It's not really that complicated...it's pieces of the Moody Bruce Transfiguration suite interspersed with bits of "Train Fight." ;) Hans could have easily done it himself. But anyway, the credits on this page are incomplete as it is, so we don't know. And it's really all Zimmer's music anyway, in this case, so...We can all just move along, I would say. :PPoor Dutch people... :PMy name is Antonius Bernardus Johannes Holkenborg. Father of a murdered child, husband of a murdered wife and blah blah blah you know the rest. ;)Well 2 more days to go. We can wait that long!Ooops new topic instead "reply" previous thread
Hybrid, check "Black Mass" trailer - "Music by: Tom Holkenborg" without JXL.His artist name was Junkie long before film scoring.<br><br>Funny thing is when he scored Dutch films he went with his real name Tom (though he's named Antonius Bernardus Johannes Holkenborg lol... remember the Antonius remix in Sherlock 2 ? ;)).<br><br>In Hollywood he went with Junkie (not on TDKR though), but he seems to go back toward Holkenborg recently. Now seems to be the transitional phase with the 2 names. I guess in the future he'll be Tom Holkenborg only... :) In the end, I don't matter as long as I know who we're talking about !! :)<br><br>Speaking of him and Mad Max, just check his recently posted videos, it's great insight !<br><br>youtube.com/watch?v=VkNeXS0Lmxc&list=PLPDbiB89zUSI-bAKsef_UC 87OMsHrv_tR&index=4One thing I don't understand, what's the deal with Tom v Junkie? What is the purpose of the two names? Which one does he go by? Which one will he use in the future?<br><br>And why, here, has he used both?It was Tom not Hans. Hybrid said it before.Nope !<br><br>Wait & see !
Please, someone leak this!!! Hybrid do you have a track you could add here?I'm convinced that Hans actually did Brothers in Arms. Must have stumbled in drunk one night.FYI the music that plays when Furiosa is stabbed during the final chase is in the piece "Immortan", about in the middle.<br><br>The piece starts off with the scene after the first chase when they lose the pregnant bride...Then it kicks into Furiosa's stab scene, then some other actiom  music I dont remember. <br><br>But in case you were looking for that bit to put right before Chapter Doof drops the bass, that's the track....Well of course he must have - Junkie is a protege of Hans Zimmer....Like all the other composers - Badelt, Jablosnky, Powell, etc. - When they first started their scores sounded similar to Hans' music in terms of orchestration and motifs used... <br><br>not to denigrade the man's work, but this doesn't surprise me and I'm fine with that...Junkie will develop his own sound eventually and explore new techniques, just as I'm sure Zimmer tutored him to do....Jesus I remember when both Powell and Jablonsky's scores sounded practicaly the same to Junkie's...And this was a decade ago.Don't mistake sound samples and music style.
Its always a surprise to see the fact that people / fans / critics / moviegoers / haters actually do not really (REALLY) listen to music. its either somewhat similar or its not and that is the end. the person behind the Hybrid Soldier name said not so long ago that there is zero Hans in this score, nothing...<br>well, its an interesting thing to say because the score that was released in europe and the version of the movie was maybe a special studio cut but I'm convinced that I heard many-many times the almost ancient Zimmer choir motif...<br>Hans started to use this signature motif somewhere around crimson tide and since then, everybody in remote control history, I mean everybody used it. also Hans is still today obsessed about it and nobody talks about this. its almost like the famous "danger motif" from Horner. but, yes its true that Hans is in re-invent mode every time, so sometimes its a female choir or sometimes male but fuck, dont bullshit around after 20 years of music.<br>other then that, yes its Junkie alone but in the end its not only his craft, he borrowed / used directly from HZ in this too.Now I saw what you meant! Indeed. Since when is Junkie THE film composer and Zimmer the co composer...I was Basically reiterating what you were saying.Right. Wonder if they still get to use RCP samples and things like that... they of course develop their own techniques but...Nope, been almost 15 years now... lol

does anyone no anything bout wat is happing with the score and will the score be in the next trailer


Mike2013-03-15 20:25:46
We'll probably hear ELEMENTS of the score (kinda like for the 3rd and 4th Dark Knight Rises trailers).


Man Of Steel2013-03-17 23:11:38
Got a chance to listen to a little of the score. And it's awesome! Very, VERY different than anything Williams ever did. But still amazing. King Arthur drum cadences against alot of brass bends and electric guitars...yes i did just say electric guitars in a superman score.


d.j2013-03-17 23:18:17
may i ask how did you get two listen to it and where did you get to??


Mike2013-03-18 00:31:47
I would say, d.j., that Man of Steel doesn't know what he's talking about. :)


Man of Steel2013-03-18 20:32:38
I would say i do know what im talking about. Unfortunately i cannot say how Ive heard it cuz i don't want anyone to lose their jobs. D.J simply asked and i told him. You can believe it or not. But when you finally hear it, you'll see my description wasn't wrong.


d.j2013-03-18 20:54:20
man OF steel it's cool just keep us updateed bout what you no bout the score and i have one more ? do you no if they will put wat you heard in the new trailer and do you no when the trailer will come out


Man Of Steel2013-03-19 05:43:39

You make a good point Mike, and it's exactly what I was going to say. The theme is there, whether you like it or not. If it's not the kind of theme you wanted is another matter...

