Yep, it's happening. Jackman is not returning for the sequel, Master of Boring is onboard instead.

Listen to Jack The Giant Slayer and then write Master of Boring, I dare you.
tomPoland: I did, in fact, listen to it. And I'm keeping my opinion. I don't like Ottman's music.

I like Ottman (Specially Jack the Giant Slayer, a such wonderful score), but i think, they keep Jackman for this
Jackman is better then Ottman
Jackman was good choice for first class because of good result. Nice themes and such, and it fits for the past of X-men, but bringing ottman back?? This is good news indeed. At first I didn't like his music really but I expanded my tastes, and X2 is now one of my favorites! :) I'm actually very glad they gave the job to him instead for DOFP. I look forward to this!
Fantastic news, Ottman is an incredibly talented man and hix X2 score is miles ahead of First Class. Jack the Giant Slayer is one of the strongest scores of the year so far btw.
There's a really beautiful piece of music when Mystique shows herself for the first time in the kitchen. It's not on the soundtrack, will it possibly be available for purchase at some point?
If you know where to look Miss C, the complete score has just been posted. It's the isolated score ripped from the Blu-ray as mentioned in the posts below this one
There's no track titles on these tracks. Can someone post the titles?
01 Poland, 1944 - 0:54 02 The Little Mutant - 1:35 03 Move The Coin - 1:19 04 Pain and Anger - 2:43 05 Mystique - 2:24 06 Not That Sort of Bank - 1:50 07 Jupiter Missiles In Turkey / Frankenstein's Monster - 6:57 08 Does Mutants Really Exist? - 1:43 09 The Granade - 0:31 10 What About This Magic Trick? - 0:53 11 Boat's Fight - 5:02 12 The New Mutants Division Of C.I.A. - 1:10 13 Meeting Hanck / What Am I Thinking? - 2:44 14 Cerebro - 5:13 15 We Are The Atom's Sons - 1:39 16 Alex - 1:21 17 Into The Van - 1:19 18 Russian Military Retreat - 6:10 19 Where Are The Mutants? - 3:32 20 Rise Up to Rule - 3:35 21 Missiles In Cuba - 0:31 22 A War Against Who? - 4:07 23 X-Taining - 5:24 24 Rage and Serenity - 2:12 25 The World Is Ready For A War - 0:59 26 To Beast or Not to Beast - 2:18 27 The Beast - 2:37 28 The True Raven - 1:14 29 X-Team / Let Battle Commence - 9:37 30 Sub Lift - 2:20 31 Final Confrontation / Mutant and Proud / X-Men - 19:58 32 Magneto - 2:54 33 End Credits - 3:23
Thank you. It helped alot.
08 Does Mutants Really Exist? - 1:43 should be Do Mutants Really Exist?
Not only is Jackman Doing Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter on the 22nd. But now he's doing G.I.Joe Retaliation on the 29th a week later!!!! Cant wait. Two kick ass scores from Jackman in back to back weeks!
Anyone knows if the music played in the beginning of the movie with the young magneto in the nazi's field is a temp track from michael kamen´s first x-men score or jackman use kamen's theme with new arrangements??
I's Michael Kamen's cue. Vaughn makes a connection with the first X-Men movie on reshoot the nazi camp scene with new actors, but with the same music and photography ;)
Of course that it's not a Powell's masterpiece but it's pretty decent. The main theme - which I'll say belongs to the "X-Men" and Xavier - is amazing. Actually, I had goosebumps when I heard it.
The "Magneto" theme reminds me something. But it sounds amazing. Haven't seen the movie yet but I can picture Michael Fassbender clearly in my head when I listen to track 20.
"True Colours" reminds me of "Clash of the Titans" as someone mentioned before. So I agree with you all concerning that.
There is a "Kick-Ass" vibe in it as Sam pointed out. Which is a good thing 'cause I really enjoyed "Kick-Ass" - though it was written with other names.
The more calm melody which you can listen in "Rage and Serenity" is very beautiful. A love theme?! At least it has all the love and romance thing around it.
Overall I'm not disappointed with this score. Henry Jackman seems to be a good composer - I only know "Kick-Ass" and "Henri 4" and both are pretty good.
From the "X-Men" franchise, this one, some melodies in "Wolverine" and "The Last Stand" are the ones I like. "X-Men" and "X-Men 2" are pretty lame (except the main theme in X-Men 2 which is amazing).
Actually believe it or not but this score is about the best X Men score Ive ever heard. Second to this is Xmen 3...Third to this would be X2's main theme...The rest of the scores just meander alot, which is signature of Bryan Singer's meandering storylines.
I dunno, when I think of Xmen, I think of action music...bringing Powell, Gregson-Williams and now Jackman into the mix is a godsend. (although Gregson Williams work on Wolverine was fairly lazy and uninspiring IMO)
Not that the Xmen need to be a Remote Control staple, but cmon...for all the work that Ottman and Kamen did on the last scores, you gotta admit by comparison they are seriously lacking.
All regards to Kamen and Ottman, but I just dont picture a standard classical music backdrop with the Xmen. I picture guitar riffs and action synth...Zimmer style.
I mean we are dealing with a bunch of mutant superheroes running around beating the crap out of each other...It requires video game music.
Everything you wrote, flacka, is exactly what I think.
Couldn't agree more :P
For me, the Magneto's Theme reminds me the cue "Dream Is Collapsing" from Inception. The two themes are very similar.
@ KaijusRoyaume After reading your comment I hear "Dream Is Collapsing" and then it stroke me that you're right!
Still, it wasn't that song. It reminds me something different from Hans Zimmer.
But it's cool... Jakcman was Zimmer apprentice so I guess it's normal to hear bits similar to his master's work just like Miles said!
I have already seen the movie and it was amazing. The soundtrack was even more amazing with the movie! It gave it a complete different essence. Loved it!
I agree with Sabrina. It's not on the same epic level as Powell's Last Stand (although cues like "First Class" and "Sub Lift" come pretty darn close), but it is a very fun ride. I waited until the movie to hear the score, and it meshed pretty well with the onscreen action. I was a little let down that there wasn't more of the music from the final battle, but I really like what Henry Jackman has done here. Some parts even sound like something Powell himself might have written, and the rest adapts some Zimmer standbys (string progressions, horns) without being a carbon copy. A solid blockbuster score; I look forward to hearing more of Jackman's work in the future!
What's funny about the team who did it is that John Ashton Thomas, orchestrator here, wrote additional music for The Last Stand, and Chris Willis, who wrote add. music here, also wrote add. music for Wolverine ! :P
I wonder if Chris Willis worked on "Let Battle Commence," considering the beginning sounds straight out of Wolverine :D
Is 14 - True Colors by Dom Lewis? Because the minute I heard it, all I could think of was Clash of the Titans... :D
I think it's Dom Lewis. The theme is the same.
Where's the good stuff!!!?
Just listened to the full score and it is really crap! No guts, no originality and no glory. Sounds like free temp music tv stations buy to put on crappy adverts. Very disappointed, but not surprised with what I heard.
It has a theme... thing the others didn't had, at least a consistent theme!
It's an action score filled with excitement! Probably one of the best actions score of this year so far. It has a Kick-Ass vibe to it as well. It's also addictive!
I like it!
PS: Yes, I also thought about "Clash of the Titans" when I heard "True Colours". I thought it had just been me!
