I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.
Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent newsNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(Hey, everybody!<br>Did you hear the news?<br>Check this out:<br>https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=962210980613161& id=138474459653488Yes and no.<br><br>If we take into account that King Arthur is reminiscent of Crimson Tide, The Rock, The Peacemaker and Backdraft his contributions also pale because it is fair to say that King Arthur were based with the music of these films.
There's a video on YouTube. The video shows Howard Shore writing and conducting the music for the orchestra. The video also shows Howard Shore and Peter Jackson talking about the score. After that, Peter Jackson rejected the score writing one statement about that saying Howard and he discuss about the music many times, Howard recorded many cues but in the process Peter he wasn´t satisfied about the music. That thing created many discussions, they could not agree in terms of music so Peter fired Howard after that saying he prefered keep Howard as a friend. And then the hobbit came and the rest, well, the relation was not the same. <br><br>So there's like 50 to 70% percent of the music recorded by Howard Shore. He didn't finish the recordings, so, yes, there's a rejected score recorded. And then, James came aboard.Of course he's involved !Finally some news about this movie! I really hope Powell is involved because his scores for the first two moves are fantastic. I love them so much.Well "Prime" for TF2 is part of the main theme "Knights March" from King Arthur which Jablonsky co-composed so I really don't have a problem with a lot of the temps from King Arthur in Transformers. Specifically because Jablonsky did a lot of the main tracks for that score.Yeah, specially the "Prime" track from Transformers 2
Some of Transformers was temped from King Arthur.Thank you :D<br>indeed, Bumblebee has the same vibe with the orchestral and guitar sound, and I guess GoT was temp tooI was at a test screening for RUSH (sitting directly behind Ron Howard and Hans himself!) - and the entire film was heavily temped with Transformers. Specifically "Bumblebee", which opened and closed the film in a very powerful way. There was a lot more transformers throughout. <br><br>Powell's not mentioned in that article at all...but I think we can assume he will indeed be back.Powell is Back!!!<br>-https://www.empireonline.com/movies/train-dragon-hidden-wor ld/train-dragon-3-hidden-world/-

This score is pure awesomeness !

Yeah i agree the movie was casual but if there is one thing that made it rock is the score. So heroic the composer made an amazing work

"Kingsman: The Secret Service", the new movie directed by Matthew Vaughn, will be scored by Henry Jackman & Matt Margeson! Yes!


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-20 21:00:40
Yep !!! :)


Anonymous2014-05-21 13:21:54
More likely Matt Margeson alone.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-21 13:49:03
Absolutely not... Very collaborative this time... ;)


RealFfingMusic2014-05-21 15:27:40
Never contradict Hybrid. Except when he's too convincing.

Terrible score by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margerson, wait for a jewel it's too much after hear Kick-Ass: The Score, but at least, that score have a couple of remarkable themes. On Kick-Ass 2, Jackman and Margerson abuse of the Kick-Ass Theme, and use it for all, exist some good themes, but aren't the enough good like to save this soundtrack of the mediocrity


thejok3rrules2014-02-01 04:20:06
Well, everyone has an opinion... You can say you don't like it, but who are you to say it is not good?


dark prince2014-02-01 04:31:32
You're right, that are my likes XD

thejok3rrules reply Replies: 5 || 2014-01-04 21:22:03
Does anyone know if there's any kind of video or interview of Margesson about this score?


Lambegue2014-01-04 22:05:41
I haven't watched it yet, so I don't know what it's worth, but here :

Hybrid, little Hybrid... Let's not waste time, just give us the credits. Now. Please ;)


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-04 01:25:06
For goodness sakes. Leave off. If Hybrid had anything more specific, he would have told us by now. Sheesh.


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 04:44:16
Are you serious? Did you forget how Hybrid can sometimes be... not nice at all? I like him, but sometimes he doesn't tell us everything....


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-04 18:36:54
The funny think jok3r is that Matthew actually came here and noticed your comments. I told him to come here & answer you directly but he was too shy... :)

Anyway I have nothing more to add, didn't what I say give you all you need ?


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 20:55:53
Really? You gotta be kidding me! How could I contact him?


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 20:57:25
thejok3rrules@hotmail.com is my email adress, so I hope this great composer will talk to me, as, like I said previously, Kick-Ass 2 is my favorite score this year! :D


thejok3rrules2013-10-04 21:02:44
And besides, I would have appreciated more specific details concerning the credits, but thanks anyway, Hybrid!


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-04 21:11:23
More people than you'd think actually take a look around. That's why I just go total "facepalm" when I see some stuff being said around ! :P

Hahaha! Don't worry, I understand xD

thejok3rrules reply Replies: 4 || 2013-10-02 22:41:16
Hybrid, I remember you said once the credits were actually difficult to give... Any new information about that? I just want to know everything from the best score I've heard this year!


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-02 22:45:59
It's mainly Matt. All the new themes are his. Henry was doing Turbo...


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-02 23:32:19
That's interesting because the score sounds totally like Henry Jackman's style. Margeson's only previous score sounded more like a cross between Brian Tyler and Transformers. Maybe that just goes to show how much input Margeson has had on Jackman's recent scores though.

What new themes, though? I didn't hear any...only the main theme carried over from Kick-Ass and that villain theme that's basically an adaptation of 28 Days Later.


Hybrid Soldier2013-10-03 00:06:08
Mindy's theme and the Mofo's theme.


thejok3rrules2013-10-03 02:48:09
Hybrid, any kind of credits to give us? :D

Fantastic score! It works greatly with the picture... and it's much more coherent than the previous one (despite it often references it's predecessor).


thejok3rrules2013-08-27 03:00:52
If there's anything missing, I don't know what it is... Btw, it might be one of the most pleasant score I've heard in years! :D I don't remember the last time I had so much fun listening to music! xD

It looks like "Fatherly Sacrifice" is lifted note by note from the chorale tune that starts around 2m34s of "You're My Hero" from Wreck-It Ralph soundtrack. I wonder if it was a temp-track thing.


KaijuRoyaume2013-08-18 22:22:25
The track "Honor To Serve Him" uses John Murphy's theme for Big Daddy (adapted from 28 weeks later), right ?

Ds reply Replies: 0 || 2013-08-18 13:14:28
This is a cool score. I don't think it tops the 1st one but it's still very good. Margeson tried to keep a tone that's like a mix of Jackman and Murphy's tracks from the 1st movie, that's cool :)

I read somewhere that the physical version will contain "additionnal music not featured in the digital edition". Any info about that?


Hybrid Soldier2013-08-10 15:07:16
This is the tracklist of the LLL release... The digital will have less tracks.


Ds2013-08-10 16:45:51
Thanks. Is the digital release earlier?

There's a very cool sample at the official movie website!

Fine! :)


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 23:28:31
Henry Jackman as "composer"? As opposed to just "main theme"? I thought this was Margeson alone.


Hybrid Soldier2013-06-24 23:30:19
It's... complicated... :)

Henry/Matt is fine... ;)


Edmund Meinerts2013-06-24 23:48:17
These Kick Ass movies seem to specialize in overly confusing composer situations... ^^
