Director Ruben Fleischer may have come from the music video and commercials world, but his directorial debut ZOMBIELAND proved he could handle great storytelling, absurd humor on top of some highly stylized visual filmmaking techniques. With the critical and commercial success of ZOMBIELAND, Fleischer was looking for something a little more low-key for his follow-up which he discovered with the comedy 30 MINUTES OR LESS. The story follows a pizza delivery guy (ZOMBIELAND star Jesse Eisenberg) who has a bomb strapped to his body by a couple of thugs who give him a short window to rob a bank or …Read On »

CD Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2 soundtrack

Alexandre Desplat is back in the HARRY house to weave his musical spell with HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 2. But if things seemed more than a bit wispy and time-biding after the last two POTTERS, nothing will prepare you for this literally smashing wrap up, especially with a spectacular musical finish that brings John Williams’ spirit back to the Halls of Hogwarts like never before. Having impressed with the epic franchise fantasy scores for THE GOLDEN COMPASS and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, Desplat thankfully raises the scoring stakes with his second POTTER big time, his brew …Read On »

On the set with the FINAL DESTINATION 5 actors Emma Bell and Nicholas D’Agosto – Part 3

Death is nowhere to be seen on the set of FINAL DESTINATION on this chilly December afternoon. In fact, Death is perhaps the cheapest actor working on the long-running franchise, that’s because Death is an unseen force – manipulating the kills in very complex and clever ways, but never showing his (her, its) face. Of course every actor working on this latest installment (once again filmed in 3-D and hitting theaters nationwide tomorrow) is excited by what kind of horribly, gruesome ways Death has engineered for them to die on screen. For Emma Bell and Nicholas D’Agosto, they reveal that …Read On »

On a cold December afternoon in Vancouver, Canada, production on FINAL DESTINATION 5 (which opens nationwide on Friday) is only a few days away as the filmmakers are busy picking up all the filmic pieces for the film’s stunning major opening set piece. Whereas other FINAL DESTINATION movies have used planes, speedways, roller coasters and the highway as the major threat source, this time out a suspension bridge provides the opening scene mechanism that sets the film’s game play into motion. While production has already shot the real-life pieces of this major puzzle on Vancouver’s Lions Gate Bridge, now it’s …Read On »

It’s an overcast day in Vancouver, Canada as ASSIGNMENT X visits the set of FINAL DESTINATION 5 – the latest chapter in the successful horror franchise that seems to top itself each time out (the film opens nationwide on Friday). The December Vancouver haze, certainly adds to the flavor of visiting the set which this time uses a suspension bridge as the catalyst for Death to start picking off victims one by one. The plot mechanisms are key to each FINAL DESTINATION films (the first one was an airplane crash, the second a freeway pile-up, the third a roller coaster …Read On »

First, Warner Bros. released an image of Henry Cavill as Superman in the MAN OF STEEL reboot, and now they’ve done it again with this first look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in the Christopher Nolan directed THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Yes, there’s not much going on here (and there’s no way this is the final Cat-suit), but at least it’s a nice taste of what to expect from the third and final chapter in Nolan’s BATMAN trilogy.

First Look Image of Henry Cavill as Superman in MAN OF STEEL

With Zack Snyder directing and Christopher Nolan producing, excitement for the new Superman movie reboot MAN OF STEEL couldn’t be higher. Then, Warner Bros. sneaks this first look of actor Henry Cavill as Superman, and well, it’s pretty freakin’ cool. The ghost of Christopher Reeve and near lookalike Brandon Routh is giving way for a more modern caped crusader. The movie opens June 14, 2013 – so we have a long time to wait before fanboy nirvana (or exhaustion hits), but for now, nicely done.   AGREE? DISAGREE? LET US KNOW HOW YOU FEEL – COMMENT BELOW!

20TH Century Fox held the Los Angeles Premiere of RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES on July 28th at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Fans lined the street, which was not closed off. So when the stars walked across the street to sign autographs they had to stop the traffic. The fans screamed very loudly for James Franco, Tom Felton and Rupert Grint. In the film, a single act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a war unlike any other, and to the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. The CGI ape is from the Oscar-winning …Read On »

Interview: CAPTAIN AMERICA composer Alan Silvestri throws his mighty shield

CAPTAIN AMERICA soundtrack | ©2011 Walt Disney Records

When it comes to the sound of military heroism, few of today’s movie composers can signal an old-school orchestral brass salute like Alan Silvestri. From bombastically playing the dark march of Stallone’s JUDGE DREDD to capturing the steely commando skills of Schwarzenegger in ERASER and PREDATOR, this one-time synthesist for the easygoing motorcycle cops of CHiPS has become the go-to composer for the epic sound of super soldiers, most recently with the wisecracking adventure of THE A-TEAM and the techno-symphonic gadgets wielded by the G.I. JOE squadron. For a composer who always brings out the big thematic guns in the …Read On »
