Michael Giacchino announced that he’ll return to score STAR TREK BEYOND.

On Saturday, Giacchino tweeted: “So thrilled to be working with Justin Lin and the rest of the Enterprise crew on Star Trek Beyond! Let’s boldly go!”.

Giacchino, who has scored several major blockbusters, including: Mission: Impossible III, The Incredibles, Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Jurassic World along with both 2009’s STAR TREK and 2013’s STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. Until recently, he hadn’t been approached to score the next installment of the rebooted Star Trek franchise.

Giacchino was nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on Star Trek (2009).

STAR TREK BEYOND, directed by Justin Lin and starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Sofia Boutella and Idris Elba will hit theaters on July 8, 2016. The film will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the franchise.

    So he’s just going to use the average music from the 1st one again like he did the 2nd?

      Although not as spectacular as the music produced for most of the original ten movies, I do find Giacchino’s work to be well above average when compared to the majority of generic scores often heard in modern tentpoles.

      There’s at least some return to bold, thematic cues instead of tedious, ultra-bland progressions of chords and ubiquitous percussive beats.

      As for recycling, the very best in the industry do it. James Horner’s Search For Spock score is largely a reworked and expanded version of The Wrath Of Khan, and is none the worse for it IMHO.

      Besides, familiarity in the music can often bring a sense of cohesiveness and continuity to a series of films – the original Star Wars movies spring to mind.
