It’s good to have Alan Silvestri working on the score for Captain America: The First Avenger. He’s worked on classics like Back to the Future and Predator. Out of all the recent hero movies that have come out (Thor, Green Lantern, X-Men: First Class), Captain America’s score sounds the most heroic and already is sounding epic. A part of me did wish that James Horner did the score, since he did The Rocketeer.
Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22, 2011 and is directed by Joe Johnston (The Rocketeer), starring Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell and Hugo Weaving.
