Divergent
Got a young adult dystopian sci-fi-ish movie on the way? Chances are, like “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games,” your soundtrack is loaded with hip, up-and-coming indie acts (the music of which probably not actually featured in the movie, but that’s besides the point when you’re talking about synergy and trying to move units).

Under The Skin
In case you haven't been able to tell, we're pretty over the moon about Jonathan Glazer's "Under The Skin" (you can see two of our comments about the movie in the latest trailer). And of the many elements that come together to make the picture so great, is the score by Mica Levi.

Veronica Mars movie
It does not seem long ago when we were merely discussing the possibility of a “Veronica Mars” movie. Its Kickstarter campaign was the subject of much scrutiny and debate, but the TV show’s fans have spoken, and now we’re just one month away from the movie’s theatrical release. Co-written and directed by the show’s creator, Rob Thomas, the movie stars Kristen Bell, Krysten Ritter, Jason Dohring, Ryan Hansen, Francis Capra, Enrico Colantoni, Ken Marino, Martin Starr, and Gaby Hoffman. And if a “Veronica Mars” movie is simply not enough to appease you, then maybe its accompanying soundtrack will do the trick.

Only Lovers Left Alive UK Poster
Of the many pleasures to be had within Jim Jarmusch's elegant "Only Lovers Left Alive," is the excellent, moody and evocative score by....well, none other than Jarmusch himself. That's right, the writer and director also gets behind the guitar from time to time with his band Sqürl, and teaming with Jozek Van Wissem, they've concocted a pretty terrific set of music for the picture.

Her, Joaquin Phoenix
While an official soundtrack release for "Her" doesn't seem like it's going to happen anytime soon—Spike Jonze recently said that the Oscar-nominated score by Arcade Fire might not see a retail shelf—the Oscar-nominated song is going to be available to own. Karen O's lovely, low key "The Moon Song" is getting an EP release, with a pretty sweet little extra.

Enemy
Rising composers Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans have started to make quite a name for themselves, tuning up recent indie hits “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and “Simon Killer." And in keeping with their knack of lending an eerie, edgy texture to stories off the conventional path, they've once again conjured up something unique for an upcoming thriller.

RoboCop
"RoboCop" is returning to the streets of Detroit, with a brand new suit of armor, but with the same directive: "Dead or alive, you're coming with me." And bringing this new version of "RoboCop" to the big screen is award-wnning Brazilian filmmaker José Padilha, making his Hollywood debut. It can be a challenge for many directors to make the leap into a blockbuster sized production, but to help get his vision of "RoboCop" across, Padilha called in the skills of a regular collaborator.

A while back we brought y'all the trailer for “Endless Love,” the forthcoming regeneration of a 1981 Franco Zefffirelli movie that some number of 40-year olds presumably remember fondly enough from their teenage years to want to remake. This time it's Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde falling in forbidden teenage love, with her the geek coming out of her shell and him the boy with a bad past and an irresistible grin. Or something. The original had Brooke “spirit of the 80s” Shields in the girl's role and Martin “vanished entirely” Hewitt in the boy's, and is mostly now remembered for being Tom Cruise's first film.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
To anyone that says director Wes Anderson has never changed at all, we say, take a closer look. Yes, his distinctive style is well, yes, very Wes Anderson, but he has been slowly shedding and disposing of some of his more well-known stylistic trademarks. Gone are the slow-motion shot at the end, the future font (replaced with cursive and other non-standard fonts) and the use of modern music. Anderson used to arguably feature wall-to-wall pop songs in his films, but that changed around the time of “The Darjeeling Limited” (which featured a Rolling Stones and three Kings songs, but was largely dominated by the original music of director/writer/composer Satyajit Ray).

LEGO movie
“The Lego Movie” is on its way to us, seeking to prove that it is in fact possible to make a good movie out of a toy: and while we'll have to wait until next month to find out if they've managed it, what we've seen so far is encouraging, in that it seems to realise that toy movies should actually be, you know, fun. With jokes and stuff. A batch of TV spots arrived today to prove that, showcasing more of the film's outstanding voice cast (Chris Pratt, Elisabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Nick Offerman....) and silly humour.
