Logan Score Preview

It’s no secret that a new Logan trailer is coming soon. 20th Century Fox is sending out the frames of the trailer to some lucky fans to assemble online (they’re on the way already), and the new glimpse at the Wolverine sequel should be coming shortly thereafter.

In the meantime, director James Mangold is holding fans over with some new images from the set featuring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and franchise newcomer Dafne Keen as X-23. Plus, he’s also release a snippet of the score from The Wolverine composer Marco Beltrami (not Cliff Martinez), and it sounds rather haunting and frantic.

Logan trailer - Hugh Jackman

Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” served as the perfect soundtrack for that first Logan trailer released last fall, capturing the film’s melancholy tone and gritty vibe. But what about the film itself? What kind of music will we be listening to while Hugh Jackman hacks and slashes his way through one last Wolverine movie?

Previously, the word was that Cliff Martinez (Drive) would be scoring the X-Men spinoff. However, we’re now hearing that he’s quietly dropped out and been replaced by Marco Beltrami, who worked with Logan director James Mangold on The Wolverine and 3:10 to Yuma. More on the new Logan composer below.  Read More »

When it rains, it pours. The very first official images from Fantastic Four hit today, and now we have even more new details from the so-far mysterious superhero movie.

Director Josh Trank has confirmed that Philip Glass is scoring the film with Marco Beltrami. In addition, he cites David Cronenberg as an influence on the look and feel of the film. More about the Fantastic Four Philip Glass score and David Cronenberg inspiration after the jump.  Read More »

Ant-Man

Ant-Man and Fantastic Four open within three weeks of each other this summer so their post-production schedules are pretty much on the same track. We just got an Ant-Man trailer, and should get a Fantastic Four trailer during the Super Bowl if rumors turn out true. Plus, behind the scenes, each film just officially announced a key member of the creative team: the composer.

On Fantastic Four, which is directed by Josh Trank, they’ve hired Marco Beltrami. He’s no stranger to the superhero genre having scored The Wolverine, Hellboy and Blade II. Recently, he did the score for Snowpiercer but is probably best known for his work on the Scream movies.

For Ant-Man, directed by Peyton ReedChristophe Beck will provide the score. He too has worked in the superhero genre before, with Red and R.I.P.D, but has also worked with Reed before on Bring it On and recently did Edge of Tomorrow and Frozen.
