Pemberton is probably the most obvious choice right now. I would definitely love to see Pemberton score this oneYep, I received the news too.<br>Antwerp Sportpaleis is now scheduled on 23rd February 2022, a Wednesday !<br>Tour postponed to 2022 :'(Asides, Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy, dosen't sound like the two Jumanji written by Jackman, by anymeans, and in prefer those two scores over his Uncharted material, altough i like both.If you want a Silvestrian-type of action... Edmonson's action writting in the three Uncharted are terrific, specially Among the Thieves and Drake's Deception.
i think Uncharted 4 and 2 have the best score. U2 is amazing in all regards but I hope Henry does the movie cause he's better at writing action musicIf is Paramount, expect a digital release, but this people is certainly very difficult to guess...A exclusive clip from the film where some of Zimmer's score can be heard<br><br>Loving the short synth part at the very startIt sounds a JP theme. But also sounds like HZ did arrangements of it. The beginning of "shifu's end" kind of sounds like one.  The HZ/Jackman cues for the "splits" and "battle for the scroll" which use it are good, fun cues - but they're kind of awkward and stop/start compared to JP's smoother, more confident arrangements. And they notably don't use the whole theme only fragmented bits where as the JP/Smith cues "prison", "the bridge", "shifu's end" make use of the entire theme and sound more comfortable with the frenetic orchestra material. Just my opinion though.<br>Jungleland is getting released in cinemas and on streaming Nov. 6 and 10 respectively. I hope Lorne's score gets a release alongside it, as the film sounds like it has some good scoring potential.
Well, the two scores by Jackman are good, neither as good as Edmonson's previous work in the franchise, if Naughty Dog have to choose a composer, Edmonson is my choice.<br><br>As for comparations with Tom's Tomb Raider, remember, this franchise is a more classical adventure than a survival action.If he's one of Jackman's best,I hope naughty dog &#8203;&#8203;will hire him again. I just hope that the film does not present a score as loose as Tom's tomb raidervery excited!!!<br>@hybrid theme by hans and the rest david? :PThe soundtrack to Uncharted 4 in my opinion is one of the best Henry has done along with first class. I hope and pray he does the movie although I have no hope for that film. But unfortunately the director likes to work with Ludwig so I don’t think Henry will do it. But I pray he doesMilan Records is going to release it, they said it in his Twitter.
But Rupert's Scores are always good!Rupert's scores for Adam Sandler comedies are almost never released...<br><br>With reason, it's usually 50 cues, 30 sec each !Not always, they released Hubie Halloween last week (which was scored by Rupert Gregson-Williams) and it recieved no score release.Or Pemberton.<br><br>Harry Gregson-Williams maybe not, after what happen in Covenant and Marc Streitenfeld is an off and on choice.Looking at Ridley's recent work, the more realistic choice is either Harry Gregson-Williams or Marc Streitenfeld seeing as he re-joined Ridley for Raised by Wolves.

The collaboration of Hans & Chris is just magical. Their creative visions align perfectly & every movie they did is unparalleled. I hope to see them reunite on future films despite the tough experience they had on this one.

Zoe2020-10-12 15:24:32
i sincerly hope not. enough of the nolan-collab which destroyed the beauty of hans' melodical writing.

Bilal Kahhaleh2020-10-12 15:52:34
I disagree, all his other films with Nolan have beautiful melodic pieces, Dunkirk does not because that's what's best for the story. I'm wishing for more collabs because although Ludwig did a good job on Tenet, Hans was definitely missed.

Both Hans & Chris are revolutionaries, and they still have new worlds to create through their work, let's hope their relationship is intact.

MrZimmerFan2020-10-12 18:38:22
'destroyed the beauty of hans' melodical writing'

Someone hasen't listen Inception neither Interstellar.

Edmund Meinerts2020-10-12 18:44:01
Those two scores have melodies but are still less melodic, overall, than Zimmer's older work.

