How to Train Your Dragon
John Powell's only entry in the 2014 Classic FM Movie Music Hall of Fame, How to Train Your Dragon has soared 16 places since 2013.
The blockbuster animation won the hearts of children and adults alike, but Powell's soundtrack is pure action movie class. Powell is something of a minor Hollywood legend, having provided the soundtracks to some incredible money-shifting blockbusters throughout the years (try The Bourne trilogy, for starters). But with How To Train Your Dragon, he earned his first Academy Award nomination — and with two more sequels confirmed with him on board as composer, maybe we'll see him approaching the stage sometime soon.
