NOAHUntil a link hit my inbox this evening, I was unaware of the massive spectacle that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (BLACK SWAN) had been crafting for the past two years...

Based on the best-selling book, THE BIBLENOAH is the cinematic adaptation of the story of Noah, "the world's only righteous man," as he takes on "a divine mission to build a massive ark to save his family and all of creation before the impending rains fall and the flood waters rise." It's the big budget telling of Noah's Ark starring Russell Crowe as the title character, with Jennifer Connelly as Naameh, Emma Watson as Ila, and Sir Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah. Check out the trailer below. NOAH is set for release by Paramount Pictures on March 28, 2014.

Who is Sponsoring THE STARVING GAMES?

Written by

There is no disputing that THE HUNGER GAMES is a huge deal right now, and nothing solidifies that more than when a property becomes so much a part of popular culture that is warrants it's own parody. On November 8, Ketchup Entertainment will release THE STARVING GAMES, a new send-up from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the dastardly duo behind EPIC MOVIE, DATE MOVIE, DISASTER MOVIE, MEET THE SPARTANS, VAMPIRES SUCK, and the forthcoming FAST AND THE FURIOUS parody, SUPERFAST. With Halloween happening tomorrow (and THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE out November 22), a special feature just landed here at Rock Father HQ, and it's prime for inclusion right here in the "For Grownups" section of the site. When Candy Corn is involved, all bets are off. So who is sponsoring THE STARVING GAMES? Scroll through the gallery below to find out...

I just watched HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH tonight. Well, I watched part of it while the girls were getting ready for bed, and then my wife turned it off. It's cool, since I have the DVD and will watch it again shortly, but it's Day 22 of 31 Days of Halloween here on The Rock Father, and my entry today has everything to do with the HALLOWEEN series... the music of the series. A new offering for 2013, HALLOWEEN: THE SOUND OF EVIL – MUSIC FROM THE HALLOWEEN FILM SCORES  (BuySoundtrax) is a 35th Anniversary Celebration of the music from the eight films in the original HALLOWEEN series, followed by the two reimaginings that ROB ZOMBIE did not long ago. Produced and Arranged by Dominik Hauser, the album features iconic music composed by John Carpenter, Alan Howarth, John Ottman, Danny Lux, and Tyler Bates.

Whenever I post something that falls into this realm, I always have to add a preface, because I get asked: No, I am not a "Brony." I have two daughters that absolutely adore MY LITTLE PONY, but even even though I've watched it with them on The Hub, I cannot get into MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC. But... I know guys that do (some of whom read this site), and I don't knock it, but it's just not for me. That said, the documentary film, BRONIES: THE EXTREMELY UNEXPECTED ADULT FANS OF MY LITTLE PONY is getting a wide-release on DVD on December 17th via MVD Entertainment Group.

MM25: MEGA MAN ROCKS Compilation Album on the Way...

Written by

MEGA MAN is 25 years old. Let that one sink in for a minute. Sumthing Music Works just hit The Rock Father with the full details on MM25: MEGA MAN ROCKS, a new, 18-track collection featuring songs inspired by the MEGA MAN franchise, and performed by MEGA MAN fan-favorite bands including THE PROTOMEN, THE MEGAS, X-HUNTERS, MEGA RAN, BIT BRIGADE, and ARM CANNON. Check out the tracklisting below...

It's almost October, and CASTLEVANIA certainly sounds good right about now. It's been years since I've played a CASTLEVANIA Game, but the NES and SNES titles made a lifelong impact on me. Now, this news that Konami and Sumthing Digital have partnered for a series of soundtracks based on CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW has my interest renewed. Check out the details below...

Once in awhile I get something that lands here at Rock Father HQ and I find myself puzzled on where to put it. I have a lot of coverage area on the site, but even here in the "For Grownups" section, I'm sometimes stumped. In this case, I don't have a section for Dance, but here I am sharing with you some videos from New York's KEIGWIN + COMPANY. The reason? My wife is a MASSIVE fan of PROJECT RUNWAY, and the latest video features fashion designer AUSTIN SCARLETT, whose work my wife very much enjoys.

My wife loves MAD MEN. I've watched it a few times, but never have time to invest in the 60s awesomeness fully. That said, I've always been a fan of the music, and now the jazzy tunes from composer DAVID CARBONARA is coming home. On August 13, Silva Screen will release MAD MEN: ON THE ROCKS - Music From the Television Series. Available for pre-order on iTunes now, this 23-track collection also includes "A Beautiful Mine," RJD2's original theme.

Composer Frederik Wiedmann's rep hit The Rock Father with details tonight on a pair of projects that he'll be doing music for -- both in the world of DC COMICS from Warner Bros. Animation: BEWARE THE BATMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE FLASHPOINT PARADOX. Full details can be found below...

kingofcomedyAfter a sold-out 30th Anniversary Screening that closed out the 12th Annual Tribeca Film Festival,  Martin Scorsese's 1983 film THE KING OF COMEDY has been released on Digital HD via iTunes for the very first time. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment just hit The Rock Father with notice of the release...
