Not Zimmer:

Well, that's a nice surprise. I remain, however, ready to be disappointed by the score.

There is a Backdraft II? I didn't even know that.

"Show Me Your Firetruck" is now more associated with Iron Chef than it is Backdraft. Somehow I won't miss it.

There will be. In the last few years, Universal has been in a mad rush (emphasis on mad) to sequelize their properties for the DTV market. Thinking about it, it's a wonder it took them so long to get around to Backdraft.

Randy Edelman hasn't scored a theatrical movie since 2015. I can only wonder what the devil happened.

I wonder what the devil happened to William Baldwin, the actor who seemed to be sleeping ONSCREEN !!

I was about to say he is hired because Zimmer allegedly lifted off some notes from his "Fire in a Brooklyn Theater" for the first Backdraft, but I realized that happened during Broken Arrow.

If Hans Zimmer was scoring this, well, between this and that Lion King remake it would have been even more interesting to see how the composer would revisit and/or expand upon the best scores of his early career after so long. Still keeping an eye on Lion King for that matter. Somehow with very low expectation, though

A sequel, really? I didn't think this film needed a sequel. With the long gap between the first and this one it most likely won't do very well.

It certainly didn't NEED a sequel, but I'd be curious to see how it turns out and if/who they'll get from the original, star-studded cast.

Zimmer's score is a favourite of mine, and while Edelman is not on that level, he is not altogether unsuited for the project. Interesting composer casting, for sure, that can go in either direction.

This is quite apt.
I've always looked upon Randy Edelman as the First Zimmer. The Grandfather of Media Ventures.
He seemed to start that homogenised orchestra/synth sound, taking a decent sized orchestra and making it sound like one big Super Synth.
And the anthem-like broad theme, layering it across scenes and itself becoming trailer music heaven.
All things that Zimmer and Co would go on to emulate and tweak.
So yeah, there's simpatico to this.

Well, reading the actual news article that Justin posted about in the first thread, this is not the big budget thing I initially thought -- more like a straight-to-DVD/BR/streaming-type thing with only William Baldwin and maybe Donald Sutherland making repeat appearances from the original cast.

My expectations for the film just plummeted to nothing, but I'm still curious to hear what Edelman brings to the table.

Wow - A Bakdraft sequel 28 years after the original!

And wow - Edelman scoring it! How cool if he used Zimmer's theme.

Wrong. He scored BACK IN THE DAY and LEAVES OF THE TREE in 2016, and MAX 2: WHITE HOUSE HERO last year.

All those films were either released earlier than 2016 or weren't put in theaters, so... It seems the original point still stands.

None of them were released earlier than 2016.

They may not have been put in theaters but they are at least still feature movies...I guess that's the most important thing.

Theatrical means 'released in a theater', so that was an important qualifier. And the only one that seems to have been rrleased theatrically was finished in 2014.

Wrong. You are linking to another film called BACK IN THE DAY, scored by Rob Danson.

Here is the 2016 BACK IN THE DAY film, scored by Edelman:

Ah. Whoops. Guess I stand corrected on that film, then. Hats off to you, sir.

Anyone else thought this was about flatulence?
