The Theme From New Line Cinema’s BLACK ADAM By Grammy Award-Winning Composer Lorne Balfe Available from WaterTower Music
WaterTower Music is pleased to announce today’s release of the first music to be heard from the upcoming New Line Cinema action adventure BLACK ADAM, starring Dwayne Johnson. The first-ever feature film to explore the story of the uncompromising DC antihero comes to the big screen under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra (JUNGLE CRUISE). The Black Adam Theme (from BLACK ADAM) by highly respected Grammy Award-winning and Emmy-nominated composer Lorne Balfe (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT, THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, BLACK WIDOW) has just been released – in advance of the film and soundtrack release. BLACK ADAM smashes into theaters and IMAX internationally beginning 19 October 2022, and in North America on October 21, 2022.
Balfe’s vision for the music of BLACK ADAM encompasses an exploration into the back stories that define the characters. The composer commented on that approach: “It was exciting to get into the Black Adam theme, and I really wanted to capture his essence as the DC comic book world’s anti-hero. We had a large brass section across the score to give the weight and power of the main character’s past, which I balanced out with high tempo, more melodic sounds to give the audience that more familiar heroic feel. We also experimented a lot with choir on this project, which was able to contribute a unique and classical sound that ties in nicely with Black Adam’s story.”
ABOUT THE FILM: In ancient Kahndaq, the slave Teth Adam was gifted the almighty powers of the gods. But he used those powers for vengeance and was imprisoned. Now, 5,000 years later, he is freed and once again wields his dark sense of justice onto the world. Refusing to surrender, Teth Adam is challenged by a team of modern day heroes known as the Justice Society – Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone – who seek to return him to eternal captivity. Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, Mo Amer, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate.
