TOP MUSICAL ARTISTS FROM SIX INTERNATIONAL COUNTRIES RECEIVE ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME CHANCE TO CONTRIBUTE TO “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS”
FROM PARAMOUNT PICTURES THE U.K.’S GARY LIGHTBODY OF SNOW PATROL AND BO BRUCE CREATE AN ORIGINAL SONG FOR THE FILM
LONDON (May 15th, 2013) – Gary Lightbody of the BRIT Award-nominated band Snow Patrol and singer-songwriter and The Voice UK finalist Bo Bruce have recorded an original song for J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS,” which opened in theatres May 9th. The duo is among a select group of artists from six countries who received a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have their work featured in the upcoming film from Paramount Pictures.
For the first time ever in a Paramount live-action film, lyricists, vocalists and music producers from around the world were invited to add their creative talents and a local flavour to a track written for a major motion picture, which will be featured in the film during its theatrical run in each of the artists’ respective countries.
So, moviegoers in the countries that participated will hear a unique and different soundtrack than the moviegoers in other countries. This opportunity, in which the artist’s own song will play during a pivotal scene with Star Trek’s iconic character Scotty, drew interest from the world’s hottest talent, including the U.K.’s Lightbody and Bruce—who will now hear their work in the soundtrack in every movie theatre in the U.K
Their song ‘THE RAGE THAT’S IN US ALL’, which features original lyrics by Lightbody and vocals by Bruce, will be heard on the “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” soundtrack, which also features Academy Award®-winning composer Michael Giacchino’s score, in every theatre in the U.K.
“STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” follows the crew of The Enterprise as they are called back home to Earth in the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
“STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” is written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof and directed by J.J. Abrams. Abrams is producing with Bryan Burk through Bad Robot Productions, along with Lindelof, Kurtzman and Orci. Jeffrey Chernov and Skydance Productions’ David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake are the executive producers.
