This is absolutely fantastic. A 90 minute talk with JNH that really goes in-depth. He really dives deep into his scoring process for Fantastic Beasts, and plays a lot of his themes on keyboard and sho

James Newton Howard will be the composer of the next Tomb Raider movie

 

No official source given, so take it with a grain of salt.

This post from Filmtracks sums up my opinion to a T:

 

Would be awesome, although I hope they don't go all "DARKNESS! NO PARRREEEENTS" and cause Howard to go full generic thriller mode. If the reboot channels some adventurous flair and fantasy as a film, Howard would do great. 

 

The guy even included a reference to The LEGO Movie's "Batman Song", like I might have done myself!

I'm impressed. :lol:

I agree with JNH that this is one of his strongest scores in terms of themes!  I hope the premiere of the suite is filmed and uploaded to Youtube :D 

 

 

He'll no doubt be doing it on his European Concert tour, so if there isn't a video from this, then surely someone will upload something from somewhere on his tour.

Boooo! And boooo! And also boooo!!!

Scheduling conflict with what other film that James Newton Howard is scorong, then?

After Fantastic Breasts last year, I'm really looking forward to another fun fantasy adventure score from JNH.

He doesn't always live up to it, but when he's good, he's pretty great! And that happens more often than not.

 

Jackman hasn't impressed me yet.

Can't even be bothered to try out his Kong.

Jackman is mostly awful. JNH would have been the only saving aspect of the film, but now it has nothing going for it.

 

JNH clearly had to back out because he's touring Europe in a few months, and scoring many films over the next year, some of which are hugely time consuming, like The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, which he said he has already started writing. Also 'Inner City' with Denzel, 'Detroit' for Kathryn Bigelow, 'Red Sparrow' with Jennifer Lawrence and of course Fantastic Beasts 2.

In what way? Do you mean in his answers to the students towards the end? I didn't really think he was being flippant himself so much as he was just trying to be encouraging and demystify it for them. Pointing out that there are broadly reliable concepts and techniques that are relatively easy to understand and apply, not to be too intimidated by the size of the orchestra or discouraged by their inexperience with an instrument to start learning.

So with JNH not scoring two films with the potential for fun adventure, what IS he still scoring that offers the prospect of enjoyable music?

Sounds like I'll have to wait for the next Fantastic Beats. Bit of a shame as I had hoped for something good from him this year as well...

woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?

 

I'd not yet gotten out of bed when I posted that at half past 8.  A rare leisurely morning today, and being a bit of a twat on JWFan is the right way to start!
