More than Zimmer?I honestly commend what Steve Jablonsky composed for the 2nd movie but I really have to say that Brian Tyler's theme was more heroic for me and I'm a big fan of orchestral music that's why I wanted to hear Tyler's Ninja turtles theme again.Maulís Call, Empire Recruitment, End Credits Suite, etc. <br><br>This release looks amazing! :Othis is awesome!!!!Pemberton is probably the most obvious choice right now. I would definitely love to see Pemberton score this one
Yep, I received the news too.<br>Antwerp Sportpaleis is now scheduled on 23rd February 2022, a Wednesday !<br>Tour postponed to 2022 :'(Asides, Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy, dosen't sound like the two Jumanji written by Jackman, by anymeans, and in prefer those two scores over his Uncharted material, altough i like both.If you want a Silvestrian-type of action... Edmonson's action writting in the three Uncharted are terrific, specially Among the Thieves and Drake's Deception.i think Uncharted 4 and 2 have the best score. U2 is amazing in all regards but I hope Henry does the movie cause he's better at writing action music
If is Paramount, expect a digital release, but this people is certainly very difficult to guess...A exclusive clip from the film where some of Zimmer's score can be heard   https://youtu.be/EucuM3EuUJA?t=238<br><br>Loving the short synth part at the very startIt sounds a JP theme. But also sounds like HZ did arrangements of it. The beginning of "shifu's end" kind of sounds like one.  The HZ/Jackman cues for the "splits" and "battle for the scroll" which use it are good, fun cues - but they're kind of awkward and stop/start compared to JP's smoother, more confident arrangements. And they notably don't use the whole theme only fragmented bits where as the JP/Smith cues "prison", "the bridge", "shifu's end" make use of the entire theme and sound more comfortable with the frenetic orchestra material. Just my opinion though.<br>Jungleland is getting released in cinemas and on streaming Nov. 6 and 10 respectively. I hope Lorne's score gets a release alongside it, as the film sounds like it has some good scoring potential.Well, the two scores by Jackman are good, neither as good as Edmonson's previous work in the franchise, if Naughty Dog have to choose a composer, Edmonson is my choice.<br><br>As for comparations with Tom's Tomb Raider, remember, this franchise is a more classical adventure than a survival action.
If he's one of Jackman's best,I hope naughty dog &#8203;&#8203;will hire him again. I just hope that the film does not present a score as loose as Tom's tomb raidervery excited!!!<br>@hybrid theme by hans and the rest david? :PThe soundtrack to Uncharted 4 in my opinion is one of the best Henry has done along with first class. I hope and pray he does the movie although I have no hope for that film. But unfortunately the director likes to work with Ludwig so I donít think Henry will do it. But I pray he doesMilan Records is going to release it, they said it in his Twitter.But Rupert's Scores are always good!

Who thinks COD Ghosts will be composed by an RCP member?


Mike2013-05-22 08:57:52
Well, two of the Infinity Ward games have been (Harry Gregson Williams and Steve Barton for MW1 and Lorne Balfe and Hans Zimmer for MW2), so I wouldn't be surprised. But there's no way of knowing right now. And besides, MW3 was done by Brian Tyler, not someone from RCP. Either way, I bet a prolific composer will be hired. With the exception of World at War and Black Ops, Hollywood composers have been hired for every COD game since #4.

Lucius reply Replies: 3 || 2013-05-16 21:35:16
Can anyone tell me what the main theme is, please? It credits Zimmer with the main theme, but from tracklisting there is no discernible such thing.


Aragorn2013-05-16 21:39:20
Pretty sure it's the Opening Titles.

I wish Brian Tyler had incorporated the themes from COD4/MW2 in some way. I liked the scores to all three games overall but there wasn't any continuity. Although I must say I thought they got worse as they went. COD4 sounded dark, suspenseful, and serious, MW2 sounded more movie-ish but still epic, and MW3 sounded too "heroic"--it made it feel more like an action film than war. Not that there's not a place for heroism, but IMO it was slightly overdone in the third one.


Mike2013-05-13 06:27:41
I'm inclined to agree with this. I don't know if the themes from the other two games, or a hybrid of them, would have worked, but I do think the score sounded like a "typical" modern action film (does anyone else think of Transformers when hearing the Modern Warfare 3 theme?). Oh, and let's not forget the appearance of the Bourne theme in the "Return to Sender" mission! :P Don't get me wrong, I do like the score, but if you've heard a modern action score, you've heard MW3.

