Varese Sarabande: Captain Phillips [2013] - Henry Jackman

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS [2013]
Music by: Henry Jackman

Released By: VARESE SARABANDE

Captain Phillips is director Paul Greengrass's multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is — through Greengrass’s distinctive lens — simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks), and his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi). Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control. The film is directed by Academy Award® nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray based upon the book, A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, and Michael De Luca.

For one of his biggest scores to date, composer Henry Jackman takes his music to the high seas for this epic adventure.

Columbia Pictures will open CAPTAIN PHILLIPS nationwide on October 11.

This is a top notch score from Jackman, his talent seems to grow from score to score... not that his other works are not good, this is open sea epic!
