Classic Silent Film Metropolis Re-Released With Rock Score

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm Flickers

Solid.

In 1927, this cool German dude Fritz Lang directed the most expensive picture of day. If you're a kid from the 80s, you've actually probably seen the flick as it was re-released in theaters in 1984 with a whole rock score. Performances by Pat Benatar, Freddie Mercury and Bonnie Tyler guided the story of a sci-fi, urban dystopia flick and became a smash hit with audiences.

Now, the movie is being re-released AGAIN to theaters, in honor of the movie finally making it to DVD/Blu-Ray. The flick, dubbed, Giorgio Moroder Presents Metropolis, will have a roughly 20-city theatrical run before releasing on disc on November 15th.

Good stuff! Definitely a great way to relive some of the best music from the era as well as Lang's futuristic take!

R-Patz Joins New Cronenberg Film

rpatz in new cronenberg film

Uh oh, film school kids! Looks like you'll have to let Robert Pattinson into your world.

R-Patz has landed the lead role in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, based on the Don DeLillo novel.

He'll star as Eric Packer, a "financial wunderkind" who "risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day." His actions also put his life at risk, in this film which takes place in a "slightly futuristic metropolis."

Knowing Cronenberg's previous films, we're wondering if any of the following will happen to R-Patz in Cosmopolis:

- Will he have a naked fight scene, like Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises?

- Will he turn into a fly, like Jeff Goldlbum in The Fly?

- Will his head explode, like in Scanners?

Given some of the director's recent work, we're thinking this one MIGHT be a bit more low key, but we're def intrigued!

Are U excited to see this Cronen-Patz collaboration?
