Review: Michael Giacchino At 50, Live At The Royal Albert Hall

Michael Giacchino is a film composer who’s still on the up and if you’ve watched the likes of Lost, Rogue One, Jurassic World, a whole host of Pixar or any of the recent Star Trek films then his music has definitely entered your life, and that’s just a small selection. Giacchino has built an impressive body of work over the past 18 years and I was more than excited to see him perform live, and so on the occasion of his 50th birthday celebrations at the Royal Albert Hall, it was quite exceptional.

Following the likes of Ennio Morricone, Howard Shore, Henry Mancini, Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer and the mighty John Williams, Giacchino has played the Albert Hall before when he lead an orchestra for a live version of Star Trek into Darkness in 2014 but this Friday night was something particularly special, as it was to celebrate his 50th Birthday.

Why John Carter Wasn’t as Bad as Everyone Thought

If you ever watched John Carter you might have thought the movie was worth a look. In truth it was a lot better than many critics seemed to think. It was original in other words, and since people tend to take a dim view of things that they don’t know and can’t predict it was regrettably trashed and left to linger in cinema limbo for being something that people didn’t understand. This is the dilemma of Hollywood really. The story lines that people come up with could be some of the greatest stories in the world, but unless they’re marketed

Joe Corallo: Maxwell’s Demons

  • Comicmix
Vault Comics is one of the biggest stories on the indie comics scene this year. With publisher Damian Wassel and editor-in-chief Adrian Wassel at the helm, Vault has created a line of science fiction and fantasy comics with seasoned veterans like Tim Daniel doing design and art direction as well as books like Fissure and rising stars including David Booher on Powerless and Alien Bounty Hunter (with producer Mark Wahlberg) and Natasha Alterici on Heathen.

This past week I was able to chat with Deniz Camp and Vittorio Astone about their new comic at Vault, Maxwell’s Demons.

Joe: What’s the elevator pitch for Maxwell’s Demons? What’s the hook?

Deniz: Maxwell’s Demons is the story of Maxwell Maas, the greatest mind of his generation. Told in a series of standalone stories, each focused on Max at a different point in his life and arranged non-chronologically, it

Mark Strong interview - Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Stardust, Kick-Ass

Duncan Bowles Sep 21, 2017

Mark Strong chats to us about Kingsman 2, reuniting with Matthew Vaughn, and the brilliant Stardust...

Spoilers for Sherlock Holmes and Kick-Ass 2 lie ahead. We've also marked a bit in big red letters where we talk about a specific Kingsman 2 spoiler.

While Matthew Vaughn has been the director responsible for a string of fantastic movies, his talisman in front of the camera and a core part of his cinematic journey since Stardust, is Mark Strong. As the superbly villainous (or some might say driven) Septimus, a character just as mesmerising dead or alive, Strong imbued him with a roguish evil that really made him stand out in a packed and stellar cast line-up. His next project with Vaughn saw him take up arms (and fists) against a teenage due in Kick-Ass, doling out a new definition of ‘Daddy issues’ yet giving Frank D’Amico a

Michael Giacchino interview: the art of scoring movies

Sean Wilson Sep 29, 2017

War For The Planet Of The Apes, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Star Wars and more, as we chat to composer Michael Giacchino...

Few blockbuster composers are in as much demand as Michael Giacchino. Having risen through the ranks of video game scoring and smash-hit TV sucesses with the likes of Lost, the versatile composer has over the last decade musically defined several enormous franchises. From Rogue One to Jurassic World to acclaimed Pixar Oscar-winners like Up, there's no end to Giacchino's talents.

With his 50th birthday concert at the Royal Albert Hall coming up on 20th October, we were delighted to catch up with Michael to ask that all-important question: what makes a truly great film score?

Well, it's been 15 years since I was playing Medal Of Honor: Frontline on the PS2 and now I'm sat here talking to its composer! Seriously, how hard were the tanks to defeat in that game?

You Can’t Buy a Franchise, You Have to Build One

Neil Calloway on Disney suffocating Star Wars

After American Graffiti, George Lucas spent a while shoving his Western in space script under the nose of anyone who cared to read it. They gave him suggestions on how to improve it, he took them on, and a few years later he finally shot the film. It came out, and changed cinema forever. He then worked with others, letting them direct and write more films, building a huge franchise.

In 2012, Disney paid more than $4 billion to George Lucas for the rights to that franchise. Having failed to build their own with John Carter, they just bought one off the shelf. The problem is, you can’t just do that and expect success. As Lucas himself proved with the Star Wars prequels, it’s hard to make films that people truly love. It says a lot that of the five Disney Star Wars films,

'Stranger Things': 7 Questions We Have For Season 2

'Stranger Things': 7 Questions We Have For Season 2
Has it only been a little over a year since Stranger Things arrived with almost no hype – and then, within days of Netflix dropping the first season online, became one of 2016's most talked-about TV shows? Created by twin brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, the first season of the sci-fi/horror series paid homage to Stephen King novels and the Eighties' classic Spielberg-to-slasher genre films, while telling a story about super-powered paranormal entities, covert government agencies, small-town Indiana kids and a dark dimension known as "the Upside Down." Even more than the nostalgic kick,

'Buck Rogers' Ownership at Center of Coming Trial

'Buck Rogers' Ownership at Center of Coming Trial
Buck Rogers isn't quite as well-known as Luke Skywalker, Captain James T. Kirk or Flash Gordon, but people are more familiar with Buck Rogers than John Carter, Hal 9000 and The Doctor from Dr. Who. How do we know that? A survey was taken as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

The lawsuit is between descendants of author Philip Francis Nowlan, who created the fictional space explorer in the 1920s, and descendants of John Flint Dille, whose newspaper company once syndicated a Buck Rogers comic strip. On Friday, a Pennsylvania federal judge wrote the latest chapter in a long-running contest over rights with a...

Visiting the set of American Assassin

Ryan Lambie Aug 29, 2017

We ventured out to the fringes of London to check on the progress of the action thriller, American Assassin. Here's how we got on...

It comes to something when you’re so lily-livered that gunshot makes you jump even after you’re told that it’s coming. It’s early October 2016, and I’m sitting in a darkened warehouse in London where filming on American Assassin is taking place. Actor Dylan O'Brien is on set, holding a machine gun in a darkened tunnel. Illuminated by diffuse light from above, he looks lean and bestubbled, his firearm pointed straight towards the camera.

Q&A with Nights Of The Living Dead Co-Editor Jonathan Maberry, Read an Excerpt from His Short Story “Lone Gunman”

  • DailyDead
For years, he's brought the dead to life in books like Patient Zero and Rot & Ruin, so it's rather fitting that prolific author Jonathan Maberry has now teamed up with the legendary George A. Romero to co-edit an anthology set within the early stages of the zombie uprising in Night of the Living Dead. Titled Nights of the Living Dead, the new anthology is now available from St. Martin's Press (check out our giveaway here), and to celebrate, we caught up with Maberry for our latest Q&A feature to discuss his work on the living dead dream project, and we also have a claustrophobic excerpt from his short story "Lone Gunman."

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Jonathan. How did the opportunity come about to collaborate on a Night of the Living Dead anthology with the legend himself, George A. Romero?

David Goyer to adapt Isaac Asimov's Foundation into TV series

  • JoBlo
Isaac Asimov's seminal Foundation book series is one of those white whales, like Rendezvous With Rama, that seems like it would never see the light of day. Not only is it a sprawling, multi-character, and complexly political work, but also many of its best ideas have already been cannibalized by things like Star Wars (a similar problem John Carter faced). So the challenge to adapting... Read More...
