American Beauty, Shawshank Redemption, Six Feet Under, The Green Mile, Spectre, Skyfall. I don’t need to go on. Thomas Newman has his credits, worthy credits. Now, this score for Passengers has been nominated for an oscar, so my credence means nothing. Mainly piano and electronics focused, but with occasional builds into HUGE 60 string ensembles.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 28th July 2017
While it may not be quite as innovative as, say, Steven Price’s score for Gravity, or Hans Zimmer’s for Interstellar, it is nevertheless on the same level of those scores for both its psychological and metaphysical impact. And like those films, which co-stars Jennifer Lawrence, is not a loud sonic and visual assault on the senses, but closer to 2001: A Space Odyssey in terms of feel, expansiveness, and grandeur, allowing Newman’s scoring genius to carry a gravitas more than worthy of comparisons to his legends like John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith.
