I could see it getting some kind of release down the line, its not uncommon for Directors Cuts to pop up years after a film has left theaters. What I dont see is them shelling out money to finish/add effects or whatever other touch ups may be needed.<br><br>My personal hope is that (somehow) they get Junkie involved to finish whatever score he started, just to hear his take.Years ago, Hybrid posted that James Newton Howard was in charge of "The Bat Cave" and people got confused since that cue is clearly Zimmer. Well here's James Newton Howard talking about that cue directly on a score podcast:<br><br>I had written what I thought was a really good theme, played for that moment when Bruce Wayne goes into the bat cave and all the bats come flying around. And I thought it was pretty good. And then the next day, Hans arrived with his kind of infamous ostinato with the two french horn notes, and that was pretty much the way to go. So it was a mutual effort on that movie, pretty much on every cue.<br><br>There ya go. "The Bat Cave" sounds like Hans because it is. lol. <br>I don't think WB release the Snyder Cut, because with the new way they take, it could affect the new movies. <br>But, i would like to see the Snyder cutWhere can I get my hands on this complete score version please - is it available for purchase anywhere?Would you be able to do a more accurate breakdown of the OST Hybrid? Since this seems to be based off of old cuesheet info.
Looking at the complete score for this listed here and the OST, there are a lot of credit inconsistencies between the two. Maestro aka Main Title is apparently HZ, LB, IH yet its listed as solo HZ. Kayak for One is listed as A, RA, HP yet here it's solo Allison. what gives?Can't seem to recall if Hans was ever considered for this project.... Mancina rocked it of course, but I just wonder what Hans would've done....Maybe something like Drop Zone?<br><br>P.S. A little sidenote: I recently saw STONE COLD again and honestly Sylvester Levay's score for the movie has to be one of the best "manly", "hardcore" action scores. IMO. So freakin' badass! I can't believe there's no official release. Or even a bootleg.... Levay deserves more recognition overall. Stone Cold in particular is an action score that we simply don't hear nowadays. And I really miss that sound. I'm sure most of you have seen the movie so you know what I'm talking about. If not, go see it ASAP. You gonna have a blast :)I don't know what it is but with every Star Wars score I'm kinda getting bored after a while.<br>But this one, it's just wooow. The musoc stays spectacular every time I listen to it. From the know  SW element in Reminiscence Therapy & I to The Maw to the new theme for Han, Chewie, Qi'ra, L3 & Enfys Nest.<br><br>It doesn't happen a lot a lot that a movke that I don't like a lot, some parts, but the rest was meh, that the score is still my number 1 of 2018 and one of the best of the last 10 years!!! Hatts off Mr. PowellDear Mr. Zimmer!<br>Recently, our mother showed us a newspaper article about you and explained proudly: "This is my Hnschen.<br>Our mother Rosemarie Tangerner born Lagger was your nanny, when you were 1 - 2 years old.<br>She often told us about her time in Deutschland at her parents' house and showed us pictures of her and you. Unfortunately, I can not insert the photos on this page, but I would have liked to show them.<br>My mother felt very well with her family and spent a nice time with them.<br>We wanted to buy tivkets for our concert in Graz, but unfortunately the concert has been sold out for a long time.<br>Maybe it is possible to get tickets for your concert.<br>I would like to surprise my mother with a reunion with you.<br>We would be happy to hear from you personally!<br>Lovely greetings from Austria<br>Ulrike TangernerTracklist<br><br>1.

This Isn't You<br>11. Hellboy<br>12. Rock Me Like a Hurricane (Spanish Version)
Snyder confirmed that his cut of the film is essentially done, its just up to WB to release it."For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views."<br><br>Eh, by that definition The Imperial March would also be a power anthem, and I'd question that (to put it lightly). I don't think popularity has much to do with a definition of a type of music really. Rather I'd say a power anthem is a bold, muscular, relatively simple and often rock/pop-influenced theme that builds up and gets bigger and bigger over time, the prototype being Hans Zimmer's theme from Crimson Tide. And Balfe has written plenty of them. Whether they're good or not is something that can be debated, but e.g. the opening track of PR:U definitely fits the criteria of a power anthem for me.Power Anthems!!!!!! Is this the 1980s again!!!im the first to love a great tune but we are in another decade now.<br><br>Talking of tunes , Balfes best is still Ohs Theme from Home.Balfe writes epic themes constantly<br>==================<br><br>Epic themes, yes.<br><br>Actual power anthems on par with Now We Are Free and My Name is Lincoln......No. In my opinion.but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion<br>=============<br><br>My point as well.
Practically every single one of his recent scores have had at least 1 power anthem<br>=============<br><br>Clearly we have a different understanding of what a "power anthem" is. For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views.<br><br>None of the tracks in the Hurricane Heist score can compare to these power anthems. None. Same goes for 12 Strong, PacRim 2 and (lol) Lego Batman. Only 13 Hours comes close. And that's because Michael Bay is the type of director who loves and demands power anthems (and thank God for that). It's no wonder that some of the most famous power anthems come from his movies...<br><br>I'm not saying all of that to undermine Balfe. It's just my personal observation.Balfe writes epic themes constantly.Assassins Creed,Beyond Two Souls,Geostorm are just some examples.Track 1 of PR: U is a power anthem, Brothers from Hurricane Heist is a power anthem, 12 Strong is a bit iffy as a lot of them aren't full anthems and more like action cues that go on for a bit. But I would disagree on the bad themes, I really enjoy the Brothers theme from HH (best moments in the score is when it crops up) and the main theme from PR: U, but aside from that they're not his best works.Hope you keep the staff ratings though, its useful for me as a lot of the people here have similar musical tastes to me and it helps to find ones that I might like.i wouldn't say, that Pacific Rim Uprising, Hurricane Heist and 12 Strong have power anthems. all 3 don't have even good themes. they are ok and they are the best part in every score, but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion.

