It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsameNo no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?
Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.
LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!
So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?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!

Wow, this score is such a mess, both in film and out. Even moreso than The Lone Ranger. Between the temp tracks and the straight rip offs (Rango Returns which is basically "Parlay" which itself was inspired by Morricone) there is almost nothing original here. That being said, It's still incredibly fun to listen to. The massive amount of co-composers definitely helps.

Also Hybrid, slightly off-topic but did Zimmer have a bad experience on The Lone Ranger? I remember hearing something about that, but wasn't entirely sure (and I honestly love that score)


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-11 20:42:50
No one wants to talk about TLR, not even Verbinski ! lol


mpolonest123 2017-05-11 20:51:57
Lol! I personally didn't find the film that bad, but I guess the production must've been a different story....


Ds2017-05-11 22:16:27
That's a pity because that movie was far from bad. Much better than most of the recent blockbusters in my opinion. Really nothing to be ashamed of.

Levi reply Replies: 0 || 2014-01-01 02:52:44
Something that kinda confuses me: does Hans actually sit down and write the cues WITH people like Geoff Zanelli, or does he just kinda give a layout of the cue and then the other guy goes off and does it on his own?

Areozz reply Replies: 0 || 2013-10-12 17:01:35
Might anyone be able to track down the slate numbers for this set? I already have some of them from when that set of demos surfaced a while back, but there's still a good amount missing.

Thanks for any help!

I'm trying to figure out what other Zimmer work the "Rango Suite" sounds like, but I can't place it. :/


Meta2013-05-31 06:06:25
Broken Arrow, perhaps...Upon listening to Rango it reminded me alt of that score. Particularly the synth banjo/guitar and the harmonica....


MGDrone2013-05-31 18:29:11
As Good As It Gets haha. What do they have in common? Nuthin', but it's still cool to know haha.

Did someone notice Lorne putting a Crysis 2 theme right in the middle of it ? :P


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-13 23:14:26
Not yet. Damnit, too many leaks recently, plus exams, equals not enough time to listen to all these goodies (but apparently enough time to talk about them on the Internet...uhh...)

What cue? :p


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 23:18:53
Rodents Rise !


BTW Lorne didn't do many cues on it, but surely "I'm Going Back" is one of my fav' of the entire score... :)


Prott2013-05-30 23:30:15
Haha, at first I was trying to find the Prophet's theme (wondering how the hell did I manage to miss that one). Then I discovered it's actualy the Alien's theme. :-)
It's a great cue (... too bad this theme is missing from both Rango's and Crysis' OSTs).



Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2013-05-30 12:38:00
2 things about this score.

The Elfman temp cue from The Kingdom was kept in the final film cause HZ & Gore couldn't come up with anything better without just being a poor ripoff. Danny's track was perfect, so they decided to keep it.

Atli Örvarsson & his assistant Dave Fleming have an official "arranger" & "tech advisor" credit, but it's likely they've done nothing on it. Atli started working on it but on his very first cues left the project to do another score. So unless a few arrangements he did were kept, Atli was not involved... But still got credited !

Preacher reply Replies: 6 || 2013-05-13 05:09:45
OK instead of Luring In Jake, I got a track called Here It Comes that runs 5:25. And a track called The Other Side, which isn't on here. What gives? Why do leaked scores never match the tracklists here? How do we know what's what?


Preacher2013-05-13 05:11:34
And We Ride #2 Alternate is like 50 seconds, not 4 mins... *sigh*


Mike2013-05-13 06:10:25
Remember, Preacher, this is not the complete score. It's expanded. That should tell you immediately that some music will be missing. Remember, too, that even if a score is listed as "complete", it might STILL have music missing (such as The Dark Knight Rises).


Preacher2013-05-13 06:32:21
I understand, but the recent leak has different tracks to this edition. One would think they would be the same.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 09:45:03
The We Ride length was my bad (hey, try typing this whole stuff in a row without making a typo, TRY ! :P) !

The Other Side, if you have any little knowledge or interest in Hans Zimmer, you'd just notice it's a source cue taken from The Weatherman.


Preacher2013-05-13 10:01:06
Thanks for that - I don't know the Weatherman score.
What about Here It Comes/It's A Miracle? Are they the same?


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 10:02:12
Yeah I use official cue sheet titles... :)
