Featuring Original Music By Brian Tyler
(July 31, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Varèse Sarabande Records will release INTO THE STORM – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on August 5th and on CD August 19, 2014. The soundtrack features the original score composed by Brian Tyler (IRON MAN 3, FAST FIVE). INTO THE STORM opens in theaters on August 8, 2014.
“INTO THE STORM was an opportunity to do a completely conceptual score,” said Tyler. “The idea was that an approaching storm is represented by the premise of being stalked in the savanna by a lion or tiger – primal, but patient. African flutes whistle in the far distance over completely still strings holding like a lion stalking, waiting patiently to strike. Then without warning, the power of the storm is upon you before you are even aware. This was a really fun and rewarding concept for me to compose.”
Brian Tyler is a composer and conductor of over 60 films and numerous television series. He is a frequent visitor to the Marvel universe on such films as IRON MAN 3, THOR: THE DARK WORLD, and is currently scoring AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Tyler also scored EAGLE EYE for producer Steven Spielberg, and the box office hits FAST FIVE and FAST & FURIOUS for director Justin Lin. He was nominated for a 2014 BAFTA Award and was inducted into the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2010.
Tyler began scoring features shortly after he received his master’s degree from Harvard University, as well as a bachelor’s degree from UCLA. He has received three EMMY Award nominations, ten BMI Music Awards, five ASCAP Music Awards, and has earned 12 Goldspirit Awards, including 2014 Composer of the Year. Tyler’s upcoming projects include TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, THE EXPENDABLES 3, FAST & FURIOUS 7, and AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. For television, he scores the series HAWAII FIVE-0, and SLEEPY HOLLOW, for which he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music this year.
From New Line Cinema, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, comes the tornado disaster film INTO THE STORM. Steven Quale (FINAL DESTINATION 5) directs the film, which is produced by Todd Garner (ZOOKEEPER, KNGHT AND DAY). In the span of just a few hours, the city of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of the most furious twisters they’ve ever seen. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run toward the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, INTO THE STORM throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
“The other side of the music for INTO THE STORM emphasizes human emotion including loneliness,” explained Tyler. “It features a melancholy tone that comes from realizing we all are fragile and at the mercy of powers outside of ourselves.”
New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Films presents INTO THE STORM, in theaters on August 8, 2014. INTO THE STORM – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from Varèse Sarabande Records will be available digitally on August 5th and on CD August 19, 2104.
