Maybe this is just the sceptic in me speaking, but the process is a bit different this time around to when he did the original. This time, he has an existing score to pull from. Those themes are set in stone. And this is, from what I understand, essentially a shot-for-shot remake, so all this really will be is an 'adaptation' rather than a completely fresh score. Beyonce is working with Tim Rice and Elton John for the songs as well, so the responsibilities seem to be as split as they were the first time round.<br><br>If nothing, I guess this will all result in an interesting look at how Zimmer would reinterpret an older score of his. Not many composers get that opportunity.Yeah, I think he has to do The Lion King first because they have to incorporate the songs with the score. There was even an article saying that Beyonce was working with Zimmer.DT-2017<br>It depends, because it's a musical, and some tracks have to be prepped prior to filming, so he might do a little bit of each throughout this year I'm guessingDark Phoenix is out later this year, The Lion King won't be out until next year. It's a pretty safe bet he'll score Dark Phoenix first.hank you
Are the war-cry vocals in Red Warrior part of the music or are they added in for the OST?@Hybrid Really? I guess itís not a total surprise considering how much of a mess the film turned out to be. Divergent was a similar situation where the score in-film was butchered...The funny thing with Dark Tower, is that the production was so lost they made him write the score 3 times... Who knows what were the other versions like...Itís interesting with Junkie. As a composer on a purely scene basis, heís not that good (this is coming from someone who loves his music). My primary issue with him is that he tends to score scenes with ambience, or stretched out sound design. That was a huge problem I had with Dark Tower.<br><br>But like I said elsewhere, heís still growing as a composer. Watch something like Black Mass where the music in film complements the scenes amazingly.Hans does not have the credit as a producer on this.<br><br>XL is limited, I agree, but I hope he does something fun (the film is not even taken seriously).
Funnily enough, I'm far more critical of Hans than Junkie, given how much the former relies on ghostwriters, but the fact of the matter is that Hans fundamentally understands how to write a film score, and Junkie, from what I've heard, simply doesn't. Mad Max, although a success, is more a function of the film suiting an extremely rhythmic, percussive sound, rather than Junkie being competent, IMHO. So - somewhat joking here, as I know it won't happen - I'd be down for Hans writing a suite for this and Junkie basically copy/pasting it into the film.Hybrid, do you have credits for this version by any chance?welp, looks like we're back to the whole "tom holkenborg aka junkie XL" thing againPoint Break is fantastic!!!!I like Dark Tower, not a terrific score, but i liked it.<br><br>But Point Break... oh, god
What about the Dark Phoenix score? Did he finish it already or doing it in between the Lion King?Wow, I never realized that the oscorp theme is basically Watergate from Frost/NixonI wish so much more! The movie promises to be as good as the last Jumanji! I'm not a big fan of Point Break or Dark Tower, but I think XL has a lot of stuff to explore this time, like in Mad Max.It does not have to be anything extraordinary, just something that gives life to the film.Yes he has, for a few months now actually...Hybrid, do you know if Hans has started on the new Lion King yet?

Wow, this score is such a mess, both in film and out. Even moreso than The Lone Ranger. Between the temp tracks and the straight rip offs (Rango Returns which is basically "Parlay" which itself was inspired by Morricone) there is almost nothing original here. That being said, It's still incredibly fun to listen to. The massive amount of co-composers definitely helps.

Also Hybrid, slightly off-topic but did Zimmer have a bad experience on The Lone Ranger? I remember hearing something about that, but wasn't entirely sure (and I honestly love that score)


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-11 20:42:50
No one wants to talk about TLR, not even Verbinski ! lol


mpolonest123 2017-05-11 20:51:57
Lol! I personally didn't find the film that bad, but I guess the production must've been a different story....


Ds2017-05-11 22:16:27
That's a pity because that movie was far from bad. Much better than most of the recent blockbusters in my opinion. Really nothing to be ashamed of.

Something that kinda confuses me: does Hans actually sit down and write the cues WITH people like Geoff Zanelli, or does he just kinda give a layout of the cue and then the other guy goes off and does it on his own?

Areozz reply Replies: 0 || 2013-10-12 17:01:35
Might anyone be able to track down the slate numbers for this set? I already have some of them from when that set of demos surfaced a while back, but there's still a good amount missing.

Thanks for any help!

I'm trying to figure out what other Zimmer work the "Rango Suite" sounds like, but I can't place it. :/


Meta2013-05-31 06:06:25
Broken Arrow, perhaps...Upon listening to Rango it reminded me alt of that score. Particularly the synth banjo/guitar and the harmonica....


MGDrone2013-05-31 18:29:11
As Good As It Gets haha. What do they have in common? Nuthin', but it's still cool to know haha.

Did someone notice Lorne putting a Crysis 2 theme right in the middle of it ? :P


Edmund Meinerts2013-05-13 23:14:26
Not yet. Damnit, too many leaks recently, plus exams, equals not enough time to listen to all these goodies (but apparently enough time to talk about them on the Internet...uhh...)

What cue? :p


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 23:18:53
Rodents Rise !


BTW Lorne didn't do many cues on it, but surely "I'm Going Back" is one of my fav' of the entire score... :)


Prott2013-05-30 23:30:15
Haha, at first I was trying to find the Prophet's theme (wondering how the hell did I manage to miss that one). Then I discovered it's actualy the Alien's theme. :-)
It's a great cue (... too bad this theme is missing from both Rango's and Crysis' OSTs).



Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 0 || 2013-05-30 12:38:00
2 things about this score.

The Elfman temp cue from The Kingdom was kept in the final film cause HZ & Gore couldn't come up with anything better without just being a poor ripoff. Danny's track was perfect, so they decided to keep it.

Atli ÷rvarsson & his assistant Dave Fleming have an official "arranger" & "tech advisor" credit, but it's likely they've done nothing on it. Atli started working on it but on his very first cues left the project to do another score. So unless a few arrangements he did were kept, Atli was not involved... But still got credited !

Preacher reply Replies: 6 || 2013-05-13 05:09:45
OK instead of Luring In Jake, I got a track called Here It Comes that runs 5:25. And a track called The Other Side, which isn't on here. What gives? Why do leaked scores never match the tracklists here? How do we know what's what?


Preacher2013-05-13 05:11:34
And We Ride #2 Alternate is like 50 seconds, not 4 mins... *sigh*


Mike2013-05-13 06:10:25
Remember, Preacher, this is not the complete score. It's expanded. That should tell you immediately that some music will be missing. Remember, too, that even if a score is listed as "complete", it might STILL have music missing (such as The Dark Knight Rises).


Preacher2013-05-13 06:32:21
I understand, but the recent leak has different tracks to this edition. One would think they would be the same.


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 09:45:03
The We Ride length was my bad (hey, try typing this whole stuff in a row without making a typo, TRY ! :P) !

The Other Side, if you have any little knowledge or interest in Hans Zimmer, you'd just notice it's a source cue taken from The Weatherman.


Preacher2013-05-13 10:01:06
Thanks for that - I don't know the Weatherman score.
What about Here It Comes/It's A Miracle? Are they the same?


Hybrid Soldier2013-05-13 10:02:12
Yeah I use official cue sheet titles... :)
