Hans Zimmer was the man responsible for the score on each of the Christopher Nolan Batman movies and he is now working on the score for the new Christopher Nolan film Interstellar. Hans has opened up about scoring the new film, discussing how they were influenced by The Dark Knight trilogy.
Zimmer told Collider, "We had this sort of conversation about—you know nine years we spent in our Batman world. The textures, the music, and the sounds, and the thing we sort of created has sort of seeped into other people’s movies a bit, so it’s time to reinvent. The endless string of sonatas need to go by the wayside, the big drums are probably in the bin. So right now it’s sort of the time where I’m pondering what else we can do.”
He added, “Chris feels the same challenge, ‘Let’s do something new. We have something to say.’ He really has got something to say, there’s a solid backbone to this thing and it’s an important story, and we want to tell it in a way that nobody else has ever done. And the same goes for the music, of course.”
Interstellar stars Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow and Wes Bentley. The movie will open on November 7, 2014 in both the US and the UK.
