Just last week it was revealed that Alexandre Desplat, who was set to compose the score for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, had departed the project and was replaced by Michael Giacchino (STAR TREK BEYOND). The reason for Desplat's departure wound up being the ROGUE ONE reshoots which unfortunately pushed the scoring schedule back to the point where Desplat was no longer...

How Antoine Fuqua got Denzel Washington to saddle up for Magnificent Seven

I love a good western flick and one my my favourites, if not the favourite, is John Sturges' THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN. It's a simple story of good guys vs bad guys but the stellar cast of Yul Brynner , Steve McQueen , Charles Bronson ,  Horst Buchholz , James Coburn , Robert Vaughn , Brad Dexter and Eli Wallach turned it into something very special. Antoine Fuqua...

Dane DeHaan & Cara Delevingne talk Valerian and Rihanna (Comic Con 2016)

Out of all the movies presented at this year's Comic Con, the one that has surprised me the most is how terrific VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS looks.

Luc Besson's Valerian with Dane DeHaan footage reveal (Comic Con 2016)

Like many of you, I've been waiting for director Luc Besson to return to the sci-fi genre ever since THE FIFTH ELEMENT came out in 1997. Aside from LEON, Besson has take a bit of a backseat in the director's chair (although LUCY was a promising, yet weird effort) and strayed away from the cool, inventive, and wacky sci-fi action.
