Any news about Hans Next project?Does Hans compose music for releasing as his own records? I wish he'll make someI think BGM stands for any sort of background music, e.g. caffe music, game themes and, sometimes, film scores. But, IMO, "score" sounds way beter than "BGM"<br><br>p.s. Plz, do not my English, imma russian...One last topic I want to cover for this score, and that's the references to past films. I've found quite a few new ones that may be interesting.<br><br>"Today We Hunt" - Reference to "Bumblebee" at the end of the track.<br><br>"History of Transformers" - Reference to "Bumblebee", the end of "Are You Ladiesman 217?", and a sort of rebuilding of the Autobot theme using it's main notes.<br><br>"Two Moons" - Contains the main 2 notes of "Decepticons" repeated through the entire track, and of course elements of "We Were Gods Once".<br><br>"Prime Versus Bee" - Contains the drum beat featured in "Optimus vs Megatron"<br><br>"Your Voice" - Reference to "Optimus", the escalation of notes featured in scenes where Optimus is almost defeated ("Optimus vs Megatron" and the beginning of "I Claim Your Sun"), the 3 notes of "We Were Gods Once" when Optimus is about to be killed, and of course "Arrival to Earth/There Is No Plan".<br><br>"Battlefield" - Basic notes of the end of "You're A Soldier Now" and the Autobot theme in the 3 note horn section.<br><br>"Did You Forget Who I Am" - Autobot theme plays in the build-up before the "You're a Soldier Now" reprise. (Also maybe a hint of "Skorponok" at the end?)<br><br>The rest has already been pointed out on this website.Bring Him Home and Future King are great
The show is very good.we managed to watch the show in two days!the music by Gregson-Williams and Balfe is perfect. The score is some of the best TV music at the moment.going to defiantly buy the album now and see what it’s like2049 is by Ben, confirmed.generalizing all direct and indirects participations in Zimmer's career, I think this role is of Glennie Smith...<br><br>Second half of 1970-forever.@Ben: "Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either."<br><br>The original presentation, of 1994, is not very good to confess. They left out the score to emphasize the songs. However the latest launches "expanded score" and "Legacy Collection" (in my opinion) are among the best as Gladiator, the last Samurai,Prince of Egypt, House of Spirits, Rain Man,<br>Backdraft, regarding Henry,Beyond Ragoon, the Rock, King Arthur, Interstellar, Rush, At worlds End and the Dark Knight (The Collector's version). I like many themes by Hans, but when I come to head the organization factor of the albums most satisfactory these are some of the few that comes to mind.What's the involvement of EW in the Mermaid Suite? I always imagined it that way: Hans being responsible for the first part of the suite, the calmest, Geoff taking care of the piece that corresponds to the moment of the sirens attack and that Eric inserted the choir to finish the composition.
In the last 7 years or so the only Oscar that I think was deserved is Gravity by Steven price. By the way hybrid it was a tough comment for me. Thanks to all people here who think it was.<br>I totally agree that the music fit the movie perfectly Hans always did great job in this but as a standalone music for me and again (for me) the docking in interstellar do all the job on Dunkirk ( I mean suspense) so for me all Dunkirk soundtrack = docking in interstellar.<br>quote: "This score is nothing compared to interstellar or even to POTC 3."<br><br>How do you know or how do you judge? By musical complexity, number of themes, etc.? I think the Dunkirk score perfectly serves the movie - which is what it's supposed to do.<br><br>Hans' last and only Oscar-wining score was Lion King, and that one wasn't so remarkable either - on its own. So it would kind of make sense for a score like Dunkirk to get him the award.<br><br>After all, when it comes to the academy, I don't think they look at a score in isolation - like we do as Zimmer fans - but rather how well it serves the film. If they love a film and let it win best picture and other categories, it's very likely they'll also give it "best original score".Great this is geting a release!<br>I am from Greece and the same is Nikos Mastorakis, the director.<br>He always recalls working with Hans Zimmer and Stanley Myers here.Ultimate masterpiece... 8-) lolVery impressed with the music from this season. Enjoying listening to it.there doesn’t seem to be much of the main theme used ?
man, i think i haven't listened to "A Dark Knight" deep enough. so many things i picked up from listening to it recently. oh by the way, it's Dunkirk that's making me go back and listen to the old scores.One of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 21st C. Mr. Zimmer please make this original London recording available in a cd (320kbps) or a lostless version to be able to enjoy its full beauty. The version on YouTube is just muddy cruddy. And the version on the Prague cd is not a chorus of this caliber. Plz plz plz! Gratefully, Philip...why is Eric Whitacre's credit being omitted?Music is royal and grand and the show is very good. Looking forward to more seasonsGreat score! Lots of fun.

