The Best Chris Cornell Songs Featured in Movies and TV

Chris Cornell, whose shocking death at age 52 has jolted the music world, may have been known best as the lead singer of Soundgarden, but his music also appeared prominently on numerous film soundtracks, and he even made the occasional onscreen cameo. Cornell’s signature high-pitched wail, either fronting his full band or as a solo artist, helped color movies across all genres, from action (The Avengers) to thriller (Pacific Heights), comedy (Wayne’s World) to drama (The Basketball Diaries), and even Tarantino (True Romance). To honor the late musician, we’ve rounded up the five best Cornell songs featured in movies.

What Hollywood Should Learn From ‘Logan’s R Rating

When Logan arrives on Blu-ray next week, it will include one of the better bonus features in recent home entertainment history: A black and white cut of the film called Logan Noir, which made its premiere last night at a special screening at Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse. The Noir cut looks great, but the real story coming out of last night’s event wasn’t the new version, it was a comment made by director James Mangold during the post-screening Q&A.

Can You Smell What These Dwayne Johnson Facts Are Cooking?

Before he went by his real name, Dwayne Johnson, he went by The Rock. Everyone knows that. But did you know that before he was The Rock, Johnson had two other wrestling names? In his earliest days, he was called “Flex Kavana,” and when he later debuted in the WWE, he went by “Rocky Maivia,” combining the names of his wrestler dad (Rocky Johnson) and grandfather (Peter Maivia). A little while later, Johnson adopted a bad guy persona and began referring to himself in third person as simply “The Rock.” And thus a legend was born, and thus that’s just one of the facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

Simon Pegg, Nick Frost Launch Production Company to Produce Comedy-Horror ‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’

Our favorite horror-comedy duo is back and better than ever. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have given themselves an upgrade and formed a joint film and TV production banner called Stolen Picture, and it’s about time. The Cornetto Trilogy and Paul stars have been working together for decades, infusing all of their projects with their own blend of personal style and pop culture homage. Now that Edgar Wright has moved on to deeper waters, it’s good to see Pegg and Frost back at it again together. And that’s not all — Stolen Picture’s first movie has already been announced, and it’s a horror-comedy titled Slaughterhouse Rulez.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’ Is Being Held Hostage by Actual Online Pirates

Since online pirates tend to view “don’t steal stuff” as more of a guideline than an actual rule, it’s no surprise that eventually they’d start taking aim at Hollywood. And, hey, why not start big, with, say, Disney, the biggest studio in the business? And instead of pilfering something like Coco, how about going after, I dunno, maybe Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth installment in one of the most recognizable brands worldwide? Well, that’s exactly what a group of hackers apparently did.

One ‘Last Jedi’ Poster Seems to Claim It’ll Have The Biggest Reveal in ‘Star Wars’ History

Because Disney and Lucasfilm are, by now, experts at releasing only as scant an amount of information as they want to, we know next to nothing about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We know who’s in it, and who most of them will be playing, and that Mark Hamill finally has lines this time, but aside from that, it’s all a big mystery. There are a few big questions raised in The Force Awakens that Last Jedi will have to answer, one way or another, but a new Japanese poster suggests that the movie is going to drop a pretty huge bombshell — the hugest in Star Wars history, no less.

Harrison Ford Explains Why He Returned for ‘Blade Runner 2049’

Despite a reputation that suggests he’d rather walk through glass than slog through another Hollywood junket, Harrison Ford has been surprisingly game when it comes to reprising iconic characters. Not only has Ford starred as Indiana Jones in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he’s also set to return as Rick Deckard in this falls’s Blade Runner 2049. And in each case, it would seem that Ford’s curiosity got the better of him, inspiring him to revisit some of his dynamic action heroes in the twilight of his career.

Danny McBride Says His ‘Halloween’ Movie Will Do Away With the ‘Supernatural’ Michael Myers

In the beginning, there was a messed up kid with an inside-out William Shatner mask, and it was good. And then, through countless sequels and reinterpretations and bigger budgets, the Halloween franchise became the story of an unstoppable killing machine. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot to like about some of the later Halloween movies, but there’s a reason characters like Michael Myers have become a cliche in the horror genre. When everyone’s anticipating the “shocking” moment where it turns out the killer isn’t dead, how scary can your film really be?

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’ Will Have a ‘More Traditional’ (Read: Bigger) Budget

M. Night Shyamalan’s Split was a welcome surprise at the movie theater this year for two reasons: the first being (spoiler alert) it’s actually set in the same universe as Shyamalan’s fantastic superhero movie Unbreakable, and the second being that it was made on a crazy-low budget. $9 million became $275 million at the box office, paving the road to a sequel, titled Glass, which was announced by Universal last month. M. Night Shyamalan is back, baby!

Amazon Prime Video App Finally Coming to Apple TV This Summer

Amazon’s feud with Apple might have suddenly ended. The streaming service has been loath to give Apple TV access to its Prime video app, or even sell Apple products, for the past two years, but it looks like Amazon Prime is coming to an Apple TV near you, and it could be very soon.

10 Lingering Questions We Have After ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reigned supreme at the box office last weekend, earning $145 million in its first days of U.S. release. The movie also garnered solid reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and an A CinemaScore. People dig it. We did too! But that doesn’t mean it didn’t leave us with a couple lingering questions, both about some of the film’s finer plot points, and about what they mean for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here’s ten of the things we’re still thinking about after #GOTG2.

Anthony Hopkins Is Pretty Chill in This New ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Clip

With the recent announcement that Transformers: The Last Knight would be hitting theaters two days earlier  —  moving from Friday, June 23 to Wednesday, June 21  —  fans are closer than ever to seeing their favorite Autobots (and humans) throw down against a reluctantly evil Optimus Prime. This is the summer of heel turns by beloved franchise characters; first we saw Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto betray his family in The Fate of the Furious, and now we’re counting down the days until Optimus Prime stabs Bumblebee in the face. Rough summer for heroes, it would seem.
