Before composer James Horner tragically passed away last summer, he was working on a gift for filmmaker Antoine Fuqua. Last year, Fuqua and Horner collaborated on the boxing drama, Southpaw, and the two had discussed reuniting for the upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven. Without seeing any footage — or really discussing the potential score with Fuqua, either — Horner went ahead and starting composing music for the film, much to Fuqua’s surprise. The composer’s generosity didn’t stop there, either, as he paid to put the score together himself and, according to Fuqua, he was the one that convinced him he had to make The Magnificent Seven.
Below, learn more about James Horner’s The Magnificent Seven score and how he encouraged The Equalizer director to move forward with the remake.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we delve deep into the furry community, try and find something uplifting over a woman dying from breast cancer, admire a girl who’s learning how to jab, hook, and shake, get some violent medical attention, and explore a world you can help make happen.

Not too long after Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit opened in theaters, Chris Pine confirmed that was his first and last time playing Tom Clancy’s hero. Since Kenneth Branagh’s film was the lowest grossing Jack Ryan picture to date, that news didn’t come as a shock to anyone. Shadow Recruit performed well overseas, but the thriller only made around $50 million in the states. The movie itself is a fine thriller, it just wasn’t exciting enough to leave audiences craving more adventures with Jack Ryan.
However, the character will soon return in an Amazon series. Last September, Amazon won the bidding war for the Jack Ryan show, and now they’ve found their star, John Krasinski (13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi).

The LEGO Technic line allows master builders to create working robots and other creations with moving parts, but now a custom LEGO Ideas project is hoping to bring a cinematic robot to life with building blocks, just without all the complicated moving parts.
Johnny Five is the lovable, curious robot from the ’80s classic Short Circuit. And while technology would certainly allow for someone to build their own Johnny Five pretty easily today, it would be much easier if you were able to build a LEGO Johnny Five. That’s what master builder PepaQuin is hoping happens with his custom creation, and the good news is this project is already on its way to hopefully becoming an official set. Check out the Short Circuit LEGO below! Read More »
We’re only a few short weeks away from seeing AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher. Any fan of the comic book series knows it’s been a long journey for this property. When Preacher was being developed as a film it attracted plenty of talent, but even a director as capable as Sam Mendes couldn’t crack the story. Mendes, however, predicted the story would play better as a television series and that “someone will come along that has a really good take on it and is able to do it.” If the early reviews for the AMC series are any indication, the Road to Perdition director was correct.
Below, watch the latest Preacher teaser trailer.
