Wanna Hear the ENTIRE "Superman Returns" Score?

by | June 20, 2006 | Comments

Now here’s a nifty piece of movie promotionalizing: Superhero Hype! is, with the complete permission of Warner Bros., hosting the entirety of John Ottman‘s "Superman Returns" score, which you can listen to any time you darn well feel like it. (P.S. Fans of John Williams will not be disappointed.)

We should thank Rhino Records, actually, for the score, so here’s their press release:

The thrilling and dramatic score from Superman Returns, the highly anticipated film featuring the Man of Steel’s latest heroic adventure, arrives in stores June 27, with nearly an hour of music from award-winning composer John Ottman (Fantastic Four, X2). The score album will be enhanced with an exclusive video interview with the film’s director, Bryan Singer (X2: X-Men United, X-Men, The Usual Suspects), a featurette on the making of the score and two trailers for the film.

Recorded with a 97-piece orchestra led by conductor Damon Intrabartolo, SUPERMAN RETURNS: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE features Ottman’s epic score including his unique twists on themes that John Williams composed for the original 1978 film, such as the classic main theme, "Superman March." Superman Returns stars newcomer Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth, Parker Posey and Kevin Spacey. Released by Warner Bros. Pictures, the film will open nationwide on June 28.

SUPERMAN RETURNS: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE (Rhino) will be available June 27 at all retail outlets and at www.rhino.com for a suggested retail price of $18.98.

The score album also includes liner notes penned by Ottman, who writes about his admiration for the 1978 original and its Williams score. "When Bryan (Singer) called informing me we were going to be making this film, I could actually feel my neck and shoulders tightening up. I mean, this is the Man of Steel. This is THE superhero. Why are we fooling with this!? Soon thereafter I swear I could see an apparition of John Williams, like Obi Wan Kenobi, waving his fingers, mouthing, ‘Don’t screw this up." It wasn’t as much the weight of also editing the picture, but foremost, the musical behemoth and responsibility ahead."

SUPERMAN RETURNS: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE follows the release of Sound Of Superman, a collection of rising stars paying musical tribute to the red-caped American icon, which will be released by Rhino on June 13.
