The hotly anticipated sequel to Creed (2015) finally hits cinemas this week. Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson will all be returning in Creed II (2018) so it's only fitting that composer Ludwig Göransson returns too. Like its predecessor, this film is accompanied by two soundtrack releases: Ludwig's underscore and an album of contemporary tracks. Both of these soundtracks were released last week.
After 6 years, Wreck-It Ralph (2012) finally receives a sequel this week. Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) sees the return of John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman as well as composer Henry Jackman (Jumanji (2017), Kingsman (2017, 2014)). The soundtrack will be officially released on Friday (30th November) and is currently available to pre-order, but it is available to stream.
