The 'Batman V Superman' Soundtrack Might Be The Best Thing About The Movie
The summer blockbuster movie season has come early this year with the March release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , which looks to break box office records when it unleashes its spectacle onto audiences this weekend. A number of critics have already seen the film, and they haven't exactly been ecstatic about the it. But despite what critics may say, fans seems rather enthused and I haven't noticed many people complaining about the Batman v Superman soundtrack.
Regardless of how you feel about the movie itself, there's no denying that the score does an amazing job of setting the stage for the epic battle that takes place between Batman and Superman. That's because the film was composed by movie legend Hans Zimmer and the very hot right now Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg). Zimmer created the memorable scores to films like The Lion King, The Dark Knight, Gladiator, and the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Junkie XL, meanwhile, has made a name for himself lately by scoring this year's hit Deadpool, as well as last year's Mad Max: Fury Road and 2014's Divergent. The two composers have also worked together once before, both contributing to the music of 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 .
As for the Batman v Superman soundtrack, it's already available on places like Amazon in three formats: MP3, CD, and even vinyl. Not only that, but WaterTower Music has graciously put all 13 tracks, along with five bonus tracks, online for your streaming enjoyment.
