Good news for 80s soundtrack score collectors. La La Land Records will be releasing the full expanded score for Hans Zimmer's Black Rain sometime in 2012 or 2013.
Ridley Scott's Japan based cop thriller was an explosive action movie featuring a fantastic oriental based synthesized and heavy percussion score, along with orchestrations by Shirley Walker.
Until now, a bootleg has been the only way to hear this score, so this should be a good quality release.
Those with good ears will also recognise that Zimmer based his Batman theme on one of his Black Rain themes, with the theme virtually identical. Zimmer is not one to waste a great track, and reused it in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
