The latest release from Intrada is a greatly expanded, two-disc edition of composer Michael Kamen's biggest box-office hit, the revisionist 1991 swashbucker ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES, starring Kevin Costner, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Morgan Freeman, Christian Slater and the late Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The original soundtrack release on Morgan Creek featured 50 minutes of Kamen's score; Intrada's edition features 110 minutes plus 24 minutes of extras (though it does not include the film's hit song "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You", which earned Kamen his first Oscar nomination).

The latest release from La-La Land is STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE VOL. 2,  a four disc set featuring episode scores by Paul Baillargeon, David Bell, Jay Chattaway, Dennis McCarthy and Gregory Smith.

Varese Sarabande has announced three new soundtracks in their Limited Edition series of contemporary score CDs - the National Geographic Iraq War docudrama series THE LONG ROAD HOME, scored by five-Emmy winner Jeff Beal (House of Cards); the 2017 documentary MULLY, scored by Benjamin Wallfisch (Blade Runner 2049, Hidden Figures, It); and the adventure film THE RENDEZVOUS, scored by Austin Wintory (Captain Abu Raed, Grace).

BAFTA has announced their 2017 award nominations, including Original Music:

BLADE RUNNER 2049 - Benjamin Wallfisch, Hans Zimmer
DARKEST HOUR - Dario Marianelli
DUNKIRK - Hans Zimmer
PHANTOM THREAD - Jonny Greenwood
THE SHAPE OF WATER - Alexandre Desplat

Last weekend, Desplat's Shape of Water won the Golden Globe for Best Original Score - Motion Picture, while Benj Pasek and Justin Paul won Best Original Song - Motion Picture for The Greatest Showman's "This Is Me."

"The film is inspired by 'Dark Horse,' Jim Marbrook's 2003 documentary about Potini. Robertson spent time with the real life Potini while adapting his story into a dramatic feature. He has a great respect for the bare bones of the story, and relishes the exuberance of the kids, their different personalities, their transformation into competitors. The chess tournaments are total nail-biters. Dana Lund's score pulses beneath much of the action, throbbing single notes that underline the urgency, rather than manipulating audience-response."
Sheila O'Malley,

EQUITY - Alexis & Sam
"And none of this is rushed or spoon-fed to the audience with the simple, flirty voiceover narration of films like 'Wolf Of Wall Street' or 'The Big Short.' Fox's script doesn't waste time on exposition, or on spelling out the themes. This is the rare movie that trusts its audience to be grown-ups, with decent IQs and attention spans, and a strong intellectual interest in the ways the characters consider boosting or betraying each other. There's a chilly formality to the locked-down cameras, the muted lighting, the quiet, insistent score, and the blunt, confrontational conversations. If 'Equity' does resemble a recent Wall Street movie, it's David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis,' with a financial-thriller plot replacing the movie-long limo-ride gimmick. But Menon's film is still closer to a Steven Soderbergh drama, with the many-limbed plot sprawl and the muted tone to match."
Tasha Robinson, The Verge

"The film does a good job of showcasing women's ambition and their right to pursue the same golden dream as men. But it does so in a pretty uninspired way, backed up by music that is trying and failing to sound like Trent Reznor's masterful 'Social Network' score, and with a surplus of quick cuts and frenetic editing."
Amy Rowe, New York Daily News
