When Will Complete Motion Picture ScoreA total revelation about Wallfisch "Horse Theme" (AKA K/Joe's theme) and its relation with original Tears in the Rain.<br><br>http ://www.mundobso.com/bso/blade-runner-2049Just listen to "Invasion Begins", it's almost like a small suite of Shen's theme.The only MV/RC composer I ever would want to see work on James Bond is John Powell. He's more than capable of doing the sort of cool, suave, jazzy sound that Bond needs. Beyond that...maybe if Zimmer was able to go way, way, *way* back to A League of Their Own mode, that could be neat, but otherwise MV/RC style is simply not a good fit for Bond.<br><br>The Goldeneye score SUCKS. The Thomas Newman ones are only OK. Bring David Arnold back. I have spoken.Saw the movie over the weekend.The music was the best thing about the movie.not the best but the score made it 1000 times better for sure
yeah!!! He was amazing!!! After Dunkrik the best movie in 2017 (for me)Skarsgard really nailed that scene, it was the scene which made it clear how different his Pennywise is from Tim Curry's.Does the blu-ray come with a CD or digital download? Or do you have to buy the album also.Time To Float is sooo strong :-) And a nice Scene btw :-)All i'd say its worth it in a complete score is We Have To Go film version, and maybe some snippets of Seglass and Merlin's Staff variations.<br><br>Other than that, we got more music in the soundtrack than in the film since most was cut off.
Everybody is talking about Shen's Theme. I just can't figure out what his theme really is.<br>Could someone please note where in wich song and at what time his theme appears?<br><br>Thanks very much!mpolonest123 - definitely sounds like it might be inspired by it. I heard the "glockenspiel roll" employed by Bellis used in the track "Deadlights" as well. If these things are intentional nods, then it's pretty cool that the score at least acknowledges the past.I don't know if anybody stayed behind long enough to find out given that the only thing waiting at the end of the credits is one last Pennywise laugh and "IT: Chapter 1". I'd assume "Georgie's Theme" played next.Seriously, I didn't catch very much at all that was left out of the soundtrack....I DID hear alot of repeated tracks in the movie, however...So I can't say what would be notably absent. Anybody got a good example?Look at the amazing "Score A Film Music Documentary" with Hans, John Powell, Heitor Pereira, Trevor Rabin and many others composers ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K6RwDM8VFE
Well... Waymann and LP are The only ones to refer to Djwadi...<br><br>And yet no one shouted:<br><br>"Amazing!" "Revolutionary!" "I can die tomorrow, my life is complete!"<br><br>Another dropmic from Hybrid !Dudes, the score is 2h10 long, I think it is yet a lot much complete than usual !Too much Lorne Balfe talk on this site. He'll never be as good as Steve, so let's talk about Steve!<br><br><br><br>Relaaaaax, I'm kidding. They're both awesome. The best, aside from Hans.<br><br>Let's discuss this thing though .....When, for the love of God, we will finally see an MV/RC composer working on a James Bond movie. Just imagine the Bond theme, BUT done by Steve Jablonsky! It will be beyond EPIC. I know the Bond producers are very strict when it comes to the scores, but after listening to the Skyfall score, I have a feeling that an MV/RC composer can really do great things with Bond. And by the way, unlike some other Bond fans I love Eric Serra's score for GoldenEye. It's freakin awesome!@Score God - I'm not entirely sure on how this process works, but since you obviously are, I'm glad you tried to clarify it. With that out of the way - I agree, there's no need to be harsh about it. You can't expect everyone to have a clue about how this works. <br><br>What I really want to see from the complete score is the film version of We Have to Go.

Finally end titles included for this movies

Laurens reply Replies: 1 || 2017-07-21 09:33:54
Very strange that the iTunes release does not contain track 11 (End Titles). I haven't checked for other countries, but at least that's the case in the Netherlands.


Laurens2017-07-21 09:40:17
Hmm never mind they just updated it it seems...

