    Quite exciting, he hasn’t really worked on the sci-fi genre besides Planet of the Apes (and perhaps Mars Attacks!)

    Intriguing. I keep hoping for a proper, heady outer space sci fi from Elfman (other than more quirky stuff like MARS ATTACKS and PLANET OF THE APES). In fact, I asked him this very question on the red carpet interview a couple of years ago, where he replied “Yes, I’m still waiting!”. Maybe this 65 is it.

    I’m really excited by this. Elfman’s sci-fi movies have largely been comedies (Mars Attacks!, Men in Black) or big budget action movies (Planet of the Apes, Terminator Salvation), so this seems like it might be new territory.

    The directors have been hyping it up on social media. They apparently used to temp their student movies with Hulk.

    Adam Driver has a good track record for picking quality projects, too.

    Hopefully this and Multiverse of Madness mark a turning point in the quality of the movies Elfman has been offered.

    Danny’s been praising this in press for Big Mess, calling it ‘great’ and ‘wonderful’

    He’s really not one to hype up the movies he’s working on, so I’m choosing to be really encouraged

    Two good movies in 2022! Willing this into existence

    Apparently this just had a disastrous screening and is about to be completely rethought.

    Some guy on YouTube (I know….) had a video up with footage from the movie and he was saying how a screening just went terribly and they’re going to try and fix it, but that a delay is likely.

    The plot description he gave matches what Elfman said about it (dinosaurs!). It might also explain why he’s seemingly moved on to Doctor Strange 2.

    Hopefully it’s not true….

    Elfman’s curse continues?

    Help us Sam Raimi, you’re our only hope…

    According to this new interview, the cello and percussion concertos are done. No word on 65.

    I’m wondering if Danny’s off this. It was supposed to be done before Doctor Strange, but now that has recorded/is being recorded and there’s nothing on this. The above article even mentioned that he’s moving onto Wednesday next.

    I think Sony moved 65 from mid-May to late April. That might have bunked Elfman’s schedule, so you’re right, he may have had to jump off the project. This is one of those films where no one seems to know anything about it, which in this internet age, is really annoying.

    It must be getting moved further back. It comes out in three months and there’s nada, which might work for an established IP, but not this.

    I’m hoping it all magically works out, because I’m so in for a mostly-electronic original sci-fi movie score from Elfman.

    Elfman’s team have been slowly added to the IMDB page over the last week or so…must be recording soon.

    Chris Bacon is now listed as a co-composer on IMDB.
