The latest re-recording from Tadlow is a two-disc edition of a film music masterpiece, Miklos Rozsa's Oscar-winning score for BEN-HUR. The set features Nic Raine conducting the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus in their performance of Rozsa's complete, 157-minute score, including cues not featured in the final film.

The latest release from Kritzerland is FULLER AT FOX, a two-disc set featuring remastered versions of scores composed for films directed by Samuel Fuller for 20th Century Fox -- Alfred Newman's score for HELL AND HIGH WATER, and Leigh Harline's scores for PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET and HOUSE OF BAMBOO.

La-La Land has announced that one of their upcoming CDs will be a two-disc expanded edition of Edward Shearmur's rousing symphonic score for the period fantasy adventure SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW. The set is expected to go on sale from the label on September 26, and on September 30, Daniel Schweiger will moderate a discussion about the film and its score with Shearmur and writer-director Kerry Conran at Creature Features in Burbank.

The label has since announced the rest of their planned releases for September. On September 12th, they will release a two-disc editon of one of John Williams' masterpieces, his Oscar-winning score for E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (the label is also working on an expanded/remastered edition of another Williams masterpiece, Close Encounters of the Third Kind), and a compilation titled THUNDER ROAD: THE FILM MUSIC OF JACK MARSHALL, featuring music by the composer probably best known for The Munsters. (Marshall's children include composer Phil Marshall [Kicking and Screaming, Run] and Frank Marshall, the veteran producer [Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Sixth Sense, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button] and director [Arachnophobia, Alive, Congo, Eight Below]).

On September 26th, along with Sky Captain, they will release the score for the 2017 horror film AWAKEN THE SHADOWMAN, by Douglas Pipes (Monster House, Trick 'r' Treat, Krampus).

Variety has reported that, after 27 years of episode scoring that earned him two Emmys and 23 nominations, Simpsons composer Alf Clausen has been informed that the show's producers are looking for "a different kind of music" and will no longer require his services. Given that Hans Zimmer has referred to Simpsons executive producer James L. Brooks as his "best friend" (and Zimmer himself scored The Simpsons Movie), it would not be surprising if Simpsons' scoring duties fell to a series of rising composers from the Remote Control stable.

THE CLUB - Carlos Cabaezas
"Outbursts of violence aside, 'The Club' is mostly mournful. The music, much of it by Arvo Part or Benjamin Britten, is characterized by funereal tempos and keening strings. The natural-light cinematography yields bright exteriors and shadowy interiors, as if divine illumination -- the subject of the line from Genesis that opens the movie -- can never reach the people who live inside the clubhouse."
Mark Jenkins, NPR
LOLO - Mathieu Lamboley
"Luc Besson’s regular cinematographer, Thierry Arbogast, and young composer Mathieu Lamboley, both in their first collaboration with Delpy, help shed some of her indie cred in exchange for a big-screen sheen that seems appropriate for this clearly more mainstream entertainment. If 'Lolo' the film, like its title character, finally does go overboard in its final reel, audiences are unlikely to care, probably reacting with something akin to all-forgiving motherly love to this last act of filial transgression."
Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
