Escape from Tomorrow is great!

Any idea if the 26 minute digital OST is the complete score or not?


I think that's all he wrote for the film.

Holy moly. Such a late-game replacement, of a big-name composer who rarely gets a score replaced. I can only think of three things that could have lead to it, and they're all negative.

Abel's shown he has the chops to do a picture like this, so he'll do a fine score. I just hope in a unique turn of events, Horner's CD release doesn't get cancelled and still comes. Eh, probably shouldn't hold my breath on that.


Hey, I recall some words from Horner on Yared back during "Troy". Shoe's on the other foot now, Jamie.

Looks like it's a bad year for Horner. First Ender's Game, now Romeo & Juliet (curiously, both starring Hailee Steinfeld). Now let's hope that he doesn't get replaced with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.


Since he did the first one pretty much based on beginning by the director and despite his lack of interested in the genre, is he really doing nr. 2? there has been no official confirmation yet.

What a blow to Horner's ego.

Maybe he should listen to his own comments towards Yared after the Troy debacle?

Edit: oops Justin beat me to it.

1. Not good enough Xmas gift; 2. not enough interns to do a 180 turn at the 11th hour; 3. The director says "Horner I know you're great but you can't just pull some stuff from Casper and call it a day."

I'd really love to hear what kind of shenanigans went into the decision but at the same time I really don't care because Korzeniowski is my favorite young composer and this assignment is a fantastic showcase for his talents.

When a movie's in trouble the last thing they feel they can do is change the music.

I feel bad for Horner because he is brilliant. Congrats to the replacement guy.

Hopefully he will give the director what he feels he needs for his picture.

I'll see the movie on DVD when it's $1.00 at the Dollar Tree.

Would love to hear Horner talk about what happened from his point of view, like his interview about THE NEW WORLD. Just love it when just says what he feels, no holds barred!

Danny Schweiger, get Maestro Horner on the line! Please.

Don't know what to make of this. I love Horner and was looking forward to his new score.

However, I also love Korzeniowski and look forward to hearing what he comes up with - if it even gets released.
I just hope it isn't a flop as Korzeniowski doesn't seem to get enough work as it is without being attached to a bad film.

Looks like Horner recorded a complete score, but somehow I doubt it'll ever see the light of day (recall "Young Guns" and his disinclination to let Intrada release that). I'm pretty gutted; this leaves Horner with no 2013 projects that I'm aware of.

Korzeniowski is a fantastic choice and could definitely use the exposure; I'll definitely be checking his score out if it's released. I'm guessing they'll pull a "King Kong" and everyone who has preordered Horner's score will find it magically changed to Korzeniowski's.

Still, it's disheartening as a major Horner fan to have his only two 2013 efforts rejected within a couple of weeks of each other.

Count me in as another person who thinks this is great news. It might be good for Horner to have his music rejected once in a while, especially when the music sounds as lazy as it's been for the past 15 years.

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.

If the score is as derivative as KC has described, I'm glad it's been tossed aside. A humbling experience for one of the most arrogant and downright precious men in the business.

Great news. Now Horner can rip off both Prokofiev AND Rota wholesale(!), not selectively, as in the past thirty years.


Prokofiev's ballet score for "R&J" is one of the most magnificent scores I have ever heard from any medium. Will Horner measure up? I can guarantee that he will not even come close to either Prokofiev or Rota.

Catch up, Eastman!

I'd never heard of the guy till Khan told me Horner got rejected and I read this thread.

Maybe it's Julia Roberts/James Newton Howard in reverse.

It's the first time that Horner has ever had a score rejected or thrown out. At least they got a good replacement, rather than another MV/RC composer.

Definitely not the first, but the first in a while. Remember Young Guns and Heaven Help Us?


He replaced himself on the latter (if not The Good Shepherd), no? And as pointed out (and thanks for reminding me) it's the second time it's happened to him this year. Ouch.

As some have stated this is kind of strange. I love Horner and really wanted to listen to his R&J but Kozerniowski is one of my favorite composers of the last few years and again stating what people already said he gets very little work. W/E is my favorite score of the last few years!

Here is some more of his work:

I hope we get both scores released.
