The film was a passable suspense thriller - but what was outstanding was the score. Watching, I did not know who the composer was but said to myself, 'this is one of our masters no doubt'. Sure enough, it was Elfman. One of the best of his recent works. Especially in the way he punctuated things with those rhythmic Herrmannesque lunges. Looking forward to a release.

Film and score were pretty bad.

This is just getting weird now.
I reckon, if I'D scored a Netflix film it would have had a digital or vinyl release by now, judging by recent weekly release slates.
The fact that one of the BIGGEST, MOST POPULAR film composers of today hasn't had ANY kind of score release, to a mid-high profile film (even if it is a complete dog) is most strange.
Unless one of our labels has managed to tie up a forthcoming deal that excludes any kind of release, but that's highly unlikely.
I would much prefer a release of this score over THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, or his forthcoming THE LAD ON THE BUS wink

I kind of think that the Scott Rudin association is part of why there's been no release (yet?).

My gut feeling is that this will show up as a La La Land exclusive at some point, but who knows?

Possibly John, or the fact it was a Fox film, who got bought by Disney, who then sold it on to Netflix, during its production.
Maybe NO ONE knows who actually owns the music rights!! smile

Oh I'm sure they know, but it was a film that had a super rocky post production process and had to do a number of reshoots. Few seem to like the end result! Perhaps there just isn't much interest from anyone involved?

Hopefully a label have picked it up

There's an Elfman release coming from Intrada - maybe that's it? There's a Disney connection there

Honestly, with Elfman getting his latest solo album out there last week, putting together an album for this might have taken second priority...

As I said earlier in the thread (it bears repeating), we're still waiting for a soundtrack release of Goldenthal's Netflix score OUR SOULS AT NIGHT. It's hard to understand which they deem worthy of releases and which not.
