UK TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises and soundtrack listing for Hans Zimmer's score

Jun. 11, 2012by: Paul Shirey

A new TV spot from the UK for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES hit today as well as the cover art and track listing for the film's score by the renowned Hans Zimmer.  There isn't really anything I could spot that was new in the TV spot, but shit, it's Batman, you don't really need a reason. 

Take a look:

The soundtrack listing is cool to see and open for interpretation in terms of what plays where and in what context.  Hans Zimmer has knocked it out of the park with his scores for the films and it's interesting to note that his collaborator on the last two, James Newton Howard, is absent from this outing. 

Here's the cover and listing:

01. A Storm Is Coming (0:37)
02. On Thin Ice (2:55)
03. Gotham's Reckoning (4:08)
04. Mind If I Cut In? (3:27)
05. Underground Army (3:12)
06. Born In Darkness (1:57)
07. The Fire Rises (5:33)
08. Nothing Out There (2:51)
09. Despair (3:14)
10. Fear Will Find You (3:08)
11. Why Do We Fall? (2:03)
12. Death By Exile (0:23)
13. Imagine The Fire (7:25)
14. Necessary Evil (3:16)
15. Rise (7:11)
TOTAL TIME: 51:20

Lastly, in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES news, Tickets went on sale today for both traditional and IMAX, so get your ass over to fandango and secure your seat for the big day on July 20, 2012!

 

Extra Tidbit: I've been a big fan of James Newton Howard, but he hasn't really wowed me in a while. His scores for Green Lantern and Snow White and the Huntsman were underwhelming at best. I'm hoping he pulls through, though, because he is an amazing composer.

Extra Tidbit

It's kind of sad that one of his better scores was used in The Last Airbender (2010). Only good thing about that movie I say.

I consider Nightwing to be a possibility but I still think that's just a rendition of the Bat logo. I hope you are right though...

I'd love to give that a listen, if for nothing else the Bane chant.

James Newton Howard

I found this explanation for Howard's absence in the trivia section of The Dark Knight Rises IMDb movie 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.

I like that they're circling back on the "Why Do We Fall" motif from Begins. But a little bummed to see the soundtrack is only 50 minutes of music. I want more ZIMMER!

I bet Netwon Howard still helped.

I would bet that Howard was still involved as he was with the last two: to a small degree. But his credits on TDK soundtrack prevented Zimmer from being eligible for a Best Soundtrack Academy Award, so chances are Howard opted to not be credited for this one so that Zimmer could stand a chance. A smart move, if that's the case. I somehow doubt he just decided to completely remove himself from the creative process after working on the first two.

That's a good theory, but last year Zimmer purposely took himself out of the Oscar race and refused to submit his works for consideration (primarily Rango) because he was over campaigning for awards. So that makes me wonder if this was awards-motivated or just due to Nolan being so comfortable with working with just Zimmer now
