This week, we revisit Danny Elfman’s score for Wanted, starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie and Terence Stamp. Den Of Geek says of the track, “The Little Things” is “a slithering, Cult-like rock anthem that’s just as curvaceous and sexy as Wanted star, Angelina Jolie.” Enough said.
If you want to keep up with Danny Elfman’s recent work, his latest score can be found in The End Of The Tour movie, starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg, available now on DVD and On Demand (get it on iTunes Movies).
