Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPAug-29-2013 11:53 AMThe link is the word "Godzilla" highlighted in red at the top of the page. P.S I'm using mobile so I don't know how to.

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPAug-29-2013 12:00 PMwell i been to the site and no where does it say anything regards to an announcement for composer. i been trying to get confirmation. I checked on IMDb for Alaxendre Desplat and nothing listed him as composer unless there is another Alaxendre Desplat and Legendary Facebook page does not have anything either. if you can find and post the link please do so that says Legendary did announce it.thanks

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPAug-29-2013 12:19 PMIf you look at the list of legendary pictures movies it will have Godzilla (of course). click on it and travel to the synopsis. Below that it will list the crew that helped. at the very end it says "The score is being created by Oscar- Nominated composer Alaxandre Desplat (Argo, The Kings Speech)".

GodzillaAdmin5334 XPAug-30-2013 1:29 AMTeam GhidorahBefore people get their panties in a bunch about the fact Desplat composed Twilight, lets remember there are plenty of great composers who have composed terrible films: Hans Zimmer - The Lone Ranger, Broken Arrow, The Holiday...etc... Brian Tyler - Dragonball: Evolution, Alien vs. Predator: Requiem John Williams - Star Wars prequels Jerry Goldsmith - Star Trek V, Small Soldiers, Rambo III Just because he did [i]Twilight[/i] doesn't mean he's a bad composer.

He's done a lot of movies that were nominated for Oscars, as well as having his Fantastic Mr. Fox score nominated. Listening to music off his official site, I'm excited to say that his stuff doesn't sound all similar. As good as John Williams is, since he's done so many movies, his material started to sound the same. I like Mr. Desplat's Zero Dark Thirty score. It is dark, and I actually like the track he uses on his site. The pulsing and dragging strings, the dark sounding horns. It's not exactly what I would use as Godzilla's theme but it's got a very similar element to what I would like to hear in the movie.

GodzillaAdmin5334 XPAug-30-2013 2:02 PMTeam GhidorahVery true, but his indie/foreign film credits far outweigh his Oscar/blockbuster credits. Not that this is a bad thing. Edwards comes from the same place, quite literally-- Jumping from the indie world to the blockbuster. So it sounds like the two will really understand one anothers language, which is very important. I do need to give Mr. Desplat's [i]Zero Dark Thirty[/i] score a chance. As it stands I really enjoyed his stuff for [i]The Ides of March[/i] and[i] Harry Potter[/i] the most. Those are at least the most accessible.
