Yep, 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 music
If 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.Ridley Scott is going to film the movie "Kitbag" which shows the rise and fall of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Emperor of the French. Napoleon will be played by no other then Joaquin Phoenix.<br><br>Immediatly i've started to dream, that Hans would complete this dream-team and to score the movie. Any chances here that Hans could be a candidate?

Not only is the album fun as a concept album, it's a surprisingly good score to picture. The themes are really clear for each of the characters and the music really fits the action. Even though the action is kind of corny. Real underrated gem.

I finally watched the film and even though it's a sort of 5 or 6 out of 10 average/okay movie, it reminded me just how much personality gets injected when Hans Zimmer does the score. He really has a strong voice.

nvictor reply Replies: 5 || 2020-09-22 11:41:05
what an incredible album! it is getting very close to my personal favorite which is dunkirk. there is so much mastery in both. one thing that dunkirk has that this album doesn't have is a sense of repetition. both albums have some kind of non-finality. with dunkirk, i feel transported back to the beginning. with this one, i am not sure what comes next.

Hans and team probably have their share of anecdotes but here's another one.

i was playing this one day and my friend's daughter asked me if this was from... she hesitated and asked: the dark phoenix movie? i was astonished. she is 12 and probably not into movie scores. but she was able to pinpoint the right movie from a random part. that's something many aspire to. especially with the millions of super heroes movies out there!

i told her how impressed i was and went on unleashing my Hans Zimmer collection onto her haha :)

Chaval :)2020-09-24 05:26:26
That's great. I personally like Dark Phoenix more than dunkirk, I feel pretty good visiting Xperiments.

The funny thing (and I can identify with your anecdote), is that every time I do homework with my son, I put music on him (not just Hans), but he also gets to recognize just by listening to a fragment or the main theme, a example is le petit prince, the lion king and the hobbit., among others recognizes them. He's only 4 years old and I'm funny because he asks me for music to do his battles.
quite an experience haha

MrZimmerFan2020-09-24 12:07:50
Dark Phoneix is more playable than Dunkirk, more thematic in my opinion, and don't agree with that opinions saying are the same, specially when Dark Phoenix has more in common with the early 2010s and some of the 90s score by Zimmer.

GR72020-09-26 20:13:06
I agree guys. Yhis album and parts of the experiments are vey enjoyable. I tend to listen to OST prriodically, and each year there is one or severall scores that replace what I listen the most, and so on... but Dark phoenix is one I can listen every time.
I made personal suites assembling music from the OST and mixing it with expremients, and it results in a 50 min suites album, I really like it.

Michael Hayko 2020-09-11 10:18:10
When Dark Phoenix was first released in the theaters I've been looking in on this site and ask Mr. Zimmer whan we can all expect a physical CD. Not once has he ever responded nor any of his minions. Bottom line is I really don't think he cares that much since his live concerts are doing so well and taking up so much of this time. Couple of you replied down below that the delay is been caused by technical difficulties, the technical difficulty is that Zimmer didn't compose the score by himself. He utilized three other composers. You can imagine the contract negotiations have gone to hell and have been a cluster F---! Thus Zimmer doesn't care; it's not a profitable endeavor!!

Randy Watson2020-09-11 10:28:37
@Michael Hayko

I don't know where you asked Zimmer, but (as far as I know) he doesn't post on this site. This is not Hans Zimmer's official site.

Also the film was a huge bomb at the Box Office, so I don't many record companies see this as a viable release.

I think this is solid Zimmer effort. It is not mind-blowing great like Interstellar or The Lion King or Gladiator, but a very interesting score. It is a mixture of melodic, reflective, and abstract Zimmer all at once.

"Insertion" is truly Zimmer at his power anthem glory. I think "Gap" and "Coda" are solid themes as well. The end of "Intimate" has some of the best action section, but too bad it is so short.

Paul2019-06-07 10:45:10
What tracks are more “power anthems” ??

Anonymous2019-06-07 14:44:46
Am I the only one who thought Interstellar was just okay? It had a few great tracks, like "Mountains" but a lot of it was just kind of loud and obnoxious for me.

