balfe composed great orchestral actionmusic for Home and the Kung Fu Panda scores. all 3 scores have not the typical rcp actionmusic, so why shouldn't it be possible for him, to write an orchestral bond score? and if u wanna hear jackman in orchestral action mode, then listen to his Captain America scores. give both composers the bond theme and they will write you at least a more bondian score than thomas newman with Skyfall. but of course john powell would be also great.And David Arnold needs to get back on track for the blockbuster's game. His work on Sherlock is wonderful, but I do not see television as a safe path to his career.This is sacrilege! haha<br><br>Jablonsky or any other MV/RCP composer has never been able to write a good, classic jazz score worthy of 5 stars. As quoted above, Powell and Zimmer were the closest to this, but frankly there are sacred projects, such as Bond, which should have their music universe respected.<br>What in Balfe's filmography points to him being a good Bond choice? Powell's back catalogue is littered with cues that prove he'd be good with Bond. "Escape from the Dragon" from Shrek is basically a David Arnold Bond action cue already. "The New Plan" from Italian Job. "Hog Chase Part 2" from Paycheck. "SUV Chase" from Hancock. Has Balfe ever written anything with that much style and verve? Penguins of Madagascar is the only thing that really comes to mind but that feels more like parody than the genuine article.<br><br>Call me a fanboy all you like, but at least I give reasons for why I support Powell, and am not just clogging threads with "omg POWELLLL BEST COMPOSER OF THE WORLD !11!1!!!11oneone1"if the bond producers would let the rcp guys write an orchestral score, then balfe or jackman would be a good fit. but also a bond score by harry gregson-williams would be interesting for me.
Edmund ! That’s a surprise you would only choose John Powell. Amazing you have the nerve to talks about the Balfe fanboys !!!!!When Will Complete Motion Picture ScoreA total revelation about Wallfisch "Horse Theme" (AKA K/Joe's theme) and its relation with original Tears in the Rain.<br><br>http ://www.mundobso.com/bso/blade-runner-2049Just listen to "Invasion Begins", it's almost like a small suite of Shen's theme.The only MV/RC composer I ever would want to see work on James Bond is John Powell. He's more than capable of doing the sort of cool, suave, jazzy sound that Bond needs. Beyond that...maybe if Zimmer was able to go way, way, *way* back to A League of Their Own mode, that could be neat, but otherwise MV/RC style is simply not a good fit for Bond.<br><br>The Goldeneye score SUCKS. The Thomas Newman ones are only OK. Bring David Arnold back. I have spoken.
Saw the movie over the weekend.The music was the best thing about the movie.not the best but the score made it 1000 times better for sureyeah!!! He was amazing!!! After Dunkrik the best movie in 2017 (for me)Skarsgard really nailed that scene, it was the scene which made it clear how different his Pennywise is from Tim Curry's.Does the blu-ray come with a CD or digital download? Or do you have to buy the album also.Time To Float is sooo strong :-) And a nice Scene btw :-)
All i'd say its worth it in a complete score is We Have To Go film version, and maybe some snippets of Seglass and Merlin's Staff variations.<br><br>Other than that, we got more music in the soundtrack than in the film since most was cut off.Everybody is talking about Shen's Theme. I just can't figure out what his theme really is.<br>Could someone please note where in wich song and at what time his theme appears?<br><br>Thanks very much!mpolonest123 - definitely sounds like it might be inspired by it. I heard the "glockenspiel roll" employed by Bellis used in the track "Deadlights" as well. If these things are intentional nods, then it's pretty cool that the score at least acknowledges the past.I don't know if anybody stayed behind long enough to find out given that the only thing waiting at the end of the credits is one last Pennywise laugh and "IT: Chapter 1". I'd assume "Georgie's Theme" played next.Seriously, I didn't catch very much at all that was left out of the soundtrack....I DID hear alot of repeated tracks in the movie, however...So I can't say what would be notably absent. Anybody got a good example?

