5 Comments on Atli Örvarsson to score THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES

    I wonder if he’s going to do the theme’s of the characters, such as Simon, Clary, and Jace.

  3. So, are they done with the re-shooting and finishing editing/started scoring? A movie’s music is like its heartbeat and I do believe that if a movie’s soundtrack/score encapsulates the emotions right, there’s all the more reason towards its success.
    I’m already loving everything about CoB so far, so I hope they’ll make a killer score and choose the right songs for the soundtrack to top it all.

    nice! i liked his score for hansel and gretel! but he’s got some work ahead of him though! the movie’s out in august!

  5. I was putting my hopes up for the previous composer since he’s got an academy award for his music in winter’s bone. Though this one also composed Iron man’s and Man of steel’s soundtracks. We could hope for some intense shit in this movie.
