Ds, am I reading that correctly that you're using the fact that JJ works with Giacchino as evidence that the score might *not* be melodic or thematic? Because say what you want about Giacchino (and I'm far from his biggest fan either), it's an objective fact that he writes film music that is almost exclusively thematic/melodic. Whether you like those themes and melodies is another question, but they are undeniably themes and melodies.Yeah, totally agree IMO Mad Max is over rated, this is JunkieXL's best score as a solo outing, especially Tom's Sketchbook is so awesome & Batman v Superman is a perfect score in itself but yeah some pieces will fit perfectly. On another note Justice League (2017) could've benefited from Tom's presence but the movie failed from every point of view.Now released: http:/ /filmmusicreporter.com/2018/04/19/soundtrack-album-for-sky-h unter-to-be-released/<br><br>https: //www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C26S729/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_ tl?ie=UTF8&tag=filmusrep-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creat iveASIN=B07C26S729&linkId=18cb85bfc0aaee3094cdba507fe05649I hope Balfe delivers but he has not done a score that I really listen to more than once so I hope this will be it.I agree with Edmund for the most part, except that JJ Abrams usually works with Giacchino, and Cruise's recent productions include Jack Reacher 2 and Edge of Tomorrow. So I wouldnt exactly take a melodic or thematic score for granted...<br>That being said, at this point I expect something like Penguins, but I secretely hope for something really amazing and surprising that would explain why McQuarrie broke up with Kraemer.

@Hybrid, can you confirm Lorne is scoring MI6?I feel like the only way I could be excited about this would be if they adopted the sound of M:I-2, which I find very unlikely. Primarily because the sound is very dated, but also because Fallout is likely to be a more serious movie than II ever will be. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic, especially if it was true that he did the trailer music.<br><br>And it was Rogue Nation that Kraemer worked on, not Ghost Protocol.It's sort of been implied here before that Lorne Balfe worked on the "Bumblebee" suite... Is that correct (as far as anybody knows, at least)?Both scores are absolutely masterpieces, personally I prefer the second one. Outstanding. <br>This story deserves a perfect close also musically.I think we may be surprised with this one, guys. Tom Cruise and JJ Abrams both are into melodic sounding scores, amd when Lorne is allowed to go all out melodic on us he creates perfection (ie: LEGO Batman, Home, parts of Geostorm, his contributions to kung fu panda and Sherlock)... I do hope he has somewhat of a throwback sound from it, but I also want that signature RCP sound too! Not gonna lie this is good news for me.
I'm sure the Balfe brigade will still find some way to tar and feather me for this, but I think he could do a decent job here. After all, you can't just write a generic action score for Mission Impossible. It has to have that throwback espionage feel, the suaveness, the sense of cool, and I think Balfe will do okay with that - look at Penguins of Madagascar. I just hope he gets to use a real orchestra for once (no excuse not to on a film of this type and size), and that he doesn't ignore Lalo Schifrin's theme.<br><br>I'd still rather have had Kraemer back considering the excellent job he did on Ghost Protocol (and the fact he never gets any assignments otherwise) but Balfe could do well here.Damn I was hoping Zimmer, Giacchino or Kraemer would do this.Ha ha! Yes again and again ! This is excellent newsNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not Balfe again and again and again :(Hey, everybody!<br>Did you hear the news?<br>Check this out:<br>https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=962210980613161& id=138474459653488

I'll never forget how thrilling it was when I watched Interstellar, once the cd was released after the movie, because Hans and Nolan wanted us to feel the images and sound together. I'll do the same with Dunkirk and all further movies with these amazing director and composer.


Mephariel2017-06-27 08:48:33
Yeah, I don't think I can help it, but I really want to watch the movie first before listening to the score.

With Interstellar, it was a magical experience, especially when Cornfield Chase was playing and No Time for Caution melding perfectly with the docking scene.


Waymann2017-06-27 09:25:38
I always like hearing a score first before I go in. Especially with a film like this. When I haven't heard the score first I pay too much attention to the music so I can take everything in but then I stop using attention to the movie itself. But in case with Dunkirk the movie comes out few day before the score gets released in my country.

Waymann2017-06-23 15:54:26
Great, another soundtrack we can wait for to get the complete score.


Kalman2017-06-23 15:58:55
I wonder if there will be a special edition too. The latest albums from Hans that came out on the WaterTower label all had a special edition release as well.

I don't know if I should pre-order it or wait a couple weeks to see whether a double CD edition will follow. Would be good to know...


