We’ve seen trailers, posters, interviews, featurettes and behind the scenes footage and now Warner Bros. have released the full Hans Zimmer soundtrack for their brand new movie, The Dark Knight Rises. The score has been running around in my mind for the last few days now as I’ve been ramping up my expectation on what will most likely be the biggest movie of the year so far (agree or will The Avengers stay strong?).

Empire have debuted the brand new 15 track music score for the latest Christopher Nolan Batman movie which I’ve embedded below. Seems odd they’d release the entire thing for us to stream online but I’m happy they have! Check it out below and get your mind ready for the film’s release next Friday 20th July. EXCITING!!! You can pre-order the score right here on Amazon.
