I was just thinking that since Alan Taylor is apparently directing the movie that maybe Carter Burwell will score. He was originally set for Thor: The Dark World before Marvel intervened, Taylor later said Burwell is his favorite living composer and still seems very frustrated with that decision.

That would be interesting if Carter Burwell would end up scoring the next Terminator movie.

However if Taylor brings Thor: Dark World composer Brian Tyler with him that too would also be interesting. Well the other day I was listening on Tyler`s AVP:R soundtrack and well if you listen to track 3 on that CD it sounded a little bit like it could have been written for a future Terminator movie.

So what do we know about a "Terminator 5"? I hope it takes up from 3 and NOT from the PREquel 4!!!

Any news? Fiedel? Beltrami? Elfman? Or someone else entirely? Given that the surname appears to be "Genesis," I'd love if Fiedel made a reappearance with another spectacular electronic/synth score!

Bear McCreary. His work on THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES is my favourite in the franchise outside the original score.

I wish Hollywood would let the Terminator franchise RIP already. They keep burying it into the ground with each movie post T2. I'm sure T5 won't change that.

Well if it's anything like the garbage scores by beltrami and elf man, then it's better to watch the movie with the sound off.

I didn't care for any of the first three scores, so if it's a returning composer I'd only hope for Elfman. Burwell seems like a really interesting choice, though.

I've really liked all the scores for the series. The first one is the only album I don't really play at all, but Fidel's T2, the Beltrami score, and the Elfman score are all top notch for me. That said, since it's a reboot, I don't really want them bringing any of the previous composers back (except for maybe Brad Fidel himself).

Turns out it's Christophe Beck.

I already heard many of the scores of Beck,and recently edge of tomorrow and this is just unlistenable and dull,this guy is a purge.

Wow...and here's me thinkin Beck is one of the bright spots in my film music future!
Go figure.

Edge of Tomorrow is not typical of Beck's talent.

I really like the Edge of Tomorrow soundtrack, it's badass. A modern score, though. I really like the End Credits cue.

But that's exactly the mode he'll be in when he scores this. I doesn't take a time traveling robot to be able to figure that out.

Yep.
While Edge Of Tomorrow found Beck phoning/droning a score in as per the producers' wishes (as he stated in a film music seminar, he was told to avoid long lines and melody), it is NOT a good example of some of the fine work Beck has done in the years past (most of which has never been released).
BUT, as Shaun says, it's a good bet Beck got the Terminator gig BECAUSE of the score he delivered for Edge Of Tomorrow.
Having said that, I really like 3-4 tracks from the EOT score and the stuff I don't like worked well enough in the film.

I also think Elfman's T4 score is hugely underrated and the best of the bunch for me, although the Fiedel stuff is more iconic.

Agree about Elfman's Terminator: Salvation. Fiedel's will always be the most memorable, but Elfman's was a terrific modern take in his own style that just suits the world of Terminator so well. There's a lot of emotion in his score and some great action writing. I love the main theme and its many variations.

I've never listened in-depth to anything by Beck, but I really should check out Edge of Tomorrow at some point.

I really liked Beck's music from Buffy, but his feature scores just do nothing for me at all.

Just out of curiosity, but why is this a good bet? While critically well-received, Edge of Tomorrow didn't exactly set the box office on fire. Better relative performers scored by Beck include Frozen, Percy Jackson, and The Hangover. The man, like John Debney, is a chameleon, able to provide whatever is asked for. Why should we assume that that's going to be the Edge of Tomorrow sound and not in the same ballpark as the directions Beltrami, McCreary and Elfman have taken the music for this property?
