It’s time to lock ‘n’ load your music and cue up the Free Fire Soundtrack, score by Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury. The duo looked to folks who did iconic 1970s scores such as “David Shire, who did The Taking of Pelham 123, or Lalo Schifrin.” The soundtrack is out now on Lakeshore and Invada Records worldwide. Experience the score in eight-track format vicariously through this very ’70s teaser, below. Preview the entire album at the jump.
[Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury] manage to keep the disparate styles of their songs in tune with the film’s frenzied energy… You won’t believe it until you hear it anyway. Promise me that you will, ‘cause it’s insane in all the best ways. Just like Wheatley’s film. – Patrick Phillips, Cut.Print.Film
A24 presents FREE FIRE in US theaters nationwide on April 21, 2017.
Helmed by Ben Wheatley, Free Fire is a New York Times Critics’ Pick! In this follow up to his stylish dystopian film, High-Rise, Wheatley’s “more is more” shootout drama features the must-see ensemble cast of Academy Award® Winner Brie Larson (last year’s Room), Cillian Murphy (Anthropoid), Jack Reynor (Glassland), Armie Hammer (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) and Sharlto Copley (Elysium).
“Free Fire” is a savagely funny and viciously precise distillation of one of the pair’s favorite themes: Men are idiots. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
Free Fire is the best time in a theater I’ve had all year. Don’t miss this one. – Alex Welch, IGN
Easily one of the most exciting filmmakers working today – David Fear, Rolling Stone
