Mike Matessino has provided me with a more detailed explanation of this that I can share:    

Yes and no.  He scored a handful of scenes in 2009/2010 (recorded early 2010), then Spielberg continued to cut the whole film together, and many of the scenes he had already scored were now different

John Williams was hired to score this little indie film called Rise of the Skywalker. The OST is scheduled for December release but it probably won't get that much discussion. 

I really want it to be The Patriot. If it's not it, then chances are very slim that Patriot is one of the scores that apparently survived Sony's new policy.

 

Also, I don't know what the chances are of a John Williams/Oliver Stone box set. All three of their movies were produced by different studios and the scores were released by different labels, so who knows?

We haven't had a single year without a Spielberg/Williams expansion since 2010, and we've had 2 each year since 2015.

 

Always isn't exactly a high demand expansion, so if there's ever a reason to release it, it's a milestone anniversary.

But we've only had TWO completely unreleased JW scores since 2011 (NIGHTWATCH and PETE'N'TILLIE). That's where the offensive should be set, IMO.

Well, and Black Sunday got its first official release in 2010, right?

 

Yes. Up to 2011, premiere JW releases were quite regular. After then, it dwindled almost to zero. No doubt largely due to FSMs "demise" as a label.

 

I should really have been more specific -- we've really only had ONE premiere release since 2011 -- and that was PETE'N'TILLIE. That's one release in 8 years (obviously not counting whatever new score he's had in the interim)! It's been great for my wallet, since I don't buy expansions, but frustrating for my completist urge.

Things are definitely very low-key from LLL this year, after all the fun we had guessing about Harry Potter last year. Bit of a shame... but at least we know one guaranteed Williams score releasing this December. :P

 

Man, remember when the boxset existence was spoiled by the RAH concert program?  How crazy was that?!  Good times.

I totally forgot that! You're right, that's why speculation was at fever pitch for Potter -- I couldn't remember what else we had to go on (SL was spoiled by the re-release poster too).

 

Radio silence this year. It almost creates the impression there's nothing in the works but surely that's not the case. It'll be amazing if they just blow us away with something unexpectedly high-profile.

What do you mean? Do you know something?

I voted for Reivers, Sugarland Express and Hook.

 

When JW originally vetoed SE back in 2017 to kick off the Heritage line Mike Matessino said something along the lines that "he had something in mind to persuade him".  45th anniversary seems like a good reason as any.  

 

Reivers since it's 50th anny and it's important in that it's what drove Spielberg to want to work with JW.
