When Split arrived in 2016, audiences were blown away by one of M.Night Shyamalan‘s biggest surprise endings yet. The thriller starring James McCavoy as a kidnapper with dissociative identity disorder was revealed to exist within the same universe as Unbreakable, the gritty superhero drama starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson. Both of the movies came to a head last year in the questionable Glass, concluding what is known as the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. And now you can get the soundtracks to all three films on vinyl.

Earlier this morning, Disney and Lucasfilm kicked off Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you) by announcing that Taika Waititi will be co-writing and directing a new Star Wars movie. But let’s get down to what this day is really about: merchandising. After all, this is America, where people want to spend their hard-earned money on frivolous pop culture-related things. So we’re here to help. Below, you’ll find a list of Star Wars-centric artwork, ornaments, LEGO sets, and more – and some of it is only available today. Read More »

In honor of the anniversary, Mondo is giving the back-to-back Marvel Cinematic Universe sequels an incredible vinyl soundtrack with Alan Silvestri‘s scores spread across six total records matching the six different colors of the Infinity Stones.

If you’re ready to die historic on the fury road, Mondo has you covered.
Mad Max: Fury Road is a vibrant, masterfully shot action bonanza directed by George Miller. But a big part of what makes the movie ride so seamlessly through the desert is the incredible score from Junkie XL. It’s been available for purchase for a long time, including on vinyl, but for the film’s five-year anniversary, we’re finally getting a Mad Max: Fury Road Mondo vinyl soundtrack with a die-cut slipcover and artwork by Boneface featuring both Max Rockatansky and the horrifying Immortan Joe.

Boots Riley – the director of 2018’s sharp, funny, indie hit Sorry to Bother You – also serves as the frontman for a radical band called The Coup, a simmering blend of musical styles and revolutionary politics. That group has been releasing albums since the early 1990s, and they also provided the soundtrack for Riley’s movie. (Well, technically, they provided two soundtracks, but we’ll get to that in a minute.) Now the film’s soundtrack has been released on vinyl thanks to Mondo and Interscope Records, and you can learn more details below.

A couple of months ago, when we were putting together our “best of the decade” coverage at /Film.com, I not only put Whiplash on my list of 10 personal favorites of the past ten years, but I also highlighted the film’s climactic drum solo as one of the best movie moments of the entire decade. It’s a dynamic, cathartic, visceral piece of filmmaking from writer/director Damien Chazelle, but it also raises an interesting question: if the end result of immense suffering for your art is that you become a legend, is all of that suffering worthwhile?
Six years after the film’s initial release, Music.Film Recordings is releasing Whiplash: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Deluxe Edition, an album which contains not only composer Justin Hurwitz’s original music and classic jazz numbers, but a bunch of exciting contemporary remixes of those tracks and some unreleased material from the movie as well. /Film is happy to be premiering one of those remixes, Timo Garcia’s upbeat version of “Caravan,” and I had a chance to speak with Hurwitz about this new deluxe edition of the soundtrack, that big question posed at the end of the film, and much more. Listen to the track and read the full interview below. Read More »

As we continue to barrel through Peak TV and into a realm of Far Too Much TV, one thing has remained crystal clear: Michael Giacchino‘s score for the ABC drama Lost is the best television score of all time. I’m glad we all agree on this.
