The new independent thriller LUCKY BASTARD, co-written and executive produced by our own Lukas Kendall and directed by veteran Law & Order writer Robert Nathan, will open at the Los Feliz Theater next Friday, April 5th.


Monstrous Movie Music has announced four new CDs -- Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter's score for the 1959 thriller VIRGIN SACRIFICE; Shefter's score for the 1953 Lloyd Bridges Western THE TALL TEXAN; Paul Dunlap's music for the 1952 Western HELLGATE, also featuring the 27 minutes of music that survive from his score for the sci-fi adventure LOST CONTINENT (a film which MST3K fans remember as "Rock climbing"); and Nicholas Carras' score for SHE DEMONS, paired with Guenther Kauer's music for THE ASTOUNDING SHE-MONSTER.


Composer Clint Mansell will perform music from his scores such as Moon and Requiem for a Dream at L.A.'s Orpheum theater on Saturday, April 6th.


Perseverance is releasing a two-disc set of the Sherman Brothers' song score to CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG. It will feature the same contents as Kritzerland's out-of-print release.


Intrada plans to release two new score CDs next week.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN - Trevor Morris

"[Director Antoine] Fuqua’s widescreen approach -- which offers ample room for all that vidgame-quality CG -- relishes such cornball iconography, featuring shots of the American flag pierced with bullets, or tumbling slowly to the ground against a flame-red sunset, while Trevor Morris’ drum-corps score keeps things sounding duly martial."

Peter Debruge, Variety

"Nearly everything that happens in 'Olympus Has Fallen' is ludicrous, yet because the fate of the president and the nation hangs in the balance, the crisis is treated with the gravitas of Paul Scofield at the West End. The combination all but pumps laughing gas into the theater, as Trevor Morris' score pounds with percussion, director Antoine Fuqua cuts away to a fraying American flag, and a rogue North Korean ideologue drives the country to the brink of nuclear holocaust. The one and only consolation for audiences is that the end of the world would never, ever happen this way."

Scott Tobias, The Onion
