The credits at the end of the trailer for Steve McQueen's newest confirm Zimmer's involvement. It'll be really interesting to see what kind of approach McQueen wants from Zimmer on a project like this given the modern Zimmer action sound versus the kind of Zimmer sound he's sought in the past (even if Harry Escott scored SHAME we know what score McQueen wanted). Looks from the trailer like there is a lot of room for Zimmer to roam; I'm excited to see which direction McQueen pushes him.
"McQueen also plays around with form – a lengthy conversation is staged without even showing the two people conversing; instead, we just see the car they’re in driving out of one low-rent neighborhood to an affluent spot a few blocks away. All of this is aided by Hans Zimmer’s churning, ominous score. " https://www.slashfilm.com/widows-review/
Great, now Zimmer has ammo to throw back when we get all over his ass for bombast in other scores. "Yah, but I did WIDOWS & it only had 20mins!" Just like Williams' IMAGES, whenever someone gets on him for "blasting away from his romantic castle", he's got that ace.
This is a joke attempt. I love the hell out of both these gents.
It's still better than a download only release. I don't mind cardboard sleeves, I always take the disc out of them and put it in a normal jewel case, then put the cardboard case next to it on the shelf. At least it's a normal, pressed CD. Glad that it comes at all. And I actually enjoy this score more with each listen.
