To celebrate the release of the highly anticipated new James Bond film Skyfall, we are giving 5 lucky readers the chance to win a copy of the soundtrack, composed by Thomas Newman and don't forget you can see Bond back in action when Skyfall arrives in cinemas on October 27 2012.
Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. The film is from Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Directed by Sam Mendes. Produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan.
The upcoming motion picture score soundtrack of Skyfall will be released on Sony Classical October 29th. The soundtrack consists of original music written by leading film composer Thomas Newman, who has collaborated on all but one of director Sam Mendes' films. Newman has scored more than fifty feature films and has been nominated for ten Academy Awards®, has won a BAFTA, two Grammys and an Emmy, and has also been nominated for a Golden Globe.
His uniquely expressive musical style fits perfectly with the humour and slickness of a Bond movie. His expressive range goes from thunderous and dramatic for the many action sequences to broodingly atmospheric for scenes in which the dark side of the story is at the forefront. With its big orchestral effects, this music is equal to the spectacular events that the movie portrays.
