One of the world’s most popular characters is back in The Amazing Spider-Man
. Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
One of the big names in modern film music, James Horner, wrote the score having more than 100 to his credit. He is best know as the composer of the orchestral film soundtrack, Titanic
, in 1997. He is the winner of two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes (in both cases Best Original Score for Titanic
and Best Original Song for "My Heart Will Go On" in the same film), and gained eight further Academy Award nominations. His best-known work includes the soundtracks of such classics as Aliens
(1995), A Beautiful Mind
(2001) and Avatar
(2009). Horner’s music underlines both the exciting action of the film and its personal, touching, romantic moments. Seeking a composer who could express both grandeur and intimacy, movie director Marc Webb felt that Horner was a genius at exactly that. "I wanted to create a score that felt massive and huge but also intimate and small." (Webb).
