While hard at work finishing up Logan before the film’s world premiere later this month, director James Mangold shared a clip of the studio orchestra performing parts of Marco Beltrami’s original score.
Things seem to get pretty intense for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, as the clip highlights a syncopated rhythm layered with dissonant chords. Mangold posted the clip from “the Newman Stage” online via Twitter.
Beltrami previously composed music for a number of comic book-based films, like Mangold’s The Wolverine, Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, Jimmy Hayward’s Jonah Hex, Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer, and Guillermo del Toro’s Blade II. He’s earned two Oscar nominations over the course of his career for his work on The Hurt Locker and 3:10 to Yuma.
Listen to his latest effort below.
Jackman recently released a new plot description for Logan, which takes place in a near future when “a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X [Patrick Stewart] in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”
