Is this legit?First 2 minutes look like to be demo of "Home"Zimmer, Badelt and Djawadih t t p s://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAleXrIgBr8&feature=youtu.be hello I found this a while ago it is a rejected theme from the film lone ranger, score compos by hans zimmer. Probably hans didnt like this theme and decided not to use it, or maybe it was directors decision not to use. Anyway, enjoy it! I like very much the score how it is now but this ideas is interesting!<br>Just listen to "The Oil" for an example
The orchestral intro to "it's on again" (also outro of "You're that spider guy", just not with the percussion from TASM2) was re-used all over the Dunkirk score as well. The bass line for it is pretty obviously or very similarly re-purposed in a few places.Bill Conti gets an Oscar...so...i think Hans get a nominationThe reason I believe it partially depends on the piece's composition date is because of copyright laws. Arrival had to pay rights to use Richter's piece, just like if it had used a pop song, and I believe this played a big factor in its disqualification. Elgar's piece is public domain now, so it would be like if a score had included a Mozart sonata (extreme comparison).LOL @Macejko. I think Edmund is completely exhausted now. It'll take two to three days regain all the fluids he lost.@ James D<br><br>I don't disagree that Star Wars is the tip-of-the-iceberg when it comes to film music projects. However, you have to remember Powell has been in the game far longer than Giacchino has. I don't believe it has to do with how long you've been in the business, but if you're "sound" can carry the movie.
Powell's reception as composer of the new SW has been excellently welcomed! Wonderful!<br><br>------------------------------------------------------[<br><br>@Andrew<br><br>Let's face it: SW is still a very distant star for Balfe. Not just for him, for many others. Even John Powell. Achieving that score is an event in his career.Vced - balfes score to Home for example clearly shows he can write music like that .It's RCP's style and it's pretty much different of William's LOL"Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !"<br><br>John Powell isn't Hans Zimmer. <br><br>When has Zimmer (or Balfe for that matter) ever written a score that remotely sounds like Star Wars - who seriously thought that was going to happen LOL.<br><br>Much as I like Hans, this is a job for educated composers.<br><br>No way !<br><br>Hans was dining with Ron like 3 days before Ron was announced as director. But first, Powell was hired before Ron was in, and second I doubt Hans had 0,001 % interest in it, and probably rather pushed Ron towards JP !
This is great news! I really wanted Hans to do this but if not him then Powell is a great choice which I am sure Hans somehow was involved in. <br><br>I just hope this doesn't mean that Hans and Ron Howard won't work together in the future.Star wars finally turns to the Zimmerian's style then !Edmund, be sure to tell us you're OK after all those cumshots.What shame Balfe didn't get the opportunity especially after GeniusThe official Star Wars website just confirmed that John Powell will score the untitled Han Solo movie! Since the day Ron Howard took over, I've anticipated Hans Zimmer to do it but John Powell is definitely next to him on the list. What an exciting news!

One thing that needs to happen Zimmer should put all of is stuff on iTunes to make it available for everyone all the unofficial releases. It doesn't need to even be complete scores just some of the stuff from scores like this that never got released

For some scores that sound like Contender sequels check out David Vanacore. He's credited in the score here but nobody's said anything about him. He writes for pretty much all of the big game shows and reality shows today.

The theme to Duel is particularly similar to The Contender. To bad they don't sell its score either. Check him out. I was surprised I'd never heard of him. (Listen to the "Reality Drama" samples!)

www.davidvanacore.com

Apparently the only Vanacore albums for sale are Survivor and Eco Challenge on Amazon:

No where! It's called a bootleg for a reason.

Yeah, to remove music, lol.

These tracks signify the defeat and truimphs of MEN. This has to be released for so many postive reasons. Classical music for warriors!!

You're all idiots because this is an unofficial fan site. Hans Zimmer isn't reading these comments and going "Hmm I should listen to these guys." Even if he did, composers don't control the rights over their music, studios do.

Why are we idiots? This music inspires and is probably the most motivating score I've ever heard. If you'd like to listen for yourself, just go to imeem.com and search "The Contender." You won't be disappointed.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2009-01-11 00:00:00
@ (...)

Where would you go to get a CD released then ?
It's better to post that you want something released here, than nowhere. I mean, the studios won't read any of the mails, but if the wishes to have something release are posted nowhere, how would ANYone know someone is interested in this ?

Also, there is a chance that Hans or another composer reads these messages. Some time ago Trevor Morris (If I'm correct) asked to be removed from the site. And Disney asked to remove the samples of Pirates music. So people of the industry DO come here. Better try and fail than no try at all.

Hello Mr.Zimmer I truly enjoy this soundtrack. I pray that you let the world hear this muisc that you have created it gives me strength to keep moving.I think bruce lee himself would enjoy it.

I just finished listening through streams of this album and let me tell you, every track is epic in every sense of the word. "Defeat (Theme 1)" is an incredibly emotional track and will remind you of another Zimmer work, "The Thin Red Line." Other great tracks are "Training" and "Victory." Both are so powerful and so moving, one can't help being touched by Zimmer and Jablonsky's work. The greatest track though, of course is the "Main Theme." Overall, one of the best albums ever and I can't wait to get my hands on it someday.

I've been hoping this music would be released for 3 1/2 years, now. By far the best theme music for a television series!

How many people would have to sign a petition before Mr. Zimmer releases this album? I know I'd be the first one on the list, because for this is one of the most moving albums to date. Just a thought...

Hans Zimmer did not composed the Main Theme, the all score (including main theme) is by Steve Jablonsky, if you listen, the style is 100% Jablonsky, drums, bells.......

Mr. Zimmer, why are you afraid not to release the soundtract for sale? A lot of us fans watched "The Contender" not only for the dream of one boxer to become a champion, but also for the beautiful music that you have so marvelously composed for this series.

For you not to release this wonderful soundtrack is a big disappointment of fans like me who are into inspiritional music. This music stirs not my soul but the souls of other people.

Here is my offer, release the soundtrack for a limited time(60 to 90 days). If a lot of people buy it, then you know you have a hit album that could easily go platimun Share this piece of music with the rest of the world. Besides, would Beethoven have decided to kept his music to himself? Would Elvis only sang his songs to his mother and no one else? Come on Mr. Zimmer, step out of your comfort zone and let the public have a copy of the soundtrack from "The Contender."

The Contender is such a great motivator. As an executive associated with sales people, I'd love to be able to play this song every week at our meetings to get people fired up. As an old boxer, this one song motivates me. It's kind of like the orginal song "The EYE of the TIGER" from Rocky movies.
