Lorne has nothing to do with interstellarGITS 2.0? I hope not.I have no idea why, filmmusicreporter wrote about it...Seriously? Why they make this decision? They want to sound like Interstellar or what?LOL, Lorne is co-composing "Ad Astra" with Max Richter, that guy is everywhere
I think we can call Ian Brown McCarthy the Anti-MacArthur....lol.... Where MacArthur set out to prove everything was by Zimmer, Ian proves everything is by Lorne. ;)<br><br>Kidding, mostly. Lorne's contributions, especially where he has "producer" credits like on this score, are undeniably underrepresented. I've always considered Lorne a co-composer here, just like on Inception, Sherlock Holmes, and Kung Fu Panda 2-3.Not to nitpick, but even "near co-composer" is downplaying Lorne's role IMO; I've had him listed as co-composer in my personal library for a solid year now.<br><br>On a relate note: man, Hans and Lorne make damn good music together.What I want to know is if the album version of Nixon Defeated is the solo Hans alt or notFeels like there are more Balfe credits on this version than on the album (e.g. Status Suite, solo Hans on the album, Hans/LB here). In fact I'd go so far as to label him a near co-composer here, just like Inception and Sherlock Holmes.Any word on where this can be found, or if it actually exists? H-Z (here) is the only place any of these tracks (let alone mention of a complete version of this score) can be found.
Why you haven't update about David Buckley with Angel Has Fallen score yet?Yep, fun (if slight) score to a very fun movie. "Get it On" is a great action cue.It was also one of the first HG-W's scores I ever listened to (way back when!), so maybe it's just nostalgia talking. <br>But it's worth a listen at least.It's a shame no one talks about this score. <br><br>It's a great listen if you love heavily percussive music! <br><br>Not a highlight in HG-W's carreer by any means, but it's a fun ride, and has some neat unique sounding stuff courtesy of Heitor Pereira, as well as plenty of goold ol' MV style synth/orchestra pounding!He returns to the hitman's bodyguard part 2
I was honored, back in 2006, to meet both Nick Glennie-Smith and Harry Gregson-Williams.<br><br>I talked with both about The Rock, and here's what they told.<br><br>Nick & Hans worked very closely on most of their cues. That's why it's so hard to notice any difference between their own styles (and why they share most of the credits).<br>Harry worked separately from Nick & Hans. He remembered working on the San Francisco Chase (though we know Don Harper helped at some point in the process), and on "a lot of the action material from the second half of the movie, once the heroes reach Alcatraz".<br>The credits here tend to prove they were right.<br><br>All the Opening Titles / SEAL Attack is a bit complicated. Hans might have written the theme, but it also might be arranged for pictures by Nick Glennie-Smith (plus there's a lot more going on in these tracks than the man theme alone). So, well, I guess the final result still is a collaborative effort.A brilliant score, no matter what some people might say. Some of the darkest and most beautiful themes by Hans Zimmer were born here, as well as a lot of very exciting and propulsive electronic techniques. <br>Heck, I even like the movie! The score fits like a glove.<br>It helps that I'm a huge Tony Scott fan though.<br><br>Zimmer would even 'steal' from this score quite a bit in some of his later films. The 'Wayne Manor Suite' from TDKR comes to mind, as well as one of the Blade Runner 2049 themes being strangely similar to The Fan's 'Opening Titles' theme, and I'm sure there are other examples.<br><br>I would love for a complete version to be officially released sometime. It's very unlikely, but one can dream...Listen to the first demo at NGS demos album of "The Rock". The opening and SEAL Attack have a few notes from original NGS theme. That's why NGS is credited to it.I remember hearing something about NGS not wanting his name in the opening credits since it was a Hans cue playing. So yeah. I think the opening is really just Zimmer and the NGS credit is a formality since it was supposed to be Nick’s score.I'm sorry, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote...The credit on "SEAL Attack" is HZ/NGS/Stern, not HZ/HGW/Stern. Not sure how I missed that. *facepalm*

And here comes the Lady Gaga watertower hype train again. Three months in advance...for a filmscore...with teasers and premium ultra deluxe editions, minuscule samples, hidden exclusive 128kpbs bonus tracks and probably missing the most important track or theme from the movie...

