so...based on what junkie says here, Elfman is basically just rehashing old shit, as well as other people's old shit....Unless you want to say he's taking his Batman theme into a whole different direction that he didn't really have a desire to do before...until now....<br><br>In that case, "whatever" is all I have to say.Nice stuff! I still can't believe this score hasn't gotten a release.That's unfortunate. With this score, I think it's obvious that the majority is Jablonsky, as it has a ton of elements from scores he's composed exclusively, but it would still be nice to know who did what, especially with the first and second films. Not sure why there's rarely any proper additional music credits for a lot of the RCP guys, especially considering Zimmer's credits are almost always complete. <br><br>However that cuesheet of the extended score is very interesting. Hopefully if it leaks, all those cues remain there.Damn that sounds different from Elfman's commentsThe funny thing is an interview he gave 1 months before being replaced... Saying pretty much the opposite of Elfman !<br><br>"Itís a massive undertaking. And I canít say anything about Justice League specifically, but Iíll tell you this, and this was exactly the same experience that Hans and I had when we did work together on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Itís like when you see a movie like that, these iconic superhero movies, some of them have a 60 to 80 year legacy, multiple composers had a go at their themes, multiple filmmakers did their version of these charactersóitís very scary. You watch a movie and itís like, ďHoly shit, now I have to come up with something.Ē Youíve got sweaty hands and youíre nervous, and you talk about it over and over againóand I have exactly that relationship with Zack Snyderóand then Zack said, ĒThereís only one thing you can do, and that is embrace this character as if itís your own, keep it close to your musical soul, and just do whatever you feel is the right thing to do for this character.Ē Thatís the only thing we can do. Thatís what all these great directors did back in the day, and thatís what all these great composers did back in the day. It makes no sense for me to do extensive quoting of Hansí score of the really amazing Batmans. It makes no sense for me to quote Superman from John Williams. Because all fantastic composers, they all did the same thing, they did something that was close to their heart, and I have to do exactly the same thing on this movie. You know this is Movie Number 4 that Iím doing with Zack, so you build a friendship and itís built on trust and loyalty. You know how to challenge each other, you know what to expect on the other side, and itís this really open, amazing dialogue about where to take this franchise."
I can confirm that he had already worked on it quite a bit, because he said so in one of his Studio Time episodes.I wouldnít be surprised if he wrote another long sketchbook for it...I honestly have no idea... But I can't believe back in June when he left he hadn't done a bunch of the score already...The thing is with Jablonsky scores composers rarely get cuesheet credits, so you can't really draw conclusions out of it. Here's a small part of the cuesheet :<br><br>QUINTESSA PT 1<br>QUINTESSA PT 2<br>QUINTESSA PT 3 OPTIMUS REDEMPTION<br>KNIGHTED<br>WE HAVE TO GO ZERO GRAVITY<br><br>OPENING BATTLE<br>MERLIN<br>MERLIN GETS THE STAFF - BATTLE WON<br>TROUBLED TIMES<br>CADE DRIVING - AMULET<br>WE HUNT - DECEPTICONS HUNT<br>KEEP A SECRET - VIV ARRIVES CASTLE FOLGEN<br>WITWICCANS<br>ROUNDTABLE ORGAN SOURCE<br>COGMAN CHOIR<br>STAFF<br>BETTER GET CRACKING<br>PLANETARY VAMPIRISM<br>TOO OLD<br>SUBMARINE<br>TWO MOONS<br>MERLIN'S TOMB<br>SPACE STATION<br>CLAIM THE STAFF<br>SHIP RISE<br>YOUR VOICE<br>SOLDIERS TAKE POSITION - BURTON DIES<br>FALL AND GRAB<br>ENDINGrumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it
Any chance of proper artist credits for this score?@Hybrid <br><br>Did Tom actually record anything for the film or did he just do demos?It's the same 24 tracks divided on two CDs. I'm truly hoping for a nice numbered digipak that separates the limited editions from the regular release otherwise it would be quite a crappy move from the record label. <br><br>"Joss said, ĎLetís do it [Batmanís theme] on the nose. Fans love this kind of stuff.í" Why do you have to ruin everything, Joss?This film is atrocious. Suicide Squad was a mess but that film was forgivable. What WB decided to with JL is embarrassing, to say the least. Forcing Zack to change the tone and add forced childish humor and quips, demanding a less than 2-hour runtime, extensive reshoots with Whedon in charge... wtf were they thinking?<br><br>It's interesting to note that Zack hasn't even seen this abomination yet.
Andrew loaded some cues to the movie "The Last Face" up on his soundcloud page, go & check it :)<br><br>soundcloud.com/andrewkawczynski/sets/the-last-faceNice!<br>What about the 2nd CD?Watched this movie yesterday and it didn't make the score any better. It's not the worst thing I've ever heard but after what we got with MoS & BvS it's just disappointing. There's so much missed opportunities. Both the movie and the score had so much potential but it's just flat. <br><br>The problem isn't just Elfman or Whedon, it's WB! They wanted the change in direction and that's really sad.The movie itself is bad on so many levels and adding to that in many scenes I was shaking my head as I was hearing a completely different score in my mind, but there it was, something which took me out of the movie. Disappointed.<br><br>Do you think Whedon would've convinced the producers to replace the composer(s) if Hans was scoring this along with Junkie? I can't imagine what the uproar it would've created.Yes they did.<br><br>That Phantom Stache is in 90% of the Cavill shots...<br><br><br>Warner/DC died and chose Whedon to nail the coffin...<br><br><br>I hope like Superman 2, that one day, we'll get the "Donner's Cut" of this movie as it was supposed to be, because I think it was almost finished (even the score I'm sure Tom had written a good part of it).

MOVIESCORE MEDIA/KRONOS RECORDS RELEASES TWO SCORES BY 'MORTAL INSTRUMENTS' COMPOSER ATLI ÷RVARSSON


MovieScore Media/Kronos Records will release two new CDs featuring new film scores by composer Atli ÷rvarsson whose other current films include The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, based on the bestselling books by Cassandra Clare, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

MovieScore Media/Kronos Records' first release with the composer will be David M. Rosenthalís A Single Shot (2013), which opens theatrically in the USA on September 20, 2013, distributed by Well Go. The film stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy and Ted Levine. Based on the novel by Matthew F. Jones, A Single Shot tells the story of John Moss (Rockwell), a hunter whose life goes to hell after killing a girl during a hunting accident. Recorded with a chamber group of musicians from the London Metropolitan Orchestra, ÷rvarssonís music provides low-key suspense for the deadly game of cat-and-mouse between John Moss and his pursuers. The album will feature a special suite featuring the complex atonal and aleatoric parts of the score entitled "The John Moon Variations".

The second release will be the score to the Czech/Slovakian co-production Colette (2013), Milan Cieslarís powerful screen adaptation of A Girl from Antwerp, a novel by Pulitzer Prize nominated author Arnoöt Lustig. Based on the writerís own experiences of several escape attempts from the hell of Auschwitz, the film follows the story of Vili, a Holocaust survivor who shares his memories of Colette, a Belgian Jewess who happened to be his first true love. Elegant and tragic like the main character, ÷rvarssonís score for Colette highlights the composerís more lyrical side we rarely get to hear in his more mainstream commissions. Colette opens theatrically in the Czech Republic on September 12, 2013, and is expected to get international distribution later in the year.

Both albums will be released in September 2013. The digital release date for A Single Shot is September 17, 2013, followed by a physical release date of September 24, 2013. The digital release date for Colette is September 10, 2013, followed by a physical release date of October 8, 2013.
