A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III

CS3Featuring an original score by Liam Hayes, who has made music under the name Plush since the early 90’s, today we announce the soundtrack for the motion picture, “A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III.” The soundtrack is available February 5th for digital download and March 19th on CD and LP on Night Fever Music. Along with a heavy synth, country and western performed by Jason Schwartzman, the soundtrack also contains a beautiful cover of the Brazilian classic “Aguas de Marco,” performed by Katheryn Winnick & Charlie Sheen. “Aguas de Marco” just premiered on Rolling Stone and you can stream the track below. Fans will receive an instant download of “Águas de Março” with every pre-order purchased.

Starring an all-star cast including Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jason Schwartzman, and Patricia Arquette, “A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III” is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles’ life falls apart and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates— Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) — he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time? The film is currently available on iTunes and will open theatrically February 8th.

Moonrise Kingdom not your average blue lagoon

On behalf of Focus Features, we’re excited to announce AOL Moviefone has just launched the first of four exclusive behind-the-scenes featurettes premiering throughout the web this week from MOONRISE KINGDOM!

Make sure to swing by AOL Moviefone today and all of our partners throughout the week for exclusive behind-the-scenes looks featuring Bruce Willis, Wes Anderson, Edward Norton & Bill Murray.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton (she happens to terrify me), Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.

Indie music will reincarnate the “Bored to Death”

For the fans of pretty much any sarcastic television comedy, you’ll want to tune in for HBO’s original series, “Bored to Death.” Ted Danson, Jason Schwartzman and even the hilarious Zach Galifianakis from “The Hangover” are the stars in this new series. I cannot even imagine how much my sides will be aching while watching this show.

In addition, the soundtrack to this series is nothing short of phenomenal!

Featuring some of the best artists in indie music — TV on the Radio, Freelance Whales, Lykke Li, Andrew Bird, M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel to name a few — and interspersed with comedic dialogue from the show, the Bored To Death soundtrack perfectly encapsulates the mood of the acclaimed HBO original series, yet stands alone as a great compilation. Whether you are an avid watcher or unfamiliar with the noirish offbeat comedy about a struggling writer moonlighting as a private eye, the album due September 21 on WaterTower Music, serves as both an excellent introduction to the sounds of the show or a replay of favorite moments from the first season.

Coconut Records, the musical solo project of the show’s star Jason Schwartzman, kicks off the album with the series’ theme song, a loungey number that sets the tone with its swinging beat, tinkling piano and blast of horns (previously digital only, this is the first time the track is available on CD). From there the album ebbs and flows over 15 songs: the happy-go-lucky indie pop of Freelance Whales (“Kilojoules”), the sun-drenched harmonies of The Explorers Club (“Forever”), the bluesy shuffle of Dan Auerbach (“The Prowl”), the lo-fi minimalism of Young Marble Giants (“Salad Days”), the electro-disco of Arling & Cameron (“Dirty Robot”) to the orchestral pop of Lykke Li (“Little Bit”) and the soulful post-punk of TV on the Radio (“Halfway Home”).

Following nearly every track, snippets of dialogue from the show between the aforementioned lead, Schwartzman (“The Darjeeling Limited,” Rushmore”), and his co-stars Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover”) and Ted Danson (“Damages,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) break up the music and offers a dose of the show’s irreverent humor. Listeners are treated to memorable one-liners such as “In my heart I’m a vegan, but in my mouth I lack discipline” and “She wants me to get a colonic, something about me being in a bad mood all the time because I’m leaking toxins.” By the end, you should be all primed for the debut of season two, set to air September 28 on HBO.
