The latest release from Intrada is an expanded and remastered two edition of John Williams' score for the 1986 juvenile adventure SPACECAMP. They have also released a newly remastered edition of Craig Safan's THE LAST STARFIGHTER.

Their latest Kickstarter project will be raising funding to re-record two Bernard Herrmann scores - the thrilling ON DANGEROUS GROUND, and Alfred Hitchcock's remake of his own THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, the only Hitchcock-Herrmann score which has never received a commercial release (apart from re-recordings of selected cues).

Varese Sarabande is expected to announce their latest limited edition CD Club releases today.

At the 94th Oscars on Sunday night, Hans Zimmer won the Original Score award for DUNE, and Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell won Original Score for "No Time To Die," the third consecutive Bond movie song to win the Oscar.

Given all the news and Internet attention to the historic event of Zimmer winning his first Oscar since The Lion King 27 years ago, you probably didn't hear that Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage for making a remark about Smith's wife's hair. If you're interested, you can probably learn more about it on the Google.
