Sonic the Hedgehog score

While the early marketing efforts for Paramount’s upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie have resulted in some…odd imagery, we now know who will be providing the score for when the blue hedgehog is racing through the streets of San Francisco. Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL), who composed the scores for films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Dark Tower, will compose the film’s music.

Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Score

We can’t say enough good things about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The film ranked highly on the /Film team’s cumulative Best Movies of 2018, and we’re rooting for the movie to take home the Oscar for Best Animated Film next month. But we wish the film also earned another nomination too.

Composer Daniel Pemberton‘s work on the film’s pulsing, contemporary score is incredible. Listening to the score will fill you with such energy, and it easily allows you to recall the most memorable moments in the movie. However, since Oscar gold isn’t in the cards for Pemberton, we’re willing to take the consolation prize of the Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse score getting a vinyl release in March. Read More »