Same here, I want to re-live the whole film through score and there is so much more we havent heard yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.

matthew reply Replies: 3 || 2017-10-16 17:03:53
as a giant fucking fan of this movie, I can't put it into words just how lazy is this presentation of the actual music.

it annoys the shit out of me when I read comments on youtube, Itunes, Amazon and also here, like whats the opening music? and the stupid answer is from everybody: "oh yeah, you're looking for The Mole, thats the opening scene!" well, fuck, the movie opens with The Mole, but it goes on for only 2 minutes, and the rest 4 minutes is unused, and the actual 4 minutes after 2 minutes, from the opening is unreleased. it is a minor fact that seems 100% unnoticed by every person. because the music is non-stop in the film, I consider the opening from the logos, until we arrive to the beach.

Shivering Soldier is the first track that appears "as used in the film" form on the release.

Supermarine is a misleading action suite released before the premiere, because of marketing purposes, I think the studio was a bit scared, so they wanted to demonstrate that this is more of a summer blockbuster than a black and white war movie.

Home is the classic "different version in film" case, only to give Hybrid Soldier the chance to come here and give a defense speech about how Zimmer, Nolan, and every soul at warner bros, at water tower music, at remote control and every world-class star status earned professionals in hollywood couldn't make the "as used in film" presentation dream come true. the "no the time for caution" event is still comes hilariously amature from a creative business built on the words: "Make it happen"




mpolonest123 2017-10-16 19:38:03
If they decide to release a proper FYC hopefully that will contain the film order/versions/unreleased/etc.

But I do agree, this is one of those scores that is tremendously improved by the film flow. Honestly I never understood the thinking behind putting out an album if you aren’t going to use the full 79 minutes it allows. Especially when you are missing cues which are vastly different from what’s presented. Why “Escape From Ship” or “No Time For Caution” weren’t there to begin with confuses me.


Max Potcats2017-10-16 22:58:07
You're right, matthew, but i'd said everyone here is used to this kind of album release with HZ/RCP, like The Thin Red Line or Inception with a lot of suites and not so much of the actual movie score. Personally i don't mind because I know the full score will be release some day and I really enjoy suites. However, I'm afraid there is nothing else to do that wait.

ps : i think Hans or RCP has no right to publish a full score (even they own), it's up to the studio--


Ahmad2017-10-17 17:07:40
I totally agree with you. I was let down when I first heard the album. It's great but it's a selection of the score. I feel like they could've done a better job crafting the album.
Hell, something experimental like releasing the music as it is as a long (digital) track would've been interesting.

I think what made it difficult for them is how the tempo changes all the time, which might have resulted in an unpleasant listening experience (I think that might have been their point of view). For example, in the movie, the tempo of the cue "Home" changes a lot and some layers are taken out while the album version has a constant tempo.

Unfortunately, the number of people who noticed how unsatisfying this release is, is quite small, so there won't be anything official. Once again, we have to wait for leaks or bootlegs.

I hate to be a party pooper here, but IMHO Dunkirk is a horrible soundtrack. Just a couple of sustained dissonant chords played over and over and over, ad nauseum. I mean come on Hans, can't you write beautiful and epic melodies anymore? This movie screamed for an epic theme that never materialized.

Now I know I am about to be attacked by all the die-hard Zimmer drones here but I'm just voicing my opinion. I long for the days when you could always count on Hans to deliver goose bump inducing epic memorable themes.


Waymann2017-10-03 16:57:24
I will not attack you but I don't agree that this film screamed for an epic main theme. Dunkirk is an expensive indiefilm, not Hacksaw Ridge or Saving Private Ryan. I think it was pretty clear from the beginning that this would be a more atmospheric score. Be prepared for Blade Runner 2049 this friday. It will be just the same.


Ahmad2017-10-03 16:58:58
"I mean come on Hans, can't you write beautiful and epic melodies anymore? This movie screamed for an epic theme that never materialized."

