There’s nothing breathtakingly surprising here. Zimmer is that rare combination of artist and workhorse, and his style is set in synth stone even if it hasn’t completely ossified. That’s a relevant issue considering that he’s effectively taking over the baton from the legendary John Williams — a man who produced dozens of iconic songs but who has become a bit static after, you know, seven decades of writing movie music.
Zimmer brings a bit of freshness here. The percussive intensity that we heard in Inception, the lilting tones of metal on metal, some bombastic brassy moments. The only question is how much of it will be copied by trailer editors.
