Just last week, the final trailer for James Bond next’s mission, Spectre, arrived with a lot of action. It arrived not long after the film’s new theme song, “Writing’s on the Wall” by Sam Smith, debuted online. And now the film and the theme song meet in the Spectre theme music video.
While there are a lot of shots of Sam Smith singing while looking very sad and introspective, there’s some new footage from Spectre in the video as well, including some shots of James Bond (Daniel Craig) getting frisky with Monica Bellucci and also sharing a tender moment with Léa Seydoux.

The soundtrack for Guardians Of The Galaxy has been extremely popular. Featuring the songs present on Peter Quill’s mixtape in the film, the album was the second best-selling soundtrack album of 2014 (behind only Disney’s Frozen) topping the Billboard 200 chart for 11 consecutive week and 16 weeks in total.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Last fall, I shared a video of myself playing a looping cello version of “Time” from Hans Zimmer’s score for Inception. The response was amazing and I felt so encouraged that I actually went into a studio and recorded an entire EP of looping cello music (on sale today!).
To promote the EP, I wanted to create music videos for several tracks of the EP that were visually striking. So I teamed up with my partner-in-crime, dancer Danaë Montreuil again, and we went to Versatile Arts in Seattle to film a music video over the course of several hours using a lyra, or aerial hoop. The constantly-spinning lyra serves as a visual callback to the final moments of Inception, when Dom Cobb spins his totem and walks away before learning his fate.
I think Danaë was able to create something wonderful out of this project. Hit the jump to check out the video and learn more about how it was made.

Quentin Tarantino doesn’t commission original scores for his films. Instead, the writer/director collects a huge amount of music from other films and popular music to assemble idiosyncratic soundtracks that have become as integral to the identity of his films as are the scripts and casts.
Tarantino has drawn heavily on the music of Ennio Morricone for many years, using tracks from prior Morricone scores in Kill Bill, Death Proof, and Inglourious Basterds. Now, for The Hateful Eight, Morricone will compose the first full original score for a Tarantino film, which will also be the composer’s first western score in 40 years. Read More »
The film world is still reeling from news of a plane crash that appears to have taken the life of Oscar-winning composer James Horner. I say “appears” because Horner’s own attorney remains unable to confirm the composer’s death, more than twenty-four hours after the crash. A statement was released, however, saying “Although we are all awaiting official confirmation that our dear friend and client James Horner was in fact the pilot, we are shocked and deeply saddened to learn that his single-engine aircraft was involved in a fatal crash yesterday morning in northern Ventura County.” A confirmation seems like a formality at this point, given everything we do know.
Other filmmakers are speaking out about Horner’s passing and his influence. James Cameron‘s film Aliens led to Horner’s first Oscar nomination and also caused a rift between the two men that wasn’t healed for a decade. The two reunited to work on Titanic, which led to two Oscar wins for Horner, and they paired again another decade later for Avatar.
Now Cameron has released an extensive remembrance of James Horner, some of which you can read below. Read More »
