Sneakers, Apollo 13 and The Pelican Brief aren't the first scores that would spring to mind if I were compiling a Romeo & Juliet temp track.

I'm interested in this, but not surprised that it may sound like all those other scores. Horner was on a roll for a while with some great new scores (Karate Kid, Black Gold) but the last one released "For Greater Glory" was essentially just a rehash of "Four Feathers" with a couple of really good moments.

For Greater Glory was recorded in 2011, before Black Gold and The Amazing Spider-Man.

My thoughts exactly. My anticipation for this score has certainly diminished.

"Sounds like all new score, but heavily influenced by the above three. Weird!"
-----------------------------------------------
I take it you don't buy a lot of Horner! wink


Actually I do. Love the danger motif and hearing the 90's stuff in this was pleasing, but just weird. I'll likely get it when it comes out.

How many times did you hear the infamous Danger Motif?

Can't remember to be honest. What I do remember hearing was, if we were in an alternate universe, alternate versions of the cues "Too Many Secrets", "Four More Amps" and "Garage Chase", which I thought were one of the best cues for their films, but hearing it in R&J was just weird.

By the way, there's a lot more swashbuckling action in this version than in previous R&J adaptations, hence the 90's action Horner sound.

But, there are many remakes that don't make a penny: did anyone see the recent version of TOTAL RECALL?

Yes, I seem to have had the Rekall implant that had the fun taken out of it.

Im currently running (for the third time this year) a screening of Romeo and Julliet in NYC. Its really cool (albeit weird) to hear James Horner reuse musical passages from Apollo 13, The Pelican Brief and Sneakers in this remake. Some people will not approve, but i really love the 90's sound. In case you asked, it wasn't a temp score. All new recording in the picture. Get ready for a cheesy end title song too.

Maybe all the Boys in Verona wear "Sneakers" and jump on a rocket to the Moon, doomed by a Pelican crashing into the space craft? Be interesting to see and hear how this music fits. I'll always love James Horner, no matter what.

That shows originality, doesn't it?!

This will sound like TITANIC and regular movie viewers will not be able to pick it out and make the CD a best seller!!

I'd be very happy if Darby's Theme from The Pelican Brief is used, and maybe even expanded, in this score. That tune was gorgeous and hardly used over the course of the Pelican Brief.

Yes, maybe the director tracked PELICAN BRIEF in and said 'more of that please'
Or maybe it's just James Horner up to his usual old tricks smile

No Darby's Theme. Just the garage chase danger motif from The Pelican Brief. You will hear a variation of Master Alarm from Apollo 13 in the opening tournament sequence and later in a chase sequence. The R&J Theme has Sneakers written all in it with hints of Braveheart and Glory. And what I heard was NOT a temp track.

It's pretty much the basis of Apollo 13's theme as well, but in a more streamlined way. It does get quoted almost verbatim (albeit briefly) in the Re-Entry & Splashdown cue, though.

The only peice of Apollo 13 reused here is the track "Master Alarm". The main Theme sounds more like parts of Sneakers and a hint of Braveheart.
