What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 26 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!

Remember that new song that Linkin Park was working on for the soundtrack for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen? Well the song is now available on LinkinPark.com and Apple iTunes. Apparently the song has also been incorporated into part of the film’s score. It’s not bad, definitely not as horrible as Stan Bush’s remake of The Touch.
Stan Bush‘s 1986 song “The Touch” was featured in the soundtrack for Transformers: The Movie, and later became a cult hit among Transformers fans and 80′s pop culture fanatics. The song was also later covered by Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights. Bush has recorded a new version of the song, retitled “The Touch: Sam’s Theme”, for the upcoming release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Although, it’s not clear if the track is featured in the film itself.
You can listen to the new version embedded after the jump. I’ve also included the original cheesy 1980′s music video, which I much prefer (at least that version is so bad its good…).
Also, Linkin Park have released a teaser for their new song, “New Divide”, which is not only a track on the film’s soundtrack, but also part of the movie’s score. That video is also included after the jump.

If you’re a regular reader of /Film, then you know that we’re big fans of movie soundtracks and film scores (if you haven’t yet, listen to the bonus /Filmcast movie score episode). So I thought I’d fill you in on some of the latest cinematic music developments.
After the jump we’ll tell you about how Linkin Park is working on the score for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen with Hans Zimmer (who isn’t even the composer on the film!?), how the Twilight sequel New Moon scored the composer from Fincher’s Benjamin Button, how Jon Brion appears on screen but not behind the music in Apatow’s Funny People, and the just announced composers for Sherlock Holmes, Centurion and How To Train Your Dragon.
