Man of Steel: Preview of Hans Zimmerís Score & New Images
Screen Rant ^

Posted on 05/03/2013 6:08:16 AM PDT by Perdogg

When Hans Zimmer was invited by Zack Snyder to compose the score for this summer’s comic book movie blockbuster, Man of Steel, he admitted to being so daunted by the challenge of living up to John Williams’ legacy that he procrastinated for three months before finally throwing himself fully into the task.

1980's 'Superman II' is a small masterpiece and will never be bettered.

Reading the music boards about Zimmer is interesting. The synth guys are fairly polarised on him, but some of the classical types seem to think he’s a talentless hack.

Whatever he is, he does not suck ;)

How do we know it’s a blockbuster? I hate this hype of movies. Premature.

I cringe at any attempt to reinvent a great movie. Especially in this age of cynicism and “darkness” and “reality”.

A crime that Donner’s original versions never made it to the theaters...

Way back in my Drum Corps days, we had a guy who looked just like Christopher Reeve, so of course we called him Superman. He only marched that one year.

The next year, we got another guy who looked just like Christopher Reeve, so of course we called him Superman II.

That year we did a show in the first Superman's hometown, and he came by to say Hi. We immediately grabbed him and took him over, and introduced Superman to Superman II. Talk about Doppelgangers, they could have been brothers.

Nothing to do with this thread, just a cool story. And Hans Zimmer's good to go.

It’s nice,
But I love the cadence and the intervals in “Can You Read My Mind”.

I guess I’m old fashioned and unsophisticated, as I like music with a “hook”.

It was good enough for Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, The Beatles, the Stones, and even John Williams, so I’m not ashamed to say it!

JMO.

Depends on the movie IMO. Some should have been dark to begin with but due to either PR concerns or the tech of the time, were all ‘prettied up’.

70s/80s Superman movies were of their time and IMO Superman never was that ‘dark’ to begin with. The 80s Batman movies were entertaining, but the new ones to me aren’t even dark enough. The entire Batman story is blacker than black top to bottom.

It just depends.

Not overly impressed yet by what I hear.

There’s no way to know how it will perform in the theatres, because it would depend on what it is up against. However, everything I’ve seen suggests that it will break $500 million minimally.

That is blockbuster territory.

Agree, I think what is hear is mostly just background music. I hope I’m right.

The drum stuff sounds like standard intense emotion or action scenes music, complete with the “galloping” cadence effect.

The slow stuff sounds weak. Hope it’s just background.

I just don’t like telling us it’s a blockbuster when real people haven’t judged it yet. Like Ryan Leaf was going to be the greatest QB ever.

Have you seen the reconstructed version? It stinks. Lester improved on Donner’s original in every way.

I listen to SKY.FM at work. They have multiple channels but the only one I listen to is the movie soundtrack channel. Hans Zimmer’s work on quite a bit. You should check it out sometime.

Completely disagree. End of story.

That’s just marketing.

By telling us that it’s a blockbuster, it will influence more people to see the show than turn off from seeing the show.
