Many of the blockbuster movies we’ve come to know and love are scored by film composer Brian Tyler.
“Avengers: Age of Ultron.” “Fast & Furious.” “The Expendables.”
Tyler has composed more than 70 films and was named Film Composer of the Year at the 2014 Cue Awards. The busy artist is featured in the new documentary “Score: A Film Music Documentary,” in theaters now.
The acclaimed documentary brings Hollywood’s elite composers together to give viewers a privileged look inside the musical challenges and creative secrecy of the world’s most international music genre: the film score.
“Score” contains interviews with dozens of film composers who discuss their craft and the magic of film music while exploring the making of the most iconic and beloved scores in history: “James Bond”, “Star Wars,” “Indiana Jones,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Titanic,” “The Social Network,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Psycho.”
On behalf of the film’s release we decided to highlight a few of Tyler’s most iconic scores.
