I wouldn’t be surprised if he wrote another long sketchbook for it...I honestly have no idea... But I can't believe back in June when he left he hadn't done a bunch of the score already...The thing is with Jablonsky scores composers rarely get cuesheet credits, so you can't really draw conclusions out of it.

@Hybrid <br><br>Did Tom actually record anything for the film or did he just do demos?It's the same 24 tracks divided on two CDs. I'm truly hoping for a nice numbered digipak that separates the limited editions from the regular release otherwise it would be quite a crappy move from the record label. <br><br>"Joss said, ‘Let’s do it [Batman’s theme] on the nose. Fans love this kind of stuff.’" Why do you have to ruin everything, Joss?This film is atrocious. Suicide Squad was a mess but that film was forgivable. What WB decided to with JL is embarrassing, to say the least. Forcing Zack to change the tone and add forced childish humor and quips, demanding a less than 2-hour runtime, extensive reshoots with Whedon in charge... wtf were they thinking?<br><br>It's interesting to note that Zack hasn't even seen this abomination yet.Andrew loaded some cues to the movie "The Last Face" up on his soundcloud page, go & check it :)<br><br>soundcloud.com/andrewkawczynski/sets/the-last-face
Nice!<br>What about the 2nd CD?Watched this movie yesterday and it didn't make the score any better. It's not the worst thing I've ever heard but after what we got with MoS & BvS it's just disappointing. There's so much missed opportunities. Both the movie and the score had so much potential but it's just flat. <br><br>The problem isn't just Elfman or Whedon, it's WB! They wanted the change in direction and that's really sad.The movie itself is bad on so many levels and adding to that in many scenes I was shaking my head as I was hearing a completely different score in my mind, but there it was, something which took me out of the movie. Disappointed.<br><br>Do you think Whedon would've convinced the producers to replace the composer(s) if Hans was scoring this along with Junkie? I can't imagine what the uproar it would've created.Yes they did.<br><br>That Phantom Stache is in 90% of the Cavill shots...<br><br><br>Warner/DC died and chose Whedon to nail the coffin...<br><br><br>I hope like Superman 2, that one day, we'll get the "Donner's Cut" of this movie as it was supposed to be, because I think it was almost finished (even the score I'm sure Tom had written a good part of it).Came back from watching the movie and I couldn't agree more about what @Ds said. Adding to the scenes you mentioned I really felt instead of the intro song they should have played a variation Clark's piano theme it would've been so perfect as that whole sequence depicts a direct consequence of Clark/Superman's death and the loss everyone feels. <br><br>**SPOILERS**<br>And how fucking epic it would've been if MoS theme was played in all it's glory when he comes to their aid and punches Steppenwolf in the face. <br><br>What a wasted opportunity and did they reshoot all Cavill's scenes? His face looked so weird in almost all the shots with the CGI removed moustache.
And if the critics put better scores to Marvel movies over DC movies, my opinion is they lost objectivity. the same kind with the scores. <br>The score is an essential part of the film, it's a character and it's important. <br>And the scores of DC have and identity.Normally I’m not one for petitions but I think releasing an alternate version with JXL’s score and whatever other changes they could make.<br><br>Danny Elfman’s score has really been warming up to me the more I listen to it (on its own I don’t think it’s really that bad) but the lack of thematic continuity is definitely a sore spot. If Junkie could get a chance to rescore it, that would be a fair shake for Snyder and fans of Zimmer’s work.After i finally saw the film, well in my opinion the film is incredibly. Watching those characters in a film is just like boy's dream. <br>I have watched every movie from Marvel and DC Cimenatic Universe, and i love both lines of cmics and for me, the first line of Marvel movies was the best in terms of narration. Iron man 1, the incredible hulk, thor 1, Captain america the first avenger were extraordinary movies. By now, i think Marvel/Disney go to the way of jokes to make the rest of the movies and i think this lost the interest in the movies, except with Captain America the winter soldier, Ant-man and captain merica civil war. Thor 3 is good, but for example Spiderman Homecoming was less good than Thor 3 but in sometimes i feel i am watching the same kind of movie. It's the same with the score, The incredible hulk, for me, is the best score for the Marvel series along with The winter soldier. One thing surprise me, "critics" put better scores for all the marvel movies except TV shows, and DC movies all have bad scores except wonder woman. And for me i enjoyed more the DC movies over Marvel movies. Man of steel and batman v superman were phenomenal movies and better than marvel movies. It's my opinion and Justice League is better than The first avengers. The tone of DC movies it's more like the comics and more dark, more serious. Maybe that's why i like them.<br>The same thing with the scores, i think The theme Arcade is the new superman theme. The themes for Batman (Elfman) and Superman (Maestro Williams) are iconic. But for the new kind of movies (The Dark Knight trilogy) the score Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard made for the films were awesome. If you put old score (Elfman Batman) to nolan's films well the films lost their identity. DC producers take some risks to put the films into darkness and serious mode and it worked, but also the movies need to win a lot of money, that's why they changed  the tone of the film to some king of marvel-ite tone. I hope the don't go to that way to replace the tone of DC of jokes and lighter action like Marvel.Yeah it was more of a Wheedon film. However I enjoyed the movie even though it was flawed. The score was horrible though.Snyder did too, actually, admitting has hasn't seen the finished movie...<br><br>#BringZackBack<br><br>#BringJXLBack

