PARAMOUNT RECORDS PRESENTS TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS - MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK FROM THE PARAMOUNT PICTURES AND NICKELODEON MOVIES FILM
Features Original Score By Steve Jablonsky
(Los Angeles, CA) – Paramount Records announced today that it will release the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS – Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on June 3rd, 2016, featuring the film’s original score by Steve Jablonsky (the “Transformers” franchise, “Pain and Gain”). The Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies film is being released in theatres nationwide on June 3rd, 2016.
“The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise has some of the most unique and fun characters ever created, which makes it a great canvas for music. I enjoyed the challenge of creating new musical themes for these characters,” said Jablonsky. “One of my main goals was to have fun with the music, because that's what the Turtles are all about; they could be fighting the craziest battle ever and still be cracking jokes. But the film also has a heart and a message, about being true to who you are. Out of the Shadows is a great combination of fun, action and heart.”
Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo return to theaters this summer in “TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS” to battle bigger, badder villains alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After super villain Shredder (Brian Tee) escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar “Sheamus”), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
