    Yes, MIB INT, a few seconds of which orchestra contractor Gina Zimitti shared in an Instagram story.

    Hmmm, nothing on .ca yet. I recently picked up the song track album for completion sake. This would be a more worthwhile addition.

    Yeah, this was a surprise. It literally premieres tomorrow (March 9!)

    Wish the recent Elfman London recordings were closer-mic’ed. I prefer being in the orchestra rather than outside of it.
    Lots of Prokofiev Romeo & Juliet too. Haven’t really picked out the main theme yet, but so far the score is a romp.

    Just finished this up tonight, thanks for sharing the link before I could! Perhaps Elfman’s best interview? It seems like he could have talked forever.

    Looks like Dominic Lewis is scoring this?

    Isn’t that how it always works? 😉

    I hear Elfman vocals at the beginning of that trailer.

    Vinyl coming from Mondo October, 2018:

    I think what you’re hearing is the Schifrin that Elfman worked into his own score?

    My Cd shipped yesterday. It seems like a long Elfman drought is finally coming to an end!

    Nice. Isn’t the theatrical version scored with music from the first film? Hard to tell with all the sfx.

    Beautiful short film. Thanks for posting!

    I’ve downloaded the movie from iTunes in the hopes of syncing up and pumping up “The Tunnel Fight” full length version in Premiere, but dammit if they haven’t hacked it to shreds, rearranged things and tracked in different music. The full length cue contains more music than what’s in the sequence, and the sequence seems to have at least two inserts from the score that don’t seem to be on the album. It’s turned into a real nightmare of a project.

    Where’s “Mother Russia”? 😉

    Looking at it now, surprised at the number of scoring session photos!

    Individual tracks do not indicate what contains “additional music”, but my guess is the Zanelli contribution was at least the use of “Krytpon Theme” from Hans’ MAN OF STEEL, which is not on the disc.

    Anyone get their CD copy yet? Mine is sitting in my mailbox. Can’t wait to get my hands on it (yes, I still love this score.)

    Well that’s the great thing about being a Danny Elfman fan in 2017 — you can be satisfied by JUSTICE LEAGUE or THE CIRCLE. Either way everyone wins. 🙂

    I think there’s gonna be a song or two here. Awesome news.

    Saw the movie this afternoon and didn’t find it as bad as the critics have made it sound. Yes, weak villain, but this alone can’t sink the picture. I really love the score and have listened to it non-stop since its release. In the film it is often buried, like mentioned before, the single, clear statement of the Batman Theme is buried under a couple of explosions. But the action music is so strident, interesting and energetic that I can’t help but, er, marvel at it.

    I would love to see if some alternate sequencing would considerably change the makeup of the score. If I recall “Wonder Woman Rescue” occurs before “Enter Cyborg”, and “Bruce and Diana” is actually before “Cyborg Meets Diana”… or maybe I’m developing memory loss. Elfman usually sequences in film order so perhaps I’m wrong about all of this.

    A few thoughts on the score as heard in the film… The first proper cue in the film is “Batman on the Roof”. “Wonder Woman Rescue” is actually longer in the film. It opens with the cue as heard on the album before segueing into a statement of the Wonder Woman theme, before going into someone pretending to write busy action music by Danny Elfman (maybe the Pinar Toprak cue?)

    There are two Elfman cues in the end credits — the “Spark of the Flash” motif (not sure which cue it comes from) and “Anti-Hero’s Theme”, which plays in its entirety.

    If this score has one thing wrong with it, it’s that it has too many ideas. I think that’s probably a good problem to have?

    Thanks guys. The baby has already been subjected to endless hours of Elfman in the womb. She should know every note of Justice League by the time she arrives!

    Got it guys. A board member messaged me a screenshot this morning. I thought it was a board issue but it’s not. There is an older Flash video on the homepage that is causing this (I think it’s the Dark Shadows one.) I’ll remove it today. Looking at the homepage only reminds me how futile the site relaunch is becoming. My wife and I are expecting baby #1 early December so my life has been taken over getting ready! 🙂
