Trevor Rabin’s Rousing Scores a Testament to Life After Yes

23 June 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Trevor Rabin had no idea that, on Nov. 4, 2008, he was about to be immortalized.

Barack Obama had just been elected president of the United States, and as he finished his acceptance speech, the music that began to play was Rabin’s inspirational theme from the football movie “Remember the Titans.”

For a white South African whose family fought against apartheid when it was not just unfashionable but downright dangerous, this prominent showcase of his music — written for a movie about black and white high-school players learning to get along and win the season — was especially meaningful.

“I was happy I was on the winning ticket,” Rabin says with a laugh.

Yet that’s just one moment in a long, strange trip that began in Johannesburg and ended in Hollywood, where Rabin is now an in-demand film composer with no fewer than 13 Jerry Bruckheimer movies under his belt (including “Titans,” “Armageddon »

Trevor Rabin Strikes Chord With Collaborators

23 June 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“He can do just about anything,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer says of composer Trevor Rabin. “That’s what you want: a composer who’s creative, who understands the musical rhythm and language of scenes, how to bring out the emotion that the director and actors were striving for.”

It was Bruckheimer who discovered Rabin’s facility with sports movies. “He can write those great anthems, those triumphant melodies that every athlete would love to hear as he’s making the last basket or the last goal or the last touchdown. It’s something that’s innate in his talent.”

Bruckheimer is not the only filmmaker to sing Rabin’s praises. Jon Turteltaub, who directed the “National Treasure” films, laughs about their initial musical encounter: “He played us a bunch of music with scenes. I so despised the instrumentation he used, I looked at him and said, ‘This sounds like European porn! »

Gimme That! Diane Kruger's $45 Checkered Culottes Ensemble

9 June 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Now this is why we call her Diane do-no-wrong. Every time Diane Kruger makes an appearance, two things are guaranteed: Her outfit will be flawless, and the sartorial crowd will be left in awe of her superhuman style. And as per usual, the 38-year-old actress stepped out in New York City yesterday in a polished ensemble good enough to make even Anna Wintour go weak in the knees. But this time, her haute couture style didn't exactly have a high end price tag. On the arm of longtime love Joshua Jackson, Diane styled a breezy blouse and culottes set with a refined checkered print from Forever 21. But wait, it gets better: The set rings in at $45 total. Feel free to squeal!  The National Treasure star »

Film Review: ‘Beyond the Mask’

5 June 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A British mercenary’s rocky road to redemption (and romance) leads him into the very heart of the American Revolution in director Chad Burns’ “Beyond the Mask,” a mostly stiff, infrequently stirring attempt to furnish a swashbuckling historical yarn for Christian audiences. The mixed result feels like a half-glass affair all around: Production values are well above the faith-based-indie average, if still somewhat deficient in texture and atmosphere; and the script is preachy in ways that will be wholly acceptable to its target audience (and perhaps even a few non-believers who stumble in by accident), yet still so simplistically and creakily plotted that dramatic excitement and character complexity remain firmly at bay. Rolling out in more than 100 theaters after profitable four-wall and VOD exposure, this Kickstarter-funded, $4 million-budget effort should benefit from its unusually ambitious action-adventure approach, but seems unlikely to match the grassroots success of Freestyle’s 2014 hit “God’s Not Dead. »

First images from CBS’ Rush Hour TV reboot

14 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in October 2014 it was revealed that Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town, Scrubs) was developing a TV reboot of the popular Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker buddy-cop comedy Rush Hour. It was then announced in January that CBS had picked up pilot and now we’ve finally got our first look at the new double act in action.

Jon Foo (Tekken) will replace Jackie Chan as Detective Lee and Justin Hires (21 jump Street) will take over from Chris Tucker as loudmouth Detective James Carter.

Check out the images and official synopsis below:

Rush Hour, a reimagining of the hit feature film franchise, is a buddy-cop drama about a maverick Lapd detective and a by-the-book detective from Hong Kong who knock heads when they are forced to partner together.

Detective Lee (Jon Foo) is a reserved, honorable master martial artist with lightning-fast moves who comes to L.A. to avenge his sister’s »

The 5 Most Off-The-Wall Nicolas Cage Performances

4 May 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nicolas Cage has a formidable reputation, which is unsurprising given that he has been performing onscreen since 1981, but that was long before the internet got hold of him and his work. Now, in the fourth decade of a distinguished career, the Academy Award winner and his back catalogue are the inspiration for a range of ‘memes’ based on everything from his hair, to his tendency to deliver performances that seem to be somewhat off-the-wall.

He may not have enjoyed much box office success in recent years, but Nicolas Cage has a very devoted fan base that have a particular appreciation for projects and scenes in which he has a chance to go ‘Full Cage.’ This usually involves making some scary faces – often with wide eyes and a ghoulish grin – shouting very loudly, and gesticulating wildly. There may be screaming involved, and another person is very often the focus of his menace. »

Living With Lincoln: An Interview with the Filmmakers

13 April 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

In the late 1890s, Frederick Hill Meserve, the son of a Union solider, started collecting photographs from the Civil War. Collecting images — particularly those of President Lincoln — became something of an obsession, and he eventually acquired the largest single collection of Lincoln images. Meserve’s collection was used as the basis for the penny, the portrait on the $5 bill, the Lincoln Memorial and Mount Rushmore. The collection is vast — over 70,000 items — and became a family project for five generations. As if this didn’t sound more amazing than the plot of National Treasure, it gets better: Dorothy Meserve […] »

Review: "Outcast" (2014) Starring Hayden Christiansen And Nicolas Cage; Blu-ray Special Edition

7 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Doug Oswald

Nicolas Cage is a workhorse and may be one of the busiest actors today. In an era where big name actors might release a single movie per year, Cage typically comes out with three, four or even five. At any given time he may have over a half dozen movies in various stages of production. Cage is a good actor, often a very good actor, and has made some very entertaining movies that stand up to repeat viewings. I enjoy much of what he does from the over-the-top supernatural action-horror movies “Ghost Rider” and “Drive Angry,” to the adventure-mystery “National Treasure” franchise and his voice work for about a half-dozen animated movies. His list of credits and genres is vast and, if his movie output is any indication, he’s a very busy guy. This can be a good thing for Cage fans, but may result in »

"Rush Hour" Series Nabs Its Other Lead

14 March 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Justin Hires ("21 Jump Street," "Key and Peele") is set to play Carter, the role which Chris Tucker made famous, in CBS' TV adaptation of the hit "Rush Hour" movie franchise.

He joins British actor Jon Foo ("Tekken," "Vikingdom," "The Protector") who is taking on the role of Detective Lee which Jackie Chan played in the films.

Hires' Carter is an irreverent bad-boy detective who uses unorthodox methods to get results. He also has no interest in a partner, but is forced to work with a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police detective assigned to a case in Los Angeles.

Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick penned and will executive produce the show. "National Treasure" helmer Jon Turteltaub will direct the pilot and executive produce as well.
