This week, Lakeshore Records selects The Spiderwick Chronicles (watch it on iTunes), a film directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls, Freaky Friday). The film is scored by Academy Award-winning Composer James Horner (Chumscrubber). If Horner’s name sounds familiar to you, your hunch is correct: he is known for his film score work on films like Avatar, Titanic, Braveheart, and many more. Horner garnered the ASCAP Award for his score work on Spiderwick. The Spiderwick Chronicles (Original Motion Picture Score) features Horner’s sweeping orchestrals to match the film’s high adventures and battle scenes with fantastical creatures.
When the Grace family move into the Spiderwick estate, the children discover a fairy tale world waiting for them. The film stars Freddie Highmore (A&E’s Bates Motel), Sarah Bolger (The Tudors), Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder, Peaceful Warrior), Mary-Louise Parker (Howl) and Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express).