Catastrophic Jones reply Replies: 0 || 2017-07-21 02:14:21
Very interested with this one. Normally I stray away from the war movies from recent years but the fact that Nolan considered this a story worthy enough to make into a film makes it a must see in my book. Chris has that style of elegance and intelligence in his films, while also being capable of delivering a full on action powerhouse that easily rivals Michael Bay. (Seriously, how is that guy still allowed to make 'films'?) Hans' score is no exception. I can understand why it may cause some people to turn away but personally, for me if something works for the film it is intended for, the composer has succeeded in his job. Not every score has to be an engaging hundred piece orchestra and an ambient-electronic film score is nothing new, it's an approach that has been around for decades! The way of cinema isn't being destroyed by it. It's simply another way to tell a story. I personally feel this music will best suit the film based on what I've heard so far and even as a stand alone listening experience I love it. That tense feeling that dread and doom is near, that I am about to go to war against someone or something. Sounds like he took the feel of Interstellar if it wasn't a space film, the ambiance of Inception and effects from Inferno. Supermarine is easily my favorite, but I do like Variation 15 and End Titles a lot as well. Just to give you an idea, I once use to exclusively listen to only orchestral music. Me several years ago would've probably hated this kind of score but instead of ignoring it and turning away I began to open myself to other styles. I stopped holding music to a certain set of expectations. Now I've discovered some very incredible and unique stuff out there, and not just in terms of music. Give it a chance, if the first listen doesn't grab you try a few more. Only then can you decided with a definitive stance. Worst case scenario, there's always the next Hans Zimmer score to enjoy.

Truly unique soundtrack

Mike (OTM) reply Replies: 6 || 2017-07-20 03:22:36
So here's what I'm expecting:

—Lorne Balfe's name will be on most cues, and he'll have at least a couple cues without Hans' name at all
—the "beautiful" parts of the score will be the Elgar adaptations by Wallfisch
—Hans' music will work wonders as an accompaniment to the film, but be an underwhelming solo listen
—the cues in the film will be substantially recut compared to what the album gives us
—in the future, it will be difficult to tell what's by Zimmer here and what's by the other guys

Thoughts?


Waymann2017-07-20 08:44:54
Well you are right about the second, fourth thing you are saying.


AndrewM2017-07-20 08:58:30
Mike - good points . Definatly had a lot of Balfes touches on the score . Bits of 13 Hours . The Elgar variations aren't that original . The Original Elgar is better . BUt the score is great to the film .


badbu2017-07-20 09:01:52
Lorne is a King too :-)


James2017-07-20 22:17:21
- I find it difficult. Lorne joined the project in the last two months of producing the film.
- I agree. And the reviews that came out even before the official debut confirm that.
- I hope it is so.
- Those who watched the movie have already confirmed that.
- Meh. But I do not doubt it.

---------

I waiting for tomorrow to listen.


James2017-07-20 22:35:43
@AndrewM You're not so wrong. I always imagined this score as something reminiscent of Black Hawnk Dawn, in the same way as 13 Hours is.

It's NOT the same! Similar but not the same and it's not just in a different pitch, in the clip it builds and builds and it gets faster and faster. It seems like a lot of stuff were cut out.

It just leaked. Does anybody know where to listen to it?


Jordan2017-07-20 13:41:13
I listened to part of the CD, it seems particular and some sound design.

I'll listeting to the full album tonight to have a real opinion on the score.


Waymann2017-07-20 13:53:14
Wow, Elgar's theme is all over the place. Don't recall hearing it so much while watching the film. Thought it was only going to be in track 8 and 10.


George2017-07-20 14:07:20
Just finished listening to the whole thing. Much more entertaining than I expected, to be honest.


badbu2017-07-20 14:14:43
WOW! The Score is amazing!!!!!!!


Ahmad 2017-07-20 14:25:04
Can anyone confirm if "The Mole" is the music from the prologue? (If you've seen it of course). I only want to listen to that since I've heard it already.


Ahmad2017-07-20 14:50:04
Haven't listened to it in full. Prologue music is not on the album. I'm very disappointed. It was one hell of a track.


Edgar2017-07-20 14:51:03
Just finished aswell, and i simply can't understand what is so amazing or entertaining at all?!

Track 01 - 03 are unbelievable boring sound design/effects, like an 13 minute intro to the ugly track 04 (supermarine). track 05 - 08 are boring and sound-effects aswell. track 08 has at minute 4 an interesting part, where edward elgars theme pops out, but that's it. curious to hear and see that scene in the movie. track 09 (the oil) is super-ugly, almost more then "supermarine" - wow! the highlight of the score is then track 10 "variation 15", which isn't even a zimmer cue and also a huge inspirated and variated cue from edward elgar. the last track sums everything up, there is a mix of electro sound effects with edward elgars music and again some supermarine and the oil parts.

i can't describe how much dissappointed i am, this is super-super-ugly. i remember when hans made the joker theme how punkish and ugly he stated that cue, but this one here is simply terrific ugly - the whole score! i don't know, this has nothing to do with film music anymore. it sounds for me like a frustrated zimmer who wants to prove, that he can bring up anything out, and people will kiss his a** and say how amaziiiiing this is. i'm sorry for my harsh words, i'm just so dissappointed here. i've considered myself as a zimmer-addictive, but here with this score, i had to choke up, it was that bad. i was so happy it ended. oh lord, where's my hans, where's my zimmer...


