rogue one clip

Thanks to all the trailers, clips, photos, and featurettes released so far, we know very well what Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will look like. But what will it sound like? We’d be excited to hear new Star Wars music under any circumstance, but we’ve been especially curious about Rogue One because it’s the very first Star Wars film not to be scored by John Williams. Instead, Michael Giacchino is stepping into that role — and he’s got a tough balance to strike, trying to meld the familiar and the new.

Obviously, we won’t know for sure how his efforts panned out until Rogue One opens next weekend. But we do have a little taste of his work to share today. The first two snippets of Giacchino’s Rogue One score have been released, and you can hear them below.  Read More »

Ben Affleck's Batman Movie Release Date

For awhile now, Warner Bros. Pictures has had their release slate for the DC Extended Universe locked down for the next few years with some minor changes here and tehre. However, there has been another change made to the schedule in order to accommodate a movie that wasn’t part of the original ambitious schedule for DC Comics movies down the pipeline.

Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all the way back in August of 2013, but it wasn’t until the following summer that we got word of Warner Bros. developing a new solo Batman movie. Since then the movie has grown to be quite an anticipated project with Ben Affleck working on the script with DC’s Geoff Johns as well as getting behind the camera as director.

Now we have an idea of when to expect Ben Affleck’s movie, reportedly titled The Batman, in theaters, because one of DC’s scheduled superhero movies is being pushed back for it. Find out more about Ben Affleck’s Batman movie release date below. Read More »

afi awards

We’re in awards season, which means it’s the time of year when critics’ groups praise their favorites, top 10 lists are published, and words like “overrated” and “underrated” become overused. Awards season can lead to healthy or unnecessarily heated debates among film fans online. The AFI Awards 2016 Official Selections may cause a disagreement or two, especially since they awarded Mel Gibson‘s Hacksaw Ridge and Clint Eastwood‘s Sully, but they’ve also selected other titles that do represent the best of 2016.

Below, see which movies the AFI Awards honored for the 17th year of voting.

westworld soundtrack

Westworld‘s first season ended on Sunday and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about that wild, weird, and mentally discombobulating 90-minute finale. No show since Game of Thrones has commanded so much of my attention and no series since Lost has seen my falling down so many rabbit holes of discussion. I’m not sure if I’m ready to call it the best show on television right now, but it is certainly the most show on television right now, jamming more ideas and concepts into single episodes than most series can manage in their entire runs. It’s something special.

And while we begin the long and agonizing wait for season two (which is looking to arrive in 2018 at the earliest), Ramin Djawadi‘s complete score for the first season, along with all of those piano covers of pop songs, has arrived online to stream and purchase.

James Franco in Alien Covenant

After launching the Planet of the Apes prequel franchise with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, renaissance man James Franco has joined another blockbuster prequel franchise.

Even though production on Alien: Covenant has been done for awhile, we’re just now learning that James Franco has a role in in the prequel sequel. That means we’re getting James Franco and Danny McBride in an Alien movie, and that’s just weird to think about.

Gareth Edwards Talks Rogue One Reshoots

With just one week until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters, we’ll finally get to see if all the fuss about reshoots on the first Star Wars spin-off paid off. Rumors circulated that a bunch of reshoots needed to be done in order to fix the movie, though damage control indicated that it wasn’t as big of a deal as early reports suggested.

In the end, if the movie ends up working, the reshoots won’t really matter, but director Gareth Edwards was recently asked about the extra shooting that needed to be done, and he explained exactly why they had to do so much extra work.