I mean I am probably gonna love the score but the way watertower promo team works seems more fit for Rihanna then it is for a film score.

Anyway I listen to it and the samples they day it is released.


Mortifer V.2016-01-16 02:01:17
It's two months.

Mike reply Replies: 1 || 2016-01-14 16:12:01
I would love it if this score turns out to be like a genuine battle between Zimmer and Junkie's music in each cue, kinda like how in Batman Begins you can hear JNH start a cue and HZ finish it. Having HZ's superman theme and Junkie's Batman theme play off each other throughout would be awesome.


mpolonest1232016-01-14 16:25:44
Oh god yes!

Considering that they are introducing Wonder Woman, Lex, Doomsday, etc. I'm hoping that they bring in several new themes.

And of course the suites.....

Is the music in this clip the score? teamcoco.com/video/zack-snyder-superman-clip

Definitely !

I waaaant ! :(

Definitely JunkieXL, that.

Any idea if the BvS Comic-Con trailer music was confirmed to be Hans or Junkie?


Ds2016-01-06 19:55:51
It really sounded a LOT like Junkie. Hope it makes it into the film because it's incredibly epic.


JR2016-01-07 11:20:37
I found it terrible... Hope the score will be better


mpolonest1232016-01-07 15:40:23
Normally I'm pretty dismissive about trailer music, this one definitely stood out to me though. It sounds good, a little bit synthetic but I'm sure it's a demo recording.


Memphis2016-01-10 22:41:28
It was both of them *I think* cannot say for sure as I wasn't there, lol. Have been following him on twitter and he said sometime last year "we mixed the trailer music ..." so I assume it was them together. Also read that they wrote new music together for the trailer.

I'm loving it and it sounds fantastic in the cinema trailers.


Mike2016-01-10 23:23:53
Memphis, that was Junkie referring to the first teaser ("Tell me...do you bleed?"). The teaser has long been confirmed to be HZ / JXL. ;)


Ds2016-01-11 17:42:47
I think the new TV spot has definitely some score in it. Sounds a lot like MoS sound palette.

Ooops I'm sorry. I thought the comic con trailer was the first.

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 6 || 2015-12-29 22:00:09
Since it'll be out in less than 3 months, time to launch hostilities... lol


Anonymous2015-12-29 22:56:02
recording sessions plz


Ds2015-12-30 16:09:18
I wonder how it's going to sound. Judging by the trailers, I think of something colder than Man Of Steel, with perhaps more electronics. More Junkie than HZ, actually. I guess we'll know soon enough, shouldn't be long until WaterTower launches the iTunes pre-order :-p

Btw, no Atli this time?


Anonymous2015-12-30 16:32:31
Nor his sister. The vocals are by Dom Lewis. Interesting. "Paranoia" Haha. lol


Edmund Meinerts2015-12-31 17:27:44
What you just described there sounds like a bit of my worst nightmare, Ds, so I hope you're wrong! :P

Have no expectations about this one either way. Doubt I'll enjoy it; perfectly ready to be proved otherwise, though...


Anonymous2016-01-10 21:39:20
anybody else expecting a two-disc release after MoS, TASM 2, and Interstellar?


Mike2016-01-10 21:53:15
I'd this point, yes, I'd be more surprised to see a single disc release than not...

i wonder what type of drum circle musical invention they came up with this time xD

Mike reply Replies: 12 || 2016-01-08 16:18:12
Am I the only one who's noticed a conspicuous absence of interviews / comments from the composers of this project (specifically Zimmer)? Junkie XL has said a few things over the past year, but Zimmer's been nowhere to be found. He was confirmed for the project, then said about a year ago that ideally each new hero would get his / her own themes.

I already kind of figured Junkie would be taking the lead on this score, but do you think we can take Zimmer's lack of comments as his way of trying to pass the torch on for the DC universe? Or is it simply too early for interviews?


0-^-02016-01-08 16:48:36
I say that is actually for the better. Things should always be kept under wraps. Let the final work speak for itself. Why hype it up, or spoil surprises?


