    Michael Giacchino Tapped to Score JW
    In 1997, an unknown composer named Michael Giacchino took on a project that would define his career. The score for the PSX version of "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" was sweeping and melodic, emulating John Williams without copying it. The score was so perfect to the action of the game (it's arguably the only "good" JP video game to date), but more importantly caught the attention of Steven Spielberg, who called Giacchino a "young John Williams", and lead him to recruit the composer for several other Dreamworks Interactive scores, including the first Metal of Honor and early Call of Duty games. Giacchino, of course, would later go on to score "The Incredibles" for Pixar, kicking off his collaboration with the animated studio which would eventually earn him an Oscar for Best Score for "Up". So it's a little more than fitting that tonight he has been named composer of Jurassic World. He commented on this fact to Variety, and suggesting this assignment means he has come "full circle".
