Well, the fact is that the movie opens in about 3 weeks and still nothing has been announced. Also everyone I asked doesn't know anything about the score album actually happening and the only claim that suggest otherwise was MV who mentioned that Carrie was spoken for, but that doesn't mean we are actually getting anything. Sony/Columbia might be just blocking the rights for their own labels and issuing this piece of shit instead of what they were supposed to. Perhaps we might get something with the DVD/BD if the film does well enough at the box office, but who knows... Hopefully something will be announced soon, but it doesn't seem very likely now.
Really? I thought it was pretty desperate. Does the movie need this? Naw. But the PR people probably thought: oh, how clever we are, how modern and edgy.
I'd say the movie needs this yes, a publicity youtube video that goes viral kinda helps word about the movie getting out not? So yes, that is kind of clever advertising IMO. My only criticism with the video is the annoying music they used, doesn't fit with the prank.
Don't remember Donaggio's music from the original film so can't draw any comparisons or contrasts.
I was going to say that your review has me even more intrigued to hear Beltrami's score, but that last sentence kind of takes away some of my faith in your judgment. How can you not know Donaggio's Carrie? It's an absolutely classic score. And I'm not just saying that because it's my favorite!
I know that Beltrami can come up with melodic scores because I've heard Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and was very impressed by that. I'm hoping that he will have captured the same melancholic femininity of the Donaggio score, which made that film feel even more tragic than it already was.
Indeed - how can you not know Donaggio's Carrie? Kind of amazing. And everything that's being described here about Marco's score (I'm a fan, BTW) could be said of Pino's score - every single word. The movie looks like it's De Palma lite and very much a replay of what he did, with several shots looking identical. We probably won't get the opening girls' locker room the way it was in the De Palma, not in today's world. The theme posted here has none of the wistful, beautiful quality of Pino, I'm afraid.
Not if the movie is any good. If it is, the studios want to capitalize on it by having TV spots with critical praise soundbites. If it isn't, they just want to get the film out before anyone knows how bad it is. I'd like to hope that this new Carrie is good (I have a free ticket), but hopes are dwindling with the deafening silence from the critics.
I've heard about Sony too... glad to hear it confirmed from more sources. Now the question is when... hopefully if the movie won't do good enough at the box office the release (now planned for example in connection with DVD/BD release) won't get canceled.
I'll see the movie in about 10 hours...can't wait!
