Danny Elfman Concert

If you’re a huge fan of filmmaker Tim Burton and his collaborations with brilliant composer Danny Elfman, then sometime over the past couple of years you might have been able to catch the special concert running through a wonderful collection of music from their work together. But if you weren’t able to attend this incredible event, you can still watch it right now.

A recent episode of PBS series Live from Lincoln Center broadcast a nearly two-hour cut of the concert which features selections from Batman, Beetlejuice, Alice in Wonderland, Big Fish, Edward Scissorhands and more. But the real treat is the segment for The Nightmare Before Christmas which has Danny Elfman singing a few signature Jack Skellington songs, just as he did for the soundtrack. Read More »

Seth Rogen

If you grew up in the ’90s, you grew up listening to Alan Menken‘s work. The composer was behind some of the biggest hits of the Disney Renaissance era, including The Little MermaidBeauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, as well as non-animated classics like Little Shop of Horrors and Newsies. But the kids of the ’90s have now grown up to become foul-mouthed adults, and Menken has evolved along with them.

One of Menken’s latest projects is Sausage Party, Seth Rogen‘s R-rated animated comedy. Rogen recently shared a photo from their collaboration to give us just a tiny idea of what this completely bizarre-sounding feature has in store for us. Check it out after the jump.  Read More »

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.
