Oscar-Winning Original Songs Split Between Part of Plot and End Credits

14 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Of the five Oscar-nominated original songs for the 87th Academy Awards, Selma’s “Glory” and Beyond the Light’s “Grateful” are the only songs that solely play over the end credits of their respective film. The other three songs — “Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, “Lost Stars” from Begin Again and “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me — are all performed at some point during the film.

Now, that’s not to say that the end-credits songs aren’t relevant to the plot. Both “Grateful” and “Glory” stick with the themes of their respective films and summarize relevant events, even if they aren’t integral to each plot’s progression.

“Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie is featured in the film as a popular song in the Lego universe, one the characters sing along to, but »

Skins Star Kaya Scodelario To Play Female Role In Pirates Of The Caribbean 5

15 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ian West/Pa Archive

After a stellar first instalment, the quality of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies would quickly decline. However, with a haul of over $3.7 billion worldwide in total, Disney aren’t going to let this franchise go the way of a sinking ship any time soon!

The fifth movie is still very much moving ahead then, with Johnny Depp set to reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, and Geoffrey Rush returning as Captain Barbossa. Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner is also rumoured to make a comeback.

New additions include Maleficent star Brenton Thwaites as a British soldier who finds himself working alongside Sparrow, but specific details are sparse, and all we really know for sure is that his character in the movie is named Henry!

There have also been reports of Javier Bardem (Skyfall) being in talks to play Pirates of the Caribbean’s lead villain, »

MGM executives want Adele return for Spectre

23 January 2015 12:08 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems Adele’s involvement with Skyfall was so well received that executives at MGM want the singer to return for the latest James Bond film Spectre.

The singer was spotted in Los Angeles and a source at MGM reportedly said, “Everyone thinks Adele is here for her much anticipated new album, but she is actually working on a music idea for the James Bond film. She hadn’t been in contact with the film bosses for a few weeks, but suddenly she said​ she had great plans for the theme, so they flew her over.”

Right now this has not been confirmed but there has been a call from fans asking for Adele to return to the James Bond franchise. Her theme to Skyfall was one of if not the most popular James Bond themes ever, and also won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Are Lady Gaga and Adele Cooking Up New Music? See the Stunning Selfie!

22 January 2015 12:36 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Is there an Adele-Lady Gaga collaboration in the works? Judging by Mother Monster's latest selfie, it’s certainly possible! This is a collaboration that we can get behind.

Gaga shared stunning snapshot on Instagram with a fresh-faced and beaming Adele. She captioned the pic, "Nothing like a Wednesday night bro-down with the beautiful Adele."

News: 17 Times Lady Gaga Worshipped Her Little Monsters

No word on what exactly those two "bros" were up to, but we can only hope that it involved making sweet music together. Gaga has been documenting her latest work in the studio on Instagram, while Adele is due for a new release any day now. If this hypothetical collab is, in fact, a reality – we have to wonder whose new album it will feature on. (A rep for Adele had "no comment" on the speculation.)

Rumor has it (pun intended) that Adele is currently in Los Angeles to work on music for the »

James Bond: Ranking The 007 Actors From Worst To Best

20 January 2015 6:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

MGM

Even in a time where big-budget franchises are in real danger of reaching saturation point, the James Bond movies remain a unique entity in blockbuster filmmaking; much like the lead character, the series itself has constantly moved with the times and reinvented itself over and over again since its inception in 1962 in order to remain relevant, earning over $6bn at the box office in the process. Just as popular now as it was 50 years ago, James Bond is all-but-guaranteed to feature on the big-screen for decades to come.

The twenty-fourth James Bond movie Spectre is currently in the midst of shooting, and the project comes burdened with incredibly high expectations; Sam Mendes becomes the first director in over 25 years to helm back-to-back installments, looking to build on the unprecedented success of Skyfall. The last Bond enjoyed huge critical and commercial success, currently boasting a score of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes »

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 »

11 Times James Bond Said F**k You To The Fans

16 January 2015 6:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alastair Grant/AP

The James Bond movie franchise is, of course, one of the most iconic and successful pop-culture properties of all time, boasting a massively broad appeal and sustaining itself incredibly well over the last 50-plus years through both the good and the bad times.