Waymann2017-07-20 15:04:11
The prologue is also not a scene from the actual film.


babdu2017-07-20 15:08:29
@Edgar Yes, it is not the best score from Hans but ugly? What do you think about the interstellar score? this was a bad score (for me)...i like this score very much!


Medigo2017-07-20 15:13:14
only listened to the first track
saying that its just soundeffects is doing the music disservice


badbu2017-07-20 15:18:23
But hey, Steven Price gets an oscar for his "sound" Score Gravity :D


Waymann2017-07-20 15:21:37
Ugh I hated that gravity score, just awful and I even like those kind of scores. That oscar win was out of place.


badbu2017-07-20 15:24:00
@Waymann YES! 100% right!!! At the Oscar Night i was like this -> oO WTF?!?!? :D


Medigo2017-07-20 15:27:41
Music can come in many forms
Gravity is a soundtrack, whether you like it or not.
Admittedly this score is not grabbing me very much. its very moody and plodding. (probably fits the film)
but to dismiss it because of how it sounds is rubbish


Kusi2017-07-20 16:25:06
As for Gravity: My first reaction about the film music Oscar was: WTF? BUT never judge on a score before you watched the movie. This is a perfect example for that. After I watched the movie I immediatly bought the score and it's still one of my favourites.


Ahmad2017-07-20 16:44:38
Gravity... one of the most creative scores. I haven't listened to the whole score on its own, but whenever I watch sequences from the movie, the score impresses me more than it did before.
I did listen to "The Mole" and did remind me of Gravity.


Mike (OTM)2017-07-20 17:01:48
Hmmm, so this is a much shorter album release than Interstellar. I hope we don't have another No Time for Caution situation!


Mike (OTM)2017-07-20 17:20:54
The differing track times here and above tell me the CD is probably crossfaded, while the digital version has the tracks extended to remove the crossfades.


ss2017-07-20 17:26:50
Trailer Music better than soundtracks lol


Waymann2017-07-20 17:32:08
First watch the film then listen to this score. Thank me later. No way you will like this score before you see the film.

Everan reply Replies: 0 || 2017-07-20 16:39:28
This is like the son of Hans Zimmer and David Julyan. Home, around the 4:00 minute mark reminds a lot of The Descent, but with a tiny bit of Zimmer's Interstellar touch.

It's definetely not what I expected, but I'm liking. And pretty sure it works amazingly with the film, which is really the main purposed of the score.

T-Mann036 reply Replies: 1 || 2017-07-20 15:47:53
Since I cannot access the vote on this site, I have to say that the Dunkirk soundtrack is as epic as Inception (another film by Chris Nolan). Despite the 11 tracks, that doesn't stop me from enjoying Hans' musical prowess. Overall, I have to give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.


badbu2017-07-20 16:04:25
Yep. For me it is 4.5 too!

I found on a reliable online store for books, films and music the track lengths. But the one for Supermarine is just a few seconds shorter than the runtime for the digital single. But of course the file on the cd different. This seems official to me.
It's is 53:53 min. long.

I'm wrong it's 59 min. in total.


badbu2017-07-20 11:27:41
Cool! Thanks :-)


Ahmad2017-07-20 11:51:03
I've been waiting for the runtime, thanks. I expected it to be longer. Oh well. We were spoiled with Interstellar, now he's back with the Inception-like release. I don't expect a digital deluxe either.
It's interesting that Supermarine is the longest track on the album.


Waymann2017-07-20 11:53:39
Supermarine was cut into pieces and put all over the film. But I'm sure in the movie it sounded different.

