2012: May 23: THE WOLVERINE sessions
photographs The recording
sessions for James Mangold's sequel entitled THE WOLVERINE has
started last week and continued until yesterday at The Newman
Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox. The sessions took slightly
longer than originally expected as it was required that major
part of the score was recorded with full orchestra as well as
in stripes spotlighting various groups and offering more
possibilites in the final mix (strings, woodwinds, brass,
percussions). Some parts needed to be recorded in even more
detailed form than that. Anyway, here is a few pictures from
the sessions featuring the composer Marco Beltrami, flute
soloist Sara Andon and composers Diego Navarro and Scott
Glasgow who visited the sessions.

2012: April 17:
Marco Beltrami discusses THE WOLVERINE After
having recently recorded SNOWPIERCER and while he
is currently in London recording his score for
WORLD WAR Z, Marco Beltrami has already started working on his
next project THE WOLVERINE and here is an excerpt from Jon
Burlingame's article in Variety where he mentioned a
few details about his next score: As for Marco
Beltrami, who is just starting to write music for “The
Wolverine” — the fifth cinema outing for Hugh Jackman as the
mysterious, long-clawed “X-Men” character — he says “there
are definitely expectations, just with the nature of the
project. But it’s fun to play with those
expectations.” Even though the story takes place in
Japan, “musically, it’s not going to be overtly Japanese
because it could easily fall into cliche,” Beltrami says.
He does plan on using traditional Japanese instruments
(including the koto and massive taiko drums) but “in a
non-traditional way,” he adds. Director James
Mangold (with whom Beltrami worked on “3:10 to Yuma,” which
earned the composer his first Oscar nomination) “has made
a real original movie here, so there is room for a less
traditional score, less of a cookie-cutter musical
orientation.” He will record in L.A. at the end of
08: new project THE HOMESMAN Earlier this month Tommy Lee Jones started
shooting his upcoming drama THE HOMESMAN, including cast of
TLJ, Meryl Streep, John Ligthgow, James Spader, Hilary
Swank and Tim Blake Nelson. There is currently no release
date set for this ambitious pioneer-era story, but with such a strong
cast, it is already expected to be
one of the contenders of upcoming award season and should
therefore be released by the end of this year.
2012: April 08: CARRIE trailer New trailer for CARRIE
was finally released. Although the movie was originally planned
to be released by now, it has been pushed back until this
year's Halloween, also giving more time to
Marco Beltrami to work on the score considering his
currently superbusy schedule. You can watch the trailer below:
27: THE WOLVERINE: International trailer After two very short teasers released earlier
this week, first full-length THE WOLVERINE trailer was just

James Mangold, following Oscar nominated score for 3:10 TO
YUMA. THE WOLVERINE will be released on July 26th.

announced, it seems that there is finally first sample from
Marco Beltrami¨s score for SNOW PIERCER finally available on
YouTube and you can listen to it below. There was one more
sample claiming to be from the score posted on YouTube but

like it could actually come from the score, which is described
as "hybrid small orchestra/electronic score".

score restore featuring opening sequence of WARM BODIES with full Marco
Beltrami's score, which was partially replaced
with a couple of songs. You can watch both
