When I think about my favorite film composers of all-time my mind instantly gravitates to: John Williams (Star Wars, Indiana Jones), Danny Elfman (Anything Tim Burton), and Michael Giacchino. While the former hasn’t been around as long as the other guys, what he’s done in the last 10 years has been nothing short of amazing. His work for Pixar is pure brilliance with the soundtracks for The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and UP. He also did everything with J. J. Abrams including Lost, Star Trek, and even Alias. Finally, it’s been announced that his next big movie will be Jurassic World.
Giacchino will be joining the Colin Trevorrow-directed film as the lead composer for the soundtrack, which can only make me more excited. I love the work that John Williams did with the original film, and I’m sure that the themes will carry on to this new movie. I’m very excited to see Giacchino’s unique take on the return of Isla Nubar and it’s prehistoric inhabitants.
Jurassic World has a June 12th, 2015 release date. Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall will produce the film that’s written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). The film stars: Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, Andy Buckley, Judy Greer, BD Wong and Jake Johnson.
