Film composer Hans Zimmer recently unveiled his new theme for “ABC World News With Diane Sawyer,” the newscast’s first musical revamp since 2000, accompanying the debut of a fresh logo and graphics.
While we’ve enjoyed his explosive work on Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Gladiator, we think his signature style may be a tad, well, too dramatic for the no-nonsense news show. What do you think?
(In case it wasn’t totally obvious, we made a few tweaks to the score in the video above to align it with the composer’s previous work. You can hear the unadulterated version on the ABC News site.)
