What was the reason of their swap? Why did Hans Zimmer quit Kigdom of HeavenHybrid wrote somewhere here that something happened between Streitenfeld and Ridley during Prometheus,and that was why HG-W was brought on for some rescoringI was wondering about this too. Like all of a sudden, after a couple of Ridley Scott collaborations, he disappeared.Streitenfeld's score for "All I See Is You" isn't added to this site. Does it mean, that Marc left the company?Extremely pleased with the release, remastering, and liner booklet notes.  Nice to finally have all of this music.  Sure, some things could have been done differently, like anything else.  I'll be enjoying a thorough listen this weekend, and may watch the film again, as it's been years.
Jasha just released a neat little piano album!<br>Go check it out: https://itunes.apple .com/no/album/time-lapse-ep/1452867752My only real gripes left with the score is the somewhat uninspired choral writing (and the fact that the choir sounds like samples in a lot of moments) and the reused percussion samples from every JXL action score ever since Mad Max.After repeated listens of the score and seeing the film 3 times, I'd say now that the score is MUCH better than I initially gave it credit for.<br>Alita's theme (the 4 notes first heard at 1:53 in A Discovery) is used many times throughout the score in many instrumental varieties and variations, and used to great effect in emotional scenes<br>(I Don't Even Know My Own Name, What's Your Dream?, In Time You'll Remember, With Me, I'd Give You My Heart, What Did You Do), In the Clouds especially)<br>And do yourself a favor and get I See Church from somewhere, it's the 2nd best action track of the score after Motorball.<br>--------------------<br>In short, I would now give it a 4.5 / 5 from my previous 3 / 5Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?Oh man, that's a tough question...I haven't listened to Curse of the Black Pearl in a while.... He's credited on almost every track for themes used... "Fog Bound" is the big Klaus Badelt cue from that movie (the real, 5-minute one in the movie is pretty much all Klaus I believe). <br><br>But Hans appears almost everywhere in POTC 1. Sometimes it's arrangements of his themes by the other guys, sometimes it's parts of the tunes that he wrote put directly in like he wrote them... The following scenes are pretty much directly Hans, if I remember right (this is the list I'm referencing ó but as you can see, Zimmer's name is almost everywhere hans-zimmer . com/index.php?rub=disco&id=1128): <br><br>3. Captain Jack Sparrow (Hans wrote the big theme here, as well as the Jack Sparrow stuff at the end)<br>8. Breaking the Chains (more Jack Sparrow theme...) <br>17. Boarding the Dauntless (Jack Sparrow theme...)<br>24. Moonlight Serenade (Zimmer said he wrote this scene like Cinderella walking into a Metallica concert)<br> <br>Aaaaand a lot of the final fighting music is lifted directly out of the suite Zimmer wrote, so it's 90% him. But once again, his themes as arranged by other people appear everywhere. Hybrid can answer way more about all this than I can.<br>
Oh wow! Thatís all really interesting. So how much of the OST is really HAnS Zimmer then???Hans was composing The Last Samurai while the first POTC was being made. He had promised Tom Cruise and Edward Zwick (might have even signed a contract) that he would only work on The Last Samurai and no other movies at that time. So while Hans agreed to write the POTC themes for Gore Verbinski, he wasn't allowed to be credited due to his obligations to the Last Samurai. So he wrote a few themes and then handed the score off to Klaus Badelt, who got the "name" credit on the score. But the whole score is really Klaus, Geoff Zanelli, Nick Glennie Smith, Ramin Djawadi, and a few others doing arrangements of the theme that Hans wrote (and Hans writing for a couple scenes incognito, like when Elizabeth first sees the skeleton pirates). Then Klaus did do the dark "Fog Bound/Underwater March" tune, as mentioned.Canít insult me! I am genuinely curious. Whatís this about The Last Samurai???I'm not saying this to insult David, but it's funny to me that even now, 16 years later, after so many clarifications from HZ and others, people still get confused because of the way POTC 1 got credited. All because Hans had to work on The Last Samurai (which is one of my favorite scores of his, so I guess it was worth the confusion).Saw the film last sunday and loved it. Also loved what Tom Holkenborg did hear. It did not felt nor 300. RoE nor Mad MAx. It's something else and loved it how it worked in context.
he is working on the new Terminator movie?! :OCredits for Dua Lipa's single "Swan Song" for the movie:<br>Written by Dua Lipa, Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson & Tom Holkenborg<br>Produced by Mattman & RobinMy definition of a Complete score is somewhat different. My goal is to find and mix everything you hear in the movie. Some things you find, others you don't. That's always an adventure in itself.<br><br>The source cues are not hard to find, sometimes it can be tricky to find the right performance/conductor.<br><br>In the case of TTRL, it's mostly the Beam cues that are difficult to find. Francesco Lupica wrote several pieces of Beam cues specifically for the movie, 5 of them which were used. There's also the 'Concerto for Beam' written by Powell, and there's the 'Sit back & Relax' album that was used. So to me, that's a pretty substantial (and important!) amount of music  that made it into the cut, which hardly anyone ever talks about.<br><br>Anyway, maybe a future project will tackle most of these issues.So he's scoring that and the new terminator? Damn dude's getting as busy as Henry JackmanUnless they're composed by Zimmer or someone else from RCP, I wouldn't expect source cues to appear here. And there's like two tracks with Beam in the title listed, so what else would have that name?

