“The Batman” trailer has intense acting and fight scenes and a memorable music score composed by Michael Giacchino.

When it comes to filmmaking, music can make or break a production because music shapes how imagery is perceived on the screen. Music plays into a person’s emotions. The subtle change of a scene can dramatically change the interpretation of a scene.

A scored version of a scene is powerful, showing how music can create a language and its own emotion. Therefore, when a score is working well in a film, it communicates with an unspoken language. It conveys the character’s mental state in ways that transcend the limitation of speech.

The scored music also foreshadows the introduction of a character communicating early on the end of the film. Therefore, a good score provides a feeling that tells us what the world sounds like about the characters and the consideration that best emphasizes their emotions and inner dialogue.

Robert Pattinson stars in the latest, “The Batman” teaser. He looks like the grittiest, most tortured version of the caped crusader to darken the big screen.  “The Batman” will appear on the big screen on March 4, 2022, directed by Matt Reeves.

The movie features a dark new look to some well-known villains. Catwoman portrayed by Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano stars as the Riddler, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.  Jeffrey Wright is Commissioner Gordon, while Andy Serkis is Bruce Wayne’s faithful butler Alfred.

This standalone version of “The Batman” is unique from other versions of the character.

Michael Giacchino composed the memorable Marvel Studios fanfare that plays over the opening Marvel logo. He is also responsible for the noteworthy “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Doctor Strange,” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” musical scores.

The ominous music and the imagery as “The Batman” walks towards the indisposed Penguin adds to the chill-inducing moment. Best of all, “The Batman” musical score serves as a great reminder of how the power of a great score can elevate the scene to a new level.
