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 its 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...Its interesting with Junkie. As a composer on a purely scene basis, hes 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, hes 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?

While I'm always happy to see HGW get new assignments, I'm also always a bit disappointed when it turns out to be a thriller (which is the case nine times out of ten with him, these days).

I want to hear him in Narnia/Kingdom of Heaven mode again. The only music like that he's written lately are his three cues from Exodus, which are really great, but it's not enough... :(


Saurabh2016-12-18 02:18:43
I guess it's the kind of approach Affleck prefers from HGW. It's the same basic style heard in Gone Baby Gone and The Town where you have an ambient soundscape aided by some slow strings and a guiter.

HGW is extremely adept in writing some aggressive orchestral cues as in KoH, Narnia and Prince of Persia. Hitite Battle was my favorite track from Exodus. Too bad he doesn't do many such projects.

And given the outstanding work he has done with Ridley Scott, its a shame he won't be doing Alien: Covenant.


Edmund Meinerts2016-12-18 11:39:11
Yeah, Affleck seems to have assumed the "director who gets HGW to provide boring thriller scores" mantle from Tony Scott. I'm not really sure what it is with Scott...earlier in his career he would get scores with big themes, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, even Enemy of the State to an extent. But from Spy Game onwards pretty much all the scores to his movies fell into the same boring thriller-score pattern. Wonder what happened to turn him off to bold thematic film scoring? (Then again, I wonder that about most of Hollywood these days...)

"Hittite Battle" and "Tsunami" were both great. A little teasing glimpse of the HGW of old.


Hybrid Soldier2016-12-18 11:52:00
I "mostly" agree with Tony Scott's score BUT Dj&#224; Vu is fantastic in every way, and it has lots of themes... lol


rockhound2016-12-18 14:41:09
Days Of Thunder, Crimson Tide and Enemy Of the State are simpson/bruckheimer productions. Thats why these scores have big heroic themes and an epic feel. but if u listen to The Fan, thats already harry gregson-williams style, although its a zimmer score. i really liked the team tony scott/harry gregson-williams. its a special thriller music style with a very specific sounds. afflecks Gone Baby Gone was also very lovely with a beautiful theme and a couple of nice motifs here and there during the suspense stuff. the new movie has a different setting than the other affleck movies, so maybe harry is using less electronics and more orchestra.


Hari Haran2016-12-18 19:27:03
Edmund, hush.

The amount of people wanting Trent Reznor to score his upcoming Batman film frightens me.

I'd rather have HGW in thriller/superhero mode for Affleck any day, in comparison.


rockhound2016-12-18 20:08:21
sound clips on amazon.de. the music sounds great and nothing like The Town or the tony scott movies.


Brent2016-12-18 20:08:25
^ Harry better score that Batman film.


Ds2016-12-18 23:49:44
I hope HGW scores Affleck's Batman movie, seems like an obvious choice actually. Affleck keeps his relationship with HGW, and Batman remains in RCP territory. Nice deal :-p


JamesT2016-12-19 04:29:11
Love the sound clips and excited for the release on Friday!

Tracks like Ybor City remind me of early sounds of Smilla and Deja Vu; Three Years, Four Months has a Passionada and GBG flair to it; Loretta Figgis is beautiful!

Hybrid: any idea who is doing the vocal work? Lisbeth Scott??

I'm also really looking forward to The Zookeeper's Wife!

wait, HGW is not doing Alien:Covenant? I thought he confirmed before that he is doing this!
