The Dark Knight - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on 180g 2LP
Music Composed by Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard
Grammy Award Winnner for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media!
Composers Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, who collaborated on the score for the 2005 blockbuster Batman Begins, were asked by director Christopher Nolan to return for the haunting and powerful orchestral soundtrack to its highly anticipated follow-up, The Dark Knight in 2008. Zimmer and Howard are among the film industry's most respected and sought-after composers. Each has a career encompassing well over 100 film and television scores.
Zimmer won an Academy Award for his score for The Lion King, and has earned additional Oscar nominations for his work on Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, Rain Man, As Good as It Gets, The Preacher's Wife and The Prince of Egypt. Howard has been honored with eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Original Score nods for the films The Prince of Tides, The Fugitive, My Best Friend's Wedding, The Village and Michael Clayton.
The Dark Knight reunited Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
