almost sure that first line is " Mah&#257;tm&#257; sisaGgrAmayiSu " in Sanskrit: "great soul wishing to start a war"<br>Nah, it's just a retarded mistake.LOL@Evenstar maybe just to make a difference from maybe cues with rap or another kind of music that serves as additional score for the movie. For example Bad Boys 2 has Trevor Rabin and many composers as additional music but that's the composer music. Dr. Dre. write additional music but that was rap remixes. So, that's why i think the take movie picture score instead motion picture score.Yep, i think it was in the movie 2 times, first the motorcycle chase scene, second the action scene in the end
Damn I knew I heard some MW2 in the score! Glad I'm not alone. :DWell, not that new... aka 'Wonderland'New assigment for Jab: Spenser Confidential with Peter BergI wonder if the Modern Warfare 2 favela music which was in the movie, that will be on the album or not.@ MrZimmerFan<br><br><br>Yes, same thing with 6 UNDERGROUND. There were a lot of songs as well. Now we know why Lorne had the time to do all of those big movies in such a short period of time. lol.<br><br>Now if this was Transformers, it would've been a whole different story.....

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to Be Scored by Hans Zimmer & Pharrell Williams

In an interview with Billboard, Pharrell revealed that he will be working closely with Hans Zimmer on the score for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This would not be the first time Pharrell has worked with Zimmer – the pair have worked together multiple times, including on the scores for Man of Steel and the 84th Annual Academy Awards in 2012.

I read that HZ is set to score the forthcoming trailer for TASM2. ComingSoonNet also reports that a trailer to TASM2 will be shown before Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. If it is the same clip then I guess we can get a glimpse of HZ's work very soon.

Hans Zimmer forms Amazing Spider-Man scoring supergroup: Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger and Dave Stewart.

Macejko2013-10-31 22:33:03
Now I'm just confused. And also a little bit curious. This is a pretty unique situation.

JackieStewart2013-10-31 22:53:25
YES! Johnny Marr, what a legend. Shame about that Pharrell guy, though...

Edmund Meinerts2013-10-31 23:30:39
What is this, a rock band? Is that what we can expect for TASM 2 now? :/

trent easton navarro2013-11-01 11:33:07
And in the end it'll probably still sound like every other Hans Zimmer score. Just as with MoS and it's drummer circle jerk, you won't hear anything interesting from these superstars.

What I still don't understand how you can go from a James Horner score to this. You'd think a director would wants some continuity.

Hybrid Soldier2013-11-01 12:20:14
Yes Trent, As Good As It Gets has a lot in common with MOS, which has a lot in common with Rush, which has a lot in common with Power of One, which has a lot in common with Broken Arrow !

The only jerk in the room is you.

And Webb wanted Zimmer as FIRST CHOICE on Spidey 1, HZ refused due to TDKR... Webb wanted HZ for 2, he got HZ...

trent easton navarro2013-11-01 12:44:42
I'm sorry Hybrid, I forgot we all have to worship the Great Lord Zimmer and not be critical. How could have I forgotten. I'll be good boy now. Zimmer is Great, Zimmer is Mighty.

But in all honesty, the only one who has been acting like a jerk is you Hybrid. Just look at your comment on the Days of Thunder thread or the one where you were pleased Edmund was pissed. You act like you're something special cause you happen to know Zimmer.

And I know Webb wanted Zimmer for the first Spidey, that wasn't my point at all. So I'll rephrase. I can't understand how one goes from wanting Zimmer to hiring Horner. Two very different composers. And the way Spidey 2 is shaping up, it'll sound very different from what Horner did.

Ds2013-11-01 12:46:05
Hybrid: what i don't get is WHY the hell Webb picked up James Horner when Hans said no. If Hans didn't want to score my picture, i would go to Zanelli or Jabonsky or Jackman or Balfe... If Zimmer's sound is what he wanted, never in the world could he expect to be even half happy with Horner.

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-01 13:12:10
@DS - THAT is why this assignment confuses me so much. If I was a director hell-bent on getting Zimmer and I couldn't, I'd go to Jablonsky. Horner is like a complete 180 from that. And apparently Webb had to try quite hard to get him too, had to talk him into it a lot, and was very pleased with the results. So why would he completely abandon his original idea, get something he ended up really liking, and then completely abandon that too? It's like he has musical ADHD or something.

Frisbee2013-11-01 13:35:48
Let's not forget who the core audience for this movie genre are. Would you think that your average teenager would choose symphonic grandiose over rock'n'roll? Them Marvel boys want to bag bankload of cash - it is not art they are trying to make.

