I want to thank you Empire for this very interesting read. John Powell has been quiet for a few years but it seems like he's finally back, and it's a great news. Thanks again!

A nice reminder of why Powell was at one time one of my favourite composers, shame you missed his Italian Job score on this list. But he really needs to get out of scoring animation films, as his action film soundtracks are consistently great from Face/Off to Bourne.

I'm afraid he won't... I think animation movies give an enormous artistic freedom and he seems to enjoy that, far more than the temp-track and "required sound" of most live action movies... He basically said that in this interview: every epic movie has to sound like The Dark Knight, every thriller has to sound like Bourne. And I don't think he likes that.

Btw, he dropped Greengrass on Captain Phillips, he dropped Doug Liman on Edge of Tomorrow... I'm note sure they even asked him, but the opposite would surprise me.
