John Powell would be an amazing choice, if only to get him more mainstream exposure. <br><br>The thing is, if you strip away the drums, sound design, and harsh-mixing Tom is a actually a pretty gifted ďclassicalĒ composer imo. His string writing has always impressed me, and seeing his use of woodwinds in Alita definitely proved that he can write outside of the mold Hollywood had put him in post-Mad Max.<br><br>Avatar 2 is most likely going to need a pretty diverse score, if the first one is any indicator. James Horner combined traditional orchestra, tribal drums, ethnic elements, electronics, and masculine action writing. All of which I could see Tom doing quite well.Chrono order goes like this :<br><br>Dublin 1996<br>Driving<br>Deceit<br>Second Warning<br>First Warning<br>Research<br>Conversations<br>The Beating<br>Traynor Lies<br>Never Show Your Fear<br>Preparations<br>The Killing<br>Bad News<br>The Funeral<br>One More Day<br><br>But some tracks have cues edited together, and some titles are not exactly perfect lol...Atli is fine in Iceland, maybe he just doesn't want to look for trouble anymore... :)Lorne did work on this score. At the very end, when the film (and therefore, the score) was getting butchered by editors to shorten it, there was very little time to rework the score to adapt it to the new cut. So Steve called Lorne for help, who agreed but asked not to be credited (his team was, so it kinda defeated the purpose lol)... They didn't do THAT much on the score, but Battlefield is indeed a LB cue (it sounds nothing like SJ).<br><br>Not the first time this happened. Lorne extensively worked on TF1 & 2 (credited), but also helped (uncredited) on TF3 (there again, his assistant back then Andrew K. was credited).Alright, that's ^^ a bit too far, but I agree that there's not enough evidence to really support the theory. The only compositions that seem like Balfe might have had a hand in are the various reprises of "Bumblebee" (aka the Journey theme) that was always rumored to be co-composed by Balfe, and the big choral section in "Your Voice" when the knights begin attacking Optimus, as that is also a progression I associate heavily with Balfe's involvement in the first 2 scores. But that's still not enough to prove that he was involved.<br><br>By the way Bayhem, I don't believe that John Williams or Howard Shore have lied about doing their work by themselves. John Williams has worked with William Ross and probably others, but I don't think they're lying when they say they've done a score themselves. They seem like they can compose on their own just fine.
Yep, if "deserving" existed, Atli would've gotten many more movies than he currently does.Anyone know of a proper chronological listing of this score? I tried cross-referencing it with the expanded listed here and made this:<br><br>01 Dublin, 1996<br>02 <br>03 <br>04 <br>05 Second Warning<br>06 Research<br>07 Driving<br>08 The Beating<br>09 Traynor Lies<br>10 Never Show Your Fear<br>11 Preparations<br>12 The Killing<br>13 Bad News<br>14 The Funeral<br>15 One More Day<br><br>But I have no idea where Conversations, First Warning, and Deceit goes, and I'm not sure if Traynor Lies and Driving are placed correctlyif you read my first sentence you can see I dismisded this rumor as crap<br>..................<br><br>Fair enough....But look back on the comment itself. It's kinda confusing. The way you wrote it created the illusion that Lorne not only ghostwrote the score, but he also dismissed it as crap. You didn't say "I dismissed the rumor". You said: "...a rumor stating that Lorne Balfe ghostwrote this score and dismissed it as crap." <br> <br><br>Anyway, moving on.....<br><br>Steve was interviewed a lot about The Last Knight and it's pretty obvious that he worked hard on that score. From the day they started shooting the movie. Was he supported by other composers? Absolutely. You can't score such a huge movie by yourself. Any composer who claims that is lying.