2008 Music Preview - Quarter 1
A Look Ahead to this Year's Soundtracks

By Christopher Coleman

Another year of music lay at our doorsteps.  What will 2008 hold for our musical palettes?  There are plenty of big-budget films on tap for 08 that should make room for some big, bold scores.  Indiana Jones is back.  Superheroes are on the increase:  IRON MAN, THE DARK KNIGHT, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, HANCOCK, and HELLBOY 2.  Children's books turned into fantasy films are cutting in line:  THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES, NIM'S ISLAND and THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASIAN might only be the tip of the iceberg.

There are always a number of surprises from the host of dramatic films that fill the Fall.  Indie films and foreign films also deliver a handful of good scores each year.  Which ones will do it in 2008?  Here, we'll give you our perspective on which upcoming 2008 films might provide the best scores...and which ones may not.  In addition, we've added a video game category.  As 2007 showed, the video game music industry has come to rival that of film scores, so we'll try to give you a glimpse at which game scores might be ones to clamour for.

While the award-season is in full gear, the actual movie going experience generally goes for a dive in the dumper.  But for 2008? Not so fast.  There just might be a couple movies that give, at least our ears, something to look forward to.

Let's begin . . .
