Hanz Zimmer and The Magnificent Six

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is in Irish cinemas now, a good week ahead of the release in the United States.

And just for being super neat, you can have a musical treat. The score for the film doesn't release in most places until the 22nd of April but you can grab it right now. Possibly location depending.

Hanz Zimmer replaces James Horner as the head composer for the Spidey sequel - and that's a good thing because there wasn't a single memorable chord in the entire first film.

Zimmer aint alone. He's working with a supergrounp called The Magnificent Six on this score, including names like Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger, Junkie XLand David A. Stewart. And together they've created something pretty special.

The score includes the kind of sweeping music you expect from Zimmer but with a distint synthy, 80s edge that makes it much more memorable. The electronic angle feeds into the scenes including Jamie Foxx's villain Electro and sound utterly incredible in the cinema. There's also a fun Spidey theme that's much more comic-book flavoured than most movies in this genre and the romantic swells you expect.

I think its one of the best blockbuster scores in years, and perfectly befitting the really very impressive movie.

Head to Google Play to listen to a sample of the tracks.

That's the listing for the 2 disk version which also includes songs from Williams, Alicia Keys and more and its just a couple of quid more for an extra 11 tracks.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is in cinemas from the 16th of April.
