A new assignment for Marco Beltrami...oh yes.

Yikes, Photoshop failure. Check out the drunken clone tool ghosting of Jeff Bridge's head in the top left section.

Yeah. Weird. This poster really makes me want to see the movie, said no one ever.

Can't wait! smile

btw, unless something changed, this should be another 2013 project. According to IMDB it will be released in October in the UK for example.

ok... you were correct... it is first 2014 project (unless Snowpiercer and Homesman won't be released until next year as well) we know of...

here are the worldwide release dates:

and the trailer:

I don't know the intricate details, I do know Toumas Kantelinen recorded early 2013 (before May). Rahman is claiming he backed out of the project, on July 12 on his Twitter, but that's over three months after the score was done. So, he was either doing his score seperately from Tuomas, or he's not being honest and he's trying to cover it up.

More Beltrami - always wonderful!

I like Beltrami fine, but was looking forward to a score from Kantelinen. The movie truly does look like a stinker, though. frown

Yes, the film is exactly what a January release promises.

But the score will be interesting nevertheless.

Beltrami seems to be picking up lots of assignments lately. Good for him - I'm certainly happy for a new Beltrami score.

The film looks a bit dodgy, reminds me of Nic Cage's Season of the Witch, but with Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges hamming it up I imagine it will be a worthwhile guilty pleasure for me.

Very excited to see what Beltrami comes up with though, could it be his spiritual successor to Hellboy?

hmm.. it seems that it will take a while until we get to see and hear this one...

According to some information originally Legendary was supposed to distribute the movie through Warner Bros, which is no longer involved and it will be distributed by Universal. Original list of release dates planned for early 2014 is now gone from the official website and it will be most likely delayed quite a bit until new distributor finds better dates for it...

Currently the movie is still listed as January 16th release in Korea and Thailand only. No release dates are listed for US, EU or rest of the world :-(

As far as I know it was a very troubled production and the result did not please anybody.

BeltramiĀ“s score will be the only saving grace.

Hey everyone, just heard the complete score recently and not one single person will be surprised to hear from me that it is AWESOME. People know my enthusiasm for Beltrami's music around here so make of this comment what you will, but for anyone curious to hear Beltrami in full-on powerful huge orchestra fantasy mode, you are in for a true treat. This is one hell of an epic fantasy score, pretty much Beltrami's first, and he excels in this genre without question.

Great themes, complex and furious action material, lots of woodwinds alongside the resonant strings, brass, and percussion, and a strong fantasy element executed by a giant orchestra. The action music is fast and furious like DH5 but minus that score's strong synth element; there are electronics in the score but they play a very minimal supporting role. Outstanding additional music by Roberts and Trumpp as well!

Hoping for a score release, this is big time movie music!

Sadly it will be quite a while till anyone gets to hear it.

The release date has been pushed again, from Jan 17, 2014 to Feb 6, 2015:

So is this Beltrami score going to get a physical release or is it going to be like Snowpiercer and Carrie?
