Michael Giacchino will return to score Star Trek 2

The sci-fi sequel is starting to come together now

Thanks to, well, Thanksgiving, one could say that film news has slowed down to a minuscule drip this weekend.

Or, you could use the overindulgence in roast turkey and all the trimmings to appreciate the kind of news that might have been swept under the carpet on busier days.

News like the fact Michael Giacchino will return to compose the music for Star Trek 2, having done a bang-up job first time round.

Speaking to ComingSoon, Giacchino confirmed, "Yes, I'll be back… I'll be there as soon as they finish it."

Oscar-winner Giacchino has flourished the baton for some of the most memorable movie scores of recent years, including The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Let Me In, and Up (for which he took home the Academy Award).

Star Trek 2 will be warping into cinemas on 17 May 2013.

Is Giacchino your favourite composer of recent times? Glad he's back for more Trek? Tell us!

      So glad for this. Giacchino really impressed me in '09 with his work on "Up" and "XI" and I've been a fan since. (Kinda suspected this anyway, of course - if Abrams is around Giacchino is generally after!) XD

      I've loved Michael Giacchino's work since The Incredibles, and I'm so glad to see he's returning for Star Trek 2. I thought his best work was on Star Trek and he should have won the Oscar for that (although Up's music is also brilliant). The John Williams of the future?

      I didn't watch "Lost", so I've never heard it :)

      I loved Star Trek's soundtrack. But he didn't can't get nominated since it isn't technically original. Kind of like Clint Mansell for Black Swan. But Lost has an amazing soundtrack. You don't have to watch the show to enjoy the music. Just look it up on youtube. It is incredible. =)
