New Skyfall videoblog highlights the score by Thomas Newman

Oct. 17, 2012by:

I must confess that I am a huge fan of composer Thomas Newman's work.  From AMERICAN BEAUTY to ROAD TO PERDITION to THE GREEN MILE and beyond, the man is a lyrical genius.  He's never been much of an action movie composer, but that didn't stop me from getting jazzed to find out he was composing the score to James Bond's latest adventure, SKYFALL.  Being a Sam Mendes mainstay, I'm happy to see the director-composer continue their collaborative relationship.

In this latest production videoblog from 007's new film, we see Thomas Newman composing the classic Bond riff with some help from at least one band member that's been around since the very first Bond film, DR. NO.

Have a listen:

The sountrack for the film will be released on November 6, 2012 (and can be preordered here), but while you wait, click here to listen to seven minutes of the score by Newman. 

SKYFALL, the 23rd entry in the James Bond franchise, will open in IMAX theaters on November 8, 2012 and go wide on November 9, 2012. 

Extra Tidbit: Are you a fan of Newman's work? His earlier work for The Man With One Red Shoe starring Tom Hanks and Real Genius starring Val Kilmer are two of my childhood faves that have never seen release. What's a fan got to do?

I wouldn't mind Thomas Newman. His work in Road to Perdition and Shawshank Redemption is enough to convince me he is up to the task. Whatever the case, it's gotta be better than Eric Serra's Goldeneye score. Boy has that aged horribly.

No David Arnold!?!?!

Don't get me wrong, I really like Thomas Newman, but can he carry the John Barry notes that David Arnold so masterfully executed in "Casino Royale"? We'll see. I'm not saying he isn't capable of it, but when I think Thomas Newman I don't hear the James Bond theme. Right now, I was looking forward to another David Arnold James Bond piece. Prove me wrong, please do Mr. Newman.
