The power and beauty of music is universal. It has the ability to make the images on the big-screen come alive for us in all their vivid glory. Transporting us to other worlds and to the root of the emotion being created, a good film score or song can solidify its place in our hearts and minds forever.
Two big composer announcements were made today for two upcoming films. The first announcement, which personally fills my own heart with delight, stated that musical geniuses Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are set to compose David Fincher's "Gone Girl". The film stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike and is based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel.
The musical duo scored Fincher's "The Social Network", which still remains one of the most celebrated soundtracks in many years. Fincher's brilliantly unique and bold style matched with the duos impeccable ability to evoke emotion through music, has proven to be one of my favorite collaborations in film.
Danny Elfman is the second big-time composer locked for the next film, "50 Shades of Grey". Also based on the popular book series often coined as "mommy porn", Sam Taylor-Johnson is helming the steamy adaptation. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan star in the film and locking Elfman for a controversial picture like this is certainly a smart move.
