    Loved the music he did for the Kingsman movies. Looking forward to seeing what he does for this.
    Oh shit! I forgot he did the soundtrack for Kingsman, that's one of my favorite soundtracks.

    Yeah, I gotta say I loved the Kingsman theme and score. I know it's a little disappointing we've not got Silvestri back but I think that was always a long-shot. When I saw Wolverine Composer had worked on Kingsman I perked up quite a bit!
    One of my favorite parts of the Kingsman soundtrack is that it uses the main Kingsman melody in almost every track but does so in creative ways so it never feels stale, while simultaneously giving the soundtrack a unifying and instantly identifiable "theme".

    I really like the initial credits music from 'Captain America: Winter Soldier', and it's the one track you can't buy on iTunes. :P

    Loved his Magneto theme in First Class, and his score for Winter Soldier was very Metal Gear Solid-esque to me. If I had to guess, maybe Silvestri's asking price was too high for Fox, right after they just allocated part of the budget towards 3D.

    I just listened to the Magneto one, thanks for bringing it up. I didn't remember it since it's been so long since I watched 'First Class' but I like it!

    I can't believe they can't have Silvestri for this..thats sad they rather  spend money to convert the movie to 3d.
    Jackman is not a bad composer he was inspired by Silvestri thats clear from  the Kong movie what I liked but this time we miss the opportunity to hear how Silvestri would revisit and extend the universe he created for the first two movie.
    He expressed interest to come back 28 years after Predator 2 and they decide not to call him back? Thats truly sad.He talked about it months ago so they can work out the schedule for him.In Predators soundtrack he's originality was also missed and I hoped Black will bring him back.

    Azamultic - I dont know what to say, really. . there is a zero luck with this movie from its beginning, script is strange if not crazy (I still hope it is huge joke) cast, actors are. . weak, weak is the right word. Constant delays all the time (I dont believe they have planned reshoots when they have numerous delays) and now this, Alan Silvestri is out of the game. The man who defined a couple of times the tone behind our favourite hunter is gone. For me, this is more than about music, guys. . just look at him, Alan Silvestri is really also a good person, he is serious and very intelligent man. I dont believe that Hanry Jackman can do something good as Silvestri, in this video below. . he act more like a child. . nothing against him, but personaly I just dont believe that a human with this type of behaviour can produce the same level of quality as Alan Silvestli himself. Hanry Jackman have totally different character, its a completely different person after all. . you know what I mean? Yes, his score will be propably ok, but it would be far away from Silvestri work, say what you want, I just feel it. Lets wait for a couple of more schocking surprises in the near future, the producton if this movie is still on its way.

    I’m not gonna lie, seeing this news kinda made me sad. I’d have loved for Silvestri to return and see what he would have done differently. Or what he would have added too the soundtrack that he made so iconic in this first two films. Especially since he was pretty vocal about his desire to return.

    Having said that, I’m not against Henry Jackman. He’s a fine composer and I welcome him with open arms. I hope his soundtrack for this film fits in and also stands on its own all at the same time.

    Petr, it could be the schedule problems and technical things. We don't know if Alan is still free, he expressed his interest a while ago.
    What I find funny is that Henry Jackamn said in interview that soundtrack for first predator or the second really impressed him, and did inspired him. Also Hans Zimmer said that Predator 2 has the best action lesson soundtrack. Watch this video on the 39:00 minute

    They rather choose someone who have a zero experience in the terms of a Predator, I dont get this. They dont have enough money or what? Alan Silvestri recent work was on Ready Player One. . that film is finished, he is free right now. . available for anyone, yet they still choose a different composer. I guess that Predators in cargo pants are a hard reality. . judging by all the shocking news about this film.

    Another dissapointment. They could use Arnold as actor, they could use Alan Silvestri as composer. I really dont understand the logic behind this movie, someone has all the possibilities here, but instead choose a different way. Alan Silvestri is the best, anything else would be just a slightly similar, but not good as his scores. Even the fact that a different composer will try to connect his "sounds" with everything that Silvestri does before is very sad, because why try to imitate someone's work, when you can have that same guy (Silvestri) for this once again. Trailer, where is the damn trailer? Give me a proper trailer (huh, maybe we got just a few seconds aka teaser).

    While I'm not completely opposed to Henry Jackman as a composer (I do like a lot of his stuff), I wish we could have gotten Silvestri back. Didn't he even express an interest in returning?

    Well he’s a good composer I just hope thematically he ties his score into the predator universe and expand on Alan Silvestris much loved original score. I hope the tribal rhythms and pounding music comes back!

    Oh I forgot to mention he’s a fan of Alan Silvestris Predator 2 score so guys expect something good from him.
