The Dark Knight Rises score is incredible: listen here

The soundtrack to Gotham's reckoning has arrived...



The Dark Knight Rises isn't just Christopher Nolan's last Batman film, it's score-maestro Hans Zimmer's too - and if the samples below are to be believed, he's going out on a massive high.

There's only 30 seconds of each song available to listen to now, but even those snatches are enough to send shivers up every single Batfan's spine.
Whether it's the Terminator-esque sounds of Gotham's Reckoning slowly building to Bane's theme, or the Batman Begins referencing refrain of Rise, there's just so much here to be excited about.  
We reckon this sounds like it's Zimmer's most beautiful Batman score, but have a listen below and tell us what you think!

What did you think of the score samples? Tell us below!

      Love it. Could, and often do, just listen to Zimmer scores all day.

      Wow, full circle indeed, there are more than a few passing nods to Batman Begins in there. Sweet!

      Mind If I Cut In ? has surely got to be Catowman's theme.

      I think the song titles could be giving more away than it first appears. Haven't decided if this is a good or bad thing yet though.

      Amazing!!! Sounds like it's influenced a bit by Arkham City's score a bit...

      I have been blown away by Zimmer's scoring for Nolan's movies. Be interesting to see how he fares without Newton-Howard's input as well. (I also loved each that each track title for Batman Begins was a breed of bat!!)
