The 10 Best Movie Scores of 2018, Ranked

The 10 Best Movie Scores of 2018, Ranked
The movie scores of 2018 have been as eclectic as the movies themselves, with any list of the year’s best forced to hop between the pep of “Paddington 2,” the swoons of “If Beale Street Could Talk,” the bloody tumult of “Mandy,” and the regal triumph of “Black Panther.” Yes, for the first time in forever, the score for a Marvel movie was worthy of being discussed alongside work from the likes of Jonny Greenwood and Justin Hurwitz. In fact, there was too much great work this year to celebrate all of it, especially in under-the-radar films like “Mary Shelley” (Amelia Warner), “Nostalgia” (Laurent Eyquem), and “Madeline’s Madeline” (Caroline Shaw). And while attention is too seldom paid to the original music in foreign films, the likes of “Burning” (Mowg) and “Capernaum” (Khaled Mouzanar) boasted indelibly evocative scores, as well.

2018 also featured a number of memorable soundtracks full of original

UK box office preview: 'Sorry To Bother You', 'Old Man And The Gun' headline quiet week

UK box office preview: 'Sorry To Bother You', 'Old Man And The Gun' headline quiet week
White Boy Rick also among new openers.

It is a weekend of scant new releases at the UK box office, with holdovers including Ralph Breaks The Internet and Creed II likely to dominate the chart.

Universal’s Sorry To Bother You is a new opener this weekend. The film, a satire on race and greed, premiered at Sundance this year to strong write-ups. Writer-director Boots Riley, making his feature debut, is a bigger name in the Us (where the film grossed $17.5m) than the UK, which could temper its box office prospects.

The Old Man & the Gun review – Robert Redford bows out in a feelgood crime caper

Redford’s swansong film, in which he plays an audacious real-life bank robber, makes light of the heists but offers a sad, sweet farewell performance

Robert Redford bows out of his extraordinary movie-acting career at the age of 82 with this homely, folksy, feelgood-bittersweet dramedy: a slightly gussied-up version of a startling true story. Forrest Tucker, played here by Redford, was a bank robber and serial prison-escaper who around the turn of this century hit the headlines as a dapper seventysomething by pulling off a series of bank heists, always impeccably courteous and well-dressed, flashing the gun inside his jacket to the astonished bank teller who would be almost hypnotised by his casual aplomb. Tucker would often be in the company of a couple of other old rascals: they became known to chortling TV newsreaders as the The Over-the-Hill Gang.

‘The Old Man & The Gun’ Dp Joe Anderson Gives Camera A “Twinkle In The Eye” For Memorable Robert Redford Tribute

‘The Old Man & The Gun’ Dp Joe Anderson Gives Camera A “Twinkle In The Eye” For Memorable Robert Redford Tribute
In his first film as David Lowery’s cinematographer, The Old Man & the Gun’s Joe Anderson got the opportunity to work with a legend—to celebrate a career’s worth of magnetic turns from the iconic Robert Redford, with images to mirror his signature charm.

Based on a New Yorker article by David Grann, and following up on the Sundance alum’s collaboration with Redford on Pete’s Dragon, the light and comedic crime drama casts Redford as Forrest Tucker, an infamously charming career criminal who pulled off a substantial list of heists and 18 prison escapes, continuing to pursue his passion for his very particular craft into his twilight years.

While Redford has suggested Old Man will be his last screen turn, Anderson and Lowery didn’t approach the project as such. “We just wanted to make a movie that people liked, with this star that they knew and loved.

The Old Man and The Gun Review

  • HeyUGuys
Announcing his retirement from acting earlier this summer, veteran Hollywood actor Robert Redford hinted that his latest film The Old Man and The Gun could well be his last big screen role in what has been a remarkably fruitful and hugely successful career, spanning decades and hundreds of iconic appearances on and off-screen.

Directed by David Lowery and based on David Grann’s New Yorker article of the same name, The Old Man and The Gun offers a slow-burning semi-comedic crime caper which pits octogenarian Redford against Casey Affleck in a story about a recidivist prison escape artist and the young police detective on his hot pursuit.

At the age of 70, career criminal Forrest Tucker (Redford) makes an audacious escape from San Quentin prison. Joined by long-time friends and partners in crime Teddy (Danny Glover) and Waller (Tom Waits), the trio go on to conduct an astonishing string of bank

Explorers Reboot TV Series from Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery Set for Paramount

Joseph Baxter Nov 6, 2018

Explorers, the 1985 sci-fi film, is getting adapted as a TV series for Paramount by the impressive duo of Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery.

Explorers arrived anemic on the box office scene back in 1985, manifesting as one of several contemporaneous wide-eyed optimistic sci-fi films with prodigious child actors, two of whom were Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix. However, as the 1980s continues to be mined for reboots, it was only a matter of time before the industry revisited Explorers. Indeed, that is now happening in the form of a Paramount TV series. Yet, the names attached to the project might just give knee-jerk skeptics something to ponder.

Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery have been tapped to develop a TV series adaptation of 1985’s Explorers for Paramount Television, reports Deadline. According to the trade, the duo will collaborate on a script and pen the show bible, and it is

‘Explorers’: Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery Working on TV Pilot Based on the Joe Dante Film

‘Explorers’: Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery Working on TV Pilot Based on the Joe Dante Film
Two of the busiest filmmakers working today just got a little bit busier: Cary Fukunaga and David Lowery are reportedly teaming to work on the pilot for a new adaptation of the Joe Dante film “Explorers.” The 1985 sci-fi feature was an early screen credit for both River Phoenix and Ethan Hawke, telling the story of a trio of friends who build a spaceship based on designs that one of them sees in a supernatural vision.

Deadline is reporting that the team will work on this new “Explorers” script, with one of the pair planning to direct the eventual pilot. “I’m a huge Joe Dante fan so just getting to play in his playground is really exciting,” Lowery told IndieWire. “There’s so much potential in the original concept. When Cary brought it up a few months back I was mostly just shocked it hadn’t already been done. It

David Lowery to Direct Former Terrence Malick Project ‘Green Knight’

There are few up-and-coming American directors that have a better handle on tone and mood than David Lowery, who has shown his range in Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story, Old Man & and the Gun, and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. With his lattermost break-out earning comparisons to Terrence Malick, it’s only fitting that for his next project, he’s taking on a film that was once developed by the Badlands director.

Following The Thin Red Line, Malick was looking to adapt the epic Middle English poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, which follows a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table who encounters a Godly mysterious warrior, the Green Knight. The warrior challenges him to strike him with his axe, but only if he accepts a return blow in a year and a day. When Gawain beheads the warrior, he magically is still alive and picks his head up,

London Film Festival: Robert Redford says farewell to acting with ‘The Old Man and the Gun’

London Film Festival: Robert Redford says farewell to acting with ‘The Old Man and the Gun’
Robert Redford could well win an Oscar for his final role on film in “The Old Man and the Gun,” which recently charmed audiences at the London Film Festival. Writer/director David Lowery tells a merry little story that moves along at a neat pace with an entirely relaxed approach that extends to the performances. Here’s the official synopsis of the Fox Searchlight Pictures movie: Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker and his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public.

In Redford’s swansong, his charm, charisma and likeability are used to full effect. This screen legend has only reaped one Oscar bid for acting: he lost in 1974 for his performance in the Best Picture champ “The Sting” to Jack Lemmon (“Save the Tiger”). He did win an Academy Award for directing the 1981 Best Picture “Ordinary People.
