  1. Or alternatively, UK cinemas often don’t finalise their times until later in the week - our local (and big) Vue lists no showings of anything after the 28th… which is pretty standard.
  2. If it’s John Powell I will be pretty pleased, but not terribly hopeful
  3. Orrrrr they threw the shot together for the trailer, which has been very known to happen. The lightning in the emperor/Rey scenes is definitely on-set lighting, anyway, which implies the whole look of the planet was known
  4. I don't know whether this counts as a fanfare but it's absolutely rad either way:
  5. Has Giacchino’s been included on any of his MCU albums? I definitely prefer his version.
  6. I thought the part where Powell said only 1 of Williams’ 6 demos ended up in the place in the film it was written for was quite interesting, too. Which do we think the 6 cues were, again?
  7. There's a fair bit of film music that gives me chills. Lots of the obvious parts of LotR, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, CE3K, ET etc, HTTYD, Solo... Most recently, Sometimes Nature's Cruel and Gods Fight, Buck Takes the Lead and Rewilding from Call of the Wild.have all given me chills. Even *imagining* Rewilding gave me chills, which I've never had before... has anyone else had anything similar?
  8. There's apparently a deleted end credits scene from Endgame where Wanda stole Vision's body, so I guess that rules out 1?
  9. 1. Rey's Theme 2. Rise of Skywalker 3. Adventures of Han 4. March of the Resistance 5. Galaxy's Edge 6. The Rebellion is Reborn 7. Anthem of Evil 8. Scherzo for X-Wings 9. Jedi Steps 10. Adagio (The Starkiller) (Or similar - they're all great)
  10. Chen, I like you, but this sounds just like Matriss ngl
  11. Well, these guys think Mando Luke is a deep fake. Tbf, I do see it, it looks nothing like Tarkin or Leia., the smoothness at the edges of the face and the way he never really turns his head do point that way.
  12. I have many friends who are far more "woke" than me, none of whom would ever suggest that I shouldn't listen to JW's Harry Potter music because of JKR. The Prisoner of Azkaban (from the LLL set)
  13. It’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle to WW’s Kingsman, I’d say. Way more unfocused than the first, messy, with some subplots feeling a bit ham-fisted and under-baked. Worse than Aquaman for my money (I thought that was dumb but deliberately so and really fun). But Pedro Pascal is brilliant in it, it does have that.
  14. Really? Huh. I always assumed it was Goransson. (tbf I don’t really like it either way, sounds like JW-lite to me)
  15. But if there’s been edge enhancement on the upscale, it can result in things standing out which didn’t before.
  16. Has any major vfx studio used deep-faking outside of something like that impersonation of the Queen the other day? I can't think of any off the top of my head (though would like to see if there are any), though there have to be reasons why they are so rare. They get a bit weird when the character turns sideways, and mouth and lips are often very odd in motion. They are limited in that the studio would need to license hundreds of hours of old interview footage of the young actors, all needing to be sourced (doubting they could just download clips from youtube). They also produce results which are low resolution with plenty of rendering issues which even show when looking at compressed-as-hell YT videos (and what would they look like in 4K?) and studios think it's worth pumping money into CG characters when soon (hopefully) they really will be able to look photo-real. And last of all, they very much seem to work best on top of a CG recreation of the same face... which requires the CG face to be good in the first place? Obviously, I don't really know, I am guessing. I'd assume that people working in the industry obviously have their reasons for doing what they are doing, and I'm sure they'd love to save hundreds of hours of refining and rendering imperfect CG characters using deepfakes if they could. (Yeah, I think the deepfake Luke is an improvement on the weird dead eyes of the Mando original, obviously)
  17. I sort of tried to do the same thing, mostly using tracks named after Chapter Titles from the book, or the closest match I thought fitted, and album suites. Again, it's nowhere near a "best of" but flows nicely (imho), though clocks in at 109 mins. An Unexpected Party Roast Mutton The Hidden Valley Over Hill Dreaming of Bag End Under Hill Riddles In the Dark Out of the Frying-Pan The House of Beorn Flies and Spiders Beyond the Forest Barrels Out of Bond Thrice Welcome On the Doorstep Inside Information Smaug Fire and Water The Gathering of the Clouds A Thief in the Night The Clouds Burst Ironfoot The Return Journey There and Back Again
  18. I don’t think studios have anywhere near the capability to deepfake as fans, for at least one reason - fans use ridiculous amounts of footage from old interviews and films to make their deepfakes, and that footage would probably be a huge licensing problem for vfx studios. Thanos is a big purple fella, and like with Gollum in the Hobbit, both punch above their realism weight as they don’t have entirely human features. Humans are far more attuned to human faces than apes, for example.
  19. Harry Potter in the Hairdresser today. And not JW, but the 20th Century Fox fanfare played in between club music while waiting in line for a club in Korea, that was exceedingly strange
  20. So far I’ve just seen people saying that it’s not too late to make the ST not canon, and trying to come up with ways it could have happened in an alternate universe...
  21. But barely any of that is deleted scenes, it's mostly deleted lines, alternate sequences, alternate lines, or even unused shots... They're not just going to dump all the rushes on a disc, there is no way the vast majority of these things would ever be seen, because they were never meant to be. I think that list would be wayyyyyyy shorter if it were talking about things likely to be released. Even stuff people are excited about, like Gil-galad vs Sauron, was probably only going to be 3 shots and 3 seconds long, or similar.. (But yes, it would be very cool)
  22. Yeah, having looked at as many screenshots I could find on the internet, I don’t think there’s any way that the films were actually rescanned from the OCNs, there’s less visible detail here than on the Blu Rays.
