    Hans Zimmer Says He's Listening To Verdi & Goldfrapp As He Prepares 'The Dark Knight Rises' Score

    Though it's been known for a while now and pretty much expected, back in May it was confirmed that Hans Zimmer would once again reteam with Christopher Nolan for his currently filming "The Dark Knight Rises."

    First Listen: 3 Clips From Alexandre Desplat's Haunting Score For 'The Tree Of Life'

    While the overblown Lars Von Trier-Nazi-gate has quickly raced to the top of the Cannes headlines, you might recall that earlier this week a guy named Terrence Malick finally unveiled his highly anticipated "The Tree Of Life."
