James Newton Howard's FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

Recommended Posts

Love the samples, sounds like another really enjoyable score. Nice to hear those two themes again (Newt's hero theme in 6/8 is pretty cool!) and the new one sounds pretty good.

 

I suspect I'll enjoy this score at least as much as Last Jedi, Ready Player One, Solo, and Incredibles 2 which would make the last 12 months probably the most satisfying for these splashy orchestral scores in awhile.

Can't preview, New Zealand only? 

 

Did JW ever write a Dumbledore theme btw?

 

Williams, no. I think I remember Nicholas Hooper intending “In Noctem” to be an ode of sorts for the character. Desplat had a little motif for Dumbledore’s past/family. 

 

 

But he’s never really had a theme proper.

Don't care much for that main theme but Salamander Eyes is absolutely lovely!

 

What main theme?

 

The other piece is not the main theme. The main theme hasn't been reprised yet in these samples and released pieces.

 

The big swashbuckling theme you hear towards the end of the piece is Newt's Hero Theme from his first score.

Really love the first, titular track! It will be interesting to see whether it's an album suite or an actual film cue. Reminds you how great JNH is. 

 

Salamander one is nice too, although it's basically half a reprise from the final scenes of the first one.

Since it’s listed as the last (orchestral) track on the album I’m guessing it’s for the credits. Similar kind of energy to his “End Titles” tracks for the first one.
