Australia Score - TV Trailer Pirates Pirates

Australia, the outback epic with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, is doing a lot of advertising. Check out the snippet of the score in those TV ads, remind anyone else of Pirates of The Caribbean? And that closing line - Nicole is channelling Daniel Day Lewis, straight from Last of the Mohicans.

If you listen to the soundtracks from both Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean, you can tell that Hans Zimmer is really trying to milk that 12/8 meter riff. I don't want to pass judgement, but it seems that David Hirschfelder is capitalizing on the popularity of this particular rhythmic phrase.
