When synth retro is all the rage in today’s scoring scene with the likes of STRANGER THINGS and IT FOLLOWS, Paul Haslinger can count himself as one of the O.G. genre gangsters whose exciting music for creatures, gunplay and kick-ass heroes has never stopped mutating. An Austrian bandmate in the seminal progressive synth-rock group Tangerine Dream during such seminal soundtrack likes as NEAR DARK and MIRACLE MILE, Haslinger immigrated to Hollywood with a prolifically successful scoring career. He’d venture from the cool, teen-centric electronic grooves of such scores as CHEATERS, CRAZY / BEAUTIFUL and BLUE CRUSH to a career-making partnership with the vampiric Lycan slayer Selene on […]Read On »

One of the great things about the RESIDENT EVIL franchise according to star Milla Jovovich is that writer/producer/occasional director (and her husband) Paul W.S.

It’s scheduled when inspiration comes – that’s what keeps it fresh.” It also helps the same creative team has been in place for five films, including the forthcoming RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION. “This is rare […]Read On »

Whether you’re a composer doing a new take on pirates from the Caribbean or England’s most famous detective, it seems impossible now to play it straight for movies determined to hip up the look, and sound of historically iconic characters. Hence, a plethora of soundtracks that apply the incongruities of electric guitar-topped orchestras and satirical ethnic stylings to accompany multiplex costume spectaculars. So make no mistake that Paul Haslinger’s latest iteration of Alexandre Dumas’ swashbucklers is going to give you the gloriously traditional symphonic strains that Herbert Stothart applied to the 1948 version of THE THREE MUSKETEERS, let alone the […]Read On »

During the press event for THREE MUSKETEERS during WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco, Logan Lerman, who plays D’Artagnan in the film, has been asked numerous times what will differentiate this version from the others that have come out over the years. “It is more contemporary, it is the untold chapter,” Lerman says. “They are looked at as the navy seals or the James Bond of the time. They have all sorts of gadgets and gizmos that have never been seen before in any version.” Lerman also notes that in addition to the gadgets and such, a number of futuristic vehicles […]Read On »
