Having seen it, the biggest thing I realized was that I missed this kind of scoring in movies. When the HZ of the 90s-2000s left in favor of experiments, it seems no one replaced him, so this area of "big sounding scores with instantly memorable and beautiful themes" has just been abandoned. Hopefully seeing/hearing this version of The Lion King now will give some ideas to executives/directors regarding musical choices!No GITS cannot be released, it's technically not possible... That's why Lorne leaked his part of the score himself...This is great news.Maybe Balfe’s scores to Ghost in the Shell now can get released.<br>Over 6000 people have signed the petition for Ghost.yea, that should be enough for meIt's comforting to get a reconfirmation that it's coming. <br>Now we'll just have to cross our fingers that the process doesn't take months like that one other release ;) <br><br>Which one will be out first: End Credits or X-Periments? :P
yes!yes!yes!<br>i can't wait!!!!!!!And I can tell you Hans brought the matter to the very head of Disney Music... Everyone seems game to release it, just need to work out some technicalities...He mentions the Dark Phoenix second CD here. 20:33 onwards.<br><br>https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=mHmKZbUZiIA<br><br>"I did a film recently that got away, but we wrote 16 hours of music. We're actually fighting to get another CD released because the film didn't do anything, just to have it out there. Because you can't use again in something else, so it'd be nice to have it out there. So that it doesn't disappear into a rubbish bin".Life's Not Fair first part is similar > Tears of the Sun - Yekeleni Part 1 lolAny idea on the name of the song from the trailer?
Honestly the biggest problem with this new version for me is the lack of new variants of the themes. They mostly just repeat verbatim Hans' original ideas with little to no innovation or changes made most of the time. <br><br>It also doesn't help that cues that did have wonderful variations such as "Nala Attacks", and "Nala & Simba" have been shortened to mostly cut them out. The worst cut being  for the ending to "Mufasa's Ghost" which originally peaked the emotion with that lovely variation of Simba/The One True King theme transitioning into the Pride Rock theme, all of which is absent now.The comic con trailer for Season 3 looks excellent.<br><br>Really looking forward to next season & score.<br><br>I saw some early 1900 world.

I'm just curious why there's so much dead air in the FYC tracks. Cues like "Shut it Down", "Burton Visits Prime Minister", or "Megatron has Squeeks" just have nothing to them! <br><br>No themes to speak of besides one horn blast of "Quintessa", no interesting melodies, or rhythm, just dead electronics and weak-feeling drums and strings which really doesn't fit in with the series' style. Not even the fourth movies'.Thanks Hybrid for explaining that. Makes more sense now.Yes it is because the FYC is horrible... The OST is what Steve & co wrote. The FYC is what came out of the Music Editing Factory, which I don't dig at all. Lots of micro edits & transformations Steve probably didn't even hear... lol<br><br>Real final mixes would look like the OST, not like the FYC...You gotta realize one thing, this score is US recorded so every new 15 min of score you release, you gotta pay back reuse fees. So it's very complicated & costy and that's why they released "only" 15 min of extra score.<br><br>If it was recorded in the UK, they could have released 2 hours of bonus tracks it wouldn't have cost anything more... :)<br><br>As for a chrono order, since all cues are mixed together in different tracks in the OST, it gets complicated...

HANS ZIMMER TO SCORE WONDER WOMAN 1984



Hans Zimmer has signed on to score Wonder Woman 1984. Patty Jenkins returns to direct Gal Gadot as the titular hero. Hans first scored the character in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman - Dawn Of Justice back in 2016, giving Wonder Woman her now iconic theme. Rupert Gregson-Williams, Hans's longtime collaborator, scored the first Wonder Woman film in 2017. Wonder Woman 1984 will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures on November 1, 2019.

Why are there so many people angry at Hans for scoring superhero movies again.
Averybody says something sometimes that they change later for whatever reason. We don't know what the reason is he's scoring X-Men & WW.

I personally think it's great that Hans is scoring superhero movies and beside that The Lion King and Widows. I think these four scores are going to be great.


mpolonest1232018-08-24 15:04:33
I fully agree. But I do want to see Zimmer actually write a fun and energetic superhero score, much like he did with TASM2 and portions of MoS (and even Megamind if you want to count that). We’ve seen Zimmer tackle the “darker” tone plenty of times with BvS and the Nolan trilogy.

Personally I did not like Batman v Superman, and frankly I’m glad to see the trend of overly serious, self-important superhero films go away. There will never be another franchise like Nolan’s.


mpolonest1232018-08-24 15:05:40
And as for the score *most likely* being analog synth, I think it could make for some fun music. Like a less abrasive version of Chappie...


superultramegaa2018-08-24 15:50:26
Well, just speaking for myself, I don't think Hans has it in him anymore. The Dark Knight Trilogy was well done, the little work he did in TASM 2 was pretty fun, BvS was a mixed bag, and his career has gone downhill along with his track record for superhero films.

