...so who's handling the soundtracks? big grin

The series is celebrating 35 years, and there are already big announcements being made. Others involved in the IDW comic series are also teasing many surprises in store. I can't wait.

The last update from MV on the won't happen/still trying/isn't possible tug-of-war on "Ghostbusters" was somewhere from the first half of last year:

"On going lol"

Previously it had been they tried and tried and tried but had no luck.

I don't think I've seen an update on the score to the sequel in some time now.

It appears there's an awfully good reason why it hasn't happened yet, and I'm guessing it has something to do with the bold, satisfying appearance of Bernstein's score in this teaser for the new movie (just released today):

Nah, this has been going on for years now. This new film was only just announced last year. It might be the reason now.

My point is that these developments might explain recent reluctance on Sony's part.

This new film is going into production within a few months. The script is done. It was greenlit some time ago, as studio wheels don't move fast. It was likely initiated a year ago.

It's a surprise to us, but wheels have obviously been in motion for long enough to affect licensing choices at Sony for the past six or nine months.

My dream is a Ghostbusters soundtrack that acknowledges the song-score duality and would include:

1.) The film mixes of the Alessi Brothers’ “Savin’ the Day” song that has the added melody line and clean endings. These were especially done for the film.

2.) The long version of “Cleanin’ Up the Town” with the instrumental section tracked into the film.

3.) The film version of the refrigerator sequence, even if this was created after Bernstein completed his main scoring duties.

4.) The long version of “Magic” with the instrumental section heard in the montage sequence in the film. An edit including the Bernstein synth overlays might also be interesting to have.

5.) A recreation of the “End Credits” with the songs and score edited together. As odd as it appears on paper, it works OK musically, I think—although perhaps living with it for 35 years blinds me to the flaws. But it needs to be done in stereo rather than the “mono with ambience” way the songs were dubbed into the film.

6.) A reworking of the score elements with a different approach to the sonics.

But given licensing from multiple entities, perhaps the above is not feasible. Who knows.

The Alessi Brothers released a CD a few years ago with every mix they did of the song.

I'd also like to add both source cues (the hotel and the restaurant) which were in full in the bootlegs. Each only used partially in the film. Like a poster above me, I don't care if these were done by somebody else.

This is one of the few rare films I wouldn't mind if a CD of the songs was released along with the score. Off the top of my head, I think I can only say that about two or three films.

Yes! I have this and it’s a great memento but does not seem to be a full CD bandwidth mastering.

I don't recall the karaoke version being available when I ordered it a few years ago, though...

I would love for that wonderful Bernstein score to get a new release too. The strange irony of this announcement for me is that it comes one week after I finally purchased the soundtrack album (not the now overpriced OOP Varese score album). Many good songs on it. It was the first time I heard Magic outside the movie and for more than two minutes, I thought that the album featured some completely strange alternate version of it... until the song switched gears into the awesome part we hear in the movie. The Keith Forsey touch always makes a difference!

Back to the score, can someone explain the link between working on a new Ghostbusters movie and preventing the score of the 35-year-old original movie from coming out? I am not saying it's not true, I just really don't get it. I also recall the LLL folks saying that the Beverly Hills Cop releases were blocked for a while because of plans for a new sequel. But why? How would a reissue of the original score interfere with the marketing and release of a new movie? The way I see it, it can only fuel the hype! If someone knows the answer, please explain.

To use that hype for the new movie. If they license it a year or two before the new project comes out, any excitement/profit generated will be diluted over time.

Just read the supposed description of the new movie in dragon53's post:
GHOSTBUSTERS 3---sources claim the new sequel's lead characters will be two teenage boys and two teenage girls and the plot involves a, “family who moves back home to a small town…[and] learn[s] more about who they are and the secrets of the town itself.”

If even half of this is true, the Jason doesn't get it. And apparently never got it.

You think Sony are gonna keep this under wraps for this long then let details leak out to anonymous douchebags on the internet the day after they announce it?

You think Sony let the details leak and that I thought that?

I like games of Stupid Questions.

Well that does not sound good at all.

Yes, let us hope this turns out to be nothing more than a rumor.

But re-thinking the trailer, what did we see? A barn out in a field. Maybe this is the small town.

And this family just happens to be related to one of the original leads, who long ago parked the Echo1 in the barn for storage.

So the trailer has to mean something; it wasn't a barn for no reason. Having said that, obviously this rumor could just be a well-crafted lie.

I googled this and it comes up. Perhaps this is the direction they are going in.

Anything that breathes new life into the franchise I'm totally cool with.

What needs to be revived is West End Games's RPG. One of my favorite systems.

    If they fight Deadites, I'm all in!
