I'd name the usual suspects for film scoring - Zebra 2/HZ and Dune 2/3
Weapons of choice (subject to change):
Godin Redline, Kuassa, Fuse Audio, Audiority, Roland A-500pro, Dune, Dagger, ANA, GForce, Reaper

Depends on what you want from your drones, doesn't it? Like how many oscillators, how many overtones, how much potential inharmonicity and all that? Some not mentioned so far:

Lately it's been Massive X. Traditionally Absynth is one that has worked well. Largo is another one.

Razor also.

This. If you have the full license for Reaktor, you have access to its community library, and that one is a rabbit hole full of INSANE stuff. You end up getting waaaaay more than you paid for.
