I believe who ever wrote that tweet, is making a mistake.The Hans Zimmer live twitter said the music in the final trailer released yesterday was from Zimmer, was not expecting that. Very heavy rock influence in it."Deadpoople"<br><br>Since the adverts thats all I keep hearing when I hear Deadpool....<br><br>Pity the score meanders...Just noticed that the iTunes link on the Watertower page links to the same album for both the standard and deluxe edition. Any idea why this is, is there a chance they might release some more music down the road?I had pretty much the same impression. It's not bad but it's not a satisfying listening experience.
Ich freue mich schon auf das Konzert und darauf neue Filmmusik-Freaks in Oberhausen oder Köln kennenzulernen! :)Complete ScoreOkay it's been a few days and the score should be out in America too now, right? I saw the movie yesterday and I have to say that it is a very, very good movie. But... I have the tendency to say that if I had not listened to the score before I saw the movie, I would not have noticed the music that much. I mean, the non-score songs play very noticeable, but Junkies (action) cues are very fast paced due to the way the movie is edited. And while this fast-pacing works very well for the storytelling (lots of flashbacks and "wait, let's pause this for a minute"-moments), the music kind of suffers from this. I noticed this in the soundtrack, too... It just feels like the score can't get going. Every time the drums and synths kick in, it's over very quickly. That's such a shame because when you hear Junkies awesome cues, you don't want them to stop. And then, obviously, there is the underscore, which is, well, underscore... It sounds fine in the movie but you probably won't remember any of it. <br>It would've been nice if there was a Deadpool-suite or something, because Junkie created some very nice themes for the character, but it feels like they can't express fully due to the movies tempo.Now i can say Hans need little rest no more Hans after inception, Mr. Hans we want real music and iconic theme's its not about the quantity its about the quality i don't want to see u everywhere and please for god sake stop dum dum dummm dumm, XL i have no idea from where he came, now we will see him in every movie nothing new the same thing over and over again, sorry this is my opinion soundtrack only for John williams and Joe Hisaishi, hans zimmer no more he give the Chance to others like Desplat and giacchino.I like This Soundtrack Of Batman v Superman There only Two Music Release in YouTube,One Is Their War Here Is cool And Men Are Still Good(The Batman Suite) And Most New Theme Is The Batman Suite i Like That One.I Can Wait To See The Movie And To Hear The Soundtrack
Any news about if and how and what Hans is including something from The Last Samurai in his programm? I hope the silence is not to calm everyone down and when it's to late to argue that he couldn't add something in the tour. we NEED to hear something from the Last Samurai. It would be a world premiere and one of his most beautifuls compositions!of course he speaks german, he IS german. but if he speaks during the concert in german or in english. maybe because of the international visitors ;)I feel like some of the music from Kai's fight scenes, especially with Oogway, are missing.He speaks German.<br>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKuMtGSJ7BkIt'll be interesting to see if he's speaking German while tourung through Germany... ;)
Please come to south Africa cape town.hans your the bestI saw it too and it's almost certainly false. I'm sure Gareth will have Desplat compose for the sequel too.paris is already sold out!!!<br>cannot waitRendez-vous &#224; Paris le 23 Avril !https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKuMtGSJ7Bk

Mini biography from IMDB

German-born composer Hans Zimmer is recognized as one of Hollywood’s most innovative musical talents‚ having first enjoyed success in the world of pop music as a member of The Buggles. The group’s single Video Killed the Radio Star became a worldwide hit and helped usher in a new era of global entertainment as the first music video to be aired on MTV.

Zimmer entered the world of film music in London during a long collaboration with famed composer and mentor Stanley Myers‚ which included the film My Beautiful Laundrette. He soon began work on several successful solo projects‚ including the critically acclaimed A World Apart‚ and during these years Zimmer pioneered the use of combining old and new musical technologies. Today‚ this work has earned him the reputation of being the father of integrating the electronic musical world with traditional orchestral arrangements.

