Composer Marc Streitenfeld Is Arduous In His Search for the Lost Chord

20 May 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marc Streitenfeld — the composer of “Prometheus,” “American Gangster” and the upcoming “Poltergeist” — can trace his musical roots back to a 19th-century troubadour whose family was executed after he wrote a song mocking the emperor of Germany.

“Which is funny, you know?” he says, laughing in his spacious, comfortable Venice, Calif., studio just days after completing the mix for the “Poltergeist” soundtrack. “That’s the only family musical connection I can find.”

It must have been enough.

The 40-year-old German native has joined the ranks of billion-dollar composers with five films for director Ridley Scott, including “Gangster” and “Prometheus,” and four more for other directors including “The Grey,” “Killing Them Softly” and “After the Fall.” He’s now scoring the series “Hand of God” for Amazon.

It seems like a meteoric rise, considering he’s only been composing for nine years. But this ex-guitarist has been working in various capacities in »

'Tomorrowland' (2015) Movie Review

20 May 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm quite certain you could lop off the first 20-30 minutes of Tomorrowland and never notice. Then again, the same could probably be said for the final 80-90 minutes. There is little to no point to this movie other than to throw a plastic-wrapped vision of imagination and invention alongside a ham-fisted environmental message down our throats with all the subtlety of James Cameron's Avatar, but Cameron had the good sense to at least develop a story around his preaching whereas Tomorrowland beats around the bush until finally allowing Hugh Laurie to belt out his sermon before delivering the film's ultimate finale with a big dull thud. Director Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Ratatouille), who co-wrote the film's screenplay with Damon Lindelof ("Lost", Prometheus), spends nearly a quarter of the film's running time introducing us to the young inventor Frank Walker (Thomas Robinson). Frank has built a »

"Tomorrowland" Scribe Dismisses The Haters

20 May 2015 7:31 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Brad Bird's "Tomorrowland" has already screened for critics and has received decidedly mixed reviews so far. Criticisms have been targeted at the film's problematic structure with both beloved filmmaker Brad Bird and writer Damon Lindelof coming under fire.

Lindelof of course has become something of a whipping boy in the geek/fanboy community for his work on "Lost," "Prometheus" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" which themselves received mixed reviews and were criticised for their scripts. In a new interview with Vulture though, Lindelof effectively dismisses any criticism that has been or will be thrown at the film by geeks suggesting that they will enjoy it but won't be able to admit it in order to score brownie points with their peers:

"There's this great thing in all of us where we want to hope, we want to believe. But then what happens? We saw that hope with Obama's first election … and then, »

Tomorrowland's Damon Lindelof and George Clooney talk fanboy cynicism

This Friday sees the release of Brad Bird's Tomorrowland, which was also written with Damon Lindelof. The writer of Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus has had more than his fair share of criticism over the years and while Tomorrowland looks to focus on a great, big, beautiful tomorrow, Lindelof and George Clooney wouldn't be too surprised if audiences don't take to it. Damon Lindelof on fanboy cynicism: There's this great thing in all of us where we want to hope, we want to believe. »

George Miller wanted Heath Ledger for Mad Max: Fury Road, reveals title of next sequel

19 May 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Mad Max franchise returned to the big screen after a thirty year absence this past weekend with the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, marking the end of a fifteen year plus journey for director George Miller, who originally started developing the film back in the late 90s.

Having originally planned to shoot the film with Mel Gibson in 2003 before security concerns over its shoot in Namibia put the breaks on the project, Miller started giving consideration to recasting his franchise lead in 2006, and he’s revealed to The Daily Beast (via The Playlist) that he was actively pursuing the late Heath Ledger for the role.

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof talks Star Trek 3 plot and Idris Elba for villain role

19 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Trek 3 film.

Lindelof produced the first two films in the relaunched franchise, writing the second instalment, but working on Tomorrowland and his HBO TV show The Leftovers meant he had to step away from the third. In the interview, Lindelof talks about what he knows of Star Trek 3’s story so far:

“It’s really about the beginning of the five year mission. It’s establishing the crew after they’ve been out there and together for a while. But I don’t know anything about the plot.”

Which is…pretty much what everyone expected, seeing how Star Trek Into Darkness ends with »

Writer Damon Lindelof on his vision for the future in Tomorrowland

19 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

George Clooney is a former boy-genius in Disney’s Tomorrowland, opening in theatres this Friday.

The actor stars alongside Britt Robertson as they embark on an adventure into Tomorrowland, a world that exists somewhere within our collective memories, bridging time and space.  Co-starring Hugh Laurie, Tim McGraw, Keegan-Michael Key, Judy Greer, and Kathryn Hahn, the movie blends fantasy and sci-fi into a classic tale of adventure.

Directed by Brad Bird (Ratatouille), the fantasy film comes to us from the mind of Damon Lindelof, the former “Lost” writer who co-penned the Tomorrowland screenplay with Bird.  Lindelof is no stranger to the world of sci-fi having previously crafted the screenplays for World War Z, Prometheus, and Star Trek: Into Darkness, however, this is his first dive into more family-friendly fare. 

Cineplex caught up with Lindelof to talk about his vision of the future and how he views Tomorrowland.  Watch the interview »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof: Working on Star Wars would be “a dream come true”

19 May 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek 3 movies. Because they’re both pretty geeky (and one of them is best buds with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams).

While getting excited about the impending return of Luke, Leia and Han, Lindelof spoke about whether he would ever take on a Star Wars movie down the line:

“Obviously Star Wars really made me want to be a filmmaker, so the possibility that I could work on one of those films in the future would be truly a dream come true.”

Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus) has signed on to play the influential opera singer Maria Callas in a new romantic biopic entitled Callas, which is set to be directed by Niko Caro (Whale Rider, North Country) and will revolve around the passionate relationship she had with Aristotle Onassis over almost two decades.

“This movie is about an extraordinary woman whose deepest desire is to lead an ordinary life with the man of her choice,” said producer Guido De Angelis. “Callas was la Divina, a goddess, who just wanted to be a normal woman; she found out she couldn’t. It sounds like an ancient myth. Niki Caro immediately identified and superbly built into the script this epic, deeply emotional and dramatic quality of the story.
