Hans Zimmer - Hams Zimmer Records 'Aurora' Tribute For Dark Knight Rises Shooting Victims


Hans Zimmer, the composer for each of the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman films, has recorded a tribute song for the victims of the 'Batman' shootings that took place in Colorado last week.
The Oscar winning composer has put his eight-and-a-half minute song, 'Aurora', online and it is being sold for donations from 10 cents to $2,500 (£1,593). Comments for the song online have read that it is a sombre, vocal lament and has been praised by fans both for it's music and for the generous meaning behind its conception.
The song's title comes from the town where accused 'Joker' wannabe James Holmes allegedly killed 12 people and wounded 58 during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises. His trail is still on going, but is expected to receive life imprisonment or perhaps even the death penalty.
Zimmer is not the first of the Batman ensemble to visit those wounded in the mass-shootings, as Christian Bale has also been on hand to show his support by visiting some of the victims in hospital.
Initially expected to become one of this year's standout films at the box office, ticket sales are so far not as good as first predicted -with the opening overshadowed by the shootings and media coverage now being dominated by the Olympics. That said, it is still one of the year's highest-grossing movies so far.