MrZimmerFan2020-10-12 20:02:32
But that isn't the matter here.

It's obvious Interstellar or Inception haven't some of the most melodical writing of The Lion King or Rain Man, still, those two scores are not the 'destruction' that person have said. Dunkirk in the other hand, isn't a melodical or orchestral score, the movie don't asked for something like Saving Private Ryan or The Thin Red Line. Other thing is: 'can you enjoy listen it?'

superultramegaa2020-10-12 20:59:23
"I disagree, all his other films with Nolan have beautiful melodic pieces, Dunkirk does not because that's what's best for the story."

Enough of this nonsense. Drones, sound design, and unmelodic music are not automatically "what's best for movie A". They're serviceable, and sometimes have a few elements of creativity, but ultimately they're done because the director wants the movie to be dark and intense, and that's the most obvious musical way they can illustrate this now.

Movies like Dunkirk have had beautiful, melodic music in the past. Saving Private Ryan is arguably just as dark and intense (if nothing else the Omaha Beach scene is), Schindler's List, even more so, and both have distinct, beautiful, and memorable scores.

If Nolan had made those movies, he would have wanted a sound design score just because that's the type of music he thinks is interesting for whatever reason. Doesn't mean he's right, and that's "what's best for that type of movie." It's just what he prefers.

Hybrid Soldier2020-10-12 21:42:17
So Batman Begins is not a melodic score.

I learnt something today, thank you !

Bob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is Balfe

Michael Baker2019-05-23 16:25:14
Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.

Mr.Unbreakable2019-05-23 22:44:24
Hybrid confirmed that training is composed by Ramin and Hans and it is obvious that Ramin's influence is superior to that of Hans.

Mr.Unbreakable2019-05-23 22:50:05
Lorne also confirmed that he took charge of Mr.Charles, and without saying that Lorne was on the good side of Score in general, so his influence was substantially high.

Edmund Meinerts2019-05-24 14:17:33
In what way is it "obvious", exactly, that Djawadi had more influence on that Training cue than Zimmer? It's basically just a statement of Zimmer's theme, and doesn't really sound notably "Djawadi-esque" to me in any way.

Christopher Nolan’s new film is an action spy film titled Tenet and apparently it is being scored by Ludwig Göransson.

It would be interesting to see what they come up with. But I am heartbroken that we will not be hearing a Nolan-Zimmer score.

https: // m-titled-tenet/

Joshua2019-05-22 18:49:51
Nobody ever believes me lol.

George2019-05-22 19:06:10
Very interesting. Wonder if anything happened between the two, or if Zimmer was even asked to do it?..

That being said, I’m not exactly by this news. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the Nolan/Zimmer collaborations, but part of me is excited for HZ to move beyond that relationship (for now) and pursue new projects and innovate film scoring even more.

I also partially blame Nolan (not sure whether I should or shouldn’t) for pushing Zimmer away from melodies and towards the atmosphere of and textural type of scoring.

mpolonest123 2019-05-22 19:07:20
I like Ludwig Göransson so this doesn’t bother me too much, I’m more concerned about Zimmer and Nolan’s relationship. I hope Dunkirk wasn’t THAT taxing on them.

Hybrid Soldier2019-05-22 19:09:03
You can't say I didn't warn you !

isildur2019-05-22 19:16:20
You did. But Hans-Nolan personal relationship is fine though, right?

Mephariel2019-05-22 19:56:19
I am actually very intrigue by this. When I heard that Zimmer may not be scoring it, Ludwig Göransson was my pick.

I honestly think Ludwig Göransson has a chance to be the future Zimmer.

Mephariel2019-05-22 20:00:44
I also wonder whether or not this is a fallout or is Zimmer too busy? Or a mixture of both? It could be a amicable separation and may not be permanent.

mpolonest123 2019-05-22 20:12:25
It’s hard to compare the two stylistically but I can definitely see Ludwig being on a similar level of fame down the line if he picks the right projects. Another excellent composer who is just as experimental as Zimmer is Daniel Pemberton.