<br><br>So there's nothing shocking or surprising about the fact that other composers were involved here. As for them being "Lorne's people"......well, considering how MV/RC-related composers work and how interconnected everything is, the "Lorne guys" could very well be friends with Steve too and perhaps he simply brought them on board. Or they were recommended by Lorne. It certainly doesn't mean that there was this top secret plan of them and Lorne actually ghostwriting the entire score. I still wonder tho......how do these rumors even come up? Who spreads them? And why? I ask because this is not the first time I've heard rumors about Zimmer scores and Jablonsky scores. It's always these two guys. Which happen to be two of the most prominent and popular MV/RC guys. Coincidence? Not to sound like a conspiracy nut, but it kinda makes me think that someone is intentionally trying to undermine the biggest MV/RC names by constantly throwing shade at their work."Deserving" is a word that doesn't exist in Hollywood, so stop thinking that way... lolThe problem I have with Junkie XL scoring Avatar is just that there are so many RCP composers better or more deserving. You have Zimmer, Powell, Gregson-Williams, Mancina, Jackman, Wallfisch...it is just so wrong to think Junkie XL is scoring Avatar and none of those guys are.
I think that Tim Miller played a greater role in case of Terminator and Sonic. And I really don't see Junkie as good choice for Avatar 2.@Edmund <br>I still stand by my opinion that Holkenborg scoring Avatar 2 could be pretty interesting. Pairing him up with a director who is known to be strict with his musical choices and continuing on from James Hornerís classic might produce something really good. And seeing his gradual progress as a composer with Mortal Engines and Alita have personally given me some hope (2 years ago I would have said hell no).<br><br>And Iím not surprised by the choice for T6. Not looking forward to this project at all but we did get a cool score from Balfe for the last one so maybe there is some hope for the music at least.I think Terminator is a decent match for JXL's talents (listen to "The March" from Divergent), but this feels like further evidence that James Cameron is grooming him for Avatar 2, which I really hope ends up not being the case.Yes, Tom will be scoring the new Terminator movieChill out Bayhem, if you read my first sentence you can see I dismisded this rumor as crap.<br>But seeing people from his team ivolved and considering the fast and furious situation, I canít help but wondering if thereís some truth to that rumor.<br>Now for a guy talking about haters, saying that Lorne scores 36million projects and B movies (forgetting mission impossible) I think youíre pushing it a bit.<br>Anyway no hate I donít care who wrote it Iím just curious about the behind the scenes stuff.
You're reaching there a bit Bayhem, I see no one in this thread trying to undermine Steve's work or the score. Hell the first poster was just asking if Lorne worked on it and if so, to what extent. And the "rumor comment" is a logical extension of Lorne's whole regular team being credited on the score, therefore it is possible that he did additional work on it.Again a "rumor" comment that's trying to undermine Steve's work. And in this case, an entire score. Lorne fans, please stop trying to constantly undermine other composers in favor of your guy. It's childish and extremely disrespectful. You've done it multiple times on these boards. What's next? You gonna claim that Lorne secretly scored the entire Transformers franchise? And Lord of the Rings. And Harry Potter. <br><br>Seriously, it's getting really old, really fast. <br><br>Not to mention the fact that Steve, as a composer, is much, much more experienced and established than Lorne. He's got nothing to prove. Steve takes his time when it comes to scoring. He's choosing carefully. He's got more than enough time to focus on his projects. While Lorne's name is attached to 30 million different projects, some of them cheap B-movies like Hurricane Heist. And you think he's scoring them all by himself? The irony of it all is that if anyone is using ghostwriters most of the time, it's Lorne. Not Steve. And I'm saying that as a Lorne fan as well. I'm not just a Jablonsky fan. I appreciate Lorne's work as well. But I'm not undermining other composers in favor of him.Bay has Lorne scoring his films now cause they established a relationship on 13 Hours, and Bay didn't even want Lorne for that; he wanted Hans but he didn't want to go through the exhausting process of another Bay blockbuster so he brought in Lorne instead.<br>And even then, Hans still worked together with Lorne very closely on the project (Hybrid said he was there for all the meetings, helped with synth programming, etc)Of cause Balfe worked on it .That is why Bay now uses Balfeyou can absolutely hear the 13 hours temp track in Battlefield and We Have to Go

