Several clips of the film are on YT. With some music. Sounds like 90's score from HZ. Too bad the directing seems to come from an age movies didn't exist...No. It’s a boys choir. S&K bros is a girl’s choirSeems like Scala & Kolacny Brothers.In what way is it "obvious", exactly, that Djawadi had more influence on that Training cue than Zimmer? It's basically just a statement of Zimmer's theme, and doesn't really sound notably "Djawadi-esque" to me in any way.Thanks for the credits update
A bit of who did what...Lorne also confirmed that he took charge of Mr.Charles, and without saying that Lorne was on the good side of Score in general, so his influence was substantially high.Hybrid confirmed that training is composed by Ramin and Hans and it is obvious that Ramin's influence is superior to that of Hans.are we expecting the score for dark phoenix to be released in a week or so, if the movie itself drops early june?Not as simply as that.... Training is Ramin's arrangement of a Hans theme, and the core of Mr. Charles when the Fischer theme isn't playing is a Hans idea, too, as far as I know. Take the Zimmer out and those moments wouldn't be the same.
I think Balfe working with Nolan would have done a great jobBob,The Training is basically Ramin Djawadi and Mr.Charles is BalfeI hope these two team up again. Zimmer's score is the main driving force for some memorable scenes. Just a few<br>Batman Begins-The Training<br>TDK- Joker crash the party, Gordon's speech and ending<br>Inception - Time, Mr.Charles, <br>TKDR - the climb, imagine the fire and orphan<br>Interstellar-Stay, Docking, coward, mountain<br>Dunkirk - well the entire movieJustin Hurwitz I can see. I enjoyed La La Land and First Man. But Both Hurwitz and Göransson are several notches above Lorne Balfe. <br><br>I think 80/100 directors would rather work with Göransson than Balfe.I really believe that Nolan has made a mistake as a composer.I think Lorne Balfe, David Julyan or Justin Hurwitz would be much better options than Ludwig Goransson.
Interesting news. <br><br>Geoff Zanelli is one of those composers who I’ve loved his additional music over his solo efforts, Pirates 5 excluded. I hope he gets a chance to write some great fantasy music for this, regardless if he reuses JNH’s themes or not.I think I am the only one, who would be glad about David Julyan return.<br><br>I really like his music for early Nolan's films, especially Insomnia, and it's what i can call an "atmospheric experience".<br><br>Don't know how his music fits for espionage timetraveling movie, but, for me, i'st would be something interesting to hear.@mpolonest123: those Pemberton scores are indeed pure gold, very cool on album but insanely good in the movie. My favorite is still his King Arthur, that was a beast of a score that stuck with the movie like glue and really enhanced Guy Ritchie's dark, twisted, trippy vision.*3 thingsSure, but there's two things to consider. <br>1). Pirates has such an iconic sound that it'd be really stupid for them to suddenly abandon it at #5. Especially when we hired the guy who has worked on the previous 4. 2). Maleficent, as successful as it was to warrant a sequel, isn't quite as well known in the score department, despite being well received by those who have heard it. 3). Because Zanelli worked on all Pirates, he had enough familiarity with the sounds and motifs that he knew where to go once he led the ship. In Maleficent's case, he's taking over from a previous composer, and is working with a director who likely only knows his work on POTC5. As such, there's no knowing yet if he might be compelled to continue on from JNH, or if it's decided he just does his own thing.<br><br>I'm happy that Geoff at the very least has a safe career at Disney, considering two of their recent live action successes has had him involved. However, considering I hear his recently work hasn't been his best, JNH likely would've benefited from returning to a world that had some of his best material after he wasn't given the opportunity to do so with Glass. As such, it really is a severely missed opportunity, even if newer blood is getting more opportunities.

I said...It's better that Zimmer leaves these cartoon production...

When I heard that Zimmer was scoring this, at first I was dissapointed, but then I thought "Well, maybe the music will be a parody of Superman and maybe it will even contain self-parodies to the new Batman films!". But so far, from the clips, it seems that the score won't have any of these features. Such a shame...

@ Anonymus:

I think that Djawadi has done tha tracks where we can hear the noise of the scarecrow...

