John Paesano is confirmed to score Pacific Rim 2... shame I was hoping for Ramin to return.
I'd love to have Ramin back on this one too, but I'm glad to see Paesano attached to it.. He's a very underrated composer I'd love to see get more opportunities to shine.
John Paesano is an underrated composer. It's a good choice.
Who cares about this sequel! Ramin has Westworld and Game of Thrones:) Way more awesome IMO!
I actually think that Ramin does his most interesting work in television.
Paesano's okay but I was actually hoping for Djawadi to return (not so often I say that, but this is his best film score IMO, and only topped by GoT S6 overall).
Ramin is overrated!
I agree. I don't think he's anything special. His greatest strengths lie in cool themes and especially rhythmic hooks or ostinatos, but I don't think he's yet written a consistently good score (often some wonderful individual pieces contained within an otherwise bland whole, which describes pretty much the entirety of the Game of Thrones music among other things). I hear positive things about The Great Wall, though.
Macejko will, of course, disagree.
I think Djawadi is a brilliant composer. However I think he gets the wrong gigs (movies). In his TV scores he is way more inventive!

So D A R T H is it your final word ?
100 % sure this time ? :D
D A R T H
no, i can't find "Canceling the Apocalypse" anywhere in the movie...
(And an "Edit" button would be very useful ...)
D A R T H
... 26. End Credits part 1 [2:27] 27. Drift [3:50] 28. End Credits part 2 [2:39]
Canceling the Apocalypse sounds like a perfect end of the album track, don't you think? :)
Darth, "No Pulse" actually belongs right after "Go Big or Go Extinct." It plays when Gypsy Danger is dragging the huge tanker to go club the crap outta Otachi.
D A R T H
seriously could you ad an "edit" fonction for the past post, it will be usefull
D A R T H
are you sure "no pulse" mean "no life signal" just after the explosion of gypsy danger ?
Hybrid, I guess this has been asked before, but do you know the reason why Ramin was replaced on Edge of Tomorrow. Beck's score is pretty bad and uninteresting, so it got me thinking about what Djawadi might have done with it...
But seeing how it turned to be, he can be happy he didn't score it in the end...
Doug Liman doesn't seem to have that great taste in music. Even when he was working with Powell, the scores they made together aren't anywhere near his best (Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jumper and Fair Game). And I heard that Edge of Tomorrow was temped with Battleship. Bleurgh.
Uh? He could just have scored his best movie yet... Edge Of Tomorrow was a blast, the only thing it was missing was a good score...
Well, the movie turned out fine...The score just wasn't any good:(
I don't trust in Ramin Djawadi (just to clarify), don't like his excessively electronic and impersonal style, must accept than with this movie, I though than maybe Djawadi do a score than likes me, cannot be more wrong, is simply boring and rutinary, only the main theme saves of the burn, but feels like something may be changed to other movie (like Iron Man). Didn't like me, because is a impersonal and excessively rutinary score
dark prince, No offense but it looks like you are writing "than" instead of "that" in every post of yours. Is there something wrong with your keyboard or keypad?
Ok, seriously now, Hybrid, can you please tell me why was Djawadi replaced on "Edge of Tommorow"?
It seems that this Darren Rutter guy, who seems to be a newer composer...It seems that he has been listed as Additional music for that film. So maybe he is helping Djawadi, who knows. I'd rather hear Djawadi's work for this film, as well. This Darren Rutter person is a mystery to most of us.
Unfortunately, I learned on Filmmusicreporter.com that there is indeed a new composer onboard. It's not Rutter, but someone else. So it seems that Ramin is not composing this film and I would like to know why.
Well, he was only ever listed on imdb...which is never the most reliable of sources. Don't take it too personally. ;)
Well I'm pretty sure I saw it on his official resume at GSA... Don't really remember though... It's not there anymore... lol
That's the thing, Edmund - he was officially announced on filmmusicreporter.com. It was not just IMDb thing. And I don't take it personally, I am well aware that life has its ups and downs ;)
Bugger! I was really looking forward to Ramin's score. Anyway this Rutter guy, is he any good? Anyone?
Isildur: Doesn't matter, he's not scoring it either.
Christophe Beck????? I was looking forward to seeing what Ramin did here :(
@joshua Give him a credit, he never scored hardcore s-f movie; there's a chance we will get some great and memorable score. I think it's good when composers go outside their box.
Oh I love Beck, just wouldn't have been my first choice. Love his Buffy Score.
Wasn't sure where to post this, but since people were talking about it here...It seems that the latest composer slated to score Edge of Tomorrow is Christophe Beck (it's on Film Music Reporter). Intriguing choice. IMO he's a talented composer who unfortunately get stuck in musically-unfruitful comedies a lot, but Percy Jackson and Frozen were both quite good, so I'm looking forward to hearing what he does here.
Still wish it was Powell, though...
Fuck this, I'm out.
There are good composers besides Djawadi, you know. Might not kill you to give them a chance from time to time.
It appears that Guillermo del Toro enjoyed collaborating with Ramin, because he brought him to score his upcoming vampire series "The Strain" (based on a novel written by him). This is fantastic news for me.
came back from the movie since i heard the music in the first few seconds i knew it was ramin djawadi... i had the feeling to hear Iron man soundtrack. haha
cinematography was incredible in this movie. you can read all the actions sequences pretty nicely. you understand what's happening in the screen. they could have go the transformers/MoS way with a shaky cam all the way and with atrocious zoom but they didn't and i adore it.
