and director Rob Marshall that the production designer attempts to recreate. On his direction, I go to Google and type "Angel Oak." My reaction: "Wow," which was exactly »

Bond 24: 10 Skyfall Flaws That Spectre Should Improve Upon

6 January 2015 8:40 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Eon Productions

There’s no use pretending that Skyfall is anything other than one of the best and most relentlessly entertaining James Bond movies ever made. The 23rd 007 entry into this never-ending canon of films was expertly helmed by of Sam Mendes – the man responsible for cinematic gems such as American Beauty and Road To Perdition – and as a result went on to become the highest-grossing film in the UK ever. Brilliantly acted, beautifully shot and crammed with some of cinema’s most exciting set-pieces, such achievements aren’t to be scoffed at. That said, Skyfall wasn’t perfect.

In the wake of Skyfall’s release, Bond fans were left waiting with baited breathe as Eon Productions pondered over where to take the franchise next. The general consensus seemed to be “wherever Sam Mendes wants to take it,” and after originally dispelling myths that he wouldn’t return to the »
