Dear Mr. Zimmer,<br><br>I just want to say 'thank you' for the incredible soundtrack to "Interstellar", especially "Dust", which lets me feel the deep space and make me thoughtful about everything. It is also a very good music for programming. I know you hear this very often and from everyone. But there is no reason why I shouldn't tell you also that you are awesome! Thanks for so many years of great music!Yes it was a shame, but the album was awesome and considering the fact that Tom is a big guy now (not literally) they probably wouldn't butcher the sequel score if he were to do it.<br><br>No info? I'm really interested in knowing the composers of these two (specially "Adagio" if it's from other score with will deserve a buy).This cover looks like someone tried to make a really dreadful Redwall movie.Any samples?
Fulton County is sooo good :)CD will release in japan.That butchering was really a shame. I remember watching the movie after having listened to the score a few times, I could not believe my ears. Fortunately Tom released a nice album with many great cues, so that we can forget the film and keep only tj music :-pAgree with Edmund, I listened only once and it was pretty heavy to digest... I will see the movie when it is released and then give the score a few more chances to grow on me. And I m 100% sure it will, in Powell I trust!!Yea but Diverent was such a damn good score. Would be great to see development of themes and of course new ones!
True dat. Like Deadpool!!No, I don't think so. His score was terribly butchered in the first and not so much was used in the final cut. Not sure he wants to return to that.<br><br>And he has much more interesting to do.Hybrid, do you think there's any chance that Tom will return to do the last 2 movies in this trilogy? The second score was horrendous and I think it would work if Tom came back and brought his old themes with him.The more I listen to this one the more I like it. Powell always puts so much into his scores that you have to go over it multiple times and you'll still be catching things you didn't notice before. I think "A Boy Who Could Fly" might be my favorite cue of the year, period. Although if there was a longer version of "Neverland Ahoy!", I'd say that. Those 40 seconds between 1:15 and 1:55 are so beautiful, and so short... :/Megamind in general reminds me of a better-developed version of Madagascar.
We can always get the suites from the OST though.Or we all win because the music's out there! Though technically, it's just a film edit that's leaked.It seems Steven Price listened too often to the track Fish Market before writing the score to Gravity.well ModelT you lose cause it already leaked lolHans' Megamind Theme reminds me of Madagascar for some reason.

Is this the only work that actually conducted by Zimmer?

al bundy2013-10-29 14:15:02

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.

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.
