Edmund ! For YOU !! lolthis one is my pick for the oscar as well. hope it wins : )When will this tracklist be leaked?I heard and thought that Zimmer stopt scoring superhero movies (including Justice League and what comes after) because it has taken 13 years of his life and he wanted to do something elseWere the two men no longer talking or did Zimmer anticipate Snyder's departure as he did in Pirates?
@Olive: Rumors says Zimmer didn't want compose Justice League because of Snyder, and left behind JunkieI agree that Elfman's theme fits into Nolan's films as long as they are adapted to them. However, I think the way things have gone was not bad. TDK trilogy was marked as a project fruit of Nolan's unique vision. Although the themes do not respect the orchestral tradition are more memorable than those composed for more than half of the films of heroes of the last 25 years.Zimmer's entry into the genre can be interpreted as a breath of fresh air in a saturated marketplace at the time. But I agree that the lack of originality these days falls on Zimmer and his company and that the goal of it goes far beyond bringing talents to light.Now we need something new, again.@Hybrid any news on Season 2 soundtrack release?Of cause Balfe worked on it !!! His whole team are credited !!!!!!!Honestly, the purpose of RCP is essentially to take Zimmer's style and make it widespread for use...WB not using ANY RCP to score this seems to have been deliberate, as there's literally no reason it couldn't be done.
^ hahaha :D<br><br>I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings?They're starting to send screeners. Finger crossed for the FYC :DThe score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmerís Superman theme, something we havenít heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.
Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.

Interesting But Action Score For Harry Gregson-Williams With An New Additional Music By Stephanie Economou in Another Ben Affleck Movie 2016

While I'm always happy to see HGW get new assignments, I'm also always a bit disappointed when it turns out to be a thriller (which is the case nine times out of ten with him, these days).

I want to hear him in Narnia/Kingdom of Heaven mode again. The only music like that he's written lately are his three cues from Exodus, which are really great, but it's not enough... :(


Saurabh2016-12-18 02:18:43
I guess it's the kind of approach Affleck prefers from HGW. It's the same basic style heard in Gone Baby Gone and The Town where you have an ambient soundscape aided by some slow strings and a guiter.

HGW is extremely adept in writing some aggressive orchestral cues as in KoH, Narnia and Prince of Persia. Hitite Battle was my favorite track from Exodus. Too bad he doesn't do many such projects.

And given the outstanding work he has done with Ridley Scott, its a shame he won't be doing Alien: Covenant.


Edmund Meinerts2016-12-18 11:39:11
Yeah, Affleck seems to have assumed the "director who gets HGW to provide boring thriller scores" mantle from Tony Scott. I'm not really sure what it is with Scott...earlier in his career he would get scores with big themes, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, even Enemy of the State to an extent. But from Spy Game onwards pretty much all the scores to his movies fell into the same boring thriller-score pattern. Wonder what happened to turn him off to bold thematic film scoring? (Then again, I wonder that about most of Hollywood these days...)

"Hittite Battle" and "Tsunami" were both great. A little teasing glimpse of the HGW of old.


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-18 11:52:00
I "mostly" agree with Tony Scott's score BUT Dťj&#224; Vu is fantastic in every way, and it has lots of themes... lol


rockhound2016-12-18 14:41:09
Days Of Thunder, Crimson Tide and Enemy Of the State are simpson/bruckheimer productions. Thats why these scores have big heroic themes and an epic feel. but if u listen to The Fan, thats already harry gregson-williams style, although its a zimmer score. i really liked the team tony scott/harry gregson-williams. its a special thriller music style with a very specific sounds. afflecks Gone Baby Gone was also very lovely with a beautiful theme and a couple of nice motifs here and there during the suspense stuff. the new movie has a different setting than the other affleck movies, so maybe harry is using less electronics and more orchestra.


Hari Haran2016-12-18 19:27:03
Edmund, hush.

The amount of people wanting Trent Reznor to score his upcoming Batman film frightens me.

I'd rather have HGW in thriller/superhero mode for Affleck any day, in comparison.


rockhound2016-12-18 20:08:21
sound clips on amazon.de. the music sounds great and nothing like The Town or the tony scott movies.


Brent2016-12-18 20:08:25
^ Harry better score that Batman film.


Ds2016-12-18 23:49:44
I hope HGW scores Affleck's Batman movie, seems like an obvious choice actually. Affleck keeps his relationship with HGW, and Batman remains in RCP territory. Nice deal :-p


JamesT2016-12-19 04:29:11
Love the sound clips and excited for the release on Friday!

Tracks like Ybor City remind me of early sounds of Smilla and Deja Vu; Three Years, Four Months has a Passionada and GBG flair to it; Loretta Figgis is beautiful!

Hybrid: any idea who is doing the vocal work? Lisbeth Scott??

I'm also really looking forward to The Zookeeper's Wife!

wait, HGW is not doing Alien:Covenant? I thought he confirmed before that he is doing this!
