Hopefully it's the first Williams score not to feature leitmotif since who knows when. (Actually, it probably hasn't been all too long.)

You just can't bring yourself to say something nice about Williams, can you...?

CD seems to be getting delayed a little bit...
German Amazon now lists Nov 22nd release date.

Took me two years to write Williams a letter short enough to fit on one page.

Lokutus gets his signature.

Grumble grumble jealousy grumble.

Well, I haven't got the poster autographed, unfortunately... smile I wish I was that lucky smile

It was posted by JoAnne Kane Music Services on their twitter account... but since the poster wasn't available before it was worth posting just for its layout, etc...

Never expected a new John Williams film score for 2013. This is such good news!

OK... let's focus on more important stuff than this bullshit.


No kidding. Will the pointless bickering in this part of the film music world ever end?




This bickering is pointless.

I wonder which one will win Oscar:

Zimmer's 12 Years A Slave

v.s.

Williams's The Book Thief

The Oscar committee really would have to decide upon the ultimate tough question: "who is your favorite victim of historical atrocity?"

"It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found. But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down. The Book Thief is a story about the power of words to make worlds. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time"
-----------------------

I'm guessing some Stanley & Iris meets Schindler with the accordion thrown in smile


How about just tossing THE IMPERIAL MARCH on this and forget about it!

Every time a movie about "Nazi's" comes out-no matter how WELL intentioned-it just inspires ANOTHER generation of "haters"...of ALL stripes...

I am fucking TIRED of "Nazis" and all that they stood for!

MOVE ON!!!

Wouldn't that be us, if we see Zimmer and Gustavo up for nomination?

We're bickering over this score already!! Really?

No, not really. See my non-handwriting-related post:

I'm really curious about this. What will be the basis of such a new collaboration? Will Brian Percival ask for a score with a sound that we know from Williams already, or will he give him free reign to follow his own sensibilities when choosing his approach?
And would Williams - without the baggage of decade-long collaborations or a whole back catalogue of his own music (as is the case in his franchises) stretch beyond what we have come to expect from him?
I'd love him to move more into the territory of his concert works. There's a complexity to them, and at the same time a freshness in sound that might result in something marvelous. If the film allows for it, of course.


The FILM will NEVER "ALLOW FOR IT"-Hello!!!! It's HOLLYWOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
