Happy Birthday Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer was born on this day in 1957. He is my favorite music composer working in Hollywood today and has done some amazing work in 2 of my all-time favorite movie franchises: Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

Check out this interview of Hans about creating music for Sherlock Holmes. Hans has been a longtime fan of the Sherlock Holmes canon and no wonder that he created absolutely mesmerizing soundtracks for the two movies.

Hans is equally at home, whether working on a fun soundtrack for Sherlock Holmes or a brooding one for the Batman movies.

Hats off to you Hans! Looking forward to your soundtrack for the upcoming Superman movie, Man of Steel and the next Sherlock Holmes movie. 

Here’s wishing You Many More Happy Returns of the Day and a Long and Healthy Life ahead.
