Listen to Over Ten Minutes of Michael Giacchino's Score For JOHN CARTER!

Composer Michael Giacchino, best known for his work on The Incredibles, Lost, Star Trek and more, appeared on "Movies on the Radio" where they exclusively premiered over 10 minutes of music from Andrew Staton's science fiction epic, John Carter.

Yesterday, the Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino was the special guest on the radio show called Movies on the Radio, hosted by David Garland. Giacchino is best known for his work on The Incredibles, Up, LOST, Star Trek and recently he worked on the score for 50/50, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and Super 8. While he was on the radio show, Giacchino and Garland debuted over 10 minutes of music from the Andrew Staton-directed science fiction epic, John Carter.

If you don't want to listen to the whole show, just wait couple minutes (it loads quickly) and fast forward to 43:50 to hear "John Carter's theme." And after that there is also a "Dejah's theme" which starts at 54:50. Check it out below:

I absolutely love what I'm hearing! I mean the mixture of western and sci-fi elements is just brilliant. Definitely can't wait to hear more. What do you think?

Starring Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, James Purefoy, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church and Ciarán Hinds. John Carter is set to hit theatres on March 9, 2012!

He did such a great job on Star Trek and other films. The score for John Carter is definitely in good hands.

Michael Giacchino is the next John Williams.

Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for sharing @WolvieCBM


Yes, I totally agree.

Wow. So far, the music is the first good thing I've experienced from JOHN CARTER. It could very well save the picture!

His action cues are always great, but until recently, I felt his slower, emotional pieces from LOST were unmatched by any of his movie work. SUPER 8 broke through that barrier, IMHO.

Brilliant indeed. It's not hard at all to imagine these to play along with the scenes of the movie...which will as well be brilliant. Can't say anything more.

I find it interesting that, despite being an Oscar winner, MG continues to do music for TV, video games, and even theme park rides. It's clear he wasn't trying to break free of "lesser" media, but rather broaden his canvas.
