Thank God for Ken Kwapis, is all I say.
Browsing the posters in the Odeon last night, you coulda knocked me over when I saw Cliff's name in the credits for this film that looks like a Dolphin Tale/Free Willy mash-up.
It's due out in Feb 2012 in the UK and I would hope Varese will get a CD out, based on their past loyalties to Sir Cliff.
I suppose Cliff is a bit like John Williams at the moment, delivering scores for the one director who will employ him wink
Also cool that it's not a female relationship/buddy/angst drama. That'll be nice.

I recently saw the trailer for this and it looks like it'll do well. Glad to see Eidleman back again. smile

I'm guessing Varese will put this out then (maybe as one of their 1000 copy limited editions). Great!

Now if people could just start releasing some of his older unreleased stuff and expanding/remastering some of his best scores like Star Trek VI, Christopher Columbus, and Meteor Man...

Actually, this will be a regular Varese release (it's on the posters). Might sell only 1000, anyway, but still nice that it's out there.

By the way, Ken Kwapis is a friend, and one of the nicest guys in the entire world. He's been working a long time to get this movie made. I have high hopes.

Splendid news!
A new Eidelman CD in the new year.
Certainly something to look forward to.

It sure is a SHAME that Cliff Eidelman is not working in film more often. Great news !

Yes, will be released in January by Varese Sarabande:


BIG MIRACLE

Inspired by the incredible true story that united the world

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Music Composed by
Cliff Eidelman
(The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants)

Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle.

Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend.

With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales. As the world’s attention turns to the top of the globe, saving these endangered animals becomes a shared cause for nations entrenched against one another and leads to a momentary thaw in the Cold War.

Composer Cliff Eidelman — veteran of such classic franchises as Star Trek and Free Willy, along with The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants — returns here with a sweeping and lush symphonic score capturing the drama and emotion of this miraculous story.

Universal Pictures opens BIG MIRACLE on over 2500 screens on February 3.

Varese Sarabande Catalog # 302 067 131 2
Release Date: 01/24/12

This score never really grabbed me the way a lot of other Eidelman scores have.
It's like he was under strict orders not to gush.
One of his strong points (to me) has always been his ability to get straight to your heart with his music, in a purely emotional way.
Scores like Magdalene, Christopher Columbus, Leap Of Faith, Crazy People and Delirious really sing to me. Even all his chic-flick titles feature some lovely moments.
This one seems to be holding the emotion at arms length.
It's solid, well-written and sounds, at times, very much like Thomas Newman, but I wish he would have been allowed to 'sweep' me away.
Oh well.