I wish Chain of Command were the music when you get caught in Cliffhanger rather than the OpFor spawn theme. They sound different and the Cliffhanger version is way cooler.

Mr. Fate2012-01-03 21:57:42
If you scroll down for a little bit you should come across a post made by Bondo that lists the credits for each track. However, it sounds like it's just what Bondo has figured--it might not be official.

Also, I think Noah Sorota may have some Modern Warfare tracks on his website (which, of course, would mean those are the ones he worked on). I don't know about the other composers though.


Bondo2012-01-04 00:28:41
My notes are based on composer interviews and what is available on their official sites. So probably 95% accurate

Trent Easton Navarro2011-11-08 13:35:38
Listening to it now. It's better than the samples had me believe. But it's still a shame that such a talented composer like Tyler is forced to write in the RC mode. Tyler is way more talented than this.


Khun2011-11-08 16:55:32
The score for MW3 is very 'Tyler' for me, not so RC. I can feel THE FAST & THE FURIOUS and RAMBO in it and it's still highly enjoyable. The main theme in "Call Of Duty: MW3" is epic catchy so far. "I Stand Alone", "Battle For New York", "Paris Siege", and "First Contact" are also my favorite tracks.

YES!!! Brian Tyler composed the Score for Modern Warfare 3... He is so much better than Remote Control Composers.


Papapalpatine772011-10-06 03:26:32
In your opinion he is


TIENVIELEN2011-10-06 16:57:27
RC Composers are not creative. stolen from another composers or from hans zimmmer. hans zimmer copied himself.


Papapalpatine772011-10-06 17:41:29
Omm......then why are so many RCP scores sought-after? The Dark Knight, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean,, Transformers, The Lion King, Crimson Tide, King Kong......the list goes on. Those are just off the top of my head.


cheesy2011-10-06 18:45:54
I think there's a big difference between "creativity" and "innovation". Honestly, I personally think Zimmer's protegees could work on the latter. It's not a matter of being creative, it's a matter of coming up with their own styles and ideas. Balfe, Djawadi, Badelt; they're all excellent composers, no doubt about that, but there is room for innovation with their solo projects. i.e., they don't have to make everything sound exactly like something HZ himself would write. I'm not saying I have a problem there, I mean, if it ain't broke don't fix it, and I certainly don't think it's broken. But I can feasibly see where you're coming from.

Now, the whole "mass-collaboration" thing may screw that up a bit, but I guess that's why I always think of Remote Control Productions as a mass amount of composers working as one. Like gears in a clock, to be cliche. Hans could do it all by himself, no doubt, but I respect his ideals regarding music being a collaborative process. So I think they all work congruent to one another on purpose, to keep continuity in the style for a film score.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-11-02 00:25:16
"Omm......then why are so many RCP scores sought-after?"

Same reason why McDonalds is so popular. It's easy, gives you instant satisfaction, and when in the mood there is nothing like it. But you'll always regret it after 30 minutes ;)

And King Kong is not a RCP score. Zimmer and JNH may be friends, but that doesn't make him part of the studio. The minions can only dream of being as talented as Howard :)

I highly recommend RCP fans check this out - as it has musical continuity with Gregson-Williams/Barton's Modern Warfare & Zimmer/Balfe/Metzger's Modern Warfare 2.

The end credits just owns about 1/2 of the previous score.

I would not call it bad news for Brian Tyler scoring the next MW game.


Khun2011-09-15 07:38:27
Brian Tyler has always been a good choice for action/thriler genre. Though his scores can be both great and just okay, they never go bad for me. I assume there will be some sort of RAMBO, THE EXPENDABLES and maybe BATTLE: LOS ANGELES in it but I strongly believe he can do much better than Sean Murray.


Ele2011-09-15 12:44:07
One of the gameplay trailers had music from Brian Tyler. And after what I've heard, I'm really satisfied. I believe Brian can deliver as good music as Balfe did.

Though I agree Brian Tyler is a great choice.


Tim2011-06-07 16:43:46
h t t p://w w w.youtube.com/watch?v=eabDmJMC0tg - this is a live gameplay demonstration of MW3. you hear in some parts cues from both MW2 and MW2 for demonstration purposes. but from 6:44 till the end (during the awesome boat ride on Hudson River) you'll be note a new cue which sounds very much like Brian Tyler (pretty much like Rambo and Battle LA)!


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-07 17:11:23

Hard to hear the music due to all the sound effects but it indeed sounded very Tyler-esque.

Slightly OT: the game looks pretty cool, although really over the top.
