Listen: Goosebump Raising Full Track From 'Man Of Steel' Soundtrack

Listen, we poke as much fun at Hans Zimmer's BRAAAM-ing of the movies as anyone, but the truth is that his scores generally rule. His work for Christopher Nolan is exceptional, adding to the gravitas the filmmaker was aiming for both in his Batman trilogy and the dream-world thriller "Inception." His pieces can both be propulsive and moody, evocative and eerie but they usually can't be ignored. They are are mostly a key ingredient of whatever project he's involved with and that seems to be no different with "Man Of Steel."

Man Of Steel

Listen, we poke as much fun at Hans Zimmer's BRAAAM-ing of the movies as anyone, but the truth is that his scores generally rule. His work for Christopher Nolan is exceptional, adding to the gravitas the filmmaker was aiming for both in his Batman trilogy and the dream-world thriller "Inception." His pieces can both be propulsive and moody, evocative and eerie but they usually can't be ignored. They are are mostly a key ingredient of whatever project he's involved with and that seems to be no different with "Man Of Steel." 

We've already heard a 6 minute sampling from the official soundtrack, so how about a full track? Granted, it's a weird rip that might not be complete, but "An Ideal Hope" is absolutely goosebump-raising no matter what. Yeah, we'll go ahead and use that word epic again, because it is and it's mostly just powerful stuff that seems to perfectly marry the triumphant and heroic vibe we want from a Superman movie.

That song, along with another 3 minute preview is available for listen ahead of the films release. The soundtrack will land in regular and deluxe editions on June 11th, with the movie arriving on June 14th.
