Listen To 14 Minutes From Hans Zimmer's The Dark Knight Rises Score
Christopher Nolan is known for working with the same talent over and over. Throughout his short but illustrious feature film making career the director has re-teamed with several big stars, most notably recycling Christian Bale and, his good luck charm, Michael Caine. Nolan's only worked with one cinematographer, the Academy Award winning Wally Pfister, and just three composers, David Julyan, James Newton Howard and Oscar winner Hans Zimmer.
Juylan's creative relationship with the filmmaker dates all the way back to his short film Doodlebug and includes the features Following, Memento and The Prestige while the rest, three Batmans and Inception, all fell under the purview of Zimmer (and Newton Howard for the first two). The first three scores that composed for Nolan have been brilliant, especially their music for The Dark Knight, so it comes as no surprise that this recently released 14+ minute preview of Rises sounds so good.
This video is compilation of 14 different samples, each 60 seconds a piece, from Zimmer's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises score. Have a listen...
"A Storm is Coming" sounds like the perfect bridge between Zimmer's TDK and TDKR scores with the latter taking on a more militaristic (yet oddly often orchestral) sound. Bane brings the beats in more ways than one. It's interesting to compare the music from the three Batman films to see how the sound has evolved and it's safe to say that the final piece is the most ambitious. Hopefully the same will be said of Nolan's film. I'm not worried.
The Dark Knight Rises has Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine all reprising their roles while adding newcomers Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple and Josh Pence. To see more from the movie head over to our Blend Film Database.
