The Gray Man should be one of the best movies of 2022. It has an all-star cast, the Russo brothers as directors, and a budget that makes it Netflix’s most expensive movie ever.
As with all Hollywood blockbusters, music is used throughout the movie to give each scene just the right mood, either through songs or a cinematic score.
But what songs are on The Gray Man’s soundtrack, and who wrote the epic music for the movie?
The Gray Man Release Date And Plot
The Gray Man was released on Netflix on July 22, 2022.
Based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel of the same name, the film tells the story of CIA agent Court Gentry, also known by his codename Sierra Six.
Gentry was once an Agency-approved, highly-skilled killer who was rescued from a federal prison by Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton).
However, despite being one of the world’s best assassins, Gentry becomes the target of a former CIA ally, Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), who hunts him across the globe and will stop at nothing to kill him.

Who Composed The Score of the grey man ?
The Gray Man features a lot of licensed songs as well as a badass cinematic score by composer Henry Jackman.
The musician was born in London and has been making music since he was in school. He studied classical music at Eton College and the University of Oxford.
After putting out three studio albums between 2003 and 2007, Jackman switched to making music for movies. Since then, he has worked on some big movies, TV shows, and video games.
Henry Jackman’s work includes the Captain America movies The Winter Soldier and Civil War, as well as the TV series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He has also written music for the recent Jumanji and Kingsman movies, Detective Pikachu, Disney’s Big Hero 6, X-Men: First Class, the Russo brothers’ movie Cherry, Netflix’s Extraction, and Amazon’s series The Man in the High Castle, where he also worked with Dominic Lewis.
The modern and bombastic score by Henry Jackman is perfect for the action-packed thriller, and the album of the score is now available on services like Spotify and Apple Music to coincide with the release of The Gray Man.
