Giacchino is the new go-to man for genre stuff. But I can so imagine this movie with a John Scott score that draws from the more primal and dissonant parts of his score for Greystoke. Now THAT would be exciting.

Giacchino is a terrible / brilliant choice.

Too bad / thank God Patrick Doyle isn't back.

Business as usual on the FSM board!

My two cents: I was going to be happy whether it ended up being Doyle or Giacchino scoring it, because I like them both (contoversial, I know!), but I did strongly suspect it would be Giacchino as DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is being directed by Matt Reeves, who directed CLOVERFIELD and LET ME IN (both of which were, of course, scored by Giacchino).

I like Doyle a lot and have collected quite a bit in the past few years, but his recent blockbuster scores (Thor, Planet of the Apes) seemed very generic - certainly too generic for somebody of Doyle's caliber. The very same could happen with Giacchino, but it will be impossible to know for another year or so smile

I thought LET ME IN was one of Giacchino's strongest scores, I'm hoping that's due to a solid collaboration with Reeves and that it'll happen again.

Good news.

YOR loves Doyle, but his Ape score is not very good. And the movie is awfull too.

Maybe the next is better...

Yes, if this film features apes riding horse back, then I think Giacchino is a good choice for composer.

Um... why?


I imagine this will be more of an action adventure film. Giacchino did pretty well with John Carter and Star Trek. Though as Ive said before he needs to develop his themes a little more.

I never said there was "music," though that's up for debate. But it IS experimental (in keeping with the POTA legacy, as mentioned earlier) and brilliantly effective (also in keeping with the POTA legacy).

Agreed. I loved 90s Doyle, but in the last few years he's done major in u-turn in the quality of his work. It's like someone left a pod in his basement.

The difference is the POTA scores were music, and not generic sample library crap.

I'm not usually on the Giacchino bandwagon, but his work with director Matt Reeves is career-best stuff to my ears. "Roar!" from Cloverfield and the entirety of Let Me In are some of the finest pieces of film score I've heard. The direction that the PotA series has gone in the 21st Century is exciting, and I have ultimate faith in Reeves' abilities as a filmmaker and Giacchino's abilities as a musical composer. This one is gonna be exciting!

For this life-long PLANET OF THE APES fan, this news is the best thing next to bringing Goldsmith back from the dead.

This was my thought. While watching Rise of the Planet of the Apes, I didn't really notice the music, but I love the album. That said, even though Doyle isn't coming back, I think Giacchino is a wonderful replacement, as I look forward to any of his projects.

And Let Me In had some similarities with Goldsmith, especially The Omen.

Thank God it's not Patrick Doyle.

Personally I thought Doyle's score for ROTPOTA was superb.


I agree and I doubt Giacchino will be able to top it.



I love Doyle's music but PLANET OF THE APES ain't his forte.

We'l'l see on Giacchino. Good composer, but if LOST is the model, then I'm luke warm. Hopefully he can tap into something totally original. He has had some remarkably insightful moments recently with JACK CARTER, SUPER 8, and UP!

"Everything is played live. I don’t use any outside sample libraries except for the occasional wind instrument or something basic like that. I do use quite a bit of Mellotron, and I do sample myself and make my own libraries. There have been very little samples or MIDI on this show. In fact, I don’t think there has been any. I believe the best stuff is hand made and recorded by an experienced recording engineer in an acoustically sound studio. I love to hear real depth and detail in the instruments and I like to hear very dynamic sounds. "

Dude, educate yourself before you make a fool of yourself. Reitzell has been an excellent music recording artist for well over a decade, and 98% of working composers who use synthesizers and other electric instruments don't rely on sample libraries.

I seen the Tim Burton/Danny Elfman movie. Are these new movies totally separate? Do they follow the classic movies at all or totally re-imagined?
