Michael Giacchino Will Score Doctor Strange Soundtrack

6 May 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just under six months until Marvel's second Phase 3 movie, Doctor Strange, hits theaters, the studio has brought in its composer, Oscar winner Michael Giacchino. The movie will mark his first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he is no stranger to superhero tales, having composed the scores for Pixar's The Incredibles and Disney's Sky High. While this is his first Marvel movie, the composer has a long history with Disney.

Michael Giacchino won his first Oscar for composing the original score for Disney Pixar's Up, and he was nominated two years earlier for his work on another Pixar classic, Ratatouille. He got his start composing music for video games, such as the game tie-in for The Lost World and another Jurassic Park game, Warpath. He eventually moved on to features with The Incredibles, Sky High, The Family Stone, Mission: Impossible III, Speed Racer, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, »

Star Trek Beyond… Anyone Who Cares?

17 April 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black discusses Star Trek Beyond, and whether anyone really cares…

If you took a straw poll of the general population, how many of them would know there was a new Star Trek movie dropping this summer? The chances are not nearly as many as there should be. Star Trek Beyond, the third movie of the J.J. Abrams spearheaded revival, has been marketed quite strangely so far, especially for one of the world’s most well-known and lucrative franchises. We have scant knowledge of plot, casting and have been granted just one trailer alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a trailer which went down like a lead balloon with much of the fandom given it played a lot like the Fast & Furious pictures incoming director Justin Lin is famous for. For a movie landing on the 50th anniversary of a beloved property, its remarkably low-key at this stage, as are »

17 April 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Happy birthday, Jennifer Garner! The beautiful actress turns 44 today, if you can believe such a story, and to celebrate the Miracles From Heaven star, we've launched an investigation into a different kind of miracle—the fact that Garner appears to be aging in reverse. She remains as glowing today as she ever was playing a super-spy on Alias or engaging in silliness or when she was 13 Going on 30, and if possible she's actually more radiant than ever. So let's take a closer look (just as we suspected, not a pore in sight...) (Jen on The Tonight Show in 2003.) The Neutrogena spokeswoman is obsessed with sunscreen. She is constantly urging »

J.J. Abrams Talks TV Show Ideas With Chris Rock at Tribeca Film Festival

15 April 2016 7:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A half-hour drama created by J.J. Abrams and starring Chris Rock? That was just one of the topics of conversation to come up in a far-ranging public discussion between Abrams and Rock at the Tribeca Film Festival, during which Abrams also apologized for overdoing it on the lens flares, revealed his personal conception of God and refused to answer a pre-teen in the audience who asked him who Rey’s parents are.

Speaking with an easy rapport at an event that was part of the Tribeca Talks series of public conversations, the two spitballed an idea for a TV show when Rock asked Abrams what he should be doing in television.

Abrams shot back, “If I nail it, will you do it with me?”

“Sure,” Rock agreed. “I’m probably a single-camera show,” he added. “My skill set is multi-camera, but what’s gonna keep me interested, keep me intrigued, »

J.J. Abrams Producing Greg Grunberg’s Graphic Novel Adaptation ‘Dream Jumper’

1 April 2016 2:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount has picked up the movie rights to Greg Grunberg’s two-part graphic novel “Dream Jumper.” Grunberg will team up with long-time buddy J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot banner to produce the adaptation.

The story follows a boy who discovers he can jump into other people’s dreams. But that power turns into a nightmare, literally, when his friends begin falling into an endless sleep, and an inhabitant of the dream world wants the boy’s abilities for itself.

Paramount had no comment.

Grunberg co-wrote the book with Lucas Turnbloom, who also illustrated. Scholastic is publishing the first book June 28, 2016.

Lindsey Weber of Bad Robot will produce with Abrams.

Abrams and Grunberg’s ties go back to Abrams’ TV show “Felicity,” which Abrams created and Grunberg co-starred in. Since then, Grunberg has been a staple in Abrams’ projects; he co-starred in Abrams’ “Alias,” and made cameos in “Star Trek, »

While much of the Emmy buzz surrounding FX's limited series "The People v. O.J. Simpson" has centered around A-listers Sarah Paulson, Courtney B.
