Q
Will Kaplan - sound editor - is working on temp score for test screenings.

Quote
Sometimes, Kaplan uses his extensive knowledge of movie soundtracks to create temporary, or "temp," scores for movies in production.

"Like right now, I'm doing a 20th Century Fox film called 'The Predator' directed by Shane Black," Kaplan said. "I'm putting in a temp score for test audiences. These guys gotta see it with music or they don't know how they feel about it."

Kaplan said that filmmakers sometimes become so enamored with the temp score, they use it instead.

Some filmmakers give Kaplan free rein to create his own sound cues. Others know exactly what they want.

Seems a bit earlier for test screenings. I wouldn't have expected them for another 3 months or so. I wonder how much work a temp score takes?

I really have no idea what to think about this movie... and after watching it I'll probably still feel the same.

Testscreenings can really ruin a movie.

The test screening for this movie will be interesting. I think it's good that they're doing them so early because of how radically different this Predator film is going to be. If the response is negative, it will give them time to re-shoot and change some stuff.

I hope they invite experts from our forum and then they will have big problems and they will invite a new audience who will say to reduce violence and add family themes and phemenism.

I don't know what to expect from this film either. Maybe it will  be good, maybe it will be bad?

Fox has a lot of sci-fi films on its schedule- it could be something else. But the invite does mention Predator and Alien franchise.

I'd heard about that earlier too. Also asked if you'd seen Prometheus or Alien: Covenant recently too but not sure how relevant that is. Black mentioned recently they were working on the edit at the minute. Hopefully we'll hear something.

Also, did you mean to delete those posts MrPeterKeyes?

It asks if you are a fan of alien/predator franchise, die hard franchise and Jurassic park franchise.
Shane also posted that photo of him and Sterling doing ADR last week. Would not surprise me if this is the very first screening but in very rough form--- no cg.
Paul Feig did the same thing with the Ghostbusters remake- tested it on the Sony lot early on with zero effects then did more screenings in regular theaters that had some of the effects in.

If it does have no CG, it must be weird and ugly to see...
