Henry Jackman scores The Predator
Posted on September 14, 2018 by Dan Goldwasser
Earlier this summer, composer Henry Jackman recorded his score music for The Predator, the latest entry in the sci-fi action series. Directed by Shane Black (who also starred in the original 1987 film), the film’s scoring sessions took place at the Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox, and ScoringSessions.com is excited to bring our readers exclusive photos from the session!