Antovolk reply Replies: 0 || 2017-07-20 00:52:24
Seen the film twice. I'm now even more curious how the album will handle it. I listened to Supermarine a fair number of times after last week, so I had it fairly fresh in mind...but the sound editors don't present anything as you hear on the album. Take Supermarine - that 8 minute track is sped up, slowed down, chopped and pasted all throughout the entire runtime. Listening to it on its own is probably like - an an analogy - watching The Air sections of the film as one without intercutting to The Mole and The Sea. I'd imagine the rest of the score is similar in this way in terms of how the album will present it.
*** EDITED ***

SmartGuy reply Replies: 12 || 2017-07-19 12:21:30
Well, just watched it. The movie as itself with Hans' music background is great. But it's really more about the sound effects and tick-tock thing, not so much about melody; which btw fits the movie perfectly, but as a standalone... Hmm, not so sure. When it comes to melody, there is pretty much just two scenes. Don't expect too much more then what you heared in Supermarine.


AndresM2017-07-19 14:46:03
Saw the film today and it was amazing . Zimmer's score is truly amazing. Lorne Balfe is credited as Score Producer . They did an amazing job


badbu2017-07-19 15:04:53
can't wait!!! :-)


PBudi2017-07-19 15:17:37
What does a score producer do ?


badbu2017-07-19 15:28:18
Lorne is doing the additional music.

A "additional" composer is brought on board to compose a cue (or cues) that is/are in a completely different style from the rest of the film.


PBudi2017-07-19 15:31:59
Additional music is a wrong credit . In the film it says Score produced by. He is not listed as an additional composer


badbu2017-07-19 15:38:08
mhh okay..maybe he is doing the mastering etc?


Maximouss862017-07-19 15:53:49
i just saw Dunkirk too, and i m waiting for the album because :
1- the music is great
2- there will be suites in it
(for instence Supermarine wasn't in the movie score, well, you know : we hear a bit of the begining and of the end of the music, but not the full music.


Mike (OTM)2017-07-19 16:58:14
In the past when Lorne has been a score producer, it's meant that he's worked with Hans to formulate the sound and instrumentation palette of the score (in general, "how" should the score sound?) and has contributed one or two themes in addition to the ones Hans had done.


Hybrid Soldier2017-07-19 18:58:13
Score producer, additional music, co-composer... Whatever, HZ & LB work together, that's all you need to know, call this what you want...

In the case of Dunkirk, as I explained Lorne did some "handholding" in the last month of scoring while was starting to get really busy with the tour, because things kept changing until the very end.


Medigo2017-07-19 19:52:11
ugh suites
I guess nobody cares for those who just want to have music directly from the film


Max Potcats2017-07-19 22:25:11
Well, Tick-Tock, Murph, Day One from Interstellar, or Earth and Arcade in Man of Steel, or even TIME from inception are suites, so I think it can't hurt to have some on an album, waiting for the complete score in the worst case.


Waymann2017-07-19 23:33:37
I'll admit that I'm one of the first people to whine about the fact that it's not the complete score they release for official albums. But in case of Dunkirk I don't mind actually how the official release is going to turn out,

I just saw this masterpiece and honestly I wouldn't call Zimmers work for this film a score in the first place. A lot of it is sound design, but oh boy this was so very well done. It's loud indeed but never too much and sometimes the music was radical considering this is an WOII film. I'm looking forward to hear how they will make an official soundtrack release of this film. Sure all those tracks will be suites on the album because of the non linear storytelling. I don't know if a recording sessions soundtrack would be nice to listen to, so suites for this album will do the score justice I think. Also the Nimrod piece is outstanding, a lot was changed and sounds very Zimmerisch. Although Wallfish was behind this.

Mephariel reply Replies: 7 || 2017-07-18 03:34:45
This review caught my eye:

"It’s aided greatly by a Hans Zimmer score that knows when to pound us with percussion and when to let the strings go soaring. (There’s a moment toward the end of the film that’s so gloriously old-fashioned and sweeping that it calls to mind the propaganda-film-within-a-film in “Their Finest,” another great tale that touches on the Dunkirk rescue.)"

First time I see "old-fashioned" used to describe Dunkirk's score.


theGordo2017-07-18 05:09:30
I would have to say that's because the "moment towards the end" uses the track "variation 15" which is pretty old-fashioned.


EoinC2017-07-18 15:56:07
My guess is that it's going to reference Elgar's "Enigma", which has 14 variations.


Ahmad2017-07-18 16:34:31
No guesses needed :) It is confirmed that Variation 15 (Dunkirk) is based on Nimrod by Edward Elgar which plays towards the end of the movie.


