Sound Track

The Artemis Fowl Movie is coming... On the 26th July 2013, Disney, in association with Harvey Weinstein, announced that a movie covering the events of the first two books was finally in the works!

So a composer for action movies might fit Artemis Fowl better...


Danny Elfman would probably be the perfect composer. The sound track to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sounded Artemis Fowlish to me. It was orchastra and techno but together brilliantly.

The thing with Danny Elfman is that his tracks tend to be for more musical shows. I don't see Artemis Fowl actually SINGING a number, nor any of the other characters.

He composed for Men in Black, right?

Hmm... checking Wikipedia... also did Spider-Man 1 and 2, and Hulk.

Haven't watched any of those movies for ages, but I think the genre is close enough...

I still say with Artemis's whole culture-ific thing, actual classical (versus neo-classical) composers would be better. No rap. Just rock and classical Very Happy and maybe rockin' classical.

I agree with you no
No rap. Just rock and classical and maybe rockin' classical.

Maybe they could revise some classicle music and make it more AF like. If you know what I mean.

No one said John Williams and he's a very famous composer so I thought I would. He did the sound tracks for Harry Potter, Star Wars, Jaws, Superman, Jurassic Park, ET (love those songs), and I am sure many more. It's a nice blend. I am sure he could do Artemis Fowl easily, but he'd probably (I have no clue how long this stuff would take) be busy with Harry Potter.

P.S. Oh wait... yes, someone did mention him. Shucks. But when I read this before, no one had yet.

The Spider Man theme is quite good for Artemis Fowl, or perhaps the DaVinciCode theme, both are good.

Lux Aeterna would be a very good track for any of the movies.

Hmmm... I think that classical an rock would be pretty cool actually. a fair mix of each should do the job.

hmm. Hans Zimmer has pulled off the music for quite a few movies, eg Prince of Egypt (OMGOMGOMG AAAH XD) So IMO he's a pretty good composer. on the other hand, he is more generally associated with uh.. cartoons like Disney and Dreamworks. (well, i've only heard of him there.) but perhaps for really dramatic scenes, i think he could do it pretty well. (eg blue rinse)

Do you think the song "Artemis" by Michael Londra should be included in the movie? (maybe as bg music for rolling credits or something...)
