Because if the film is an american production, it has no choice but be recorded in the US... That's the rule...<br><br>When the film is a UK co-production, and/or partly shot in the UK etc... (like, for instance, every Nolan film, or King Arthur), it can be recorded in the UK... That's why it's way easier to get an expanded set of The Dark Knight or Interstellar than... the POTC saga...<br><br>I remember the AFM (American Federation of Musicians) wasn't pleased when Interstellar got recorded at Air Studios in London, claiming it had to be US Recorded... But Nolan's a brit, Syncopy is a British operation based in London...> You gotta realize one thing, this score is US recorded so every new 15 min of score you release, you gotta pay back reuse fees. So it's very complicated & costy and that's why they released "only" 15 min of extra score.<br><br>> If it was recorded in the UK, they could have released 2 hours of bonus tracks it wouldn't have cost anything more... :)<br><br>Wow, I didn't know that. So, why not record every movie in the UK/Europe then? Not sure how long it will take but I think this re-use fee will drop once they record every score outside the US.<br>However, how much money did the movie make in the Boxoffice and Home Entertainment? I'm sure that money can't be an issue here.<br><br>How cool would it be to officially buy the sessions in a collectors box (in general for all movies), signed by the composer and director and maybe cast members... I'm sure that could be sold for $200+. The studios are wasting an opportunity here... Sure, you can copy music but you can't copy the signatures.That's exactley what I thought.<br><br>There was one other thing I thought was great.<br><br>I went with my parents, who have heard Zimmer's music, from when I'm listening to it, but they said to me that you can hear, that it's him, without even knowing all of his music.<br>They said, the thematic content, the bombast of it, it is just pure Zimmer.<br><br>Hope Spongebob & Wonder Woman 1984 are with a large orchestral/choir ensemble, and with WW1984 some 80's synths!!Having seen it, the biggest thing I realized was that I missed this kind of scoring in movies. When the HZ of the 90s-2000s left in favor of experiments, it seems no one replaced him, so this area of "big sounding scores with instantly memorable and beautiful themes" has just been abandoned. Hopefully seeing/hearing this version of The Lion King now will give some ideas to executives/directors regarding musical choices!No GITS cannot be released, it's technically not possible... That's why Lorne leaked his part of the score himself...
This is great news.Maybe Balfe’s scores to Ghost in the Shell now can get released.<br>Over 6000 people have signed the petition for Ghost.yea, that should be enough for meIt's comforting to get a reconfirmation that it's coming. <br>Now we'll just have to cross our fingers that the process doesn't take months like that one other release ;) <br><br>Which one will be out first: End Credits or X-Periments? :Pyes!yes!yes!<br>i can't wait!!!!!!!And I can tell you Hans brought the matter to the very head of Disney Music... Everyone seems game to release it, just need to work out some technicalities...
He mentions the Dark Phoenix second CD here. 20:33 onwards.<br><br>https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=mHmKZbUZiIA<br><br>"I did a film recently that got away, but we wrote 16 hours of music. We're actually fighting to get another CD released because the film didn't do anything, just to have it out there. Because you can't use again in something else, so it'd be nice to have it out there. So that it doesn't disappear into a rubbish bin".Life's Not Fair first part is similar > Tears of the Sun - Yekeleni Part 1 lolAny idea on the name of the song from the trailer?Honestly the biggest problem with this new version for me is the lack of new variants of the themes. They mostly just repeat verbatim Hans' original ideas with little to no innovation or changes made most of the time. <br><br>It also doesn't help that cues that did have wonderful variations such as "Nala Attacks", and "Nala & Simba" have been shortened to mostly cut them out. The worst cut being  for the ending to "Mufasa's Ghost" which originally peaked the emotion with that lovely variation of Simba/The One True King theme transitioning into the Pride Rock theme, all of which is absent now.The comic con trailer for Season 3 looks excellent.<br><br>Really looking forward to next season & score.<br><br>I saw some early 1900 world. (One of the other parks?) Hope Djawadi does something cool with that.<br><br>Very excited

Main Theme (2:20)<br><br>Hybrid this score is good?It's indeed a shame so much mhsic is missing from the official album.<br><br>Love to hear more!how about credits for the LLL set then?I'm just curious why there's so much dead air in the FYC tracks. Cues like "Shut it Down", "Burton Visits Prime Minister", or "Megatron has Squeeks" just have nothing to them! <br><br>No themes to speak of besides one horn blast of "Quintessa", no interesting melodies, or rhythm, just dead electronics and weak-feeling drums and strings which really doesn't fit in with the series' style. Not even the fourth movies'.Thanks Hybrid for explaining that. Makes more sense now.