Dear Hans,

I am your number one fan. Playing and listening to your music brings on me a sense of ecstasy. When the perfect song hits, an ordinary day becomes extraordinary. Even if I've heard your songs a million times before, they affect me the same way. It's the pulse of the beat, the flow of the chord structure, a repetitive keyboard part, background harmonies or the thump of a bass line.
The overall production of your tracks can bring this euphoria, making everyone wonder how you got the music to work.
I spend hours cataloging albums and genres, creating timelines, lists and graphs, as if trying to solve a physics equation. Simply trying to make sense of it all takes hours. The constant search for a new, essential artist, album or song is something I do, all for the love of music, this is why I know you and Rick Wakeman should join hands and do a project together. I am certain you and Rick have a special bond and are ready to make a great project together.

If we didn't have music, we'd have no purpose,

Kind regards and big hug from me,
Gilberto Palma.

But, I feel compelled to tell you that you have positively impacted my life with your music - which touches my core.
Thank you for creating. Thank you for your vision. And, above all else, thank you for your music which invigorates me. renews me, inspires me, and makes me both smile and cry. Thank you for being.

My boyfriend's birthday is next October 1st, and he is a hugh fan of Hans, his name is Marcos. Is almost impossible to us to go to Hans shows, because of the distance and the money we need to spend to travel to those places, that are really far from our country. I really don't know what I'm asking to you, maybe a greeting, a message from him, something to make Marcos happy, I know he wolud be really happy with any of those simple things. Thank you for read this, and I really apreciate if you can help me. Thanks a lot! Caro.

Namaste Hans!
What an incredible 1st half of the concert last night in Toronto!

I have high sensitivities to sound, lights, smells, and a few other elements.
Just would like to let you know that even though I brought my dark sunglasses for the bit of strobe lights I was expecting, it didn't help too much when some of the numbers in the 2nd half seemed to be bombarded with strobe lights!
It actually didn't leave a good feel, by the end of the concert. I realize it is not all about me, but as we were leaving, my son, daughter and I heard some people in the elevator on the way out, that they were also affected by the overwhelming strobe lights! Lady said she got a headache from it! My son wasn't feeling well, but he came because he loves your music so much, as my daughter.

Anyway Sir, your music is so great, it does not need strobe lights,they actually take away some of the high quality of your music because they are so distracting.

GREAT DRUMMER!!!! OMG!!!! What an amazing energy he has!
Your talks in between the music was GREAT to listen to, and deeply inspiring!

The one piece that brought me to tears was the theme from DeVinci Code, and that was just the violin playing in the beginning, simple and moving!

THANK YOU HANS ZIMMER for your MUSIC, CREATIVITY, and SHARING with the WORLD!!!!

Good Blessings to you and your loved ones, and all the other artists and crew behind the scenes, who make the in front the scenes happen!

Atlanta Concert - Tuesday, July 18th, 2017.

The concert was good last night, but not great. Re: there was a preponderance of bass that "washed out" the sound of all the instruments and detracted from the overall music. Wish I could have told him. The bass was so powerful that my wife's chest actually hurt afterward! Absolutely wonderful music and as a musician, I can really appreciate the talent, but the bass needs to be taken down several notches. Don't know if he'll ever see this. Actually listening to the Da Vinci Code score right now.

Dear Hanz,

I was at the Canandaigua concert last night, and I just wanted to say that your music reached across the world and touched me. I can't believe that a persona such as yourself would appear just an hour away from my tiny home town in rural upstate New York.

It's been my dream to write music for film for a long time, and I'm on my way to Malibu for college to study music. I've been afraid of failure in the impossible music industry, but your powerful concert reminded me that if I don't at least give music a try, I will live an empty life. Just like you said, a musician's life isn't a bad life. The challenge is incredible and the rewards sometimes slim, but in the end, it's a life with meaning, a life with something to believe in. Your music renewed that belief in me, for better or for worse.

I just wanted to let you know that, and thank you for being humble enough to come all the way out to the middle of nowhere just to bring us a little hope in the world.

Dear Hans,

I'm french and drove 400 km to be in Nîmes on june the 24th and I've never felt so lucky than this day.
To see and to hear your musicians and you playing was a dream. I fell in love with your music when I was about 15 and had tears in my eyes when hearing the Rain Man theme.
You're a great composer M. Zimmer and a great man. Respectful to your musicians and audience.

I hope you'll be back in France soon, not just for me but for all those who couldn't see you until then and, even if I have more kilometers to drive, I'll do them easily to have the chance to see you again on stage.

