One may not have anything to do with the other in your world, but you know what? Does it really matter? The Amazing Spiderman 2 comes out on May 2nd and besides being excited about the actual movie, I’m excited because it features some pretty stellar music including “It’s On Again” by Alicia Keys (featuring Kendrick Lamar). You can listen to the song, written by Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, Hans Zimmer and Kendrick Lamar, at the bottom of the post.
The original soundtrack was already released internationally on April 14th, and is set to release in Canada and in the US on Tuesday, April 22nd. Featuring scores composed by Hans Zimmer & The Magnificent Six, and Pharrell Williams Johnny Marr, the soundtrack is one you would be proud to have in your collection. The film’s director Marc Webb even calls it, “…completely unlike any movie score that’s come before.”
Don’t know much about The Amazing Spiderman 2? Let me quote the synopsis for you:
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. Directed by Marc Webb. Produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. Screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner. Screen Story by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. Based on the Marvel comic book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