I hate to be the first one to break this down for you...

but maybe, just maybe, the guy who is in charge doesn't want that? If Nolan wanted an epic melodic theme, Zimmer would've written one. What part of collaboration you people don't understand?
It's not Zimmer's film it's Nolan's, he liked the score PERIOD.
You don't like it? that's okay, but it's perfect as it is and it served the film well. #TrollHarder


Ahmad2017-10-03 17:06:51
Wow that last line came off rude.
There are many ways and approaches to score a film and it makes me sad that some people want the same thing over and over again.

Although I disagree with you, I respect your opinion @Tom


Ds2017-10-03 17:40:08
Hans himself said that this score was more like "music by Christopher Nolan".

Christopher Nolan himself said this score had to be frustrating for Zimmer because his hands were tied for the whole process.


Der-Profl2017-10-03 21:40:27
What I like about humans is, that everyone has a different taste of music. It would be so boring if everyone would like the same. So, you don't like it, Tom, it's okay and I'm fine with that, and I like the score pretty damn much, cause it represents for me the pure sound of suspense, what the film also is, pure suspense. The score suits the film so well, that it is a great score. For me, of course!

Surprised there isn't a Blade Runner page created yet - Zimmer and Wallfisch are officially the only credited composers per the new posters. JJ is officially out...


Ahmad2017-09-05 16:07:12
What! No! I've just purchased JJ's Arrival score and it's so freaking good.
It would've been a very cool trio.


Waymann2017-09-05 16:21:14
He is probably still involved but putting Hans Zimmer on your poster and soundtrack cover will sell a lot more.


Hybrid Soldier2017-09-05 19:19:49

I guess they might've kept one or two themes from Johannsson with Wallfisch handling majority of the score with some contribution from Zimmer. One more month now.

SPECTER2017-09-06 05:10:41
How many composers currently work with HZ at RCP. Do they all work at the same place?


Briom2017-09-06 09:48:10
What about Balfe ? I thought he was working on the film? Ghost in the Shell was a score that Bladerunner remake should be


Callahan2017-09-06 11:59:46
@Spectre So many. Take a look at the list "Team" above. They are 30% to 40% of the total.

@Brion He has his own projects now, man.


Callahan2017-09-06 12:03:38
@Spectre I firmly believe they do not all work in the same place, as the Powell and HGW assistants are considered part of the RCP.


Peter2017-09-06 12:24:17
If it beats Ghost In The Shell then it will be great because Lorne made a score that was a perfect blend synthesizers and an orchestra


Andrew2017-09-06 21:41:14
I doubt it will beat Ghost


Saurabh2017-09-06 21:59:43
Blade Runner isn't just synthesizers and some strings like Ghost in the Shell, although the synthesizer is the most identifiable thing in terms of music. The LA in the first Blade Runner was a melting pot of different cultures which was represented musically in tracks such as Damask Rose, Tales of the Future and in various scenes throughout the movie. If anything, it has a scope for tremendous diversity and musical richness if the composers choose to tap into that idea.


Mike2017-09-07 14:19:09

Okay so this isn't really just for Dunkirk, but rather all of RCP scores. I've just recently gotten into listening to all this; and frankly there is just so much to listen to that I don't know where to start. Any suggestions on where to start? Either by HZ or any of your fav composers in RCP?


Michael2017-08-08 22:05:15
I'd recommend starting off with a score like Crimson tide or Unstoppable by Harry gregson-Williams. That''I'll give a general idea to what the RCP style. Another suggestion would be National Treasure by Trevor Rabin and all of John Powell and Steve Jablonsky's works.


mpolonest123 2017-08-08 22:40:53
Just to name some good ones from composers OTHER than HZ;

John Powell: How To Train Your Dragon 1+2, Pan, The Bourne Supremacy, Antz, Chicken Run
Harry Gregson-Williams: The Martian, Kingdom of Heaven, Shrek 2
Ramon Djawadi: Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans
Steve Jablonsky: Transformers (mainly the 1st two but check out the others) Steamboy, Pain and Gain

Mike (OTM)2017-08-09 22:51:42
Some of my essential Zimmer...