Dear Hans

the experiment whom I have just lived this day was fabulous, you and your orchestra did nothing but climb levels throughout this extraordinary concert and I hope that it will climb of them others during the rest of your round and your life.

During all the concert, I did nothing but admire your work which is stunning like your production and your fastener towards your orchestra and your public .

Pirate of the Caribbean was brilliant especially the solos of Tina Guo, I had even shivers of them on my chair like for Gladiator, Inception, The Dark knight Small channels without forgetting celebrates it King lion where one was pleased immense to hear the voice of Mr Lebo M (Lebohang Morake) at the time of the beginning of the music.

I hope to re-examine you one day on the Belgian territory for your next round while hoping that there is one of them.

I wish you a good wind for your future productions, it was a pleasure of listening to you and to see you in truth even if I were far from the scene and it will be always a pleasure of listening to your musics.

Sincere greetings still a large whole thank you for what you do and courage for the continuation.

Live Tour Sound Levels - Glasgow edition

Leaving this comment here as not sure where else one would feedback on such things but...

I was at the show in Glasgow last night (18/06/2017) and sadly had a similar experience to quite a few of the posters below. The sound levels were really, really off and made the melody inaudible for most of the concert. For the first half of the concert it seemed there was some effort to counteract this (i.e. the pieces would find their level about half way through each one) but the second half of the concert was just a wall of sound. For example, The Wonder Woman Theme ("Is She With You?") was utterly unrecognizable except that Hans Zimmer made reference to it once the piece ended. It made me sad that all the build, nuance and explosive musical climax that HZ and his team are known for were lost in the cacophony.
I left feeling really angry and to be honest angry for the performers most of all. You can see that they play their socks off, are ridiculously talented and love what they do, but they were greatly misrepresented by the poor levels last night.

To be clear, I saw this concert last year in another city and it was amazing. When the music is allowed to shine it is truly wonderful. So my issue was with the poor sound quality rather than the music selection itself. I find it quite shocking that for a tour that has been going for well over a year, with a set running order, talented musicians and crew, and with the technology that we now have, that the sound could be such a disaster.

That being said, if you get a chance go see this tour. The lighting and staging are done well. Hans' anecdotes are charming and the musicians are a joy to watch. When the sound levels are on point the music is powerful and moving, and if you are fan of his body of work you really need to hear Hans Zimmer's compositions live.

Thanks you for cheering me up in London on the 16th June. My Dad had a near fatal heart attack at the age of 85. He's only just alive but insisted I came to the concert at the SSE.

I saw Hidden Figures this weekend and as a former adolescent NASA geek from the 60's I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the stories. There were only two places in the film where the music grabbed my attention. Those times were after John Glenn's lift-off as he climbed into orbit and when he had his ticker tape parade. Can you tell me, is that a snippet of Carmen Ohio I am hearing?" If so, it is a great tribute to Sen. Glenn and his love for the Buckeye State. If not, chalk it up to failing hearing and an vivid imagination.

Having been a member of the OSU Marching Band, I assure you that you did hear the first 5-6 notes of "Carmen, Ohio" (the Ohio State alma mater) during the launch sequence.

Glenn himself went to Muskingum College, about 50 miles away from Ohio State. I don't know what their alma meter is.

Dear Mr Zimmer,

I would also like to join the comments about the concert in Budapest. I traveled with my mother from Novi Sad, Serbia and we bought the best tickets available, since we are both devoted fans. My mother started following Your work since she was a teen from the early 80s and she introduced me to movie scores for the first time when I was a child. Ever since, we listened to every new score with great admiration and excitement and we were hoping to have the opportunity to hear the live performance.

Finally, we bought the tickets for Budapest, but instead of the long anticipated evening filled with divine beauty of music, we were devastated during the second part of the concert.

The first part was truly what You are known for and what people want and expect to hear. I must say that the theme from the Gladiator moved me deeply and it represented the high-peak of the evening. The themes from The Lion King and the DaVinci Code were simply perfect and incredibly emotional as well. I would especially like to praise the solo sections of Ms Tina and Mr Lebo.

From all the magnificent and beautiful themes from King Arthur (which I consider inevitable to perform), Pearl Harbor, Rush, Spirit the Stallion of the Cimarron, The Last of the Samurai and Tears of the Sun and many many others, the setlist of the second part of the concert was a painful disappointment.

Instead of blissful peace it brought nothing but aggression and destruction with that much emphasis on the electric guitar. It is the type of music that goes quite well with the superhero movies, nevertheless we expected more themes with the symphonic orchestra instead of all that electronics. When I came home, the first thing I did was to listen to the good old themes I mentioned above, just to erase the memory of the evening before.

However, I would go to the concert again without a second thought if the setlist would be modified and performed with more acoustic instruments and piano to represent the very best of Your work, which is how You initially won the audience.

All of the above was said and written in hope that You will take these remarks and the comments of Your longterm fans in consideration.

Yours faithfully,
Sara

Thank you for the joy you bring. And for the joy to come, as I'm sure your love of music see no bounds!
And thank you to your musical family.

John
