Get Low is a 2009 film directed by Aaron Schneider, written by Chris Provenzano and C. Gaby Mitchell, and starring Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek, Lucas Black, Gerald McRaney, Bill Cobbs, Lori Beth Edgeman, Andrea Powell, Rebecca Grant, Scott Cooper, and Chandler Riggs.
The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and distributed by Sony Pictures Classics. Robert Duvall won the Hollywood Award (Best Actor), this prize will be awarded in October. It was released on July 30, 2010 in the United States. The film received positive reviews from critics.
No one really understands Felix Bush (Robert Duvall), who lives as a hermit deep in the woods. Rumors surround him, like how he might have killed in cold blood, and that he's in league with the devil. So the town is surprised when Felix shows up in town, demanding a "living funeral" for himself. Frank Quinn (Bill Murray), the owner of the local funeral parlor, sees an opportunity for some money, and agrees to let the townsfolk tell Felix Bush the stories they've heard about him. Things get messy when an old mystery is brought back by Quinn's protege Buddy Robinson (Lucas Black), involving a local widow named Mattie Darrow (Sissy Spacek). When Felix's funeral rolls around, however, he'll tell the townsfolk exactly why he has been alone in the woods for so many years.
The film is loosely based on a true story that took place in Roane County, Tennessee in 1938. Robert Duvall's character, Felix Bush, was based on a real person named Felix Breazeale.

Driver (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) has a singular focus after 10 years in prison – to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he’s finally on his mission…but with two men on his trail – a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) just days from retirement, and a young egocentric hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing and a newfound worthy opponent. The hunter is also the hunted. It’s a do or die race to the list’s finish as the mystery surrounding his brother’s murder deepens, and new details emerge along the way hinting that Driver’s list may be incomplete.
The film is directed by George Tillman (Notorious, Men of Honor).
Faster is slated to release on November 24th.

Based on author Michael Crichton's novel, the 1971 Universal film The Andromeda Strain tells a documentary-style tale of a military probe that returns to Earth bearing an instantly lethal microscopic virus. After nearly wiping out a small New Mexico town, the code-named “Andromeda Strain” is brought to an underground desert research facility where a team of scientists try to destroy the ever-mutating organism. Directed by Robert Wise, the film offered a gripping tone of near-clinical realism reinforced by his “non-star” casting of such theater veterans as Arthur Hill and Kate Reid, the graphic “deaths” of Andromeda’s animal victims, and the
enormous, cylindrical sets for “Project Wildfire.”
While The Andromeda Strain also broke new technical ground with the computer assisted effects by 2001’s Douglas Trumbull, perhaps the film’s most dazzling achievement would be Gil Mellé’s electronic score, the first of its kind truly composed to picture. Pushing boundaries was always in the bloodstream of Mellé. The Andromeda Strain was made even more challenging by Robert Wise’s desire to have electronics deliver the emotional impact of a traditional score without ever sounding like one. Mellé rose to the challenge by creating such new electronic instruments as the Percussotron, the world’s first percussion synthesizer. He also recorded a wealth of organic sounds, from pins being knocked down at a bowling alley to buzz saws in a lumber mill. Such seemingly normal instruments as pianos, string basses and percussion were electronically mutated into new musical forms as Mellé performed live in his temporary studio at Universal.The result of Mellé’s unique synthesis of sound effects and music was a Golden Globe-nominated score, one that not only captured the haunting, suspenseful sterility of Wise’s vision, but also the throbbing, sinister evolution of something truly alien amidst the “sci-fi” scoring that had come before it.
Intrada's premiere release of Gil Mellé's score features the original LP program, remastered from the original LP master tapes in pristine condition and is limited to 1500 units.

Directed by Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company
Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
After having its world premiere at 67th Venice International Film Festival, Black Swan will be screened at the 35th Annual Toronto International Film Festival which runs September 9-19. It will then hit theaters on December 1st, 2010.

Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is not ready to die.
But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time- fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nighmare comes true.
Ivana Mino, Jose Maria Yazpik, Robert Paterson, Jose Luis Garcia Perez, Stephen Tobolowsky, Samantha Mathis, Warner Loughlin, Erik Palladino, Heath Centazzo, Anne Lockhart and Joe Guarneri co-star. The film is directed by Rodrigo Cortes (15 Days, The Contestant,Dirt Devil). Music composed by Victor Reyes is good through.

Red Sonja, based on the Marvel Comics character, starred Brigitte Nielsen as the titular barbarian and featured Arnold Schwarzenegger as her fighting ally Lord Kalidor (Schwarzenegger, who had just become a megastar off the back of The Terminator, was no stranger to the material, having played another Marvel barbarian, Conan, in two films). Though it was not a success, it was lauded for its symphonic score written by legendary composer Ennio Morricone. The original album featured two long symphonic suites from the soundtrack totaling a half-hour of music; that album was paired with Morricone’s score to Bloodline (1979) for a Varese Sarabande CD Club title in 1990. But this is the premiere release of the score in a proper soundtrack sequence, and features several cues never before released on disc.
The late ’80s classic Rain Man won four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Dustin Hoffman’s now-iconic portrayal of a severely autistic man. The score was notable for being one of the first mainstream soundtracks by composer Hans Zimmer, now known as one of the go-to composers for thrilling (if slightly generic) action music for films such as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Both sets will ship in November and are limited to 2,000 copies apiece. You’ll definitely want to view the track lists after the jump. Definitely.
