Here's a nice little treat for you today. Empire is sharing the score for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES with the masses in anticipation for the film. We are getting closer and closer to July 20th, so until then let's just close our eyes and imagine how awesome the movie will be while listening to Hans Zimmer's score.

Usually Zimmer has worked with James Newton Howard on the previous Bats scores. This time he did it all on his own. You guys will be happy to know that the track titles are not spoilery. I was nice enough to brave it for you beforehand. The tone of the score is what I expected to hear: dark, ominous, and grand. I'm having a hard time choosing a favorite track. Right now, I'm having a hard time staying on task with this article because I keep glaring off into space while listening to the score.

Check it out below. Enjoy your eargasms.

After listening to last track "Rise" (1:00 into the song), I'm holding on to my nonsense and crazy theory more than ever...that Bruce Wayne dies and somebody else pick up the mantle. Batman live on as a symbol/legend. Not to mention recent Nolan's reference to "Tale of Two Cities"

Hellboy-Bane

Bane's theme "Born And Raised In Hell" is haunting me in my head for many days

"Born in Hell" is probably a reference to Bane's childhood behind prison bars, and if they indeed go with this in the film I'll be a very happy camper. I really like "Mind If I Cut In", the slinkiness of the piano melody seems extremely fitting for Catwoman. You can hear little bits of "Discombulate" from Sherlock Holmes in there, but it's a lot less brash and boisterious, and more elegant and slick. Then there are those frantic strings, which contrast the calmer piano and signify all is not

I had read in the past that Hans Zimmer handled the darker stuff, and James Newton Howard crafted things like Rachel's and Harvey Dent's themes. With Dent and Rachel gone, could it be a purely creative decision that Howard is not back? Things are so bad that only Zimmer's themes will fit? Something to think about.

From the "Dark Knight Rises" IMDb Trivia Page:

Christopher Nolan offered James Newton Howard the opportunity to write the score with Hans Zimmer as he did for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight but Howard felt that due to the collaboration between Nolan and Zimmer on Inception, he would be like a third wheel.
