Elfman is scoring Joe Wright's new thriller. He mentioned it in this interview.

Replacing Reznor/Ross (thankfully):

Cool! This is the kind of project I want from Elfman, rather than the big and loud blockbuster action extravaganzas.

(I love Reznor and Ross' work too, but I'd like them to do more non-thriller things).

I guess the Wright/Marianelli partnership has hit an iceberg (that or a scheduling conflict), but I'm always up for an Elfman score.

Marianelli hasn't been interesting since 2011, so I'm OK with that.

I am looking forward to this movie. I loved the novel. It had a lot of Film Noir and Hitchcock references.

The book was also a reimaging of a particular movie, but I won't spoil it here for anyone.

The book is highly derivative airport fiction and the film has been plagued with problems, necessitating extensive reshoots. Lower your expectation ... NOW.

Reshoots because of producer bully Scott Rudin (read the report on his despicable behavior in THR).

Danny Elfman fans can hear his latest score for this film next week (Friday May 14), when it drops on Netflix.
I'm sure an album release will follow.
Digital for sure.
LP...most probably.
CD...there's an outside chance (Netflix films do get occasional CD releases).

I love The Girl on the Train, so I'm looking forward to this one.

Does anyone know when scores to Netflix movies are normally released?

Score is very much a mash-up of Elfman in Herrmann mode and in Girl on the Train mode. I thought a few earlier scenes were overscored, but mix between old and new really started to work for me by the murder scene. Some odd vocal stuff (Petra Haden?) in a few cues as well. The music is mixed well.

Movie is very messy, which seems to be the case for almost all the movies Elfman scores these days...

And for Elfman himself too.

Wow.
Messy is an understatement.
It's a car crash.
It's about 100 minutes long and around 80 minutes of that is scored.
You know that's a sign of a troubled film.
The music is text book Elfman, combining the modern/vibey sound of his (The Girl On The Train) with the old school dramatics of things like Dolores Claiborne and Red Dragon, plus one major lovely/sad cue for a flashback sequence.
The music was easily the best thing about the film.
There's a bit in the final confrontation sequence (film I mean) that makes no sense whatsoever.
We actually had to rewind and watch it again to see what happened, and it still made no sense.
Film = 3/10
Score = 6.5/10 (for all the heavy lifting).

Yes, Petra Haden did the vocal bits, which were cool and David Buckley did additional score (it's usually him or Chris Bacon).

Still nothing...

The film is on my Netflix watch list, so I'll tread carefully in this thread to avoid spoilers, but in terms of Netflix films and TV shows getting a soundtrack release (digital or otherwise), it seems to be "bingo". A lot of non-descript stuff has a release, while we're still waiting for Goldenthal's OUR SOULS AT NIGHT. Not that it's a spectacular score or anything, but far more interesting than a lot of the other scores they put out. Maybe Elfman's WINDOW WOMAN will get a similar fate, but I hope not.

Quite strange.
There's usually a digital release just before or on the film release date.
I know Milan have released CDs of Netflix titles. Don't know how that goes cos this was a Fox purchase, who are owned by Disney now.
There's enough interesting stuff in the score for me to want a release. A CD would be a bonus.
But yeah, the radio silence is weird.
The film is still awful.

The film was OK. Not great, not bad, imo.

I did find the score interesting, so came here to see what people said about the release...oh well, lol

The movie was an embarassing piece of shit. Elfman's score was interesting, but I don't know if I'd buy a CD.
