2020: April 05: AQP2 new release date announced
While there is still a lot of time left and anything can change in the meantime, Paramount Pictures has announced new release date for A QUIET PLACE: PART II, which is currently set for release on September 4th.

2020: March 20: MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM score released
MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM was just released digitally by Hollywood Records and is available to purchase from Amazon or iTunes. The album includes roughly 40 minutes of original score composed by Brandon Roberts and featuring vocal solos performed by Úyanga Bold (see also Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark). Here is a little quote from the soloist about the working process: "A joy working with series composer Brandon Roberts, creator Eliot Laurence and sound team to create the vocal sonic universe for Motherland. (The protagonists use vocal spells and songs to affect the world around them!) We recorded at Capital Records and Marco Beltrami's studio the vocal spell effects and special vocal music for the show (for example, there is a scene where my layered vocals are the voices of the characters joining together to call down rain while the sun is shining). Overall, a thoughtful creative team process defining how the spells and songs sound and work.
The brilliant Brandon wrote beautifully captivating music for the series, of course. It was a pleasure to sing (and throat sing, and sing like a wolf, ululate, and more) for him, including for his gorgeous opening main theme. We used and layered different voice colors to simulate various characters and vocal spells throughout the series. (Did I mention he is brilliant?)."

While there are still no released dates known for several upcoming projects, MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM TV series will finally premiere tomorrow on Free Form TV. The series is scored by Brandon Roberts and you can already listen to a few samples on his official website and Kraft/Engel Management profile page, as well as check the latest trailer below.

2019: December 29: Marco Beltrami encounters MONSTER PROBLEMS
Upcoming post-apocalyptic comedy, MONSTER PROBLEMS, will feature original music by Marco Beltrami. The project, which is directed by Michael Matthews (Five Fingers for Marseilles) and based on the screenplay by Matthew Robinson (The Invention of Lying), follows a young hero (Dylan O'Brien) who learns how to survive a monster apocalypse with the help of an expert hunter (Michael Rooker) while trying to find his long lost former girlfriend (Jessica Henwick). Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel) produces the movie with Dan Cohen. MONSTER PROBLEMS is currently in post-production and will be released by Paramount Pictures and Entertainment One on April 17th.

2019: December 24: Marco Beltrami returns to A QUIET PLACE
Marco Beltrami has been currently working on the score for upcoming sequel A QUIET PLACE PART II. The film is again directed by John Krasinski, who also wrote the screenplay. All surviving cast members from the first movie will return and the movie will also star Cillian Murphy, Djimon Hounsou, Wayne Duvall and Lauren-Ashley Cristiano among others. Following the events at home, the Abbott family now face the terrors of the outside world. Forced to venture into the unknown, they realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path. Paramount Pictures will release A QUIET PLACE: PART II on March 20th, 2020.

2019: December 17: Official Aftermovie 19th WSA (including BEN HUR)
While promoting its 20th anniversary next year (tickets for the closing night concert are already on sale), WSA has also released brief video looking back on this year's edition. Included are a few comments from Dirk Brossé as well as award winners John Powell, Hildur Gudnadóttir, Michael Abels and more. And also the main guest Marco Beltrami. The most important aspect of the video is the actual performance of previously never heard piece from BEN HUR (orchestrated by Mikael Carlsson), which has never been recorded or even performed until the event. Sadly the piece is also missing from the CD, so this is the only opportunity to hear at least a few fragments from this fantastic world premiere, which starts at 0:41 and continues until the end of the video.