It will be interesting to see if Zimmer sticks with Denis Villeneuve and/or scores any of Nolan’s future films, they are fairly similar directors in terms of approaching music in their films.

George2019-05-22 20:16:16
I can’t imagine this was a scheduling issue. He was on tour and made time for Dunkirk. And HZ always seemed to be on board so far in advance with the Nolan projects, so you’d presume he would’ve known about this project for awhile if he were doing it and would have blocked time off for it.

So maybe it was an either/or situation with Tenet or Dune, which would mean he CHOSE Dune over Tenet...

Who knows lol. I’m still building my excitement for Dark Phoenix next month, and then WW84, Top Gun, Dune, and even Spongebob. Lots of fun potential there!

challenge2019-05-22 20:19:45
So Dunkirk really was that awful an experience then? Wow.

Mephariel2019-05-22 20:37:09

I am not sure if I am sold on Daniel Pemberton. I still think his music never goes beyond sonic wallpaper most of the time.

Mephariel2019-05-22 20:41:02

Like I said in another forum, Nolan/Zimmer is one of my favorite collaborations, but if the choice is Zimmer scoring Tenet or Dune, I much rather he than score Dune.

I honestly probably rather he score Wonder Woman 1984 than Tenet, because Zimmer needs to do more fun films. But then maybe I am making too much assumptions about Tenet. A Nolan espionage movie sounds incredible, but it is probably a cold and dark film.

ThePhantasm2019-05-22 20:42:07
This is actually pretty shocking and completely unexpected. Even if he wasn’t gonna score it, I was a 100% sure it was gonna be Lorne Balfe. I’m not crazy about Ludwig so for the first time ever in a long time I’m not particularly excited about a Chris Nolan movie soundtrack. I wonder if it’s cause Zimmer is damn busy with concerts and movies, could sworn he’d go with someone from RCP

mpolonest123 2019-05-22 20:44:41
I can definitely see that, especially with King Arthur and Spiderverse. I do think his music adds a lot to the films he scores (Steve Jobs and Man From Uncle being two great examples) where he consistently switches up styles and tones to keep things fresh. Maybe not the strongest theme writer but I do love his approaches.

mpolonest123 2019-05-22 20:46:17
And if I’m completely honest, I’m more excited by WW84, Spongebob, Top Gun, and Dark Phoenix than another potential Nolan collab.

George2019-05-22 20:49:05
@mephariel @mpolonest123 - glad I’m not the only one who’s more excited for those compared to cold and dark Nolan/Zimmer scores. I’m kinda over those to be honest.

Mephariel2019-05-22 21:00:57

To be fair, Interstellar is a genuine masterpiece score and maybe one my favorite score of all time, but I am not sure when Nolan will allow Zimmer to return to that type of scoring.

Hell, Time is my favorite cue ever, but again, I am not sure if Nolan is interested in that kind of music anymore.

I guess we will see with Tenet. And yes, I absolutely think Göransson can be a future star in the making and if anyone is allow write his or her own "Time" cultural moment, it may as well be him.

George 2019-05-22 21:21:44
@Mephariel - you’re right. However Interstellar and Inception, musically speaking, are simple scores. They are moving, beautiful, and masterpieces, but still simple. Which is great!

But if we are wanting Zimmer to return to a type of music, I’d much rather prefer something along the lines of Pirates, The Rock, The Last Samurai, Crimson Tide, etc. Tonally, of course it would be more modern and new, but melodically a return to those forms would be a dream come true.

Ds2019-05-22 23:26:56
@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.

Miralsice2019-05-22 23:34:49
I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.

I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".

Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.

Mr.Unbreakable2019-05-23 02:44:42
I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.

