    Is that true ?
    Ready player One credits Silvestri. I’m schoked.
    Who was behind the Post Papers thingy ? Have to check.
    My world is falling apart. Nothing is tangible, set in stone, reliable anymore.
    SAD !

    "The Post" is Williams, which was in post-production at the same time as "Ready Player One", so he couldn't score both.

    And besides the above, honestly, the man is 86, he deserves to gradually or completely retire if he wants to. He earned that. ;)

    Or Spielberg should retire too ?
    It’s only his second film without Williams, right?

    Spielberg should retire because his composer couldn't meet his schedule? Or because "his" composer is getting old? Really? I am sure other composers could (as they have done before, including "Bridge of Spies" lately) score Spielberg's movies after Williams has retired/is no more.

    Whether Spielberg should retire based on the drivel projects he sometimes chooses to engage in these days -- like "Ready Player One" -- is another matter. The trailer at least looks like utter crap and a waste of his talent.

    Williams is so great, and I think his accomplishments will live forever. But I'd love to see Morricone have a shot.

    It's his third without Williams.

    1985 - The Color Purple - Quincy Jones
    2015 - Bridge of Spies - Thomas Newman
    2018 - Ready Player One - Alan Silvestri

    Let's not forget the amazing Poltergeist (Goldsmith).

    Simon, I was just kidding.
    Spielberg might be my favorite director - though I’ ve missed most of his last output. But at a time I had some infidelities with him, Jurassic Park, Shindler, Ryan and War of the Worlds swept away my then new fav.
