Marie Antoinette is one of the most anticipated films for me this year. I love Sophia Coppola’s work as a director (this, of course, excludes Godfather III), “Lost In Translation” is obviously a favorite but I also enjoyed what she did with “The Virgin Suicides” and am thrilled that she’s working with Kirsten Dunst again. Also, the casting of Jason Schwartzman (aka Max Fischer) is one I’m excited about.

One of the best parts, for some maybe the best, of a Sophia Coppola film is the Soundtrack, and while Lost In Translation explored Noise Pop and Shoegazing, this soundtrack is a brilliant mix of Post Punk, New Wave and Gothic Rock. It also has an Instrumental song by Air, who’s been featured in every Coppola film. It comes out on October 10th and you can win it as well as a prize package with some really cool stuff (wish I could win it, but I can’t). Here’s the rundown:

The Prize:

Marie Antoinette Official Soundtrack, Movie Poster, a Pin, and lipstick that might or might not have been used by the real Mary Antoinette.

The Rules:

Take a historical figure and pick out a New Wave/Goth Rock/Post-Punk song that you would put on the trailer for their film. You can explain your choice if you think that will help your chances.

Either email it to me at or leave your answer (with an email address) in the comments. The one I like best wins all that stuff! You have till October 20th.

The Examples:

New Order - Age of Consent (Marie Antoinette) <--Watch the trailer
Siouxsie and the Banshees - Stargazer (Galileo)