Waymann2017-07-18 16:49:28
Can't find it again, but yesterday I saw a tv spot which I'm sure of it featured this track. It sounded a bit different and heavier. But definitely had the same melody as Nimrod. Although i'm a bit disappointed that Nolan chose this music for the film, it's a bit cliché isn't it ? But i'll admit for me it has a very British feel to it, so again it will work out great in the film.


Ahmad2017-07-18 17:19:55
Well, if it makes you feel better about it, they didn't just pin drop the music. They changed it quite a bit so it almost becomes unrecognizable. Listen to Nolan's interview on ClassicFM if you can. He talked about it and about the score.


Ds2017-07-18 17:21:01
On watertower's website, if you click on the iTunes logo, a menu opens with 3 choices: 'Standard', 'Deluxe' or 'Streaming'.

But I think it appears like this by default on watertower's website, Wonder Woman also has a 'Deluxe' button.


isildur2017-07-19 08:04:35
Yes. As Nolan's interview on ClassicFM is really worth listening to get an insight into how and why the score is the way it is.

badbu reply Replies: 2 || 2017-07-18 21:27:50
okay...now i can't wait for the score!!!

THE GOOD:

Casting was perfect, the lesser known actors held their own weight against some of the veterans.

The cinematography was fantastic, you really felt completely immersed in the movie.

Hans Zimmer's score was oscar-worthy.

The movie will leave you on the edge of your seat throughout.

THE BAD:

The storyline is not always linear which was confusing.

Dialogue was sometimes hard to hear (but not necessary)


George2017-07-19 01:28:49
In what way was the score Oscar worthy? I believe you, I'm just dying to find some concrete details of what this score sounds like. Ostinato strings? Booming percussion? Is there a ton of synth? I guess I could be patient for Thursday night lol

no full orchestra, yes. but orchestral instruments experimenting with the ticking/rising motif.

the thing is - there's no real theme/melody until the end credits roll. again - in context it's fantastic, out of context though, you be the judge

It's only three days until the movie premiere, and the score has not leaked yet, and probably won't. We don't even have the track times yet. What happened? In the earlier days the score would typically leak a week before its release.


SmartGuy2017-07-16 18:04:41
Yeah, my words. I think it will eventually leak maybe like one day before....


Ahmad2017-07-16 18:32:07
Looks like they're doing a good job at keeping the score on lock. No info on run time and it's not available to pre-order on digital platforms. I'm really surprised that they even released a track before July 21!


Waymann2017-07-16 23:18:46
They just want the audience to go in without knowing too much about the film. Also the trailers didn't show that much (luckily we didn't get 5 trailers like most Hollywood garbage gets these days.) they also used the same footage for the tv spots. They seems very keen on what footage gets out. I'm seeing the film on wednesday. Can't wait for some new Nolan + Zimmer.

An IGN'S review:

"Moments of eerie silence are violently broken by thunderous walls of sound – piercing gunfire and screeching Spitfires. The sound design is incredible, and I spent entire scenes forcibly pressed into my comfy IMAX seat. This is only heightened by Han Zimmer’s colossal score, which plays a crucial role in making Dunkirk feel so intense and suspenseful. (I even laughed a couple of times, unintentionally, because I didn’t quite know how else to cope with the mounting tension.)

But amidst the sound and fury, Dunkirk possesses a meditative quietness. There can’t be more than a handful of pages of dialogue scattered within its 106-minute runtime. It’s a bold decision, creating a starkness at the level of plot and character, but it never bothered me in the slightest such is the quality of filmmaking and acting on show."


SmartGuy2017-07-18 19:03:24
It's really getting weird. I'm going to see the movie in not even 15 hours and I still did not listened to the soundtrack, which is still secretely hidden in secluded place of WaterTower's chamber of music.

Some reviewer stated that the whole movie is accompanied with score, from beginning to end. Don't know if this is true but then there is no way the whole score is going to be cramped into 10 tracks for it's official release. Still wondering if we will get a Digital Deluxe version.


Iamtommie2017-07-18 09:56:24
Maybe the tracks are very long? He did it with Crimson Tide & Angels & Demons.
Hope this is true!


Waymann2017-07-18 10:10:13
Nah don't think 100 minutes of score fit on a physical CD... Anyway going to see the film tomorrow, really excited. Most people praise Zimmer his work for this film but don't know for sure if it will work as a stand alone listening experience. Which is good in a way because sometimes film score fans seem to forget that scores are made to work in a movie in the first place and not just to please you for is stand alone listening experience like other music genres.


badbu2017-07-18 11:22:22
@Waymann 100% right!!!


