The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to Be Scored by Hans Zimmer & Pharrell Williams
In an interview with Billboard, Pharrell revealed that he will be working closely with Hans Zimmer on the score for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This would not be the first time Pharrell has worked with Zimmer – the pair have worked together multiple times, including on the scores for Man of Steel and the 84th Annual Academy Awards in 2012.

Hans Zimmer ‘Might Not Feel Right’ Scoring ‘Batman Vs. Superman’
For Man of Steel, Hans Zimmer took on the task that many Hollywood composers would outright refuse: attempt to craft a Superman score that would somehow be able to stand outside of John Williams’ iconic shadow. His solution was to work with director Zack Snyder to craft something not better, but different.
The new Superman theme gave many goosebumps, but it seems that Zimmer is in no hurry to sign on for the sequel, Batman vs. Superman. In a recent interview, the composer explains why he’s unsure, and why a return to Batman “might not feel right.”
This news is anything but a bombshell, since Hans Zimmer isn’t exactly in need of work, and made it clear from the very first announcement that the dark knight would appear in a Man of Steel sequel that he “thought he was done with Batman.” For his part, Zimmer has supported the decision to cast Ben Affleck as a new caped crusader, but has maintained that a second crack at Batman’s music isn’t something he’s aching to take part in.
Harry Gregson-Williams came to Paris on the weekend of 5 and 6 October for the second festival of “Festival des Musiques a l’Image”
Harry Gregson-Williams came to Paris on the weekend of 5 and 6 October for the second festival of “Festival des Musiques a l’Image”.
The annual festival, hosted by Audi invited the composer this year for a master class on Saturday at the Gaite Lyrique and for the first part of the great concert, which paid tribute this year to the legendaries 40 years of collaboration between composer John Williams (“the other Williams” said the amusing Harry Gregson-Williams) and director Steven Spielberg on Sunday at the French theater Le Grand Rex.
The British composer delivered in a stunning master class his method of composing by analyzing live different pieces of its composition: Shrek, Arthur Christmas, Kingdom of Heaven, Veronica Guerin, Man on Fire, Unstoppable and Team America.
A great learning time!
Hailed by a conquered prosecutor, Harry Gregson-Williams leads on Sunday the “Orchestre de Paris” in the first part of the concert.
Directed with verve and vivacity, the Orchestra performs with perfection the talented composer’s music for the pleasure of the audience, delighted by the beauty of the scores (Shrek, Shrek 2, Bridgestone 2, Prince of Persia.)
