Hi all - I know this is the Europe site but any thoughts on whether he is touring the USA in 2021? Love to book tickets in Europe but it would be far cheaper in the USA.Thank you! :)Well, WW was a much more difficult project than Aquaman...<br><br>He had a lot more freedom on that, and started fresh.<br><br>As for WW 2, Hans just said it's a very different movie/time period, so he started "fresh" too !@Hybrid<br><br>And honestly I知 ok with that. RGW did a fantastic job with that score, but I would be lying if I said I thought the themes were anything special. I think he did a much better job with Aquaman in terms of creating memorable tunes and developing the ideas.No, don't expect anything from the first score to return.
Good to know. Hybrid do you have any insight on this release?^ Lol yeah I guess you could count it like that. <br><br>I知 wondering if the template will be similar to Thor: Ragnarok, with electronics in the forefront but still utilizing the orchestra throughout. And the even bigger question; will any of RGW痴 themes return?Yes, Tina Guo did record music for WW84. Although you could make an argument that since she was using an electric cello, that is "synth" music. ;)@mephariel<br>Even better, I知 hoping for a hybrid type score. <br><br>And Tina Guo did post a vid of her recording the WW theme a while back, not sure if it was specifically for this project but if it was it sounds badass!I assume more concerts will be scheduled... looking forward to seeing BARCELONA in the list, please! :)
It'd be awesome if Hans and co. went the Thor: Ragnarok route and created some kickass psychedelic synth ballads. I'm interested to hear how they interpret their WW theme for this setting.Is there a date for Lisbon, Portugal?<br>Thank youthis is never hans :DI just finished the movie last week and the score was the best thing about the film. The scene using the cue "Simba is Alive!" is perfect.Not all synths. Mazzaro and Fleming posted pictures of them recording the score at Air Studios early in November so there will be some orchestral or instrumental music.
As the trailer posts, soundtrack coming from WaterTower Music.No, it's just a slight rework of Blue Monday by New Order. Admittedly, it's quite catchy. Nothing from Hans tho, not even the WW-theme at the end which they did for the first movies trailers. Guess we have to wait till the movie comes out.The only thing that matters to me about the movie is Hans, so I wonder, has the trailer musicalized Hans?Synth Hans I知 guessing ;-)Yeah, it's a nice little mini HTTYD score. It's a bit frustrating that he's seemingly never allowed to develop an idea for very long before moving on to the next thing and the next (probably because of the pacing of the short), but I like the way he plays around with Powell's themes. It makes me think that if they ever decide to make a fourth HTTYD movie and Powell decides he's said all he has to say in the series, Willis would be a good choice to continue it (Zanelli/Pirates style).

Hybrid, what's the story with Finale vs. Safe Now? On this page Finale is listed as Jackman and Zimmer. On the OST page, it's Jackman, Zimmer, & Jasha Klebe. The two versions are different too. Finale has a longer intro and a big outro that makes the Time thing even more obvious. So are they two different tracks with different credits, or is Safe Now just Finale clipped short?

Henry and Hans' best complete film score.


Adam2014-11-24 05:52:58
Do they have another "complete film score" together that people are not aware of?


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-24 09:26:51
Henry IV?

(which is a much better score than this one)


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-24 09:36:11
Well doesn't count much since Hans didn't really write anything on that score... lol


Edmund Meinerts2014-11-24 10:16:07
Yeah I know...it was the only thing I could think of. Well, Jackman did work on stuff like Dark Knight and Pirates 3 (which if you're counting those, makes T-Mann036's comment very ridiculous indeed).

That kind of enthusiasm for a generic percussive mess of a score?

He gets erections from "generic percussive mess"-ed scores. What can anyone do about it? (Rhetoric, btw.)

Interesting to see the cue sheet info. I love reading all these thoughts and comments. I'm going to start comparing these involved score compositions to a classic car car that been locked away in a garage from public view and comes rolling out "all shiny again" one day.......you never know what's been going on under the hood :)

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 13 || 2014-03-11 17:15:02
And here is what the cuesheet says...


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-11 17:30:08
This probably isn't even 100% accurate either...it doesn't include e.g. Jasha Klebe, Lorne Balfe, Matthew Margeson and others who are credited with additionals.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 17:34:15
Of course it's not accurate... It is only interesting for Hans' involvement which is right, but it surely misses all the rest lol...


Lambegue2014-03-11 20:54:27
Yes, very interesting indeed ! Thanks a lot Hybrid


LBF2014-03-11 21:01:46
This all really confusing, Jackman said in an interview with Classic FM that Zimmer didn't write any music for the film.


Lambegue2014-03-11 21:09:48
They wanted to keep it "secret" for some time...Even on this site, the participation of Zimmer wasn't official before several weeks (I think) after the release. So maybe you just heard quite an old interview ?


Edmund Meinerts2014-03-11 21:10:02
I'm sure it's in his contract that he has to say that, LBF... :p


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 21:15:09
Interviews are made to tell lies, or why would any composer need them ? lol


Mike2014-03-11 21:29:35
So Zimmer did the Time ripoff? :D Interesting! Didn't you say it was Lorne though, Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 21:31:01
Oh I still think it's Lorne, but his name will never appear anyway...

