In 1941 Czechoslovakia was occupied by Nazi forces, governed by SS General Reinhard Heydrich. Nicknamed “The Butcher of Prague”, Heydrich had a meteoric rise through the SS ranks and was now second only to Himmler and Hitler in the Third Reich’s hierarchy. His unparalleled brutality and reign of terror on the Czech resistance movement led Allied authorities in London to hatch a top-secret mission that would change history. Trained by British forces, »

Last fall, I shared a video of myself playing a looping cello version of “Time” from Hans Zimmer’s score for Inception. The response was amazing and I felt so encouraged that I actually went into a studio and recorded an entire Ep of looping cello music (on sale today!). To promote the Ep, I wanted to create […]

After Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi blockbuster Interstellar divided critics, the director went quiet as to his next movie, but now it’s been revealed that he’s actually been hard at work on a very different sort of project.
As the helmer and his company Syncopy collaborate with Zeitgeist Films to oversee and curate Blu-Ray releases, one of the first titles to be announced was a compilation of shorts directed by acclaimed animation directors Stephen and Timothy Quay. And now, it’s been revealed that Nolan has expressed his admiration for the filmmakers in another way: by directing a short documentary, simply titled Quay, about the duo.
Here’s Film Forum’s description of the brothers »

According to TribecaFilm, the British filmmaker has quietly put together a short entitled Quay, which is a documentary about stop motion animators Stephen and Timothy Quay.
The short is set to receive its world premiere on August 19th as part of Film Forum’s The Quay Brothers – In 35Mm, a celebration of the twins’ work, which will also include screenings of their films In Absentia, The Comb and Street of Crocodiles.
If you’re in New York and want to grab some tickets for the screening, you can do so here.

Twin animators Stephen and Timothy Quay have done shorts and full on features for several decades.
On top of that, Nolan has directed the short documentary "Quay" about the animators, with the short to premiere in New York on August 19th. Nolan along with the Quay brothers will appear in conversation at the two screenings to discuss their work.

Ellen Page and Julianne Moore have, over the courses of their career, received critical acclaim for numerous dramatic performances, with Moore’s filmography including the likes of films such as Safe, Boogie Nights, Far From Heaven, and I’m Not There, among others, culminating in an Academy Award for Best Leading Actress for her role in 2014’s Still Alice. Page, meanwhile, has been seen in Whip It, Inception, and The East. The two performers, however, have yet to work together, a fact that is poised to change with their upcoming feature Freeheld. The film’s synopsis is below.
New Jersey police lieutenant, Laurel Hester, and her registered domestic partner, Stacie Andree, both battle to secure Hester’s pension benefits when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Inside Out, 2015.
Directed by Pete Docter.
After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.
Moving away from monsters, toys and old-aged pensioners, Pixar’s 15th feature delves into something even larger namely the mind of a young girl, Riley. Uprooted at the age of 11 from Minnesota to move to San Francisco, her life is turned “inside out”, taking her away from her friends and her hobbies. Such thunderous events can reek havoc on the minds of the best of us, but what of that of a young girl who is still discovering about the world, still soaking up information and surroundings like a sponge, free »

We’ve just been alerted to this fantastic 8-minute video tribute to Leonardo DiCaprio over on YouTube. Featuring clips from pretty much all of his movies, and edited by a user who goes simply by the name of Ml, the video might just be the best thing you see today.
Take a look at the Leonardo DiCaprio video tribute below. Bravo.

