Which 5 John Williams expanded releases will we get in 2018?

Recommended Posts

The Cowboys is the first.

 

What else do you think will we get this year? Take 5 picks (including The Cowboys).... 

 

1. The Cowboys

2. Born on the Fourth of July 

3. Star Wars and the Phantom Menace 

4. JFK 

5. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Are we sure there are going to be FIVE Williams expansions in one year? Seems like a lot!

 

1. The Cowboys

2. Born on the Fourth of July 

3. The Towering Inferno

4. JFK 

5. Presumed Innocent (the last one Varese controls if I'm not mistaken, and since they already put out Stanley & Iris and The Cowboys...)

Hell yeah! But seriously I don't think so. They just released the remastered OST's. It'll still be a while before we see the expanded releases of Star Wars coming out I should think, although I wish it's sooner than later.

Harry  Potter (because that seems to be a likely consensus) is my guess.

I don't know that, of course.

 

I just said take 5 picks. If it's supposed to be a good year for JW fans, 5 is not an unreasonable number, I thought.

That's 3 movies.

 

But yeah, we might get a giant John Williams Harry Potter Box Set. After Jurassic Park last year, I'll believe that could happen. How great would that be!

We already have this year's major JW expanded release: The Cowboys. And that's it! And we also have SW remastered in glorious sound, specially ESB. There won't be anything else after those. See ya all in 2019.

3. The Sugarland Express

4. Dracula

5. The Rare Breed

 

I think you're gonna be pretty disappointed, for the foreseeable future because Dracula famously has problems (probably only surviving complete in poor mono sound) and Mike Mattessino and Roger Feigelson have confirmed that John Williams himself does not want #s 2, 3, or 5 released at the present time (thankfully also confirming that tapes for these three survive, at least...)

BOTFOJ would be nice, and very welcome.

Potter, [shrug] – I'm happy enough with the current OSTs.

Sugarland/Storia ... we should be so lucky 😜

I heard Warner has been planning on a HP box set since last year at least.

And I heard it would be something for this year. Two questions still remain:

- Is the source reliable?

- Will MM be involved?

There was a boxset planned for Potter, but it was just a collection of all the OSTs in one big box. I guess that's okay if you never bought them.

Will it ever happen?

 

Yes, they have it on the table, but its not a priority perhaps because they have other projects in cue?

Queue, not cue. 

 

You should probably stop correcting the spelling of people whom English isnt their first language. It's very rude.

Well Cowboys isn't from LLL, and we know LLL have Williams release(s) in the pipeline this year because they've said as much.

 

There's only been one year since 2011 without a Spielberg/Williams expansion from LLL, so I'm not concerned. In fact, we've had two new expansions two years running now, so fingers crossed that continues!

Such people need to be educated all the time. I love being corrected myself.
