His other scores include The Homesman directed by Tommy Lee Jones, the zombie comedy Warm Bodies for Summit Entertainment, the latest installment of the Bruce Willis action series A Good Day To Die Hard, Snowpiercer starring Chris Evans and directed by Joon-ho Bong, the Brad Pitt action thriller World War Z, James Mangold’s The Wolverine, the remake of the classic horror hit Carrie, The Fantastic Four reboot directed by Josh Trank, and Columbia Pictures’ holiday comedy The Night Before starring Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordon Levitt.

Born in New York, Beltrami studied music at the Yale School of Music, then in Italy, before apprenticing with legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith in L.A. “Maybe it’s because I’m partly schizophrenic to begin with,” he says, “but it seems to be refreshing to work on something for a while, then…take a break and work on something that’s the complete opposite. It’s fun.”
