Composer Danny Elfman has written the score to Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows," starring Johnny Depp, natch. It probably sounds a little like the music featured here (though you can actually hear it here). However, what's likely a bit more interesting than the original score, is the soundtrack to Burton's comedic '70s-set vampire tale based off a 1960s ABC soap opera about a family tormented by strange supernatural occurrences.

While "The Avengers" is going with all your favorite terrible bands from '90s on its lunk-headed soundtrack, at least the folks behind "Snow White And The Huntsman" are trying something a little bit different.

If the graphic violence, giant rats, and seizure-inducing imagery of “Cosmopolis” dissuaded you from the film's otherwise compelling look at sex and politics, then perhaps Robert Pattinson's period drama “Bel Ami” is more up your alley. A new clip and soundtrack details have hit the web, and they both certainly share some similarities, believe it or not.

Alright, you hopefully read our Tribeca Film Festival review of Nicholas Stoller's "The Five Year Engagement" this morning. We hear that It's a sweet and funny comedy that veers off in tangents, but fortunately, it never loses its way.

In the wake of the smash success and pop culture phenomenon of AMC's "Mad Men," other networks have been scrambling to develop their own period-based dramas. ABC and NBC each tried with "Pan Am" and "The Playboy Club," respectively, and failed, with both shows already canceled. But Starz has faith in their late '50s-soaked "Magic City," chronicling the glitzy highlife (and lowlife) of Miami of the era. And with the show already renewed for a second season, they are looking to stick around for a while.

By now, if you made the smart choice this weekend, you're thinking to yourself, "damn, 'Cabin In The Woods' was a nice fucking surprise!" An atypical horror film to say the least writer/producer Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard likely blew a lot of minds this weekend.

If there are any filmmakers who’ve worked their way through record stores as much as folks like Quentin Tarantino or even Wes Anderson, it would have to be John Hughes and Allan Moyle. So perhaps it’s no real surprise that on annual Record Store Day, where you can come out and support your local independent record stores on April 21st this year, there will be soundtrack reissues from both filmmakers.

Despite the success of "Glee," the musical on the small screen is still untested, but NBC is giving it a shot with their more adult-oriented series "Smash." The show follows the production of a musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, and of course, all kinds of drama happens on stage and off. Granted, we've never watched the show, but not only does "Smash" have its fans, it has been picked up for a second season.
