The Spiderwick Chronicles Motion Picture Score
LAKESHORE RECORDS RELEASES THE SOUNDTRACK FOR
THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES
ACADEMY AWARDT WINNER JAMES HORNER COMPOSED ORIGINAL MUSIC FOR THE FILM, BASED ON THE BELOVED CHILDREN’S STORIES.
(January 28, 2008- Los Angeles, CA) - Lakeshore Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack for THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES on February 5, 2008. The album features original music by Academy AwardT-winning composer James Horner (TITANIC, A BEAUTIFUL MIND).
Two-time Academy AwardT-winner James Horner began writing music for film in 1980, after completing his doctorate in composition at UCLA. Following work scoring a short film for the AFI, Horner began honing his craft at New World Pictures where he developed relationships with young directors including Ron Howard and James Cameron, for whom Horner has composed some of his most popular scores like APOLLO 13, COCOON, and RANSOM (for Howard) and TITANIC and ALIENS (for Cameron).
Horner has developed into one of the most respected film composers of his generation, composing for such films as LEGENDS OF THE FALL, RANSOM, COURAGE UNDER FIRE, CASPER, PATRIOT GAMES, STAR TRAK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN, THE LAND BEFORE TIME, and WILLOW. In addition to his two wins for TITANIC, he has earned Academy AwardT nominations for his scores for APOLLO 13, BRAVEHEART, FIELD OF DREAMS, HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG, and ALIENS, and for the song “Somewhere Out There” from AN AMERICAN TALE.
From the beloved best-selling series of books comes THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES, a fantasy adventure for the child in all of us. Peculiar things start to happen the moment the Grace family (Jared, his twin brother Simon, sister Mallory and their mom) leave New York and move into the secluded old house owned by their great, great uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Unable to explain the strange disappearances and accidents that seem to be happening on a daily basis, the family blames Jared. When he, Simon and Mallory investigate what’s really going on, they uncover the fantastic truth of the Spiderwick estate and of the creatures that inhabit it. The film stars Freddie Highmore, Mary-Louise Parker, Nick Nolte, Joan Plowright and David Strathairn.
