A movie’s soundtrack is as important as the script, dialogue, acting, direction and cinematography. To realise the importance of the score of a movie, one must watch a particular scene with and without the background track. One will immediately realise the complete transformation of that scene from average to exceptional. Hans Zimmer is a modern legend. The German is considered one of the greatest movie score composer and record producer around. He began his career in early 1980’s. His breakthrough came with ‘Rain Main’ (1998) for which he received recognition and critical acclaim. Hans Zimmer has composed and produced over hundred soundtracks and film scores. He has won one Academy Award, four Grammy Awards, four Satellite Awards, two Golden Globes and three Saturn Awards. He also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Zimmer has been known for his several collaborations with acclaimed film director Christopher Nolan, giving some memorable and epic scores. Here is the list of best Hans Zimmer movie albums:
15. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
Hans Zimmer collaborated with Dutch DJ and composer Junkie XL for the soundtrack of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Zimmer had stated that it was a challenge composing for this film as he had earlier worked on the ‘The Dark Knight Trilogy’ and had to make sure none of that work was repeated. The movie had audiences divided but one thing everyone agreed upon one that it had an amazing soundtrack. The movie had some great tracks like “Beautiful Lie”, “The Red Capes Are Coming”, “Do You Bleed?” and “Is She with You?”. Special mention to “Is She with You?” which plays as an introduction to Wonder Woman in the movie and DCEU. It’s fresh and energetic and one theme you would love to hear again and again.
