Sehr geehrte Hans Zimmer, und Ihre komplette Gruppe, Ihr seid bestimmt nicht von dieses Weld. Ich kann einfach anders meine Begeisterung nicht besser beschreiben. Ein tausend mal danke für ein bombastische CD, bitte nur noch es auf Hi-Res Audio Format zu Verfügung auf irgendwelche Musik Platform beibringen. Im voraus danke! LG, Jakob.Seems like this is going to be a Dark Phoenix situation where we don't have a tracklist, release date or cover until the week the movie releases. <br><br>I wonder if it's because Miller is still locking down the final cut and Tom's still scoring. Either way, definitely looking forward to this and the movie.Jackman's name has been taken off the IMDb page for Black Widow, so might just be one of those typical IMDb errors (I remember they had him up as the composer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout too).Thats not as annoying a difference as the choral elements for Electro's Death being so muted in the sessions.Everan, this doesn't make any sense, actually, "I'm Electro" is the film version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider Theme", if you watch the scene in the movie again, you will notice that the film version has the little fragment at the 0:13 seconds mark of "I'm Electro", while the unreleased "Itsy Bitsy Spider" listed here doesn't have it, better saying, "I'm Electro" is actually the true film version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider", while the version we know is just a Alternate.
You can find it easily on Youtube today, by the way, I can't find the alternate of Electro Showdown Part 1.mpolonest123, actually "unused source" is listed here, it's just with a different name "Farewell", I guess it was meant to be used between "Sins of The Fathers" and "Max Electrocuted", also, you've mentioned a film version of Norman's death song (Which is "Sins of The Fathers"), and If I'm not wrong, that track has just one version...Anonymous, I think he's referring to the film version of "Spidey Logo", the one in the official album releaseDT-2017, The film version of "Harry's Transformation" mixes "Sum Total" with the part between 2:04 and 2:58 from "Special Projects", but with less instruments and a additional electric guitar. I actually like both versions, if you hear the film version, it actually sounds like it was just edited in last hour to fit in the scene, while the version in the album, I'm almost sure it was meant to be used in the full scene, you know, the uncut scene, with the parts as Harry's teeth growing, his column being fused (or whatever is that thing), he looking at the screen, and more...but then they deleted the fragments, and for Zimmer the last hour plan was just throw the intense part of "Special Projects" into the song, and for me, that worked well, I would like to hear the Intense parts of the two alternates of "Harry's Transformation" isolated.There’s a 3-minute clip of the truck chase on YouTube and I have to say the score sounds pretty cool. A lot of string/percussion work with an awesome electronic motif for the new “Terminator” model. Also, Brad Fiedel’s theme is back. ;)
Hmmm, where do you have found the alternate of Electro Showdown Part 1? And what is the track "Farewell"? It is meant to be related to the Norman osborn scene? More likely "Sins of the Fathers" track?, I think not, because the track in that scene is 3 minutes long, while this "Farewell" is just 1 minute long<br>Also, you missed some tracks: Film Version of "Electro Showdown Part 2", Film Version of "Itsy Bitsy Spider" (which is actually the original version of the Album mix, yeah that one which was cut and renamed to "I'm Electro), an Alternate of "Truck Chase", and "Sins of the Fathers" which I mentioned before.<br>There's also two more alternates of "Flying Montage", one which is just 40 seconds long, and the film version, which doesn't have anything to do with the original version and the two alternates listed here.<br>And yeah, we can't forget about the second alternate of "I'm Spiderman" which is the film version of the track, and it was actually released in the album mix!Isn't his problem when people like Bruckheimer wanted a specific sound and give no freedom in his movies.<br><br>He works for what is given.I think Lorne already has enough noise behind her, for my liking I should start to give way to quality instead of quantity.ASCAP shows that "Farewell To Lilliput" is credited to Jackman/Willis. Is it correct or there is only Jackman? Just thought may be there is a typo on the site.Any news on the soundtrack for Jack Ryan season 2?
I was hoping for Ramin Djawadi to compose The Eternals, well Joseph Trapanese is a good composer so its good news.John powell is flying lowkey now which sucks, His X3 score is just jaw dropping. The Eternals would be perfect for him cause he'd make it epic but Joseph Trapanese is scoring that Surprised Jablonsky hasn't tackled DC or Marvel yet eitherDamn i miss Klaus, he needs a damn come back. Stupid talentedpush...<br><br>please add them...I’ve talked to Lorne (we follow each other on Instagram), he says he’s very open to doing a superhero movie.<br><br>Plus, Henry Jackman tackling Black Widow isn’t a surprise, but it’s pleasant news indeed. He’s scored for her during Winter Soldier, so I hope we get an expansion of whatever thematic material there was for her in the Captain America films.<br><br>P.S, it’s long overdue for Powell to score another superhero movie. X3: The Last Stand is a solid score and I’d like to hear his ideas for a MARVEL or DC film.

