Director J A Bayona announced Giacchino's involvement via instagram



AQUÍ VA UN GRAN ANUNCIO: Feliz de volver a trabajar con el compositor Michael Giacchino en #LaSociedadDeLaNieve.
Nos conocimos hace 13 años en el Festival de Música de Cine de Úbeda. Conectamos inmediatamente y hemos sido amigos desde entonces. Por azares del destino, acabamos trabajando juntos en Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, donde compuso un glorioso score que dotó a la película de una personalidad oscura que la colocó en un lugar realmente especial en la saga. Michael es un tipo camaleónico, con un extraordinario talento para brillar en trabajos tan diferentes como Up, Lost, Ratatouille, Super 8, Star Trek o The Batman. La Sociedad de la Nieve es su primera película española (y en español!). Una vez más, su música aporta una voz y una energía especiales, que convierten la odisea de los Andes en una historia que resulta más relevante, esperanzadora y universal que nunca. No puedo esperar a que escuchéis su música y veáis la película!

Farewell Fernando!!

Exactly. Very disappointing news.

On the other hand, It gives Michael Giacchino a break from overtly commercial movies.

Farewell Fernando!!

Wasn't that farewell already a fact with JURASSIC WORLD 2? Seems so, which is very unfortunate. Velazquez is on a whole other level than Giacchino, even if he's been uneven in recent years.

Maybe. But there was always the possibility that JURASSIC WORLD 2 was a studio/franchise situation and Bayona would re-team with Velazquez after that.
But at least FV isn't struggling for work anyway.

Maybe too busy.

Yeah, there's always hope, but such departures after big-time Hollywood blockbusters that require a bigger name seems to be the norm rather than the exception. Like, I love (most of) Zimmer's Nolan scores, but I don't think we'll be seeing David Julyan back any time soon.

That was lovely, thanks.
Like a Spanish flavoured style theme from LOST.
Unmistakable Giacchino.
I hope Quartet (or some other label) can get a score CD issued.

I'm a big fan of The Impossible, so I'm really looking forward to this one. In L.A. most of the Netflix movies get a theatrical run at the Bay Theater in Pacific Palisades (which plays almost exclusively Netflix films) so I hope to see it on a big screen. Most of this fall's Netflix movies (Pain Hustlers, Nyad, The Killer, May December, Rustin, Old Dads) are showing on other LA screens as well, fortunately.

Heh, still not a fan, eh?

Say, that’s really one of the best things I heard from Giacchino in a long time. It really has heart!

I am not the biggest Giacchino fan but I am amused by the hyperbole. Is Fernando Velázquez really on another level compared to Giacchino?

I believe Netflix owns that theater as of 2021, correct?

As for their films seeing wider theatrical distribution it is because of the AMPAS has new rules for eligibility based upon a wider reflection of theatrical exhibition than it was before.

I was not even aware of the Bay until a friend (who follows awards eligibility much more closely than I do) told me about it. I've lived around L.A. for 41 years but I don't think I'd even passed through the Palisades since the 90s.

It's actually a pretty nice theater - "dine-in", but with stadium style seating, so you're not so conscious of food service staff blocking your view during the movie.

Also, at least at the matinees I go to, there are usually few if any other audience members in a given screening. I suspect a lot of their screenings play to totally empty houses.

Netflix has posted 18* cues from Giacchino's score on their FYC site: https://film.netflixawards.com/society-of-the-snow

(*19 cues are listed but "Barren" actually points to "Leaving Home")

But head over to my FYC thread at JWFAN if you're interested in accessing/hearing all 34 cues/source music that Netflix has up on that site: https://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/35418-2023-for-your-consideration-studio-sites-featuring-music/ (scroll down to Netflix in the first post and then expand the "spoiler" under Society of the Snow to see the direct MP3 links)

Yes, a thousand times yes.

Looking forward to this one, as I enjoy Bayona's films. I'm a bit surprised nobody has mentioned Frank Marshall directed a terrific version of this story in 1993. I haven't seen Frank's film since it was in theaters, but the plane crash was terrifying, and the film had a first-class pedigree – a screenplay by John Patrick Shanley based on the 1974 book by Piers Paul Read, starring Ethan Hawke, and a lovely James Newton Howard Score.