1990s/early 2000s:

—Crimson Tide + The Rock + The Peacemaker (all in the same style)
—The Last Samurai
—Gladiator
—Broken Arrow
—The Prince of Egypt
—Pirates of the Caribbean 1-3
—The Lion King
—Muppet Treasure Island
—Beyond Rangoon

Mid-2000s/2010s:

—Batman Begins + The Dark Knight + (if you listen to the complete score and the unreleased suites) The Dark Knight Rises
—Kung Fu Panda 1-3 (though his presence was more muted on the second one...)
—Sherlock Holmes, the first
—Angels and Demons
—Interstellar
—Inception (I know, I know...BWAAAAAAAAM)
—The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (inventive score in a comparatively stagnant era for Hans...)

And this is missing a whole lot, too. But it should get you somewhere.

Macejko2017-08-10 12:10:10
Unvelievable that the release is once again this botched. There are at least two absolutely crucial and intense cues missing; instead we get two unnecessary variations of Supermarine. Goddammit...


Macejko2017-08-10 12:22:26
Sorry, wanted to make it as a separate post.


meta2017-08-10 14:09:47
what pieces might those be? Supermarine was intercut throughout the film...and I don't recall another piece outside of OIL or Home


Macejko2017-08-10 14:28:43
What I have in mind is the intesifying cue at the very beginning (ends with Mr. Dawson's boat leaving harbour/planes breaking formation - very memorable moment IMHO) and then the nerve-wreckig music that plays during the first drowning sequence (it gets repeated once again later in the film). I was disappointed to found neither on the album.


Meta2017-08-11 01:55:47
You got good ears because I honestly couldn't tell the difference....Much of it to me sounded like Oil when it wasn't sounding like Supermarine, and then if it wasn't sounding like Shivering Soldier, it was sounding like Variation 15 or the Mole....


bro2017-08-11 05:56:11
It's not a matter of good ears, it's a really long, different and really good cue. It's probably the best cue in the movie.


Ahmad2017-08-11 11:37:16
That cue is too good not to be on the album! It starts with a short string variation of the first 2 minutes of Supermarine then slowly turns into a variation of the last three minutes of "The Mole". So it's a hybrid of Supermarine and The Mole.

I was surprised by how different the film version of "Home" was.


mpolonest123 2017-08-11 14:50:25
@macjeko I could be wrong but the drowning cue sounded like a more intense, extended version of that tension build riff at 2:12 in "Despair" from TDKR. I'm sure that the studio will put out an fyc for the score, much like they did interstellar...


badbu2017-08-11 15:38:41
@mpolonest123 i hope so!!! :-) they drop the fyc (interstellar) 1 month after the movie, right?


mpolonest123 2017-08-11 16:40:27
@badbu Usually they drop the fyc closer to awards season. If I had to guess, probably November or December. That is if it still can qualify for an award (considering the main theme is an existing piece of music/more than one composer is credited)

Remote Control Productions. It's Hans' film score company.

The "budget meeting" piece is really so much funny!


SPECTER2017-08-14 04:27:36
For Hans this the best list you'll find. Only his most Elite and melodical scores are on this list.

Crimson Tide
The Rock
The Prince of Egypt
Gladiator
The Last Samurai
King Arthur
Tears of the Sun
Pirates of the Carribean 1-3
Interstellar
Batman Begins
The Dark Knight
Man of Steel
Chappie


Mephariel2017-08-14 06:27:42
@Specter

I am sorry, you want a list with Zimmer's most elite and melodical scores and you left out:

Beyond Rangoon
The Lion King
Driving Miss Daisy
Angels and Demons

and instead...put Chappie? I mean, I like Chappie, but come on...



Ds2017-08-15 00:43:51
I'll never understand why so many people dismiss Chappie. I think it's a brilliant score, as interesting as it is entertaining. It's very melodic in a typical HZ fashion, the electronics sounds partly modern, partly old school, and it's got some fantastic cues. Really, one of my favorites HZ scores in the last few years.


Meta2017-08-15 02:39:50
Are you kidding me? Chappie I consider MILES above Dunkirk, and even Inferno last year...

