ASHBY – [Listen/Download]
Featuring music by The Brevet, Christopher Blue, The Daylights, Gary Trexler, Pilgrim, Nathan Fox, The Bones of J.R. Jones, Hey Geronimo, Fat City, Too Far Moon, and Nat & Alex Wolff.

A “coming-of-age, facing-your-death movie,” per writer-director Tony McNamaraAshby pairs a teen ready to come out of his shell (Nat Wolff) with a retired CIA killer (Mickey Rourke) who has hidden his conscience under a rock. Add an ador-a-nerd (Emma Roberts) whose dad keeps an MRI in the garage, and you have the makings of a winning film about reconciling one’s self-image with reality. –The Hollywood Reporter

Paramount Pictures presents ASHBY, available now on Blu-ray/DVD and Digital (rent it on iTunes).

 

 

DRAFT DAY – [Listen/Download]
Score by John Debney.

The score is dramatic and fast paced, reflecting the personal and professional drama of a general manager under pressure to do the right thing in his personal life as well as for his team.   – Melissa Minners, G-pop.net

A great sports film – Chicago Sun-TImes

This Ivan Reitman film, Draft Day, charted to No. 1 on the iTunes Movies chart upon its Digital release.  Starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner, the film boasts many delightful cameos from football legends and celebrities.

GREATER – [Listen/Download]
Score by Stephen Endelman.

Brandon Burlsworth is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Brandon dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, but was told he wasn’t good enough to play Division I ball. Undeterred, Brandon took a risk and walked on in 1994. Written off by fellow teammates and coaches, Brandon displayed dogged determination in the face of staggering odds. The awkward kid who once was an embarrassment to his teammates and an annoyance to his coaches, ended up becoming the most respected player in the history of the program, changing the lives of all he touched.

Greater Productions presents GREATER, available now on Blu-ray/DVD (get it here) and Digital (rent it on iTunes).