Though it’s fair to say that the series is certainly at a high-point at the moment with the recent success of Sam Mendes’ billion dollar-grossing Skyfall, there have absolutely been times over the years where it’s felt like MGM and the filmmakers just haven’t given a damn at all about actually making a good movie that fans are going to like.

The reasons for this are numerous: allowing actors an over-extended tenure (and you all know which one specifically), too much downtime between films or sometimes not enough, terrible supporting characters, plots that are just too outlandish, and casting controversy that »

‘Paddington’ Review: A Charming Bear Overcomes the Odds, and So Does His Movie (Video)

14 January 2015 12:54 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

This sweetly funny adaptation of the popular children’s book series avoids one misstep after another, resulting in a film that will delight kids and parents...

Even before they replaced the lead voice actor and punted the U.S. release date from December to January, the odds weren’t exactly in favor of “Paddington.” After all, so many charming children’s storybooks have had the delight squeezed out of them after being elongated into a three-act structure on the way to the big screen. (Remembering the “Cat in the Hat” movie still brings on an involuntary shudder.)

Watch: Lucifer Doesn't Fall Alone In New Trailer For 'Penny Dreadful' Season 2

13 January 2015 6:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Lost between the duelling buzz storms of “True Detective and ”Fargo“ last year, Showtime’s ”Penny Dreadful“ seems destined to be underrated by TV critics who can be just as dismissive of the horror genre as their big-screen counterparts. Shows about monster hunters in Victorian London aren’t the type to garner industry awards and be spoken about in hushed reverential tones by tastemakers. Still, the show – and fellow squirm-fest ”Hannibal" – makes the case that horror can be just as fertile a creative ground as the standard crime drama, and the new trailer is here to prove it. Set to a chilly version of the old English folk song “The Unquiet Grave,” the moody trailer for the horror series plants its flag more on the arty side than the schlocky side, though creepy imagery still rules the day. Created by “Skyfall” writer John Logan – with his Bond partner Sam Mendes »

Top Ten Most Anticipated Blockbusters of 2015

12 January 2015 9:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I had a hell of a time trying to figure out how to tackle a list of my most anticipated movies of 2015. I'm not going to take the time to count the number of sequels, remakes, spin-offs, reboots, parts two of two or re-imaginings that are hitting theaters this year because, quite frankly, it doesn't matter any more. Trying to figure out where a film like Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens fit into a list of most anticipated films that weren't anything like it was impossible. Even then, how much am I "anticipating" the new Star Wars film versus how curious am I to simply see how it will turn out now that it's out of the hands of George Lucas and into the hands of J.J. Abrams, whose last Star Trek film was a complete messc Therefore, I decided on two distinctions in film, the blockbusters and then everything else. »

Marvel vs. 007: Why Coulson is more of a hero than Bond

10 January 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[This article tries to avoid any major spoilers, and so provides more of a general overview. Most specific plot points are implied, so while the article is not guaranteed to be 100% spoiler-free, it covers things which are generally considered common knowledge, and so most of the main plot points should be left intact.]

In the UK, both Skyfall and The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble) are being shown on television tonight on different channels at overlapping times, so fans will only be able to watch one. (That would seem to provoke a reaction like, 'I'm not going to choose between my favourite actor to play James Bond and my favourite writer! That's insane troll logic!')

Bond and Marvel are two of the biggest franchises in the world at the moment, with each set to release their next instalment this year (Spectre and Avengers: Age of Ultron). This being the internet, the default response would be to pit the two against each other, as if one could only be a fan of one franchise, not both. The prepondance of alternative viewing options, like DVDs, TV repeats, etc. ultimately render such a discussion moot, in the colloquial sense of the word, meaning redundant. However, it's »
