    I always called Michael Giacchino the next John Williams, and this brings him a step closer!

    Is Williams officially retired?

    • Tarek

      John Williams retired ? No! This guy is a genius. He will continue composing till the last second of his life.

      I hope that he will compose the reboot of Dardevil, with a great Director and a great casting, to make justice to this wonderful character, botched by Mark Steven Johnson & Ben Affleck

      I hate you Ben Affleck.

        Just found out he’s scoring Spielberg’s “War Horse”. Words cannot express how happy that makes me.

      • Tarek

        so am I.

        He composed also Tintin score.
        We can’t have enough cowbell when it comes to John Williams music.

    hold your horses, he aint there yet. While he is very good sometimes he lacks thematic development. Star Trek was pretty good and I was expecting a lot from Super 8, but I walked out not even knowing what the main theme was..can you hum it back? Can’t say that about any of Williams work..he never failed to make a good theme memorable.

    COME ON!

    what a great news. I love Giacchino’s style. So close to the Maestro John Williams. I hope that he will compose also the Star Wars live action tv series.
