Alexandre Desplat Godzilla: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (2014) on Limited Edition 180g 2LP
In the Summer of 2014, the world's most revered monster was reborn when the epic action adventure film Godzilla was released, starring Aaron-Taylor Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. From visionary director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless.
Film composer Alexandre Desplat was enlisted to score the original motion picture soundtrack for Godzilla. Desplat had not composed previously for a monster film, having worked on movies such as The King's Speech, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and the final two Harry Potter films. Desplat accepted the contract after being impressed with Edwards' Monsters. Desplat describes the original motion picture soundtrack for Godzilla as "non-stop fortissimo, with lots of brass, Japanese drums, and electric violin."