A first! Filmtracks actually gives a positive review for this one. A whopping 4 stars!
4 stars for Pacific Rim ; 1 star for MoS :)
Is simple, if you no enjoy Pacicif Rim, what enjoy for you?, is best revival of MV/RC of 90!, men
Well, Pacific Rimm supposed to be a mindless but fun action score - and it is. MoS supposed to be something magnificent and timeless - it a simple blockbuster score that will be forgotten after a few moths.
who decides what's fun, mindless or timeless? Both Pacific Rim and MoS are Summer Blockbusters, nothing more
The difference between Pacific Rim and Man of Steel is that the former doesn't take itself at all seriously whereas the latter does, crushingly so. Even though neither of them are complex works in the slightest. In general I find that Zimmer and MV/RC scores work best when they're just having a blast and being a fun, thematic, cool, unpretentious experience. When Zimmer starts trying to be all "experimental" giving characters one- or two-note themes...trying too hard to make it magnificent and timeless when really he's making it dull and forgettable...it's not what Zimmer is best at, IMO. Scores like MoS and the Batman trilogy don't have anywhere near the charm of PotC (1-3), Sherlock Holmes, even The Lone Ranger, despite all the effort I know Zimmer put into making them.
Then again...there's definitely not three stars' quality difference between the two scores (it's MoS 2.5, PR 3.5 for me). And for the best revival of the MV/RC of the 90s this year, MrZimmerFan, I kindly refer you to Olympus Has Fallen. ;)
Olympus has Fallen is amazing, but Trevor Morris has not been a part of RCP for a very long time now, don't know if you can really count it as such
Also like Olympus Has Fallen ;)
4/5 stars for me
WOW...Filmtracks likes an RCP score?
They must have either considered the angry comments from viewers, or they told that guy who HATES RCP and Zimmer to stay away....
"that guy?" All the Filmtracks reviews are by the SAME guy...and isn't it possible that he just maybe likes this score more than a lot of other RC efforts?
And correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he give Crimson Tide five stars? Why is everyone so surprised?
The unexpected has become a reality and now I must take back almost everything I said earlier. Just saw the movie, and the music works FANTASTIC within it! Now I understand all the musical decisions that has been made. I percieve the soundtrack very differently (and significantly better) now.
Hate to be the first one to say it, but this is a huge, huge disappointment :( There are few solid moments, but in general it lacks memorable themes, powerfull musical climaxes and most of all - it lacks ideas. I am known here for loving Djawadi's work very much, and I was highly anticipating this score ever since it was announced in February 2012. But this is truly a let down for me. It'll probably work well in the movie itself, but after 3 listenings I can find no reason why listen to it separately. There might be a slight chance that seeing the movie will afterwards improve the listening experience dramatically (it happened to me with Inception and Man of Steel, for example), but I don't believe it'll happen this time.
Your love for Djawadi is know, but this time you wrong... ;)
I also don't like it.
This is the kind of non-stop action movie where the score isn't given any moment to breathe. I think this score's going to sound better within the movie. On CD it's a little bit boring, judging by the couple of tracks i've heard.
Absolutely love the samples... Kinda Iron Man meets Red Dawn... :D
It's funny you've already listened to Pacific Rim's samples, and still haven't heard anything from Man Of Steel, which comes one month earlier :p
Tomorrow night MOS ! I'll finally be free ! ;)
Where are these samples? Can't find anything via google...
See the little Amazon widget on the left of this page ?
Just click on it !
Thanks Hybrid. I had to disable adblock plus on google chrome to see it :)
Not quite sure I share your enthusiasm, Hybrid... It sounds kinda I feared it'll sound. I hoped for a big orchestra, but this is more "Person of interst" kind of score, apparently. Still impatiently waiting for the whole thing, though. Samples are often misguiding.
Let us hope, that this won't be as bad as Battleship...
Few things are, Tom, few things are. ;)
Honestly it's not impossible that the movie AND the score are both worse than Battleship... The good point is that expectations are pretty low, we may end up very surprised :-)

Morello's involvement definitely suggests that the producers are going for a rock influence on much of the score, but that can be a good thing in the proper context. I'm quite interested in hearing how this one sounds...
The rock sound got me a little worried there, but since Djawadi said in a interview that the soundtrack will be a combination between rock and traditional (orchestral) sound, I'm still excited to hear it.
Can't wait for this. It'll be score of the year I tell you.
If the music in the trailers is an indication of how the actual movie sounds, i'm afraid it WON'T be the score of the year :-(
Ds: Music in the trailers has nothing to do with the actual score, trust me. It's just some generic action trailer music. I'm sure Hybrid can confirm it.
I know the trailer music isn't from Djawadi, but it can be a sign of the kind of music Del Toro (or the producers) wanted in the movie... :/
the music in the trailers were by Groove Addicts & Ninja Tracks, and i hope it, epic!!! but in some of the featurettes thats been released like The Drift for example i think the music in the background IS from the score, h t t p://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQX0Sn1aTVE
