Anyway, Neil's been writing great stuff for quite a long time.

Fans can get their first glimpse of footage from “Star Trek Into Darkness” before select screenings of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” Paramount announced Wednesday. The first nine minutes of the highly anticipated sequel to J.J. Abrams’ 2009 “Star Trek” film will be previewed before IMAX 3D screenings in roughly 500 theaters beginning Dec. 14.
I've never done a mainstream Hollywood movie in IMAX, the only times I did IMAX were about a decade ago when all they showed were documentaries in museums, but Trek and Hobbit together might just be enough to get me to fork out the money.

But he's always been more songwriter than vocalist. It's a bit weird to hire him for his voice.

Hey, I knew that!

I've read about it in an ancient history book.

It should be noted that the Empire link contains only the standard or regular two disc release of the score, not the special edition which contains the bonus tracks or "Blunt the Knives".

It seems to have been removed now. I didn't get around to listening to it yet.

Um, no, he's a songwriter, singer, and plays multiple instruments. He's a musician, and a damn talented one. He didn't just pop over to a studio and lay down vocals on someone else's music.

No need to be so defensive. I meant that he is reknowned for his songwriting abilites rather than for his vocal range, and it's absolutely true.

Empire has the entire score streaming here...

http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=35757
They seem to have pulled the actual link to the score, or something has tripped up my browser. The graphic is still in place as are the links to purchase said score. Yet the link to play the score is not there


ETA: Oops.... seems mooch already noted that
