Wow, this has enormous potential, if it's done right. Any news of orchestral recording sessions happening?

I was certain that we had a thread on this already, but maybe not.

In any case, someone put out 11 minutes of the score on Youtube. I think it sounds wonderful - laidback, soft Americana. Reminds me of Kamen's OPEN RANGE. Hope the rest of the score is equally good. I love JNH's previous western scores, like WYATT EARP and THE POSTMAN, and this seems like an excellent addition to that particular 'canon':

So who's releasing the CD?

Yes, much more sombre/atmospheric/subdued, in keeping with his post-Zimmer JNH sound.
Much more like The Hunger Games scores than his earlier rootin-tootin Wyatt Earp/Postman style.
But the days of western scores sounding like Silverado are a thing of the past, unless it's a comedy or parody.

Anyone expecting Postman-type score from a GREENGRASS movie either slept during past 15 years or should have his head examined.

Thanks Soldier. I think you've just pointed me towards my next cinema visit. An I'm sure the score will be great.

Yes indeed.
A very good trailer.
And the film certainly playing to Hanks' strengths.
I will also visit a cinema to see this film.
Looking forward to the score too.

Yea, he usually sucks. 'Hidden Life' was just atrocious!

I thought News of the World was a British rag magazine?

Not into Western scores or Western films but JNH is always awesome, so I should like it anyways.

Some people still believe Red Sparrow is a synth score, when is enterally orchestral with some synths.

What a world...

Wasn't that the cover featured in an episode of Family Guy that frightened Stewie?

News Of The World was a British Sunday newspaper rag (not even worthy to wipe ones arse with) that thankfully got sued out of business (or I like to remember it that way...it might be true) AND the title of an earlier Queen album...one I haven't played in years actually. So I will go remedy that.

While I'm excited for a new JNH score, I'm bummed that John Powell didn't get (take?) his chance at a western.

After how much Greengrass fucked Powell's work (the score for Green Zone was re-writte almost 10 times and Henry Jackman in Captain Philips was re-scored), don't surprise of Powell get away from Greengrass.

Also, Powell only wants to score animated and family fare these days.
He deliberately steers clear of adult violence and conflict in films.
