Maybe this is just the sceptic in me speaking, but the process is a bit different this time around to when he did the original. This time, he has an existing score to pull from. Those themes are set in stone. And this is, from what I understand, essentially a shot-for-shot remake, so all this really will be is an 'adaptation' rather than a completely fresh score. Beyonce is working with Tim Rice and Elton John for the songs as well, so the responsibilities seem to be as split as they were the first time round.<br><br>If nothing, I guess this will all result in an interesting look at how Zimmer would reinterpret an older score of his. Not many composers get that opportunity.Yeah, I think he has to do The Lion King first because they have to incorporate the songs with the score. There was even an article saying that Beyonce was working with Zimmer.DT-2017<br>It depends, because it's a musical, and some tracks have to be prepped prior to filming, so he might do a little bit of each throughout this year I'm guessingDark Phoenix is out later this year, The Lion King won't be out until next year. It's a pretty safe bet he'll score Dark Phoenix first.hank you
Are the war-cry vocals in Red Warrior part of the music or are they added in for the OST?@Hybrid Really? I guess it’s not a total surprise considering how much of a mess the film turned out to be. Divergent was a similar situation where the score in-film was butchered...The funny thing with Dark Tower, is that the production was so lost they made him write the score 3 times... Who knows what were the other versions like...It’s interesting with Junkie. As a composer on a purely scene basis, he’s not that good (this is coming from someone who loves his music). My primary issue with him is that he tends to score scenes with ambience, or stretched out sound design. That was a huge problem I had with Dark Tower.<br><br>But like I said elsewhere, he’s still growing as a composer. Watch something like Black Mass where the music in film complements the scenes amazingly.Hans does not have the credit as a producer on this.<br><br>XL is limited, I agree, but I hope he does something fun (the film is not even taken seriously).
Funnily enough, I'm far more critical of Hans than Junkie, given how much the former relies on ghostwriters, but the fact of the matter is that Hans fundamentally understands how to write a film score, and Junkie, from what I've heard, simply doesn't. Mad Max, although a success, is more a function of the film suiting an extremely rhythmic, percussive sound, rather than Junkie being competent, IMHO. So - somewhat joking here, as I know it won't happen - I'd be down for Hans writing a suite for this and Junkie basically copy/pasting it into the film.Hybrid, do you have credits for this version by any chance?welp, looks like we're back to the whole "tom holkenborg aka junkie XL" thing againPoint Break is fantastic!!!!I like Dark Tower, not a terrific score, but i liked it.<br><br>But Point Break... oh, god
What about the Dark Phoenix score? Did he finish it already or doing it in between the Lion King?Wow, I never realized that the oscorp theme is basically Watergate from Frost/NixonI wish so much more! The movie promises to be as good as the last Jumanji! I'm not a big fan of Point Break or Dark Tower, but I think XL has a lot of stuff to explore this time, like in Mad Max.It does not have to be anything extraordinary, just something that gives life to the film.Yes he has, for a few months now actually...Hybrid, do you know if Hans has started on the new Lion King yet?

I like, seriously need this soundtrack. I wasn't that excited at first, but Brothers in Arms sold it to me. Wish I could buy that track already and have it around before this one comes out.
Really can't wait to hear the new Batman themes in the future.


mpolonest1232015-05-10 18:05:14
Same here!

When I first heard the samples I really was not impressed, some of it screamed 300 to me. After hearing this track though, I am honestly blown away.

If JXL can lend his voice (and the emotion of Run All Night/Divergent) his music for Batman could be incredible!


Daniel2015-05-10 18:10:37
I agree Everan! I am going nuts without this! I need someone to leak moreee so that I can survive for two more days, this music is just awesome

Damn I want this to get leaked already! I purchased it anyway but I just can't wait to hear it. It sounds really unique while it also feels like he made a mashup all of all his previous scores in a single film which is unique as well.


Hybrid Soldier2015-05-08 01:07:15
Little extract ! ;O)


Adrian2015-05-08 02:24:26
Ohhh thanks!


Anonymous2015-05-08 02:57:52
Wow Hybrid, I honestly have to thank you for this! It is perfect! And the funny part is that this was the song I mostly desired to hear!


Adam2015-05-08 03:08:47
it sounds like the trailer music! This is awesome!


JamesT2015-05-08 03:45:16
Thanks Hybrid for the clip!
Superb!!!!


Ds2015-05-08 09:35:24
I like it!! Can't wait till next week!


Edmund Meinerts2015-05-08 09:46:04
I don't generally like listening to samples so I only clicked into a few random seconds of the cue, but it sounded OK. Junkie has some pretty cool synth patches and sound design elements going on at times. But I still don't like his percussion writing. There's nothing that sounds explicitly like Man of Steel from what I can tell, but like that score, I find the rhythms too heavy and uncreative. More tiring than energetic. Since a Mad Max movie practically demands heavy percussion, and considering how good he is with it, I can't help but wish Powell had stayed on.


Mike2015-05-08 15:18:06
Once it gets to 1:30, and then to the end, it's surprisingly good! I wasn't expecting to like it this much. :)


Lambegue2015-05-08 16:20:51
Seems to be nice, even if quite ordinary...Like Edmund, I would have loved to hear Powell on this project.


Hybrid Soldier2015-05-08 16:31:30
Please stop with this Powell thing.

He was attached to it 11 years ago... If there's ONE guy on Earth who decided to drop scoring this, it's him. His choice. I won't feel sorry for him... :P


Edmund Meinerts2015-05-08 17:05:12
Yeah, I know he probably wouldn't have done it even if offered at this stage...Doesn't stop me wishing, though. And hell, at least I have Pan to look forward to this year, which is more than I thought I would.

