  1. Singer's sex parties where he targeted underage men is awful. But the fact that he was AWOL on several movies in a row should have been warning to studio execs that he doesn't have his shit together. It's sad that it took until Bohemian Rhapsody and The Atlantic expose to show Singer's instability, both publically and personally.
  2. Singer wasn't in the mix for Dark Phoenix. Kinberg's involvement with the X-Men franchise grew after First Class. He and DP Newton Thomas Sigel would direct scenes for Days of Future Past and Apocalypse when Singer wouldn't come on set. (Singer's tendency to be AWOL on several films mystifies me. Any other director would've been booted and blacklisted for that behavior. Apart from his apparent sex scandals.)
  3. They've been apart for several years... and she's dating women now.
  4. Saw the movie... and Zimmer's score feels both tired and inappropriate. It feels like he phoned it in and no good riffs or motifs that you could latch onto like TASM2 or some of his Nolan work. The female vocals were interestingly utilized, nothing like Gladiator, but it just comes and goes. It's frustrating... and it makes me wary for Wonder Woman 1984. The movie itself wasn't that bad, but Simon Kinberg made a mistake getting Zimmer. If he wanted someone from the MV/RC family, Dominic Lewis, John Powell or Henry Jackman would've done better. I just think Zimmer is getting in a creative rut. He needs more projects and directors to inspire him to up his game.
  5. So apparently both Pattinson and Hoult screentested in a previous Batman costume (they didn't say which one, probably Batfleck's) -- and Pattinson's test clinched him the role. Apparently the smaller films that he did like High Life and Good Time is what drew Reeves to pursue him for the role.
  6. I know Williams alternates between London and Los Angeles for score recording, but has he recorded elsewhere other than special instances like Chicago (Lincoln) and Boston (Saving Private Ryan)? The only other country he's scored a film in was Canada for the choral sessions for Schindler's List.
  7. What also sets Tenet apart is that Lee Smith isn’t editing this either. A new composer and editor will probably be good for him.
  8. You know, you're probably right. Nolan likes to get the composer to write music before or during filming so he can temp track the cut and/or bounce ideas of what he wants, because the music is largely presented intact in the finished film and soundtrack releases. The only one where Nolan was enamored with temp track was The Dark Knight Rises, where it seems like Zimmer only wrote 15-20 minutes of original material and rearranged large chunks of pre-existing score.
  9. Nolan worked with Dody Dorn on Memento and Insomnia...
  10. His latest project has a title: Tenet. https://deadline.com/2019/05/christopher-nolan-tenet-movie-cast-release-date-1202620596/ Interesting that Zimmer isn't working on this, but Ludwig Goransson. That's a big step up.
  11. The Blue Bird This is a terrible film. Fox obviously made it quickly, adding Shirley Temple in the hopes of recapturing the Wizard of Oz magic, but it’s preachy, treacly and the third-to-last scene involving unborn children comes as a real WTF moment. The Technicolor photography looks dazzling and Alfred Newman’s score is pretty, but this is a dud.
  12. Alita: Battle Angel - Tom Holkenborg This... is pretty decent. I don't know if it's because he's utilized different orchestrators (like Conrad Pope) this time around, but there's subtlety and genuine emotion in cues like "With Me" and "What Did You Do?" He still brings out the trademark pounding percussion but he doesn't overdo it. There's genuine orchestral color and... God help me, actual thematic development in this score. Not to say Holkenborg became an amazing composer, but he should keep Pope around.
  13. They are, that's why they got Patty Jenkins, David F. Sandberg and Matt Reeves now.
  14. Pattinson is a tall and skinny guy, they're going to put him on a diet and exercise regime. He doesn't need to be super buff, but at least toned and look like he can take on several bad guys at once.
  15. About Pattinson being cast... I was kinda hostile when I heard the initial rumors about him, but Matt Reeves had to have seen something in him when he did the screen test. And he's co-starring in Christopher Nolan's next movie, so he's not an outlier. Plus the guy has been doing numerous niche indie films during and after he did the Twilight series. His performances in Good Time, The Rover, and High Life were actually good. And the backlash against his casting is EXACTLY the same that Michael Keaton, Heath Ledger, Gal Gadot, and Ben Affleck got when they were first cast. So I'm actually looking forward to seeing the first trailer.
