    Why Zimmer? :/

    • Edmund Meinerts says:

      Er…because it’s a Nolan movie? I hope you’re not surprised…

      • Linkword says:

        Historical war film with synths?

        • Macejko says:

          Edmund, you don’t want to react to that. I know this person, he is extremely prolific on a certain movie website and is also clearly not right in the head. Just trust me on this.

        • Joseph Reitz says:

          Apparently people forget other projects Hans worked on in the past including numerous war movies. Thin Red Line anyone? Also (not a war movie) The Simpsons movie? I don’t recall synths there. Hans is capable to put a good score together with any genre just like John Williams is.

    • Jeff says:

      I only hope Zimmer returns to what he used to do best, large epic thematic scores. Please Hans, no more experimental ambient crap okay, please?

    • Ds says:

    Actually, the only Zimmer/Nolan collaboration that I really like is Interstellar. I thought he wrote a beautiful and haunting score for that movie. However, I didn’t like his Batman scores or Inception as much as a lot of people did. And, actually, it was after he began to collaborate with Nolan that I his scores stopped capturing my imagination as much as Lion King, Prince of Egypt, Thin Red Line, The Last Samurai and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End did, aside from a few exceptions (Lone Ranger, Rush and the aforementioned Interstellar).

    Actually it is a collaboration between Zimmer and Nolan…………….so
    when Nolan loves the score, that’s when it will be

    I sure it will be powerful , melodic and intriguing