So I just came out after seeing the film for the second time and I enjoyed it much more this time. Now, I missed about five minutes but here are some observations about the score and the main themes:

-There’s a theme that starts on pulsating synths and long sweeping strings and it’s probably my favorite part of the score. It plays during most of the emotional scenes (father and sun). Most likely to be Richter’s.
It is included in the end credits suite.

-A very grand brass theme plays at least two or three times + an interpretation at a very important scene at the end. Probably Balfe’s.

-A sparkly piano theme - plays during the moon sequence and another scene. I think it’s Richter’s.

The rest is... unmemorable.

-“To The Stars” which plays right before Mars and at Neptune.

-“Prayer” by Balfe was used twice.

The rest is

In other matter of things... Gemini Man score is coming by LLL!



Jean-Luc2019-10-02 20:11:26
I can't wait to hear the soundtrack soon!!


Der Profl2019-10-03 02:02:59
I've seen the movie an hour ago and I have to say that the soundtrack sounded really much like Lornes score for Geostorm. But I wasn't disappointed or anything, I really liked it and looking forward to the soundtrack release. Does anyon know when it will happen?


MrZimmerFan2019-10-03 11:58:26
@Der Profl: Presumably, same day as the movie opens


Der Profl2019-10-03 22:32:45
@MrZimmerFan: So tomorrow? Or when does it open in theaters in the US?


MrZimmerFan2019-10-04 10:33:25
@Der Profl: Digital release expected 11th October (same day as the movie), CD at 17th October.


Der Profl2019-10-04 13:54:04
@MrZimmerFan: Ah, okay. I was a bit confused, because the movie has opened 3rd October in Germany.


MrZimmerFan2019-10-04 14:40:55
The digital releases (many of them actually) comes the same day of the oening of the movie

Does someone know somthing about why Lorne deleted Prayer? Or can give a reasonable explanation? I'm not that into the whole world behind releasing soundtracks and so, so I would love to hear, why it is that way right now.

To The Stars from Max Richter reminds me a mix from The coral atoll/journey to the line from Zimmer and Sunshine from John Murphy

Maxime Jean reply Replies: 1 || 2019-10-03 00:44:23
Just seen the movie, beautiful and poetic, like 2049 in a way, same type of slow storytelling with gorgeous visuals, and interesting questions about humanity... good SF movies.
Lorne is actually credited for additional score, Richter for the "main" music and... you do ear the difference, mainly orchestral for Richter and the synths stuff for Lorne I guess. The score is very soothing, mainly slow strings or pads, but nothing really noticeable, I don't feel the music helped to tell the story, but was nice though.


Der Profl2019-10-03 02:01:24
Hahaha. That's funny. I thought it was mainly the other way around: Richter was synthy stuff und Lorne the other with the exception for the leitmotif "To The Stars" I guess. Maybe it's because I heard so many synths in Richters Scores for other movies which sounded like the ones from Ad Astra, but I'm no expert.

So. I'm really looking forward to the soundtrack release. Then we have the certainty (is it spelled that way?) for which track is from whom. (Oh God, my English, sorry...)

Finally! The SIX UNDERGROUND trailer comes out in a few hours. According to Mike Bay himself. Can't wait! Balfe and Bay are a good team and the last time they worked together we got the powerful 13 HOURS score.

