Wasn't expecting any of that so I'm not disappointed :D <br><br>So apparently this is out as well as The Golden Circle.. listening now. Can’t believe I missed this.And that's why it bugs me so much lol. They're literally the biggest studio out there, so it would've been nice to see them go to the max with this release. Especially since it's one of their most popular IPs if not their most popular IP.BLU-RAY SPECIAL FEATURES:<br>Deleted Scenes:<br>Edwards Air Force Base<br>Charles Returns Home<br>Mission Prep<br>Beast MIA<br>Charles Says Goodbye<br>Rise of the Phoenix: The Making of Dark Phoenix (5-Part Documentary)<br>Scene Breakdown: The 5th Avenue Sequence88<br>How to Fly Your Jet to Space with Beast<br>Audio Commentary by Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker<br>*Commentary available on Blu-ray, iTunes Extras and Movies Anywhere only<br>-----<br>no Hans (making of) and no isolated score :/ damn...Hey, this is Disney we're talking about. Never expect this sort of thing for that. The ONLY film from them that immediately springs to mind that got that the first time round was Frozen.
I feel like this is simultaneously the most enjoyable and least interesting Zimmer score of the last several years. It's nice to listen to, but it's basically the 1994 score rerecorded and tweaked in just a few places. Those tweaks do produce some highlights especially in the stampede and final battle sequences, but it's hard to think of this as a major effort, really. Yeah, it's good, but we've known that The Lion King is good for 25 years.I seriously don't understand why they didn't do two separate releases like most musicals do (La La Land comes to mind - perfect release). <br><br>A soundtrack album and a score album. No missing tracks, no fuss. And optional 2-CD set containing both.<br><br>Instead, they went with a soundtrack album with some of the score and another song album for whatever reason that is lol.The second half of the new "Elephant Graveyard" is basically note for note "I Was Just Trying to Be Brave" from the 1994 version as well, just with a few changes in orchestrationThis is only HGW's score, a good chunk of it was rejected.Wonder if it will take 20 years for an official complete score XD Not to mention any unofficial leaks (it took a long time to even get that for the original film). TBH, I'd prefer a proper release of any score any day of the week.<br><br>To answer the question above me: Mostly it's new material using the same themes from 1994, though if my interpretation the OST is correct, the hyenas and Timon and Pumbaa get new themes. The only true 'copies' of music from 1994 are Circle of Life and Remember, but even then, they are at least partially-new recordings.
Do we know who wrote what?Is it all material from 1994 or is it new 2019 score?I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).
Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"

And here comes the Lady Gaga watertower hype train again. Three months in advance...for a filmscore...with teasers and premium ultra deluxe editions, minuscule samples, hidden exclusive 128kpbs bonus tracks and probably missing the most important track or theme from the movie...

I mean I am probably gonna love the score but the way watertower promo team works seems more fit for Rihanna then it is for a film score.

Anyway I listen to it and the samples they day it is released.


Mortifer V.2016-01-16 02:01:17
It's two months.

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2016-01-14 16:12:01
I would love it if this score turns out to be like a genuine battle between Zimmer and Junkie's music in each cue, kinda like how in Batman Begins you can hear JNH start a cue and HZ finish it. Having HZ's superman theme and Junkie's Batman theme play off each other throughout would be awesome.


mpolonest1232016-01-14 16:25:44
Oh god yes!

Considering that they are introducing Wonder Woman, Lex, Doomsday, etc. I'm hoping that they bring in several new themes.

And of course the suites.....

Is the music in this clip the score? teamcoco.com/video/zack-snyder-superman-clip

Definitely !

I waaaant ! :(

Definitely JunkieXL, that.

Any idea if the BvS Comic-Con trailer music was confirmed to be Hans or Junkie?


Ds2016-01-06 19:55:51
It really sounded a LOT like Junkie. Hope it makes it into the film because it's incredibly epic.


JR2016-01-07 11:20:37
I found it terrible... Hope the score will be better


mpolonest1232016-01-07 15:40:23
Normally I'm pretty dismissive about trailer music, this one definitely stood out to me though. It sounds good, a little bit synthetic but I'm sure it's a demo recording.


Memphis2016-01-10 22:41:28
It was both of them *I think* cannot say for sure as I wasn't there, lol. Have been following him on twitter and he said sometime last year "we mixed the trailer music ..." so I assume it was them together. Also read that they wrote new music together for the trailer.

I'm loving it and it sounds fantastic in the cinema trailers.


Mike2016-01-10 23:23:53
Memphis, that was Junkie referring to the first teaser ("Tell me...do you bleed?"). The teaser has long been confirmed to be HZ / JXL. ;)


Ds2016-01-11 17:42:47
I think the new TV spot has definitely some score in it. Sounds a lot like MoS sound palette.

Ooops I'm sorry. I thought the comic con trailer was the first.

recording sessions plz


Ds2015-12-30 16:09:18
I wonder how it's going to sound. Judging by the trailers, I think of something colder than Man Of Steel, with perhaps more electronics. More Junkie than HZ, actually. I guess we'll know soon enough, shouldn't be long until WaterTower launches the iTunes pre-order :-p

Btw, no Atli this time?


