I just watched your Vanity Fair video from two years ago. Your take on life and your music is amazing, keep up the good work!I do really like benjamin wallfisch's new score for the invisible man, which is release today in cinema. I'm a fan of wallfisch's film score since lights out and including other film scores, but i begin to hear the score in spotify & youtube and i do like the score with the full orchestra & electronic music within the film music and there are two themes for the film but there are most motif, like mr.zimmerfan says. <br><br>I just hope that this page can released the soundtrack details of The Invisible man soon and this score is good.The Invisible Man, would be one of the most dark, hard-hearing scores by Wallfisch, by far, multiple people will hate this score -i know, is difficult listening horror scores-, but when is good, is good.<br><br>If you love Lights Out, the two ITs, speacially, A Cure for Wellness, The Invisible Man is for you: dark, unpleasing (the theme for Elisabeth Moss' character is a beautiful melodie, example in 'Denouement', constantly accosed -rightly word- with the sounds of the Invisible Man, he has not theme, more motif and tremendously agresive sound desing, you can here listen in 'Attack') and very Hermann-esque (the score was only recorded with string orchestra, say by Wallfisch).<br><br>Like i said before, is not a score for everyone, but if you love Wallfisch's writing for horror, this one is for you
Now, i believe, is one of the best (i was more enganging with this one more than Solo, wich i still found good, but not the best from Powell, sorry) scores written by Powell, still, not has tremendous as the HTTYD trilogy, but one of the most incredible, beautiful and heart-warming scores written by him.<br><br>Powell found himself comfortable with this style of americana/folk (Wake the Girls, is a such good start the album) and combining it with his action/adventure style of writing ('Snowy Climb', the incredible -one of the best cues of the album- 'Buck Takes the Lead', 'Ice Rescue'), but when it comes the emotional -not discover nothing new-, man, Powell is fricking good: 'We Carry Love', 'Finding Bears and Love in the Woods' or 'Come Say Goodbye'.<br><br>One of the best scores of 2020, by far.I found myself more entertaining by this one (after multiple listenings) than with Skyscraper, but not more than TLK or TMNT and TLWH.<br><br>The themes are there, very simplistic, but effective (the melodie for RST twisted in 'Harting', for example or the more melodic and peaceful theme in 'KT'), and yes, the sound design, but in the defense of Jab, he is far more rhytmic than others attepmting it (the element of horror hearing in 'Martin Axe' or the percussive twisted agressive in 'The Tunnel') or the more echoing 'The Island' guitar riffs in 'Ray Garrison', even he reutilizes the percussive timing Decepcticon theme for the motif (i think) for Bloodshot.<br><br>Maybe, i gave him more credit, but in his defense, i was expecting something more electronic (plenty electronic are here), but is more orchestral and melodic i was expecting.Sadly this one failed to impress in any way for me. I felt like falling asleep for much of this album. Overall too simplistic, ugly, and cliched with very difficult to pin down thematic material, as the melodies are so minimalist.To whom it may concern...<br><br>Is it possible to download or in any other way purchase the Hannibal (Expanded) score somewhere? I have the original motion picture soundtrack, but would LOVE to have them both..<br><br>Best regards<br><br>Nicholas10 and 16 are missing from the store pack.
Most probablyI am not a hybrid, i will try to give my opinion. I think, music in 5 season will come out when and 6 season. But I really want to be wrong!!! :)It's very sad...(((The 'Allentown Brothers' track is pretty damn awesome (find it on YouTube). It's like a mix between gothic Elfman, Desperate Housewives and Transformers. I love it.<br><br>It's one of those scores that people don't talk about much but it's actually pretty cool. <br><br>An awesome venue would be the Opera House in Odessa.
Want this so bad!!!Does anyone have a breakdown of this with the official score album?<br>Hats off to Batu Sener for working on many of the score's best cues though!It all comes to personal preference I think. Personally I’ve moved on from collecting cd’s (or anything really) and would rather have everything digital simply to utilize space. <br><br>That being said, I completely understand the appeals of having physical media, it would be sad to see that go away for the people who really love it.It's not only to appreciate the work, its to have something "real" in your hands, for your music collection. I don't like only to have a digital music archive. Of course, i rip all the cds i own to WAV and MP3. But i want to have them in my physical music collection.

HANS ZIMMER TO SCORE WONDER WOMAN 1984



Hans Zimmer has signed on to score Wonder Woman 1984. Patty Jenkins returns to direct Gal Gadot as the titular hero. Hans first scored the character in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman - Dawn Of Justice back in 2016, giving Wonder Woman her now iconic theme. Rupert Gregson-Williams, Hans's longtime collaborator, scored the first Wonder Woman film in 2017. Wonder Woman 1984 will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures on November 1, 2019.

Why are there so many people angry at Hans for scoring superhero movies again.
Averybody says something sometimes that they change later for whatever reason. We don't know what the reason is he's scoring X-Men & WW.

I personally think it's great that Hans is scoring superhero movies and beside that The Lion King and Widows. I think these four scores are going to be great.


mpolonest1232018-08-24 15:04:33
I fully agree. But I do want to see Zimmer actually write a fun and energetic superhero score, much like he did with TASM2 and portions of MoS (and even Megamind if you want to count that). We’ve seen Zimmer tackle the “darker” tone plenty of times with BvS and the Nolan trilogy.