A turning point in Zimmer’s career came in 1988 when he was asked to score Rain Man for director Barry Levinson. The film went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year and earned Zimmer his first Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Score. The next year‚ Zimmer composed the score for another Best Picture Oscar recipient‚ Driving Miss Daisy‚ starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.

Having already scored two Best Picture winners‚ in the early ’90s Zimmer cemented his position as a pre-eminent talent with the award-winning score for The Lion King. The soundtrack has sold over 15 million copies to date and earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Score‚ a Golden Globe‚ an American Music Award‚ a Tony and two Grammy Awards. In total‚ Zimmer’s work has been nominated for 7 Golden Globes‚ 7 Grammys and seven Oscars for “Rainman”‚ “Gladiator”‚ “The Lion King”‚ “As good As It Gets”‚ “The Preachers Wife”‚ “The Thin Red Line‚” “The Prince Of Egypt” and “The Last Samurai.”

With his career in full swing‚ Zimmer was anxious to replicate the mentoring experience he had benefited from under Stanley Myers’ guidance. With state-of-the-art technology and a supportive creative environment‚ Zimmer was able to offer film-scoring opportunities to young composers at his Santa Monica-based musical ’think tank.’ This approach helped launch the careers of such notable composers as Mark Mancina‚ John Powell‚ Harry Gregson-Williams‚ Nick Glennie-Smith and Klaus Badelt.

In 2000 Zimmer scored the music for Gladiator‚ for which he received an Oscar nomination‚ in addition to Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Awards for his epic score. It sold more than three million copies worldwide and spawned a second album “Gladiator: More Music From The Motion Picture‚” released on the Universal Classics/Decca label. Zimmer’s other scores that year included Mission: Impossible 2‚ The Road To El Dorado and An Everlasting Piece‚ directed by Barry Levinson.

Some of his other impressive scores include Pearl Harbor‚ The Ring‚4 films directed by Ridley Scott; Matchstick Men‚ Hannibal‚ Black Hawk Down and Thelma & Louise‚ Penny Marshall’s Riding In Cars With Boys and A League Of Their Own‚ Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance‚ Tears Of The Sun‚ Ron Howard’s Backdraft‚ Days Of Thunder‚ Smilla’s Sense Of Snow and the animated Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron for which he also co-wrote four of the songs with Bryan Adams‚ including the Golden Globe nominated “Here I Am.”

At the 27th annual Flanders International Film Festival‚ Zimmer performed live for the first time in concert with a 100-piece orchestra and a 100-piece choir. Choosing selections from his impressive body of work‚ Zimmer performed newly orchestrated concert versions of Gladiator‚ Mission: Impossible 2‚ Rain Man‚ The Lion King‚ and The Thin Red Line. The concert was recorded by Decca and released as a concert album entitled "The Wings Of A Film: The Music Of Hans Zimmer."

In 2003‚ Zimmer completed his 100th film score for the film The Last Samurai‚ starring Tom Cruise‚ for which he received both a Golden Globe and a Broadcast Film Critics nomination. Over the past year‚ Zimmer has scored Nancy Meyers’ comedy Something’s Gotta Give‚ the animated Dreamworks film‚ A Shark’s Tale (featuring voices of Will Smith‚ Renee Zellweger‚ Robert De Niro‚ Jack Black and Martin Scorsese)‚ and most recently‚ Jim Brooks’ Spanglish starring Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni (for which he also received a Golden Globe nomination). His upcoming projects include Paramount’s Weatherman starring Nicolas Cage‚ Dreamworks’ Madagascar and highly anticipated Warner Bros. summer release‚ Batman Begins.

Zimmer’s additional honors and awards include the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in Film Composition from the National Board of Review‚ and the Frederick Loewe Award in 2003 at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. He has also received ASCAP’s Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement. Hans and his wife live in Los Angeles and he is the father of 4.
