The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmer’s Superman theme, something we haven’t heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer
@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?Ghost in a thing that doesn't have life but does
Which score would that be?Seeing as how Lorne Balfe “leaked” his own score, I wonder if Tom could easily do the same?Haha - honestly though, before I realized this I felt Jablonsky didn't really bind the score together that well with themes and motifs. This is a pretty cool connection and I'm glad he made it.Almost like this was a film score or something! ;)I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

Is there any information yet, if RCP is going to do the Warcraft movie? Release date is currently March 2016.


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-13 22:41:03
I don't see why it would be RCP. Duncan Jones has worked with Clint Mansell and Chris Bacon before; the latter's score for Source Code is actually quite good, and it would be pretty cool if he got the gig. I'd also be more than happy to see one or more composers from Blizzard's team do the movie as well; maybe not five or six of them like there is on the games, but say Russell Brower and maybe one other guy. That would be cool.


Zimson2014-05-14 08:16:00
This movie will be fundamentally different from Moon and Source Code, so it wouldn't surprise me, if they also hire a new composer. I'm fairly sure that the WoW-composers or at least Russel Brower will be somehow involved, but since they never scored such a big-budget movie it's unlikely that they will do it alone.

When do you think will they announce the composer(s)?


trent easton navarro2014-05-14 14:32:02
Still no reason why it should be a RCP composer. There are other composers you know :P

As for the announcement, it varies per film. Still waiting to find out who will score Ridley Scott's Exodus and Michael Mann's Cyber (although that one is rumored to be scores by Atticus Ross or someone from RCP)


Saurabh2014-05-14 17:59:35
I'd love if Harry Gregson Williams reunited with Ridley for Exodus. His work on Kingdom of Heaven was very rich and in my opinion a masterpiece. Correct me if I'm wrong but it didn't go down well with Harry as his music was replaced by other works to some extent. Scott's recent partnership with Streitenfeld is uneven and sub par considering the scores to his previous films like KOH, Gladiator, Matchstick Men, etc.


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-14 18:57:52
Alberto Iglesias will score Exodus... For tax reason... lol


trent easton navarro2014-05-14 21:45:15
Really, Iglesias? That would be a very unusual choice, even for tax reasons. Also any idea than who'll score Cyber?


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-14 22:12:31
That same tax reason is why Lucas Vidal scored the most recent Fast and Furious movie, or why Federico Jusid was originally going to do 300: Rise of an Empire...there's some law that makes it much cheaper for movies shot in Spain to use as many Spanish crew members as possible. I'm guessing this is something similar.

Very interesting and weird pick though. Iglesias is a pretty low-key and experimental type of composer, which strikes me kind of as the exact opposite of what you would want for a big biblical movie like this. Not sure what to think. :|


Saurabh2014-05-14 22:17:28
Has Iglesias done something as big as Exodus previously?


0-cool2014-06-26 10:41:03
unusual choice but I think he'll do great, unless Scott butchers it.

The Guy Below Said that he did the trailer music. and I didn't know that


MacArthur2013-09-26 21:29:54
Mike real quick do you know if there is a way for the songs on the TDKR app to be transferred to mp3. or has it been do cause if that's the case then technically you could have the whole TDKR score.


Mike2013-09-27 01:15:27
If I knew of a way, I'd have those suites by now...lol


Anonymous2013-09-27 01:53:19
You can simply play them whilst running a lead from your iPhone headphone socket to the line-in on your sound card and recording the input signal. Quite simple.


MacArthur2013-09-27 03:13:09
well I know that but the recordings aren't that good I want it to sound like the actual soundtrack recordings.


Anonymous2013-09-27 05:18:11
Then hack into RCP and get the music. There is no way you can make music like this sounds like album masters from a studio!


MacArthur2013-09-27 05:55:14
No I'm talking the tracks, and asking if it is possible to turn them into mp3. Cause in theory it should be possible. but I don't know. If you get what I'm saying.

I think Hans Zimmer is the best composer in the world , his work is pure clasic and beautiful.For me his greatest OST's are from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 , Gladiator , Angels and Demons , Pirates Of The Caribbean. Love you Hans Zimmer , keep up the good work , Greetings from Romania

Rui Lima reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-28 21:59:35
After All!... he is a great composer, not only becose the enormous number of works, but for the quality. Maybe its becose the fact of having some times similar parts between musics that made his original style very its own.
My favourite H.Zimmer's OST's: Gladiator, Davinci Code, Pearl Harbour, Angels and Demons.
I can see his music in many great classical composers works.

Rui Lima reply Replies: 0 || 2011-04-25 12:06:56
to me, hans zimmer is not one of the best composers of today, but it is indeed one of the most prolific, and has a extremely high number of works, wich only few I consider totally classical, and are theese wich I apreciate more.
I like the music but are all, ... very similar, and has score notes that are very muiscal but always the same.
Gladiator has parts almost identical to Gustave Holst's suite "the Planets" in the 1st mov. Mars, the bringer of war, and then appears again in "pirates of the caribbean", i think.
The music could be more orchestrated, and have a orchestra.
