Watertower Music is extremely excited to announce the release of award-winning composer Christophe Beck’s “Shazam! Fury Of The Gods (Main Title Theme)”. The enthralling new theme is the first music to be made available from director David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!,” is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam.
Prolific Emmy® Award-winning and Grammy®-nominated composer Christophe Beck (The Hangover Trilogy, the Ant-Man films, Pitch Perfect) brought his considerable musical capabilities to Shazam! Fury of the Gods. This exciting “Shazam! Fury Of The Gods (Main Title Theme)” – the first release from the upcoming soundtrack, which is scheduled for release in full on March 10, offers fans a wonderful first look into the musical landscape he created.
Beck described his work on the film: “Being a fan of the first Shazam! I was thrilled when director David Sandberg invited me to work on Shazam! Fury of the Gods. There’s a beautiful innocence to these characters alongside their heroism, and a real feeling of family in their bond, and the opportunity to capture all that in the score really lit me up. I wrote a big, bold orchestral score,” the composer further elaborated, “in the grand tradition of classic superhero movies, with a brand new main theme that works as a theme for both Billy Batson and the team as a whole. I’m proud and excited to share this film and its music with the world!”
This insanely action-packed Super Hero sequel brings even more excitement, adventure and comedy, along with all-new realms, bigger threats, monsters and mythical creatures to our heroes. Now fully bestowed with the powers of the gods, Billy Batson and his fellow foster kids are still learning how to juggle teenage life with having adult Super Hero alter egos. But when the Daughters of Atlas, a vengeful trio of ancient gods, arrive on Earth in search of the magic stolen from them long ago, Billy—aka Shazam—and his family are thrust into a battle for their superpowers, their lives, and the fate of their world. But can a bunch of teenagers actually save the day? Does Billy even want to…?
New Line Cinema presents A Peter Safran Production of A David F. Sandberg Film, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which is set to open in theaters and IMAX internationally beginning 15 March 2023 and in North America on March 17, 2023.
