When it comes to director/composer partnerships in the movie industry, few have produced such amazing results as the one between Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer. Dunkirk will be the sixth Nolan film Zimmer has worked on. The previous five include Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.
Dunkirk is still a few weeks away from being released, but we have just been treated to our very first listen of what’s in store for the soundtrack. WaterTower Music released the track on July 7th. The title is “Supermarine.”
You can listen to it below. It comes in at eight minutes long, but it’s honestly a thrilling ride from start to finish.
One of the most impressive aspects of this track is how it clearly draws on the film itself. Dunkirk takes place during World War II, and throughout the song, you can almost hear the sound of sirens, alerting the soldiers that danger is fast approaching.
In addition to the track itself, we also have the full listing of the soundtrack. None of the titles seem to be too spoiler-y, but you should read at your own discretion.
- The Mole
- We Need Our Army Back
- Shivering Soldier
- The Tide
- Regimental Brothers
- The Oil
- Variation 15 (Dunkirk)
- End Titles