Best of 2015....


badbu2017-08-15 07:21:27
saw chappie last week for the first time. what a bad movie...jesus...the score is okay but nothing special


mpolonest123 2017-08-15 22:41:58
Yeah, Chappie really is one of the Z-Man's best scores as of late. For all the talk he does of innovating, both TASM2 and Chappie are pretty fresh as compared to BVS/Inferno/Dunkirk.

And yes, the film itself is a hot mess...


SPECTER2017-08-17 00:38:45
I just want to say that if CHAPPiEs score had been done with an orchestra or were to be remade with a live orchestra it would instantly become a hit.


Edmund Meinerts2017-08-17 08:37:54
If Chappie were redone with a live orchestra it would miss the point of that score entirely. And I'm saying that as someone for whom Zimmer's synth overdubs are an irritation most of the time...but that score is electronic at heart and soul, don't mess with it.

I love HZ and friends but I don't understand how their is so much discussion for this score. There was nothing melodical or memorable about this score to me. Interstellar, Chappie, Pirates 5, Transformers are superior listening experiences IMO.


Edmund Meinerts2017-08-27 15:33:48
There's lots of discussion because it's a Nolan/Zimmer scores and those are always Events with a capital E. I'm sure when Ferdinand by Powell comes it it will be a wonderful score and get about four comments (three of which will be by yours truly).

Does anyone know, if we will get some of the missing cues as bonus tracks in the future, for example the track when the start to carry the soldier to the mole? Or do we have to rip it from the movie like Nolan said in one of his interviews?


...2017-08-25 22:15:23
That cue is actually on the ost but it's a shortened alt (second part of the mole). The film version starts with the repeated notes played by the violin which then becomes faster and builds throughout! Let's hope there is a FYC like interstellar


Der-Profl2017-08-26 00:24:50
Yeah, I know, that it's in a shortened alternetive version there, but I love the build-up with the violin so much, that I want to have the film version of this cue.
Another cue which is missing and I want to have is the theme when a ship is sinking. I mean the sirene sounds that hit me really hard in the IMAX theatre and I thought wow. It's not a track which is really beautiful and worth listening over and over, but I think it's essential to the movies climax. The movie tiself is not really beautiful itself, too, because it's a war movie. (I hope you know what I want to say, because I'm a German and my ways to express myself in English is limited to a minimum I learned in school.)
And I have question to your reply, "...": What do you mean with FYC?


Waymann2017-08-26 12:07:24
FYC means For Your Consideration... Composers send in their scores to be nominated for the oscars and something missing cues end up in the tracks they provide the academy.

The cue you are talking about is definitly not on the OST. I have seen the film 4 times now and every time I think damn it's pitty this is not on the score instead of track 2.

Yep that post ^^^ pretty much sums up the already infamous Nolan fanboys. Delusional, illiterate teenagers who consider every movie this British hack makes to be DA BEST EVAAA. Can these kids be even more delusional and stupid? Doubt it. Oh and yes this score is one of Hans' weakest scores and he even knows it. Yet another example of how he's abusing his talent by working for that Nolan guy. Hans, if you're reading this, please go back to working with actual talented directors like Ridley Scott. What you and Ridley have accomplished is legendary. Do another one with him. And now cue the remaining 7 hardcore Nolan fan nerds who will start telling me how great that hack is by quoting critics and RT scores that no sane person cares about, and how I know nothing about film and film music.

Ds2017-08-06 00:28:11
giles: please calm down, actually you are the one who sounds "butthurt" here. I have nothing against this movie, I actually liked it, even though it's far from Nolan's best. But it was too funny seeing such a serious and vehement anti-Nolan post right in reply to a standard Jack Afrogarix comment. Please have a look at the other soundtrack pages on this site, and learn to know this guy, you'll see he's not a Nolan fanboy. He's just... Jack Afrogarix.


Meta2017-08-06 01:40:05
Now, I don't think Nolan is a HACK. To me his movies are pretty much any storyline disassembled and put in different places, like a puzzle, to make the movie more nuanced and such. Which is nice, if you're into that kind of shit and are bored of straightforward storytelling antics...Tarantino does this sort of thing and many find it refreshing.

