Intrada plans to release one new CD next week.


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently announced their updated rules for the 92nd Academy Awards, to be presented in 2020. As with the most recent Awards, there will be 15-entry shortlists for both the Original Score and Original Song categories. There is still the option of an Original Musical category which "may be activated only by special request of the Music Branch Executive Committee to the Board of Governors in a year when the field of eligible submissions is determined to be of sufficient quantity and quality to justify award competition."

The Foreign Language Film award will now be known as International Feature Film, and its shortlist has been increased from seven to ten films but otherwise the category rules will remain the same. Makeup and Hairstyling will now have five nominations instead of three, and a shortlist of ten films instead of seven.

The latest score CD from Intrada is the direct-to-video sequel BACKDRAFT II, which brings back two stars, William Baldwin and Donald Sutherland, from the 1991 Ron Howard-directed firefighter mystery-thriller. Hans Zimmer scored the original film, but the new sequel features a score by veteran composer Randy Edelman, whose feature career began in the 1970s but is best remembered for a streak of hits in the 1990s including Kindergarten Cop, My Cousin Vinny, Beethoven, The Last of the Mohicans (a shared credit with Trevor Jones), Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, Gettysburg, The Mask and While You Were Sleeping.

The latest release from Intrada is a greatly expanded version of Joel McNeely's orchestral score for the period adventure IRON WILL, starring Mackenzie Astin, Kevin Spacey and Brian Cox. The score was previously released by Varese Sarabande on a CD featuring 31 minutes of score; the Intrada release features 69 minutes of McNeely score, followed by source cues arranged by the composer.


La-La Land has announced the track list for their brand new two-disc set THE QUINN MARTIN COLLECTION - VOL. 1: COP AND DETECTIVE SERIES. Disc One features two episode scores for Barnaby Jones, composed by Jerry Goldsmith and Bruce Broughton, respectively, and two episode scores for the Burt Reynolds cop series Dan August, both composed by Dave Grusin. Disc Two features a Most Wanted episode score by Lalo Schifrin; the pilot movie score and one episode score for Cannon, both composed by John Parker; and themes for additional Quinn Martin series -- Bert D'Angelo/Superstar (Patrick Williams), Caribe (Nelson Riddle), The Manhunter (Duane Tatro) and Tales of the Unexpected (David Shire).


One of the best unreleased (on physical media) scores of 2018 will be released on vinyl as a two-disc set courtesy of Mondo. As "the first release in our MCU soundtrack series," Mondo will release Christophe Beck's score for ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, which will feature 14 additional cues not included on the download version. One hopes this new series may include vinyl releases of Pinar Toprak's Captain Marvel and Alan Silvestri's Avengers: Endgame, neither of which has yet been announced as a CD release (Hollywood Records has just announced a score CD for Avengers: Endgame, due May 24)

Quartet has announced three new soundtrack releases -- Michael Giacchino's score for the 2017 drama THE BOOK OF HENRY; Rachel Portman's music for the hit family film A DOG'S PURPOSE (both of these score were previously released as downloads by Backlot Music); and Fernando Velazquez' score for the comedy-thriller 70 BINLADENS.


The latest limited edition CD from Varese Sarabande is a two-disc set of Stu Phillips' music for the hit-TV 80s series KNIGHT RIDER, featuring the cues featured on the original, out-of-print Film Score Monthly release as well as a second disc of additional material chosen by the composer.
