New entry. This year's highest new entry is Hans Zimmer's score for Interstellar

Christopher Nolan's 2014 sci-fi blockbuster was a huge box office hit. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, the film is set on a near-future Earth.

Humanity is facing extinction because of drought, famine and extreme climate change, when a rip in the space-time continuum offers an opportunity — if a small crew of astronauts volunteers to embark on an interstellar voyage.

Hans Zimmer atmospheric score is part sound-art, part classical music (there's even a part for organ) and it underlines the isolation felt by the charaters in the film.
