Several clips of the film are on YT. With some music. Sounds like 90's score from HZ. Too bad the directing seems to come from an age movies didn't exist...No. It’s a boys choir. S&K bros is a girl’s choirSeems like Scala & Kolacny Brothers.In what way is it "obvious", exactly, that Djawadi had more influence on that Training cue than Zimmer? It's basically just a statement of Zimmer's theme, and doesn't really sound notably "Djawadi-esque" to me in any way.Thanks for the credits update
A bit of who did what...Lorne also confirmed that he took charge of Mr.Charles, and without saying that Lorne was on the good side of Score in general, so his influence was substantially high.Hybrid confirmed that training is composed by Ramin and Hans and it is obvious that Ramin's influence is superior to that of Hans.are we expecting the score for dark phoenix to be released in a week or so, if the movie itself drops early june?Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.
I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great jobBob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is BalfeI hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes. Just a few<br>Batman Begins-The Training<br>TDK- Joker crash the party, Gordon's speech and ending<br>Inception - Time, Mr.Charles, <br>TKDR - the climb, imagine the fire and orphan<br>Interstellar-Stay, Docking, coward, mountain<br>Dunkirk - well the entire movieJustin Hurwitz I can see. I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.
Interesting news. <br><br>Geoff Zanelli is one of those composers who I’ve loved his additional music over his solo efforts, Pirates 5 excluded. I hope he gets a chance to write some great fantasy music for this, regardless if he reuses JNH’s themes or not.I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.<br><br>I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".<br><br>Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.*3 thingsSure, but there's two things to consider. <br>1). Pirates has such an iconic sound that it'd be really stupid for them to suddenly abandon it at #5. Especially when we hired the guy who has worked on the previous 4. 2). Maleficent, as successful as it was to warrant a sequel, isn't quite as well known in the score department, despite being well received by those who have heard it. 3). Because Zanelli worked on all Pirates, he had enough familiarity with the sounds and motifs that he knew where to go once he led the ship. In Maleficent's case, he's taking over from a previous composer, and is working with a director who likely only knows his work on POTC5. As such, there's no knowing yet if he might be compelled to continue on from JNH, or if it's decided he just does his own thing.<br><br>I'm happy that Geoff at the very least has a safe career at Disney, considering two of their recent live action successes has had him involved. However, considering I hear his recently work hasn't been his best, JNH likely would've benefited from returning to a world that had some of his best material after he wasn't given the opportunity to do so with Glass. As such, it really is a severely missed opportunity, even if newer blood is getting more opportunities.

This Soundtrack should be way more popular. It's so good! It's probably because they movie sucked so bad.

Yeah this one tends to get lost in the shuffle. A shame, it's an absolutely wonderful score.

Maybe James Newton Howard is on it, due to the fact that direcor Tony Gilroy worked with him on all his previous projects.

Who is the composer of Upcoming Bourne film?

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-08 00:00:00
Alan Silvestri is doing Captain America. It's been confirmed on his Facebook page.

And thank God Powell didn't do The Smurfs! He has had enough bad films on his resume, he doesn't need new ones....

I heard that John Powell was busy with the 5 Soundtracks that he had been asked to do. For that reason it has not done either Wiinie the Pooh, the Smurfs or Captain America.
Disney and DreamWorks are now struggling to John Powell.!!

@ *the nameless guy*:
really?! neither imdb nor giacchino's official page confirms that. well, there isn't any composer confirmed, yet. I would be as delighted if Giacchino score it as Powell would, anyway :)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-07 00:00:00
Torque, it's neither Powell or Silvestri. Michael Giacchino will score Captain America.

I just found this track on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCh536cpv8E

I think that was a combination of Mars Needs moms and mars needs moms credits suite. Well,although i love the main theme( you done it again powell !!), but there are still many similarities from Powell' other soundtracks that i can found.( Buck winning theme in Ice age 3( this theme can be heard clearly), Some theme from HTTYD, and Ice age 3 credits theme itself). But, still good though.

King Powell!

aldan reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
From the sample, i can conclude that:

-Abduction/trashworld: sounded like Paycheck, Bolt, Hancock, and The bourne soundtrack.
-Enjoy the ride: sounded like a piece from ice age 3, when Buck saved Sid from lava fall.
-Mars needs moms: abstract, can't be defined.
-Gribble's plan: sounded like antz( that whistle part), paycheck, and bolt.
-Milo escapes: sounded exciting, but still has a paycheck theme in it.
-Gribble's plan: abstract, but touching.
-To the surface: Sounded like HTTYD, very much, with a little improvement in it, before it turned into that Paycheck-ish action track.
-to the sacrifice: well, good enough
-transformation: original, well done.
-mars needs moms credits suite: The best of them all. I think this is the main theme.
-martian mambo: sounded like that sid-clan song from ice age 2.

No, powell. You started to act like zimmer. But, still good nonetheless. i hope you can do better on Rio.
But, you're still the man.

@Aldan

The reason why it sounds similar to other Powell stuff its because this is a replacement score. Originally, Hans Zimmer was going to score the movie and he left or was rejected, so they brought in John. And I imagine that with the rush they tracked the movie with previous Powell music.

However, the quality of the orchestra sounds amazing. Can't wait!

John: Hans.. rejected? No way! :-)
It was announced (John Powell scoring this) a long time ago (more than half a year).

Andrew reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-01 00:00:00
I don't think Zimmer was rejected. He probably felt that this film is too similar in its musical needs to Megamind. He probably passed it to Powell.

And regarding the similar motifs. I think there is only so much innovation you can come up with, once you score a fair amount of movies of the same genre.

I cannot help but wonder what Powell would have done for a concept like Captain America...

Only for digital download... no Cd for this one, right dudes??

John reply Replies: 0 || 2011-02-28 00:00:00
The samples sound extremly good, particularly the string writing. However, I'm hearing too close similiarities to Hancock, Dragon and Ice Age 2.

Despite that, it sounds very very promising!