Since Ellen Page stunned us with her diabolical smarts in "Hard Candy" and her straightforward drollness in "Juno," we haven't gotten to see the Oscar-nominated actress in many movies that live up to her compelling charms. Remember "Smart People" with Sarah Jessica Parker? No? Do you ever think about her exposition-spewing character Ariadne in "Inception"? What about the time Woody Allen wasted her (and Judy Davis!) in "To Rome with Love"? Enough is enough. A new trailer just debuted for "Freeheld," a drama about a real-life woman named Laurel Hester (played here by Julianne Moore) who was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and fought to ensure that her pension benefits would be passed along to her partner Stacie (Page). The trailer is gripping; watch it at Buzzfeed. (We'll add it here when an embeddable version is released.) Last year when Page came out as a lesbian at a Human Rights Campaign event, »

Either I’ve been staying on top of my homework or 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for film scores already. From blockbuster disappointments to indie oddities and mindless action sequels, film music has once again shown it can transcend its respective dreck just as much as it can enhance the cinematic experience. With film festival season on the horizon, let’s check in with the best movie music of the year:
Neil Blomkamp’s movies seem to be getting worse, but Hans Zimmer’s sensibilities are getting more exotic and daring. Course-correcting from the massive publicity stunt that was The Amazing Spider-man 2, the master of bombast continues to experiment with digital textures, recruiting pupils Kawczyksnki and Mazzaro for a score that humanizes and contextualizes the childish perspective of its Robocop with a heart of gold.

If there’s a reason Miguel Branco’s Christopher Nolan supercut strikes you as epic, it’s because that’s exactly what most of the British filmmaker’s movies are. Ambitious in terms of scope, concept, and often runtime, Christopher Nolan’s films have grossed well over $4 billion worldwide, and Branco pays modest and genuine tribute to the visionary writer-director in his not quite three-and-a-half-minute video. The 206-second supercut spans the world, as well as dreamt worlds, and the galaxies. It witnesses the rise and fall of heroes and their villains. And it features gorgeous music from Hans Zimmer, including “A Watchful Guardian” from “The Dark Knight,” which he wrote with James Newton Howard. Of course, for those whose first introduction to Nolan came in the form of either a “Dark Knight” film, “Inception,” or “Interstellar,” it’s forgivable to forget the helmer’s first features were more humble. “Following »

Leo to the rescue! Leonardo DiCaprio is using his power — and money — for good. On Tuesday, July 14, the actor's foundation announced that it had provided a whopping $15 million in grants to help save the planet. "The destruction of our planet continues at a pace we can no longer afford to ignore," the Inception star, 40, said in a press release about the news. "We have a responsibility to innovate a future where the habitability of our planet does not come at the expense [...] »
I remember when Legendary Pictures threw a panel in a smaller room in the San Diego Convention Center, giving away copies of "Mass Effect 2" to anyone who showed up to hear them talk about their plans for movies like "Seventh Son," "The Great Wall," and an adaptation of "Mass Effect." They've come a long way. At that point, they were partnered with Warner Bros., and they were looking to define who they were are a company. Oh, sure, they were major financial and creative players on any number of big films already, like Nolan's first two Batman films, Snyder's "300" and "Watchmen," "The Hangover," "Inception," and my beloved "Where The Wild Things Are." But talking to Thomas Tull, talking to Jon Jashni, it was clear that what they craved were films that were theirs from start to finish, movies that they felt undisputedly reflected their sensibilities. It was strange seeing them »

Christopher Nolan has a script for a new movie ready - it's just nobody knows what it is yet...
With his last epic, Interstellar, well in the rearview mirror, word comes that Christopher Nolan has completed what’s described as a “comprehensive draft” of the screenplay for his next film. According to Slashfilm, cinematographer Will McCrabb tweeted the news.
But that, at the moment, is all we know. Nolan is famous for not discussing his next project while promoting his latest one, so there was no discussion of any future plans while he was making the press rounds for Interstellar. So we don’t know whether the new screenplay is original or adapted from existing material, nor do we know what genre it’s in.

"The Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson may have gotten into trouble during an interview with Conan O'Brien last night. There have been rumors about Lionsgate potentially continuing the franchise beyond "Mockingjay Part 2" in some way, though it's not sure how.
O'Brien asked if they'd heard anything to which Hutchinson started saying: "There is..." before covering his mouth and then saying "I'm sorry, I can't say that. We'll see what happens" as a wide-eyed Jennifer Lawrence looked on. O'Brien pressed him further but nothing more came out. [Source: Team Coco]
