Ep. 46 - Rupert Gregson-Williams' 'Wonder Woman' (4K HDR)
Kid's Corner • Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Music, 15-Mar-2021
There is no question that Patty Jenkins' 'Wonder Woman' is considered to be one of the best superhero films to-date. One brilliant aspect of the movie is the score composed by Rupert Gregson-Williams, and this scene is one of his most poignant. Upon arriving at the front in Belgium, Diana goes alone through No Man's Land and captures the enemy trench which liberates the nearby village. It is at this moment that Diana truly reveals herself and through even the continued discovery of her own power, Rupert's music helps us understand her, and keeps us with her emotionally in every moment. We really feel her confidence as a force for good start to really flourish.
One thing to note here is that there is a small section that does have SFX - that is because the score cue was edited within the film to fit the scene, and oftentimes this differs from the soundtrack release which is a full, continuous cue. We have, however, utilized the full score cue where applicable so you can get a full experience of how the music is edited and fits into the film itself.
