TYLER BATES | The Day the Earth Stood still [CD]

Tyler Bates, the American composer behind 300, Doomsday, Rob Zombie's Halloween, Dawn of the Dead and Slither after having created much controversy over the direct lift-offs from Elliot Goldenthal's Titus, used in his 300 score - a story which went the route of justice, returns with his most recent major assignment, The Day the Earth Stood Still.

The 2008 science fiction film, a remake of the 1951 film of the same name is directed by Scott Derrickson and stars Keanu Reeves, dealing with Cold War themes like nuclear warfare updated to more contemporary ones, such as "humans vs. nature" and humanity's generally violent nature towards itself.

Tyler Bates is responsible for the score which has a Release Date of 12/16/08 and for which you can view the artwork, info and tracklisting over at the releasing Label's website. Click HERE for the score CD release page by Varese Sarabande.
