Superhero In Absentia SAMARITAN Soundtrack Released – Scored by Jed Kurzel and Kevin Kiner
Lakeshore Records has digitally released the Amazon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to SAMARITAN, featuring music by Jed Kurzel and Kevin Kiner. The pulsating score merges menacing electronics with dark orchestration to provide an ominous backdrop to the vigilante-themed thriller. Samaritan is an MGM film directed by Julius Avery with a screenplay by Bragi F. Schut and starring Sylvester Stallone. The film has premiered exclusively on Prime Video globally starting August 26. The fantasy action/drama follows 13-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton) who suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith (Sylvester Stallone) is actually a legend hiding in plain sight. Twenty-five years ago, Granite City’s super-powered vigilante, Samaritan, was reported dead after a fiery warehouse battle with his rival, Nemesis. Most believe Samaritan perished in the fire, but some in the city, like Sam, have hope that he is still alive. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbor out of hiding to save the city from ruin.
Says Kiner: “I’ve always loved collaborating with other composers and my experience with Jed Kurzel has been one of my favorite associations thus far. I believe you will find an extremely unique unorthodox sound as you listen to the Samaritan soundtrack. This is a goal I always set out to achieve when I am composing, but pulling off a truly fresh vibe and palette is easier said than done. I hope you have as much fun listening as we did working on this rollicking ride!” The soundtrack is available from these links.