I really have high hopes for SIX UNDERGROUND.

Any news on the score, folks? Anything on Lorne's social media? (I'm asking because I'm not on Twitter and Facebook).


Jean-Luc2019-10-01 16:07:03
Netflix released six underground trailer today! It's an amazing trailer!!


mpolonest123 2019-10-01 17:28:25
Can’t believe this is going straight to Netflix hahaha

For me personally Mike Bay is one of those directors whose films I either really like (The Rock, Armageddon, TF1, Bad Boys, Pain and Gain) or outright dislike (TF2-5, Pearl Harbor, Bad Boys 2). The trailer looks hella fun though, so I’m definitely on board for this.

Hopefully Lorne Balfe gets to go all out with the music here, with Bay I’m sure he’ll get the chance...


MrZimmerFan2019-10-01 18:30:40
Bad Boys 2 is the pinnacle of Bay's action and craziness

And i f***ng love it!


mpolonest123 2019-10-01 20:02:09
@MrZimmerFan
To be fair it’s been a bit since I’ve last seen BB2, so I’ll definitely give it another go. I just remember being so worn out by the last third of the film, which is just one long action set-piece with Bay’s machine gun editing.


Ds2019-10-01 21:09:42
@MrZimmerFan: exactly, Bad Boys 2 is basically "Michael Bay: A Summary". Over the top, borderline humor, no shit given, lengthy AND funny AND thrilling action sequences (yes that's possible to combine all 3, despite what Kevin Feige has to say about that). And a visual masterclass, the way each shot is framed is a delight for the eyes. And from that perspective, Six Underground looks breathtaking.

Now... 2,5 months to wait :-p

Has anyone heard anything about a soundtrack for Ad Astra? I didn't like the movie much from the story persepctive, but the imegary und music created an immersive experience. Even if Lornes music will be released in a GITS kind of way, will there be the Max Richter soundtrack for the movie? I know that it is the wrong place to ask here, but maybe somebody knows something.


Bast2019-09-25 10:17:39
Hi, Max Richter released a single with the song "To the stars". You can find it on youtube and on every music streaming platform.


MrZimmerFan2019-09-25 11:53:11
Deustche Grammophon will release the soundtrack, my bet is only Max Ritcher


Paul2019-09-26 19:42:45
@MrZimmerFan source?


Der Profl2019-09-26 23:10:05
@Bast Thank you. I found it some days before.

@MrZimmerFan I've heard that too and yes, my bet was only Max Richter as well, but then I found this post on Balfes Twitter in which he states that there will be a soundtrack release. (@Paul Yeah, that's the source I guess.) Why would he say, that a soundtrack is coming if there won't be his tracks on it? But we have to see, I guess.


Der Profl2019-09-27 01:18:03
What if they just release a soundtrack with the music heard in the movie?

ThePhantasm reply Replies: 0 || 2019-09-26 22:52:39
when will they release info on Gemini man?! Very excited for that score

Stargazer_21 reply Replies: 6 || 2019-09-22 05:54:03
Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)
I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)
Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.


Michael Fields2019-09-22 18:18:12
As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.


Stargazer_212019-09-23 04:48:59
@HybridSoldier

Hope so. Will see the movie this thursday.


Mr.Unbreakable2019-09-26 02:57:30
You will like his music more or less but at least he doesn't leave anyone indifferent, or you love him or hate him. I love Balfe, he is tremendously skilled and I think that if they gave him more stable and more author jobs, he would develop better music.


Edmund Meinerts2019-09-26 11:00:55
That's not true at all. I'm pretty much indifferent to Balfe. :p


MrZimmerFan2019-09-26 11:26:36
Balfe, for me, is 'Mr. Average', have a good scores (Genius, for example) even entertaing ones (Geostorm o Terminator Genisys), but for the most part, is average as hell.


Edmund Meinerts2019-09-26 22:28:24
That's how I'd define him as well. Prolific and competent.

Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldn’t help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ‘Terence Malick-y’, “Thin Red Line” feel throughout.

I’m definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I can’t comment on what he might have written, but Balfe’s broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.
