Take a Listen to Some of Alan Silvestri's New 'Captain America' Score
Most know that I love great movie scores, even in action movies and summer blockbusters, so I try to listen to as many different soundtracks as possible. An early listen for one movie coming up, Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger, recently hit the web and is worth listening to if you haven't heard it yet. It's a 14-minute sample found by Ain't It Cool News including various pieces of the Captain America score by composer Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future, The Abyss, Predator, Forrest Gump, G.I. Joe). You can also hear the score on the official website, but this sample is just great to play in the background while working.
To listen, just fire up the YouTube below. I can't wait to hear the entire score, this sounds fantastic already!
After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers for a new top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero devoted to defending American ideals.
Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger is directed by Joe Johnston, who previously directed Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, Hidalgo and The Wolf Man. The screenplay was written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (writers of Life & Death of Peter Sellers, You Kill Me and all three Chronicles of Narnia movies, from Lion, Witch, Wardrobe to Dawn Treader) and also Joss Whedon. Paramount is bringing Captain America to theaters starting on July 22nd this summer.
