    Anyone listened to his new Monsters VS. Aliens score? IMO although somewhat generic and not really terrific, I found it quite enjoyable, especially tracks like Battle At Golden Gate Bridge and A Giant Transformation. The guy seems to have good potential!

    I believe I remember an interview with Hans Zimmer which said that Henry Jackman was largely responsible for the "Up Is Down" material from Pirates 3. If that's true, and given that that cue is one of the best and most orchestrally interesting parts of the score, I'd say he definitely has potential!
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    Hans credited him with coming up with the Irish violin part.

    Finally listened to the Monsters vs. Aliens score and I must say that it's quite a good score. It's a good combination of the bold brassy orchestral work that Rupert Gregson-Williams had done for Bee Movie plus a nice dose of John Powell style of quirky electronics and arrangements (quite appropriately so since he did do some additional scoring work with John on Hancock and Kung Fu Panda). As the first solo score for Mr Jackman, it's pretty impressive, even more so than RGW's first score, Over The Hedge. Looking forward to his next score.

    Sounds like it.
  2. That's what Zimmer said in an interview.

  3. The LMO (London Metropolitan Orchestra) reports they've done his replacement score to "Kick-Ass". They also say they were the orchestra for all three rejected scores.

    I could, but I created a site just for that purpose, back in 2004:

    Also check out the "DEMOS" section later for yet another composer.

    No, Jackman is the fourth one. There was another fella who had his score rejected too. tongue
  6. No score is rejected, most probably they pulled off a Miami Vice, as Mikael said.

    Well they ought to bring Tyler Bates in. Or Paul Haslinger.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.
  8. IF Haslinger, then right after he does his score, they should decide to go back to Eshkeri. ;-)


    Three rejections -- that ties with "The Sepent and the Rainbow" for number of rejections.

    But the film doesn't open until MArch here (in the U.S. first), so there's plenty of time -- considering the time frame for writing & recording then rejections Vries and Murphy did their scores, to replace at least four more scores.

    According to the newest movie poster, all of them are credited.

  10. What a huge mess.


    I guess on te plus side, the LMO players have been getting a ton of practice. And pay.

  12. IT's also single handedly the weirdest story of rejections I know of, TSatR.
