HBO‘s Watchmen has been amazing in not just the story and acting but the soundtrack as well.
Composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have brought their unmistakable sound to the television show creating a haunting melody to go with the mystery. The two are award-winning composers who have created music for well over a hundred television and film productions and the two won an Oscar for their score to The Social Network.
You can now listen to the first volume of music on Spotify.
The weekend is almost here and we can’t wait to use it to catch up on so many things we need to do. While you wait for the work day to end and weekend begin, here’s some comic news and reviews from around the web in our morning roundup.
FOX International Studios today announced that Atticus Ross, Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning composer, producer and electronic musician is on board to score Robert Kirkman’s upcoming exorcism drama, Outcast, produced for Cinemax by FOX International Studios. This marks Ross’ television series score debut.
Ross’ acclaimed film work includes the score for David Fincher’s The Social Network, which earned him the Oscar and the Golden Globe, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl with long-time collaborator Trent Reznor. He also composed the music for Hughes Brothers’ The Book of Eli, Bill Pohlad’s Love & Mercy and Michael Mann’s Blackhat among others. Ross first garnered attention in the mid-1990’s as a programmer for Tim Simeon’s Bomb the Bass, and later for co-producing and programming five Nine Inch Nails albums with Reznor: With Teeth, Year Zero, The Slip, the instrumental Ghosts I-IV and Hesitation Marks.
San Diego Comic Con goers will get a first look at Outcast on Saturday, July 11, in Room 6DE at 3:00 p.m. Panelists include: creators and executive producers Robert Kirkman and Chris Black, cast members Patrick Fugit, Philip Glenister, and Wrenn Schmidt.
