Listen: New Samples From Hans Zimmer's 'The Dark Knight Rises' Score; Is There A New Trailer On The Way?

Perhaps it’s due to the fact that the summer hasn’t had the one requisite film that wholly delivers on spectacle arrive yet, but anticipation for director Christoper Nolan’s third and final installment in his “The Dark Knight” franchise seems to be continuously mounting – and the film’s studio, Warner Bros., seems to enjoy fanning the flames.

Perhaps it’s due to the fact that the summer hasn’t had the one requisite film that wholly delivers on spectacle arrive yet, but anticipation for director Christoper Nolan’s third and final installment in his “The Dark Knight” franchise seems to be continuously mounting – and the film’s studio, Warner Bros., seems to enjoy fanning the flames.

New sample tracks of Hans Zimmer score for the film are now making their rounds on the web, showcasing the same sort of dark melodies mixed with electronic flourishes that made the soundtrack for “The Dark Knight” such a thrill (if you missed the first batch, they're right here). This is the first score that Zimmer has provided for a Christopher Nolan Batman film that wasn’t in collaboration with noted composer James Newton Howard, but it still sounds as if Zimmer is capable of delivering the goods (as if that’s a surprise). With titles like “The Fire Rises,” “Fear Will Find You,” and “Why Do We Fall?,” the score sounds borderline anthemic at points, proving that this final chapter should be a suitably epic one.

Finally, it looks as if another preview for “The Dark Knight Rises” could be swinging into cinemas, as a fourth trailer for the finale was just given a rating by the film board in Alberta, Canada. We thought they’d call it a day with three, but with the trailers set to outnumber how many Batman films Christopher Nolan has actually made, this could be considered going a bit overboard. No word yet on where it might unspool, but regardless, “The Dark Knight Rises” arrives in theaters July 20th. But we’re sure you already knew that. [Batman-News/ComingSoon]
