The great John Williams is not leaving his Star Wars movie career behind according to Madison Street Capital. As fans know, Williams scored the original film along with other classics such as Jaws and Superman. A new Star Wars movie without elements from the original music would really be missing something. The artist has made it public he will be involved with the scoring of the new feature.
The classic music is not all that is going to make a return engagement in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The 83 year-old composer is also going to provide the complete score. This means he is producing new music for the new film. Honestly, it would not be a “real” Star Wars film without Williams since he did score the previous other six films in the series.
What is it about John Williams’ scores that make them so amazingly memorable? The simplest answer here is the scores are incredible. Very few composers are able to craft such perfect music. Williams is easily among the top three greatest composers in music history. Few musicians, even great ones, could ever produce the type of material he has. Williams really is able to capture the themes and emotions present in the films. These emotions come through the music and really do make watching the films a truly cathartic experience.

Following the huge success of Guardians of the Galaxy; Chris Pratt has been adorned by fans and big actors alike but questions remains of where his future lies. He will definitely be back for another Guardians of the Galaxy film as stated by this article. The mystery only deepens as to where his other destinations are as Marvel plans out his future.

Chris Pratt has stated he will continue doing more Guardians of the Galaxy movies plus another couple but that is where the questions arise. What exactly does another couple entail?
The audience cannot wait until Chris Pratt or known by his other name, Star-Lord, joins up with the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, or Thor. It will be an exciting day to come.
Sometimes, really off-the-wall rumors emerge about a film. In time, their false nature ends up being truly revealed. And then there are those times when a rumor turns out to have more than a grain of truth associated with it. In this case, we learn the rumors about Doomsday being in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice are true according to Jaime Garcia Dias.
In some ways, this is disappointing. Doomsday is the central character in the “Death of Superman” comic of the early 1990’s. Superman’s death was followed by two other major story arcs, “Funeral for a Friend” and “The Reign of the Supermen”. Obviously, the death and eventual rebirth of Superman was handled in a lengthy, melodramatic manner. Instead of bringing these stories to life in a direct adaption, the villain (and possibly elements) from the books are going to be combined with the battle between Batman and Superman. Lex Luthor has to fit into the mix here as well. That is a lot of elements for one film. (And no, the rumor it will be split into two parts is not correct)
Likely, Batman v. Superman is going to be an outstanding film and should successfully launch the D.C. Comics Cinematic Universe in a way Man of Steel failed to do. Longtime fans of D.C. Comics and Superman are not exactly going to be thrilled at any changes made. Unfortunately, a lot of creative license is often required to adapt material to the screen. After all, we do want the movies to have the greatest chance of being successful.
Gravity4 says that PG-13 has been accumulating a lot of controversy recently due for many reasons. One reason is that there are many films being released today that are likely meant to be R rated, but have been toned down for a PG-13 rating. There are also plenty of PG-13 reboots of R rated franchises that are souring the history of the films in that franchise.
When PG-13 was included in the ratings board, there was plenty of controversy among a couple of films that were deemed too violent for a PG rating. One film, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom had included scenes where Indiana Jones was at a feast and the contents of the bowl included eyeballs and brains. There was also a scene where someone’s heart was ripped out.
Gremlins was another movie that was met with a lot of controversy. There was a lot of cartoon violence depicted on screen where a gremlin got put on a food processor and got mutilated. Another gremlin exploded in the microwave. PG-13 films were quite violent at the time. However, as time went on, PG-13 became quite tame. Some audience members feel cheated that their films have been toned down to the point that they are watching the network TV version of films which are soon to be released to the Home audience.
Another unfortunate thing is that PG-13 is the rating that allows people of all ages to see action films, so a lot of films are being toned down to make the most money possible.
After a streak of successful roles in Hollywood in recent years, Tom Hardy has expressed an interest in one of the world’s most readily recognizable comic book heroes; the Punisher! Bruce Levenson is a big fan of the series. He has already demonstrated a proficiency for playing roles associated with superheroes and super-villains. His role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises gained him much attention. Most recently, he has reprised the role of Mad Max, made famous in the 1980s by Mel Gibson. Now he wants to play the Frank Castle, otherwise known as the Punisher. There have been several attempts over the years to turn the Punisher series into a feature film franchise, all falling short of anything that would be considered impressive. This time, however, there’s talk of making the Punisher story into a series, much like Netflix has recently done with the Daredevil series. Either way, Tom Hard seems set on playing Frank Castle!
