Film Score Friday 5/6/16

Intrada has announced two new CD releases for this week.

Director Michael Mann's 2004 hit COLLATERAL starred Tom Cruise (in a rare villain role) as a hit man who forces a a taxi driver (Jamie Foxx, earning a Supporting Actor nomination the same year he won Best Actor for Ray) to be his chauffuer for an all-night killing spree. The original score was composed by James Newton Howard, but in typical Michael Mann fashion, he took a mix-and-match approach to the music, using only a limited amount of Howard's contribution while tracking in cues from a variety of composers, including pieces from Mann's own earlier films like The Insider and Heat. The fllm's original soundtrack release on Hip-O featured only four relatively brief Howard cues (as well as two cues by Antonio Pinto), but the Intrada Collateral features nearly 53 minutes of Howard music.

Their other new release is a two-disc set presenting the score for director Otto Preminger's 1967 Georgia-set melodrama HURRY SUNDOWN, with an eclectic cast including Michael Caine, Jane Fonda, John Phillip Law, Diahann Carroll, Robert Hooks, George Kennedy, Burgess Meredith and Faye Dunaway. The film's score was composed by Hugo Montenegro (The Undefeated, The Ambushers), and RCA released 33 minutes of his music on LP at the time of the film's release. The Intrada release presents the complete 74-minute score, including music not heard in the final film, as well as 27 minutes of alternates and extras plus the original LP sequencing.


La-La Land has announced their planned schedule of releases for the rest of May.

On May 17th, they will release a CD pairing two scores for sci-fi apocalypses -- 1965's CRACK IN THE WORLD, starring Dana Andrews and Janette Scott (the Day of the Triffids star immortalized in a Rocky Horror lyric), scored by Johnny Douglas (The Railway Children); and Brian Gascoigne's score to PHASE IV, the 1974 thriller about super-intelligent ants that marked the feature directing debut of master title sequence designer Saul Bass (Waxworks released the Phase IV score for the first time on vinyl last year, but this is its first CD release). That same day they will release the score to the game UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF'S END, composed by A-list feature composer Henry Jackman.

On May 31, they will release an expanded, two-disc edition of one of Thomas Newman's most beloved scores, for the modern classic THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (which earned the composer his first Oscar nomination, competing against himself for his wonderful Little Women).


Varese Sarbande plans to announce their latest set of limited edition CD Club releases next Monday.

Aisle Seat 5-3: May Day Edition

Aaah, the summer of ’86. I still have Fox’s ad touting their slate of big sci-fi/fantasy films that were all released within a period of three short months: “Aliens,” “Big Trouble in Little China,” “Spacecamp,” “The Fly,” and THE MANHATTAN PROJECT (***, 117 mins., 1986, PG-13). Director Marshall Brickman’s entertaining “WarGames” clone manages to promote a no-nukes message at the same time that it wants us to sympathize with its brilliant yet misguided teen protagonist who builds an atomic bomb with materials stolen from quasi-befuddled scientist John Lithgow’s secret Ithaca, N.Y. lab.
