    Producers of last year's criminally underlooked Watchmen used Bob Dylan's "Times They Are A-Changin'" effectively in the opening credit montage/back story telling. While not as cool or hip a usage of Dylan music, Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger will sing Dylan's "Life is Hard" in her upcoming film, My Own Love Song. Dylan also served as the overseer of the entire soundtrack of the film and doing so inspired his 2009 record, Together Through Life.

    The film follows a singer who is bound to a wheelchair and takes a road trip to Memphis. It also stars Oscar winner Forest Whitaker. The film will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. Check out Zellweger belting out the tune here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xcrsh2_my-own-love-song-extrait-2_shortfilms

    Does Dylan's involvement in the film make you more apt to go see it? Do you pay close attention to movie soundtracks and scores?
