Well you can definitely hear the edit at 2:40.
Maybe Descent was watching the movie on PAL? 😉
If I recall correctly there’s even a section of the main title piece cut out, near the end. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the film.
You really love this news, don’t you ddddeeee 🙂
This Wednesday, Danny Elfman will premiere his Concerto for Violin and Orchestra 'Eleven Eleven' at PragueProms with violinist Sandy Cameron, conductor John Mauceri and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra. In addition to the concerto, the program will include Elfman’s 'I Forget' from Serenada Schizophrana as well as suites from 'Batman', 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Wolfman', and 'Edward Scissorhands'.✨(Link in bio)

Keep thinking about this. How huge this is. I mean, Danny wrote additional music for THE AVENGERS, adapted Silvestri’s theme into something new, now he gets to do the same thing for JUSTICE LEAGUE. He is literally putting his musical fingerprints on every major comic book character in film today.
Oh I wasn’t talking about money, what I was talking about it is the more intimate scores are obviously a response to the big, loud ones. If all he’s writing is intimate ones, well then where’s the diversity?
Thor, you don’t get those smaller, intimate scores without the big blockbusters. After JUSTICE LEAGUE I’m sure Elfman will turn to something non-film. I just hope he scores DUMBO before retreating into indie land again.
My guess this is DC’s way of moving JUSTICE LEAGUE into the friendlier tone of AVENGERS/GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Elfman is a perfect fit for that tone — he can handle the action, the humor and heart (if all three of those things are in the film!)
I imagine the fanboy hate will ratchet up over the next few months. I’m OK with Tom Holkenborg (can we please call him by his real name already?) but don’t see him as a fit for a Whedon-influenced JUSTICE LEAGUE.
‘The Batman Theme’ returns!
Makes sense publicity for this release did not include “In-depth liner notes by the composer.” 😉
Mine ships Friday — same day as THE CIRCLE!
It’s May 29 – Happy Birthday, Danny Elfman!
Now this thread is officially old.
Yes, but will he also score THE INVISIBLE MAN? 🙂
Fingers crossed it’s on disc from Sony Canada.
Well that’s terrible news. Thanks for the Facebook heads up — I was able to see some of the kind words for Clare.
I’m not sure if I have the message anymore but at one point I received an email from Clare, perhaps by accident. I wish I could dig it up but it might have been lost in the sands of AOL time…
Interesting, this video isn’t exactly new but I just watched it this week. Are you watching me!?! 😉
Got my CD today — man, I wish Danny had scored the whole film. This is fantastic!
I’ve got three new Elfman discs on my desk for the first time in how long? It’s a good time!
Lovely suite is available on Spotify. Piano, strings, guitars and voices.
Wow – mine just departed Phoenix today!
Wow – the concert sounds great. The fact that it will be recorded is even better. It means I won’t have to travel to Vienna to see it! 😉
Link to Amazon.ca for anyone in North America who wants to grab a pressed disc:
The exchange rate to US dollars means the disc retails for $12.70. Shipping is just over $6 US. It’s a bit more than what you’d pay if you ordered off Amazon.com, but at least this way you have an actual legit CD.
M:I is a certainty.
Amazon.ca Sony releases are pressed discs.
I’ve been listening to TULIP FEVER on Spotify and it’s pretty great — while it’s very close to SLEEPY HOLLOW, “Happy Family” is knockout.
