Filmmaker Gareth Edwards (Rogue One) pits man against machine in his latest sci-fi action epic The Creator, which features a dramatic soundtrack to heighten the action.


Amid a future war between humans and AI, The Creator follows an ex-special forces soldier named Joshua (John David Washington), who is recruited to hunt down the titular character - who has designed a weapon of mass destruction using advanced AI, in the form of a child called Alphie (Madeleine Yuna Voyles).

It might be set in 2065, but The Creator features a number of familiar songs, including tracks by Radiohead and Deep Purple, as well as an inspirational score from composer Hans Zimmer.

Speaking in a featurette video ahead of the movie's release, Edwards revealed that Zimmer was his "number one choice" to score the film. "I sent him this little taste of the movie and he absolutely loved it, and he was like, 'Okay, I’m in, let’s do it,'" he explained.

Read on for a full list of the songs featured in The Creator.
