Hans Zimmer
For those of you who always wanted to feel the thrill of “Days of Thunder” without actually having to watch the movie, get ready to mark your calendars. Hans Zimmer’s score for “Days of Thunder” is finally making its way to CD! Shockingly, Zimmer’s score, which also features the guitar stylings of Jeff Beck, has never been officially released on the format until now.

Arrested Development, Netflix series
Embedded within its many in-jokes, visual cues, and constantly shifting timeline, the fourth season of “Arrested Development” firmly carried on the series' excellent use of original songs and score composed by David Schwartz (“Deadwood”, “Northern Exposure”). Songs like “It Ain't Easy Being White” and this latest season's “Fantastic Four Medley” and “Get Away” have had fans clamoring for an official soundtrack for years, and now a release date has been announced, along with a possible distribution option for the “Arrested Development” film.

12 Years A Slave
We'd wager that trying to find any kind of merchandise possibilities for a movie called "12 Years A Slave" isn't easy, but we have to admit that an "inspired by" soundtrack isn't the first thing that would come to our mind. And yet, here we are, with full details on the disc that's coming for Steve McQueen's tough, brutal drama.

Dallas Buyers Club
Yes, "Dallas Buyers Club" is, reductively speaking, an "AIDS drama," but we've come a long way since Bruce Springsteen made us weep with "Streets of Philadelphia." The soundtrack for the upcoming Matthew McConaughey-starrer is just as energetic and vivacious as his lead character Ron Woodroof, and details of the tunes you'll be hearing along the way (and some inspired by the movie) have now arrived.

Valhalla Rising
Nicolas Winding Refn's haunting, mostly silent and meditative Viking movie “Valhalla Rising” came out all the way back in 2009. In our review way back when, we described it as akin to “Terrence Malick making a horror movie,” and that’s kinda not far off the mark (maybe Kubrick making a twisted nature movie too).

The Counselor
While Daniel Pemberton prepares to make his biggest splash yet as a feature film composer, with Ridley Scott's "The Counselor," he's been popping up on the right radars elsewhere for a while now. He's an Ivor Novello award winner and multi-BAFTA nominated composer who has done work extensively on TV, tuned up the Rebecca Hall chiller "The Awakening" and even worked on video games such as "Little Big Planet" and "Kinetic." But the Cormac McCarthy penned thriller is certainly his biggest opportunity and he's seized it with both hands.

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.

The Fifth Estate
While earlier today we heard Benedict Cumberbatch's distinct voice frighten Bilbo in the new trailer for "The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug," in a couple weeks you'll be able not only to hear his melodious tones, but see his face too (under a platinum wig) in "The Fifth Estate," a.k.a. "The WikiLeaks Network."

I once showed Brian de Palma's “Carrie” to a friend of mine who found it so frightening that by the end she had to leave with her arms draped over two other friends' shoulders. I felt quite bad, and also quite pleased that a movie could induce that kind of physical reaction in someone. Anyway, the point is that there's a remake of “Carrie” coming out on October 18th, starring the now well-established but still described as up-and-coming Chloe Grace Moretz. With the release less than a month away, here comes a slew of the usual marketing accoutrements...

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
For better or worse, the YA franchise format was established with "Twilight," and the ingredients that always have to be in the mix are: a difficult romance, kids rallying against authority and a kick-ass soundtrack of hipster faves and parent-friendly choices to keep everyone happy. And "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is certainly keeping up with the latter tradition.
