“Score by James Newton Howard that recalls the hypnotic melodies he composed for Michael Mann’s Collateral – another City of Angels noir set during the wee hours of the night, and for which this film feels like a distant, crazy cousin: one whose weapon of choice is the camera itself.”
Lakeshore Records is very pleased to release the soundtrack to Nightcrawler, featuring a score by critically-acclaimed Composer James Newton Howard (Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Michael Clayton, Maleficent). James Newton Howard has scored over 100 of the most memorable films in recent history, including eight films in which he received an Academy Award nomination: Defiance (2009), Michael Clayton (2008), The Village (2005), My Best Friend’s Wedding (1998), One Fine Day (1997), Junior (1995), The Fugitive (1994) and The Prince of Tides (1992). Watch Nightcrawler in theaters on October 31 (check showtimes).
