Cool Sh*t!!- First Listen Daft Punk in Tron Legacy
Disney has released a teaser of one of the Tron Legacy tracks by the French electonic duo Daft Punk. The name of the track is "The Game Has Changed" and you may recognize it from the trailers. Have a listen! It's pretty much the most epic thing ever and it really does wonders in harmonizing and setting the tone of this new Tron movie.
Seems like we're seeing more and more of this type of mainstream, electronic music being incorporate with movie soundtracks. Don't get me wrong, I think that it's great! I absolutely loved what Trent Reznor did for The Social Network. I feel like the score for The Social Network was one of the films biggest draws. They were smart to release the first five tracks to the soundtrack for free to the public prior to the release of the film so audiences could get a feel for the film's tone. Also jumping on the bandwagon is Joe Wright's upcoming teenage assassin flick Hanna. Electronic duo The Chemical Brothers will be helming the score for the film in order to give the movie a more "modern beat." I think it will be great for the film and I LOVE Joe Wright! Here is the synopsis for Hanna if anyone is interested:
"Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a solider; these come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Sweden. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity."