MrZimmerFan2017-07-18 12:59:03
The people says is most sound design, but FITS the movie perfectly and captures the restless pacing


Ahmad2017-07-18 16:38:30
There's big chance there won't be a digital deluxe. This seems like a release similar to Inception track number wise. The vinyl version which is a double LP release has the same exact playlist, so it might be an indication that the score is not short but we might not all of the music.

Ahmad reply Replies: 1 || 2017-07-17 11:18:52
So... It is confirmed (by Nolan himself) that track 10. Variation 15 (Dunkirk) is indeed based on Edward Elgar's Nimrod and orchestrated by Benjamin Wallfisch. It's not a suite, it's in the movie. To anyone expecting a melodic theme, that's as melodic as it will get, the rest of the score will be more experimental.


James2017-07-17 14:51:39
I already knew it. BRAAAAAMMM!

Hybrid,

Did Zimmer stop releasing the Z+ apps? I really loved the Inception app and liked the concept behind the TDKR one. Would love to see something interactive like that as opposed to trying to promote an album and headphones no one uses.

Unpopular opinion: Steve Mazzaro & Andrew Kawczynski are the worst things happened to Hans Zimmer


Steve2017-07-14 23:10:51
anyone who enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Chappie, or The Bible, Man of Steel, or The Lone Ranger scores would disagree ;)


Mephariel2017-07-14 23:44:11
I agree. I usually dislike any influence from Mazzaro & Kawczynski. I did like The Lone Ronger, The Boss Baby, Man of Steel, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But I felt like I like the parts that sounds the least like Mazzaro and Kawczynski.



Petrews2017-07-14 23:49:10
Agree - Hans has worked with so many talented people but not them. Great seeing Balfe back with the maestro


James2017-07-15 01:06:58
The Bible and Chappie were Zimmer's weak efforts. BvS is a cool "epic" score but very disappointing when we look back and see all the work he developed in TDK trilogy and even the results obtained by other composers in the same genres now and in the past. The fact is that HZ needs to abandon this "new style" that he is trying to develop or even follow. Since other composers have recently worked hard with this type of "ambient music".

Early reviews of Dunkirk point out that the score is effective in the film and that it probably will not function as an isolated listener. Which is good and bad at the same time.

But let's wait before judging

@James

Everything I'm reading about Dunkirk and those reviews that mention the score are glowing, to say the least. Which review(s) suggest the score would not be serviceable apart from the film?

Personally, I like Andrew and Steve's stuff! Esp Chappie, The Bible and TASM2. Also arrangements from Interstellar.


James2017-07-15 22:51:01
Yep.

The reviews that come out indicate that the score works very well in the film, some even elevate it to its protagonist position. However, they also say that it is an experimental score and they compare it to the work that Johansson has developed in films with "The Arrival". It is electronic for the most part, and some even claim that the only truly melodic part comes at the end of the movie, in the final credits.The reviews that come out indicate that the score works very well in the film, some even elevate it to its protagonist position.

Oops!
Connection problems...


Mephariel2017-07-15 23:25:25
Honestly, if it works that well in the film, then I will have no problem with the score. At the end of the day, Zimmer's number 1 job is to make sure the score works well with the film, not as an isolated experience. There are plenty of Zimmer scores out there that works well in the film and as a isolated experience.


James2017-07-16 00:16:48
I know I know..
I'm not criticizing.
I only have one foot behind.
But ok.
It will be a good one.

Hey guys,
Could someone define the role of a Andrew Kawczynski and Steve Mazzaro as additional composers please?
I'm not sure to understand their investment in these scores.

Another Great Work For Hans Zimmer And Works Again With Christopher Nolan In This War Film Dunkirk. The Track "Supermarine" Is An Intense Best Track I Ever Hear

I Got A Question: Does Lorne Balfe Is Going To Be Additional Music Or Music Producer? Because The IMDb Music Department Say That.

I can't even be the only one here who likes Supermarine? It felt very tense, fast paced, and had a panicked vibe to the entire track. It will sound better after the movie is released, and we have seen the scene this is paired with.


Brent2017-07-11 23:19:10
I agree. Though it's not very inventive or anything new in style, it's still very enjoyable and I suspect it will fit the film nicely.

the track is amazing! so simple but so good!
