"Drive" Gets Rescored For UK Next Week

4 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the most acclaimed elements of Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive" was the score - a blend of original electronic numbers by composer Cliff Martinez along with a couple of key pop songs such as College & Electric Youth's "A Real Hero," The Chromatics' "Tick of the Clock" and Kavinsky and Lovefoxxx's "Nightcall".

For a film with minimal dialogue, the score played a very important part in generating that film's sense of tone. Now, in an intersting experiment, Radio 1 and BBC Three have announced plans to rescore the entire film for a one-time only broadcast in the UK next week.

Zane Lowe is curating the project which is being dubbed "Radio 1 Rescores: Drive," which suggests there may be more re-score broadcasts of this type on the way.

The new score will boast all original music from thirteen bands/artists including the likes of - The 1975, Baauer, Banks, Bastille, »

‘Drive’ Gets a New Soundtrack for UK Broadcast

8 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Part of the reason Nicolas Winding Refn‘s film Drive took on an unusual life was the film’s skillful use of music. Beyond the original electronic compositions from Cliff Martinez (The Knick, Only God Forgives), the heartbeat of the very quiet film was provided by pop and electronic songs from Kavinsky and Chromatics. Music was a more […]

Zane Lowe is curating a new soundtrack for the Ryan Gosling film Drive.

Listen to Chvrches cover 'Get Away' for Radio 1 Rescores: Drive below:

The film, complete with reworked soundtrack, will be shown on October 30 at 10pm on BBC Three.

Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn spoke about the project, saying: "I consider it a great honour that my movie Drive inspired so many wonderful artists to come together and create one ultra-cool glam experience."

Director David Ayer says Suicide Squad is “The Dirty Dozen with supervillains”

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, Warner Bros. announced a slate of DC movies to follow Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with the David Ayer-directed Suicide Squad joining Zack Snyder’s DC team-up as part of the studio’s 2016 offerings. Now the director has briefly spoken about the supervillain ensemble during a promotional interview for his latest film Fury, calling it The Dirty Dozen with supervillains…

Fury whetted my appetite for a bigger canvas and this idea of world creation,” Ayer tells Empire Online. “You can do amazing things as a filmmaker if you have the proper tools, and those are time and money. I can say that it’s a Dirty Dozen with supervillains. Then I can ask the question, ‘Does a movie really need good guys?'”

After seemingly confirming the inclusion of Captain Boomerang, Ayer then went on to discuss his appreciation for the comic book genre, stating that: »

‘Drive’ Getting Nicolas Winding Refn-Approved Rescored Version With Chvrches, Foals & More

12 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One can’t listen to more than a few seconds of Kavinsky‘s Nightcall or College‘s A Real Hero before being taken directly back to Nicolas Winding Refn‘s version of Los Angeles in Drive. Integral to the director’s 2011, Ryan Gosling-led break-out hit was indeed the soundtrack and Cliff Martinez‘s score, but now a few years later, we’re getting […] »

Listen To Chvrches "Get Away" From The Rescored Version Of Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Drive' Plus Check Out The Trailer

12 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Quite simply, the soundtrack to Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive" is one of the best of the past few years. Seamlessly blending Cliff Martinez's distinct, throbbing score with retro-future jams by Kavinsky, College, Chromatics, and Desire, the entire sonic palette helped inform the neon mood of the Ryan Gosling starring film. But what happens when you drape the movie with a bunch of random new music? Well, you're about to find out. BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe has undertaken the task of rescoring "Drive," with Chvrches, Foals, Sbtrkt, Jon Hopkins, Laura Mvula, the 1975, Baauer, Banks, Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, Eric Prydz, the Neighbourhood, and Zcc (aka Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro) all tapped to provide new exclusive music. A 30-second trailer—with Lowe talking all over it—does preview a bit of what it will sound like, and, unsurprisingly, results may vary. Refn carefully crafted his film with »

58th BFI London Film Festival – The Goob (2014)

19 October 2014 12:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Goob, 2014.

Directed by Guy Myhill.

Starring Sienna Guillory, Sean Harris, Hannah Spearritt and Liam Walpole.

Synopsis:

A teenage boy in the rural North of England experiences life after school, dominated by his mother’s overbearing boyfriend.

 

There were a few different press screenings at 3pm on Thursday 9th October. Both Guidelines, a film in contention for the Documentary award, and White God, winner of the Un Certain Regard and Palm Dog (yes, that is actually an award) at this year’s Cannes, were showing in adjacent theatres. I went for The Goob. I’d like to say it’s because the film’s director, Guy Myhill, is an exciting prospect, his debut being in the First Feature competition, or that he’s hailed as Britiain’s own Harmony Karine. But, in truth, it’s because the title sounded a bit like ‘boob’.

Every small community possesses a ‘Goob'; the »

The rumour mill churns out more names for Doctor Strange

18 October 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s been a few sites chipping in this week with shortlists for the lead role in Doctor Strange – with names such as Ewan McGregor (Star Wars), Ryan Gosling (Drive), Ethan Hawke (Sinister), Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: Episode VII), Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) bandied about – and now the rumour mill has churned a few more contenders for the upcoming Marvel movie.

According to The Wrap, Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice) is still in contention for the part, while Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) remains in the mix along with Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Colin Farrell (Total Recall) and Justin Theroux (The Leftovers). And following his expression of interest, it’s also said that Marvel is giving some thought to Keanu Reeves (John Wick).

Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, and Tom Hardy may join 'Suicide Squad' according to reports

17 October 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) - The Hollywood Reporter reports that Academy Award-nominated actor Ryan Gosling has two superhero franchises knocking on his door. In addition to a meeting he took with Marvel Studios about taking the lead in "Doctor Strange," sources say that Gosling is on director David Ayer's short list for the 2016 Warner Bros. super villain team-up "Suicide Squad." While the film was just confirmed Wednesday and the script still going through drafts, Ayer and the studio are already voicing their desire to make "Squad" an, as THR puts it, "A-list ensemble piece filled with colorful anti-heroes." The site's sources say Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy are being courted along with Gosling, information which bolsters Deadline's claim that the studio was already "in discussions with four A-list stars" for the film. Warner Bros. has yet to comment on this speculation. If Gosling signs up for "Doctor Strange," it will »

Photos: Nicolas Cage Protesting Against His Dying of the Light Movie

17 October 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We recently showed you the trailer for the troubled "Dying of the Light" thriller, starring Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin. The project is directed by Paul Schrader (The Canyons) and executive produced by Nicolas Winding Refn (director of "Drive" and "Only God Forgives"). Now comes word from Schrader that even though he wrote and directed the film, producers took it away from him by taking over the editing and scoring process. Refn has called this "artistic disrespect." Schrader, Refn, Cage and Yelchin are angry about what's going on, but are not legally allowed to say much, because they all signed a non-disparagement clause in their contracts. So to fight this, they have staged a silent protest by wearing shirts bearing the text of the contract. See photos below. "We lost the battle. 'Dying of the Light,' a film I wrote and directed, was taken away from me, re-edited, scored and mixed without my imput, »

Yesterday Warner Bros. unveiled its plans for a DC Cinematic Universe by announcing a slate of superhero movies set to arrive between 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2020.

Ryan Gosling Mulling Franchise Role as He Eyes Doctor Strange, Houdini, and Suicide Squad

15 October 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Thus far, Ryan Gosling has managed to enjoy a successful career without starring in any franchise or studio tentpole films.  His taste has varied nevertheless, ranging from moody dramas like Half Nelson and Drive to lighter films like Crazy, Stupid, Love. and Lars and the Real Girl.  Gosling is currently gearing up to start filming writer/director Shane Black’s 1970s crime noir The Nice Guys opposite Russell Crowe, but the actor’s no-franchise status may soon be changing.  Gosling is reportedly mulling over the possibility of starring in one of a trio of high-profile studio films: Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Summit’s The Secret Life of Houdini, and Warner Bros.DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad.  More after the jump. The folks over at Heat Vision are reporting that Gosling is showing interest in making a franchise play by mulling over a lead role in three major films.  Marvel is »

How Matthew McConaughey's Crazy Ads Gave Lincoln Some Much-Needed Buzz

This story first appeared in the Oct. 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Say what you will about Matthew McConaughey's television campaign for Lincoln Motors, which began airing in September: that the Oscar-winning actor was an unusual choice given that he portrayed a sketchy attorney operating out of, yes, a Lincoln Town Car in The Lincoln Lawyer.  Read more The Top 5 Shirtless Actors Who Should Replace Matthew McConaughey in 'Magic Mike Xxl' Or that the campaign's first spots -- helmed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the Danish director of 2011's Drive -- consist almost entirely of moody shots of

Three Game-Changing Female Producers Make Sure Passion-Driven Films Hit the Screen

7 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Perhaps the least interesting thing about Megan Ellison, Gigi Pritzker and Molly Smith is that these game-changing film financiers happen to be the scions of three of America’s wealthiest families — a status that’s more Trivial Pursuit factoid than it is relevant to their dramatic impact on the current indie movie scene. Indeed, there is a long history of private-sector capitalists who gambled on the film business, from Howard Hughes in the 1940s to the more recent likes of industrialist Steven Rales and fashion magnate Sidney Kimmel — flirtations of varying lengths and intensity, but ultimately, in almost every case, a passing fancy.

What sets Ellison, Pritzker and Smith apart is that the movie business is their business, as well as their all-consuming passion. Financiers they may be, but they’re also creative, hands-on producers with dirt under their fingernails, many notches in their belts, and a keen understanding of »

6 October 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg has begun principal photography on an untitled Cold War spy thriller starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump,” “Philadelphia”).

The production, which also stars Tony Award winner Mark Rylance (“Intimacy,” “The Other Boleyn Girl”), Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan (“Gone Baby Gone,” “Win Win”) and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda (“M*A*S*H,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors”), will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.

Ron Perlman Added to Alex Garcia’s ‘The Jesuit’ (Exclusive)

4 October 2014 2:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rio De Janeiro — Boarding late in the day, Ron Perlman (“Hellboy,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Drive”) has completed the key cast of Alfonso Pineda Ulloa’s “The Jesuit,” L.A.-based Mexican producer Alex Garcia’s biggest action-thriller to date at Ag Studios, departing from a Paul Schrader screenplay.

A road movie actioner, “The Jesuit,” turns on an ex-con, wrongly imprisoned, called the Jesuit, whose ex-wife is murdered by her boyfriend who then kidnaps his son. The Jesuit devises an elaborate plan to save his son and avenge the murder, embarking on a revenge rampage from Texas through Mexico to its deep, deep jungle in Mexico’s south. Perlman plays “The Jesuit’s” out-and-out villain.

“As is most always the case, I was impressed by the writing and the people involved in the process,” Perlman commented on his casting.

“And of course, it didn’t hurt that it was shooting in Mexico, »