Still, I don't think he's a GOD either, because take away those little twists and turns that he does and you've got, again, a straightforward story which is much like any other story or movie...and if it wasn't for say, Zimmer and company, he may not have gotten such recognition as he's had over the years, so I don't think it's ALL his own doing.

I will say, however, he's no M. KNIGHT SHAMALAYAN.



James2017-08-06 02:39:57
Nolan interferes, but has never been decisive about the sucess of MV/RCP. On the other hand, Bruckheimer and co. Always have been.

But that doesn't deny nolans importance to zimmers career. He has been his refuge in recent years


Meta2017-08-06 14:25:08
Oh I agree, James. Bruckheimer before him, and now Nolan. Nothing wrong with that...I'd rather work with people who I dig than people I don't dig. But from all the Zimmer scores I've heard over the years I can tell when it's a listenable experience or just sound design. This one is more sound design than the former. I suppose Nolan grants him the leeway to experiment?

Anyway, I don't listen to Dunkirk unless I want to feel intense anxiety for over an hour...That's not exactly a good listening experience for me.



James2017-08-06 15:43:33
In a interview Hans said that score is a result of the work of a one man: Nolan, who led his hands and the other guys who worked with him. He said too that is the most collaborative work of his entire career. I think thatmeans a lot.



James2017-08-06 15:47:29
I think the director's choices prevaleid here.Nolan even apologizes for making the musicians play pieces so unattractives. Lol

Do you guys think Dunkirk will be disqualify from the Oscars because the score used Elgar's theme? Similar to how Johannson was disqualified for using Richter's piece.


Hybrid Soldier2017-07-23 23:42:34
Hans probably hopes so... Warner not so much... lol


Ahmad2017-07-24 00:04:47
Lol, why though?
But yeah I think it will get disqualified. Maybe it'll get a Golden Globe.


Laura2017-07-24 03:53:38
It was so obvious if you know Elgar's composition, Nimrod.


0-cool2017-07-24 22:50:09
Why would Hans hope so? He always seems to be proud and passionate about his Nolan scores and having scored a Nolan movie.


Hybrid Soldier2017-07-24 23:35:49
I'm only talking about o.s.c.a.r.s... Not Nolan !


Gotham Rogue2017-07-25 01:02:30
I think the big difference with Johansson/Richter vs Zimmer/Elgar is that Elgar wrote his Enigma variations in the late 1800s, whereas Richter wrote his piece in 2004. That being said, I hope Elagr's theme won't disqualify him!


Ahmad2017-07-25 05:40:16
I don't think it's about when the piece was composed, it's about how much influence it's going to have on voters. Apparently, the academy thinks that voters can't judge a score subjectively when existing music is used. Plus the credits and additional music won't help it's chances. I think the main difference between this and the Arrival situation is that Nimrod wasn't just pin dropped, it was reworked specifically for the film but it's still not original and "original score" is an important word to remember, plus it wasn't even reworked by Hans himself.



Waymann2017-07-25 09:07:11
Nah, i would rather have Dunkirk win both sounds award instead of the score award. The sound in Dunkirk is masterful and the score is woven into the sound design. As a stand alone not so strong... I think there are better scores this year who deverse the award more.


Zimson2017-07-26 11:16:41
The Academy is composed of 60+ year old bourgeois. They can't differeniate between score and songs on disney soundtracks and they'll often just vote for the score of the movie they liked best. Studios also tried to bribe academy members in the past. Big award season movies even have an "Oscar budget".
So who cares what they think? I'd rather look forward to the world soundtrack awards.


Gotham Rogue2017-07-27 08:24:01
The reason I believe it partially depends on the piece's composition date is because of copyright laws. Arrival had to pay rights to use Richter's piece, just like if it had used a pop song, and I believe this played a big factor in its disqualification. Elgar's piece is public domain now, so it would be like if a score had included a Mozart sonata (extreme comparison).


badbu2017-07-27 08:38:57
Bill Conti gets an Oscar...so...i think Hans get a nomination


Iamtommie2017-08-02 11:47:00
Last year John Ottman was on the Oscar shortlist for X-Men: Apocalypse. He used a piece of Beethoven in the track 'Beethoven Havok'. So if he gets on the shortlist for something like that I think Hans should get a nomination because I read in an interview that they used Elgar's theme but in tuere own way. They did something with layers or something. So I hope he'll get a nomination.


