Open Road Films presents THE PROMISE in theatres on April 21, 2017 (get tickets).
Academy Award®-nominated film, Nightcrawler, stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed. The album features score by eight-time Academy Award®-nominated composer James Newton Howard! Why Nightcrawler should be added to your vinyl collection: the score plays a very prominent role in the film, informing on the perspective of the deliciously dark protagonist, “Lou Bloom” (Gyllenhaal), the sociopathic cameraman.
But the goal was to use music see the scene from Lou’s eyes — that is, as a moment of great possibility for his career. “It really becomes an anthem of potential for his tremendous success,” Mr. Howard said. A more triumphant feel was in order.
“I think people could take that as an intentional miscue, but it really isn’t,” he said. “It was designed to orient people into understanding where he’s coming from as a character. And I think it’s key to the success of the score in the movie. – New York Times/Carpetbagger Blog

One of the highlights of the film, as agreed upon by critics and fans alike, is the music by composer James Newton Howard (The Sixth Sense, The Dark Knight, Signs). And while the film has had a digital and CD release, Invada has arrived to bring the soundtrack to vinyl with two different yet equally amazing packages. – Bloody Disgusting
James Newton Howard‘s score for Nightcrawler played a very important role in the film as director Dan Gilroy’s approach “was to use the score as a way to get inside the head of Lou Bloom (Mr. Gyllenhaal). That meant music that sometimes seemed discordant with the action on screen.”(New York Times) Get the full details on the vinyl release from Invada Records at Bloody Disgusting.
