2012: Top Anticipated Scores

2012 is shaping up to be a good year in scores. 
So here is The Music Behind the Screen's Top Anticipated Scores of 2012.
 
 
1. THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY (HOWARD SHORE)
Howard Shore returns to Middle Earth, reuniting with director Peter Jackson.
2. LINCOLN (JOHN WILLIAMS)
The highly anticipated Spielberg biopic has Williams returning to some of his iconic Americana.
3. THE AVENGERS (ALAN SILVESTRI)
Silvestri returns after his triumphant Captain America to add in the whole Marvel bunch.
4. BRAVE (PATRICK DOYLE)
Patrick Doyle hit a new high in 2011, and his own Scottish roots will definitely benefit for this Celtic-inspired Pixar film.
5. JOHN CARTER (MICHAEL GIACCHINO)
After hearing some clips from the Giacchino score, this should be a great one.
6. SKYFALL (THOMAS NEWMAN)
James Bond returns, without David Arnold (who composed the last 5 films), but comes with Thomas Newman.  Given Newman's typecast scores, this should be an interesting score.

  1. Horner is doing Spider-Man? I did not know that. Now I'm really excited for that movie.
