It's not in the OST release... :/Do anyone know what was that soundtrack that plays at opening scene? There where The Flying Dutchman rises from the sea, adn will and Henry have a little discourse. I think it`s some variation of "one day".I love this musicStill doesn't beat Lego Batman for best soundtrack this year. But a close secondI saw the movie tonight and I think that the music is great on the album, but in the movie it's fantastic. It gives something special and something extra to a lot of scenes. I think Zanelli did a great job on the score, with the use if new and old themes.
"This is the best score of the franchise since At World's End."<br><br>Watch out you don't trip over that low bar. ;)Maybe because it is IDENTICAL the another theme of the same series?I haven't seen the movie yet, but I will soon, but I've heard the soundtrack and I have only one thing to say. This is the best score of the franchise since At World's End. I had tears in my eyes every time an old theme played. I liked the score for On Stranger Tides, but I didn't like how it relied too much on older themes. I appreciate this score for not using the Ship battle theme and the rolling cage chase motif which I'm kinda tired of hearing them. I love the clever use of One Day as a theme for Henry Turner. Of course, everytime Jack's Themes (both the intro theme, the cello theme, and his DMC theme) and He's A Pirate show up, I can't help but smile and jump up and down. What about the new stuff? A lot of people have criticized Salazar's Theme for sounding like Blackbeard. It does don't get me wrong, but Zanelli isn't the first person to do this. The Winter Soldier is derived from Why So Serious. Optimus Prime's theme is IDENTICAL to the Knights March from King Arthur. Discombobulate from Sherlock Holmes, Absurdity from The Lone Ranger, and The Red Capes Are Coming from Batman v. Superman ALL SOUND THE SAME. They're awesome, but similar. Why is it so bad now? I like the rock elements in Salazar's theme and it makes it quite scary. Carina's Theme (The Brightest Star in the North) is also the main theme of the movie and it is perfect beyond belief. Her theme very much resembles past love themes, but it has a sense of herorism to it. I always gravitate to composer's themes for female characters (John Williams with my girls from Star Wars). The new adventure theme is epic! It does sound like He's A Pirate, but it is very catchy. I don't know what the score sounds like in the movie, but it sounds really good on the official soundtrack. To end this, all the action music is incredibly fun. Hans should be proud. Here are my top  5 favorite tracks:<br><br>1. Beyond My Beloved Horizon<br>2. The Brightest Star in the North<br>3. No Woman Has Ever Handled My Herschel<br>4. My Name is Barbossa<br>5. The Dying GullThe orchestrators are the same.<br><br>You really think the other composers aren't busy enough these days ? It was 10 YEARS ago ! lol*necessary (sorry about my english)
This composing lacks on every important aspect that make a film music score so nessesary to the movie itself. This music has no evolution, has no entity or identity.<br><br>You only know that you are listening the "WONDER WOMAN" ost when you listen the references to the now mythical (Zimmer) theme from Batman v Superman. And when this theme sounds in this composing it feels totaly out of place, really a shame.<br><br>Beyond, this music could easily work with another summer blockbuster like Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean or a generic action flick.<br>For years Iíve been defending "DC" music works against the  Marvelís (MCU) soul-less soundtracks. And now after three awesome ost (DCEU) I have to eat my words.<br>Is not necessary to talk about how great are Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad (ok, this last less, but with a epic main theme). You only need to listen Rupert Gregson-Williams Wonder Woman, and then play one of this three compositions.<br><br>But the most disappointing thing, is the great missed oportunity with the Wonder Woman Theme last year. That exotic tone, that woman strengh that you feel when you are listen this epic theme. Here all this feelings are lost. At the end, another Zimmer-Like Šlbum. <br>But like always in the "Zimmer-Like" longtime Šlbum library, not that height, not that quality, because if Wonder Womanís score remebers us something, is one and clear truth: Only Exists One Hans Zimmer.<br>What I don't understand is why couldn't they at least aim for the best soundscape this franchise have had by bringing the rest of the team from AWE of composers, arrangers and orchestrators back. If we look at AWE, apart from Zimmer, there was Zanelli, Jackman, Glennie-Smith, Balfe, ÷rvarsson, Gire and Sponsler on board. If they could choose one lead composer in Zimmer's absence, then whatever some dude wrote would at least sound interesting because of the colorful instrumentation and big, fresh orchestral sound AWE had. Or maybe, just rearrange old themes from the other movies in true AWE style would work just as well. There's plenty of material from POTC 1 that hasn't been used in the other films, and much of it would shine if orchestrated and performed in AWE's sonic fashion rather than the cheap sound the first film had.Fantastic album, particularly HGW's Metal Gear Solid and HZ's Call of Duty! Highly recommendedZanelli made a wonderful job with Zimmer's themes.<br>The new themes are great too, but he really did Zimmer's themes justice. I like the continuity.<br>Track 9.El Matador Del Mar, my favorite on the album.Maybe it's the end credits after the song
I also love the appearence of the theme in the end of Trafalgar Celebartion. Does anybody know what Action Reaction exactly is? It sounds a bit like a remix from the main theme but it could also be a part of the movie soundtrack. i don't know but it sounds cool.After listening to it the first time I thought this was a very good Zimmer score, but suddenly realized it was Rupert Gregson-Williams and that's a very good thing because he has been able to bring this Zimmer classic sound but with his own voice, as they said above here, with Last Samurai-like anthems and also remind me a bit of the second half of Hacksaw Ridge score, and that's great.<br>I specially liked No Man's Land, Wrath of Wonder Woman, Hell Hath No Fury and Lightning Strikes (well, in general, the second half is pretty awesome with many action heroic themes).<br>Cannot wait to hear it in the context of the movie.Love Maestro in The Holiday! The music keeps bringing me back to the movie. Something delightful about it!This is "One day" theme of the third soundtrack xDListen to 12:38 above and then also Main Title or Top of the World from Last of the Mohicans. Trevor Jones should have a listen.