Btw, Tom Holkenberg (Junkie XL) tweeted that the score is finished. This does give Hans plenty of time to do Lone Ranger after all. I guess this means we should defiinitely hear the theme in the next trailer for sure.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 21:12:06
Yeah Man of Steel is already "past tense"... :)


Lorne told me they really are working together with Hans on that Bible TV series. And from what he said, he didn't work with HZ at all on Man Of Steel or any other HZ project. I guess that's the first time a big HZ score has no Lorne in 8 years... :O

Lorne has way too many things to carry on !

Oh and Geoff Zanelli has done a little work on Man of Steel. :)


Mike2013-01-05 21:33:46
Have you heard any of MOS Hybrid?


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-05 22:36:20
Nope and just for once I'll try not to hear any SAMPLE before I see the film... :)


MGDrone2013-01-06 01:26:30
So, on Additional Music for MOS we can expect to hear something from Zanelli and Junki XL? Do you know who else is on the project?

I'm excited to hear what they're cooking up for the Bible series. Do my ears deceive me, or is that Lisa Gerrard I hear? (I'm referring to the Youtube video.)


Mike2013-01-06 03:36:13
To that, Hybrid, I say: good luck. :P


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-06 09:05:23
It is Lisa Gerrard... :)

All the music from the trailer is from the show. There's also that big 5 min "Nativity" clip on youtube, with score too (and Lisa)... :)

Mike reply Replies: 9 || 2012-10-23 09:30:59
Something just occurred to me. Perhaps for the Man of Steel score it would be best not to expect a "main theme", instead awaiting multiple "sub-themes". Because in Batman, there's not one theme, strictly speaking, but several.

Either way, I'm excited for what this score might bring, especially considering that Zimmer won't be going for the bass-heavy, percussive Dark Knight approach.


Mike2012-10-23 09:38:10
Errr, excuse the thing about bass heaviness. He never specifically said that.


MGDrone2012-10-23 18:30:48
I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense. What people should keep in mind is that this Superman is going to be incredibly different from Donner and Reeves' Superman. There's no reason we should expect a theme similar to John Williams' theme. On the same level, yes, but not similar. There's also no reason Hans should try to score this like anyone but himself.

I really can't say what I want the score to sound like since I didn't really get the feel of the movie from the teaser. All I can hope for is that Snyder will give Zimmer free reins and let him score the movie like he knows it should be scored.


Mike2012-10-23 23:19:07
Although I gotta say I wouldn't mind hearing something along the lines of Williams' Krypton theme. They was great stuff!


Bondo2012-10-24 03:34:00
You're not gonna hear anything that sounds like John Williams


Mike2012-10-24 04:27:53
Oh, I know. Just saying.


tomPoland2013-01-04 13:52:31
Superman theme is a must be. Powerfull, beautiful, memorable.
And without ostinatos that RCP people over-use.

"No theme" in Batman had some sense, but this is SUPERMAN, American icon.


Hybrid Soldier2013-01-04 14:00:29
What "no theme" in Batman ?

You def ?


I can find PLENTY of themes in Batman.


tomPoland2013-01-04 15:28:54
No Batman theme, lots of minor themes but no direct melody to describe dark knight. There are those two notes, but it's hardly to call it a theme, don't you think?


Mike2013-01-04 20:12:33
Well, Hans considered the two notes to be a theme. Is there a definition of theme you're going by, where these two notes truly don't make the cut?

Le Lombardi from Brazil reply Replies: 5 || 2012-08-14 05:28:44
I can believe that you will not use for just a seconds the theme create by master John Williams. My dear Hans Zimmer it is for just a seconds, the power of this theme is UNIVERSAL and imortal. You know...some themes we will never forget, and stay for the hero, not for the film. ROCKY, STAR WARS, ET, RAMBO, STAR TREK TV, STAR TREK MOVIE, INDIANA JONES, HARRY POTTER, JAWS, TERMINATOR, IMPOSSIBLE MISSION, PLEEEASE MR. ZIMMER use your feelings.

IT IS FOR JUST A FEW SECONDS, THEME FOR SUPERMAN BY JOHN WILLIAMS, JUST FOR A FEW SECONDS, PLEASE.



NTNBaessi2013-01-03 03:55:25
Come on, a score is not a jingle for the character. The theme composed by J. Williams probably will not fit the tone of this new movie. Just get over it and embrace the new...


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 04:01:36
Just watched some videos on Youtube that mix The Dark Knight with the Danny Elfman old score for Batman/Batman Returns. It seems incredibly awkward, does not fitting the movie at all. This is just what could happen if they try to use J. Williams theme in Man of Steel. New franchise, new theme. PLEASE!


Areozz2013-01-03 04:54:44
Hans Zimmer on "The Dark Knight" + Danny Elfman on "Batman"/"Batman Returns" = Hans Zimmer on "Man of Steel"? How the heck does that make any sense? And do you really think that by complaining on an almost official page for RCP will get Hans Zimmer's attention and that he will choose to rework his whole score based solely on some mash-up videos that you saw on YouTube?

fools


Mike2013-01-03 05:06:52
Plus, I believe the score is written already. Wasn't there talk recently of how it was being recorded?


NTNBaessi2013-01-03 05:08:41
Did you actually read what I just wrote? Were did a mention that he should rework his score? I am saying that people should be open to the new sound that he possibly will bring to Man of Steel and not be stuck thinking on Williams score. Le Lombardi from Brazil says that Zimmer should use the classic Superman theme on MOS, which is movie totally different in tone, making the old theme unfitting. And if you use your brain you can clearly make a relation between this situation and what happened with the Batman movies...

The new Man of Steel trailer will premiere in front of The Hobbit on december 14th. Do you think it'll feature brand new music by Zimmer?

Remember the wonderful trailer #3 for The Dark Knight Rises a year ago... :)
