Back in 2001, Silva Screen released The Circus of Horrors soundtrack, described as a cross between Rocky Horror, Circus Archaos and Alice Cooper. The soundtrack features guest appearences by Dave Hill (Slade), Arthur Brown (Crazy World of Arthur Brown), Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth) and The King (Elvis impersonator). Anyway, the point of all this is that The Circus of Horrors have made it to the Britain's Got Talent semis, airing tomorrow (1st June), and word is they're firing up to shock the judges into putting them through to the final, by performing never before seen dangerous and no doubt revolting stunts on the telly. Roll up folks, they've got to be seen to be believed.

Coming digitally on the 30th May is Silva Screen’s second, hand-picked compilation featuring The Film Music of Hans Zimmer followed later in July by a CD of the same.
With four Grammys, two Golden Globes and an award winning repertoire of scores, Hans Zimmer has cemented his name as a Hollywood heavyweight.
This second compilation showcases a variety of Zimmer’s classic scores with the addition of his more recent successes, Mutiny (Pirates Of The Caribbean, On Strangers Tides), Discombobulate (Sherlock Holmes), Aggressive Expansion (The Dark Knight), putting them side by side with classic tracks from box office hits such as, This Land (The Lion King), Red Sea (The Prince Of Egypt) and Davy Jones (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Dead Man’s Chest) to name but a few.
Zimmer in a recent interview with the Independent Film Channel went on to say, “You know my life is really about sequels at the moment, I have 'Pirates' four into 'Kung Fu Panda' two, into 'Sherlock Holmes' two and of course Chris is working on another 'Batman' movie. So that's really my life, so what I'm trying to do is, I'm trying to go and figure out how we can bring something new to the party each time." (Independent Film Channel)
