While it's only a matter of time before "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" ends its reign at the top of the box office, that day nearly arrived this weekend. 20th Century Fox went wide with Leonardo DiCaprio's "The Revenant," and the results were phenomenal. Hauling in $38 million dollars, it's one of the best weekends ever for the actor at the box office, with only "Shutter Island," "The Great Gatsby," and "Inception" having better figures on their debut weekends. And the future looks bright for the picture. Barring a total shock, DiCaprio will get an Oscar nomination on Thursday, which should only help "The Revenant" in the coming weeks. Given the reported $135 million budget (which one can only imagine is higher with marketing and production overages factored in), Fox will be happy to have this one stick around as long as possible.

How badly does Leonardo DiCaprio want that Oscar? Three words: raw bison liver. That's right, the actor munched on a real bison liver for a scene in The Revenant, opening wide on Jan. 8. When you're willing to spend nine months of your life on a film shoot, freezing your tuchus off for the pleasure of gnawing on raw offal in director Alejandro Iñárritu's esteemed presence, you want an Oscar like people in hell want ice water. Which isn't to say that Leo doesn't have a right to be thirsty. After all, he's been nominated for the golden guy four times, »

Hans Zimmer scoring Dunkirk for Christopher Nolan is probably the least surprising news you’ve read all week. Although the never-not-ambitious director of The Dark Knight and Interstellar is venturing outside of his comfort zone for the upcoming World War II drama, he’s surrounding himself with familiar faces and frequent collaborators. Inception and The Dark Knight […]

Legendary film composer Hans Zimmer is set to provide the score for Christopher Nolan’s next film Dunkirk. The news was revealed via Hans-Zimmer.com earlier on today. The post also confirmed that the film will start shooting in France this coming May.
Hans Zimmer confirmed to Hans-Zimmer.com he is set to score Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Dunkirk. The film is set for release on July 21, 2017. Shooting should begin in may 2016 in France. As excepted on a Christopher Nolan project, Hans already started working on a few ideas very early on. This marks the 6th collaboration between Hans & Christopher Nolan, after the Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception & Interstellar.

As was reported early last week, filmmaker Christopher Nolan's next project will be a film called "Dunkirk." The film will be shot from Nolan's own original screenplay, and will be set during the World War II evacuation of the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, which took place over the course of eight days in 1940. During that time, 30,000 Allied troops were rescued. Although the film still isn't due to hit theaters for another year and a half, we now know who will be composing the score for the film.
According to the folks over at Collider, Nolan's next film will be scored by none other than Hans Zimmer. This doesn't really come as a huge surprise for those who've been keeping score at home, as Zimmer is responsible for roughly half of Nolan's scores, including music for "The Dark Knight," "Inception," and "Interstellar."

Everything Wrong With Ant-Man
Cinema Sins is back with a new batch of movies to deconstruct, and they're kicking off 2016 with Ant-Man. This 20-minute video delves into the most miniscule of details, which many may not have noticed, while »
Ever since "The Prestige," Hans Zimmer has been Christopher Nolan's go to guy for film scores. So perhaps this isn't the most surprising news in the world, but then again, the WWII movie "Dunkirk" offers a pretty big change of pace for the filmmaker, and it's just as conceivable he could've chosen to go in another direction. Read More: Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, And Mark Rylance To Star In Christopher Nolan's 65mm Shot 'Dunkirk' But he didn't, and according to Hans-Zimmer.com, who have the word from the composer himself, Zimmer will reteam with Nolan to score "Dunkirk." In fact, he's already started working on the music, even though production doesn't start until the spring. So what kind of Zimmer will we get? The organ-happy artist who powered up "Interstellar," the braaaahm-tacular composer of "Inception," or will he go into a different mode altogether? I would assume the latter, »

The impending deal for Dalian Wanda group to buy a majority stake in Legendary Entertainment is poised to create a global entertainment powerhouse that would give China an even more significant foothold in Hollywood.
When the Chinese conglomerate acquired big U.S. movie theater circuit AMC Entertainment for some $2.6 billion in 2012, skeptics were quick to emerge. Who was Wanda? Why was it overpaying for an asset in such a financially challenged business? Did the company have the necessary finance to close the transaction? Did it have the ability to move that amount of capital out of China?
All of those initial doubts have now been answered as Wanda has embarked on a three-year expansion spree mixing up acquisitions and organic growth. The AMC purchase now looks positively puny beside the group’s domestic Chinese exhibition circuit, Wanda Cinema Line, which although smaller, has a market capitalization of $19 billion.

Far be it from me to disagree with our staff, but I would hard-pressed to name 30 films from 2015 that I would consider among the “best” of the year.
The same can’t be said for film music, though. As predictable as each superhero template or franchise reboot may have been this year, composers keep finding new ways to reinvent the sounds of the cinema. Not to mention that the ever-widening landscape of VOD and streaming service-produced projects has increased the room with which artists can flex their musical chops.
2015 was an embarrassment of movie score riches. In indie horror gem Bone Tomahawk, Jeff Herriott & S. Craig Zahler inject hope and despair into a bleak, cannibal-stricken Wild West, where feeling anything is better than the unflinching mortality facing its characters. Patrick Doyle’s warmhearted Cinderella continued Disney’s tradition of attaching amazing scores to frivolous live-action do-overs, while on the other end of the spectrum, »
