To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!Some original cue titles with slates from a music mixing CD-R:<br>1M13 Transactions<br><br>2M16 Jake Gets Stoned<br>2M20A Alley<br>2M21 Rapists Castration<br><br>3M24 My Old Division<br>3M27 Go Fetch Dog<br>3M30 The Freeway<br>3M32 Alonzo Steals Money<br>3M33 Into The Jungle<br><br>4M41 Safety Is First / Busting Into Rogers<br><br>5M46 Helicopter<br>5M48 Sunset / Wet Streets<br>5M51 Jake Gets Beaten<br>5M52 Smiley Calls His Cousin<br><br>6M57 On The Roof<br>6M58 Jake Lands On Car<br><br>7M61 Alonzo Dies<br>7M63 Sun ShotMovie credits:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer & David Fleming<br><br>Music Supervisor: Joe Rudge<br><br>Score Produced by Hans Zimmer<br>Supervising Music Editor: Ryan Rubin<br>Music Editor: Nate Underkuffler<br>Music Production Services: Steven Kofsky<br>Additional Music by Ben Powell<br>Featured Guitar Soloist: Derek Trucks<br>Score Mixed by Seth Waldmann<br>Score Mix Assistant: Aldo Arechar<br>Technical Score Engineer: Chuck Choi<br>Technical Assistants: James Grimwade, Aldo Arechar, Steven Doar & Fabio Marks<br>Synth Programming: Hans Zimmer<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark Wherry<br>Digital Instrument Preparation: Taurees Habib, Raul Vega, David Naroth & Paul Salerno<br>Studio Manager for Remote Control Productions: Shalini Singh<br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer: Cynthia Park<br>Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica CA<br>Music Clearances: Jessica Dolingerthats true
Can't think of a more meaningless and laughable award than the Oscar.an oscar for this one? nahh...<br>maybe he gets a nomination for dune or bondMaybe WW1984damn it would be kinda awesome and hilarious if Lorne Balfe got Lorne Balfe’d LOLYeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...
Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photoHah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3.

It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet.

Everyone here gawking at Powell's feet, and I'm not taking away that from them. More power to you guys, I love John Powell too. But, compared to Ottman, Jackman, Zimmer... hell, even Marco Beltrami in the Wolverine films... I don't know. I have the same opinion as CinemaWins about this score. It sounds phoned in at some points.


ThePhantasm2020-11-21 19:53:27
I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2


Macejko2020-11-21 20:10:22

Interesting... A Superman Return's track was included in X3 soundtrack? ahahahah (I'm joking, but track 2 is very similar to Superman's theme).
The whole album is quite good, but in my opinion Powell has to ride a long road before becoming a good composer! "Mediocre" is my opinion about this album.
Kamen & Ottman made better!


Henko2019-09-11 22:03:20
Damn, this is wrong on so many levels


ThePhantasm2019-09-13 20:07:00
The words mediocre is not something you use when talking about this score. Kamen score is good but not on this level, and Ottman doesn't even come close. But that's just my opinion

Hans Zimmer scoring X-Men Dark Phoenix.

Welcome back to Superhero world.


mpolonest123 2018-01-25 22:32:38
Between this and LB doing Pacific Rim, I’m more than happy. I really doubt he’ll use Ottman’s X-theme but hopefully he be as creative here as he was with ASM2!


T-Mann0362018-01-26 01:18:47
I knew that Zimmer isn't gonna retire. His previous pictures, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice were incredible. Welcome back to the Marvel and DC Universe, Hans.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-26 12:36:46
Zimmer retires and unretires almost as much as Hayao Miyazaki!


M2018-01-26 14:56:08
This is going to be something amazing!


DT-20172018-01-26 16:43:31
Makes me wonder if Ottman just refused to do it. Though after his reported experience with BvS, I wonder what made Zimmer change his mind on this one.


Mephariel2018-01-26 18:14:36
Probably a much better script. Kinberg has said that this is a straight up drama/suspense movie. It is completely opposite of movies like BvS and X-Men: Apocalypse.


Radik2018-01-27 09:39:38
Hans said he is willing back to comics genre if the screenplay has its quality.


JBSO992018-01-27 11:46:15
This are great news! I was hoping that the retirement thing was just temporary, and luckily it was. His scores in superhero movies are always fantastic and I cannot wait to hear what he creates in this one.

"Why the producers never remember John Powell?". Is what I question to my self everytime outs a dissappointing superheroe score, like The Avengers by Alan Silvestri, John Powell did this great score for X-Men, and looks like nobody remember it, why John Powell never else did another superhero score (ok, it's Hancock, I know), but Joh Powell can do something else, to part of just excelent score for animated movies


Ds2014-02-01 12:49:00
Maybe they ask him every time and he's the one refusing these projects... He took a lot of time for himself/his family, maybe he's not as much a work-junkie as HZ is :-)

But these are pure speculations, we don't have a clue.

The essential thing is: a lot of people are missing John Powell and would be extremely happy to see him gloriously return. I hope he comes from time to time on this website and see all the love we have for him!

Mike if there's one thing in 2015 i absolutely don't care about, it has to be that f#cking Star Wars movie, including its soundtrack. And i'm already tired of all the hype that's going to come over the next two years :D

I have to say...the "Phoenix Rises" is just too powerful for me to listen to without breaking down with tears in my eyes!!! I know every fan in here would agree with me! I'm not ashamed to admit my personal feelings for this particular score! It's just that every time that I hear "Phoenix Rises", it seems that every core inside my body is forcing its way through the pores of my skin!!! Unbelievably incredible film score by John Powell!!!

From what I've heard, a fair amount of the first half of the film sounds different on the CD release.

The reason behind this was that they had to do some emergency recording sessions to get the music done for the films release.

Powell had more time to work on the CD release, so the overall result, while different, is better.

Jean Grey/Phoenix/Dark Phoenix's theme music for X3 is easily the best not only in this movie but the entire trilogy! Especially the version from Whirlpool of Love, Phoenix Rises and Dark Phoenix's Tragedy.

"La La LaLa Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... LaLaLaaaaaaaaaa.... LaLaLaLaLaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.... DuDu Duuu Duuuuu...
