While he may have dabbled in a number of genres, told a variety of stories, and balanced big blockbusters with thoughtful dramas, the one constant in the career of Steven Spielberg (Daddy-issue themes aside) has been John Williams. The composer has worked on 25 of the director's films (that includes the upcoming "War Horse" and "The Adventures Of Tintin"), only missing out on "Duel" and "The Color Purple" over their decades-long collaboration. So no shocker here, but Variety confirms that Williams will once again pair up with Spielberg to tackle the score for his dream project "Lincoln."

Details of two soundtracks coming at you in a second. The first is "In Time," the sci-fi picture directed by "Gattaca" filmmaker Andrew Niccol. Starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, Alex Pettyfer and Olivia Wilde. The cast is solid, but by the looks of various trailers, the jury is still out. Yes, Niccol engendered almost endless amounts of goodwill for the sci-fi pic "Gattaca," but that was more than 10 years ago. "S1m0ne" was ungood to say the least, and "Lord of War" was... well, there.
