Good to see there are expanded cues on the second disc, but that still doesn't justify the price.
Anyway I've seen the movie for 3 times, and can't remember almost any missing music. Which cues could be found on the 2nd disc?
I remember the bank robbery scene had differenc music than 'Why So Serious'?

Yeah I guess the 2nd CD contains the few unreleased bits + Film Versions of the OST tracks (like the real prologue, the real end sequence)...

The harbound book is a nice addition for the price.
I know I'm stupid, but what does 8x8x40 page means? The number of pages are 40, and 8x8x is the height-width?

I hope the new material on the second disc outweigh those remixes... And somebody please fire the guy who came up with the idea of "REMIXES". It annoys the hell out of me.

Well if the unreleased tracks will be at least 40-50 minutes (as were on the POTC box), then I might ask Santa to bring it under the tree. I hope I was a good boy. smilie

If only Warner would do this for "Batman Begins". There's so much missing off that CD release.

As for this one, I really hope they included Hans' unused "heroic" Batman theme......but I'm not holding my breath.

I'm still stoked about this though!!

It`s not unused - it`s in the official release (first one is in "I`m not a Hero" and "Introduce a Little Anarchy", second "unused theme" is in "Like a Dog Chasing Cars" - this is the one that was unused in The Dark Knight (and it`s variation on TDK`s main theme), because it`s too "heroic" ).

While I'm extremely excited for this release it still makes me a bit angry that I have to pay $50 for it. This is the same thing that Disney did with Pirates. Bundle all the unreleased stuff with the previous scores (which everyone owned). I get every HZ score the day it's released.

It would be nice if they released the second disc separately so instead of $50 I would only pay $15. Although I am interested in that 40 page booklet.

Academy disqualifies 'Dark' score

quote:

The score for "The Dark Knight" has been disqualified by the executive committee of the Academy music branch. Formal letters to that effect are expected to go out this week to composers Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, who collaborated on the music.

Their previous collaboration, on "Batman Begins," was similarly disqualified in 2005. Sources inside the committee said that the big issue was the fact that five names were listed as composers on the music cue sheet, the official studio document that specifies every piece of music (along with its duration and copyright owner) in the film.

Zimmer said, in an interview with Variety prior to this week's Acad action, that listing multiple names on the cue sheet was a way of financially rewarding parts of the music team who helped make the overall work successful. (Performing-rights societies like ASCAP and BMI use the cue sheet to distribute royalties to composers.)

Zimmer, Howard and the other three individuals -- music editor Alex Gibson, ambient music designer Mel Wesson and composer Lorne Balfe -- reportedly signed an affidavit stating that the score was primarily the work of Zimmer and Howard.

That apparently wasn't enough for the majority of the committee, which was also supplied with documentation indicating that more than 60%, but less than 70%, of the score was credited to Zimmer and Howard. The "Dark Knight" score -- and the whole issue of multiple-composer collaboration, which is on the rise in Hollywood these days -- has occupied about four hours of discussion over the past two executive committee meetings.

Some members sided with Zimmer and Howard; citing the originality and cutting-edge nature of the music, they urged others to keep the "Dark Knight" score eligible despite the cue-sheet issue.

Both Zimmer and Howard declined comment on the ruling. Both are seven-time nominees; Zimmer won for "The Lion King."

Thats an interesting story. A little bit stupid behavior from the academy committee though.

I mean , Alan Silvestri didnt do Back To the future alone (nominated for an oscar ) , like Elfman for batman ( was he nominated ? not sure ) . Both of these people relied heavily on orchestrators ( especially Alan ) , the only difference is the orchestrators at the time werent considered like additionnal music writer, and so were not credited on the music cue sheet smilie

It's a stupid rule that the Academy doesn't allow co-compositions. I was surprised Gladiator got nominated but if you recall it was only Hans who got a nomination; not Lisa or Klaus.

They changed the rules after The Color Purple won Best Score and 6 composers ended up getting an Oscar for it.
