Superman is up two places in the 2014 chart — but where in the chart is Hans Zimmer's new soundtrack for Man of Steel?
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's John Williams, with yet another hefty soundtrack fit for this iconic movie. Still hot from hitting the stratosphere with Star Wars, Williams pulled out another thrilling march for Christopher Reeve's debut in the spandex body suit. In complete contrast to the long process of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Williams's score for Superman was one of the last aspects of the film to be added. Brought in to replace Jerry Goldsmith, who scored director Richard Donner's film The Omen two years earlier, Williams conducted the London Symphony Orchestra through a very entertaining score.
