what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.
TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.
It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsameNo no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?
Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.

I wonder if the release will be tied to the international film release date on 12/16 or the US date of 12/25.


MrZimmerFan2020-11-20 08:36:53
My bet is for 12/16.

But it seems it will the same move as The Witches or similar


badbu2020-11-20 08:41:16
i think (hope) it will be a friday.
maybe 12/18 or 12/25

It’ll probably come out on the 25th unfortunately.

The extent of Blankenburg's involvement with WW84 is one of the trailers using a track composed by him.

Do you know anything about the movie if it will come out at the end in December?


Iamtommie442020-11-19 00:52:40
Warner Bros posted a trailer of WW84. But took it down very quickly. At the end of the trailer it says that it's being released in cinemas & HBO Max (no extra cost) at the same time on Dec. 25.

That means we still have 3 Hans Zimmer scores in 2020!!


mills2020-11-19 03:39:28
yep, Warner Bros has made its decision so we will get this in late December.

There is a serious rumors that No time to die are pushed to 2021. I Think Dune will follow. Tenet was to much confusing with a simple plot, can't call it a savior. I believe only Dune can do it, of course if the director followed the same path as of BR 2049.


Hybrid Soldier2020-09-15 00:53:15
You realize BR2049 was a massive commercial failure ? :o


FaresTdkr2020-09-15 20:51:46
Sorry @hybrid, i meant if he did not follow the same path as BR 2049.
this movie(Dune) can prove where the last star Wars movies get it wrong.

Hybrid Soldier2020-09-11 19:35:59
Until when ? lol


BC2020-09-13 12:16:33
At this point I'm starting to prepare myself for the very real possibility that we aren't getting a new Hans score this year. Tenet's not doing great at the box office and wasn't the "savior of cinema" like everyone claimed it was going to be, and no one else is willing to take a loss on their $200-250m movie.

I'm feeling like it'll be next summer before movies start truly returning to theaters and people feel like it's safe to go.


MrZimmerFan2020-09-13 12:29:41
No Time to Die comes this November, and Warner said for WW84, will come in 2020.

As for Tenet, if anyone thinks they will come across a hit like a year before, thinks wrong, because, Warner has prepared for this, they said 'is not like a sprint, more like a marathon'. No Rush, But No Pause.



Mephariel2020-09-13 20:20:07
At the very least we will get Hillbilly Elegy right? That is a Netflix movie.


Hybrid Soldier2020-09-13 21:09:15
Yeah but they wanted a limited theater release for Award season...


So who knows...


MrZimmerFan2020-09-13 21:12:32
But Netlix does both things, no?

Like The Irishman


BC2020-09-13 22:15:13
NTTD is holding its date so far but I'd bet money that it's going to get shifted into either a February or late April release of next year in Oct. Feb would give it a good window before Fast 9 drops in April, and releasing at the end of April would give it a few weeks space from F9's release.

It's possible that we'll get either Dune or WW in December, but I doubt it'll be both. I think they'll likely drop WW because it has a built in fan base that'll support it and that will come back for a third film provided WW84 is good, which it likely will be. Dune needs to do well on it's first outing so WB can gage franchise potential, and if that second movie is going to get made and I can see them delaying it to May 2021 at the earliest.

So at best we'll get 2 Hans scores and at worst likely 1 or none. Ultimately it depends on how bad flu season gets with the "global situation" currently going on.

Anonymous reply Replies: 3 || 2020-08-25 07:55:04
It appears that responses to this piece have been overwhelmingly positive.

Perhaps this reaches out to decision makers and convinces them that the market for uplifting music is just as strong as those serious (and dare I say, cold) soundscapes movie-makers elsewhere are crazy about.


MrZimmerFan2020-08-25 12:30:10
If the movie benefits for that, yes, but is the other way around... not too much.

Not every movie needs soundscape/sound designs or a fully orchestral palette


mpolonest1232020-08-25 15:12:34
I’ve had this piece on repeat since it was released and was surprised at how much I missed hearing this sound from Zimmer.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy post-2010 Zimmer as much as the next guy, but between this and Lion King I’m really starting to wish for this more dynamic type of scoring. Not just from HZ either, I feel like the industry could benefit from a return to more traditional scoring, even with a modern twist.

And I do like the soundscape approach to scores, but it seems like most of the indie films/tv shows/etc. utilize a very similar approach. Same with how blockbusters had that Dark Knight/Inception sound for a while.


Mephariel2020-08-25 18:01:49
I would love to hear this type of music more but it just depends on the movie and the director. I think modern movies are so muted in color and in general are more gritty and tonally realistic. The only exceptions are superhero films or John Wick type movies and you are getting this type of scoring in a lot of those films already (far inferior and more generic than this piece imo).

I think the only way the industry will go back to traditional scoring is if art films change and titans like Nolan, Villeneuve, etc. embraces it.

The other composers may have had little bits of input and maybe more on the full score, but Hans usually controls the themes a bit more. Also, hybrid said it was a sign from Hans and David


Edmund Meinerts2020-08-24 22:44:19
Those are some iffy credits. Bob Badami's not a composer, and I'd be pretty surprised if Hans' (ex-)wife had anything to do with the track. Feels like a bunch of random diverse credits and thank-yous that all got lumped under the same category by iTunes.

David Fleming seems to be the go to guy for orchestral stuff with Hans. He also worked with Hans on Planet Earth: A Celebration I believe.

The track is great! It reminds me of some kind of mix between Angels & Demons and The Lion King with WW's theme mixed in.

I hope Zimmer not only uses his theme but also the ones Rupert Gregson-Williams did for the WW movie.

And I hope the score is a mix of orchestral and synth stuff!

There won't be any use of RGW's material.

Oh, that's too bad, I loved the theme he did for Diana and Steve, but I'm sure Zimmer will do great.
