He loves DUNE and never saw the Lynch movie?

And what about his connection to Nolan - not his family anymore?

Nolan wanted to go another way, Zimmer went for Dune.


Yeah, that makes no sense, zero, sorry I cannot believe he never saw Dune, nope
Rest assured this Dune will be a disaster, a 3 hour pretty mood piece with synths banging me in the head.


FYI, Zimmer does not care what you think.


Dearest FB why do you always respond so aggressive when they criticize Hansi the Hack? Hold your breath my boy.

Those who can't believe that Zimmer never saw Dune might recall that Williams claimed never to have seen a Dracula film before scoring his version.

Maybe some people are just too busy with other things.

I'm another that has no trouble believing Zimmer hasn't seen the film. Was quite flabbergasted when disbelief was expressed. Books and their film adaptions are two entire different beasts. An appreciation of one doesn't necessarily lead to a desire to check out the other. And what possible reason could he have for saying he hadn't seen it when he had?

There are many people who have never seen Star Wars, so Dune...

I thought he was quitting superhero movies... smile

Well, I hope he has the stamina for two movies, because the first book is getting the Part 1/Part 2 treatment.

    Pretty simple answer;

    If he did admit he saw it then they ask what he thought of it. He tells the truth, it is a terrible movie, some sort of Hollywood relationship or other nerdom fallout ensues. Or he says he liked it a lot, people call him mean names, and say that is crazy to like such a terrible movie, fallout ensues. Zimmer is not stupid.

    Oh thank you for that. I blocked him a while back, as he is a known as a somewhat testy Zimmerite, FB, I think he and Thor are somehow related to Zimmers', otherwise I have to think it is that filtering effect that takes place when you watch movies or listen to music from Scandinavia.

    Here is the latest news on Zimmer's score for the movie DUNE.

    Hopefully this means Nolan will make a movie that's scored solely by James Newton Howard? I'm not holding my breath though.
    I want to spend a night with Gabbie Carter and Madelaine Petsch.... I think that's more likely.

    I'm not falling for it this time.
    He always delivers pre-score squeals about how amazing and innovative this (new) score is going to sound, and then we get DUNKIRK or something like the X-MEN score which completely ruined that movie with it's lazy, sustained ineptness.
    Nope.
    Let me hear it first.

    The score was was the least of it. You could have resurrected Goldsmith himself and the movie woulda still been a failure.

    Having said that, I really do wish Ottman's XMen theme was hauled out one last time to close it off. However, there were some nice bit in the Dark Phoenix score. The end credits were really nice, at least I thought so.

    Zimmer states:

    Right now I’m in the middle of making these sounds,” Zimmer said. “I just have these ideas, and it’s like this every day. I’m doing all these experiments, and I have no idea if any of them will ever really end up in the movie. But we are so dedicated, trying to do something different, to do solid and honorable work, and do justice to the book.”

    I really like the whole notion of doing "honorable work." I'm curious about how this score will play. However, I'm a bit disconcerted about Zimmer stating that he is "making these sounds." Of course, I expect sound effects in this score. Still, I want him to also be writing MUSIC for this book not just sound effects. It has been a long time since I read the novel, but I believe parts of it do lend itself to some thematic music.

    Yes, he likes to dabble with weird electronic/manipulated sound FX now.
    Dunkirk was the sound of an airplane or some such.
    His Joker theme was just an elbow on the keyboard for a few minutes.
    I'm sure we'll get some new, weird sound FX for this one (the Sand Worms maybe) and some ambient, electronic sustains for the emotional bits (hopefully, half as good as the Daniel Lanois one from the Lynch film).

    Dunkirk wasn't the typical war movie, so what you expect?

    Specially when Nolan isn't a classical guy for his movies, and Dunkirk is not an exception in that, and works fucking good in the movie.

    X-Men in the other hand... i like most of the efforts in the franchise, including Zimmer's work in the last movie, yes, isn't the best of his recent works (at least, isn't lazy like Widows)

    I hope Zimmer surprises us all with this one.
    I'd like nothing more than to dig some new music from him as inspired as his early days stuff.
    But I ain't holding my breath.