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-23 16:02:48
There won't be a 2 CD.

Anyway the film is pretty short, 1h45, so I guess Hans everything he needed in this release.


Medigo2017-06-23 16:07:11
Lets pray for the FYC to be huge like it was for Interstellar


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-23 16:13:37
Well I hope Hans "could" credit everybody and disqualify himself from the "FYC" award races like he loves to... But not easy with a Nolan movie !


Iamtommie2017-06-23 16:46:03
Why does evrybody assume that the album will be short. Mayne the ttack lengths are 10 or maybe 16 minutes long. He's done it before on Crimson Tide. This had 5 tracks and an hour of playtime.
So who knows. Mayne it's a score more than 1 hour.


Kalman2017-06-23 17:30:50
Thanks for the info, Hybrid! Anyway, it's really strange that a war epic is maybe Nolan's shortest film so far. He barely seems to be able to make a movie under 140 minutes.


Mephariel2017-06-23 18:34:06
I suspect this film is all about intensity. I think none of the characters will get an introduction. The movie will just start in the middle of the war.


sverige19772017-06-24 19:43:15
Is Dunkirk also released on vinyl?


isildur2017-06-24 20:49:27
@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.


isildur2017-06-24 20:55:46
Hybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?

It will be interesting to hear what the score will sound like since Mazzaro and Kawczynski is on the team. Hope it will be heavy on the electronics and sound like Chappie :D


Iamtommie2017-06-23 14:47:50
I hope it's going to be something in between 'Inception' & 'Interstellar'. I hope there are not as much electronics as in Chappie.


Andres2017-06-23 15:05:11
That's what worries me . Having them in it doesn't excite me. I am excited though to see Balfe back working with Zimmer and Nolan.


Alexander2017-06-23 15:16:43
I hope that Hans will punch out his next big thing with Dunkirk and I hope that they will not use electronics that much. It is a Hans Zimmer score so for sure there will be electronics but I hope on something that sounds like "Journey to the line" or inception for sure. You know what would be cool ?! To hear something that sounds like the live version on "Journey to the line" for sure another melody but something that is as mighty as the live version. I really like the drums in it at the end they put much more pressure in it and make it sound heavier. I don't mean the drum solo at the end but the part before that when the main melody kicks in.


...2017-06-23 15:38:57
I hope Hans does something inventive and interesting with the orchestra and not just relies on electronics! The best zimmer scores are in my opinion where the orchestra does the heavy lifting and not the synths!

The fact that Nolan said throw out the percussion and string ostinatos when they did Interstellar is a good sign and I hope Dunkirk won't go back to that style!

Hey Hybrid, was listening to the "HZ's Obsession" on your youtube channel. Real nice spotting dude.


Hybrid Soldier2017-06-04 22:43:42
;)

Hans once said it was a mix between Dies Irae and a German nursery rhyme...

For sure it has haunted him somehow for many years ! lol


isildur2017-06-04 23:14:54
Wow! No wonder all those tracks are amazing. Dies Irae inspiring also makes sense since all those movies somehow deal with the concept of death.


Vivien2017-06-05 00:21:25
I love this melody since I heard it in Angels and Demons !


mpolonest123 2017-06-05 01:42:19
Funnily enough this has always been one of my favorite melodies throughout HZ's career, particularly the "dancing string" variation from Hannibal.

Would Lois's theme from MoS and the Oscorp motif from ASM2 also count as this?


mpolonest123 2017-06-05 01:48:59
And for that matter, the "Woad" theme at 5:50 in Woad to Ruin definitely uses the riff.

Great video Hybrid btw!


Agustin2017-06-07 00:32:28
In the road to el Dorado there are some epic versions of this motiff, with chours and stuff.

I had never noticed it was also in interstellar until now. I think, at this point, it's like the wilhelm scream of Hans music, it has to be in every soundtrack.

Two days ago, we did an interview with Hans in Prague and he said, that Dunkirk was the most demanding score he has ever worked on! :) So, I guess we have something to be looking for!!

There's no kill like overkill. Plus another thing that'll sound good for the inevitable Hans/Nolan PR train I guess. *shrug*

Mephariel reply Replies: 17 || 2017-05-05 23:45:30
Excited for this!

Hybrid, is the music from the newest trailer actually from the score?

Also, is this a solo effort from Hans Zimmer?


Mike (OTM)2017-05-06 15:10:53
Same question about "solo Zimmer" - Interstellar felt really special for that. :) I'm expecting Steve Mazzaro in some capacity, though.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-06 15:41:04
I know who worked on it but I'm waiting for the "official" credits before dropping everything, it was not an easy journey (but it rarely is !) !


