As Man of Steel gets released around the world more and more featurettes are being unveiled. This particular featurette focuses on Hans Zimmer’s great score. Zimmer has worked on some of Hollywood’s biggest films (The Lion King, Gladiator, The Dark Knight, Inception, just to name but a few) and he has to be one of the best film composers working in the world today. Here he delivers another effective score to one of the year’s biggest films.
On a side note, Man of Steel has been released in the U.S. to an amazing reception. It brought in $125m on its opening weekend, lining it up to be the year’s highest-grossing films.
Man of Steel official synopsis:
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here?
Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
