Hans Zimmer Would Like You to Chant For Him For the Dark Knight Rises Soundtrack

Audience Participation

Prolific Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer is working on Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises, and he is calling on everyone for their help. He is interested in recording a “worldwide chant” and is now seeking submissions — from you! And you, and you, and you, and everyone else who isn’t in the room! You’d probably like to know a little more about this, and we have just the details you are looking for.

This is actually not the first time a filmmaker used crowdsourcing for a movie. Back in 2010, at San Diego Comic Con, Joseph Kosinski, director of Tron: Legacy, asked the crowd present at his panel to recite a series of phrases that ended up in the movie’s “Game Grid” sequence. Zimmer’s request, however, will be a bit more widespread.

We need to hear your voices! Now and Loud! We are creating the sound of a worldwide chant. Everyone come and be part of it. It’s easy:

There is no such thing as out-of-tune, no timing we can’t fix later. If you mumble, growl, scream or whisper, it’s all good. Make it yours. If you only get halfway through, no problem! Do it alone, bring your friends, but do it with energy and commitment.

Let your voice be heard and be a part of our adventure!”

And here is what you’ll be asked to chant:

Because this is a Christopher Nolan movie, there is absolutely no telling how this chant will figure into TDKR. Some commenters are speculating that this will be related to Bane. But if you’d like to participate — and it requires so little effort and time that you’d be a silly person not to — head over to Zimmer’s page at and follow the instructions. And then you can brag about being in a Batman movie! You can even tell them you were Batman … if you have really trusting and/or stupid friends.
