Interesting new assignment:

Unless he gets balfed at the last moment.

If it's solo this could be good, great even...he wasn't able to salvage Blade Runner 2049's score for me (even though I really liked the film otherwise).

Well, I've yet to hear anything by him I've liked, but with a superhero film and the character it's about, I'll sample it when samples come online.

Not even this one, Justin?

That's my favorite Wallfisch score!

This might be my favorite cue...if he can channel this soaring thematic sound for a superhero score how great would that be?

It's the only thing I've heard from Wallfisch that makes me think he's got real chops. Assuming it wasn't just a fluke or an orchestrator doing all the heavy lifting for him, hopefully he'll land a project sooner or later that will allow him to tap into this sound again!

Is it naive or even old-fashioned in the 21st Century to hope, wish even, that this (second) big screen depiction of Captain Marvel ... ok, Shazam ... has a theme -- a hummable, melodic, memorable, major chord hero's theme -- as recognizable as Williams wrote for Superman or Indiana Jones, or Horner for Willow or Rocketeer, or Goldsmith for Supergirl, or Safan for The Last Starfighter, or Broughton for Silverado, or Rowland for The Man from Snowy River? (And did anyone else hear similarities to Rocketeer in the Justice League Unlimited episode "Clash" for the Captain Marvel leitmotif?)

Try Mully. Beautiful score.

Wallfisch is a spectacularly good composer. SUMMER IN FEBRUARY and DESERT DANCER are so beautiful, they're too die for. He did well on BR too. I'd welcome any new score from him, orchestral or electronic.

LOL

I was about to complain why they are going to make a movie about a music discovery app and then I realized this is something else.

Good call. Hope he delivers. Seems like rolling with Hans the Z has been more favorable to him than his days with Super Dario.

I caught Desert Dancer today and it's a powerful film made even more impactful by Wallfisch's lovely score.

The only other Wallfisch score I have is Summer In February which is another lovely score.

Yes he's very talented. I like a fair bit of his stuff too. The Peter Pan material is exquisite. Thanks Yavar for linking that btw, since I'd never heard it up until recently.

I recommend his delightful score to GAMBA.

He is indeed a good " newcomer". I really like his melodic approach in some cases.
GAMBA and PETER PAN was nice.
But IT was pretty weak ..not to say contraproductive in a way..too much " listen now comes the scare " moments for me.( well the movie itself was a bit weak in terms of transporting the horror instead of just a constant " Boooo " for younger viewers)
But nevertheless I ' m looking forward to his take on SHAZAM!
Hoping for a great theme .

Shazam! will be released by WaterTower Music in April

About Hellboy, nothing for the moment

Summer in February is stunning...but I think my fave of his so far has been Bitter Harvest...really great stuff...the opening track alone sold me.

For anyone intending to attend the Fandango-promoted preview of "Shazam!" on March 23, I would appreciate reading your thoughts on the score.
