The music from some of our favourite films was produced by a talented composer from Merseyside.
John Murphy is behind the music for the new Suicide Squad film, to be released later this year, and he has swapped Bootle for Hollywood.
John has established an impressive career in the film industry, and you've probably heard his music without realising.
The dad-of-two, who started out playing in bands in Liverpool, began composing music for films in the early 1990s and scored his first hit with Leon The Pig Farmer.
Since then, his soundtrack works include 28 Days Later, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Millions, Snatch, and Les Misérables.
John, who now lives in Los Angeles, has previously told the ECHO he "got the chance" to do his first film in his 20s.
He said: “People have misconceptions with the job I do. They think I am hobnobbing with the stars all the time. I get to see them at premieres but I’m mostly working on my own in the studio.
“Once I’m working on a film, I sit with the director and get them to play me the film without music. I sit and think where the music should be.
“When you see a film without the music, it looks weird. There is something missing. With music you can create some urgency or depth to the film."
More recently, he told BMI : "Danny Boyle just rang me up one morning, said he was doing two dark and weird films for the BBC, and asked if we could meet up the next day and if I could bring my guitar."
His most recent work, according to IMDb, was the score for The Suicide Squad, which has now been completed.
The latest blockbuster based around the DC Comics supervillain team, the film is scheduled to be released theatrically and on the streaming platform HBO Max in the United States on August 6 this year.