Anonymous2015-12-30 16:32:31
Nor his sister. The vocals are by Dom Lewis. Interesting. "Paranoia" Haha. lol


Edmund Meinerts2015-12-31 17:27:44
What you just described there sounds like a bit of my worst nightmare, Ds, so I hope you're wrong! :P

Have no expectations about this one either way. Doubt I'll enjoy it; perfectly ready to be proved otherwise, though...


Anonymous2016-01-10 21:39:20
anybody else expecting a two-disc release after MoS, TASM 2, and Interstellar?


Mike2016-01-10 21:53:15
I'd this point, yes, I'd be more surprised to see a single disc release than not...

i wonder what type of drum circle musical invention they came up with this time xD

Mike reply Replies: 12 || 2016-01-08 16:18:12
Am I the only one who's noticed a conspicuous absence of interviews / comments from the composers of this project (specifically Zimmer)? Junkie XL has said a few things over the past year, but Zimmer's been nowhere to be found. He was confirmed for the project, then said about a year ago that ideally each new hero would get his / her own themes.

I already kind of figured Junkie would be taking the lead on this score, but do you think we can take Zimmer's lack of comments as his way of trying to pass the torch on for the DC universe? Or is it simply too early for interviews?


0-^-02016-01-08 16:48:36
I say that is actually for the better. Things should always be kept under wraps. Let the final work speak for itself. Why hype it up, or spoil surprises?


Mike2016-01-08 16:59:46
I agree...but I'm just thinking of it this way: if Zimmer's possibly not moved by this project (which his initial hesitance, and now his lack of comments, suggest), and Junkie XL winds up doing most of the legwork, I fear the score will kind of end up "cold" - harsh, aggressive, and manly, but devoid of much emotional core. Don't get me wrong, I like Junkie's stuff on MoS, but if his contributions had taken center stage, MoS would have been a lot less appealing. At least IMO.

I could be thinking way too hard here. We'll have to wait and see. ;)


Ds2016-01-08 17:49:24
Agree with Mike, the absence of hype, interviews, etc. is curious, but that's because the trailers were released much earlier than usual. In the next weeks we should see much more marketing, and we can expect a lot of interviews, score samples, itunes preorder, etc. They're just waiting a bit because firing all your weapons 3 months before the release would be stupid :-p


mpolonest1232016-01-08 18:46:49
It seems (in Zimmers' case at least) that his usual pre-hype for films has slowed considerably since Interstellar. In the amount of projects he's worked on since (Chappie, Le Petit Prince, Freeheld, etc.) there have been little to no interviews from him.

If JXL is in fact heading this though, I will be really interested to see what themes he conjures. As Divergent proved, he can write emotionally stirring music. Unfortunately the studios seem to insist on him writing the same drums/electronics in each of his scores. Maybe here he will have the opportunity to do something diverse.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-08 20:20:49
The score was completed in August/September...

The film is out in 2 months & a half...


Don't worry, the "hype" is yet to come. And btw Hans really loved working on this one !


Pluto2016-01-08 21:18:04
Hey Hybrid, I know I'm jumping the gun a bit quickly here, so to speak, but what are the chances in your opinion, since you know Hans better than any of us, that he scores the "Justice League" film in November 2017? Zack Snyder is directing it and it seems Hans does like working with him, but then again, I've seen some interviews where Hans states he is not sure he wants to keep scoring superhero films, so do you know much in regard to that film and whether Hans will score it? I know Batman v Superman hasn't even come out yet, but I thought I'd ask this question. XD


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-08 22:52:14
lol you know that I actually tried to bring this up to him, out of curiosity... I got ignored, so no idea !! lol Too early maybe, but I can't imagine he, Junkie & Zack haven't talked about it...


Ds2016-01-08 23:07:25
Hahaha you guys are already speculating on Justice League, but before that we have Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman... for which no music-related announcement has been made. Are they trying to keep everything secret? Or not sure yet which path to follow? Or still trying to persuade Hans & Junkie to manage the whole thing?


Mike2016-01-09 22:22:20
"Don't worry, the 'hype' is yet to come. And btw Hans really loved working on this one !"

The second part of that is good to hear. I just know originally he didn't really want to work on this movie, and I was worried that his lack of any comments so far means he kept those feelings. ;) I wonder, will Superman get a new theme here, like Batman did with the "New Batman Theme / A Dark Knight"? I certainly do hope he decided to employ Superman's MoS theme more unabashedly than in MoS. If we can hear a reprise of "What Are You Going..." in a grandiose rescue or action scene, I'll be a happy guy. ;)

As for Justice League, I wouldn't be surprised if Hans ends up spearheading the project. It seems like they want to give the DC universe musical consistency - something Marvel hasn't been able to say for itself until very recently.



Hybrid Soldier2016-01-09 22:50:38
Even if Hans wouldn't compose "Justice League", Junkie would return for sure...

Let's not forget he worked on MOS and Bat V Sup, but also did 300 ROAE for Snyder (who... actually directed it)...


Mike2016-01-09 22:52:58
I wouldn't be surprised if Junkie were the main guy for Justice League, with Hans giving a roadmap of "this is how you should do this," possibly contributing a main theme and a cue or two, then letting Junkie and co. go to town. ;)


Mike2016-01-09 22:56:15
And for that matter, since Hans did say he wanted each character to have their own themes in B v S, that has to mean one thing: those themes will stay with the characters into Justice League. So presumably, the Hans / Junkie imprint will be there still by the time Justice League rolls around.
