amazon.co.uk:<br>The latest blockbuster from SF maestro Christopher Nolan is one of the most widely anticipated movies of the year. <br><br>Reunites the acclaimed director with his composer of choice, Academy-Award Winner Hans Zimmer. His list of celebrated scores includes 'Batman Begins', 'The Dark Knight', 'Inception', 'Man of Steel', 'Gladiator', 'Black Hawk Down' and 'The Last Samurai'. <br><br>This powerful and evocative music is a must-have for all fans of the most in-demand composer in Hollywood and for collectors of classic film scores.Fast 6 was also handled by Lorne & his guys...<br><br>And Iglesias on a big epic film by Ridley Scott ? LOLHybrid, I'm really interested in how they put together this score. It's a great score. Do they all toss in ideas? Do some people start cues, others finish? Did Hans & John sit down and write the themes first? It'd be cool to see any detailed articles or anecdotes about it.<br><br>It's one of my favorite recent RCP scores and not a whole lot of interviews or interesting reads about it compared to, say, Man of Steel.<br><br>Is there anyway you can dl this?Iglesias usually is a good composer, I wonder why such a saving from HGW was necessary.
I think Lucas Vidal On Fast 6 And Javier Navarrete on Wrath Of The Titans are really good score. They are very good composers, and the proof is that both have written some amazing scoresRidley Scott really needs to get his sh*t together.Well, I'm pretty sure that he would not lie when saying we wouldn't hear any of the score until the movie releases..Fair enough. I wonder if the difference in styles of both composers will be audible. 30 minutes is quite a lot of music, and I guess most of it is gonna play in prominent scenes...<br><br>Seriously, Ridley Scott needs to find a good composer and stick to him, because the last few years have been... hum... (with the exception of The Counselor, which was really cool).Well the scores are completely different, the teams & all... Exit Henry Jackman & James McKee Smith, welcome Lorne, Dom & Paul Mounsey... But yeah I agree, just like Begins sounds more collaborative than TDK...
Completely agree. This soundtrack album is a real pleasure to listen to, while the first one... not so much imo.this score feels a lot more cohesive than the first one. anyone else feel that way too? the first one felt like it had 2 different sounds, the Powellish stuff and the Zimmerish stuff, but this one is more "together" and has a unified sound all throughout.Well... maybe.  The brief bit that opens it is unidentified, as is the piece that beings at 2:00 and continues until the familiar teaser piece begins.  Everything else though has been identified as not Zimmer.as for the previous comment, it was percussion along the deshi basara mold, nothing very excitingIglesias was only hired for his nationality, like most spanish composers on big Hollywood films... Since the films are partly shot in Spain, they pay less taxes with that (think Navarette on Wrath of the Titans, Lucas Vidal on Fast 6, Banos on Ron Howard's next)... Which is sad... In some cases some are really just puppets... But Iglesias is gonna have his name on some big movie, he doesn't really care...<br><br>And HGW ? Well he saved Prometheus at the last minute, he's just Ridley's current fireman, proving there was no hard feeling after the butchering of Kingdom Of Heaven... lol
I'm not surprised Marc Streitenfeld was not asked back after Prometheus....Very nice, do you have some more information to share about this score? I'm very curious to know why Scott asked HGW to write such a big amount of music on his side...Whatever it's from, it does sound very....spacious. It has this almost ethereal, very calming beauty to it.For once, I don't doubt this is actual Zimmer music. :)Fact, no rumor... It's funny how it's twisted in every way...<br><br>Iglesias was helped by Jusid... HGW wrote 30 min on his side.

Does anyone know where you can get the sad piano music they played in the contender. If you watch the first episode of the contender series 1 on youtube you can hear it. (Its played right at the start where stallone says "life is a fight"?

Hans Zimmer is scoring the History Channelís upcoming mini-series The Bible. Zimmer has previously written music for Burnettís reality show The Contender.


Ds2012-12-31 17:24:56
Woooow 2013 will definitely be a great year for us! There's an extract of this series at /watch?feature=player_embedded&v=S42szZFGmZw#! , the music is pretty beautiful - don't know if it's from Zimmer or not...


Jimmer2012-12-31 17:55:02
Wow, that's awesome. Any new music from Zimmer is exciting and now getting a plethora of new music from the composer next year is really exciting.

@Hybrid: Do you know if the music from said documentary, The Bible, will be released officially on CD or something?


Macejko2012-12-31 18:27:23
The series itself looks shitty though. Cheap and poorly directed.


Jack2012-12-31 19:15:00
A preview of the score is available on Youtube, on the official channel of the series (The Nativity scene).

The Main Theme is not by Hans Zimmer.
Is been composed by Steve Jablonsky, Zimmer is just the score producer.
