BobdH -> Armstrong, anyone? (3/1/2013 5:48:38 PM)

A bit of a lazy news article, this.

Since Craig Armstrong was originally (since january 2012, in fact) attached to the project as score composer, what happened here? Either the writer of this article, as do many other journo's then since the story is all over the place, got the term 'score' and 'soundtrack' mixed up and Jay-Z is merely doing original songs for the film, or Craig Armstrong has been placed off the project to be replaced by Mr. Z.

Since Armstrong was credited as the score composer in the trailer that got released right before the film's delay, could it be the delay wasn't just a matter of strong competition in the december period, but is perhaps the whole film under reconstruction as a result of studio notes? To make the whole film more 'modern', to have it better 'speak to its target audience', while Armstrong is too 'classical'?

Let's hope it's the former one, and since Craig Armstrong was also credited as score composer in the recently released second trailer, this does seem to be the most viable explanation. In that case, Empire, please check your information before posting it. Or at least mention Armstrong in the article to show you're not merely copying information without checking.

Either way, there's a lot of post-production trouble on this one, 'cause otherwise it would've been finished already by a mile.

ramseyrocks -> POSTMODERN or CULTURE CLASH (4/1/2013 11:29:44 AM)

I totally get him doing what he's always done and mixing modern and classic elements to create a post modern world.

that 'sword fight' in the start Romeo + Juliet were amazingly conceived.

Gatsbys parties in the roaring 20's were like the raves of their day but from the trailer - the look is 20's abd the sound is 21st century where in Moulin Rogue the look was a mash up of both eras making the music fit better.

i hope Baz has made a brilliant cinematic cocktail of ideas instead of a dirty pint.
