Michael & Mick Giacchino's EXTINCT (2021)

Recommended Posts


Michael Giacchino has been hired to score the upcoming animated adventure comedy Extinct. He will be co-scoring the project with his son, Mick Giacchino. The film is directed by David Silverman (The Simpsons Movie, Monsters, Inc.) and features the voices of Adam Devine, Rachel Bloom, Zazie Beetz, Ken Jeong, Jim Jefferies, Catherine O’Hara, Reggie Watts and Alex Borstein. The movie follows two donut-shaped animals called flummels as they accidentally time-travel from 1835 to modern-day Shanghai where they discover traffic, trans fats, and the fact that flummels have become extinct. Joel Cohen, John Frink & Rob LaZebnik (The Simpsons) are writing the screenplay for the Chinese/American co-production, which is produced by China Lion, HB Wink, Huayi Tencent Entertainment, and Tolerable Entertainment. No word yet on a release date for Extinct.

This is getting out of hand, now there are two of them!

Yuck, only Giacchino would have such poor taste to ruin chocolate and vanilla ice cream with strawberry.

Anyone else perturbed by the fact that Michael Giacchino named his son Mick?  Presumably short for Mickey?   You can take your Disney shilling too far!

How old is Mick? He'll probably be the youngest person ever to score a big Hollywood movie.


I mean, Michael Senior will probably write the bulk of it and his son maybe will write one or two, with the help of his daddy. But still...

Mick Giacchino was born ca. 1998 and has the following credits to his name:


Jurassic World (2015) - uncredited contribution to seemingly every cue

Spiderman: Homecoming (2016) - additional orchestration

The incredibles 2 (2018) - composer: additional music

Spiderman; Far From Home (2019) - composer: a song


plus two credits as sound mixer for short films and one as a musician in a Pixar short


To be "the youngest person to score a big Hollywood movie" he would actually have to have credible solo credit for real film cues in a big project. It likely won't happen until he does one, two or three more collaborations like this with his father. He has a shot though. It's hard to find anyone below the age of 30 getting credit for scores to major films (Herrmann was 29 when Citizen Kane entered theaters).

I actually meant the youngest people that have his name as a composer, or one of the composers, credited on a Hollywood film, not for additional music, but as one of the main composers - as in "James Newton Howard on Batman Begins", not "Andrew Kawczynski on Batman v Superman", if that makes any sense, lol. We all know that the underworld of ghostwriting and additional music is a little shady.


In Mick's case, considering he'll be 21/22 when the movie premieres, I think he might fit.

He really ought to be in kindergarden, playing with his friends, instead of doing this child labour.

On another note, Griffin Giacchino wrote cues for War for the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, M:I Ghost Protocol, and Jurassic World.


There's three of them? :nopity:
