Composer Hans Zimmer does not like to repeat, especially when working on the sequels. So he promises to come up with something new for "The Dark Knight 2: The Legend Continues", one of the most anticipated projects of summer 2012.
For a film by Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight 2" Hans Zimmer has designed musical score, based on the sounds of crowds, he suggested that people all over the world send him to record his vote, which he uses to create the soundtrack.
"It seemed like a good idea - have a part of monotone scores discordant tune. So, I thought," But what I will make hundreds of thousands of people do this? "And then we have organized a Web site in Germany, which sent wishing to record their votes. Success rather curious. "
"You have to watch the sequel as a completely independent film. Before I started," Sherlock Holmes "and before Chris started shooting, I conceived the idea. I went to the music department of Warner Bros. And asked:" I have already had the right to order a couple of days the biggest, most insane band in order to conduct an experiment for "Dark Knight"? If everything goes right, if the result does not like me or Chris, we will pretend that these two days and was not at all. "
"I had the idea to write music, or in any other way to get the orchestra to play differently. And, in general, it is possible, and the passages of our experiment began to appear in the trailer. In my possession are 25 minutes, very radical, very unlike anything that the material. There were two excellent points. First, when Chris came to the recording studio and has welcomed and appreciated what I was doing there. A second point that I am, in a sense, think cooler is the fact that the musicians had never before worked in this way, this experience very much. And months later, when I was working on "Sherlock", the band is still remembered those two days. So I know I'm on the right track. However, my only enemy right now - this time because I have too many ideas. "
"As for Chris, we always talk about him the same thing:" He's so secretive. "Well, I think this has two main reasons. First, in order to get a really good result, you should remain with yourself. And if all you are watching via the Internet, I think it interferes with creativity. And I think "The Dark Knight" - a perfect example that demonstrates this idea. All know that we are making a film about Batman. But as long as it went into the rolling, one could not imagine what it would be, this new film about Batman. "
Let no one on the big screen, and in the TV show, but, according to a French edition of "Télé 2 Semaines", Gwyneth Paltrow offered the role of cinema legend Marlene Dietrich. Two-part TV film "Marlene" will be shot by the BBC and cable channel HBO.

The film tells about the decisive moments in the career Dietrich, starting with the work at the theater in Berlin, before the start of cooperation with Josef von Sternberg, who took Marlene in the famous "Blue Angel" and, as a consequence, about Hollywood actress's career.
Beginning in the fifties, Dietrich has long played in cabarets in the world's largest cities. If her role will really be given to Paltrow, it does not have to fear for the musical performances. The star of "Shakespeare in Love" recently starred in the drama "Country Strong” where she played the country music singer, and recorded all the songs by herself.
It is unknown who will depart the role of actor Jean Gaben, regarded as the main love of Marlene Dietrich, but it is likely that producers will invite someone from the biggest stars of French cinema.
