It's the moment so many DC fans have been waiting for. The hotly anticipated Aquaman (2018) hits UK cinemas this Wednesday, starring Jason Momoa and Amber Heard. Rupert Gregson-Williams' score for Wonder Woman (2017) must have made an impression on director James Wan as he's employed him for the latest edition of the Justice League franchise. The soundtrack is not currently available.
In keeping with the superhero theme, also out on Wednesday is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). Starring Shameik Moore, the animated addition to the Marvel franchise is underscored by Daniel Pemberton, who has previously composed scores for One Strange Rock (2018) and Black Mirror (2017). The soundtrack is not currently available.

If superhero films aren't your thing, perhaps you'd prefer Friday's offerings. Craig William Macneill's latest project Lizzie (2018) stars Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart, and follows the story of the infamous 1892 Borden family murders. Taking on the underscore is Jeff Russo who you may know from scoring TV shows such as Fargo (2014-2017) and Power (2014-2019). The soundtrack is available to stream and download now.

On the small screen, the fifth series of CBS's Madam Secretary comes to Sky Witness on Thursday. Barbara Hall's American political drama, starring Téa Leoni, will continue to be underscored by music production company Transcenders who have also created scores for Black-ish and Gossip Girl. The soundtrack is not currently available.
Also on Thursday, the third series of Michael Schur's The Good Place comes to E4. Starring Kristen Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil and Ted Danson, this comedy series sees characters explore the afterlife and the meaning of being 'good'. The score will continue to be composed by David Schwartz in series 3, who you may know from Arrested Development and Lady Dynamite. The soundtrack is not currently available.

Friday is a big night on Netflix UK. The Christmas Special of immensely popular series Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina will hit the platform, scored by Adam Taylor. Taylor has recently made a name for himself as the composer of sci-fi drama The Handmaid's Tale. The soundtrack is not currently available.
Also on Netflix, Fuller House returns for a fourth season on Friday. The series music has been composed by Jesse Frederick and Bennett Salvay who interestingly both worked on the original series Full House back in the '80s and '90s. The soundtrack is not currently available.
And finally, the third series of dystopian Netflix original Travelers premieres on Friday. American film composer Adam Lastiwka underscores the time travel, who is probably best known for his work on Hostiles (2017) and Body of Lies (2008). The soundtrack is not currently available.
