La-La Land Records: BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM - Robert J. Kral


La-La Land Records will release the soundtrack for BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM composed by Robert J. Kral (SUPERMAN: DOOMSDAY, DUCK DODGERS) on CD August 26, 2014.  This limited edition CD (1500 units) will contain 4 exclusive tracks not available elsewhere.

“BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM marks a departure from what we normally do from a music standpoint,” said director Jay Olivia. “We usually do the operatic epic music that we've all become accustomed to in the live action and animated comic book films for the last twenty five years…. James Tucker, my producer, was very supportive of the idea of doing a more contemporary take on the superhero music and when Rob sent us his first pass of the score, we were tremendously pleased.”
 

BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM is a direct-to-video animated superhero that is part of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies. The film is based on the universe of the BATMAN: ARKHAM video game franchise, and is a direct sequel to BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS. Jay Oliva and Ethan Spaulding direct, with a script by Heath Corson and James Tucker producing. The film was screened at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con International on July 25, 2014, and was released digitally on July 29 and on physical media on August 12.

In the universe of BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM, the government teams up a group of super-villains with the code name Suicide Squad and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to bring back top secret information the Riddler has stolen, and Batman soon becomes involved.  Things go from bad to worse when one of the Squad (Harley Quinn) frees the Joker, who has the means to not only blow up the asylum, but most of Gotham City as well.

DC Animation presents BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM is currently available digitally and will be available on physical media on August 12.  The BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally and on CD from www.lalalandrecords.com on August 26, 2014.

Anything Batman, sign me up... this is another aspect on the Batman franchise, this time it's taking us to  Arkham... the score does not disappoint.

It's funny that Batman is always associated with large operatic pieces so this is an interesting departure.
