Back Lot Music will release The Boxtrolls – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD September 23, 2014. The album features an original score for the Focus Features and LAIKA family event movie by Academy Award®-winning composer Dario Marianelli (Atonement) and an original song by Eric Idle (of Monty Python fame), plus classic songs performed by the group Loch Lomond.
The Boxtrolls is the first animated feature that Oscar® winner Dario Marianelli has scored, and he began his work notably early in the production process. “That was a huge benefit for us,” said The Boxtrolls co-director Graham Annable. “Dario started work when most of the movie was still in the storyboard phase, and he was able to ask for a few more seconds here and there to let his score breathe – and truly support key moments in the movie. Later, he would also adapt the waltz that he wrote to fit finished shots.”
I also received this CD as I have seen a preview of this movie and consider it to be art! It is by the same studio that gave us Coraline and ParaNorman, two movies that my family loved, and this one looks to be even better than those! We cannot wait to see this when it opens this Friday, September 26! The music marries terrifically to the movie, and there is a waltz in this! I was blown away by the 20 minute preview I saw two months ago!
