The posters have the original composer's name. Isham was hired around March 2012 (after Charset recorded his score) with the intention that he would replace almost everything (a few Charset cues were to remain).
Maybe Isham will release his score on his label (or he'll say something) so we can have an answer of what happened.
At long last, the new movie from the director of A Knight's Tale and the director's cut of Payback: 42, a Jackie Robinson biopic. I kind of like Helgeland's work, but often find these movies dealing with racism problematic for reasons beyond the scope of this thread. In any event, I'm curious to see how this one turns out. Score by Mark Isham, who's no stranger to sports dramas (but mostly ones that look to have quite a different tone than this one).
I wouldn't say 42 has a different tone from other sports films. It looks a lot like The Express (which was also scored by Isham) and I imagine the music video style of the trailer will not be in the film but be period-appropriate instead (after all, the director did win an Oscar for his script to L.A. Confidential).
The score for The Grandmaster has been replaced. While the Chinese version retains Umebayashi's score, the international release will be 15 minutes shorter and have a new score by Nathaniel Mechaly (of Taken fame).
I don't know. I hadn't even heard of that project.
Here's the trailer for Mira Nair's newest, The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Nair started strong 25 years ago with Salaam Bombay! and peaked a dozen years ago with Monsoon Wedding but the quality of her work has been all over the map otherwise, and the writers credited with her latest don't inspire much hope. Still, it would be nice to see another good movie from her.
I was surprised by The Conjuring trailer. It looks more like a film from Lynne Ramsay (whom I've read is currently working on a sci-fi version of Moby Dick) or Andrea Arnold than the man who gave Saw.
I agree with your comparisons, but to be fair I think Saw was a much different and better movie than the rest of the franchise it spun into. Curiously, Wan's sequel to Insidious is coming mere weeks after The Conjuring. Here's hoping they're both good.
I'm mildly curious about The Bling Ring, the new Sofia Coppola movie, starring Hermione Granger:
Elysium, the new sci-fi actioner from Neill Blomkamp (director of District 9). Score by Ryan Amon. Trailer doesn't actually do much for me, but I'm cautiously optimistic. Might be a decent double feature with next year's All You Need Is Kill.
The latest version of Stephen King's Carrie (following Brian De Palma's 1976 classic and the 2002 TV version starring Angela Bettis), this one looks a bit prettier than the original with Chloë Moretz as Carrie, but, once again, cautiously optimist about this one.
