7 August: The soundtrack for Kiefer’s upcoming movie, Mirrors, hits stores August 12th with music composed by Javier Navarrete.
(August 5, 2008- Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for MIRRORS, available via iTunes and in stores on August 12. The soundtrack contains original music composed by Javier Navarrete (Pan’s Labyrinth).
Spanish composer Javier Navarrete earned his first Academy Award® nomination for Pan’s Labyrinth, his second collaboration with director Guillermo del Toro. Navarrete began scoring in 1987 and has composed some 30 film scores since making his debut. His credits include 2003’s Dot the I, a romantic drama, and 2004’s Yo Puta.
Though not well known in the United States, Navarrete has been likened to French composer Alexandre Desplat – both well regarded in their home countries and both achieving commercial success in the United States with their debut scores. His upcoming projects include Fireflies in the Garden (starring Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds) and Inkheart (starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren, and Paul Bettany).
The film Haute Tension put French writer/director Alexandre Aja on the horror movie map. It was edited and released in the US as High Tension. That film led to Wes Craven approaching Aja about remaking the film The Hills Have Eyes. The result was a highly successful film in the genre.
Initially Aja was approached to remake the 2003 South Korean horror film Into the Mirror. Rather than simply remake the film, Aja and co-writer Gregory Levasseur were inspired to write a new story. A security guard (Kiefer Sutherland) discovers an evil spirit lurking in the mirrors of an abandoned department store. His soon-to-be ex-wife (Paula Patton), a coroner, has a hard time believing her husband’s claims. MIRRORS also stars Amy Smart, Jason Flemyng, and Julian Glover.
20th Century Fox and New Regency present MIRRORS in theaters on August 15, 2008. MIRRORS original soundtrack on Lakeshore Records is available here.
