Is Hans no longer married to Suzanne Zimmer? I saw articles from Hollywood in Vienna that he’s now married to Dina De Luca.Really fun score. Definitely on par with Elfman's effort.Chronological order is near impossible for music in an open world game.Hello everyone, Does anyone know how I can find "Homecoming" song in the movie but the film version not the soundtrack version? The homecoming song as it was played in the film itself.was anyone ever able to put the OST and the unreleased tracks together in chronological order?
Year, but seriously, these genres are where Harry Gregson-Williams always succeeded  (Animation and Fantasy). I have high hopes that he will do a decent job and find back to his roots from the 2000s.i love this score so much. this comment is for Hans and team again for making such an amazing score. if they ever read what we write here lol : )<br><br>so, i am not a movie goer and many people claim and say that scores are to serve movies, and so and forth. well, i finally watched Dunkirk and it is an excellent movie. the movie did not do justice to the score imo.<br><br>here's an example. "Variation 15" on Nimrod is the "soothing" track for me in the whole score. much more soothing than "Home". i can play it in a loop. it surprised me that the cut gave it only a mere few seconds in the movie. now, i only watched Dunkirk once but i am pretty sure it played once, and for a few seconds, while "Bane" was in the plane.<br><br>another fact is that i always felt like being in a war plane when listening to "Supermarine". not an helicopter but more like a fast moving plane. that was before watching the movie and i never read about the movie. i knew it was about war and the only war machine i could think of was that. the fact that i was able to match the music with my own images says how great Hans and team were on that.<br><br>the constant tension felt in the "Mole", "Supermarine", etc. is more intense in the movie though. i liked that.<br><br>also, i watched the movie credits to the very end. i wanted to see if they would match it with the track. they did, and it ends exactly with the starting point as i expected. for me it was a cue that "the war didn't end there". sad, yes, but the effect was on point.<br><br>so okay, i am minority here in saying that a score album put together is its own thing. doesn't need a movie to exist. great movie. great score. both in their own rights!Don't want to be a downer but, really, let's all hope things won't blow to s*** like they did with Alien: Covenant or some other annoyance.Harry gregson williams will compose mulan ??!!!!! Come on this is blowing my mind. I truly hope for hans zimmer or other great composer like desplat or silvestri. I wanted hans to score a master piece like last samurai. But no offense to harry. He is good and more than good but disney live action like mulan really wanted something special that i think the right guy is hans !Hans will cowrite the score together with Faltermeyer... :) ;)
It's meHello?Great news! Can't wait to see the concert online or Blu-Ray.Cool that you met Hans! As for Hans doing Top Gun 2, well there's some pleasantly surprising news!Yes!
Hollywood in Vienna: Hans Zimmer was amazing! One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to! I ended up meeting the man himself after the concert! Amazing programme!<br><br>Btw Tom cruise said (in a recorded message that was shown at the concert) that he’d be working on Top Gun 2 with Hans! Pretty cool news!Really a fun and nice score from Dom.Any confirmation about Zimmer and Balfe working on the score? Or they just did the trailer music?good musicIn Itunes.<br><br>https:// itunes.apple.com/nz/album /goosebumps-2-haunted-halloween-original-motion-picture/1439 328170

... Partially ?


Anonymous2018-06-25 21:36:36
The cues that crossfade into one another on the official album have the same length on this "session" thing. Surely that is not how "sessions" are presented like...


Mr Tweedy2018-06-26 10:28:58
Looks like a combination of the official CD and a few unreleased tracks that ended up on the internet 6-7 years ago...


Edmund Meinerts2018-06-30 14:55:03
Yeah the amount of actual new music on that thing is pretty negligible, less than 5 minutes total of short cues. A lot of what looks like new stuff here are just shorter cues that were combined for the OST (e.g. "Poster" and "Mud Fight" are the two cues that make up "Rocky, a Fake All Along"). Unless you're desperate for clean beginnings/endings, these are the only tracks that actually contain new material:

Ginger's Dream (a nice soft take on the main theme by HGW I think)
Our Way Out
Our Future
2nd Roll (only the last 30 seconds)
Chicken Feed

It's definitely not a true sessions leak. But the album was already very comprehensive as it is and the movie's only 84 minutes long, so I doubt we're missing much (if anything).


