Milan Records: "ANGEL HAS FALLEN" music by David Buckley


Milan Records, an imprint of Sony Music Masterworks, announces ANGEL HAS FALLEN (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) with music by television, film and game composer DAVID BUCKLEY (The Good Wife, Jason Bourne, The Nice Guys).  Available Friday, August 23, the soundtrack features music from the Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman-starring action thriller, which makes its theatrical debut Friday, August 23 from Lionsgate.

Of the soundtrack, composer DAVID BUCKLEY says, “When Ric (Director) and I first discussed the direction for this score, he was keen for the music to remain in a dark space as our hero becomes a fugitive. There is some light and shade as the drama enfolds, but for a lot of the film my job was to portray a man not only on the run, but one who is fast approaching mental and physical breaking point. But there is a theme that represents light and hope, for Mike Banning’s wife, for his child, for the President and for his country.”

ABOUT DAVID BUCKLEY: Emmy nominated composer David Buckley has just finished scoring Angel Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman for Lionsgate, and is currently working with the film’s director Ric Roman Waugh and star Gerard Butler on a new disaster thriller entitled Greenland.  Buckley is also scoring an upcoming animated feature Arctic Justice.  Other recent credits include the remake of Papillon starring Charlie Hunnam & Rami Malek, Jason Bourne directed by Paul Greengrass and The Nice Guys for Shane Black and Joel Silver.