I heard even Lorne dropped in the end and Hans finished alone... LOL


LBF2014-03-11 21:34:01
The interview was conducted just a few weeks ago around the BAFTAs, can't put the link on here, but easy to google it. Just seems a little weird as he flat out denies Zimmer being involved at all.


Hybrid Soldier2014-03-11 21:47:59
Simply because he never admitted publicly what a mess (and a true nightmare) this film & score was !

And when you get nominated for stuff, you shut the hell up...


In private, on the contrary... lol


Lambegue2014-03-11 21:54:29
Was it the director who asks Zimmer to come and write some stuff, or was it Jackman who asked for help ?

I just saw the film. I swear that those last 20 seconds before the credits, as it showed the ships and got all loud and Journey to the Line-esque, were directly from Time. I couldn't tell whether the OST track "Safe Now" cut the cue short or if the mix was slightly different within the film, but if I didn't see a complete and total resemblance to Time before (and Journey to the Line, too), I do now.

And I find it funny that Hybrid says the score was such a mess and the director was such a pain when the score really wasn't even that good. It was serviceable enough in context, but the only music I remember was a bunch of loud WAAAAAAAAAHs for suspense, a Bourne ripoff as the pirates first boarded the Alabama, and of course, the near-carbon copy of Time. It seems like if the director was gonna be such a pain, he wouldn't have settled for the score he got.


MacArthur2014-01-28 16:54:48
I thought the score was great.


Mike2014-01-28 17:47:27
I'll admit I was moved at the end there, but that was primarily because of Tom Hanks' awesome acting, not the music primarily.


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-28 20:51:00
What is so great about this score, MacArthur? Seriously. A bunch of limp action cues that are like Green Zone/Bourne with 10% the energy, and then a Time ripoff with about 10% the emotion. I fail to see what even a hardened Zimmer fanboy such as yourself could find to like in that score. It is, at BEST, serviceable, and nothing more.


MacArthur2014-01-28 21:34:12
Agreed Tom hanks was fantastic. and the score was actually entertaining for the film. the pulsing drum cues for the pirates. the theme for the navy. it was very good and moved the story well. that's all one can ask for. and it was (If you can get past Safe Now) a good action score.


NM2014-01-29 01:46:22
Generic city.

The score was the only bad thing about the film and actively distracted me at at least two points (one of which was the end). A lot of scenes were made to feel more like generic action scenes because of the music, and some of the ethnic sounds haven't been fresh since the 90's. A pity such a great film got a temp-track nightmare.


Mike2014-01-29 03:08:08
Well said, NM.


MacArthur2014-01-29 03:43:59
Ok. I still like the film & the music, to each his own I guess.


Mike2014-01-30 03:29:16
Didn't this film also use part of John Powell's United 93 score?


Russel2014-01-30 03:46:27
You like every film score it seems, MacArthur. Haha.


MacArthur2014-01-30 05:12:05
Not all Social Network sucks. Not a huge fan of the Lion King.


AG2014-01-30 09:30:33
Honestly I don't see what all the fuss is about this "Safe Now" track. I just watched the film and it worked beautifully in the scene and I was very moved. Isn't that what the score is meant to do - enhance what's on the screen? So shouldn't we be less concerned about its resemblance to other of Hans' tracks and focus on how it worked in the film? I don't know, just my opinion.


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-30 12:51:07
By that logic, AG, we wouldn't have to write film scores anymore...just create a huge library of cues labeled "action" "drama" "tragedy" "romance" or whatever and cut and paste them into every single movie. Sure, it would work on a basic level. But then the films wouldn't have an individual sound to them. And that's why "Safe Now" is such a weak cue. Because instead of supporting the visuals it makes me wonder where Captain Phillips' totem is and whether he's in a dream or not.


MacArthur2014-01-30 16:11:49
I don't have a problem with it at all. The logic there wasn't bad AG because there were different cues in the film which were good. just Safe now was the only thing that was really close to Time. I don't mind it, but apparently everyone else does.


Rob2014-02-25 00:09:08
I noticed too that the last shots were scored to music that nearly exactly mimicked Time from Inception. Then I saw Hans Zimmer in the "Thank You's" at the end of the credits. I wonder how that came about. Perhaps he asked Hans's permission? It took me out of the movie a bit, but it was the end and I suspect only film music buffs would notice.

Edmund Meinerts2014-01-26 12:43:34
Hm. This score was boring enough on the original release, can't see how a complete score will change things...


Mortifer V.2014-01-26 14:36:47
exactly what I was thinking, Edmund.


MacArthur2014-01-26 17:35:07
I like it.


MrZimmerFan2014-01-26 17:57:59
I have mixed feelings about this, i like certain tracks like Second Attack (i know, there is temp samples of Bourne action-strings, but is so adrenalitic), in the other side, isn't much


Scorefan2014-01-26 20:03:55
So, this version only has jackman cues or zimmer and balfe additional cues?


Hybrid Soldier2014-01-26 21:10:27
It's the finale score...

Obviously the Finale is arranged here by Lorne Balfe, actually...