Hybrid Soldier2018-06-30 18:03:24
Note in the soundtrack, "Into the Pie Machine" is the Powell alternate (used in the film) of the middle section of HGW's "A Really Big Truck Arrives".

So the release has both the film cue & the alternate.

How come there are some guys like Jablonsky and Zanelli who are listed as additionals here, but don't have any cues credited to them?


Frisbee2013-11-17 16:34:20
Two possibilities:

1) The parts they wrote didn't make it to the album program, or

2) It is known that these guys did write some music for this film, but the exact cues are not known.


Edmund Meinerts2013-11-17 16:42:36
Not sure about #1, because I honestly don't think there's much more music in the film than there is on this album.


Mike2013-11-19 04:15:54
Perhaps they did source music not included here...I know that was what Zanelli did on Antz.


Mr Tweedy2013-11-19 22:24:11
Actually Edmund there are a few tracks in the film that didn't make it to the album (5 minutes or so I think).
This could be an explanation. Perhaps some additional composers just helped here and there but didn't earn credits because their contribution was meager too much ?

I don't remember if there was any source music in the film apart from "The Wanderer" (that was not composed by the score team, of course).

I Kinda Sounds Like the Great Escape Theme by Elmer Bernstein


Edmund Meinerts2013-08-11 22:40:22
Well, considering the movie is essentially The Great Escape except with chickens, I think that was the general idea. ;)

So then, I take it JP was the primary guy here?

There's mistake. Geoff Zanelli did not write additional music here.

Steve Jablonsky worked on this score! Wow!

According to the film's credits sequence, Geoff Zanelli actually did an additional cue.

My excitement just couldn.t be contained when I heard that Chicken Run was being scored by Gregson-Williams/Powell after their amazing collaboration on Antz. I knew we were all in for a treat!
I heard somewhere that main title music is a good way of telling how good the rest of the score is going to be and this is no exception. The "--Opening Escape"-- and "--Main Titles"-- tracks are seven minutes of sheer excitement. The music could be easily inserted into any old-fashioned war movie like 'The Great Escape' (which the film and music obviously parodies).
The introduction of the Mrs Tweedy character, which is gloriously placed in track 3, is at first ominous and then sad to accompany the execution of a fellow chicken.
There are many other sad, heartfelt cues in the score such as "--We Need A Miracle, "--Up On The Roof"-- and "--Rocky, A Fake All Along"--.
There are also many other action filled tracks (tracks 14 and 16).
I almost forgot to mention the kazoos - they are great. They provide a perfect comical feel to the score whilst preventing it from becoming too serious.
There are two songs on the album, one existing and one original - which is very enjoyable.

A great collaboration between the two composers who will continue to produce, interesting and exciting scores for years to come.

***** out of *****

Certainement l'oeuvre la plus aboutie écrite par John Powell et Harry Gregson-Williams.
Les deux compositeurs ont réalisé un travail excellent pour ce film des studios Aardman, déjà créateurs des courts "--Wallace &-- Gromit"--.
L'humour est omniprésent et les différents thèmes sont recherchés, et d'une énergie rare.
Du "--Main Titles"-- au "--Building the Crate"-- survitaminé, pas une seule seconde de musique n'ennuie l'auditeur. Même les deux chansons ("--Flip Flop and Fly"-- &-- "--The Wanderer"--) s'inscrive parfaitement dans le contexte.
L'utilisation des kazoos donne un son nasillard très drôle, en guise d'identité sonore de la bande originale.

Une petite perle que tous les fans de Powell et Gregson-Williams se doivent d'avoir dans leur collection. Magnifique.
