Recorded in New York City over the summer of 2015, the Sachal Ensemble provided the traditional sounds of their home in Pakistan, presenting several traditional Folk and even some Pop melodies of the Southeastern subcontinent. Those songs were then transformed and woven into a larger, wider tapestry, connected to a number of well-known and recognizable classic Pop, Folk, Jazz and Blues songs from the American music canon and sung by many esteemed and successful artists from the Western hemisphere. The album features such musical luminaries as Wynton Marsalis, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Nels Cline of Wilco, Sean Lennon, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, Madeleine Peyroux and Meryl Streep reading a poem by 4-time Nobel Prize for Literature nominee, Faiz Ahmad Faiz. Produced by Grammy-winning producer Eli Wolf (Norah Jones, Al Green, Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello), Song of Lahore is not a soundtrack, but rather a tribute album to the film, continuing the message that through music, we find light in the darkness. The Song Of Lahore album is the sound of humanity at work. You can learn more about “Song of Lahore” at their official website and order it on Amazon or iTunes. Many thanks to Dominique for the heads-up.

According to The Wrap, Meryl Streep, Mel Brooks, Nicole Kidman and Zendaya will voice characters in the Weinstein Company’s upcoming animated movie “The Guardian Brothers.” TWC announced the cast on Friday, as well as its acquisition of the worldwide rights for the film previously distributed in China by Alibaba Pictures, under the title “The Little Door Gods.” The rights exclude China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau. TWC plans to sell the film at Cannes Film Festival this year. “The Guardian Brothers” is about a Chinese family on the verge of losing their family business, a wonton soup shop. When the family’s grandmother passes away, the restaurant is left in the hands of Raindrop (Zendaya) and her mother (Kidman.) But millions of miles away, The Guardians have been looking over humans for centuries. Gary Wang directed the animated feature produced by Zhou Yu and Light Chaser Animation Studios.

A bunch of new production stills from the upcoming Florence Foster Jenkins have been added to the photo gallery, alongside a new poster from the UK. Enjoy.

Today, the US theatrical trailer for “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been launched, which is slightly different (and way more showy) than the previous British one. Also, you finally get a glimpse of Florence’s/Meryl’s voice. Be sure to check it out in the video archive. Also, Meryl has been interviewed on the British morning show “Lorraine”. Further, a second featurette on the film, as well as a television spot, have been added. Enjoy.

The UK quad poster for “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been added to the photo gallery, alongside three new character posters featuring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg.

A first promotional featurette for “Florence Foster Jenkins” has been released, including interviews with Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and director Stephen Frears. Lots of new scenes (and a tiny bit of Florence’s singing) are included as well. Screencaptures from the video have been added to the photo gallery.
