Twilight getting a film-concert tour

The Twilight saga will be back, this time as a live concert that will tour the world. The hit movie franchise, based on Stephenie Meyer's book series, is getting a film-concert tour just like Lionsgate properties The Hunger Games and La La Land, reports variety.com. Lionsgate is launching the "Twilight in Concert" world tour in August in Brazil, followed by stops in Australia and the UK.

The event will feature a full orchestra performing Carter Burwell's original film score timed to a screening of Twilight, the 2008 romantic fantasy that launched the highly successful five film franchise that hauled $3.3 billion worldwide.

Twilight is the third Lionsgate movie to receive a concert tour following "The Hunger Games in Concert" and "La La Land in Concert". Those tours have accounted for more than 100 performances in 25 countries to date.

Twilight Movie Live Concert Tour Will Kick Off This Summer

Twilight Movie Live Concert Tour Will Kick Off This Summer
Bella and Edward are returning this summer for a Twilight tour, complete with a live orchestra. Lionsgate has announced a live concert tour for the 2008 movie, which is based on the highly successful novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer. It's been more than a decade since the movie was originally released and, since it doesn't look like they're going to be able to milk any additional entries out of the franchise, this is yet another way for them to milk a little more cash out of that particular cow.

Twilight In Concert is set to kick off this August, starting with dates in Brazil. The event is also set to make its way to the U.K. and Australia. There's no word yet on when or where the tour will stop off in North America, though it seems like an inevitability, assuming things go well with this first round of shows.

Listen to an Exclusive Clip from Carter Burwell’s ‘Missing Link’ Score

We here at Collider are happy to exclusively debut a clip from Carter Burwell’s score for the stop-motion animated action-adventure film Missing Link.

Film Review: ‘The Sound of Silence’

  • Variety
They call New York the city that never sleeps, but Peter Lucian thinks he has the solution for the Big Apple’s many insomniacs. In “The Sound of Silence,” Peter — who is not a scientist, but a made-up specialist called a “house tuner” — believes that noises are to blame for the stress and anxiety that his customers feel. And so, like some kind of feng shui expert for sound, this sullen loner visits the apartments of assorted stressballs in an attempt to diagnose why their acoustics are out of whack.

Maybe it’s an ultrasonic frequency coming from the refrigerator that’s interfering with his clients’ sleep, or else the way the floorboards squeak, or the toaster. Director Michael Tyburski, who co-wrote the script with Ben Nabors, is right to recognize how sound plays a role in people’s well-being, but it’s downright weird to conceive a character who

Exclusive Interview – Composer Piers Burbrook de Vere talks Little Monsters and the Australian music industry

Red Stewart chats with Piers Burbook de Vere about Little Monsters….

Piers Burbook de Vere is an Australian composer who has been working in the film and television industries since the mid-2000s. He is best known for his compositions for projects like I Rock, Down Under, and the Sundance film Little Monsters, which Flickering Myth had the chance to interview him about, and I in turn had the honor to conduct:

Thank you for taking the time to speak with me. I know how busy you’ve become these days, so thank you for finding time.

No worries.

What’s the composing industry like in Australia? Is it something that’s still burgeoning?

I think Australia has a number of really talented composers. Often, those guys and girls tend to go off-shore, like many of our talented actors do to seek more opportunities. There’s definitely a community of extremely talented composers in Australia,

‘Mowgli,’ ‘Buster Scruggs’ and Beyond: Streaming Cinema Is Enlisting A-List Composers

  • Variety
The debate rages on over whether a Netflix movie is legitimate, bona fide cinema, as the streaming behemoth has somewhat reluctantly joined Amazon Studios in giving its award-hungry offerings at least a limited theatrical run. But good old-fashioned talent makes contrasting the streamers with their Old Hollywood rivals a moot point. And, along with star-studded casts and esteemed directors, many of this season’s Netflix and Amazon original films were soundtracked by prestige composers.

Roma” had no original music, but Netflix scored a coup with “The Other Side of the Wind,” the belatedly released Orson Welles film that features a new score by three-time Oscar winner Michel Legrand. Meanwhile, Amazon nabbed not one but two Radiohead members for its original features this year: Jonny Greenwood for “You Were Never Really Here” and Thom Yorke for “Suspiria.”

Netflix’s “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” is the latest in a 35-year collaboration

The Best Scores and Soundtracks of 2018

As Martin Scorsese once said, “Music and cinema fit together naturally. Because there’s a kind of intrinsic musicality to the way moving images work when they’re put together. It’s been said that cinema and music are very close as art forms, and I think that’s true.” Indeed, the right piece of music–whether it’s an original score or a carefully selected song–can do wonders for a sequence, and today we’re looking at the 25 films that best expressed this notion this year.

From seasoned composers to accomplished musicians, as well as a smattering of soundtracks, each musical example perfectly transported us to the world of the film. Check out our rundown of the top 25, which includes streams to each soundtrack in full where available.

The Coen Brothers are no strangers to the western genre, but “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” marks their first film for Netflix. The anthology feature comprises six different stories about life on the frontier. Will it return the filmmakers to the Oscar race? Gold Derby recently spoke with stars Tim Blake Nelson and Zoe Kazan, costume designer Mary Zophres, and composer Carter Burwell about their work on the film.

