" You and me are done. Professionally"

Thor winging in with huge thumbs up in 3....2.....

....1:

Excellent composer choice! I'm hoping he'll wing it back to the original, all-electronic roots (and not too many RC-isms)!

If Alita/Mortal Engines Junkie is playing this party, I've got a good feeling.

Deadpool Junkie, yeah, he can stay home.

And FilmMusicReporter is reporting it's Junkie XL.


Shit.


I'm not surprised with this announcement. Junkie had this gig in the bag when he resigned from being involved with scoring Deadpool 2 due to Tim Miller leaving for creative differences. He proved his loyalty to Miller which got him upcoming scoring gigs for Sonic The Hedgehog, which Tim Miller also produced, and Terminator: Dark Fate. No to mention Junkie also scoring the recent James Cameron produced Alita: Battle Angel. So in Junkie XL's case it's good to be loyal to Tim Miller. However, I am surprised it took this long to announce a "composer".

With all that said though

Whatever. I have very little (if any) interest in what feels like the 50th installment of the never ending Terminator franchise. Hopefully this one will put the franchise out it's misery for good.

I think Holkenborg has grown considerably as a film composer - so I'm looking forward to this.

And how would that sound be appropriate in the world of the Terminator? Just because those films have machines in them, the tone is very different from anything in the Terminator universe.

Nah, I think he should go back to his own EDM roots, and approach this industrially and hard. Electronic sound design, as an extended evolution of Fiedel's original scores.

Though overall I just can't feel XL's music, I agree with Thor. Junkie would probably be best off just leaning hard on the braaams and electronics (especially given the basic premise of the Terminator films). Sci Fi and electronic scores can be very interesting imo (and there have been cues I liked by JXL...sometimes I think I'm a Golden and Silver age film score enthusiast to a fault).

No 'braaams', necessarily (JXL rarely does that anyway) -- just slick, lean, zithering electronic landscapes that mesh organically with the sound design. Maybe a fatalistic theme at the center to underline humanity's destiny, like in the original Fiedel scores.

Since this is James Cameron back on board a franchise he started, and this being a sequel to T2. It would only be right for the soundtrack to sound as similar as possible to Brad Fiedel's T and T2 scores. Otherwise part of the emotional connection to the stories of Terminator and T2 would be lost.

I was just exaggerating, Thor. I still agree with you, JXL would be far from a terrible choice for this kind of assignment (whether I like him or not).

Too bad Jerry Goldsmith isn't still around....

Usually not a fan of the Holk but Alita was agreeable so maybe we just need to wait a decade longer and the man becomes someone who we actually celebrate (because in 2030 the rest is composed by algorithms/toddlers).

Surely he will now score the Avatar sequel!

I agree, but definitely not for the sake of a Terminator gig
