No Terminator music in Salvation?
The composer of the score for Terminator Salvation has been announced, it's Danny Elfman. A name we all probably know from the large list of films he's worked on.
I suspect he may have never watched a Terminator film though. Seems it's not a given, that the infamous Terminator music will be used.
McG's Terminator Salvation is one of the most anticipated releases of this year. Another film in the Terminator franchise, a director some people were not quite sure of, and a slightly dodgy third film to recover from. Overall though it's looking positive, going by the footage we have seen.
Danny Elfman has recently been given the job of composing the score. Normally I wouldn't bat an eye lid, but the well known Terminator music is not a cert for inclusion. He spoke to MTV:
I think if it comes up and it seems appropriate, we will [use it]. And if it doesn’t, we [won't]. I never really know what to expect when I begin other than just kind of get into it and have fun. Especially a movie like “T4” – just have fun. So that’s what I intend to do.
Okay, I'm going to put my geek hat on for a minute. I don't get it. One of the most recognisable film themes going, and they might use it. It's not difficult is it. You put it at the start, or the end, or both. It's Terminator, just put it in. Sounds like a bit of artistic posturing to me.
Anyone else bothered about it? Or am I just a sad geek?
