      That’s great, as is Zimmer, but isn’t it time for a few new composers to get a chance? Between Nolan’s reliance on Zimmer and Spielberg’s on John Williams these movies are starting to sound alike.

        I think its worse with Actors. Same faces all the time. Can’t see the role, just the celebrity gossip pages.

        • Thomas says:

          Nolan hasn’t worked with two of the three main stars ever before, and only worked with Anne Hathaway once. As for Michael Caine, he has become a staple of the Nolan films, being in all but Insomnia and Memento. But Nolan always has gotten fresh faces for starring roles.
