MUNICH — The Zurich Film Festival is to honor composer Hans Zimmer with a special lifetime award.

The award will be presented on Oct. 1 at the Tonhalle Zurich at a ceremony that will feature excerpts from some of Zimmer’s scores, such as those for “The Lion King” and “Gladiator.”

German-born Zimmer has scored more than 100 films, which have, combined, grossed over $22 billion at the box office. He has won an Academy Award, two Golden Globes, three Grammys and a Tony. He received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2010.

Some of his most recent works include “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “12 Years a Slave,” Ron Howard’s “Rush,” Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” the Christopher Nolan-directed films “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” and Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.”

Some of Zimmer’s most notable works include “Rain Main,” “Driving Miss Daisy,” “Thelma & Louise,” “The Thin Red Line,” “Mission: Impossible II,” “Hannibal,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, the “Kung Fu Panda” and “Madagascar” films, “Frost/Nixon” and “The Da Vinci Code.”

Zimmer is in production on the score for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar,” which is releasing in November.
