“Transformers: Age of Extinction” is already becoming one of the most anticipated films of 2014, but the film is gaining even more traction thanks to them getting the help of one of music’s biggest (and relatively new) musical acts.
Director Michael Bay, film composer Steve Jablonsky and Paramount Pictures is working with Grammy Award-winning band Imagine Dragons to feature the band’s original music in the film. Imagine Dragons has written an original song for the film called “Battle Cry,” which will be heard in critical parts of the film. Also, Imagine Dragons has also recorded cues with Jablonsky during the scoring process. Legendary film composer Hans Zimmer was also on hand to help with scoring the film.
“We’re incredibly lucky that Dan, Wayne, Ben and Daniel were available to work with us,” said Bay. “I remember being drawn to the emotion of ’Demons’ and ’Radioactive’ the first time I heard those songs, and I knew I wanted that same energy and heart for this movie. They’ve created a really epic, otherworldly sound for ‘Battle Cry.’”
“The ‘Transformer’ franchise has set the bar for cinematic innovation over the years,” said Alex Da Kid, label head at KIDinaKORNER records. “We are excited to collaborate with Michael Bay and Paramount Pictures and view this as an incredible global platform.”#TransformersPremiere.