It is reported that there are there were nearly 50,000 cars stolen last year alone. These cars are some families only method of transportation. There were people who weren’t able to get to work and take their loved ones to the doctor. Alexei Beltyukov thinks this is a terrible shame. What is even more surprising than the number of cars stolen is the manor in which they were taken. More than half of these cars were taken because the keys were left in the car.
I am all about living in an area that I feel is safe. But, there is no area safe enough that I would feel comfortable leaving my keys inside the car. I remember my sister and her car dilemmas and it reminds me of this study. She had a Toyota that the key wouldn’t come out of the ignition switch. Rather than taking it to a mechanic and having it taken care of, she used the second key to lock the doors. The funny thing is while visiting our mother one weekend, her car was stolen and recovered from the police. It was stolen a second time the same weekend. The cop told her to get it fixed or she wouldn’t have a car.
With as dangerous as the world is, people are still leaving their keys inside the car. It is kind of shocking when you think about it. Grand theft auto is still one of the biggest crimes around, I won’t be leaving my keys anywhere near my car.
Do you get tired often? Do you long for more energy but find yourself feeling tired all the time? You could be missing out on more sleep than you should be or you could be lacking some sort of vitamins, but you could also be facing a major problem such as an illness. How do you know why you are feeling tired and just what is going on with your body? How do you know what you need to do and whether or not you should be concerned?
There are ways to know the difference between typical fatigue and the fatigue that comes from a serious problem. You can learn the signs that differentiate between the two. You can have your doctor do blood tests that will help to determine just what is causing you to feel tired. That is what Jason had done for him. There are ways to learn the difference between normal fatigue and a problem, and you need to pay attention to your body.
Everybody at one time or another has seen rolls of toilet paper hanging from trees after a night of trick or treating. There’s nothing worse than trying to get toilet paper off tree limbs. Some of the people in West Pittston, Pa. didn’t have to wait for Halloween to get rolled. They woke up to a mess of crappy paper on their trees. The residents think a passenger jet dumped the used toilet paper and plastic all over their yards as it passed by the town at some crazy high altitude.
The folks in this sleepy town knew kids weren’t the culprits this time. There was too much trash and toilet paper in yards around town. No one is really sure if it was a commercial plane, but the Federal Aviation Administration was alerted, and they are investigating what some folks are calling, “a dumped-on extravaganza.”
The big issue is the clean-up, and Brian knows about it all too well. No one wants to touch the stuff, and that is causing some frayed nerves. One resident voiced her frustration this way: “I’d like to know what happened, how it happened, and I’d like to see it cleaned up,” She’s right. Maybe the FAA will send a few flight attendants and pilots to town to help clean-up the mess.
General Electric’s stock is up over 9% on news of a business restructuring that was announced yesterday. The business restructuring would have General Electric sell off its remaining financial assets and property in exchange for over $30 billion in cash. This $30 billion would then be used, along with $20 billion in excess cash flow, to buy back shares in the company. Buyers of the property would be primarily funds managed by Blackstone but would also include Wells Fargo who are purchasing the right to collect on certain loans that that are held on the property.
After these transactions are complete General Electric is expected to generate approximately 90% of their sales from their industrial business compared with approximately 54% today. This will provide investors with a purer play on the industrial business which has recently announced that they are selling a large electric generator to third world nations which should generate significant sales in Africa and Asian. Further, the stock price has been buoyed by the stock buyback which will reduce the footprint of the company.
General Electric has announced on Forbes that they will maintain their dividend at $.23 per share per quarter until 2016. General Electric’s stock price has been in decline ever since the 2008 recession when they slashed their dividend from $.29 per share per quarter, though it has been steadily increasing since then if you ask Ray Lane.
The announced restructuring along with solid earnings have led to the sharp increase in General Electric stock today which is now hovering around $29 per share.
