It is a favorite soundtrack choice for some rather cerebral movies and TV series. Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major is famous yet unknown, stately yet dance-like. The second movement Allegretto is especially loved by audience, who insisted on an immediate encore at its premier in 1813.

The second movement is used in this entire scene. The King's Speech (2010) is the most famous and recent movie use of Beethoven 7th's Movement II (Allegretto) at the climactic moment of this movie. Beethoven's Symphony No 7, especially the second movement, is also used in other movies such as White House Down (2013), Knowing (2009), The Man from Earth (2007), The Darjeeling Limited (2007), Irreversible (2002) and other TV series, including Carl Sagan's Cosmos (1980) concluding episode, where he used 3 other movements.

The Seventh Symphony's premiere concert was performed to benefit the soldiers wounded a few months earlier in the battle of Hanau. Viennese audiences, miserable from Napoleon's occupations and hopefully awaiting a victory over him, embraced the symphony's energy and beauty.
It’s tempting to feel sorry for Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. Hidden away amid the Fifth (the most famous opening four notes in the history of classical music, the Sixth (how could anyone fail to love the 'Pastoral'?) and the mighty colossus that is his Ninth, you feel as if the Seventh is a work that could easily get forgotten.
