If you are a Zimmer fan he has posted a free download of a track from his new score RUSH, a Ron Howard film about formula one racing in the 80's. Pretty cool move giving fans a free taste. Sounds awesome and vintage Zimmer. Really looking forward to both film and score. You can get the track through Zimmers facebook page and I believe from the movie's website.
Seven months before the film's release? That's one long period between post-production and release (I'm surprised Universal hasn't moved this one to the summer yet, seeing how Kick-Ass 2 is very niche-appealed and R.I.P.D. sounds like another Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).
I know Ron Howard tested the film back in October (tests were very strong, from what I recall) so you think with the film almost totally finished, good test screenings and a bankable lead in Chris Hemsworth, you think it would be on the Summer slate. Surprising that it's not (while Kick-Ass 2 is, which outside of Jim Carrey feels more like an early Fall release).
As for a 1980's sound from Zimmer, call me pleased as punch. I hope that it's a lot like Black Rain's score.
This is awesome! Sounds modern and developed with excellent stereo channeling, and as with most Zimmer stuff I'm a huge fan of his instrumentation on here. He's one of the finest composers working beyond an 80-piece orchestra.
Yes that clip posted from youtube sounds awesome and kickass. To my ears, Drop Zone meets Days of Thunder with all according 20-or-so years of improvement and artistic growth. Can't wait for the score!
