Steve Jablonsky, Billion Dollar Composer

To coincide with the release of Battleship, Variety asked me to interview Steve Jablonsky, whose Transformers music transformed him into one of the most bankable composers in the business. He’s quiet and self-effacing. The main story explains how he got there and has quotes from Hans Zimmer and Michael Bay. This one looks specifically at Battleship; another, my favorite, looks at the music of Desperate Housewives; another examines his music for video games.