Mike2016-01-08 16:59:46
I agree...but I'm just thinking of it this way: if Zimmer's possibly not moved by this project (which his initial hesitance, and now his lack of comments, suggest), and Junkie XL winds up doing most of the legwork, I fear the score will kind of end up "cold" - harsh, aggressive, and manly, but devoid of much emotional core. Don't get me wrong, I like Junkie's stuff on MoS, but if his contributions had taken center stage, MoS would have been a lot less appealing. At least IMO.

I could be thinking way too hard here. We'll have to wait and see. ;)


Ds2016-01-08 17:49:24
Agree with Mike, the absence of hype, interviews, etc. is curious, but that's because the trailers were released much earlier than usual. In the next weeks we should see much more marketing, and we can expect a lot of interviews, score samples, itunes preorder, etc. They're just waiting a bit because firing all your weapons 3 months before the release would be stupid :-p


mpolonest1232016-01-08 18:46:49
It seems (in Zimmers' case at least) that his usual pre-hype for films has slowed considerably since Interstellar. In the amount of projects he's worked on since (Chappie, Le Petit Prince, Freeheld, etc.) there have been little to no interviews from him.

If JXL is in fact heading this though, I will be really interested to see what themes he conjures. As Divergent proved, he can write emotionally stirring music. Unfortunately the studios seem to insist on him writing the same drums/electronics in each of his scores. Maybe here he will have the opportunity to do something diverse.


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-08 20:20:49
The score was completed in August/September...

The film is out in 2 months & a half...


Don't worry, the "hype" is yet to come. And btw Hans really loved working on this one !


Pluto2016-01-08 21:18:04
Hey Hybrid, I know I'm jumping the gun a bit quickly here, so to speak, but what are the chances in your opinion, since you know Hans better than any of us, that he scores the "Justice League" film in November 2017? Zack Snyder is directing it and it seems Hans does like working with him, but then again, I've seen some interviews where Hans states he is not sure he wants to keep scoring superhero films, so do you know much in regard to that film and whether Hans will score it? I know Batman v Superman hasn't even come out yet, but I thought I'd ask this question. XD


Hybrid Soldier2016-01-08 22:52:14
lol you know that I actually tried to bring this up to him, out of curiosity... I got ignored, so no idea !! lol Too early maybe, but I can't imagine he, Junkie & Zack haven't talked about it...


Ds2016-01-08 23:07:25
Hahaha you guys are already speculating on Justice League, but before that we have Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman... for which no music-related announcement has been made. Are they trying to keep everything secret? Or not sure yet which path to follow? Or still trying to persuade Hans & Junkie to manage the whole thing?


Mike2016-01-09 22:22:20
"Don't worry, the 'hype' is yet to come. And btw Hans really loved working on this one !"

The second part of that is good to hear. I just know originally he didn't really want to work on this movie, and I was worried that his lack of any comments so far means he kept those feelings. ;) I wonder, will Superman get a new theme here, like Batman did with the "New Batman Theme / A Dark Knight"? I certainly do hope he decided to employ Superman's MoS theme more unabashedly than in MoS. If we can hear a reprise of "What Are You Going..." in a grandiose rescue or action scene, I'll be a happy guy. ;)

As for Justice League, I wouldn't be surprised if Hans ends up spearheading the project. It seems like they want to give the DC universe musical consistency - something Marvel hasn't been able to say for itself until very recently.



Hybrid Soldier2016-01-09 22:50:38
Even if Hans wouldn't compose "Justice League", Junkie would return for sure...

Let's not forget he worked on MOS and Bat V Sup, but also did 300 ROAE for Snyder (who... actually directed it)...


Mike2016-01-09 22:52:58
I wouldn't be surprised if Junkie were the main guy for Justice League, with Hans giving a roadmap of "this is how you should do this," possibly contributing a main theme and a cue or two, then letting Junkie and co. go to town. ;)


Mike2016-01-09 22:56:15
And for that matter, since Hans did say he wanted each character to have their own themes in B v S, that has to mean one thing: those themes will stay with the characters into Justice League. So presumably, the Hans / Junkie imprint will be there still by the time Justice League rolls around.