Finally got a chance to listen to this one all the way through (after seeing the film) and I can definitely see why HZ is proud of it. It's funny that he says "Inferno" is his most experimental/dark score because honestly, I think The Fan takes the cake.

You can hear a lot of obvious foreshadowing of some of Zimmer's later work; the piano/heartbeat effect from Hannibal, the electronics of Chappie, even some of the whispering for Electro. Also props to the beautiful incorporation of the main theme in "Letting Go"

My only gripe is that this doesn't belong with a better film, I feel like more people would discover and appreciate it alongside something like The Rock or Crimson Tide.


mpolonest1232017-02-15 21:21:40
Oh, and forgot to mention the EXTREMELY obvious inspiration for The Kraken in "Gil's End"!


Michael Poleschuck2017-02-16 03:49:19
Yeah, you're right! It's fantastic!

So from what I found HGW wrote 5 cues of this score, Rona 3...

Gonna need some checking before I can tell which cues ! lol


NotSoAnonymous2015-02-03 16:47:07
I really love this score. It seems to always be forgotten about

The Fan expanded score is ultimately one of the BEST soundtrack Hans have ever composed. 1996 was indeed the Year of Hans. "Broken Arrow", "The Rock"... and now, The Fan. Main Titles and Game Tension are just a few of my favorite tracks and Terrence Trent D'Arby (Sign Your Name, Wishing Well, etc.) have done a tremendous job performing "Letting Go" and it was, in my POV, emotional.

Hulk reply Replies: 14 || 2014-05-08 13:38:52
Great score! The main theme is so simple and efficient in the movie and outside!

I noticed a thing : Transformers "Skorponok" theme has a lot of similarities with some cues of this score. Example : Gil Falling Down : 1:00 - 2:00 Sacr steve! :D


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 13:59:46
What's this? The Transformers score sounding like something older? The devil you say?!

I just "found" this myself; looking forward to giving it a listen once I've got my damn finals out of the way...


Hulk2014-05-08 14:12:41
I don't said the devil by the way! :D


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 14:26:08
I know, I know, it's just an expression. Jablonsky's scores are known for helping themselves to the occasional idea or theme from a previous score, so this doesn't really come as a surprise to me, is all. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 14:41:21
Before being blamed, Steve would need to have anything to do with Skorponok...


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-08 15:01:15
So is Skorponok really a solo Trevor Morris cue? Not Jablonsky/Morris, but just Morris?


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 15:08:56
Oh Morris did work on it, and probably was not alone... Anyway... I told The Fan is the father of many scores... :)


LP2014-05-08 18:42:56
I thought Harry did more work on this. And Jeff Rona did a few cues toward the end, involving rain/water (since he had worked on White Squall)


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-08 19:02:54
Harry didn't write on The Fan... He only conducted it...

Rona worked on a few cues like The Rescue or Fans Are Losers...


LP 2014-05-08 19:52:24
Thank you for the clarification.


Anonymous2014-05-08 20:46:05
FINALLY!!! Excellent stuff, just great. Game Tension is superb!!


rockhound2014-05-09 08:04:29
I also thought, that Harry Gregson-Williams was more involved in this score, because a couple of tracks have the Enemy Of The State sound. Harry also said in his Tony Scott tribute on facebook the following:

"I first met Tony way back on his rather grim movie 'The Fan'. You could say it was on that score that Hans Zimmer passed scoring duties of his movies over to me."

But maybe he meant that in a different way. Nonetheless it is a fantastic score by Hans.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-09 09:08:45
Harry meant The Fan was Hans' last score for Tony and he handled after...


And yeah, the big EOTS rips are just temptrack...


Steve2014-05-10 01:02:54
ummm how were there EOTS temptracks in The Fan if EOTS hadn't come out yet??


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-10 09:14:42
I obviously meant the other way around...

Hybrid: It would be great if you could put up an additional track on the player - perhaps Game Tension or Gil's End :)

"Main Titles" is fantastic.
