A Celebration? It's actually on youtube now.Got it. I assumed as much for the first 3. Thanks.hahahaha ... crack, sorry. Well so far there is no news of anything. Only the video that one track and one with Dave, but it's a preview.<br>I'm not sure how to get news on this, I really would like to get it hahaha.Isabel Suite = Isabel the Strong<br>Thadeous Suite = Thadeous<br>The Quest Suite = Let Us Quest!<br><br>End credits is probably ripped from the film.> Fair enough, but I know for a fact that Steve was inspired by Harry Potter because of the complete score track "Tavern Fighting (Part 1)". The end of that track has a direct reference to The Chamber of Secrets theme from the second film.<br><br>Nice catch. Those are very similar.<br><br>Btw, I have some "expanded" version of the score, which seems to be identical to the complete score on this site, aside from the fact that it's missing the last 4 tracks. Do those have equivalents in the regular release?
Yes, I was referring to A Celebration. "It's out there" as in "it can be obtained unofficially". Were you referring to the Sia track? That is on Bleeding Fingers' site.no, but you can find it on the bleeding fingers page.<br>it also doesn't look like planet eart: a celebration has a release :(Well, it's out there. Looks like no official release?> He's just posted in his Instagram story that in 9 days he has more interesting stuff coming.<br><br>Today's status says it's his "first published film score". That sounds like awesome news. I really hope this starts a trend...<br><br>I imagine having your own label-thing helps for stuff like expanded releases and sheet music?can you produce track for me?
How do I become your apprentice? tremblayliam@yahoo.comGreenland is so good!<br><br>Nice mix between kids choir, electronics and orchestra, remind me to San Andreas a little.Never listen the complete score, so i can't comment about thatFair enough, but I know for a fact that Steve was inspired by Harry Potter because of the complete score track "Tavern Fighting (Part 1)". The end of that track has a direct reference to The Chamber of Secrets theme from the second film.I GOT HIS AUTOGRAPH!!!!!!
Dark Phoneix is more playable than Dunkirk, more thematic in my opinion, and don't agree with that opinions saying are the same, specially when Dark Phoenix has more in common with the early 2010s and some of the 90s score by Zimmer.I don't find the similarities between Playful Secrets and Home Alone, mostly the track (and the most part of the score) reminds more to Danny Elfman than John Williams, even Goldsmith, which his synthesizers sounds, are pretty unique, much more than Jablonsky in this score, but i give that sounds like a 80s synthesizer.Please Inception be next!!<br>There are tons of music in the film that didn't make it to the soundtrack.That's great. I personally like Dark Phoenix more than dunkirk, I feel pretty good visiting Xperiments.<br><br>The funny thing (and I can identify with your anecdote), is that every time I do homework with my son, I put music on him (not just Hans), but he also gets to recognize just by listening to a fragment or the main theme, a example is le petit prince, the lion king and the hobbit., among others recognizes them. He's only 4 years old and I'm funny because he asks me for music to do his battles.<br>quite an experience hahaI have a feeling Hans doesnít even know about this release lol. Itís so lazily done. I hope the packaging makes up for it tho. <br><br>Iím crossing my fingers for Dunkirk but I donít think itíll ever happen. That

This Soundtrack should be way more popular. It's so good! It's probably because they movie sucked so bad.

Yeah this one tends to get lost in the shuffle. A shame, it's an absolutely wonderful score.

Maybe James Newton Howard is on it, due to the fact that direcor Tony Gilroy worked with him on all his previous projects.

I Just listened the mars needs moms soundtrack .It was supeb! John powell done a great job .
Who is the composer of Upcoming Bourne film?

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-08 00:00:00
Alan Silvestri is doing Captain America. It's been confirmed on his Facebook page.

And thank God Powell didn't do The Smurfs! He has had enough bad films on his resume, he doesn't need new ones....

Mario Soundtrack reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-07 00:00:00
I heard that John Powell was busy with the 5 Soundtracks that he had been asked to do. For that reason it has not done either Wiinie the Pooh, the Smurfs or Captain America.
Disney and DreamWorks are now struggling to John Powell.!!

@ *the nameless guy*:
really?! neither imdb nor giacchino's official page confirms that. well, there isn't any composer confirmed, yet. I would be as delighted if Giacchino score it as Powell would, anyway :)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-07 00:00:00
Torque, it's neither Powell or Silvestri. Michael Giacchino will score Captain America.

I just found this track on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCh536cpv8E

I think that was a combination of Mars Needs moms and mars needs moms credits suite. Well,although i love the main theme( you done it again powell !!), but there are still many similarities from Powell' other soundtracks that i can found.( Buck winning theme in Ice age 3( this theme can be heard clearly), Some theme from HTTYD, and Ice age 3 credits theme itself). But, still good though.

Andrew, Alan Silvestri will score Captain america, not Powell.

King Powell!

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
From the sample, i can conclude that:

-Abduction/trashworld: sounded like Paycheck, Bolt, Hancock, and The bourne soundtrack.
-Enjoy the ride: sounded like a piece from ice age 3, when Buck saved Sid from lava fall.
-Mars needs moms: abstract, can't be defined.
-Gribble's plan: sounded like antz( that whistle part), paycheck, and bolt.
-Milo escapes: sounded exciting, but still has a paycheck theme in it.
-Gribble's plan: abstract, but touching.
-To the surface: Sounded like HTTYD, very much, with a little improvement in it, before it turned into that Paycheck-ish action track.
-to the sacrifice: well, good enough
-transformation: original, well done.
-mars needs moms credits suite: The best of them all. I think this is the main theme.
-martian mambo: sounded like that sid-clan song from ice age 2.

No, powell. You started to act like zimmer. But, still good nonetheless. i hope you can do better on Rio.
But, you're still the man.

@Aldan

The reason why it sounds similar to other Powell stuff its because this is a replacement score. Originally, Hans Zimmer was going to score the movie and he left or was rejected, so they brought in John. And I imagine that with the rush they tracked the movie with previous Powell music.

However, the quality of the orchestra sounds amazing. Can't wait!

John: Hans.. rejected? No way! :-)
It was announced (John Powell scoring this) a long time ago (more than half a year).

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
I don't think Zimmer was rejected. He probably felt that this film is too similar in its musical needs to Megamind. He probably passed it to Powell.

And regarding the similar motifs. I think there is only so much innovation you can come up with, once you score a fair amount of movies of the same genre.

I cannot help but wonder what Powell would have done for a concept like Captain America...

Only for digital download... no Cd for this one, right dudes??

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-28 00:00:00
The samples sound extremly good, particularly the string writing. However, I'm hearing too close similiarities to Hancock, Dragon and Ice Age 2.

Despite that, it sounds very very promising!