Even if it's not Powell, though, the chain of composers I'd pick over JXL is preeeeeetty long...


Evenstar2015-05-08 17:47:09
Brother in Arms sounds awesome! Can't wait for the rest.


Ds2015-05-08 18:33:37
I think nobody knows this movie better than George Miller does, and HE picked Junkie XL to score it, and HE was amazed by all the music he delivered, and HE thought it matched his vision perfectly. You speak about "picking other composers", yet I think you haven't seen the movie.
And even if, let's say, John Powell had scored this, what makes you think Miller wouldn't have asked him a brutal score full of electronics and drums?


Edmund Meinerts2015-05-08 19:19:52
That's just what I'm trying to say, Ds. I think Powell would have been capable of writing a brutal score full of electronics and drums that I would have also liked and found a cool and interesting listen on album, far moreso than that JXL track (which I've now listened to in full). Hell, Powell's already written a score like that: Green Zone! Just take that and make it less thriller-y and more insane and splashy. That would be an awesome Mad Max score!

And are you really going to use the "director is always right about his movie" argument in light of some of the truly idiotic choices directors have made in film music over the years? Nazgul theme in The Hobbit? What George Lucas did in Attack of the Clones? Ridley Scott (just...Ridley Scott)?


Ds2015-05-08 20:04:51
I understand you would have liked a Powell score better, but that doesn't mean the director is not RIGHT... Maybe he just has different musical tastes, or another idea for his movie. That's all I'm trying to say :-)

Btw there's a new TSFH album containing great music (the Bergersen half, of course) to keep you busy during the Fury Road madness that's about to unleash on the filmmusic community :-p


Hybrid Soldier2015-05-08 20:11:59
Powell could have delivered Green Zone... Who remembers Green Zone ? lol

Even I don't... lol


Edmund Meinerts2015-05-08 23:17:21
I remember it. "Attack and Chase" is a bloody fantastic action cue. It's not the most memorable score in the world but it's exciting and energetic as hell.

So the big one... Been waiting for it for what, 11 years ? When John Powell was attached to do it ? lol


Ds2015-03-06 00:19:14
Holy shit, WaterTower is launching the hype machine earlier and earlier, this release is over 2 months from now :-p


Adam2015-03-06 02:08:17
Yes!!!! I have been waiting a loooooong time for this one!!


Macejko2015-03-06 14:25:11
The movie looks positively insane, hopefully the score will be too ;)


Edmund Meinerts2015-03-06 14:42:31
That was a happier time, Hybrid, wasn't it...


Hybrid Soldier2015-03-06 15:02:20
It would have been one hell of a ride for Powell, especially doing some serious live action film (I'm tired of animation a little), and since his work with Miller is the best (love love love Happy Feet).

But I'm super curious on a score who took 2 years to compose for Junkie (while for instance, Run All Night took less than 2 weeks... lol) !


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-01 19:59:11
Some details !! :)

Pretty long OST ! :)


Lambegue2015-04-01 20:34:19
I'm really impatient to see this movie, and quite curious about the score. Miller had quite a lot of good soundtracks for his movies in the past.


Scorefan2015-04-01 21:23:13
Hell yeah!!!!!
Now this will be available on 2 cd's or only digital download?
By the way, for what can we hear in the trailer, i think this is going to be a pretty and sweet badass epic score


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-01 21:58:28
Physical will be one CD with I guess half of this digital release...


Ds2015-04-01 22:25:11
Very long album indeed! I'm eager to discover it but the first track published by WaterTower on FB didn't seduce me at all. However one thing's already sure, it'll sound f***** epic in the movie.


Ds2015-04-01 22:37:54
Actually we can preview the entire album on iTunes US. It sounds just like 300: Rise of an Empire, loads of heavy drums and big synth brass. Some tracks look insane, it'll be a terrific score.


Hybrid Soldier2015-04-02 00:23:45
Yeah I listened to it (that was pretty long preview as a whole ! lol), gonna be great for who likes Junkie ! :)

Obviously you have influences from MOS, Divergent & 300, which is quite normal since this score has been in the process of making for more than 2 years, while those others scores were done ine parallel... One of the themes is very VERY close to a Divergent one lol... Lot of electro but also a few very old fashioned cues...

Can't wait for the full thing !


Daniel2015-04-02 05:23:13
Why Powell, why? You would have been perfect for this. :(


NotSoAnonymous2015-04-02 08:09:43
Spikey Cars is rust a riot! Love It!


Meta2015-04-02 16:34:10
it sounds very noisy.....I get it but...Damn...he needs to use a bit more bass in his mixes.


mpolonest1232015-04-02 16:54:55
I LOVE the "Dauntless Attack" in "Claw Trucks"! It sounds exactly the same lol.

As for the rest of the samples, I feel like hearing it in context of the visuals will really help this score out.


Alexander Theodoridis2015-04-02 19:17:45
Another score from mister Junkie xl and OMG 2 hours wow if its like run all night mind blowing


tom2015-04-02 19:21:18
I'm sorry for my intrusion...but where can I listen the samples ? because, I listen only one preview which is from ''Escape''...but not the rest of the score...
Many thanks in advance :)

I've listened to the samples again and, I don't know...This score sounds alot like his work on Man of Steel and 300-2.....I'm not saying it's bad or good - it is what it is - but to me, his music sounds like he's been using old synths given to him by both Hans Zimmer and Tyler Bates....I say Tyler bates because if you've ever heard his earlier stuff, it's very drony, loud, percussive, and just really grating....I don't know if this is Junkie XL growing into his own, or what, but I have to admit alot of it is too shrill for me to enjoy.