Joshua2017-05-07 20:56:45
Hybrid, you saying that this was not an easy journey really is interesting. I was thinking about this about a week ago when I read an interview with Zimmer, and he said he was having to finish cues for Dunkirk on the tour bus between shows! And it just struck me as odd because in the past Zimmer and Nolan seem to wrap post fairly early on. With it being 2 months from the release and Zimmer is still working on it seemed strange. Very interested to hear what happened here.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-07 21:02:25
And Hans still has a faithful lieutenant working on it on site while he's touring ! Not unknown to Nolan ! ;)


Joshua2017-05-07 21:33:32
Wow, and the plot thickens lol.


Mephariel2017-05-07 22:18:11
Hybrid, is this is synth score primarily or are there going to be orchestrated sections?

Looking back, I think maybe he took on too many projects last year. He started Dunkirk in January 2016 right? In between then and now, he was involved in The Crown, Planet Earth II, Hidden Figures, The Boss Baby while having 2 months off on tour.



Ahmad2017-05-07 23:37:45
Zoe Zimmer (Hans' daughter) shared a photo and a video of Hans and Chris in a studio recording a brass section. I hope that answers your question.


Edmund Meinerts2017-05-08 01:53:30
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that none of those four projects you listed there, Mephariel, were exactly hands-on ones for Hans... ;)


Joshua2017-05-08 20:14:22
Yeah, Hans and Nolan's relationship has been super experimental since the beginning. Nolan encourages it, so I doubt Nolan would be the cause of the headaches (though i could be wrong). But to me this reeks of studio interference.


Joshua2017-05-08 20:15:43
And yeah, I doubt it has anything to do with Hans' other projects he had last year. His role in those seemed minimal.


Mike (OTM)2017-05-08 20:38:00
Alright, so this one is definitely a co-score, then. D'you think the other guy working on it will get front cover credit, or no? You can never tell with Zimmer's projects. Seems to be that credits depend on a whim. Ha.


Joshua2017-05-08 21:17:36
God how awesome would it be if it was James Newton Howard again. (Wishful thinking...)


Mike (OTM)2017-05-08 23:33:51
Well, JNH did work on Hans Zimmer Live recently and posted a FB video about it. Maybe there's more to this than we've been told! ;)

Sadly, though, the realistic side of me doubts it.


Hybrid Soldier2017-05-08 23:49:02
I talked with James there ! (I'm even on that video at some point ! lol ;))

And no he's quite busy with his own stuff !


Joshua2017-05-09 00:44:19
Well we know it cant be Steve because he's on the road with Zimmer. My money is on Lorne ;)


isildur2017-05-09 07:31:15
"Not unknown to Nolan!" Well, it's obviously Lorne. He did work extensively on Inception. So, no worries. Lorne knows what to do.


isildur2017-05-21 15:12:36
Told ya! Now, officially it's Lorne.

Joseph Solano reply Replies: 18 || 2017-05-10 03:45:37
This score in my mind will be a masterpiece. I can't explain why, I just do. I wonder how similar or disimilar to The Thin Red Line.


Kalman2017-05-10 12:28:18
I really hope you're right because what I heard in the latest trailer didn't convince me at all. I hope it was not from Hans' score (can anyone confirm it is from the actual score or not?) Or, at least, that the score itself will be much, much better.


JBSO992017-05-10 17:07:41
Well, the music from the trailers, if it's from the composer of the film, generally is music for making the trailer look awesome and they use cheap composing ways to create this, but the score it's usually by far better than the trailer music.
And it's Zimmer with Nolan, nothing bad can come from this two working together!


TomMuso2017-05-10 19:54:25
Remember when Balfe did he trailer for Inception and that included Hans music in it .


no2017-05-10 22:24:31
Lorne didn't compose from Dunkirk.
He said official Facebook page.

Probably is Balfe. He is scoring something for Warner. Source: facebook.

Joseph Solano2017-05-14 01:32:01
@JBS099 The music from the teaser might be because it sounds a lot like Winter Soldier.

Hybrid Soldier2017-05-13 23:35:47
I don't think so, Hans was on it for a year and a half. Lorne's been there for a couple of months, Andrew probably more. I think they're FINALLY done by now (about time !!! lol) !

It isn't too soon for this? Well I don't mind. I would love to hear it as soon as possible but until the movie, probably we won't get to hear anything. The music from the trailers is from Zimmer?