And the mixing for the movie was entirely too loud, particularly during the black hole scene before the tesseract. Hans said during an interview that he told Nolan that he thought that music was too loud, and Nolan told him that it was his movie and he could do what he wanted.

Ds2019-06-07 15:56:10
That story was about the ending of The Dark Knight, I think :-p

Mephariel2019-06-07 16:17:43
Not sure why people think Interstellar is loud. Maybe the mixing is loud in some parts of the film, but compared to other Zimmer score like Chappie, Interstellar isn't even loud.

i agree. interstellar music's greatness has been blown out of proportion but for various reasons. the big one, for me at least, is right moment right time. dundirk, one of my favorites, was both a great picture and music. but the project did not land at a good moment...

That is 3 movies with a score from Hans Zimmer in 1 month!. Insane!

I noticed that the other day as well on IMDB. I know that’s not always reliable, but that would be awesome if he was involved. I’ve missed the “fun” side of Zimmer for awhile. The next couple of years hopefully produce a number of Zimmer classics.

He mentions the Dark Phoenix second CD here. 20:33 onwards.

"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".

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...

It's comforting to get a reconfirmation that it's coming.
Now we'll just have to cross our fingers that the process doesn't take months like that one other release ;)

Which one will be out first: End Credits or X-Periments? :P

This is promising! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and praying to the score gods at Disney that this is going to finally get released, but I'm also preparing for the possibility that I'll have to wait a year or two for the complete score to leak.

badbu2019-07-24 08:57:13
the only cue i want from the complete score is the piano cue (Jean & Charles "school"). But i want to hear the ideas and suites!!! :D i can't wait for it :-)

Halleluja awesome news!!!
Considering the big amount of work Hans put into it, this is awesome!
I really hope it will get a official release on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify so we can listen to it without problems.

A Fan2019-07-27 08:59:56
>> No GITS cannot be released, it's technically not possible... That's why Lorne leaked his part of the score himself...

What does "technically not possible" mean in this context? Is the harddrive which was used to store the music not working? This would be a technical problem. The music by Mansell would be great to listen to...

Why not leak those 16h of music for Dark Phoenix aswell? ;-)
Or even better, release a signed box set for $400-500, limited to 1000 or 2000 items. I'm sure it will sell out. I certainly would buy one :)

Why can't the unused music used in another movie? HGW once told us in a workshop that he has a lot of unreleased music and that he could use it in other movies if he wants to.

Hybrid Soldier2019-07-27 09:31:26
GITS cannot be released for various legal reasons.

Hybrid Soldier2019-07-27 11:55:38
On the other points, why not leak it ? Because for GITS it was Lorne's choice to do it...

And 16 hours, well it was specifically quite a lot but on all scores there happens to be hours of music left on the side. Hans wrote I'll Do Anything several times, or Matchstick Men, or Rango...

And about reusing it, of course that happens. He's exagerating. If the music belongs to the studio, he can't reuse it (even if it ends up not used in the film it was written for), but if he owns it (and that's the case for all this unused/rejected Dark Phoenix material), he could technically do whatever he wants with it.

Powell is a master at keeping ideas somewhere and use it for the correct project. But Hans does it from time to time too. A famous piece from Gladiator was written for another film a few years before...

Sam2019-07-27 14:27:54
Hybrid, who has the rights for 'Tears of the Sun'? Zimmer or any studio? Who owns the music? If Zimmer owns his music, is there any chance to release that one under the RCP label like Dark Phoenix?

Hybrid Soldier2019-07-27 15:50:50
Big studios own their music...

Hans owns his music for indepedent films mostly like 12 Years A Slave, The Little Prince, Widows, Freeheld, Brave Miss World, Chappie, Rush, The Pacific, Millennium, The Last Face, Mr Morgan's Lat Love, The Power Of One...

Edmund Meinerts2019-07-27 16:42:42
I'd love to learn more about ideas that Zimmer or Powell have been holding on ice, waiting for the right project to come along...I know there was that one old Powell promo/showreel full of demo versions of themes that would end up in lots of his scores, but I've never actually heard that one.

e2019-07-27 19:08:14
That's one reason I might buy this CD. If the CD has cool concepts and is a moderate success it'd be fun to hear some of the other "unfiltered" concepts/demos. In many Hans scores in particular the suites more precisely communicate the intent of the music than the score.

