Since crossing over into the mainstream with 2006’s “Borat,” Sacha Baron Cohen has worked with the likes of Tom Hooper, Martin Scorsese and Tim Burton, a feat impressive for any actor, much less a comedic one. Variety reports Baron Cohen is in early talks to re-team with his “Sweeney Todd” co-star Johnny Depp for the slow-brewing “Alice in Wonderland” sequel, “Through the Looking Glass.”

The Two Faces Of January Oscar Isaac
With Steven Soderbergh’s TV series project “The Knick” getting closer to production, music composer Cliff Martinez has recently revealed in an interview with Lost in the Multiplex that he’s been tapped to score the upcoming Cinemax show. Martinez has been a frequent collaborator of Soderbergh’s, tuning up ten movies to date (they last worked together on 2011’s “Contagion”). This would actually wind up being the second time Cliff Martinez provided a score for a TV show, the first being an episode of "Pee Wee’s Playhouse" over 25 years ago.

Two of the finest scores of 2011 belonged to one man: Alberto Iglesias. The composer who frequently works with Pedro Almodovar didn't get an Oscar nomination for his work on "The Skin I Live In" (though he should have), but did get the nod for his equally impressive work on "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." And now his talents have been enlisted for another high profile film, and one that is quite different than those two pictures.

Great art challenges. Bad art flatters. But those of us who don’t dedicate our lives to film don’t always seek to be challenged. Sometimes we want to experience art at our leisure. One doesn’t schedule, or plan the impact of art (making a film review deceptive, as it can never be a critics’ final thoughts).

But At Least We Can Listen To The Score To Tide Us OverIs there any film this fall bigger than "Tinker Tailor Solider Spy"? Awards talk is already growing around Gary Oldman and with the film set to premiere in Venice in just a matter of days, the buzz is only going to get louder for the film is going to be a major player at the Oscars. While those in the U.K. will be lucky to enough to see the film when it opens on September 16th, Focus Features is testing the patience of those of us stateside as they've pushed back the date from the planned November 18th release date three more weeks to December 9th. The eagle eyed RopeOfSilicon noticed the date change that was confirmed by Pete Hammond over at Deadline in the midst of his latest awards season update.

Though you may not be familiar with the name Alberto Iglesias, you've certainly heard his work. The composer is perhaps best known for the music he's penned for frequent collaborator Pedro Almodovar or perhaps from his Oscar-nominated scores for "The Constant Gardener" and "The Kite Runner." Quite simply, he's one of the best composers working today and he's getting ready to add another acclaimed filmmaker to his resumé.
