Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is currently the #1 movie at the box office, but BMI supported the film’s composer at a private screening and Q&A presented by the Society of Composers & Lyricists on the lot at Paramount Pictures in LA. Moderated by journalist and author, Jon Burlingame, the discussion about the project was kicked off by Burlingame reading letters of praise written to Kraemer about his score from legendary BMI composer Lalo Schfrin, who composed the original Mission Impossible theme (also used in Rogue Nation), and Randy Spendlove, who is President of Music, Paramount Pictures.
