    Darren Aronofsky's Film "Noah" Out Now; Features Clint Mansell Score Performed by Kronos Quartet

    Darren Aronofsky’s new film, Noah, opens in theaters and IMAX across North America and elsewhere today. Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice, and hope. The cast stars Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Anthony Hopkins. Aronofsky "creates a challenging, enthralling, very modern parable," says TIME. "Movies aren’t supposed to be this good this early in the year." "Clint Mansell’s music for Noah," writes the Wall Street Journal, "is appropriately stirring, threatening, terrifying and majestic."

    "Inside Llewyn Davis" Opens in the UK

    Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film by Joel and Ethan Coen, is now playing in theaters across the UK, earning five-star reviews from the Times of London, TelegraphGuardian, and Time Out. "From the moment Llewyn Davis sings the folk ballad 'Hang Me, Oh Hang Me' in a spotlit halo of smoke in the Gaslight Café in downtown New York in 1961, you know you are going to love this movie," exclaims the Times. "Llewyn finds succour in the music and so do we, because it’s glorious." Says the Telegraph: "The film is wildly accomplished; moving and rich and funny and exhilarating in a way that leaves you prickling from toes to scalp. It’s an instant fixture on the Coens’ A-list, which is no small compliment."
