I watched Eternals in IMAX, and IMAX has some pretty high standards in terms of visual and audio quality in their cinemas, so maybe that's why the music was easier for me to hear? I've certainly have had that problem of the score being too quiet (The Boss Baby 2 comes to mind), but I think that usually happens in standard cinemas that may have speakers of dubious quality.

If I were to take a guess, maybe with modern TV show soundtracks, record labels feel the need to encapsulate the music of each episode with at *least* the thoroughness that a movie soundtrack would typically encapsulate the score of its movie, so they'll try to give each episode an EP or even an LP album. But yeah, if shows can get such opulent treatment, why not longer films like Eternals?
