I wish HZ didn't tell before every film that his music is magical, incredible and give movie new dimension. Because of that people wait for this CD and miss a lot better scores, like How To Train your Dragon, Karate Kid or magnificent and truly magical Last Airbender.
I know some fans will kill me, but Hans is killing fellow composers (some much better than him) with this unnecessary hype.
I've read an interview of Chris Nolan saying that there are always enough space for imagination creativity and talent in Hollywood (talking about directors and actors). I wanna say the same toward composers. If there are so much talented/gifted composers (more than Zimmer) out there why they aren't in the end credits?...The response is so simple...it's because there are not as good as Zimmer. It is logical. It is easy to criticize him because he is "illetrate" (i don't think he is...) or what ever. Imagination is the only border. He is only using rock'n'roll tricks to find his cues. Would you say that great jazzman/bluesman/rockman is illetrate? certainly...less gifted? never...all the same concerning Hans Zimmer...
@tompoland Ive followed and read many different interviews with and about HZ, the guy is humble. I think you mistake what he says he is trying to do with a soundtrack as hype. Lebron James talks hype, HZ simply states what he is trying to do. It's hard to say there are other composers out there better than HZ, as he is such a huge influence that many have since emulated and used his style. Charlie Clouser, Clint Mansell, Harry Gregson-Williams - all amazing and unique in their own right, but they can't do what Zimmer does.
And if Hans Zimmer says his music gives a new dimension, it's because it did. The man's track record is ridiculously immersive and impressive. I've never heard an artist say "it honestly doesn't do much, I dropped the ball with this soundtrack"
@justin cat & HZgui guys, u dont need to fight about this, I can tell u the truth. I know about it all, i search a lor int he web so what im about to tell u is the truth, so listen: There were 3 trailers released before the movie, N.1 the '' broooooooommmmmmm'' sound that we hear is the work of zimmer along with an extract of the dark knight. N.2 the ''brooooooooommmmmmmmm'' still exists and this theme from the track 528491 is added with a different kind of remix, (also done by zimmer), that is only playing in the IMAX theaters just before the movie. N.3 The ''brrooooooooooommmmmmmm'' still and still exists, but this time the strings and the rest is done by this zack hemsey guy, that i really think he made the trailer worse than the 2 others before, he just couldnt give the spirit of the movie. That's the whole truth. So enjoy the brilliant work of Hans Zimmer guys.
Victor- Were not fighting together. We are just talking about good music :). And especially Zimmer's music for Inception. Look, the idea is to know who composed the music. That 's all about what we're doing. And I know that JustinCat and I will be so happy when we will hear new stuff new materials from Inception.
Hybrid Soldier- Come on dude we want it. ^^ No I'm kidding take your time. We'll have to give thanks to you if we get new tracks.
Yea, any new stuff from inception would be amazing, Mr.Zimmer really killed it with this movie. I believe "time" is slightly different in the movie, i heard johnny marr in it, and I wants it (said with a golem voice).
But I really want the 2nd trailer. I just cant help but obssess over it. If anyone finds it or obtains a promo copy I'll gladly do anything to get my hands on that track. :)
@David Martingale - I wont even start the argument back up lol, but part of trailer 2 was written by Zimmer, its more than likely a remix by someone else though. Either way it's sweeeet.
TDK was 2h28 Zimmer composed 6hours of music now what?
Don't need an expanded score...just 2-4 tracks more (10-20 twenty minutes more). It is enough...
we don't need the music in the trailer... It is not zimmer's work. If you want it, find it on youtube and use download helper trough firefox that's the best you can do. But there will be no place for trailers/teasers music in the score. IT IS NOT ZIMMER'S WORK!!! (except one piece of music but it's too short and we already have 528491 to represent this short passage).
Personally i LOVE this soundtrack but i'd very much love an expanded one, 2-3CDs since the official has a few missing pieces i was really looking forward to hearing (the music played in the trailers/towards the end of the film for example)
I for one support and will most certainly buy an extended soundtrack if and when its released!! =D
The second 1st and d 2nd trailer is done by hans zimmer, and the 3rd trailer is just a mix of the first trailer music, this composer used the bass brass sound and just added some strings and some add-ons.
JustinCat- I heard the music from the trailer one again. The broum (like the end of 528491) at the end is the only thing that Zimmer may have composed. The rest of it is from someone else. This piece of music is not in the movie. It is just a teaser-like music. It has nothing to do with what we hear in the soundtrack and in the movie, and has nothing to do with Zimmer's work... I can make the difference between Zimmer sound and copycat. Maybe it is Zimmer but the only thing that looks like with what Zimmer did on the movie is the broum at the end. The first minute isn't Zimmer's work I'm sure. And by the way it is not that good... listen to all the tracks in the score and you'll find something better everywhere...which means in any single track of it ;)
I'm not opposed to get more awesome music but I don't give a damn about Hempsey's work or about any trailers track....I just want more Zimmer music from Inception (at least 10-20 minutes, more? why not but there's nothing to add, all the cues are almost there...), and ONLY Inception. Zimmer does not compose music for trailers currently...(what you hear in TDK's trailers was Zimmer's reworked music...).
