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 Zimmer’s Superman theme, something we haven’t 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
@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?Ghost in a thing that doesn't have life but does
Which score would that be?Seeing as how Lorne Balfe “leaked” his own score, I wonder if Tom could easily do the same?Haha - honestly though, before I realized this I felt Jablonsky didn't really bind the score together that well with themes and motifs. This is a pretty cool connection and I'm glad he made it.Almost like this was a film score or something! ;)I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

Who knows what the tracks worked on Mark Mancina, Noah Sorota and Atli Örvarsson?


Mr. Fate2012-01-03 21:57:42
If you scroll down for a little bit you should come across a post made by Bondo that lists the credits for each track. However, it sounds like it's just what Bondo has figured--it might not be official.

Also, I think Noah Sorota may have some Modern Warfare tracks on his website (which, of course, would mean those are the ones he worked on). I don't know about the other composers though.


Bondo2012-01-04 00:28:41
My notes are based on composer interviews and what is available on their official sites. So probably 95% accurate

The score is now available on iTunes and Amazon.

Trent Easton Navarro2011-11-08 13:35:38
Listening to it now. It's better than the samples had me believe. But it's still a shame that such a talented composer like Tyler is forced to write in the RC mode. Tyler is way more talented than this.


Khun2011-11-08 16:55:32
The score for MW3 is very 'Tyler' for me, not so RC. I can feel THE FAST & THE FURIOUS and RAMBO in it and it's still highly enjoyable. The main theme in "Call Of Duty: MW3" is epic catchy so far. "I Stand Alone", "Battle For New York", "Paris Siege", and "First Contact" are also my favorite tracks.

YES!!! Brian Tyler composed the Score for Modern Warfare 3... He is so much better than Remote Control Composers.


Papapalpatine772011-10-06 03:26:32
In your opinion he is


TIENVIELEN2011-10-06 16:57:27
RC Composers are not creative. stolen from another composers or from hans zimmmer. hans zimmer copied himself.


Papapalpatine772011-10-06 17:41:29
Omm......then why are so many RCP scores sought-after? The Dark Knight, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean,, Transformers, The Lion King, Crimson Tide, King Kong......the list goes on. Those are just off the top of my head.


cheesy2011-10-06 18:45:54
I think there's a big difference between "creativity" and "innovation". Honestly, I personally think Zimmer's protegees could work on the latter. It's not a matter of being creative, it's a matter of coming up with their own styles and ideas. Balfe, Djawadi, Badelt; they're all excellent composers, no doubt about that, but there is room for innovation with their solo projects. i.e., they don't have to make everything sound exactly like something HZ himself would write. I'm not saying I have a problem there, I mean, if it ain't broke don't fix it, and I certainly don't think it's broken. But I can feasibly see where you're coming from.

Now, the whole "mass-collaboration" thing may screw that up a bit, but I guess that's why I always think of Remote Control Productions as a mass amount of composers working as one. Like gears in a clock, to be cliche. Hans could do it all by himself, no doubt, but I respect his ideals regarding music being a collaborative process. So I think they all work congruent to one another on purpose, to keep continuity in the style for a film score.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-11-02 00:25:16
"Omm......then why are so many RCP scores sought-after?"

Same reason why McDonalds is so popular. It's easy, gives you instant satisfaction, and when in the mood there is nothing like it. But you'll always regret it after 30 minutes ;)

And King Kong is not a RCP score. Zimmer and JNH may be friends, but that doesn't make him part of the studio. The minions can only dream of being as talented as Howard :)

I highly recommend RCP fans check this out - as it has musical continuity with Gregson-Williams/Barton's Modern Warfare & Zimmer/Balfe/Metzger's Modern Warfare 2.

The end credits just owns about 1/2 of the previous score.

Bad news... Brian Tyler will be composing the video game scores for Call of Duty: MW3 (Modern Warfare 3).


cheesy2011-09-14 04:46:04
...whoops. Maybe I should've scrolled down a little further first lol sorry. But it could be worse... I was afraid I'd hear the name "Sean Murray" again... *shudders*


Levente2011-09-14 13:17:17
I would not call it bad news for Brian Tyler scoring the next MW game.


Khun2011-09-15 07:38:27
Brian Tyler has always been a good choice for action/thriler genre. Though his scores can be both great and just okay, they never go bad for me. I assume there will be some sort of RAMBO, THE EXPENDABLES and maybe BATTLE: LOS ANGELES in it but I strongly believe he can do much better than Sean Murray.


Ele2011-09-15 12:44:07
One of the gameplay trailers had music from Brian Tyler. And after what I've heard, I'm really satisfied. I believe Brian can deliver as good music as Balfe did.

Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-05 23:07:39
@ Tim

I've also heard the rumor Brian Tyler is scoring the 3th MW, but never anything official. Would be cool if Tyler got the gig. He's probably the best composer around these days.

Agreed. One of my fav composers. He did an awesome job on Lego Universe. :)


Alex2011-06-07 08:43:18
Hybrid - can you ask anyone at RCP whether they are scoring MW3 or not.

So - who is definitvely scoring Modern Warfare 3.

Though I agree Brian Tyler is a great choice.


Tim2011-06-07 16:43:46
h t t p://w w w.youtube.com/watch?v=eabDmJMC0tg - this is a live gameplay demonstration of MW3. you hear in some parts cues from both MW2 and MW2 for demonstration purposes. but from 6:44 till the end (during the awesome boat ride on Hudson River) you'll be note a new cue which sounds very much like Brian Tyler (pretty much like Rambo and Battle LA)!


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-07 17:11:23
@ Tim

Hard to hear the music due to all the sound effects but it indeed sounded very Tyler-esque.

Slightly OT: the game looks pretty cool, although really over the top.


Trent Easton Navarro2011-06-08 01:48:56
According to Keith Power, one of Brian Tyler's arrangers, Tyler is indeed scoring MW3. Awesome!


Ele2011-06-08 08:19:46
In 8:00 (demo) a really cool cue starts, this is probably the main theme. And yeah, it seems music from MW1 and MW2 will be used as well. Or maybe that was just a temptrack