Mephariel2019-05-23 04:12:54
Justin Hurwitz I can see. I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe.

I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.

Bob2019-05-23 08:54:24
I hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes. Just a few
Batman Begins-The Training
TDK- Joker crash the party, Gordon's speech and ending
Inception - Time, Mr.Charles,
TKDR - the climb, imagine the fire and orphan
Interstellar-Stay, Docking, coward, mountain
Dunkirk - well the entire movie

Mr.Unbreakable2019-05-23 15:50:41
I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great job

Apparently, the new Nolan film is a romantic thriller described as North by Northwest meets Inception. I can't even imagine how Hans' score would sound like. But I am so pumped for this score. Probably they'll go full orchestral with beautiful themes!?

https: //

mpolonest123 2019-03-06 00:02:05
Nolan has always been a pretty cerebral filmmaker, so seeing him do a romantic film in the vein of Hitchcock has me very excited. As for the music, I really would kill to hear Zimmer do an old fashioned “Bernard Hermann esque” type of score. I love Zimmer’s experimenting but it’s been a while since we’ve gotten a big orchestral score from him. Especially since he is capable of writing some beautiful love themes (think “Marry Me” or Pearl Harbor).

Mephariel2019-03-06 01:23:33
This sounds interesting as hell. I wonder what Zimmer will come up with.

With the complete cue sheet out now. Does anyone know what the chronological order of the album would be?

Mike2019-02-21 03:01:21
It's not really possible to chronologically order the album because the album doesn't use the same tracks as the movie. Plus, the album is more or less chronological anyway, given the areas where they are the same.

mpolonest123 2019-02-21 03:30:17
Comparing it to YFM’s sfx edit this is what I’ve got;

“The Mole” seems to be an alternate of the opening sequence. The first minute or so is used, while the rest isn’t. “We Need Our Army Back/Regimental Brothers” are both made up of several cues from different points in the film.
“Home” is completely different in the film, which makes me think it may have been recorded specifically for the album. Similar situation with “Oil”.
“Supermarine” is definitely a suite. The rest is chronological.

Interesting thing to note, it seems like a lot of the tempo changes/ticking effects/bass overlays were removed from the album release, making almost every track sound different from the actual film versions. The music in context has a constant pulse going, especially in the way cues segue into each other and change tempo.

Mike2019-02-21 04:52:38
I noticed that as well — the ticking goes all through the movie, except for the boat scenes, and only stops when they get on the train.

I wonder...could the film have originally been shot so that the beach, sea, and air sequences were there own arcs, and the longer album tracks were written for that? And then Nolan went in and turned the movie into the frenetic, constantly cutting-back-and-forth final product?

While the album is fine, I personally don't understand why we couldn't have just gotten the film cues. They might have had to stitch several together for each track, but it could have worked.

Ahmad2019-02-21 10:32:55
The Mole P1 (0-1:57)
Regimental Brothers P1 (0-1:19)
The Mole P2 (1:57-3:44)
Regimental Brothers P3 (2:44 onward)
We Need Our Army Back
Shivering Soldier
Supermarine P1 (0-2:47)
The Mole P3 (3:45 onward)
We Need Our Army Back (again)
Supermarine P2 (*5:33)
The Tide
The Oil
Variation 15
End Credits

As everyone said already, the album is made up of suites that combine several cues and several "sounds" used in various places. For example, the is a sound in The Mole (At 2:05) that sounds like a fuse being ignited. This sound is actually right after The Tide in the film.
The only tracks that are almost identical to the film are: The Tide, Variation 15 and End Credits, the rest is different.

So if you were to order the tracks as first heard in the film it would be:
The Mole
Regimental Brothers
We Need Our Army Back
Shivering Soldier
The Tide
The Oil
Variation 15
End credits

As much as I enjoyed listening to this release, I wish they didn't butcher the score the way they did. I like the suites but there are so many great cues in this film that weren't released. If only they released an isolated score track on Blu-ray. Listening to film extracts is just not enough.

mpolonest123 2019-02-21 14:10:39
Zimmer has said in interviews that he “mapped out” the film with one long piece of music to establish the changing tempo of the story, and apparently the script was written to capture the rhythmic feel of the film. So from the very beginning the story was always split up between the three.

