Ridley Scott has teamed up with the best living American author, Cormac McCarthy, to adapt McCarthy’s first original screenplay, The Counselor, for the big screen. Starring Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt, and Cameron Diaz, The Counselor tells the story of a lawyer (Fassbender) who gets in too deep with drug smugglers. Suffice it to say, it looks amazing. The Counselor is out October 25th.
opens everywhere June 7th, unfortunately.

Rather than taking the conventional approach and releasing a follow-up to 2011’s hit LP Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, France’s M83 instead took the unique route (would you expect anything else?) and have been recording the soundtrack to Oblivion. Oblivion stars Tom Cruise as he is caught on a deserted post-apocalyptic Earth where Morgan Freeman wears menacing sunglasses while he sits in the dark. But Oblivion aside, M83 thus far still delivers. The new music is still rooted in the group’s idiosyncratic brand of new wave dream pop, but on a much more “epic” and “Hollywood” scale. The music is less focused on making a “song” than creating a feeling under which scenes unfold.
Here’s the trailer for Oblivion. Hits theaters April 12th.
