The comparison is there, but it's not like it's more derivative than usual for Zimmer. One of the best and most iconic Nolan pieces of Zimmer music to date is completely derivative of Thin Red Line. But in execution, distinctly different emotion and tone. Time has this ambiguous sense of wonder and sadness, Thin Red Line's version of the same piece is deeply sorrowful.

*only listened to a minute of this at a random place in the track

That's all true. But I thought the score in the prologue was more unique, this one sounds more generic. But it's obviously just one track, and it will for sure make hearts race.

I was so excited when I saw that they released a part of the OST lol

Sounds intense. And like I expected, there are some synth sounds in there

"Supermarine" refers to the Spitfires, so I'm picturing an epic dogfight scene with this playing in the background :o

It's not really anything crazy, just a couple different chords mixed with the usual bombastic zimmer