Sorry hybrid for being off topic, but we're also allowed to talk about Zimmer , even negatively.
You can say what you want, that Zimmer has never been alone writing his scores, I don't agree. back in the old days, he was helped by orchestrators and arrangers, yes, but he was still writing at least more than 70 % of his scores.
Nowadays, it is clear that he writes the themes, a few cues , -probably not even orchestrated just rough piano sketchs - and that's all.

And, he's probably doing all the business stuff, like meeting with directors, convincing producers that the music has to be like this and that, etc ...

That disappoints some people and I understand it.
Zimmer hasnt done a memorable score since ... lets say, Da Vinci Code.
I'm sure DA vinci code was one of the last scores he truely worked like in the old days....

Yes, I agree with alexkurt. I still have hope in Hans though, and I believe that someday he will surprise us with a score that will be on the same level as his older stuff. Inception was really good in my opinion, and it was perfect for the movie.

However I do not blame him for giving a chance to younger composer's to do some work and let them be credited for it, I think that only shows that he is a supportive and encouraging person and that he is not an egocentric person thar feels the need to take all the credit.
In a way I think that he is doing for these MV composers what Stanley Myers did for him when he was starting out in the business.

But I would definetly like to hear more "solo" scores by Hans, like in the good old days. And I'm looking forward to hearing what he and Lorne Balfe have done for Megamind. Cheers.

i look forward to this movie and its score.
Hans Zimmer is one of the most populare composers in the film industry at the moment, and he keep making amazing soundtrack so hes gonna be around for a long time, and im happy about it.
Hans Zimmers score is so powerfull and amazing that it just takes my breath away.
A really amazing composer whit an incredeble carriere :)

if i had to complain about one thing whit Hans Zimmer it is that all of his albums doesnt contain a copmplete score from the movie.
and thats not a critic on him :)

That's great!!!

How did you contact him?!

So, is he working already on POTC? And has finished to eork on RANGO?

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Hans, you disappoint me. Lorne Balfe isnt such a good composer , just a library music composer. No style, nothing !!! Why are you working with him ??? Work alone ... !!! you're much better when you do so ...

Khun reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Hans probably tries to push Lorne Balfe to be famous. You know, after the guy has worked and gained some experience from him with his previous works. At least, another fresh composer will be risen in the future. (I hope Lorne will do good again this time)

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Only Powell and HGW are good composers that Hans raised. Maybe Mancina also (but not lately). Others will do B movies or TV shows and sometimes Hans will take them to do additional music so they their name will be on cover.

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Right...lots of composer in MV are bad, only a few are good...Onestly I've no idea about Balfe, but for examle I remembered the bad work that Djawadi did on Batman Begins, NOISE not music!!!

Very bad composer...

Enrico reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
Adrian, onestly I consider Ramin a very poor "composer". Clash has a copy of Zimmer previous works with the classic MV sound and was a success just because guys now want hearjust POWERFUL music with 100% volume up!!!

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
I think we should be careful about this discussion unless we want this message board to degenerate into flame wars and be closed down like Clash of the Titans was. I actually liked Clash, but appreciate that there are people who don't. If we can just adopt a mature attitude towards this kind of thing, then this whole site will be a better environment for appreciation and discussion.

I think Ramin djawadi is a very low qualified composer according to Hans Zimmer, Every one is.
But Hans is just has not the time to do all the movies , so he has replacements, such as ramin djawadi and all the rest. I bet no one can do the inception score better than done by Mr Zimmer.

Adrian reply Replies: 0 || 2010-10-03 00:00:00
@Enrico,

What about Clash or Medal of Honor? Those were magnicificent jobs by him!
He worked with Badelt on Beat the Drum too, that was a success too.

@nameless 10/03
And B movies... Lorne did Crying with Laughter, but he made A music!

Hybrid Soldier, do you really say?!! It's fantastic!!

Do you think or you KNOW that is sure about POTC4?

However I think that Hans will be in SH2 too...

I hope that on CD there will be a division that explain what Zimmer did, and what Balfe did.

Hans Zimmer - theme (that's about 5%)
Lorne - the rest, 95%
