Back in April of this year, composer Michael Giacchino began recording the score for this summer’s [Spider-Man: Homecoming] 1. For those of you who may not know, some of Giacchino’s work includes the scores to many great films over the past few years, including The Incredibles, Up, Star Trek Into Darkness, Inside Out, and Jurassic World to name a few. This isn’t Giacchino’s first foray into MCU however; he wrote and conducted the score for last year’s Doctor Strange as well. Considering his impressive list of credits, it was great news to hear that he would be composing the theme for Spidey. Late last month, we also got a brief listen to his Spidey inspired fanfare for the opening credits of the film, which you can a listen to here. That got us even more excited to hear the actual score for the film, but we were unsure when we would get a preview. Well, wonder no more, because today, exactly three weeks before the film’s release, Sony has released a preview of the suite for Homecoming, check it out below:
This is the suite for the film, meaning that there are several different musical selections from the score cut together, but the main theme for the film is definitely in there. It’s upbeat and powerful, as Spidey’s theme should be, but there are also some more ominous selections mixed in there as well, hopefully meaning that we can expect some darker moments for Michael Keaton‘s Vulture.
What do you think of the score? Does this get you more hyped for Homecoming?
