Entertainment Roundup

A few lucky members of the show had the opportunity to be on the scoring stage for the next Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Privileged? Ab-SO-lutely!

Thanks to official “friend of the show” Michael Giacchino, Preston Elliot, his family, and Nick McIlwain were invited to watch as Michael and the orchestra at 20th Century Fox as they scored many scenes from the movie, which hits theaters in July.

In this video, the guys chat with Michael about “Spider-Man” and get a sneak peek at the projects he’ll be working on in the near future:

Not only were the show members excited for this behind the scenes experience, but Michael, a lifelong fan of WMMR, loved showing off his work. “No one gets to see this side of things, no ever gets to visit this stuff!”

Michael, who grew up in Riverside, NJ, and who won an Oscar for the Pixar movie, Up, continues to work on some of the biggest and best movies Hollywood has to offer. His resume includes “Lost”, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Mission Impossible III and Ghost Protocol, Inside Out, Jurassic World, Doctor Strange, Zootopia, the latest Star Trek movies, and a little indie flick called Star Wars: Rogue One.

We’re proud to see a South Jersey guy do so well and achieve such success and we’re grateful for the friendship!
