When will this tracklist be leaked?I heard and thought that Zimmer stopt scoring superhero movies (including Justice League and what comes after) because it has taken 13 years of his life and he wanted to do something elseWere the two men no longer talking or did Zimmer anticipate Snyder's departure as he did in Pirates?@Olive: Rumors says Zimmer didn't want compose Justice League because of Snyder, and left behind JunkieI agree that Elfman's theme fits into Nolan's films as long as they are adapted to them. However, I think the way things have gone was not bad. TDK trilogy was marked as a project fruit of Nolan's unique vision. Although the themes do not respect the orchestral tradition are more memorable than those composed for more than half of the films of heroes of the last 25 years.Zimmer's entry into the genre can be interpreted as a breath of fresh air in a saturated marketplace at the time. But I agree that the lack of originality these days falls on Zimmer and his company and that the goal of it goes far beyond bringing talents to light.Now we need something new, again.
@Hybrid any news on Season 2 soundtrack release?Of cause Balfe worked on it !!! His whole team are credited !!!!!!!Honestly, the purpose of RCP is essentially to take Zimmer's style and make it widespread for use...WB not using ANY RCP to score this seems to have been deliberate, as there's literally no reason it couldn't be done.^ hahaha :D<br><br>I think you're forgetting that Balfe also ghostwrote The Lord of the Rings?They're starting to send screeners. Finger crossed for the FYC :D
The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmerís Superman theme, something we havenít heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer

Wow...really what I wasn't expecting...I'll pass.

I love them, thanks!


KT Koskela2015-07-22 11:52:17
While I wish Jackman and Columbus'd gone the Gremlins route and made this an 80s-style orchestra/synth hybrid funfest, I'm happy with what I'm hearing.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 9 || 2015-07-16 02:22:12
(sighs) When do you think we'll be getting some samples of this score?


Russel2015-07-17 04:57:49
We got some today, courtesy of Varese Sarabane's YouTube channel!


KT Koskela2015-07-17 15:29:31
Y'sure? Could you try to put up someway to the link?


KT Koskela2015-07-17 15:58:03
Never mind, I found the link. Thanks!


Russel2015-07-17 17:42:51
Links not allowed on here, I think. Glad you found it!


Hybrid Soldier2015-07-17 18:45:58
Illegal links are...


For the rest it's fine if it's relevant... :)


meta2015-07-17 22:48:45
wasnt what i was hoping to hear...sounds more swashbuckly than video gamey....


Anonymous2015-07-17 23:04:02
Excuse me but where is the link?


Boldizar 2015-07-18 06:38:20
My thoughts exactly. For a movie about video games this score sample sure sounds like a generic 90s adventure film.


meta2015-07-19 04:58:01
and the track lengths are even shorter...oy vey

It's a private link for now, but on type in YouTube's address and add watch?v=CmS3YAzyWj4 after the slash.

Every time I see a trailer for this movie I get annoyed, because the premise is so stupidly awesome and parts of it look really cool...but I just can't STAND Adam Sandler or pretty much anything he's associated with. Peter Dinklage must owe someone money or somethign.

Henry Jackman's a good choice for this, though, looking forward to hearing more Wreck-it Ralph 8-bit-orchestral-action fusion stuff.


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-28 21:44:16
Totally agree Ed, 100%...

I will see this film... But I just CAN'T with Adam Sandler... I just hope he's buried under the rest in this film... lol


Kusi2015-06-28 22:18:28
I agree with you about Sandler :-S but I'll have to watch this film too. One argument: The score and the other is the topic. I've grown up with this games and I'm still loving Nintendo games :)


Brent2015-06-29 07:10:45
I feel like Jackman's career has led up to this. Wreck-It Ralph + Captain America + This is the End = Pixels. Lol.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 3 || 2015-06-28 00:57:48
Yay, details!

Now to wait a long while for a preview track to listen to before the score comes out.


Anonymous2015-06-28 06:09:09
This film had some decent poster artworks. Why the heck did it come down to this artwork for the album?


Hybrid Soldier2015-06-28 10:01:05
Because a cover with people on it means a lot of paperwork... I guess they wanted to avoid that... lol


KT Koskela2015-06-28 17:12:17
And besides, it's the music contained inside the soundtrack that matters, not the cover for the soundtrack.

KT Koskela reply Replies: 0 || 2015-06-17 13:47:08
Awesome. I've been waiting to see if this would be getting a score album.

And from what I've heard of the score, it certainly sounds like a good one to listen to.
