For fans of David Fincher and/or Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl became a must-see the second it was announced. But for those still on the fence — or, alternately, for those who are so eager they just need something to tide them over until the movie actually opens — Fox has tons of new marketing material to share.
Among them are the first Gone Girl clip, four new Gone Girl TV spots, and the full streaming Gone Girl soundtrack. Bury yourself in Nick and Amy’s twisted world after the jump.

It was only a few years ago that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross began composing scores, but already they’ve come to feel like a staple of David Fincher‘s films. The dynamic duo are at it again this year with Gone Girl, and in keeping with the twisted feel of the movie the first track released from the Gone Girl soundtrack is eerie and kind of off-putting. In a good way.
Hit the jump for the Gone Girl soundtrack preview, plus a big gallery of new high-res pics from the thriller.

The films of Edgar Wright are known for their eclectic musical choices, but it’s the pop song choices that are typically revered. The scores are highly underrated, to the extent the score for Wright’s first film, Shaun of the Dead, has never been available anywhere in any format.
That changes this weekend at MondoCon in Austin, TX. Mondo will release the Shaun of the Dead score by Daniel Mudford & Pete Woodhead on vinyl as part of a carnival style, record-tossing booth. There are two editions, too, both with cover art by Jock.
But that’s not all. Previously announced, Mondo will release LPs of Nathan Johnson‘s score to Rian Johnson‘s Looper and Alex North‘s abandoned score for 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both have art by Jay Shaw.
Below, check out looks of all the LPs and read more information about them. Read More »

Nick Cave is a killer rock songwriter, and he and creative partner Warren Ellis have crafted a significant identity as a film scoring duo. Their music for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is among the great western film scores, and they’ve done excellent music for films such as The Proposition and Lawless. They scored the upcoming film Far From Men (trailer here).
Cave says that while he and Ellis love doing that work, they want to do even more, and in different genres. Specifically they want to do a horror film. Read his comments below and someone, please, call these guys to make it happen. Read More »

Movie heaven comes to Austin, Texas during the third week of September. Not only is that when Fantastic Fest is happening (much more on that in the coming days) but the fine folks at Mondo are simultaneously hosting their first convention, MondoCon. But no, this isn’t going to be just a place to buy posters. As discussed a few months back, MondoCon will be a gathering for everything a movie fan or collector could desire.
Mondo has just released the full programming line-up, as well as a few small glimpses at the goodies. Among the highlights? A mini-gallery exhibition of work based on The Iron Giant, including that film’s score available on vinyl. The lost score to 2001: A Space Odyssey will be on sale along with a panel discussion. A never-made 1983 U.S. Godzilla film will be revealed through storyboards and concept images. Plus a screening of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with live score, the world premiere of a documentary on the 2000AD comic brand and much more.
And that’s just part of it. Will there be posters? You bet. Lots of surprise posters along with the first Alex Ross Mondo poster. Will there be guests? Tons, including newly annoucned names like Bryan Lee O’Malley, JC Richard and William Stout.
The event takes place September 20-21 in Austin and tickets are still on sale. Below, read the full programming press release. Read More »

Ever since the release of the popular ’90s cartoon, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were characterized as party guys. They were a wild bunch of teenagers who loved pizza and music, who just happened to be both ninjas and turtles. In 1991, the group was forever linked to pop rap thanks to Vanilla Ice. At the climax of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, then super-popular rapper was featured with a song called “Ninja Rap.” Almost 25 years later, the song endures as a guilty pleasure and a window into a very specific moment in pop culture.
So it makes perfect sense (maybe? sort of?) that the filmmakers want their very own rap anthem for the new, rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That song is now out. It’s called “Shell Shocked” and its by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign featuring Kill The Noise & Madsonik. Does it reach the status of “Ninja Rap?” Listen to the new Ninja Turtles rap below.

In filmmaking, the score is almost always one of the last pieces of the puzzle. By the time a composer completes and records their score, the movie is almost always in the can. It just needs a tweak here or there before it’s done. That’s the usual order of things. For James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy though, things moved in a different order.
Gunn worked with composer Tyler Bates (300, Watchmen, Super) very early in the process so the actors could listen to the film’s eventual score during the creation of the movie’s most emotional moments and action scenes. The hope was hearing the film’s score so early in the process would let them better understand the film’s tone. Read the full quote below. Read More »
