Should you ever decide to make a high-octane glossy action Hollywood blockbuster and are looking for someone to compose a brassy and kickass soundtrack to complement the CGI wizardry on screen, '''Hans Florian Zimmer''' will be pretty high up on your list. Most famous for his music for ''Film/TheRock'', ''Film/CrimsonTide'', ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'', ''Disney/TheLionKing'', ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'', ''Film/RainMan'', ''Film/{{Inception}}'',''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' and (for the gamers out there), the theme for ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'', among some 200 movies he composed for. Of course, he did other genres, but its usually the big brass and violin numbers he wrote for action set pieces that get remembered.

--> '''Hans Zimmer:''' I wake up around noon, [[SmokingIsCool light a cigarette]], get a cup of coffee, sit in the bathtub for an hour and daydream, and I usually come up with some ideas... It's a very irresponsible life. The only decisions I make are about the notes I'm writing.

* CreatorBacklash: Zimmer ''hated'' his work on ''Film/TheRing'' so much a soundtrack album was never released. It was included with ''The Ring Two''.



* ProductionPosse: Owns a large studio where he trains and collaborates with a lot of other young composers from around the world helping them with conducting, writing additional music, or even co-composing. His future plans appear to be retirement with the focus of training more composers.

* StarMakingRole: His ''Disney/TheLionKing'' score, with Lebo M's help with choral arrangements, shot him to the JohnWilliams level of movie music big time.

** Well aware of his tendency to do this, Christopher Nolan ''[[AvertedTrope strictly forbade]]'' him from doing this for Interstellar, asking for an entirely original composition.
