This is of course an incomplete list, missing most international cinema as well as most of the countless franchises of Golden Age Hollywood. The biggest omission I know of is Akira Ifukube, since I didn't have the heart to try to figure out the order and interrelation between all the Toho kaiju movies, as well as which ones had original Ifukube scores versus which were just tracked-in cues from earlier scores. I also did not include sequels yet to be released whose composers have been announced, like Halloween [2018], How to Train Your Dragon 3 and Star Wars episode 9.

How about the Alien franchise?

Alien (Jerry Goldsmith)
Aliens (James Horner)
Alien3 (Elliot Goldenthal)
Alien Resurrection (John Frizzell)

Also the Alien & Predator crossover movies:

Alien Vs Predator (Harald Kloser)
Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (Brian Tyler)

...and the other Predator films:

Predators (John Debney)
The Predator (Henry Jackman) (admittedly not yet released at time of posting)

How about the Alien franchise?

Alien (Jerry Goldsmith)
Aliens (James Horner)
Alien3 (Elliot Goldenthal)
Alien Resurrection (John Frizzell)


The article is focused on composers who score more than one film in a series which is why your examples aren't included.

Well, you should include PROMETHEUS and ALIEN: COVENANT too. But yeah -- still different composers, although the HGW theme appears in both movies (as does the Goldsmith music, of course).

What about

Children Of The Corn (1984 Jonathan Elias)
Children Of The Corn (2009 Jonathan Elias & Nathaniel Morgan)
although the 2009 is more of a remake than a sequel.

Sniper 1 & 2 (Gary Chang, although Zimmer & Mancina also did some stuff for the first)

What The Bleep Do We Know & What The Bleep: Down The Rabbit Hole (Chris Franke)

How about the Alien franchise?

Alien (Jerry Goldsmith)
Aliens (James Horner)
Alien3 (Elliot Goldenthal)
Alien Resurrection (John Frizzell)

Ah, fair enough, my bad! I clearly didn't read the opening text carefully enough... interesting list though!

Robert Folk scored the whole of the Police Academy series.

Also, Lalo Schifrin didn't score The Enforcer (Jerry Fielding) but did score Sudden Impact.

did some extensive research on ifukube once for a concert program of his kaiju music and found this exhaustive filmography if it's helpful:

http://www.akiraifukube.org/filmography.htm

Robert Folk scored the whole of the Police Academy series.

Also, Lalo Schifrin didn't score The Enforcer (Jerry Fielding) but did score Sudden Impact.


Thanks for catching those. Those are exactly the kind of corrections I'm looking for.

Enforcer/Sudden Impact was just sloppiness on my part, I should know better.

I was working mostly from lists of currently working composers and lists of deceased composers, so Robert Folk got caught in the middle. (I almost forgot Brad Fiedel for the same reason)

Missing:

MARK McKENZIE
"Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse" (2015)
