Will “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” keep the opening crawl theme and rolling credits theme??? Yes, they probably will…

Some of you may ask, will JJ keep the opening theme and the rolling credits theme as you hear in these videos below? You hear them on every Star Wars movie, even the prequels. So yeah, I think we’ll definitely get the same opening theme song for the famous crawl and the same music for the end credits like always.

I’m sure it’ll be like this for the next trilogy.

I’m not sure if Disney plans on using these two theme songs for spin off movies, though. These theme songs were made for the original series, I would assume.

Yeah, John Williams did the score for the rest of “The Force Awakens” too and I’m sure he’ll kill it like always.

Of course, they will keep these two theme songs. They have to. They always start and end like that. If JJ changed the music for the opening and end credits, that would anger a lot of Star Wars fans so he have to keep them in the film.

Happy birthday, John Williams!!!

Happy birthday to one of the greatest movie score composers of all time! This guy truly is a genius and he can make some of the most memorable movie themes that never leave your head. Here’s 10 of his best composed music, in my opinion.

I’m sure he’s gonna deliver another killer score for the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”!!!

About Star Wars 7,8,9 classical scoring, will John Williams return???

John Williams, the longtime Star Wars composer, did the music for all 6 Star Wars movies. The question, will he return for the next trilogy? I can see John returning for Star Wars 7, most definitely, but if he can stay alive when 8 and 9 comes around, that maybe kind of tough ’cause he might be dead by then. The guy is about 80 years old now. I’m not saying he’s gonna die, but what if he doesn’t make it when 8 and 9 comes around, ya know? That’s what I’m saying.

Even if they plan on not using John Williams and replacing a new composer, they still need to use the original opening “Star Wars” theme for the opening crawl in the beginning. That can’t be replaced.

Some people can and can’t see John Williams coming back. It’s a mixed feeling on him too. He has always been important for the Star Wars legacy. So yeah, I can see a definite %100 chance of John Williams returning. I can’t see him turning it down. Hopefully, he’ll live long enough to compose the next trilogy. It’s amazing that he’s still composing movies at this age, though. I’m pretty sure Disney will offer him a huge deal that he can’t refuse.

Cool Video: Watch a fan made version of “Man of Steel” trailer with the John Williams music!

So people online debated on whether or not the John Williams music would work for “Man of Steel”, because of a new era and all. Well, in my opinion, I think this fan made video of the trailer, is pretty much proof that the JW’s score would work. It was beautiful and the JW’s score with the “Man of Steel” trailer, gave me even more goosebumps! The music for the original trailer was the main theme from “Lord of the Rings”. The reason Warner Bros. have been using music from other movies for the trailers is because Hans Zimmer didn’t compose music for “Man of Steel”, yet.

Warner Bros. should have used this music in the video for the teaser instead. They could have if they wanted but I guess they really are ditching John Williams for good which is sad. I’m not sure why Zack doesn’t want to use this music, when Star Trek and James Bond have used the same music for years.

I believe they decided on Lord of the Rings, as a way to piss off the makers of “The Hobbit” movie and compete with them.

Enjoy the John Williams version. I think it works beautifully and almost brought tears to my eyes. Felt like a real Superman movie with the John Williams music. It’s not the main theme, but the music came from the Krypton scene in the beginning of “Superman: The Movie”. Yep, I definitely like the fan made John Williams trailer, better than the voice over versions.

Report: Hans Zimmer, officially signed to score, “Man of Steel”, still doesn’t rule out the iconic John Williams theme though…

Well, Warner Bros. has finally announced the score composer for the upcoming new, Superman movie, “Man of Steel”. It’s no surprise that they were going to get Hans Zimmer, and most everyone predicted they were gonna get him anyway. Hans Zimmer scored for all three “Batman” films and, “Inception”, all Christopher Nolan directed flicks.

One thing to keep in mind though, this still doesn’t rule out the John Williams theme song. They’re still being tight-lipped on whether or not Warner Bros. is planning to use the iconic Superman original theme. Questions you have to ask. Will they ditch the original theme for good and create something new? Will Zimmer still use bits and pieces of the original theme and create a new version? Will they still use John Williams original track for the opening credits, and Zimmer will score the rest of the film?

Keep in mind guys, that the earlier Superman movies had different score composers. John Williams only scored the first Superman movie, “Superman: The Movie”. All the other Superman movies still used the original score, but they had different versions and styles of the theme. Is Hans Zimmer planning to do the same? I’m sure we’ll hear from him soon about the John Williams theme.

I still say that the original theme should be used for the movie. Why? Because there can’t be a Superman movie without it. James Bond has used it’s same theme song for years but they had different versions of the theme for every film. “Star Trek” used the same theme for every movie and TV episode, but used different versions and styles.

If Hans Zimmer snubs the John Williams theme completely, then people won’t get used to the Superman character. It may not sell as well in the box office. I’m sure, “Man of Steel”, will do well in the box office, but without the JW’s score, the Superman franchise may lose some of it’s fanbase. I still think they should use the score in some way. If Zimmer, decided to do something completely different, he’s never going to be able to top it and he will NEVER make it better than the original theme. Superman is pretty well known to have the JW’s theme ’cause the track is who Superman is.

There are still a lot of fans with mixed opinions on the theme song for, “Man of Steel”. Some do want the original theme and some want something totally new. I still support this theme song in the video below and can’t see a Superman movie without it.

See the report, here.

Look like Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” is going to open with the John Williams theme after all?

Check it out, and tell me what you see…

the Man of Steel, IMDB lists John Williams as Original Score, but they still list Tyler Bates in the music department. This doesn’t mean it’s confirmed ’cause IMDB is not a reliable site.

I’ll believe it when I hear a confirmation from Zack Snyder, Warner Bros. or Christopher Nolan. I’m sure Zack is going to get asked about the Superman theme when he starts doing interviews again. We’ll wait and see.

Report: Is Tyler Bates the new composer for Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”???

Rumors are hitting the web this week that film composer, Tyler Bates, could be the new composer for Zack Snyder’s, “Man of Steel”. The reason this rumor started because he was listed in IMDB, in the credits as composer. So far, no official press release about it from Warner Bros.

It could be true because Tyler already worked with Zack for “300”, “Watchmen” and “Suckerpunch”.

This is starting to worry Superman fans, ’cause the John Williams main theme could be ignored. I don’t think so. In every Superman movie, there is the John Williams score just different versions of it. J.W.’s didn’t score every Superman flick, only the first one.

If Tyler is indeed the composer for, “Man of Steel”, I think it’s still a possibility they will still use the J.W.’s score, but a different take on it. They shouldn’t really ignore the theme completely and they probably won’t. Hope they won’t ignore it anyway.