David2019-07-29 02:46:09
what was the Gladiator piece originally from another film??

JK2019-08-27 08:00:12
For people still pondering why The Ghost in the Shell score portions done by Clint Mansell won't be released ever, it's simple: test screeners! Clint and his team composed music for a majority of the philosophical parts which test screeners hated so much especially the original ending of the film where Kuze and Major come together in the mind. As a result of the test screenings, the philosophical elements were cut resulting in huge chunk of the Mansell team's music getting pulled aside, though a portion of the action themes done by Kevin Kiner remained with Lorne taking over the score with a revised third act with a more optimistic ending for potential sequels! So there, thank the test screeners who preferred pew pew movies over philosophical films that explained things! If you don't believe me, go to reddit and others will say the same thing!

So I've finished watching the movie for a second time. Here's my input:

Gap, Amity, Intimate, Negative, & Insertion are pretty much untouched. Dark is chopped up to fit the picture, and Frameshift, Reckless, & Coda have alternative, extended takes compared to what we actually hear in the album.

Still one of Zimmer's best. It's no Man Of Steel, but it's still a great listen.

The last minute and 50 seconds of Coda are beautiful. It would be stupid to try and glean too much about a composer from their music, but I wonder if Hans has a melancholy temperament. Cause he does sad stuff really well, to me.

WTF! So when is a CD of Dark Phoenix going to be released already! And why isn't Hans Zimmer more proactive on how his music is released? How could he settle for a digital download? I feel he's betraying his fans by not insisting that a CD be released immediately! Not so long ago when a film was released the soundtrack would be released as well. I guess those days are gone.

Kekec2019-07-29 15:10:52
I don't blame Zimmer for this, it's more to do with the studios in question. But otherwise I agree; I, too, miss the days when score CDs came with the movies. ItS getting rarer and rarer these days. :(

nvictor2019-07-30 00:23:43
to be honest guys, is CD really better than digital nowadays? maybe you guys can tell... but i can't. i am happy enough with digital (no DRM...)

Ahmad2019-07-30 11:37:18
Well, you can actually purchase Hi-Res 24-bit 44.1/48/96/192 kHz digitally which is "technically" better than what you would get on a CD (16-bit 44.1 kHz). But does that difference matter? Not sure. Though having those versions available is really good in cases like Dark Phoenix.

Now, I really do like to buy physical releases (CD and sometimes vinyl). It's nice to have the artwork and additional information, but it's not the end of the world if one movie doesn't get a release - knowing the circumstances. At least we got it digitally, legally and it's easily obtained.

Yes, especially for someone who's not trying to understand WHY...

I explained on the other page (for Xperiments) why it's not gonna happen.

Patrick2019-08-07 02:38:59
For me, the CD isn't so much about quality, but the experience. It's something tangible. It's reading the insert while listening to the score for the first time on CD. Just like they did with Vinyls at their peak. It's a collectable item. It's the artwork and the love that goes into the physical copy. I rather have that than a digital album cover and downloaded songs. I am realistic industry is moving forward and change must be embraced. It is just more sad than anything. Could Dunkirk be the last CD I ever bought from Hans? Maybe. But if so, then it's fine. One final thought, to me It is hard to justify paying $10 or so for something I can't feel in my hands. I know that sounds stupid. I paid the ridiculous price for the illuminated star projection edition of Interstellar just because it was special. I am sad to see that special touch go away. Thank you for listening to my TED talk.

Kekec2019-08-07 18:02:28
I'm absolutely with you, Patrick. While I'm glad the score (and other scores) come out at least as downloads, I do not like this trend at all. I only hope that the nostalgia for CDs will come soon just as it came for vinyls...

Daledebil2019-08-25 15:20:52
For me it's easy.
If there is a cd version I buy it. If there is only digital version.....NO
I'll pay for music while there are physical format (only cd really). I'm not interested in pay for downloads,Spotify, etc

tilibro2019-08-26 00:54:38
And streaming practically dominates how the majority listen to music. Physical media is costly and expensive to manufacture and don't sell very well in stores as everyone prefers to to use Spotify and getting the same album for free. Same goes for movies and TV shows as well with Netflix.