Why this year hans zimmer dosent compose music for a great or box office hit movie ? I think before lion king we wont have any great composition from him. I really miss 2013 all the projects were cool like MOS , rush , lone ranger or even the bible.


Mephariel2018-06-27 22:48:09
He has at least two blockbuster potential films next year:

Dark Phoenix
The Lion King



Iamtommie2018-06-28 00:06:38
I'm sorry, but since when do only great of box offixe hit movies have good compositions in there scores?

He's doing Widows this year. Who knows what a surprise that might be??!!


David2018-06-28 12:00:10
Tommie , without a doubt most ( not all of them ) ot the hans zimmer great composition belong to blockbusters movies , such as christopher nolan movies , Gladiator , POTC Series , Lion king and etc. widows as you said i think the same faith of 12 years a slave will be happening for it. In 12 years a slave we just have one 3 minutes tracke name solomon which was the main theme. I really miss emotional scores such as last samurai , Epic scores like Gladiator , Dark knight trilogy , MOS and rush. These kind of scores needs epic scenes with graet budget and creative directors like nolan and howard. ( i truely like steve McQueen and appreciate his works but not a huge fan ). Another example of huge budget and hit movies have great score ( Most of the time ) is infinity war. Alan Silvestri Score is amazing for this bluckboster movie. Just listen to the track name “ Forge “ it is amazing. And as i said most of the times ( like 90%) high grossing movies and box office hites have Fantastic scores. Thank you


Mephariel2018-06-28 17:18:34
I have to disagree with Infinity War. I think that is one of the more average Silvestri scores. Too slow and dull at the beginning and the action cues are good but not great. Compared to his other action film scores like The Mummy Returns and Predator, Infinity War is a downer,


MrZimmerFan2018-06-28 17:43:25
Infinity War was good, but not near from Ready Player One.


mr2018-09-30 07:00:56
I dont even how can people consider infinity war as a great film and that too with good score. that kinda score is even worse than the worst of zimmer.


Edmund Meinerts2018-09-30 10:50:33
What are you talking about, the Infinity War score is perfectly fine


Meta2018-09-30 13:13:11
Well, Im only agreeing with the Zimmer fan because to be honest I never saw Silvestri's scores to be fitting with the movies...Infinity War only really has one theme, and it's just Thanos theme which you cant really do much with - or Silvestri had no reason to develop much outside the slow progression and the end titles, which used some kind of tempo, but little else. The score wasn't very punchy or catchy, let's say.

Honestly I preferred Jackman or someone from RC.


superultramegaa2018-09-30 14:07:30
While I haven't paid much attention to his action scores, Back To The Future, Stuart Little, and Polar Express prove to me Silvestri is capable of making amazing and iconic work. The problem is recently, he's kinda become part of the group of composers so desperate for melody, that they end up making little more than complex orchestral noise. I didn't even finish Ready Player One because I just couldn't grasp any of the themes, and frankly wasn't interested in doing so.


MrZimmerFan2018-09-30 14:56:08
And Predator, The Abyss or What Lies Beneath?

That are terrific scores by Silvestri

I really hope they release the documentary score and not only this song which sounds pretty by the books.


Mephariel2018-06-27 17:54:51
I don't think they will because I skimmed through the documentary and I don't think there is enough music in there to justify a release.


...2018-06-27 19:39:04
Is the music any good?

Max Potcats reply Replies: 0 || 2018-06-27 13:28:31
Maybe I deserve to die but I really don't like this music. It just sound to similar to all the "guitar / feel good" radio songs shit, and, seriously, do you ear something that sound like Zimmer in there? But it's nice to know that he scores the documentary.

Mephariel reply Replies: 1 || 2018-06-27 03:25:17
Does Zimmer still have time to score another movie in 2018? It is highly unusual that he only has one film score in a year, but I can't see what it could be.


Josiah2018-06-27 07:26:43
I believe Hans Zimmer is kind of taking a bit of a break from scoring. If I am not mistaken I think I heard him say that in his interviews.

Jack Afrogarrix 2018 reply Replies: 0 || 2018-06-26 02:47:08
Well, that not a 100% sure, but if he Release the score at interscope records with the original song with dan reynolds(Imagine Dragons). But we had to wait what happens.

Jack Afrogarrix 2018 reply Replies: 2 || 2018-06-23 02:59:50
Nice new song from hans zimmer & the frontman imagine Dragons Dan Reynolds. I got a question just to know if hans zimmer will make a score for this documental hbo movie including the song with dan Reynolds?

Mephariel2018-06-23 20:48:44
He scored the documentary. The question is, are they going to release the whole score.


Josiah2018-06-25 03:29:18
Something tells me they're not going to.