Nelson plays the title character, a cheerful singing cowboy who is surprisingly quick on the trigger. Even though he leaves many bodies in his wake, the actor doesn’t see his character as a villain. “As an actor, you learn early on that you’ve got to advocate for your character,” he explains. “Mostly that means figuring out how your character

Oscars: Europe Loses Ground and 6 Other Lessons We Learned From This Year’s Short Lists

  • The Wrap
For first time, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences didn’t dole out its Oscars short lists one category at a time this year. Instead, it released them in one fell swoop on Dec. 17, singling out 101 films that will move to a second round of voting in nine categories.

When the dust had cleared, here’s what we had learned.

1. Europe lost its stranglehold on the foreign-language category. With four films from Asia, three from Europe, one from North America and one from South America, this is the first year since the Oscars foreign short list began in 2006 that a continent other than Europe has placed the most films on the list.

And after being called out for consistently failing to recognize films from East Asia (including by TheWrap), the Academy put Japan’s “Shoplifters” on the list and, crucially, gave South Korea its first-ever spot on the short list for “Burning.

Oscar Music Shortlists Arrive, Pitting Thom Yorke Against Gaga and Dolly, With Double Shots for ‘Mary Poppins’ Tunes
The Academy music branch returned to the “shortlist” concept for the first time in nearly 40 years, and for the most part, it seems to have worked. The 15 scores and 15 songs chosen by the composers, songwriters and music editors — from which the final five in each category will be selected — in large part align with the choices of most observers and pundits.

The preliminary songs list allows for an eclectic assortment of singer-songwriters from the pop, rock, country, R&B and hip-hop worlds, including Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Dolly Parton and Troye Sivan — all of whom were already nominated for a Golden Globe this month — along with Thom Yorke, Sade, Gillian Welch and the Coup.

In the score category, all five Golden Globe nominees were cited among the top 15: Ludwig Goransson for “Black Panther,” Marco Beltrami for “A Quiet Place,” two-time Oscar winner Alexandre Desplat for “Isle of Dogs,” Marc Shaiman

‘Black Panther,’ ‘Ballad of Buster Scruggs’ Lead Oscar Song, Score Shortlists
“A Star Is Born,” “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Black Panther” and “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” are among the films that remain in the running in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Best Original Song and Best Original Score categories, which revealed their shortlists on Monday.

In the Original Song category, where “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” is the presumed frontrunner, other songs on the 15-film shortlist include Kendrick Lamar’s “All the Stars” from “Black Panther,” Dolly Parton’s “Girl in the Movies” from “Dumplin’,” Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings’ “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” and two Marc Shaiman/Scott Wittman songs from “Mary Poppins Returns,” “The Place Where Lost Things Go” and “Trip a Little Light Fantastic.”

Other song contenders include Diane Warren for “I’ll Fight” from “Rbg,” Boots Riley’s “Oyahytt” from “Sorry to Bother You,

Composer Carter Burwell Captures Hopes, Dreams & Bleakness Of Old West For ‘The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs’ — Exclusive Video

  • Deadline
Composer Carter Burwell Captures Hopes, Dreams & Bleakness Of Old West For ‘The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs’ — Exclusive Video
Exclusive: Going into The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, the Coen brothers’ latest, Oscar-nominated composer Carter Burwell knew their sensibilities and working methods well, as he notes in the video above. At this point, Burwell had worked with the legendary directors on 16 films, dating back to Blood Simple in 1984. What the composer was surprised by, when it came to their latest outing, was its structure, which affected the way both story and music would unfold. The product of many years of writing and contemplation, the Coen brothers’ latest is an anthology film comprised of six distinct stories—each, with its own characters and thematic concerns—that together, present an altogether distinctive take on life in the Old West.

After many years of collaboration, Burwell has come to be involved with the Coens’ films well ahead of production, offering input and insights that can affect the shaping of a film, all the way through the final cut.

The 12 Most Memorable Coen Brothers Characters

Joel and Ethan Coen are my favorite filmmakers, and part of the reason why is how they come up with such stark, striking characters who hit to the heart of their films’ themes while never standing in as simple symbols or archetypes. These are characters who manage to break out even when they’re part of a milieu that’s as immaculately crafted as a Coen Brothers’ movie (and that’s saying something since the Coens tend to work almost exclusively with the likes of cinematographer Roger Deakins and composer Carter Burwell). The Coens and their immensely talented actors have …

Carter Burwell Goes West for ‘Buster Scruggs’ Score

  • Variety
Carter Burwell Goes West for ‘Buster Scruggs’ Score
Two-time Oscar nominee Carter Burwell has penned music for the films of Joel and Ethan Coen for more than 30 years, including such classics as “Fargo” and “The Big Lebowski.” But “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” was unique: a six-part Western with stories ranging from comic to bleak. As Joel Coen told him, the single thread that bound all six together was that they all involved “non-accidental death.”

“Each of the films is so different in tone and characters and story that I couldn’t find a musical solution that would work for all of them,” Burwell concedes. Ultimately, he decided to bookend the film with versions of the old cowboy song “Streets of Laredo,” and there are guitars, harmonica and tack piano sprinkled throughout.

But, he adds, “We needed a big, traditional Western sound” for four of the six segments, which needed “a Dimitri Tiomkin sense of scale,” referring to
