Hear Alan Silvestri's "Ready Player One" Theme

One break from tradition in Steven Spielberg's eagerly awaited Ready Player One is that the musical score is not composed by his longtime collaborator, legendary composer John Williams. Since the 86-years old Williams was busy with Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Spielberg's The Post, Alan Silvestri (favorite composer of Spielberg associate Robert Zemeckis) has stepped in. This is the second time in recent years Spielberg has worked with a different composer, following Thomas Newman's Oscar nominated score for Bridge of Spies.

Silvestri's main title theme can now be heard here, and fans won't be disappointed. Like Newman's work on Bridge of Spies it has a fascinating quality of sounding distinctly like this composer's work, but with a touch of John Williams and, more importantly, every bit like the score to a Spielberg film. I can't wait to hear the rest of it. This is going to be an amazing year for Silvestri, between this score and his upcoming scores for Avengers: Infinity War and Robert Zemeckis' The Women of Marwen.

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  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

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history. UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company.

The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise.
