I'm pretty excited about the new Gus van Sant/Danny Elfman collaboration, and Lucius at MFADP just posted the recent trailer:

http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810185074/video/25883115

That's Elfman's music being used, and I love it! Funny about those marimba riffs at the end, slightly reminiscent of Orff's ubiquitous "Musica Poetica", used so well in BADLANDS (and an inspiration for Zimmer's TRUE ROMANCE).

If that is in fact a snippet of Elfman's score, I'm very excited for it (then again I'd be excited anyway). Looks like an opportunity to play in the kind of film Tom Newman used to get all the time.

The film looks pretty good too (especially Mia's hairdo smile).

Elfman already played around with some Newman-isms in MILK and THE NEXT THREE DAYS. Could be really cool. But then again I'm excited for anything the guy's doing (yeah, even REAL STEEL).

The most Newman-inspired score on his resume is A SIMPLE PLAN. Perhaps a little bit in MILK; but I don't hear much in TNTD.

I mean in general. I little bit more ambience and Newman-like piano chords here and there. Not a great lot.

I want to hear this too. like Elfman when he's laid back more than his percussion heavy action stuff. the trailer looks like it calls for a somber type of score which he's great at

Any more news on a soundtrack release of this, even if it only has a single Elfman track or two?

I'm gonna ask again:

Does anyone know anything about a soundtrack release or an upcoming one?

Anything?!?

Nothing new I'm afraid. Looks like the movie itself didn't feel well in the box office. What a shame. Trailer music by Danny was pretty sweet.

btw elfman.filmmusic.com is not workin' for me.

Thanks for the reply, at least.

Looks like this may be the first unreleased Elfman score since Nacho Libre in '06. Too bad; a soft drama score would be an interesting change from the blockbusters on his plate in the near future.

Hopefully someone will step up to the plate and release it late a la "Taking Woodstock."

He also scored Notorious a few years back, which didn't get a full score release (not sure how much music he wrote for the film cos I've never seen it). Like Nacho, the song CD only features one short score track by Elfman.
Shame about this new Van Sant film not getting a release thus far, but who knows what the future holds and I suspect it will surface regardless in the usual areas from the usual suspects.

I've seen NOTORIOUS and it features very little Elfman music. The suite is quite representative, actually.

As for NACHO, a promo was released that contains most of the music.

Well, I've been listening to the LaLaLand CD almost non-stop since I got it. It's so good! Exactly the kind of music (and Elfman) I prefer these days -- mellow, slightly minimalistic, soothing, interesting. Ya gotta dig the Orff/Gassenhauer-feel of "Meet the Parents" -- Elfman has always loved the marimba and here he can take it all out.

I don't know if it's C&C or not, but if it is, it's one of those rare instances where that presentation works very well.

Thumbs up for this!

Yes, I thought this was quite a nice score - Elfman stretching his legs a bit in what is not a typical Elfman mode of late. Definitely worth a buy if anyone is on the fence.
