Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

A few weeks back, I got rather excited by the Man of Steel trailer music, which gave us a glimpse of the Hans Zimmer soundtrack for the first time. Now, that backing score has been officially released on Soundcloud by Watertower Records. It's called An Ideal Hope and isn't listed on the album tracklist - a trailer-only composition? - but it's a better version than the one that was recently leaked on YouTube.

Starting off with that quiet piano that got me all in a fluster, it's a glorious wee number, full of rising perfect fifths rather than Zimmer's trademark minor third; a John Williams nod that pays tribute to the original Superman theme without ever using it. If the Man of Steel soundtrack turns out like this, my ears will be rather happy.

Have a listen:

Cheers to Den of Geek for the spot. Head over there to hear more of my regular soundtrack musings.
