For Blitz – which will follow the escape of a child under the London bombings and the desperate search for his mother – the two artists find themselves in the historical genre, more than ten years after 12 Years a Slave. A register that Zimmer knows well, he who signed the scores of The Red line, Pearl Harboror Dunkirk (to recite nobody else but them).

In recent years, the composer has not been idle: we owe him the original soundtracks of Dune (Oscar winner for his music), Dying can wait, Top Gun: Maverick, The Son, The Creator.
