Featuring Original Music by Academy Award® Winner Hans Zimmer
Sony Classical announces the release of the Inferno (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), available on October 14, 2016. The album features the film’s original score by Academy Award® winner Hans Zimmer (Interstellar, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). Columbia Pictures and Imagine Entertainment present Inferno in theaters October 28, 2016.
“If The Da Vinci Code was me at my most classical, Angels and Demons trying to reconcile the idea of science and religion, then Inferno is about disorientation. Ron Howard once said to us: ‘Make sure you don’t shut the laboratory doors too soon…’ I took him by his word and we ended up with reckless experimentation. This one’s more personal. This one’s darker. Even for me. This one might not be for the faint of heart,” Zimmer explained.
To date, Zimmer has scored more than 120 films, which have, combined, grossed over $24 billion at the worldwide box office. Zimmer has been honored with an Academy Award®, two Golden Globes®, three Grammys®, an American Music Award, and a Tony® Award. His most recent Academy Award nomination for Interstellar marks his 10th career Oscar nomination with the Academy. Some of Zimmer’s most notable works include his scores for Rain Main, Driving Miss Daisy, Thelma & Louise, Crimson Tide, The Thin Red Line, Gladiator, Mission: Impossible II, Hannibal, Pearl Harbor, Tears of the Sun, Spanglish, The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, and The Lion King, for which he won the Academy Award. Recent projects include Kung Fu Panda 3, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Little Prince.
Academy Award® winner Ron Howard returns to direct the latest bestseller in Dan Brown’s (TheDa Vinci Code) billion-dollar Robert Langdon series, Inferno, which finds the famous symbologist (again played by Tom Hanks) on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world’s population. The screenplay is by David Koepp, based upon the novel by Dan Brown, and the film is produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard.