Wasn't a fan of this score on my first listen, and I'm not a fan of the film either - but I like the new themes Zimmer wrote and how they're weaved throughout the score. Thought I'd analyze the themes and how they recur in the score.

Zimmer made three major recurring themes - the new X-Men theme, the Phoenix theme, and Magneto's newest theme. "Amity" might contain a motif too, I discuss that more below.

1. "Gap" debuts the new X-Men theme, with various renditions throughout before the Phoenix theme debuts up at the end. Love how the X-Men theme starts off quiet, wish we had more of that in the score.

2. "Dark" is a suite for the Phoenix theme, it has various renditions of it too.

3. "Frameshift" starts off with the Phoenix theme, and then debuts Magneto's motif. The Phoenix theme returns more quietly through the track, then builds up to a violent rendition towards the end.

4. "Amity" is mostly gloomy ambience from the sound of it, but after listening to the whole score it seems like a theme of mourning. It plays after Mystique dies, and again after the loss of Jean. So I guess this counts as a fourth theme?

5. "Intimate" starts off with some uncertain vibes, then transitions to a more ethereal score. Magneto's theme returns, this time in full, with the full theme playing around 6:42. We're welcomed to more renditions of the X-Men theme during the NY skirmish.

6. "Negative" doesn't feature any of the other themes - save for a bit of the X-Men theme towards the end. This track might be a theme for the D'Bari, I think it's when Jessica Chastain takes the Phoenix force.

7. "Deletion" opens with Magneto's theme, and transitions to a violent rendition of the Phoenix theme, which continues through much of the track. The end of the track gave me some Ottman vibes.

8. "Reckless" starts off with a short piano theme - seriously thought Ottman's "Hope" theme was gonna' start at 0:35, haha. It's then followed by the gloomy theme from "Amity", can't remember what scene. Much of this track, similarly to "Gap", contains renditions of the new X-Men theme. An action rendition of Magneto's theme starts around 7:20.

9. "Insertion" starts off with Magneto's theme, its last appearance in the score - followed by a calmer version of the Phoenix theme, which leads to a more violent rendition of it. The theme quiets down to an eerie rendition of the Phoenix theme halfway through the track, and builds up to another violent rendition. The track concludes with a choral arrangement which kind of reminds me of the ending for "Terraforming" from Man of Steel.

10. "Coda" wraps up the score with a reprise of the mourning theme from "Amity". Splices in some bits of the X-Men theme too, and some piano notes towards the middle are derived from the Phoenix theme. Also uses some of the Phoenix chants towards the end. All in all a nice hopeful track to wrap up the film.

Might be some mistakes or things I missed. Hoping for that second score to release, I'd love to see Zimmer's ideas/sketchbook for the film.

nvictor2019-07-11 03:26:02
i identified four themes too. roughly in the order you describe them. two in gap -- although i am not familiar with x-men scores, so i didn't know about the new x-men theme. dark is by far my favorite track. and frameshift -- in my head, without seeing the movie -- is a theme that feels like a transition to evil. now that i read your comment, that phoenix theme is "that" villain theme in my head. and the magneto theme in frameshift is "that" transition. at least to me...

now, amity is where i am hearing the progression from Dido's Lament by Henry Purcell. a few people mentioned it was the inspiration for the score. since i have been paying attention to it, i am finding that other parts and themes blend so well with it or complement it well. the same thing with all the other themes. they blend so well that one could have started as chords or accompaniment for the other. and later turned into its own theme.

i am hoping to figure out how all these themes came from amity or from one another. and pray we get that 2nd CD that will have suites because it will solve everything :)

mpolonest123 2019-07-11 04:05:24
“Negative” is definitely the villain theme for Jessica Chastain, it also opens up the first two minutes of “Intimate”.

Great breakdown, there is still so much with the score to dissect. I love the way the Purcell motif from “Amity” recurs throughout the score, transforming into an action variation in “Reckless”.

