Despite having scored some low-rent television series and films in the early 2000s, composer Tyler Bates’ career didn’t really kick into high gear until he hooked up with “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder. Bates has scored four of the director’s films, including: “300,” “Watchmen,” and “Sucker Punch” -- and now he’s constantly sought out by other high-profile genre directors like Rob Zombie and James Gunn. While his previous collaborations with Snyder have yielded lavish physical releases -- including vinyl pressings -- their first film together, the surprisingly good “Dawn of the Dead” remake, hasn’t had any type of release until now.

Surprises have been popping up all over the 50th annual New York Film Festival. Perhaps because it's celebrating an important semi-centennial milestone and its beloved chairman Richard Peña is stepping down after 25 years, NYFF is pulling in several riches this year. There's a surprise secret screening on Monday (which could be Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock" if our guess work is right) and last night a small teaser was unveiled of a highly anticipated 2013 film: Park Chan-Wook's "Stoker."

Holly Hunter Latest Actor To Join, Probably Get Cut Out Of, Terrence Malick's Next Film

It took Terrence Malick twenty-five years to make his first three films -- "Badlands," "Days Of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line." Which makes it all the more extraordinary to see the rate that the director's currently working at: last year's "The Tree Of Life" followed only fifteen months later by (the unfairly derided) "To The Wonder." But even before that film premiered at Venice last month, the reclusive auteur had already wrapped on another film, "Knight Of Cups," and was already underway on yet another, initially titled "Lawless," which will almost certainly have wrapped by the time "To The Wonder" hits U.S. theaters next year.

If there’s one genre that will never go out of style, it’s the coming-of-age film. On the heels of the theatrical release of “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” -- which we greatly enjoyed -- is a trailer for the upcoming Sundance-tipped and Jon Kasdan-helmed film “The First Time.”

All 13 Episodes Of David Fincher's 'House Of Cards' To Hit Netflix On February 1st

After a flurry of activity, with four films in five years (having taken the previous fifteen years to make his first five movies) between 2007's "Zodiac" and 2011's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," David Fincher hasn't been in a rush to pick his next movie. There's a number of possibilities in the mix -- among them the 'Dragon Tattoo' sequel "The Girl Who Played With Fire," and the long-gestating "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" -- but none have, publicly at least, made great strides towards production, so we're unlikely to see a new film from the director until the middle of 2014 at the earliest.

Temperatures dipping everywhere mean at least two things for the cinema: arthouse and adaptation releases are gearing up for their end-of-year showcases, and this year is certainly no slouch when it comes to high-profile directors advertising their latest creations.

Warner Bros. Converting Classic 'The Wizard Of Oz' To 3D For Yet Another Home Video Release

If there is one thing that the Warner Bros. home video division is great at, it's constantly releasing the same movies over and over and over again (note to Warner Archive -- you are the exception, you guys rule). It seems every few years, "Casablanca" gets put through another anniversary release or restoration with another box set or deluxe edition. Meanwhile, did you know that WB quietly snuck Orson Welles' long-awaited "The Magnificent Ambersons" onto shelves earlier this year in a barebones version with zero extras? Despite promising for years that it would get an extras-laden treatment? Face it, Bogart moves more units that Welles. And while we understand there will always be an audience for consumers who want a classic movie in their collection without having to think about it or even watch it, WB's next move is truly egregious.

Guillermo del Toro Says 'Hulk' TV Series Still Needs A Writer, 'Frankenstein' Back On At Universal

This past summer, when Guillermo del Toro announced that the similarities between “Prometheus” and his long-gestating “At The Mountains of Madness” had effectively shuttered the project, among the cries of outrage there exists one positive: it allows the director to move on to his other thousand projects waiting in the wings.

Now, this is more like it. While the DreamWorks marketing team continues to try to get a handle on how to present Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" (memo: those live tech talks on faded social networks aren't working), they definitely nailed it with this new extended TV spot (which is essentially a new trailer) for the film.

While the horror genre has never been healthier, oddly enough, there are few distinct voices in the genre. But one person who has firmly left his imprint is filmmaker and musician Rob Zombie. Since arriving on the scene in 2003 with "House Of 1000 Corpses," over the next (near) decade, Zombie has staked out his territory as a director with uncompromising vision, even if the results don't always work. And his latest is another entry into a filmography that shows no signs holding back or taming things down.
