Leona Lewis Heads Up James Cameron's Avatar Soundtrack
The album – which features music composed and conducted by Academy Award-winner James Horner (Titanic) – will be released digitally and physically December 15th (internationally available December 14th) with pre-orders beginning at www.avatarscore.com on November 16th. Twentieth Century Fox releases Avatar in theatres everywhere on December 18th.
"Avatar: Music From The Motion Picture" will be highlighted by the film's end title song, "I See You (Theme From Avatar)" performed by multiple Grammy Award-nominated singer Leona Lewis, and produced by James Horner and Simon Franglen, the team behind Titanic's blockbuster theme song, "My Heart Will Go On." A companion video – directed by Jake Nava (Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Shakira) – is currently in production.
From writer-director James Cameron (Titanic, Aliens, The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, True Lies, The Abyss), Avatar takes us to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home. Cameron first conceived the film 15 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist. Now, after four years of production, AVATAR, a live action film with a new generation of special effects, delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.
Avatar stars Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation), Zoë Saldana (Star Trek), Michelle Rodriguez (Lost, Fast & Furious), and Sigourney Weaver (Aliens, Galaxy Quest). The film is produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau.
