Into Darkness latest: Music and costumes UPDATED

That enterprising young man, Michael Giacchino, has been tweeting videos of the recording of his soundtrack for Star Trek Into Darkness. All three four posted so far seem to be from the closing titles, which like the first nuTrek film incorporate Alexander Courage's original Star Trek theme alongside Giacchino's rousing new stuff. Have a listen, the third and fourth videos have a choir too!:





Giacchino also tweet this interesting behind-the-scenes comment and image:

I wonder if we're going to get some music sung in Klingon?

In my last Into Darkness round-up I mentioned Anovos is re-issuing some of it's nuTrek costumes. Well Entertainment Earth have now added the missing female versions; you can now pre-order an Uhura or Carol Marcus uniform, as well as the Kirk, Spock, and Scotty tunics.

At the lower end of the price scale, as Rubie's Costumes are also making sure their nuTrek costumes are available again too. Their catalogue also includes several blank spaces that they intend to fill with new costumes for Harrison and Klingons, as well as new weapons for both characters, to add to their range of brightly coloured side-arms:

Are we sure these videos aren't from 2009? Seems a little odd that the end credits music would be IDENTICAL in this film as it was to the last one..

Pretty sure, unless Giacchino is lying about them for some reason... Not THAT odd that the end credits in a film series would use the iconic music of the franchise - I wouldn't be surprised to hear the signature themes of Star Wars, James Bond, Mission Impossible, etc over the credits of those series.
