Michael Giacchino to compose music for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes


Michael Giacchino has worn many hats as a composer. He’s laid down some amazing tunes for some equally amazing
films like The Incredibles, Star Trek, Super 8, but this gig will reunite him with Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves who directed Let Me In, a film that Michael composed. This this kind of catalog, there’s no doubt that Michael is the man for the job. This could even be a precursor to his involvement with the Star Wars franchise should the success of Dawn be something Biblical. The announcement was made on his twitter yesterday and since then fans of his haven’t been able to stop talking about it. I can’t say I loved or hated the previous composer, Patrick Doyle’s, work on ROTPOTA, but hiring Michael does seem to make more sense. Hey it’s a J.J. world.

It’s several months before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes arrives in theaters, but I think this news as was the recent announcement of the cast and plot of the new film, has rounded out the last bit of details we, as in those who are anticipating this film, have been waiting for. Perhaps some of you lucky folks will get a glimpse or at least a tease of the trailer at this years San Diego Comic Con. Cross your fingers dammit!!

The film stars Andy Serkis, Jason ClarkeKeri Russell, Gary Oldman, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Toby Kebbell, Enrique Murciano, and Judy GreerDawn of the Planet of the Apes opens on May 23, 2014.
