    Thomas Newman, Sam Mendes’ collaborator is scoring “He Named Me Malala”, a documentary movie is directed by Davis Guggenheim. I have an idea when Thomas Newman had collaborated with your best friend British film director Sam Mendes with movies like “American Beauty”, “Road to Perdition”, “Jarhead”, “Revolutionary Road” and “Skyfall”. Today, Thomas Newman is reuniting with your best friend and collaborator Sam Mendes with the movie “Spectre”.

    Back in 1984, Thomas Newman’s first film scoring was “Reckless” and it was directed by James Foley.

    He’s a legend. Thomas Newman is a legend.
