Music in Film: The Impossible and Life of Pi

Who knew that a giant tsunami and being shipwrecked with a tiger would inspire such great music? Given that the world is supposed to be ending on Friday, now seemed like an interesting time to look at survival epics.
So this entry of Spotlight on Scores will analyze two scores that made me want to quit life but gave me hope to carry on as well, The Impossible and Life of Pi. As usual, the links to Youtube playlists, iTunes and Amazon are provided. Let’s take a closer look!

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part II trailer with The Hunger Games

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: Yes, as expected by everyone and their cat, Lionsgate will indeed unleash the first trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part II two weeks from tomorrow, attached exclusively to prints of The Hunger Games. It’s an obvious move, using one massively popular franchise to prop up a new franchise that shares at least some core demographics. But what is most heartening about the move is that Lionsgate will in fact be keeping the trailer offline that entire opening weekend. That’s right, Twi-hards, there may be crummy YouTube bootlegs popping up online on Friday morning, but if you want to see a quality copy before Monday, March 26th (at 3:00am PST… really guys?), you actually have to buy a ticket to The Hunger Games over its opening weekend. What a novel concept!
It seems like a pretty obvious concept, actually debuting big movie trailers in theaters, preferably attached to new movies that share audience demographics (and theoretically giving the new movie a small boost over opening weekend). But, with the exception of Warner Bros’ advertising with the last two Batman pictures, no other studio seems to have the good sense to do this. As you of course recall, Warner Bros. kept official versions of most of the various Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises teasers and trailers offline during the opening weekend of the Warner Bros films they were attached to. If you wanted to see the first teaser for The Dark Knight Rises, you had to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II in theaters over its opening weekend. Ditto for The Dark Knight, which debuted its first trailer with I Am Legend. Eleven years ago, New Line Cinema famously debuted the first teaser for the Lord of the Rings trilogy with prints of Thirteen Days. We can debate whether the Cuban Missile Crisis drama got a boost, but I distinctly remember seeing signs at my theater warning patrons that they could not buy a ticket to Thirteen Days and then get a refund after the Lord of the Rings teaser played.
You’d think that more studios would do this, exclusively attaching anticipated trailers to their own films and using that exclusivity as a carrot to get fans into theaters on opening weekend. You’d think Disney would have had the [...]

HollywoodNews.com: Our selected celebrity for the “2011 Hollywood Celebrity of the Year” is Justin Bieber.

Photos by PRPhotos
Justin Drew Bieber (play /ˈbiːbər/ bee-bər, born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian pop/R&B singer, songwriter and actor. Bieber was discovered in 2008 by Scooter Braun, who came across Bieber’s videos on YouTube and later became his manager. Braun arranged for him to meet with Usher in Atlanta, Georgia, and Bieber was soon signed to Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG), a joint venture between Braun and Usher, and then to a recording contract with Island Records offered by L.A. Reid. Bieber’s debut single, “One Time”, was released in 2009 and peaked in the top ten in Canada and charted in the top thirty in several international markets. His debut album, My World, followed in November 2009, and was later certified platinum in the United States. He became the first artist to have seven songs from a debut album chart on the Billboard Hot 100.
Bieber’s first full studio release, My World 2.0, was released in March 2010 and debuted at number one and within the top ten of several countries, and was certified platinum in the United States. It was preceded by the worldwide top-ten single, “Baby”. The music video of “Baby” is currently ranked as the most viewed and most discussed YouTube video. Bieber followed-up the release of his debut album with his first headlining tour, the My World Tour, the remix albums My Worlds Acoustic and Never Say Never – The Remixes, and the 3D biopic-concert film Justin Bieber: Never Say Never – which had an opening weekend gross that nearly matched the record for the biggest opening weekend for a concert-film. Bieber released his second studio album, Under the Mistletoe in November 2011, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Bieber has received numerous awards, including Artist of the Year at the 2010 American Music Awards — and has been nominated for numerous awards, including Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards.

Ryan Thomas Gosling (born November 12, 1980) is a Canadian actor and musician. He first came to public attention as a child star on the Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club (1993–95) and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark? (1995), Goosebumps (1996), Breaker High (1997–98) and Young Hercules (1998–99). His first serious role was as a Jewish neo-Nazi in The Believer (2001), and he then built a reputation for playing misfits in independent films such as Murder by Numbers (2002), The Slaughter Rule (2002), The United States of Leland (2003) and Stay (2005).
Gosling came to the attention of a wider audience in 2004 with a leading role in the romantic drama The Notebook, for which he won four Teen Choice Awards and an MTV Movie Award. His performance as a drug-addicted teacher in Half Nelson (2006) was nominated for an Academy Award and his performance as a socially inept loner in Lars and the Real Girl (2007) was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. In 2007, he starred in the courtroom thriller Fracture.

After a three-year acting hiatus, Gosling starred in both Blue Valentine and All Good Things in 2010. The former performance as a frazzled husband earned him a second Golden Globe nomination. 2011 proved to be a landmark year for the actor as he appeared in three mainstream films – the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, the thriller Drive and the political drama The Ides of March – and received two Golden Globe nominations.
He is due to appear in five upcoming films: the period crime feature Gangster Squad, the generational drama The Place Beyond the Pines, the revenge drama Only God Forgives, Terrence Malick’s Lawless, and a remake of the sci-fi film Logan’s Run.
Gosling’s band, Dead Man’s Bones, released their self-titled debut album and toured North America in 2009. He is a co-owner of Tagine, a Moroccan restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. He is a supporter of both PETA and the Enough Project and has travelled to Darfur, Uganda and eastern Congo to raise awareness about conflicts in the region. He has had relationships with actors Sandra Bullock (2002–03) and Rachel McAdams (2005–08) and lives in New York City.
