I do not see any resemblence of "Goliath" to Last Samurai. It was composed by Jablonsky to resemble "Journey to the Line", which LS has a similar motiff in, but that's as far as it goes. Also, the use of Taiko in Last Samurai is actually more true to their intended use than what was used in the trailer, which was Zimmer's goal.
