Some of his works in film include the original scores for Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners, Sicario, and Arrival, and James Marsh's The Theory of Everything. Jóhann was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score for both "The Theory of Everything" and "Sicario", and won a Golden Globe for Best Original Score for the former.

"A Model Of The Universe" - composition from the original score to the 2014 motion picture by Icelandic composer/producer Johann Johannsson. "The Theory Of Everything" is a 2014 British film directed by James Marsh and penned by Anthony McCarten.
