Spider-Man: Far From Home

Michael Giacchino returns once again to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” The acclaimed composer wrote the music to 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and scored both it and this year’s sequel on the Newman Scoring Stage at Fox with a large AFM Local 47 orchestra conducted by Marshall Bowen III.

One of the most-acclaimed composers in the film industry today, Giacchino won an Academy Award for his poignant score for Disney Pixar’s “Up” and possesses an extraordinary amount of range, having composed the scores for both blockbuster spectacles and smaller-scale films.

In the latest installment of the Spider-Man saga, Peter Parker returns once again to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, wreaking havoc across the continent.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home” opens in theaters on July 2, 2019.
