Probably not. The two are indepedent events.@Edmund<br><br>actually i wasn't interested in the Dragon scores...or Pan, for that matter. Xmen 3 wasn't too bad, but he still had that tight RCP score techniques...Yeah, I think he must have changed his methods since Hancock/Green Zone...Because I'm not interested in hsi work after that. Must be those pesky drums he doesnt use anymore?Yeah, I know there's more than just the main theme in those Trek scores, I was just exaggerating to make a point. :pPretty sure the reason HGW works with Washington so often is because Tony Scott worked with him so often... :pWait, Meta, you haven't liked Powell since Hancock? This despite putting out his career peak in the How to Train Your Dragon scores? I mean, if there's anything that proves he's got the chops for Star Wars style orchestral and thematic music, it's those two (and X-Men: The Last Stand, and Pan).
Excellent score!  Reminds me of pieces of The Rock, BHD, Drop Zone, stuff from The Pacific.  Great job Andrew!  Nice themes!  Fun RCP stuff!Yes it was announced a while back, Harry returns !I can confirm that he is working on it.I'm waiting for Harry's response for returning for the sequel or not? My opinion is, I think Harry seem like working with Denzel Washington often in the movies like Man Of Fire, Deja Vu, and The Taking Of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable, The Equalizer, I think Antoine Fuqua director should hire him back again, but I don't know if his schedule conflicts with busy working with MEG Score.@superultramegaa and others<br><br>Honestly, if you take an objective look back, you can still see RC written all over Powell...And thats all well and good, because I like Powell. Well, maybe not since Hancock, but I like his style.<br><br>That being said, This will be the official first Star Wars outing with an RC score. Sure, Williams phoned in a theme...But going forward I expect RC influence to be the norm.<br><br>And, as for Giacchino...Jesus Christ. For someone who practically MADE his career apeing Williams (Jurassic Park and Medal of Honor video games spring to mind), his Rogue One was  dreadful...I cant disagree with you. <br><br><br>
Powell is heavily influenced by Zimmer. The only thing that differs him from the others is that he really has a style of his own that matches the traces of the career he shared with Zimmer. If you listen to any of your action scores, you will notice that they are clearly RCP scores. Even the orchestral, especially "Pan" have some passages that are very reminiscent of Pirates, Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.Really awesome "Is She With You?" cover by Nir Shor!Hey Hybrid Soldier, is Harry returning for the Sequel??Hybrid, Hollywood in Vienna just announced that Zimmer will be receiving the Max Steiner award. Do you know if the Hollywood in Vienna program the same as the The World of Hans Zimmer program? If it is, King Arthur is confirmed to be in the program as well.I wasn't saying Powell sounds like Williams. I'm saying he's closer in sound to Williams than he is to Zimmer for his animated movies.
While John Powell is usually far more melodic and classical than your usual RCP composer, I don't see the Williams similarity. His music doesn't really sounds like Williams' scores. But I think he is perfect for Star Wars. I am much more excited about this than Giacchino's Rogue One.Yeah, this is the best RCP action score of the year so far. Much better than Balfe's efforts and Junkie's.@superultramega Itís funny you should say that about Rogue One because, even though I do like the themes, I will agree that it definitely is weaker than any Star Wars score and seems to lack the life Giacchino normally puts into his music.<br><br>Even weirder, his music for Jupiter Ascending (another big space opera) is far more aggressive and developed, and probably one of his best. It makes me wonder if the Star Wars team wanted the safe route....Ok, not restraint on drums, but I still don't really see how exactly his music for animated films comes even close to being an RC product. When I think of RC I think of the music for the Pirates movies, the early Bay and Bruckheimer films, etc. The work on Shrek, Antz, Ice Age, and How to Train Your Dragon is much closer to a traditional Williams score than any RC product. <br><br>Plus he's working on Star Wars so he's obviously going to try his damnedest to stick to that kind of music, and to avoid the Zimmer style. I just don't understand why you think Powell, of all people is going to be the one to dilute the Star Wars sound. <br><br>Hell, I think Giacchino's score for Rogue One was pretty much nothing more than an unmemorable, and bland version of Star Wars with very little going on besides broken down notes of the Star Wars theme playing and generic Williams copy. Just like Jurassic World. I don't know how Giacchino makes Williams' style bland but he finds a way. At least with Powell we'll get more style and memorability on top of a Williams imitation.Restraint on drums? <br><br>Have you listened to Green Zone? The Bourne movies? Hancock?<br><br>Cmon...Yeah he's not Zimmer, but this isn't a Williams product we are talking about. It's an RC product. This is what I am talking about.

to answer Hera's question, the most information i could find so far about "now we are free" is that it is writen in a mixture of Farsi, Hebrew, Gaelic, keltisch, greek, african, egyptian, latin, roman and aramaic!! no wonder its so hard to translate!!

hi, I'm 25 and I'm a huge fan of the Hans Zimmer music.
Gladiator is without a doubt THE BEST music I have ever herd in my entire life. It could be nice and soft, sad or aggressive. I can not understand how composers (Hans Zimmer or ppl that composed for him or with him), can possibly think music like that out of their heads. It is just simply AMAZING. Thanks and keep making those movie soundtrack!

This score is one of the best ever written for a film in my opinion. I was hooked from my first ever viewing of the film. And so what if some people are accusing the score of resembling 'Mars' from Holst's Planet suite, its still one of the best damn scores ever composed!

Hera reply Replies: 0 || 2006-06-07 00:00:00
congratulations Mr. Zimmers,you've done a fantasic job on that song "Now We Are Free".Can anyone tell me what language was it in?It sounded pretty sad.anyway the most important thing is that i liked it a lot.

Honor Him is the most stunning piece of music ever written. I am from NZ, and all of my friends agree. We love the entire soundtrack, but would place the thematic material in Honor Him next to any of the great works by Bach and Beethoven. It's my favourtie piece of music, and just typing about it makes me crumble in humility for its greatness. Thankyou for bringing it into this world.

Hans and lisa were really like angels. When I've heard their voices I was crying, they'd touched me deeply. The combine of their voices had gave to the film a magic touch.

And yet another genius production from the ever great Hans Zimmer... Stop making amazing music I can't afford all of these soundtracks. If it wasn't for Hans and his amazing music... I know for a fact that all these movies would not be nearly as good as they are. It is the music that brings life to the picture. Thank you Hans for your amazing music, like I say Music is LIFE!