I think a big part of the initial disappointment with the score was the album presentation, which gives off the impression that the music is just some sound design that Zimmer threw together (this is how I personally felt when I first gave it a listen). In actuality it’s a technically impressive score, I really can’t think of any other film score that is so synchronized with a film’s tempo and flows as one long piece of music. Apparently it was a nightmare for Hans, especially when the smallest edits to the film would ruin the flow.

Doing the 59-minute album was a pretty big disservice to the whole purpose of the music. If you remove one piece the whole thing falls apart, which is part of the reason the album feels so disjointed.

Mike2019-02-21 23:03:38
That's right, I forgot about that... And I totally agree about the score vs. the album. I had no use for this score on album at first, but now that I've watched the movie a few times, I can really hear the logic behind the score and I "get it."

I still don't get the music as heard on album, though. Are the longer pieces some early suites Hans wrote? Or did he specifically make these arrangements for the album? Do you know the answer to that one, Hybrid?

YFM2019-02-22 04:23:51
Most of the album is comprised of suites, with one consistent tempo per track.

The material that was scored to picture was scored using the risset rhythm technique, which gave a lot of those tracks their "infinitely getting faster" feeling in the film, so the tempo is always climbing in the film versions. The suites have a stable tempo (except for a couple normal tempo changes, which are different)

From a new French interview with HZ:

Q: Do you plan to work with Nolan on a next feature film?
A: No idea! I spoke to Chris a few months ago. I asked him how it was and he said, "I'm sitting in front of a blank page now." [Laughs] I understand that.

Kind of surprising, no? HZ is usually onboard so early when it comes to Nolan.

By the sounds of it, the film is in super early stages of production, so it makes some sense that HZ isn't in the project yet

Christopher Nolan announed his new project. Hope Hans is going to be at board. I anticipate anothrr masterpiece. :)

challenge2019-01-26 18:59:35
It'll be interesting to hear what experiment they come up with next. Interstellar was great. Dunkirk was interesting.

Wouldn't it be interesting if Nolan subverted expectations and challenged Hans to write proper, well-formed classical music. It'd be really interesting to hear the results.

Mephariel2019-01-27 02:52:36
How many movie is Zimmer going to score in 2020? He already has Wonder Woman 1984, SpongeBob, and Top Gun: Maverick. Now he is going to score Nolan's next film. That is like 4 films in within a 3-4 months span. Hopefully he won't spread his ideas too thin.

Knight2019-01-27 03:01:54
I expect a lot of work for Mazzaro and Kawczynski in the coming years xD

isildur2019-01-27 09:10:57
Hans is scoring SpongeBob movie? When did this news come out? I think Hans is finished scoring WW1984 movie already.

Mephariel2019-01-28 00:23:46
Maybe Hybrid can confirm, but I highly doubt Zimmer is finished with WW1984 already. He is still working on The Lion King and I am not sure if he finished Dark Phoenix yet. Where will he find time to do WW1984? Besides, WW didn't finished production until December of last year. That means they are still editing the movie.

And yes, he is doing the next SpongeBob movie. It was announced last year.

java2019-01-29 08:22:13
what event film it's gonna be? Inception

Scorefan2019-01-30 00:16:14
Hans is working on The Lion King. The Dark Phoenix is completed even with the reshoots to this year. Next Year WW84, so he has enough time.

Mephariel2019-01-30 05:47:05
He will probably finish WW1984 by fall of this year. I think he won't do much on Top Gun. Harold Faltermeyer will do most of the work. That leaves Spongebob and maybe his team can do most of the work as well. So he will spend most of winter and next year on Nolan's project. That is what I am thinking.

