John Williams confirms first non-Spielberg score in 8 years

john williams


John Williams is set to compose his first score not associated with Steven Spielberg since 2005's Memoirs of a Geisha (directed by Rob Marshall).  Obviously another non Spielberg movie has recently been announced will be composed by John Williams, a small movie called Star Wars VII.

Classic FM reported the story:

The Book Thief tells the story of a young girl in Nazi Germany who steals books to escape from the world around her, while her family shelters a Jewish refugee in their home. It stars Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson as the girl's parents, while unknown French-Canadian actress Sophie NĂ©lisse will play the young girl.

According to a post on Williams' publisher's Facebook page, the soundtrack is at the proofing stage. The film is due for release in November 2013, meaning fans will be able to enjoy a new John Williams score before the end of the year, and in time for Academy Award consideration.

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