I, personally think that this music is Very Good to say the least. Whether Batman has a main theme or not is irrelevant. Listen to the way the music flows throughout the movies. I personally think that this music COULD stand all by itself without the movie. I listen to Hans Zimmer's music EVERY DAY. I can't get enough of any of his work. His alone, or with other composers. I think that his music enhances the movies...Take a look at The Dark Knight...see how the music introduces and enhances the scenes. Hans Zimmer's work takes a great movie and makes it incredible...I can't imagine The Dark Knight with any music than what has been written.

Yesterday I saw a bootleg which said complete score from Batman Begins. It has more than 50 track 25/25 or something tracks on each disc. It is a fake, it has SFX!!!!

Exactly - Zimmer writes circles around people - it's too bad that he doesn't get the same credit as other such as John Williams who has been stealing from other and himself to make a career

the one with the people actually in it. The full trailer. go to and search for the dark knight they would have it there. also it was played towards the end of the credits in Begins. I have a recording of it on my profile there if you wnna listen for it. and it definitely can stand alone. The soundtrack is a masterpiece. i dont understand why you dont like it. i think its great.

Im from Poland and my english isn't great, but i want to ask about this theme you are talking about. You said that i can hear it in the Dark Knight trailer. I had watched all trailers on the you tube and i can't find it. In wich trailer that main theme is??

thePen13 reply Replies: 0 || 2007-12-26 00:00:00
I think this score is overrated... everyones talkin' about how its the greatest score ever written, please! The score can't stand on its own without the movie. And I don't think James is gettin' enough credit for his contributions either. This soundtrack is good at best!

Mark reply Replies: 0 || 2007-11-28 00:00:00
hey Mike. That is the main theme. It is not featured on the soundtrack. If you want to hear the song though i do have it on my movieweb account. Go to and it will be there. But that is the main theme. Hans Zimmer did not have it in the movie because it was Batman "BEGINS" and he did not earn his theme yet. So that was a feature to get you ready for it.

the greatest score ever from the greatest

composer ever can't wait for The Dark Knight

we all trust you MR. Zimmer

I have a question i've been trying to get answered for a LONNNNGGG TIME!!!!

At the end of the trailer which has the phrase "evil fears the knight," the music is different than Molossus form he soundtrack. Does anyone konw what the Music from the end of that trailer is.

Its been eating me up for months

I bet that the track Vespirtillio was the theme, just to let you know. But, I couldbe wrong. I like the whole track. Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, what is your secret?

Mark reply Replies: 0 || 2007-10-16 00:00:00
The theme comes out for the first time, still incomplete but still heard in the track Molossus. If you have seen the trailer you can hear it very faintly in the background.

Although we had that spout before batman5 i agree with you. Zimmer was dead on in this score. Anyone who is worried about Batmans theme, it doesnt come out until the release of the Dark Knight. Just wait he will not let you down. Zimmer you are the man

batman5 reply Replies: 0 || 2007-07-10 00:00:00
well the main thing that seperates elfmans batman and zimmers is that elfman already has the batman theme in the music. in zimmers batman hasnt "earned" his theme yet. just wait for the dark knight to come out july 18 of next year. zimmer wont let you down. plus the directors view of batman is very different. tim burton had a dark, fantastical batman, which fits elfmans style wonderfully. christopher nolan has a very very dark, realistic batman. which fits zimmer better. its to hard to compare composers works on projects like this when the styles differ as much as they do

this score is deadly the film is the best batman film ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope the next one's as good

and hans no giutar needed. for some reason when it hink of batman, a giutar of any kind does not come to mind. i think you and howard know what you are doing. elfman needs to learn the saying less can be more. always over writing his music. especially percussion. being a composition major in college myself i know this. you and howard are doing a vry wonderful job. looking forward to the dark knight =D

batman5 reply Replies: 0 || 2007-04-18 00:00:00
Hans you are the man. the way you have the batman theme at the end and add to the begins theme. very cool. and your progressions and usage of low brass and percussion always leave me at a place of awe.

i thought the soundtrack was spot on.. it fit the movie perfectly... this was batman begins.. to have a huge grandiose theme tune for him would have been overkill and uncalled for.. the subtle horns and tremelo strings call was perfect... especially because it can be built upon and turned into an epic theme for the next movie... which i'm really looking forward to.

One thing i will say though, Please Please Please add some guitar in the sequels soundtrack... take it up a notch so to speak...

I own several scores and OST's from many movies, and this one is the best. Macrotus is my favorite track from it's sweeping strings to the verbose brass section. Great stuff.

ra's al ghul's theme appears twice. Once in track 3 and again in track 12. It appears during the scene where ra's reappears at bruce's birthday party.

Best CD to buy. All tracks are excellent. Laisurius (track 12) is the best