Ian2019-01-31 07:44:51
Damn, seeing how many projects Hans has lined up honestly makes me worry that we'll be getting a ton of recycled/generic/minimalist/ambient/ghostwritten stuff rather than authentic, compelling Zimmer. I do hope I'm wrong, though!

mpolonest123 2019-01-31 13:06:07
I wouldn’t worry. Just look at 2013. We had MOS, The Lone Ranger, 12 Years A Slave, Rush, and Mr. Morgan’s Last Love. Pretty strong/diverse lineup if you ask me.

Ds2019-02-02 11:48:32
@mpolonest: so in fact in 2013 the only real Zimmer scores we had were Man Of Steel and Rush.
Most of The Lone Ranger was done by the additional composers (Geoff mainly). And so was Mr Morgan's Last Love, if I remember well.
12 Years A Slave is a lazy piece of rehashing that cannot be given as an example of anything good.

So that's exactly the kind of concerns Ian was talking about :-p

mpolonest123 2019-02-02 13:30:38
Yeah, I probably shouldn’t have included 12yas lol...

But even The Lone Ranger, despite being heavily influenced by other sources and having the ghostwriters, is still a pretty fun score that does have Zimmer’s stamp on it. I would take that over “Widows” any day...

Mike2019-02-02 20:45:59
I think we can count The Lone Ranger as a real Zimmer score. As far as we know, he did the suites (Absurdity, Silver, Home), and the whole score sounds like him throughout. True, he didn't like working on the movie, which he admitted, but I definitely think it's "his" score as much as any other score post-2005.

Zanelli was working on Finale before Zimmer wrote anything, but even there, he couldn't finish the cue until Zimmer came in to write stuff.

Ds2019-02-02 22:11:05
Don’t get me wrong on The Lone Ranger, I like this score (and LOVE that movie), but to me it sounds like HZ did this quickly to help a friend, but didn’t put a lot of heart or ideas in it. Absurdity is a fun suite but it’s little more than another spin on 160BPM. Silver is lovely but heavily lifted from some source music (can’t remember which one). And Home is just like this Solomon theme from 12yas.

A fun and enjoyable score, free from any « concept » or « experiment », which felt fresh, but ultimately didn’t really bring anything we hadn’t heard before. Except the astonishing work on William Tell, of course!

i love this score so much. this comment is for Hans and team again for making such an amazing score. if they ever read what we write here lol : )

so, i am not a movie goer and many people claim and say that scores are to serve movies, and so and forth. well, i finally watched Dunkirk and it is an excellent movie. the movie did not do justice to the score imo.

here's an example. "Variation 15" on Nimrod is the "soothing" track for me in the whole score. much more soothing than "Home". i can play it in a loop. it surprised me that the cut gave it only a mere few seconds in the movie. now, i only watched Dunkirk once but i am pretty sure it played once, and for a few seconds, while "Bane" was in the plane.

another fact is that i always felt like being in a war plane when listening to "Supermarine". not an helicopter but more like a fast moving plane. that was before watching the movie and i never read about the movie. i knew it was about war and the only war machine i could think of was that. the fact that i was able to match the music with my own images says how great Hans and team were on that.

the constant tension felt in the "Mole", "Supermarine", etc. is more intense in the movie though. i liked that.

also, i watched the movie credits to the very end. i wanted to see if they would match it with the track. they did, and it ends exactly with the starting point as i expected. for me it was a cue that "the war didn't end there". sad, yes, but the effect was on point.

so okay, i am minority here in saying that a score album put together is its own thing. doesn't need a movie to exist. great movie. great score. both in their own rights!

Captain Philips has similar portions

Mike (OTM)2018-06-27 16:00:45
Yeah, Captain Phillips is the closest thing I can think of to Dunkirk... And Hans did writing on it, coincidentally.

