“It was a thrill to write music that would play under Pierce Brosnan, an actor who previously portrayed an iconic spy; he brings to mind the kind of energy I hope my score captured,” said Beltrami.

Beltrami’s musical palette has since expanded to virtually all film genres.Beltrami has received two Academy Award nominations for Best Score. First, for 3:10 TO YUMA, starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, and shortly after for his score to the Academy award winning film for Best Picture, THE HURT LOCKER. Beltrami received a Golden Satellite Award in 2011 for Best Film Score of The Year for SOUL SURFER.
His recent projects include SNOWPIERCER, THE GIVER, THE WOLVERINE, TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE, THE SESSIONS, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, and WARM BODIES.
