There’s no denying Alan Silvestri’s successful film career. He has scored famous music for a range of films, including such greats as Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Predator – even Lilo & Stitch. That doesn’t mean all films he scores will be great however; he’s also been involved in the likes of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life, Maid in Manhattan and Stuart Little 2. However, he has already proven his worth as far as Marvel is concerned, already having scored for the Captain America: The First Avenger and the first Avengers film. So it’s no great surprise he’s been hired for the upcoming two Avengers films.
Now admittedly, since he’s involved in a big budget project like this, he may well be a little biased. Yet we don’t often hear from composers talking about the quality of the films they’re scoring – especially not before they’re even released! But Silvestri has…
While picking up his Icon Award at the Film, TV and Visual Media Awards, he said in his acceptance speech that he’s seen early footage of the upcoming Avengers, for which he’s currently scoring the music, and says that it’s “everything we could have hoped for.”
Good news for everyone looking forward to the film, which is a lot of people. Anticipation is phenomenally high for this movie, it’s good to hear some positive feedback already. Let’s hope everything else we hear continues to be good!
