just came back from film.....did they shamelessly end up getting Balfe to rescore Mansell's main thematic material in the first half of the film including the shelling/opening titles (which btw, have the GHOST IN THE SHELL title appear TWICE?)? Because it's so different from the IMAX preview music wise, I was so bummed as Mansell's main theme was just amazing there, and in the finished it's just...eh? Mansell's original theme shines through the final third very nicely though.Wow, it's a surprise. From what i know, the movie should have arrived in 2016 and she worked on the movie for almost two years when it was in production.Apparently she was replaced.What happened with Pinar Toprak? It supposed she will make the scoreBalfe is scoring Geostorm as well. Dudes everywhere!
Great News. Enjoyed Planet Earth II immensely.One cues is missing. Rescue theme, with will.i.am voice i guess<br>04 Mad 2 1m11 Traveling Alakey<br>Does anyone know the name of the drum sample of electric drumkit that Hans & Co used a lot during the 90s, and it's in the beginning of Barbossa Is Hungry (around 8-9 seconds into the track).Hi Hans! I'm a big fan and also a Film Composer!<br><br>Currently I will be doing the music score for this short film, but the filmmakers need help with raising funds, could you help us with our crowdfunding?<br><br>https://www.gofundme.com/help-us-to-make-a-good-short-film<br><br>It's for a nice cause! This will be my first music score in a film ever! Thank you and god bless you all!Hi everyone, I would to ask to people who were present at the last year tour if there were some possibility to meet Hans (make a photo or some fan stuff with him). I really want to meet him and tell him how much I admire his work to the world film. :) thx, greetings from Czech Republic.
This is from a twitter message from Lorne<br><br>@Harry2011Movies hopefully it willCannot wait! Planet Earth II was so good, and I'm so pumped for Blue Planet II!Bring on that "Blue Planet II Suite"! Can't wait! ;-)"Must There Be A Superman?", track 5 ;)Where is the score for Batmans nightmare scene? Thanks :)
I wanted to see the movie and never did. Now I know what to listen for when I see it. Thanks for the help!So... Film Music Reporter is reporting that Zimmer, Shea and Klebe will score Blue Planet II. If it's anything like Planet Earth, I will be one happy individual.Geoff Zanelli who has worked on every Pirates film is doing Pirates 5I'm hoppping it comes out the day of the movie comes out but Disney is releasing some of the merchandise after the movie comes out if you would like to know I would try going to the composer Geoff Zanellis website and asking theme it usually takes 2 days but they will email back if not call the Disney music group or Remote Control ProductionsHans Zimmer and Conrad Pope in a film together would be awesome!!

What does the booklet mean crediting "Penguin World" to JunkieXL?


Anonymous2014-12-04 15:43:21
it probably means JXL took care of the Penguins' music in the score.

Afro Circus / I Like To Move It is by Junkie XL, right?


Zimson2014-02-24 20:38:14
I got another question. The melody in "Fur Power!" sounds very familiar to me. Where is it taken from? (Or was it even taken from anywhere?)

Good day.

Could you tell me, what is name of original tune used in composition Afro Circus (i like 2 move it is not meant)

Ds reply Replies: 7 || 2012-06-02 22:59:07
Just saw the movie, it was great fun with absurd humor and incredible stylish effects. The score was great, with several new themes, but there will definitely be a LOAD of great missing cues... as expected :/

Look forward to the album! nice job from Zimmer & Balfe!


Anonymous2012-06-03 23:40:14
All recent sequel scores by Hans Zimmer have been unacceptably short. Makes me wonder what is going to become of Dark Knight Rises.


Mr. Fate2012-06-04 03:53:58
While this score looks to be longer than both Rango and Pirates 4, it is still a bit shorter than the slightly older Zimmer outputs like Pirates 3 and Sherlock Holmes.

What startles me about this track list is track number 9...Hmmm, where else have we seen that song get used before? While it looks to be not the whole song, wouldn't it be dandy if it was in stereo?


Mr. Charles2012-06-04 06:42:21
I'm hoping the reason OST & AGoS have sucked so bad is that Hans has been hard at work making TDKR a masterpiece of a score. And if not, I just may lose all hope in mankind


Ds2012-06-04 08:43:22
Mr Charles, I completely agree.

But I promise you, the score for Madagascar 3 is very cool, far from a simple remixing of the old themes! Hans is back, that's a good news for TDKR :)


Mr. Fate2012-06-07 19:24:04
Oops, I take back everything I said a couple days ago. See, I didn't realize that over half of this soundtrack was made up of songs by various artists, and if other sources are right, we are left only with about 18 minutes of score.

That is simply obscene. Rango was 34 minutes long, but then we stepped it up a bit with Pirates 4 coming in at 45 minutes...except that if you remove all the unused, irrelevant Rodrigo y Gabriela pieces you're left with only 26 minutes of actual score.

Now we only have 18 minutes?? We could expect the trend to continue until we're left with an album full of various artists' music and one 2-minute long cue from Zimmer, and after that, he'll just stop releasing his music altogether!

Also, I see from other sources that "Non Je Ne Regrette Rien" was not performed by Edith Piaf, so there goes that hope. Rant over.


Ds2012-06-08 09:12:46
Mr Fate: you're right, but let's look back in the '90. "True Romance", "Days of Thunder", "Rain Man", .... They ALL were compilations with 2 or 3 Zimmer cues.

Here, the label wants clearly to please the kids with songs... It's sad but it is so. It's still better than Madagascar 1 & 2.

I find the Zimmer cues here very cool, with 2 or 3 good new themes.


Mr. Charles2012-06-08 09:55:57
Ahh! I love True Romance! "You're So Cool" is one of my favorite Zimmer pieces :D

Phil reply Replies: 1 || 2012-06-06 18:24:28
in the Austrian iTunes store there is instead of the track "We No Speak Americano" the song "Cool Jerk" from The Capitols! can anybody explain me why?


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-07 17:36:41
Yeah the French lossless digital store (meaning, Qobuz... :P) I bought it from has indeed Cool Jerk instead of We Speak No Americano.

Weird... :P

But, who cares, it's not like they replaced a score cue... :)

track 9: Light The Hoop On Fire! sounds promising

only 5 score tracks...pity

oh well...it's enough to keep us going till TDKR!


Ds2012-05-14 21:54:40
5 tracks! Over 17 min of score! it's an improvement, considering the first score was over 10 min and the 2nd did contain only 3 pure score tracks from Zimmer :)


Hybrid Soldier2012-05-14 22:42:10
There's not "only" 5 tracks of score...

Actually the only "non" score material is Katy Perry & Yolande Be Cool's tracks.

All rest is handled by HZ's team.


Warfighter2012-05-16 02:22:27
@Hybrid Great to hear that! It's just i'm more into instrumental score than songs :D but you're right: this is Madagascar...songs will be fun!

I'm looking forward to it!

So, Balfe and minions will do the work, and Hans will again put his name on the cover...


Ds2012-05-12 12:27:53
I don't think so. How do you explain then why the Zimmer scores are always better than the "minion"-alone scores?

Enjoy the great music from Zimmer & co and stop complaining! The music is more than what's written on the cover :)
