Director Shawn Levy brought back composer Alan Silvestri for the third film in the trilogy. In his ongoing, decades-long career as a composer, Silvestri has scored some of the most iconically revered and profitable films in Hollywood history, amassing over a hundred credits to the tune of two Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, two Emmys, as well as three Grammy awards. While stylistically diverse, the unifying voice of Alan’s work is an unmistakable rhythmic melody whose themes continue to embody movie excitement and drama for generations of moviegoers.
Born in New York City and raised in Teaneck, New Jersey, Silvestri spent two years at the Berklee College of Music in Boston before coming to Hollywood. He composed the music for 1972’s THE DOBERMAN GANG and its sequel, THE AMAZING DOBERMAN. The 1970s witnessed the rise of energetic synth-pop scores, establishing Silvestri as the action rhythmatist for TV’s highway patrol hit CHiPs. This action driven score caught the ear of budding filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, whose hit film 1984’s ROMANCING THE STONE was the perfect first date for the composer and director and it’s success became the basis of a decades long collaboration between the filmmaker and composer that continues to the current day on such films as WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT?, WHAT LIES BENEATH, DEATH BECOMES HER, CONTACT, CAST AWAY, BEOWULF, THE CHRISTMAS CAROL, POLAR EXPRESS, and FORREST GUMP, which earned him an Oscar nomination.
Though the Zemeckis/Silvestri collaboration is legendary, Silvestri has scored well over 100 films of every imaginable style and genre. His energy and experimentation has brought excitement and emotion to numerous films including PREDATOR, JUDGE DREDD, THE ABYSS, SOAPDISH, THE MUMMY RETURNS, G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA, STUART LITTLE 1 and 2, LILO AND STITCH, and the recent films CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, and THE AVENGERS. Silvestri has composed the music to TV’s COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY, which earned him two Emmy Awards.
