Jurassic World / Michael Giacchino

After composing the scores for J.J. Abrams' films Star Trek, Mission: Impossible III and Super 8, the talented Michael Giacchino is bringing his musical genius to another summer blockbuster. THR has word that Giacchino is set to compose the score for Jurassic World, the next chapter in Universal's successful Jurassic Park franchise. Focusing on a fully functional theme park back on the original island of Isla Nublar, the film acts as a pseudo reboot with a whole new cast of characters who end up in trouble when the dinosaurs run wild. We don't know much about the sequel, but Giacchino's talents are more than welcome.

Movie fans will hear plenty of Giacchino's work this summer as he scores Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Jupiter Ascending. More recently, Giacchino teamed up with director Brad Bird to score Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, following his work as composer for the filmmaker's Pixar films Ratatouille and The Incredibles. In an interesting coincidence, Giacchino's first job as composer was writing the score for the video based on the Jurassic Park sequel The Lost World, which was one of the earliest console games to feature an orchestral score. It's not clear if he'll use any of John Williams' iconic original themes or cues, but we can't wait to hear what he does for director Colin Trevorrow.

At least if the movie sucks, the score will be great.

Cool, I like him. Though I think his main Star Trek theme isn't that great, the rest of the music from them is quite good.
