Of the many great things about Christopher Nolan’s final Batman blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises, Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer’s bombastic, sensational score is certainly one of the greatest. Zimmer, who previously brought musical life to films like Gladiator, The Last Samurai, and Pirates of the Caribbean, helps create a Gotham City that feels almost real. Reality Jockey is looking to finish the job with The Dark Knight Rises Z+, an “augmented soundtrack experience.”
Similar to the developer’s work on the Inception soundtrack, another Nolan-Zimmer collaboration, The Dark Knight Rises Z+ takes sounds from the real world and filters them through the sounds and music of the film to immerse the user in an altered reality. Alongside its atmospheric audio effects, the app features a BAT flight simulator, commentary with Nolan and Zimmer, and an extended “Origins” soundtrack with new, exclusive songs.
Enter Gotham before it turns to ashes. The Dark Knight Rises Z+ is available now for free on the App Store. The Dark Knight Rises is in theaters now.
