After working with Hans Zimmer in the music department of a handful of prior films, including as a member of Hans Zimmer & the Magnificent Six on the Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack, Junkie XL (aka Tom Holkenborg) receives a co-composer credit for the pair's score to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Pulsing and ominous, the DC Comics franchise entry features clamorous orchestral fare boosted by occasional choir and electronics, altogether providing near operatic accompaniment as the two superheroes are forced to do battle. The score recording offers over 70 minutes of music, with a deluxe edition adding 20 minutes to the playing time. ~ Marcy Donelson
