Zimmer has composed music for more than 100 films, including the blockbusters The Lion King, Rain Man, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Pirates Of The Caribbean and The Dark Knight.

The epic 10-part miniseries is based on the true stories of World War II Marines. It tracks the intertwined real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines: Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello), and John Basilone (Jon Seda) across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with Japanese forces on