Personally I did not like Batman v Superman, and frankly I’m glad to see the trend of overly serious, self-important superhero films go away. There will never be another franchise like Nolan’s.


mpolonest1232018-08-24 15:05:40
And as for the score *most likely* being analog synth, I think it could make for some fun music. Like a less abrasive version of Chappie...


superultramegaa2018-08-24 15:50:26
Well, just speaking for myself, I don't think Hans has it in him anymore. The Dark Knight Trilogy was well done, the little work he did in TASM 2 was pretty fun, BvS was a mixed bag, and his career has gone downhill along with his track record for superhero films.

I fully believe he had the most stress with BvS. You can hear it in the music. He just can't get a really great track in there. He's trying to make a new Batman theme but it's just a slightly re-arranged version of the "Batman Rising" theme from Batman Begins, boy choir and all. His Superman theme didn't feel any different in tone to his Batman theme, and the other themes (including Wonder Woman's) were kind of mixed bags themselves.

Of course I'd like to be proven wrong, but it's probably just going to be really cheesy and unpleasant to listen to synths with no orchestra in sight (IMO Wonder Woman's theme should be primarily orchestral because of her age and history), and the electric guitar/cello version of the main theme will be repeated ad nauseam. Very rarely in the past 2 years as he been able to reproduce anything close to how his career used to be.


mpolonest1232018-08-24 16:05:11
@superultramega
But that is your personal tastes. I get not liking synths/electronics, so this probably wouldn’t work for you. But for someone who does enjoy that style of music, I am pretty excited. It all comes down to personal preference.
And in the past few years you still have Interstellar, TASM2, Hidden Figures, KFP3, Chappie, Boss Baby, etc. I think Hans has still “got it” ;-)

But as for BvS, I do agree. Everything feels so uninspired. After MoS built up Superman’s theme, it gets completely downplayed. Even the action cues feel so lifeless overly processed. I feel like this was more on Snyder than Hans though. I wouldn’t be surprised if his “retirement” was an excuse not to do Justice League.

Hans: i'm done with superheroes movies...ah okay...
i need a orchestral score now!!!


dirty_score2018-08-24 10:44:23
Since this is 1984, you can expect more like a synth sound which is not necessarily a bad thing... maybe a throwback to his old days..

not doing superheroes anymore? yea right : ]

clearly doing it for the ladies, in my humble opinion. and it's okay and fine. all that happened in hollywood cost dunkirk the best score award. dunkirk didn't get the award because people were not happy with hollywood. that's what i think happened.

NTNB reply Replies: 4 || 2018-08-22 22:52:48
Interesting. Makes me wonder why he didn’t score the first one. Busy with the tour? Clearly not retiring from superheros.

What’s even more interesting, why did he opt-out from Justice League?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:05:05
He was, in fact, in the middle of the tour when WW 1 was done...


Mike2018-08-22 23:10:09
Do you think Hans would have scored Justice League if not for the tour?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:16:18
Hard to say. I don't think so. I think he really wanted it to be Junkie's moment. I'm sure he would have helped if needed though. Under other circumstances...


Bill Koufo2018-08-23 07:19:05
Maybe the first Wonder Woman was the "amazing script" that Hans was talking about and that would bring him back to the genre. He made that statement in the beginning of 2017 I think, so I guess they asked him to score the movie and he gave it to RGW, because of the tour.

Mephariel reply Replies: 12 || 2018-08-22 23:18:59
I think he knew Justice League would suck big time.

Hybrid, is Hans done with The Lion King yet? I would imagine he has to be working on Dark Phoenix soon right?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:26:11
Widows is completed.

TLK is under way and a long process due to the nature of the film (animation, songs etc.).

X Men, he's been working on that for a long time. But since the film seems to be under heavy reshoots all the time, he doesn't even know when the whole thing is gonna be finished (it will have to, at some point ! lol).


...2018-08-22 23:32:04
Did HZ consider POTC5 and decide not to do it because of the tour?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:35:39
Never, he closed the POTC door right after POTC 4...


...2018-08-22 23:36:59
Okay. It's too bad how it turned out. They might make a 6th movie as well.


Mephariel2018-08-22 23:44:34
I kind of wish Zimmer would come back for POTC6 just to close the whole thing out. But I think there is no chance at this point.


...2018-08-22 23:47:00
+1


Mike2018-08-22 23:56:06
Eh, if Powell could come back for Jason Bourne, I feel like anything is possible...


Scorefan2018-08-23 00:09:31
@ Hybrid, Hans is considering leave X-Men Dark Phoenix with those massive reshooots?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-23 00:15:59
Have no clue about JXL's Justice League... As I said, I doubt he wasn't far in the writing process, but I also doubt anything got recorded.

As for X-Men, no, he's definitely NOT quitting it, no matter what's going on with the production.


Mephariel2018-08-23 00:39:56
@Mike

I hope so. But what is working against him coming back is that Zimmer already put his stamp on the series with At World's End. The POTC scores are already some of the most popular in modern times. There is not much motivation for him to come back. If he does, it will only be for the fans.


Nick2018-08-23 01:32:35
So much for retiring from the superhero genre...again. Lol

Sounds like Hans is going to be incredibly busy for the next year or so. Is he feeling at all creatively fatigued from all this?



ThePhantasm2018-08-23 04:04:08
@Hybrid will we ever hear Lorne Balfe do a superhero score? I'm dying to see what he'll do with that

Scorefan reply Replies: 0 || 2018-08-23 00:08:21
@Hybrid, did Tom recorded some music for Justice League? I mean for this controversy about Snyder Cut. Some comments say the runtime with Zack is over 3 hours and there are comments about The Snyder cut is true and have Tom's music.