8 additional composers! Busy score!


Mike2013-07-17 00:16:40
If I'm not mistaken, the reason there's so many is because Verbinski made some decision that involved the need for the score to be reworked, almost from scratch, in a short time.

It seems Hans likes to take exisiting pieces of music and mixes them instead of writing new music.
Also the main theme is just another version of Jack Sparrow's theme.
I think his last REALLY good score was King Arthur.

The new "Lone Ranger" trailer states: "MUSIC BY HANS ZIMMER" !!!

I thought it was scored by Jack White, but this is AWESOME news!


Macejko2012-12-11 13:08:03
It's a proof that justice exists!


Tim2012-12-11 17:37:51
Yay! Before Hans Jack White was on the notes - at least that's what imbd said at that time ;)


Vordmira2012-12-12 00:19:10
Jack White might sing a theme song for the film which is co-written by Hans Zimmer


Mike2012-12-12 00:28:21
Speaking of films Hans Zimmer will score, did anyone see the newest trailer for Man of Steel? The music sounded very Gladiator-ish, but I don't know if that's what it was.


Mr. Charles2012-12-12 01:49:22
I hear it, Mike. It almost sounds like an alternate version of "Elysium". It's not quite what we hear on the OST. If it's not Gladiator, it's definitely Lisa Gerrard. Without a doubt


Zantlwisder2012-12-12 03:31:10
It's Lisa Gerrard's "Elegy"


tomPoland2012-12-12 13:50:15
it's terrible news - hz is making MoS, he shouldn't involve in something else
no minions, co-writers, and so on - pure Zimmer please, its THE SUPERMAN, no some B class movie


Ds2012-12-12 13:56:59
I think the music we hear in the beginning of the MoS trailer is the same track we heard in Zack Snyder's movie "Legend of the Guardians". Kind of a remix of the Lisa Gerrard song from "Man on Fire".


Ds2012-12-12 14:38:18
No sorry i was wrong, this is definitely "Elegy" by Lisa Gerrard. Sorry!


blu2012-12-12 15:17:39
I am pretty sure master Z can handle this whilst giving MoS the best he can. These guys have never failed to deliver under tight deadlines before.


tomPoland2012-12-12 15:42:06
that's the point - there is no tight deadlines! he has like 7 months to create something memorable, epic, climatic; with orchestra, choir and all that goosebump stuff

taking another project will make MoS worse that it could be, i fear


Hybrid Soldier2012-12-12 15:58:34
You speak like Hans is just starting working on MOS.

You think he was sleeping in the last 5 months ? ;)


Pierre2012-12-12 17:39:06
He's currently recording Man of Steel. That means it's written. Loads of time to work on the Lone Ranger.


Jasper2012-12-12 18:16:46
I honestly think that the coming year is going to be the most exciting Hans Zimmer year in a long time. As far as I know, he'll be doing the soundtracks for 3 major films next year, none of them sequels. All new themes, all new music. Looking forward to an amazing 2013. If the world doesn't end, that is :p


Mike2012-12-12 22:13:12
I'm excited for the same reason, Jasper, but we shouldn't get our hopes too high. Maybe he'll be rushed and we'll have another Curse of the Black Pearl that takes cues from his other movies.

In all seriousness though, I'm really excited. Especially for Man of Steel.


Ds2012-12-12 22:21:48
Man of Steel & Lone Ranger scores will certainly be great, but i think Lone Ranger is more the kind of movie that needs a true fantastic and epic score - the kind of movie for which Hans is the best.


Joshua2012-12-12 22:24:37
Score for Man Of Steel records in mid January. He'll have 5-6 months to work on Lone Ranger.


Mike2012-12-12 22:35:34

Thank you


Jiri W Krecek2011-09-09 05:47:06
THe flying bat song is Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner


S2012-01-01 03:26:32
But the 2.15 bit is actually from 'An der schŲnen blauen Donau Waltz' composed by Johann Strauss II

The song when Rango walks out in the desert isn't by Zimmer. It's Danny Elfmans song "Finale" from the Movie "The Kingdom" - don't know why they used this one...wasn't Zimmer able to compose a better track?

That little track if i think its the same as what you mean, is kind of a steller reprise of the Rango theme:

The OSt version cuts that piece out and instead uses a banjo intro, while th emovie cuts right to the guitar then that piece, then the end....I found it weird. I dont know who composed it tho.

Maybe it was used in the temp track and Verbinski really liked it. I thought it fitted the scene perfectly, best piece of music in the entire film. Judging by the rest of the score it's pretty obvious Zimmer wasn't capable to compose something better.

Norm reply Replies: 0 || 2011-03-14 00:00:00
@ Trent

You're right - that track fits the scene perfectly. But if I was the composer for a movie and the director said to me: "Don't Bother - we use the work of another Composer for that scene" I would have worked my ass of the create a track a hundred times better! Just wondered why Zimmer hasn't done that.
