Whoa. Now this has really come out of nowhere. Normally at Electroshadow, we’re used to receiving trailers and preview pics. But seldom do we get previews for an upcoming film’s score. And not just that, the trailer’s score. Yes, that’s right. Twentieth Century Fox today premiered the music from the impending (and hotly anticipated) trailer for “Prometheus”, director Ridley Scott’s return to the world of “Alien”. The final score for the actual film may very well change, but this is definitely a good indication of what kind of aural experience we’re in for. I like the “screeching” cues. Sci-fi geeks will recognise it as a homage to the original’s 1978 teaser trailer music. Mysteriously, the composer for “Prometheus” has not yet been revealed, but from the sound of it, Scott could be using Hans Zimmer. It does have elements familiar to his “Inception” score. Or it could be some soundalike guy like Brian Tyler. Whatever the case, this score rocks. It’s dark, atmospehric and has a grand feel to it. Which should suit the tone of the film, what with its promised genre-redefining ideas. Electroshadow has received some massive spoilery story details, which won’t be revealed on this site since it’s not ethical. But let’s just say your minds will be blown.
“Prometheus” stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Logan Marshall-Green, and Patrick Wilson. The sci-fi horror prequel premieres 8th June 2012.