Wow!!! I just bought the soundtrack for POTC 3 today, and it so amazingly beautiful!! I have always enjoyed listening to movie soundtracks so much more than other types of music, and this far out does what I have heard in a long time. The songs bring back many of the feelings that I had while watching the movie (four times already), and some are very emotional because the climatic build-up is so beautiful. The soundtrack is playing as I write this, and will undoubtedly be played so much more in days to come. Wonderful, absolutely wonderful!!

@Matteo: anche "At Witís End" Ť una scopiazzatura! il carillon che senti Ť uguale a "per qualche dollaro in piý" nella scena finale del duello.
Avrei preferito che citassero il grande Ennio nei titoli o almeno sul cd audio! Bah...

Hello !! i'm a boy from Italy, scuse for my little English !! Yerstday i see the film , and listen the Music...great, fantastic...Zimmer is number one, after Morricone !! The track Parlay for me is the best track, and is inspired from the music of morricone western score, like Per un Pugno di Dollari, Per qualche dollaro in piý and Il Buono, il Brutto, Il Cattivo...the Sergio Leone's western movie. No ?

Bloody fantastic. Absofreakingly bloody fantastic.

Unlike a few other folks, I actually enjoy the holy hell out of both the Pirates 2 film and the score (esp. The Kraken & D. Jones themes). But this has REALLY got me reeling in circles to hear the full monty. A whirlpool of sound, fitting of Calypso herself.

Bring it.

man you guys are too funny.

Of course its supposed to be a homage to Morricone. Its for the duel. And Pirates doesnt take itself too seriously anyways...

The clips here are 'named' as 7358903 (#3), 7358911 (#11), 7358915 (#15), 7358916 (#16).

Does this mean they are from a CD with 16 tracks ?

Cause the soundtrack have (only) 13 tracks, it seems ! (??)

;)

Absolutely amazing! Hans Zimmer is a true genius at creating awe-inspiring love themes. (HEíS DONE IT AGAIN!) The love theme found in (At Witís End & Drink Up Me Hearties) speaks so highly to the complexity of the human soul: it is a emotional and metaphysical climb to clarity. That theme alone has already coiled itself tightly around my mind and soul reminding me why Hans Zimmer is one of the greatest composers of our time. From this theme alone I can truly say that this score is a great triumph for not only Hans Zimmeróbut also the entire Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. This CD when released will definitely not leave my CD player for months!

HANS ZIMMERóthe King of Clarity!

The 'first listen' is up over at Soundtrack.net :)

Lots of new original stuff. I've had soundtrack 2 before I'd seen film 2, so I was wondering how the horror-esque theme of The Kraken fitted with the circus-fun of Dinner Is Served. On soundtrack 3, Zimmer does it again. All kinds of cookiness that make me wonder how it al goes with a Pirates of the Caribbean film.

But you know what? This time around, I have no doubt it'll all work out perfectly. The last track on the cd sounds like it's the best end possible. Bring on the full cd!

One day is pretty good, it sounds so epic ! Although "king arthur" inspired, it sounds much better than king arthur because of the great pirates main theme. Love how Hans harmonizes the horns

Man...Im more exited with only 20 seconds clips from At the World's End than with the Whole Dead Man's chest score..

I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At last we have He's a pirate by Zimmer, and At last a triumphant rendition of the pirates theme with full orchestra and chorus!

Pretty damn good!

OOOOOH MY GOD! I'm so excited! One Day definitely reminded me of King Arthur and Parlay has gotta be a homage to Morricone's Once Upon A Time In The West. SOUNDS AMAZING!

Well it certainly sounds better than POTC2...but electric guitars still...

zimmer you never fail to amaze me. although many people did not enjoy the 2nd pirates movie, i understand that you didnt have the freedom needed to start from scratch to create the score. i thought it was still good. but this new one. wow! the orchestrations between the choir and the orchestra is fantastic!!! you are the man

As somebody said below One Day is too King Arthurish. :(
Parlay is too Morricone but I think that's why it was writen like that. In inside Joke maybe?
Hoist the Colours is good. Now thats a true Zimmer track.

Trust me, you will like the new score. There many new themes and musical ideas, just wait for the First Listen at Soundtrack.net tomorrow.