Ahmad2019-07-11 13:13:47
I was going to do a similar analysis but got too lazy :P

Dark (or the first section of it) actually plays right after Gap in the film. Starts with Jean waking up and them arriving at the school.

I love how Hans sprinkled the new X-Men theme and Amity all over the score. The piano at the beginning of Reckless is actually part of the new X-men theme "Gap" and the big conclusion at the end of "Insertion" is a variation on the theme as well.

I count at least five unique themes:
1- The new X-Men theme
2- Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix
3- Magneto
4- Tragedy (Amity)
5- Vuk's theme (Chastain's character) - which is incredible

I really love the score and I hope we get to hear the content of the second CD. The end credits suite had very interesting variations not included in the album.

BC2019-07-12 17:25:13
You're forgetting Jean's theme at the beginning of "Frameshift", which in my opinion is one of the prettiest parts of the score. It starts shifting over to the Dark Phoenix theme 44 seconds in.

Is there a source that confirms a 2CD release/existence? I’ve been looking around and I’ve found nothing so far.

George2019-07-02 19:39:22
Facebook group. HZ confirmed himself. Go sign the petition, otherwise this release may not happen at all!

Kevin2019-07-09 09:02:43
I'm really hoping they pull through with that 2 CD edition, it would be great to have not only a physical copy but to know what his bonus material has to offer.

Ahmad2019-07-09 12:16:53
The whole thing is about getting the CONTENT of CD2 out :)
A physical release seems highly unlikely.

BC2019-07-09 18:18:38
Physical release is pretty much a no go at this point. Maybe if the movie hadn't bombed so hard, but the fact that Disney/Fox is going to lose about $150 million on it means that they're definitely not going to throw out money on getting a physical release done. We'll be REALLY, REALLY lucky if we get a digital release with the second disk, and I can live with that, despite wanting a vinyl copy of this very badly.

Hybrid Soldier - It seems like you work in the bizz? are you working the same place as Hans?
I have a few questions maybe you can answer?

A few weeks ago Hans Zimmer composed the theme for 13 Minutes to the moon. And last year he did a theme for a car commercial (scoring the drive).
And now the ekstra cd release with Dark Phoenix, which is doubtful will ever be released even though we have signed the petition. A track that is also missing a release is Thunderbirds - Live in Prague...
None of these music tracks were ever released on Apple or Spotify. Why not?

How can a world famous genius composer like Hans still compose great music that don't get I digital release, these days... How can that be?
Who decides if it gets a digital release on iTunes or Spotify if not Hans himself?
Us - the fans have to find it on youtube which is too bad.
You would think that a creative and music lover like Hans would want to get all his music out to the public?

Friendly regards.

Thanks for the link @Hybrid. With Han’s clout I can’t see why on earth they wouldn’t put out an already finished album. Regardless of the film’s performance.

there is so much to love about this soundtrack. it always brightens my day when i discover something i haven't noticed before. here are a few favorites:

the sharp transition from very quiet to very loud at the beginning of "Gap" gets me every single time.

"Dark" is such an amazing track. i have grown as a score fan and listener and now i gravitate towards tracks that are moving slow, moody, with only a few strong moments. "Dark" delivers all of that. at the moment it's easily my favorite.

the choir in "Dark" (and throughout the album) is said to have been done before but nothing i heard before compares to the "humming" and those tribal sounding voices. it's such a joy to listening to plus when it complements the percussion it is just awesome.

the end of "Reckless" does not seem to have a resolving note and that trick has been used before. but what's new for me is that i seem to hear that final note at the beginning of next track "Insertion". also the end of "Reckless" is pretty much "Amity" but more intense.

when i previewed "Coda" i thought it sounded hopeful like the end of Gladiator. but now it also sounds like Chevaliers de Sangreal. and the voices give me a Circle of Life vibe. it is such a hopeful track and yet feels so incomplete. that's what makes it so beautiful.

nvictor2019-06-29 10:52:49
"Amity" looks like is it in a canon form with the main and accompanying themes circling on different instruments. really simple but effective. i also like that pulse in the low end (a la dunkirk).

Decent movie, way better than crappy endgame.