And really, stop with all the frustration over the rock band concept too. It is just publicity. Come on, when was the last time HZ brought in soloists and put their stuff at every corner of his work? We don't think of Inception for Johnny Marr's guitar riffs. We remember it for cues like "Time" or that motif on horns in "Dream is Collapsing". Were Joshua Bell's violin solos featured in every minute of Angels & Demons? Even the drum guys at MoS would have gone completely unnoticed had there not been so much publicity about the concept of a drum orchestra.

The point is, this stuff appears to be HZ's insurance plan, something to calm the higher ups with, gain a bit of freedom and do what he wants to do. Sure it is a bit bizarre to consider a team of guitar players for a superhero project but we never know the degree to which they are involved. Maybe that is something to address the antagonist's tunes with. It is Electro so guitars aren't exactly the last instruments to consider for that.

Horner's work for the first film was terrific. Now for whatever reason he is not coming back. It is HZ now, folks. Let's wait for the final work, give it some unbiased listen, then come and explode here if we must. It is 6 months early for this.

Mike2013-11-01 16:43:09
Very interesting, Hybrid—I didn't know Webb wanted Zimmer for TASM1. But yes, as others said, why not go for Steve Jablonsky or Lorne Balfe? Horner sounds nothing like Zimmer.

MacArthur2013-11-01 20:56:19
Maybe because the Director's next favorite music scorer is Horner.

If I were a Director and I didn't get Zimmer I'd want Alan Silvestri or (If he was willing)
Zack Hemsey.

Maybe the director thought that he would go with his second favorite.

trent easton navarro2013-11-01 22:16:55
@frisbee You know, the rock band angle doesn't even bother me. Hell, I loved Zimmer's score for M:i 2 which is basically a rock score.

It's just a shame that we have another franchise with probably no musical continuity. And looking at past projects, the more Zimmer hypes it up beforehand, the less interesting the score turns out to be (TDKR, MoS). But we'll see how it turns out, Marr and Stewart are both wonderful artists.

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-01 23:04:56
M:I 2 has parts that are nice and parts that make my ears bleed. I certainly hope TASM doesn't sound like that. Rush was much better but still not a sound I can really imagine for Spider-Man...

MacArthur2013-11-02 05:03:17
Maybe he will surprise us. I think maybe he's trying to get us to think like that and then he will fool us.

Mike2013-11-02 14:15:09
...Or, as someone else said, this will be just like Inception and MoS where these guys do nothing to REALLY influence the score. :)

Mike reply Replies: 8 || 2013-10-29 16:35:40
Too bad the article, like many other people, seems to be blasting Horner's score. I thought it was good for the most part.

isildur2013-10-29 16:40:36
I am excited for this movie only because Hans is scoring. I didn't like the first movie at all. Not even the score, I thought it was bland.

Mike2013-10-29 16:41:23
You thought the score was more bland than The Avengers? ;)

MacArthur2013-10-29 16:52:40
To tell the Truth I liked the Avengers score Thought that Silvestri's Themes for it were good.

Edmund Meinerts2013-10-29 17:03:34
I don't get the dislike for Horner's Spider-Man score. What's not to like about it? It has a nice memorable theme (one that actually dares to be, gasp, major-key and heroic at times), good action cues, good character moments with a strong EMOTIONAL core. Just because it didn't have a bunch of low synth brass chords and wasn't following an obvious Zimmer temp means it's a bad score these days, I guess. :/

0-cool2013-10-29 17:17:56
MoS had a lot of major key moments

isildur2013-10-29 17:24:25
Well, when you bring The Avengers everything else sounds good :D

Edmund, it's not like everyone who didn't like that score automatically is a synth brass fan ;) It just wasn't my taste and honestly the movie did it no favours.

MacArthur2013-10-29 17:27:04
I didn't Mind Horner's score some of it was unusual but I like it.

One Horner score I hate is Titanic. but overall his stuff is ok

tomPoland2013-10-30 17:29:01
"a fairly lackluster example of the usually bombastic superhero score"
"bland-but-serviceable score"

really? really? author is either stupid or deaf

Horner score was IMO better than Elfman's (besides that obvious titanic-theme in crane scene). Nice respite from heavy RCP and Tyler scores.

PS. Looks what happened when they kicked out Horner from Ender's Game. Disaster.

"The First Time They worked together"

"Worked together several Times"

You''quote'' ??

No just he said They never worked together and then he said they worked together the very next sentence

Mike2013-10-29 19:09:50
No, here's what it said, MacArthur:

"This would NOT be the first time Pharrell has worked with Zimmer – the pair have worked together multiple times, including on the scores for Man of Steel and the 84th Annual Academy Awards in 2012."