I fully believe he had the most stress with BvS. You can hear it in the music. He just can't get a really great track in there. He's trying to make a new Batman theme but it's just a slightly re-arranged version of the "Batman Rising" theme from Batman Begins, boy choir and all. His Superman theme didn't feel any different in tone to his Batman theme, and the other themes (including Wonder Woman's) were kind of mixed bags themselves.

Of course I'd like to be proven wrong, but it's probably just going to be really cheesy and unpleasant to listen to synths with no orchestra in sight (IMO Wonder Woman's theme should be primarily orchestral because of her age and history), and the electric guitar/cello version of the main theme will be repeated ad nauseam. Very rarely in the past 2 years as he been able to reproduce anything close to how his career used to be.


mpolonest1232018-08-24 16:05:11
@superultramega
But that is your personal tastes. I get not liking synths/electronics, so this probably wouldn’t work for you. But for someone who does enjoy that style of music, I am pretty excited. It all comes down to personal preference.
And in the past few years you still have Interstellar, TASM2, Hidden Figures, KFP3, Chappie, Boss Baby, etc. I think Hans has still “got it” ;-)

But as for BvS, I do agree. Everything feels so uninspired. After MoS built up Superman’s theme, it gets completely downplayed. Even the action cues feel so lifeless overly processed. I feel like this was more on Snyder than Hans though. I wouldn’t be surprised if his “retirement” was an excuse not to do Justice League.

Hans: i'm done with superheroes movies...ah okay...
i need a orchestral score now!!!


dirty_score2018-08-24 10:44:23
Since this is 1984, you can expect more like a synth sound which is not necessarily a bad thing... maybe a throwback to his old days..

not doing superheroes anymore? yea right : ]

clearly doing it for the ladies, in my humble opinion. and it's okay and fine. all that happened in hollywood cost dunkirk the best score award. dunkirk didn't get the award because people were not happy with hollywood. that's what i think happened.

NTNB reply Replies: 4 || 2018-08-22 22:52:48
Interesting. Makes me wonder why he didn’t score the first one. Busy with the tour? Clearly not retiring from superheros.

What’s even more interesting, why did he opt-out from Justice League?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:05:05
He was, in fact, in the middle of the tour when WW 1 was done...


Mike2018-08-22 23:10:09
Do you think Hans would have scored Justice League if not for the tour?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:16:18
Hard to say. I don't think so. I think he really wanted it to be Junkie's moment. I'm sure he would have helped if needed though. Under other circumstances...


Bill Koufo2018-08-23 07:19:05
Maybe the first Wonder Woman was the "amazing script" that Hans was talking about and that would bring him back to the genre. He made that statement in the beginning of 2017 I think, so I guess they asked him to score the movie and he gave it to RGW, because of the tour.

Mephariel reply Replies: 12 || 2018-08-22 23:18:59
I think he knew Justice League would suck big time.

Hybrid, is Hans done with The Lion King yet? I would imagine he has to be working on Dark Phoenix soon right?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:26:11
Widows is completed.

TLK is under way and a long process due to the nature of the film (animation, songs etc.).

X Men, he's been working on that for a long time. But since the film seems to be under heavy reshoots all the time, he doesn't even know when the whole thing is gonna be finished (it will have to, at some point ! lol).


...2018-08-22 23:32:04
Did HZ consider POTC5 and decide not to do it because of the tour?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-22 23:35:39
Never, he closed the POTC door right after POTC 4...


...2018-08-22 23:36:59
Okay. It's too bad how it turned out. They might make a 6th movie as well.


Mephariel2018-08-22 23:44:34
I kind of wish Zimmer would come back for POTC6 just to close the whole thing out. But I think there is no chance at this point.


...2018-08-22 23:47:00
+1


Mike2018-08-22 23:56:06
Eh, if Powell could come back for Jason Bourne, I feel like anything is possible...


Scorefan2018-08-23 00:09:31
@ Hybrid, Hans is considering leave X-Men Dark Phoenix with those massive reshooots?


Hybrid Soldier2018-08-23 00:15:59
Have no clue about JXL's Justice League... As I said, I doubt he wasn't far in the writing process, but I also doubt anything got recorded.

As for X-Men, no, he's definitely NOT quitting it, no matter what's going on with the production.


Mephariel2018-08-23 00:39:56
@Mike

I hope so. But what is working against him coming back is that Zimmer already put his stamp on the series with At World's End. The POTC scores are already some of the most popular in modern times. There is not much motivation for him to come back. If he does, it will only be for the fans.


Nick2018-08-23 01:32:35
So much for retiring from the superhero genre...again. Lol

Sounds like Hans is going to be incredibly busy for the next year or so. Is he feeling at all creatively fatigued from all this?



ThePhantasm2018-08-23 04:04:08
@Hybrid will we ever hear Lorne Balfe do a superhero score? I'm dying to see what he'll do with that

Scorefan reply Replies: 0 || 2018-08-23 00:08:21
@Hybrid, did Tom recorded some music for Justice League? I mean for this controversy about Snyder Cut. Some comments say the runtime with Zack is over 3 hours and there are comments about The Snyder cut is true and have Tom's music.