Ds2018-06-27 22:15:28
When I was watching A Quiet Place there were quite a few moments where I thought the score was kind of similar to Dunkirk, mostly in the suspense cues. Never relistened to it though, so maybe it was just an impression.

nvictor2018-06-28 19:46:09
thanks all

Koly2018-06-28 22:15:09
Gravity IMHO

nvictor2018-07-17 23:08:36
finally got to listen to a quiet place. it has indeed the atmospheric vibe i got from dunkirk. although i will give it another listen before deciding. anyways, you have great ears Ds. and you said you listened to the background music during the movie even, wow!

after that i got to listen to 3:10 to yuma, which went straight onto my wishlist. and made me research Marco Beltrami. no idea how i never heard from his scores till now! he is very amazing on those two scores i have listened to so far.

now, i realized that (most) horror movies might have that atmospheric/ambient sound. so i wondered what makes dunkirk special? pretty sure it is that tension that never seems to fade (not the nimrod theme though). most horror movies are to scare you at particular moments. dunkirk keeps the tension constant. so much that you get comfortable with it. that's what makes it so special for me.

will keep looking. oh i tried captain philips and gravity too. will give those another listen.

Ds2018-07-18 10:58:28
mvictor: it's funny, 3:10 To Yuma is perhaps the only Beltrami score I really like :-p

In my opinion, what made Dunkirk special is that it's a Zimmer score, so it sounds better, massive, impressive, while most horror scores stay in the background except for a few jump scares that are not pleasing at all when you listen to the album. Dunkirk is a tension-builder, but it's more than that.

You should definitely listen to Gravity a couple more times, it's an absolutely amazing score, in my opinion better than Dunkirk, as it's equally tense and massive, but has more refined electronic manipulation, it's more colorful and it's simply more musical. Go straight to the track 'Shenzou', play it very loud, and you'll see what I mean :-p

nvictor2018-07-24 18:27:56
alright, will give Gravity another try

i had 3.10 to Yuma in a loop for days now. the theme is stuck in my head. can't get it out. and today i tried logan. it got me immediately. give it a try if you haven't.

what got me is the blend of a real grand piano and a real drumset with the orchestra. i have not heard it done so well. Marco Beltrami is now a definite favorite and i am only the 3rd soundtrack

mpolonest123 2018-07-24 19:38:39
Marco Beltrami is a solid composer who seems to get pigeonholed in horror most of the time.

I would definitely recommend I Robot, Soul Surfer, SnowPiercer, Scream, and Logan if you want a good variety of his style.

Mephariel2018-07-24 22:53:20
I absolutely hate Beltrami's writing. He doesn't have the melodic prowess of the elites and sucks at writing virtually any underscore or suspense music.

I can't believe he made Soul Surfer because that score is so good, I keep thinking Horner wrote it.

Edmund Meinerts2018-07-25 11:09:05
Beltrami's not that great melodically but I think he's a more than solid action/suspense composer. I particularly love his Die Hard scores for that, as well as I, Robot, Hellboy, Seventh Son and Gods of Egypt. And he's also pretty good at coming up with unusual and creative textures and orchestrations. But a lot of his albums end up being slogs, and the quality seems to vary a lot from project to project.

He's a mixed bag of a composer but not remotely deserving of the hate I sometimes see him get from people like Mephariel, Ds or Macejko.

Ds2018-07-25 19:43:14
Lol since when am I a hater? :-o

If anything, Beltrami is in my "I don't care" zone. I remain fully open-minded if I watch a movie scored by him, but I confess I don't pursue his projects in the same way I'm doing my best to watch any movie scored by major RCP composers :-)

nvictor2018-07-25 20:18:27
come one guys, you always want to turn everything into a debate. thanks again, Ds, for making me discover Marco Beltrami.

also can we post youtube links here? here's logan main title, such a great track

Edmund Meinerts2018-07-26 00:33:12
"you always want to turn everything into a debate"...uh, my bad? Didn't realize that wasn't what this comment section was for. Must have missed the memo.

