    Sounds interesting. Anyone read the book?

    Yes, it was incredibly creepy and uncomfortable for me, and I loved it.

    They finished Bird Box 2 hours before hitting the stage in Atlanta. Thought that was pretty crazy how they do all this stuff on the road.

    I had no idea that they're releasing Bird Box in theaters for an Oscar push. That should be interesting. Can't wait to hear the score.

    I've been looking everywhere for info on this OST with no luck. I hope it's not a digital only release. Something about not having a physical copy (either vinyl, cd, etc) makes it seem like i am missing something from the collection.

    Okay, because I actually want to see this movie and not just skim through it for music, I went to the end credits to check things out. At first, there's a piece that feels very Patriots' Day, nothing mindblowing for TR/AR, but over the majority of the end credits is what I've been waiting for since Reznor announced his would start scoring films...a creepy and intense piece of music MADE for a horror movie. There's a distorted violin loop and a lot of those wonky bell noises from Patriots' Day...I won't keep spoiling.

    Really looking forward to sitting down with the film.

    Attached is a screenshot from the credits.

    Maybe. Fuck Instagram.

    Seems like it's a movie that keeps the score in the background. Couldn't really hear much to be honest. Disappointing.

    This definitely seems like another digital EP release. I can't imagine that there's a lot of music for it.

    Guess we'll see on Friday.

    These tracks were in the end credits of the movie. I wonder if they just ripped it from there?

    It’s up on US Netflix. The score is very subtle. Fits the movie well. Need repeat viewings/listenings, but I’m digging it so far.

    Pretty excited to check this out. The five minute preview sold me pretty hard on it. I'm really surprised though that the soundtrack wasn't released today.

    Between this and the Jonah Hill "score", it seems like Trent is just saying yes to every film score that comes his way. I miss the grand rollouts for these big scores like Social Network and Dragon Tattoo....These last 2 have been very forgettable....The Jonah Hill one was a 4 song 12 minute digital download throwaway and this is more of the same

    They are working more like standard film composers, not elite ones (which they are)...They are at a level where they do not need to compose films or tv shows to pay the bills. They can be selective and choose what they want, so saying yes to Jonah Hill skateboard movies to dump out 4 songs that he can write in his sleep that he composed backstage in the most half baked way possible, or to say yes to some netflix show where 99% of the audience watching it wont give two fucks who the score came from doesnt seem prudent at this juncture of their careers. Carpenter and Morricone and Hans Zimmer do not say yes to everything that they get offered. Next we are going to hear how TR and Atticus are going to score a "very special episode" of Fuller House

    Orrrrrr.... hear me out...

    They just enjoy making music, and enjoy the process of scoring films. They also, if you can believe it, might also be collaborating with friends or, in Jonah Hill's case, fans, as a courtesy, or just entirely for fun.

    I know it's hard to grasp it, but not every musician makes career choices based on the individual needs of every fan.

    If you think a 4 song 12 minute digital download "score" is equal to the 2-3 hour scores of Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl, and that he put as much effort into these little 3 or 4 song scores as he did with the others...So be it lol....Thats like saying Bad Witch in all its 25 minute entirety is as big of a magnum opus as the 3 hours of The Fragile.....My point is dumping out these little 3 or 4 song quick toss-off scores seems like throwaways compared to the scores of Social Nework/Dragon/Gone Girl etc

    They've always been at that level.

    Carpenter and Morricone and Hans Zimmer do not say yes to everything that they get offered.
    Carpenter would totally say yes to anything that was offered to him if the money was right. That's all he cares about. Morricone may not, but if you think Hans Zimmer is frothing at the mouth to score films like The Boss Baby, you're dead fucking wrong.

    Also, Trent has specifically stated that they've been offered films and they've passed on them because they didn't feel like they were a good fit for them. Just because a film may not be your cup of tea or have loads of music attached to it doesn't mean that they're phoning it in.

    Oh yeah, and one more thing: the amount of music that's in a film is not up to the composer(s). It's up to the filmmakers. If a director wants a minimalist score, then that's what they'll ask for. It's not as if a director asks for a bombastic score and Trent & Atticus say "nah, we're just going to give you this because that's all we feel like doing". They're working in service to whatever the filmmakers' vision is.

    LOL. I get what you're saying but Trent IS picking and choosing. I think he's doing what he finds interesting as opposed to what will make him seem like an elite composer or whatever you mean. I do think he should be even more selective and do movies in which the music plays a larger role. These last 2 movies haven't really been about the score at all and that's disappointing. I believe there was a rumor a while back that had them scoring a musical. Now that's something I think he should do; it would be about the music and it would be an interesting challenge for him I'm sure.

    It's only disappointing if you are someone who thinks the score should always be prominent just because it's Trent & Atticus. Trent has mentioned in a couple interviews that he appreciates it when a score doesn't overpower a movie but sits comfortably in it and supports the visual and storytelling elements (that's not a direct quote, by the way), and I feel Trent & Atticus have managed to do that very well with the projects they've worked on, especially in the last few years.

    LMFAO new music Friday and still no Bird Box score release of any kind. I cannot, for the life of me, understand writing an album's worth of score music for a relatively-hyped up film and then not releasing it in any way, shape or form when the movie comes out. We're looking at what's shaping up to be the great Tapeworm of TR/AR score music, I guess..

    At least Patriot's Day had a digital release before Lakeshore completely dropped the ball on a physical release of any kind. Two years later and that score is clearly never seeing a physical release, despite the ominous "coming soon" label, smh..

    The Jonah Hill movie had absolutely no budget and he begged Trent to give them whatever he could. So they came up with a small amount of compositions to use in the tiny little film that it was. Perfectly fine with that, especially b/c the output was very good imo.
