2013: Top Anticipated Scores

2013 is already looking like an interesting year of scores.  Many franchises continue with the same composer, and many new composers getting added in.  A lot of scores that pique my interest!


The Music Behind the Screen's 
Top Anticipated Scores of 2013


1. STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS (Michael Giacchino)
If the Giacchino original is any indication, this might be one of the best scores of the year.
2. THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG (Howard Shore)
Again, with the way the first Hobbit film turns out, this sequel could be another top score by Shore.
3. MAN OF STEEL (Hans Zimmer)
This makes the list just because I'm fascinated to see what Zimmer will come up with.  Will we miss the classic theme? 
4. AFTER EARTH (James Newton Howard)
Typically the scores to a M. Night Shyamalan film are the best parts.  Will the same be true for his first sci-fi thriller?
5. MONSTERS UNIVERSITY (Randy Newman)
Newman's score to Monsters Inc was jazzy, and touching.  Let's see if he brings the same charm to the newest Pixar film.  
6. THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE (James Newton Howard)
After the slightly disappointing score to the first film, I'm intrigued by what Howard will bring to this film.  


OTHER SCORES TO HEAR IN 2013
The Croods (Alan Silvestri)
Frozen (Robert Lopez, Kristen Anderson-Lopez)
A Good Day to Die Hard -(Marco Beltrami)
The Great Gatsby (Craig Armstrong)
