Hildur Guðnadóttir is scoring.

Doyle has written a piece for the King's coronation next month, so he's been writing music fairly recently.

Rumor has it that that's the reason why Doyle isn't scoring this one.

Her score to Women Talking was excellent so I'm curious to see what she comes up with here.

Hildur Guðnadóttir is creating noise.

Fixed...

Now that's a real surprise... Doyle has scored every single Branagh directed movie except for one without any original score (Peter's Friend) and Belfast (because of the Belfast connection, I suppose).

And once again, fucking drone music... mad

Wait and hear. Branagh prefers traditional scores.

But she can't do this kind of music razz

It's obviously hugely disappointing for fans of these two (Branagh/Doyle) that they won't be completing their trilogy of Poirot films together (for whatever reason).
BELFAST didn't really feature much score. Mainly songs and some atmospheric sound FX styled cues by Van Morrison.
So it's understandable why Doyle didn't bother with that one.
But I think we all expected Doyle to write up another Hercule adventure.
Everything I've heard by Hurdy so far has been quite minimal, dour and string-based.
Maybe she will be able to step up and open things out a bit.
Although the film looks like a moody, dark, gothic ghost story, so maybe her forte of bowed strings and percussion are exactly what Branagh was looking for?
And it will nab his film ONE Oscar nomination at least wink

I'm personally surprised these movies are still chugging along. I thought the last one was considered a stinker and a box office bomb.

The first one (MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS) was a pretty big box-office success* and DEATH ON THE NILE takings were blighted by Covid/Post-Covid issues.
I would assume DOTN did well on DVD/BLU-RAY/STREAMING platforms for them to quickly green light this third adventure.



*$350+ mill from a $55 mill budget.

Branagh's staging of the first two movies was wonderful IMHO.

But his interpretation of Poirot was shocking IMHO.

Doyle also missed In The Bleak Midwinter (released as A Midwinter's Tale in the US). It has a spare score for solo guitar, written by actor Jimmy Yuill.

Gudnadóttir wrote a nice, conventional score for Women Talking. It's very different from the more modern/experimental scores she's known for.

I'm just worried and sad to see a Branagh film without Doyle. They're like Williams and Spielberg in my mind, I can't imagine a Branagh film without Doyle and I don't really want to. I hope this is a one-off.

Yes, Branagh & Doyle are such a perfect team-up, you just don't want anything to happen to them.

Any updates?. Was it because of the coronation?.

Are they in good terms?.

Seems to me that they have an extremely close relationship, almost like brothers, so the possibility of a falling out seems very unlikely.

No.

Doyle said this straight as an answer to question during 16. Film Music Festival in Krakow, Poland, 2 weeks ago. He said he was available to compose music for this film, but that was a director's artistic choice. And Doyle did not want to go into more details.

I was there and I've heard his answer.

Kind of like when Peter Jackson felt Howard Shore's score wasn't right for his version King Kong...(Except that this time Doyle never got a chance to try.)
