As @Holko and @Jay suggested, I've spent some time doing these isolated score videos for Minority Report, one of my favorite Spielberg movies and also one of my favorite John Williams scores! So the objective of this as you may already know, is to present the movie as JW scored it, by restoring unused and replaced music. We are fortunate enough that we got an amazing release from La-La-Land Records last year featuring the complete score plus a bunch of alternates. I strictly used the presentation that Mike Matessino established to make the videos, meaning there is absolutely no edits in the music except of course when two separated cues on the set are meant to overlap in the movie. I really wanted to avoid using black screens when the movie goes out of sync either if some sections are looped or stretched, because it can sometimes be distracting, so I decided, when possible, to alter the picture by slowing elegantly some shots. I will post the videos in several parts, hope you enjoy it The Crime / Creating The Red Balls The movie version starts very differently with deep drums beats (that opening is presented in the Additional Music section of the LLL release), here we see how JW intended the movie to start. The cue fits pretty much, I made small adjustments to the picture for better sync with the music. Pre-Crime To The Rescue For a eight-minute cue, the cue fits pretty well even though I also made some slight adjustments to the picture. Note that the section from 6:38 to 7:00 was not used in the movie, instead, other bits of the same cue were tracked here. Images Of Sean Only the ending of that piece was actually used in the movie (starting from 2:53). Two openings were recorded for the cue, both included in the LLL track Images Of Sean. Since I did not want to edit that track, I duplicated some footage to present the two different openings in the same video: the revised opening 1M9R Image of Sean (Revised) from 0:10 to 1:17 and the original opening as recorded in 1M9 Image Of Sean from 1:17 to 2:20. Presenting The Pre-Cogs / Agatha The middle of the first cue was not used at all in the movie. That section from 1:24 to 2:55 was tracked from Leo Crow ... The Confrontation and “Sean” By Agatha". We can now see how JW intended it for that scene. It really took time to edit the movie to the cue but I'm very happy with how it turned out. The Containment Center / First Vision Of Anne Lively Nothing much to say except that I love The Containment Center, one of my favorite cues of the score! Suspicion The whole beginning was not used in the movie (from 0:10 to 0:55). Here's the whole scene, as JW scored it. The Collage That cue seems to belong to a deleted scene that is unfortunately not available. Even though it refers to 2M6B Schubert Collage, I don't see how it could be used as an overlay to the Schubert piece that plays before. Here is what can be found in the script (great find @crumbs): The Elevator / On The Run The Elevator starts 5 seconds earlier in the movie but with sections in the beginning looped. I did not edit the picture here, I just made the cue start a bit later and it looks correct. Note that the ending of the cue sounds different in the movie, only the synth can be heard. On The Run fits perfectly! Anderton Escapes / The Conveyor Belt The first part from Anderton Escapes fits properly but then there are 3 sections in the second half that are simply cut in the movie. This is the first case I had to use black screens to make the cue sync with the picture. I tried to see if the deleted footage could be seen in the Blu-Ray bonuses, sadly the "previz" for that scene is identical to what ended up in the final movie. The Conveyer Belt overall fits pretty well even though there is a cut section (from 6:46 to 7:02) which I also had to fill with black screens. Nothing could be found about that deleted footage either. The section from 7:52 to 8:00 was unused in the movie. Instead the percussion from an earlier section of The Conveyor Belt and the drum overlay from Freezing Water were tracked. We can see how JW intended it here.
Spielberg will indeed cannibalize one of his own films for a TV series, via his Amblin Television unit. Godzilla writer Max Borenstein will develop the series, which is expected to land a name actor in the lead and follow the adventures of the PreCog unit through his or her eyes. Source No telling whether it'll be in continuity with the feature film or not.
I find this soundtrack to be really interesting. The strange thing about it is that "Sean's Theme" and "A New Beginning [Minority Report]" seem to be really misplaced in the soundtrack, although they are probably the two best tracks - Precrime to the Rescue" is good too . Do not get me wrong, I like the soundtrack, but 80%of the soundtrack sounds a lot like "Attack of the Clones". I really like "A New Beginning [Minority Report]", it sounds vaguely familiar. Is it based on some previous work?
