The RON’S GONE WRONG soundtrack album by Henry Jackman is available today from Hollywood Records
RON’S GONE WRONG, from 20th Century Studios and Locksmith Animation, opens in U.S. theaters nationwide on October 22. The film tells the story of Barney, a socially awkward middle-schooler, and Ron, his new walking, talking, digitally connected device, which is supposed to be his “Best Friend out of the Box.” Ron’s hilarious malfunctions set against the backdrop of the social media age launch them into an action-packed journey in which boy and robot come to terms with the wonderful messiness of true friendship.
The soundtrack features two end-title track songs: the feel-good single “Sunshine” by Liam Payne and the upbeat “New Friends” by Glass Animals frontman Dave Baley, as well as score by Henry Jackman.
Composer Jackman’s role in the filmmaking process was a very collaborative one. “I absolutely loved working with Henry,” says co-director/co-writer/executive producer Sarah Smith. “He so understood the ideas and the emotions of the movie, and when you talk to him about connections in the story, he instantly sees how to weave in themes and sounds to support that. I mean really instantly—he starts playing you new score on the spot!”
Smith continues, “He came in with great ideas for digital sounds he often uses, to support the B*Bot story, but I asked him for both a classic ‘high school movie’ vibe and the orchestral scale and emotion of ‘E.T.’ on top! Henry loves an unreasonable challenge, and he absolutely smashed it. Most important of all, as I watch scenes at the end of the film carried on a wave of his music, I just feel his heart and soul poured into the emotions of the story. It’s a wonderful score.”
Henry Jackman has established himself as one of today’s top composers by fusing his classical training with his experience as a successful record producer and creator of electronic music. Jackman is known for his scores for Marvel Studios’ THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER, Showtime’s THE COMEY RULE, and the Russo Brothers’ CHERRY. Other credits include JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL, POKEMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU, the Oscar®-nominated animated feature RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, KONG: SKULL ISLAND, JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK, BIG HERO 6 and KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE.
