Hellboy, Blade2, Mimic and Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark...
Yes, Marco Beltrami!

How terribly unexciting.

Hmm... interesting! Since when is he "a high profile composer who is very popular right now"? I know for sure now, I will ignore the movie. Pass!

What a waste...to go from talented composers like Naverrate, Beltrami, Elfman to....

Agreed.

wait to see... Del Toro is a kind of director Ramin has never worked with before. I find it very interesting since Del Toro loves film score indeed, and we know that good directors tend to pull the best result out of any composer.

I generally don't decide to skip movies I'd otherwise want to see based on the composer (although I _have_ seen movies I would have skipped otherwise because I've liked the soundtrack).

Del Toro is a wonderful filmmaker, and I'm really looking forward to whatever he does next, regardless of who is scoring it.

Get ready for more noise and ripped off Zimmer cues!

Don't be surprised if this gets rejected though.

I'm still very curious about the movie the score not so much. Very disappointing that Del Toro would sink this low for a composer. I wonder why Javier or Beltrami weren't availiable.

Beltrami's been busy with several projects lately (The Surrogate, World War Z, Blackbird, A Good Day To Die Hard and replacement scores to The Woman in Black and The Thing) while Navarrete only seems to do one film a year. Neither one likely had open spots in their schedule.

I was really hoping for Howard Shore on this one, especially since del Toro hinted an award winning composer.

It's not like he hired Tyler Bates.

I never thought much of Djawadi's music until his surprisingly good FRIGHT NIGHT score, so I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt.

yeah take it easy on ramin. he's got some good stuff out there. seems quite good with the low strings. i was also really surprised by fright night. paired with game of thrones i started to take notice of the guy. this could be a good pairing. though am kind of sad he's not back for wrath of the titans. thought he has some cool track sin that.

Though I stopped watching the series around holidays, I really enjoyed Djawadi's work on PERSON OF INTEREST. The action had a great groove and was a lot more melodic than I was expecting. Hoping he steps up his game for GoT season 2, and hopefully Del Toro can inspire Djawadi to do something worthwhile on Pacific Rim.

Oh man that's awesome I didn't know he was doing the music for Person of Interest. I love his TV action/thriller scores...Prison Break, FlashForward, Threshold. I'll have to check it out.

I've enjoyed a great deal of Djawadi's work, so I'm optimistic about Pacific Rim, but at the same time I am extremely disappointed that neither Elfman nor Beltrami won't be on board, because I can imagine their music for this film to be spectacular.

Even though the milk has been spilled, I choose not to cry! smile

Yes! That is just how imagined it would look. Bring it on del Toro!

I do wish del Toro went with Beltrami or Navarette on this one. I'm not anti-Djawadi (LOVE his Game of Thrones stuff), but I can already see the backlash this score is gonna have.

From seeing the trailer, this looks like the flop of 2013. For one, who does this movie appeal to besides teen boys? Second, they are playing the material way too straight. This would look far more interesting if it were a tongue-in-cheek comedy that spoofed giant monster movies along with the overplayed "military vs. aliens" sub-genre. And last, del Toro feels like the wrong director for this project. This feels like the type of film that Stephen Sommers would have made a fun two-hour ride.

I would not be surprised if the film did severe damage to del Toro's career.

I think it looks not bad. Turn out better? Have to see. But I`m glad it did *not* go the spoof/comedy way. Its too easy to make light of serious drama... I think thats an easy out for artists who aren`t capable enough to produce serious drama themselves.

Besides, maybe the Transformers series is already filling the spoof role...

Thanks for the trailer link (and the trailer wasn`t too long! wow!).
