    Like it wasn’t listed on my site a while ago 😛

  3. Steve says:

    🙁 Disappointing! Was really looking forward to Martinez on this!!

    Beltrami is ok, but nothing special.

    This is Rogue One all over again…

    • Benjamin says:

      Beltrami is one of the best composers today and write a very cool score for the last Wolverine-movie. So I’m looking forward to this music. 🙂

      • Roger says:

        you mean most boring? Marco sucks

        • Benjamin says:

          If you don’t like his music thats absolutly okay, but have a little more respect about the composers. And sorry.. boring? For me Marco Beltrami wrote the best score in 2016 (Gods of Egypt). But this is my opinion. So… Sorry that I have an another opinion than you.

          • Roger says:

            i am sorry…that you have that opinion.

          • Benjamin says:

            Everbody has another opinion and that’s good. But you will just bash and have no respekt for the opinion from other people. Your opinion isn’t the one and only. Think about that.

          • BB says:

            Do not waste your time arguing with this one, Ben. For him only Hans Zimmer who lends … He is a losing fanboy.

          • Benjamin says:

            Thanks BB! No more questions.. Everything is clear now.

  4. BB says:

    Great! It should not even have been discarded!

  5. Yahzee says:

    …Martinez is great and all, but I don’t why they didn’t go with Beltrami from the start. 3:10 to Yuma and The Wolverine are both awesome

    Ben-Hur, Gods of Egypt, No Escape, Hitman – Agent 47, Fantastic Four, The Seventh Son, The November Man, The Giver… The guy has been scoring only box office bombs for the last 3 years. If Logan flops, it will be the proof that someone cursed him.

    • Ben says:

      My god you’re right. Uuughh I hope Logan will crush it, honestly Fox needs to understand what they should and shouldn’t do with their movies.
      Well, hoping the movie’s actually good of course, even though so far it seems to be amazing.

    • Tor says:

      Cursed is having talent by the bucketful and no films on which to utilize it (cf. David Newman).

      This is just a freak of coincidence.

    • Zachary Newton says:

      He did score Snowpiercer, which is a serviceable score FWIW.

      • Carlos says:

        His latest box office successes, World War Z and The Wolverine, were almost four years ago.

        But, leaving the jokes aside, the truth is that I don’t know why a talented composer like him is doing a lot of B movies that clearly are below him. Of course, he has no fault if Fantastic 4 or Gods of Egypt turned up to be really bad movies, but I’m not sure what attracted him to Hitman or The November Man.

        Anyway, let’s hope that Logan will be a success.

    I am waiting so badly for its soundtrack. Sad that Hugh is hanging those claws.
