It depends on what you mean by leaked [In reply to] Can't Post

If you mean an illegal, bootleg copy making it out before the movie (or any official release of music), I haven't heard of any such thing happening. I couldn't support any illicit leaking of The Hobbit score in any manner. I've been one of the voices arguing against similar situations on other forums (when early copies of Complete Recordings were being passed around illegally in open discussion) and Doug's web handlers knock any such discussion of illegal files sharing off his blog fast enough to make your head spin. I suspect similar reaction could be anticipated on these forums, as well.

If you mean was there some official outlet for hearing the music before the movies were released... then Silverlode's right. None of the trailers used Shore's score music. The only thing I could think of that might qualify would be Cannes 2001. The FOTR preview at Cannes used Shore's score so people who saw the Cannes footage would have heard the music.


You can read Calisuri's report here
. Find more reports here.

The standard, jewel-case OST was released on November 20, 2001, which is of course, about a month before the film came out. That is about standard for many soundtracks releases.


I did not buy the FOTR soundtrack till sometime in January of 2002. So all that I report happening prior to that is research done after the fact. It's possible Kristin has some info I'm not aware of.

in regards to another comment in this subthread:
I actually find I like getting the soundtrack in advance of the movie. The music, once it gets ingrained in my brain, works more effectively in supporting the movie so I respond more deeply to the movie the first time through. I don't feel it spoils anything for me. I have yet to figure out much from the music in regards to the action on screen. But maybe that's due to a lack of imagination on my part.
