Theme of the Week #15 – Ender's Game (Main Theme)


Track Title: Ender’s Game Main Theme
Movie: Ender’s Game
Composer(s): Steve Jablonsky
Theme of the Week: November 5, 2013

Steve Jablonsky, best known for his “Transformers” scores, kept his larger-than-life sound for “Ender’s Game”, but also took the time to develop a stronger tie with string solos for the film.

He claimed that “Ender’s Game” is, “big but also very personal.” Because of this he would use an 80 piece orchestra and 32 member choir for some scenes, while in other scenes he would use a simple solo instrument.

The main theme exemplifies both approaches, often carrying the motif with strings, but rounding out with a much bigger sound.

  1. Really.. a sequel to this wonderfull movie, could be a great mystery, scifi masterpiece. A great development for the character as a grown up… with deep explorations of meaning of life and adventures…

  2. ネタバレあり


  3. Loved the book, but its such a shame that the author is such an idiot I find it bizarre because he wrote a book about an outsider who is bullied by their peers but comes through in the end, but he is against gays? Weird…. I would have thought this kind of story would be very encouraging for a gay kid.

  4. Omg this is a joke, i hear good movie or even GAME soundtrack, i check who wrote it, OFC STEVE JABLONSKY, i feel like steve and hans zimmer are the only 2 making such epic soundtracks

  5. Damn, love this OST. It has everything that this movie and the original book stands for.
    Fear for unknown, Compassion for the formics, Ender's Loneliness from being alone as a kid and as a commander, demand for greatness from the adults, beauty of combat tactics, global strain between Russians and American Hegemony, Guilt for the genocide.

  6. This film could have been so much better than it was. It's not a bad movie by any means, but it glimpsed greatness, though it never truly got there. A real shame.

  7. Was not expecting greatness from this movie when I sat down to watch it last night, but damn was I impressed with it. This theme over the credits just made me bawl my eyes out, it's so strong and hopeful.

  8. so good. I was obsessed the moment I heard this composition in the background. I liked the movie aloot. wish they could make a sequel

  9. So, who is the original creator of these theme: Steve Jablonsky or Henry Jackman(almost the same theme in Captain America: Winter Soldier)?

  10. JUST AMAZING, it makes me shudder, makes me Sad, Stronger, Hopeful!!! From the time that I listened it I felt so emotional. I 'll be forever sad that they didn't continue with a sequel.
