I just have updated the site with the latest covers ;)so can we assume the official release has been officially put on hold? :(Yeah, and in the case of Rings, nothing surprising considering it's a new sequel of something Hans did...lets be honest, the real question ist not, why hans isnt doing all these movies by himself, but why the producers and directors always go directly to rcp (hans). im pretty sure hans isnt ringing at every producers/directors door and asks if he or his guys can score one of their films....So? He's been doing that since the mid-90s!
He cannot score everything, he's in the middle of 2 films right now. How would he do ?Hans is actually retired composer career little bit. Producers or Directors: Hello Hans? We have a movie Tarzan or Rings or or 13 Hours or  Terminator: Genisys or Divergent or Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters<br>Hans: I have so many composers.. Choose one: Lorne or Benjamin or Tom or.. Rupert Gregson..<br><br>I feel that Hans is don't want anymore.. This is sad for me...Should be interesting, I'm glad Hans keeps an eye on this saga... :)Hello!  <br><br>Could you please tell me if it's possible to use an excerpt (1 minute or 2) from the track "A Dark Knight", included in the soundtrack of the film "The Dark Knight", in a promotional clip, paying for the licensing rights, of course?   <br><br>I hope this message doesn't offend you!   I very much appreciate mr. Zimmer's work!  <br><br><br>Sever Iulian Raileanu<br><br>DOMINO FILM Ltd.<br>59 Dr. Felix Street, district 1<br>Bucharest, RomaniaOh, they were reviewing it before it even came out that low. You get that a lot. It's probably some sort of trolling.
Why only 2 out of 5?? are the fans insane?Just realized that "Eddie jumps the 90m" cue has a different mix on the album than in the movie. In the film there's this great choir section near the end (which works great with everyone standing there with their mouths open). Must've been a last minute addition, a shame really.Hi Hybrid, I recall the complete MOS score streaming on this site at some point. What was the nature of that release? Was is a leak or did you secure some official permission for that?Hello, Hanz and team! Any plan for America and being more specific for México- Mexico´s City? <br><br>It would be a pleasure to have you around here.Hallo Hans, sein Team und sämtliche Musiker, die mit ihm im Studio oder live arbeiten,<br><br>vielen Dank an euch für die bislang überwiegend wundervolle Musik. <br><br>Mit dem Live-Konzert in Hamburg ist für mich einer meiner Lebensträume in Erfüllung gegangen. Dies ist für mich ein Grund, bei euch nachzuhaken, ob die Performance der Konzerttournee in absehbarer Zukunft auf CD erscheinen wird? Ich wäre euch allen noch dankbarer dafür! <br><br>Norddeutsche Grüße aus Hamburg!<br><br>Pascal

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.
