Le titre-phare du film sera bientôt disponible.

La bande-son d’HUNGER GAMES avait été chapotée par le grand T-Bone Burnett et comportait des chansons d’Arcade Fire ou encore de Kid Cudi. Si on ignore encore la nature des titres qui composeront la BO de L’EMBRASEMENT, un communiqué de presse a annoncé que le titre-phare du film serait signé Coldplay. Et s’intitulerait « Atlas ». Il sera disponible en téléchargement le 26 août prochain.

« J’ai un grand respect et une grande admiration pour Coldplay, et on est très excités de voir à quel point ils se sont connectés aux thèmes et aux idées développées dans le film », a expliqué le réalisateur de L’EMBRASEMENT, Francis Lawrence. Pour les anglophones, le communiqué de presse est disponible dans sa version originale en fin de post.

En attendant la sortie du film le 27 novembre prochain, un nouveau trailer de HUNGER GAMES : L’EMBRASEMENT a été mis en ligne hier. Il est très similaire à la dernière bande-annonce, publiée récemment. Mais le voici tout de même.

NEW YORK, NY and SANTA MONICA, CA August 9, 2013 – Multiplatinum recording artist Coldplay will release the first track from the official soundtrack album for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, it was announced today by Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) and Republic Records, marking the first time Coldplay has ever recorded an original song for a motion picture. The song, titled “Atlas,” is scheduled to be available via iTunes and all digital retailers on August 26, 2013.  Republic Records is again teaming up with Lionsgate to release the soundtrack in advance of Lionsgate distributing the film on screens worldwide on November 22, 2013.

“I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film,” said filmmaker Francis Lawrence. “Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can’t wait to share this music with audiences around the world.”

“We are so honored that Coldplay, one of the iconic rock bands of our generation, will perform the first song out on the new soundtrack,” said Tracy McKnight, Lionsgate’s Head of Film Music. “Knowing that Chris Martin is a fan of the books makes this even more meaningful.  The Coldplay single underscores the stature of recording artists we’ve assembled for this powerful soundtrack.”

The first installment of The Hunger Games was the 13th highest-grossing North American release of all time on its way to grossing nearly $700 million at the worldwide box office.

This is the first in a series of highly anticipated announcements of the new artists to be revealed in the coming weeks.

The first Hunger Games partnership between Republic Records and Lionsgate yielded the Grammy Award-winning, chart-dominating The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond executive produced by T Bone Burnett.
