Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Music Video

When the news came that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be arriving on home video this month, director James Gunn teased one wild special feature the likes of which had never been seen on any Marvel Studios movie before. That special feature has now arrived in its entirety online.

James Gunn created a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 music video inspired by the original disco song “Guardians Inferno” by a group called The Sneepers, featuring none other than Star-Lord’s fictional father David Hasselhoff. This is a full fledged retro music video created in the same style as real hit disco songs from the 1970s, and it’s so weird and glorious. Watch it below! Read More »

Lin Manuel Miranda to Score The Little Mermaid Remake With Alan Menken

Lin-Manuel Miranda continues his streak as Disney’s darling, first jumping on the House of Mouse’s ship to co-write the songs to 2016’s animated Polynesian-set adventure, Moana. He then was announced as the co-lead of Mary Poppins Returns, the new sequel with Emily Blunt to the musical classic that originally starred Julie Andrews.

Now, Miranda is signing on to score the live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid with one of his idols, and the original composer of the 1989 animated classic, Alan Menken.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Baby Driver Soundtrack Collaboration

This summer, we’ve gotten two movies where the soundtrack is not just another element that adds style to the motion picture but is also an integral piece of the narrative that unfolds. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 followed in the footsteps of its predecessor by having a mixtape soundtrack that fueled the story in the Marvel Studios sequel and the entirety of Baby Driver played out to the rhythm and sound of the music playing in the man character’s iPod earbuds. With both soundtracks reaching back into decades passed, how was there no overlap between them?

It turns out there was some careful planning behind the scenes to ensure that neither movie was infringing upon the other’s musical territory. Find out more about the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Baby Driver soundtrack collaboration. Read More »

Dunkirk score

Christopher Nolan‘s highly-anticipated Dunkirk apparently isn’t a war movie, but it shares at least one thing in common with Matt Reeves‘ War For the Planet of the Apes: they both have songs from their soundtracks available to listen to right now.

Ready Player One movie

With the exception of The Color Purple and Bridge of Spies, composer John Williams has been responsible for scoring every single feature film that Steven Spielberg has directed. However, we’ll be adding one more movie to that list in the near future.

Though John Williams was previously attached to provide the score for Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s sci-fi adventure Ready Player One, he will now be replaced by Back to the Future composer Alan Silvestri. But don’t worry, we’ll still be getting a new score from John Williams on another Steven Spielberg movie before Ready Player One even hits theaters. Read More »

Spider-Man Homecoming Score

This year we’re getting three new scores from composer Michael Giacchino. You can hear one of them in theaters this weekend with the arrival of Colin Trevorrow’s The Book of Henry, which isn’t getting very good reviews. But the next one will arrive in theaters early next month.

Spider-Man: Homecoming features a score from Michael Giacchino, complete with all of his punny track titles on the soundtrack. For those interested, the full tracklist has been released, and it doesn’t include any major spoilers for those worried about that kind of thing. Furthermore, the full Spider-Man: Homecoming suite is available for your listening pleasure, giving us a preview of some of the orchestral themes we’ll hear throughout the film.

Justice LeagueJustice League - Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman

Elfman returns…to superhero movies.

Danny Elfman, the composer for classic superhero movies like Tim Burton’s Batman and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, has signed on to score Justice League. This may throw a wrench in Elfman’s recently announced plans to score smaller films for $1 — I’m pretty sure Warner Bros. will pay him a little bit more than that, at least.

Mondo Edge of Tomorrow Vinyl

Mondo previously gave the Tom Cruise led sci-fi flick Oblivion a special vinyl soundtrack, because M83’s score for the film was one of the best of the past decade, along with Daft Punk’s score for TRON Legacy.

Edge of Tomorrow, or Live. Die. Repeat. as it came to be known on home video, is getting a collectible vinyl soundtrack release today, and it’ll make a great addition to your vinyl collection, especially if you love colored vinyl. Read More »

Stranger Things Soundtrack Cassette

You may not have realized it, but the music format of cassette tapes is making a comeback in a big way, much in the same way that vinyl records have become popular again. Nielsen reported that last year, cassette sales rose 74 percent, to 129,000 units, which isn’t anywhere near the 13.1 million units that vinyl is selling, or the 105 million units that CDs are still inexplicably selling. But cassettes are back in a surprising way, and one of the most nostalgic shows in recent memory is going to take advantage of that.

Stranger Things has an amazing, pulsating, 1980s synth soundtrack. The opening theme itself makes people not want to fast forward through the opening credits of the show, something that is rare in this day an age. The soundtrack has been available to download, on CD and on vinyl, but it’s never been on cassette…until now.
