I Love You", "X-Men: The Last Stand", "Rio", "Ice Age: The Meltdown", "The Bourne Identity" series, "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," "Robots", and numerous others. Powell's outstanding work on 2010's "How To Train Your Dragon" landed him two International Film Music Critics Association Awards (Score of The Year, Best Score for an Animated Feature) andearned him his first Academy Award nomination at the 83rd Academy Awards.
About his time in the studio with Jónsi the second time around, Powell tells TIME, "It was like him and me were having a baby... It was exactly between our two musical natures."

In addition to composing the score for "We Bought A Zoo," his original song, "Sticks and Stones" for 2010's How To Train Your Dragon, skyrocketed into a worldwide hit. His new release, "Where No One Goes" off the upcoming soundtrack has already garnered praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Death + Taxes, KEXP, NME, Rolling Stone, Filter Magazine and more.
