HOOK will go up for sale at 1pm PST on Tuesday, March 27th. When will it sell out? Make your guess in this thread and the winner will receive a free CD from me. I have about 4-5 random film score CDs floating around that you can pick from.

The only rule is that you must select a 15-minute increment of time, and must post your guess in PST. So for example you can guess Wednesday March 18th at 5:00, 5:15, 5:30, or 6:00 PST but you cannot guess 5:17, 5:38, or 6:01. (Though you are welcome to post a specific time like that if you want, for extra cred if you are right)

Post your guesses here and I will compile them in the main post. Once you make your guess you cannot change! I will be taking guesses right up until the CD goes on sale.

Whoever guesses closest to the sell-out date posted by LLL wins a free cd!

Do we know how many they're printing yet?

EDIT: Ah, just saw the other post. 5000? Hmm. I'll take March 29th, HIGH NOON.

If people went crazy enough for Die Hard, and I believe Hook is much more sought after than that, I'm gonna be the extremest and actually say:

I have to agree with you on this one.

I for one could not even begin to try and figure out when this would sell out. However, if Hook is still around by April 6th I'll be really surprised.

since its so unlikely i'm going to get this right... i'll just say this:

Like every new williams release in recent years (amazingly) it will not sell out in hours and will last by the least a month (or even wont sell out :P) . so that would be April 27th, 1:00 pm.

I hope Episode III is Called 'Revenge of the Sith'

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

My prediction:

April 10, 10:00 PM.
"I get asked all the time, 'What happens after Return of the Jedi?,' and there really is no answer for that. The movies were the story of Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker, and when Luke saves the galaxy and redeems his father, that's where that story ends."

Trying to use a bit of logic here, I think 5000 is a high enough number to make it stick around for a while. Sure, it's a fan favourite -- long desired -- but I've seen bigger titles with only 3000 CD's take a long, long time. Also, there are -- believe it or not -- quite a few people like me who love Williams, love the score, but that are content with the Epic release. So they're probably out too.

As such, I think it will stick around to, say, May 17, at least (just a random day that also happens to be the Norwegian national day). If not longer.

Of course, I may be totally off here. Time will show. Either way, it's gonna be a big seller.

I think it's going to take a few days at 5000 units, but people have had the time and notice to get funds in place, so I'm going to take a stab at March 31st at 9pm PST.

No, I think he means it's going to sell out 126 years ago.

Apples and oranges. Like Predator, Die Hard went fast mainly because its only previous release was a limited edition with a hefty secondary market value. People snapped it up either because they couldn't afford the last CD or they had the Varese and wanted to sell it for a premium.

I think the 5000 limit may make some people think they can wait a bit, but I'll go for April 1st at roughly 6pm EST.
Repeat the JWFan pledge after me: 'I hereby recognise John Towner Williams' place in the world as the great composer there has ever been, and I therefore renounce the works of Rozsa, Korngold, Herrmann, Horner, Kamen, Giacchino (unless the prophecy is fulfilled and he becomes the heir to JTW) and Goldsmith, especially Goldsmith. I understand that if I ever refer to Jurassic Park as anything less than "a masterpiece sixty-five million years in the making" I will be resigned to living out my days at the Zimmershrine.'

I'm gonna say 8:30 PM PST on Friday the 30th.

But it's hard to say. It is a very popular score. It's Williams. Oft requested expansion. But it is a good OST, and a readily available one. We'll see...

I really don't think so. That is a Goldsmith score.
