He can do eerie epic like for Winter Soldier:



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.


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?

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).

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.


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


Disappointed that Alan Silvestri isn't doing the score but Henry Jackman is a talented composer.


That's fine for me  :)


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.



The Winter Soldier is the best one but im not very hopefull here :(

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 highly doubt he's not a capable composer, but my general sentiment about this news is "Not good."


Kong theme and the piece from Captain Phillips are both very good. Don't care much for Civil War or Kingsman pieces. He's a competent composer. Hopefully he'll nail it.


The Alien and Predator films have always had amazing composers. Great news.


Loved the music he did for the Kingsman movies. Looking forward to seeing what he does for this.