Ds - sorry, could've sworn I had seen disparaging comments about Beltrami from you at some point. Like I said, he gets a weird amount of hate around here, maybe I confused you for someone else...

In the Hans Zimmer Roundtable by Spitfire Audio on YouTube. Well worth the watch by the way.

Joshua2018-05-10 23:18:33
I was looking through all the releases from now till the end of the year trying to think of possible films it could be. Do we know the story with Disney's Christopher Robin? I remember reading Klaus was gonna do it. But then when Johann passed, it was revealed he was actually scoring it. So does that mean Klaus is back in or is there someone new? I could see Hans and Ben doing this film.

George2018-05-11 01:00:16
I've done the same, Joshua, and honestly I have no idea what film it could be. I'm hoping it's at least something with strong themes with a strong Zimmer stamp on it... its been awhile since we've had one of those.

Mephariel2018-05-11 17:18:30
Major 2018 films with no composers announced

Alpha, Escape Room, Mortal Engines

Not a lot of choices. I would love to see Zimmer score something like Moral Engines. Or course, it could be a small film we don't know about. More likely, he is doing a replacement score.

lol2018-05-11 21:29:58
It's called sherlock Holmes 3

mpolonest123 2018-05-11 22:21:49
Apparently the animated Spider-Man movie coming from Sony has no one attached yet as a composer. Imagine Zimmer returning to that universe? And he has a relationship with Sony already so it’s not too unlikely.

Mephariel2018-05-11 22:48:52
Possible. But they either didn't ask him to do Venom. Either that or he decline to do that film. I feel like Zimmer is too picky now to do something like Spider-Man.

Max Potcats2018-05-11 23:51:58
No more "dumb blockbusters" for Hans now, so I don't see him scoring Venom.
On Sherlock 3 if Guy Ritchie is call to direct it I don't see why HZ wouldn't make it, he had some issues with the producer on SH1 but I guess it's over now..
In the "worst" scenario Pemberton on Sherlock would be great, as for King Arthur.

Ludwig Goransson from Black Panther is attached to Venom for now. Besides Dark Phoenix, and hopefully Sherlock 3, doubt he'll make another big one until Nolan makes another film

Mephariel2018-05-11 17:09:01
While that is highly unlikely, I think Zimmer moving into Marvel films is a good idea. I think the terrible quality of DC films really affected Zimmer's scoring. Dark Phoenix is a nice start.

With that said, Zimmer doesn't seem like he wants to score conventional superhero movies. Dark Phoenix is more like a drama than a superhero film from what I read.

This may have been brought up before, but... why exactly did Hans need Ben Wallfisch for Variation 15? It's hardly that much different than the original, and besides, the most memorable part of it that's not the original is the string-brass crescendo at the end. And that was obviously Hans.

So what did Wallfisch do? Honest question.

it didn't give me super composer powers lol but you should give it a chance. the community is building up it seems. they have the advantage of talking directly (or having questions sent) to Hans.

anyway, i am a bigger fan of what Junkie is doing for free on youtube. it's way less abstract than what Hans told us. for example Hans explained to us to write to the picture, the director is your metronome and such... it wasn't until Junkie explained that he can't show us any cuts from tomb raider it finally made sense.

I've been on the more negative side of reactions to this score, but does anyone else find the "Shivering Soldier" cue just kind of captivating? It's an extremely simple piece, yet — as simple Hans cues often do — it just kind of manages to pull you in and make you feel exactly what Cillian Murphy's character is feeling. Maybe it's the drone underneath everything. I don't know. It's certainly not a masterpiece, but unlike some parts of the score (IMO), it really works exactly like it's meant to.

badbu2018-03-08 07:38:52
yep! it's an amazing cue! the complete score is a masterpiece for me.
