Friday plays host to the release of two films, the first of which is Joe Cornish's The Kid Who Would Be King. The family film is soundtracked by London-based collaborative artist collective Electric Wave Bureau who have little composing credits to their name, but have worked within the music departments of big films such as Lucy (2014), Paddington (2014) and Paddington 2 (2017). Maybe this is the beginning of more composer jobs for the collective.
The second film out on Friday is Matthew Heineman's A Private War. The story of celebrated war correspondent Marie Colvin is underscored by American composer and musician H. Scott Salinas. Recently, Salinas has been predominantly working on TV series such as Warrior, The Trade and Allegiance.
