After Cliff Martinez’s last minute exit as the composer of Logan, myself and many fans were concerned that the score for the film wasn’t going to live up to the quality that has been foreshadowed by the film’s incredible trailer. Fortunately, 20th Century Fox found a more than satisfactory replacement with composer Marco Beltrami (The Wolverine, 3:10 to Yuma). As of now, Beltrami has already written the score for the film and recording sessions are underway at the Newman stage on the Fox lot.
James Mangold took to twitter yesterday to share a brief look into the recording for what sounds like an intense scene. The music itself feels like a perfect fit for the western tone evoked in both the trailer as well as all the images released throughout the film’s social media campaign. Check it out below!
