Michael Giacchino to score Star Trek XI

Paramount Pictures has confirmed that Michael Giacchino, noted for his scores for The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible III, and the forthcoming animated comedy, Ratatouille, is indeed attached to the new Star Trek movie. In fact, it was only officially confirmed a couple of weeks ago that director J.J. Abrams has signed on to direct the film. For anyone who knows Giacchino’s work, the Star Trek assignment doesn’t come as a big surprise since he scored Abrams’ previous projects, Mission: Impossible III, Lost and Alias.

hahahahahahah ... bdd, thats funny! well there isnt much to post on this movie yet because they are working SLOWLY, but i guess surely to deliver me some Trekie goodness! i am not surprised by Giacchino's attachment. As the above article suggests, he works with Abrams ... A LOT.

just because you don't care, doesn't mean others don't. also i'm pretty sure you meant "pointless" posts--when whining it helps to spell correctly. cinescape loads up plenty of news. it's a f'ing holiday, butthead. relax. oh, and i got a slogan for ya, "bdd is an ass."

This is really a stupid post. The score? This movie better be good. When are they going to annouce the cast? I mean come on already. Who gives a rats ass about a score. Who the Hell is going to play captain james kirk?

Well Kang, I for one DO care about a movie's score. This article comes as no surprise to me just as it states that Abrams and Giacchino have a long-term professional relationship, so it makes total sense that Giacchino will score Star Trek. I also hope that large plot details will be vague at best till this time next year when we should have a teaser for the movie because I want to sit in a dark theater Christmas night 2008 with few spoilers on plot. Now I do agree that I anxiously await for casting info, and I would like to see Josh Lucas at least considered for Kirk. He's not as well known as Matt Damon but I can picture him taking on the role well.

This is ridiculous on the part of the studio!!! I mean, shouldn't you guys shoot the movie first, before announcing who's doing the movie score??? Who cares, at least, until after you've got a workable movie in the can already???!!! And if you want to bring me back to the theatre, you had better shoot this puppy in 3-D, or else, I couldn't careless...after all, Star Trek is dead!!!

Isn't it, a little early to announce who's composing the music? Will the next post, be about.... what type material they will be using for costumes will it be eco friendly.?

Wow ewilliams, I'm an ass? Maybe you should reread your post? It's clear that you are the ass, and I think others here agree with me about that. So have a nice day fucking dumbass.

Anyone who knows anything about movies knows that the score is a HUGE deal. Having Hans Zimmer doing Star Trek is like having Aerosmith do ballet. The choice to use Giacchino is really interesting. I now realize just how far the reimaging of this project is going to be... It's TOTAL!!! One thing I read in the comments that I agree with... This had better be AWESOME or I'll boycott this J.J. guy for life.