Mephariel2017-08-02 19:45:30
I am not sure if the music being public domain matters or not. Maybe someone else has a better understanding of this but didn't Lesley Barber got disqualified for Manchester By The Sea because she used classical composition throughout, including music from George Frideric Handel?


Gotham Rogue2017-08-03 17:55:19
Per Rule 15 II E of the Academy’s rules and eligibility guidelines, a score “shall not be eligible if it has been diluted by the use of pre-existing music, or it has been diminished in impact by the predominant use of songs or any music not composed specifically for the film by the submitting composer.”

Bill Koufo2017-07-30 20:10:32
Is Hans going to get a composer credit for BR, or just Additional music?


James2017-07-30 20:56:16
Good question.
It's hard to imagine how much work he could produce in those 10 days.
I suppose he will be credited as co-composer, as in the TV series in which he does just the main theme.


Hedon2017-07-30 22:47:04
He has enough composers to compose a full score in 10 days if they need it. Back in the old days Hans did a full score pretty much himself in a couple of weeks, with 90's digital equipment.


James2017-07-31 01:00:45
In this case, these are just a few cues.


Paters2017-07-31 03:22:28
The Ghost in the Shell was very Vangelis but with orchestral elements . Worked very successfully .


Mike782017-08-01 02:15:38
Very true about Ghost sounding vangeles but the orchestra was stunning and brought life to the electronic score - wish they would release the soundtrack now


Saurabh2017-08-01 04:04:41
I think Wallfisch will handle the bulk of the duties here with Hans overseeing the production with little actual contribution. Wallfisch has tremendous talent when it comes to orchestral works but I'm not aware of his electronic chops.


Waymann2017-08-01 09:03:52
In my opinion Wallfisch delivered the best score of the year so far from RCP. A Cure For Wellness is a fantastic score and him working on Blade Runner 2 sounds promising.


MrZimmerFan2017-08-01 10:00:54
You forget the next Friday is releasing his next score: Annabelle 2 and for September, IT



Waymann2017-08-01 10:26:59
Didn't know he was going to do Annabelle 2. Not a big fan of horror scores though but we'll see what he comes up with. Movie gets great reviews so hopefully this will be something.


Waymann2017-08-01 10:31:57
I also just found out that Wallfisch did 2 of my favorite cues on the Atonement soundtrack. Elegy for Dunkirk and Denouement. Funny he worked on Dunkirk and did music for that masterful long take in Atonement at the Dunkirk Beach.


isildur2017-08-01 11:36:42
@Saurabh I don't think it's exactly true. Hans' Rollingstones interview mentions he is working in the nights while he's touring.

@Waymann

Marianelli composed these tracks. Wallfisch was one of the orchestrators and conductors.


James2017-08-01 16:27:00
@Isildur

He says he worked during the break between presentations in Europe and the United States.
In another May interview he said composing on the bus, but I believe he was talking about Dunkirk.


Waymann2017-08-01 16:27:59
Yeah, just read it too when I dove a little bit deeper into that score. But still a small connection to Dunkirk ;)


Mike2017-08-01 17:08:53
I wouldn't say Cure was the best score !!!!! Balfe and Zimmer's score to Genius was ..... GENIUS !!!!


isildur2017-08-01 18:47:02
@James. Yes I remember. But that was while touring the EU. This Rollingstones interview was very recent when he came back to US for his tour and he also said "My lawyers told me not to talk about it". It's not like he can't talk about Dunkirk now. That just leaves BR2049.


Mike (OTM)2017-08-01 19:41:29
Hans once said during a Reddit AMA that, if he could score one movie that another composer got to first, it would have been Blade Runner. He also said he loves what Vangelis did. So this should be interesting indeed.