Any news on this Hybrid? While the movie marketing is in full swing, news on the score front is pretty much non existent. Here's hoping Balfe's brought his A-game to this (like Ironclad) because the movie looks other worldly in terms of propulsive action set pieces.

Andreas2018-04-19 12:46:39
Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent news


...2018-04-19 12:51:20
Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-19 12:59:38
I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.

I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.


George2018-04-19 13:46:44
I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.


HunterTech2018-04-19 17:33:07
I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.

And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.


Ds2018-04-20 10:23:23
I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...
That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.


...2018-04-20 11:21:34
I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-20 12:41:49
Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.


Ds2018-04-20 14:10:45
For me, a theme is a distinguishable motif or piece of music that is related to a specific location, event or most commonly character, and that the viewer notices as such. If your score contains 20 themes that are never repeated in a similar form and are so uncharacteristic that they all sound the same, I'm just calling that orchestra noise. And I don't see any appeal in that kind of scoring...


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-20 15:06:29
I mean sure, but I can't think of many Giacchino scores that actually match that description. The Star Trek reboot scores for example, where he has a (pretty good) main theme that he plays the same way roughly sixteen thousand times over and over again. :p


JBSO992018-04-20 21:10:44
I don't think you have listened to the Star Trek scores properly. Giacchino has a main theme that he uses a lot, but also a theme for Spock, themes for the bad guys of each movie and even a theme for the city of Yorktown in the third movie.

Another great example of this is LOST, where almost all the characters had a theme that played through all the series and there were also themes for locations or even situations.

So I don't think Giacchino is out of the use of themes.


Ds2018-04-21 01:12:05
Well maybe you guys are right, to be honest i never cared much about this composer. All i know is that i almost never noticed any kind of theme when watching movies scored by him, while usually I'm the kind of audience who pays attention to the music. It can be that his way of writing or orchestrating or mixing doesnt match with my own taste, that's a possibility. Anyway I still maintain that none of his scores or themes has become a "classic", despite the ridiculous amount of major blockbusters he had the chance to score so far...


JBSO992018-04-21 11:36:36
Well, I guess that is a matter of tastes and opinion, because for me scores like The Incredibles or Up, for saying some examples, are classics inside the animation field.

But is fine. We have our own preferences and that's okay.


Edmund Meinerts2018-04-22 17:34:19
Yeah, I know there's more than just the main theme in those Trek scores, I was just exaggerating to make a point. :p

Wow, they're even going over to Filmtracks now and mining my comments from there. That's really pathetic.

Besides, that comment was purely in reference to the fact that whenever a composer gets replaced these days, it's almost always by Balfe. No quality judgment whatsoever.

Think thereís any outside chance Hans is doing this one? Hybrid mentioned on the Film Score Monthly forum that he knows itís not Brian Tyler, and heís been mum on anything on this site. Hans also mentioned in the latest video on the news page here that he was working on something he couldnít discuss yet, if I remember correctly... but that could technically be anything..

With X Men being pushed back and lion king not coming out til next year, Hans seemingly has nothing scheduled for 2018... and Kraemer was never even asked back, he was notified that he would not be asked to return to the franchise, which could possibly indicate that the studio got someone bigger that they couldnít say no to. Iím not claiming to know anything at all... in fact Iím probably completely wrong haha.. but it sure would be awesome to get another Hans score for this franchise.


Bondo2018-04-06 05:46:55
Yeah, I think there's a good chance HZ will score this one. In fact, I think it'd be cool if he reunited with that female singer he worked with on last year's Gladiator! Either way, John Woo is attached to direct, so it should be pretty badass.


;)


Randy Watson2018-04-08 11:13:21
Well, John Powell scored Woo's last film and his star his rising so maybe he'll get the job.

I just hope they won't do something foolish and let some flavor of the month, like Limb Bizkit perhaps, ruin the theme.


Bondo2018-04-08 21:15:38
Randy, I honestly don't see them going in that direction. I'm not even sure a rock vibe would work for this film! Woo will probably want to stick with something similar to Elfman's work on the last film, something more traditional.


...2018-04-08 21:37:29
Maguire who directed the 5th movie is directing MI6, not woo


Bondo2018-04-08 21:53:12
Not to be confused with Christopher McQuarrie, who definitely did not direct MI5.


...2018-04-08 23:10:57
Sorry, I Misspelled Christopher McQuarrie. He did definitively direct MI5 and he's doing MI6.


Olive2018-04-09 01:52:42
It is likely that they have no composer and only work with tracks already recorded such as in the Tarantino films.

There must be a composer and this guy is someone "minor" in the business.If it was Zimmer or Kraemer, they would have already released the information.


George2018-04-09 01:59:31
I doubt it, Olive. La La Land posted on a Film Score Monthly forum that ďthey know something we donít know...Ē and Iím assuming that itís a major hire... and for whatever reason theyíre keeping it a secret. Iím not gonna lie I have begun to think it really might be Hans.


mpolonest123 2018-04-09 02:33:08
I would be fascinated with Zimmer returning ONLY if he sticks to the more traditional, orchestral approach that Kraemer did for the last one. Or any composer for that matter. Personally I would like to hear something along the lines of Kingsman, bold and adventerous.

Itís funny that, outside of portions of Megamind, weíve never really had Zimmer in that classic ďJames BondĒ esque style of scoring mode, unless there is something Iím forgetting.
