In what’s been a great day for Marvel fans, Marvel is just dropping off little nuggets of awesome to get us through our Wednesday. First the trailer and poster for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, and then we also get a taste of the soundtrack to Doctor Strange which is coming out in a few weeks, and the soundtrack drops on Friday, and after listening to this track, I’m as excited for the soundtrack as I am the movie. Give it a listen yourself.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the music to this movie by Michael Giacchino (Lost, The Incredibles) but getting a 60’s inspired Moody Blues-esque, trippy score was certainly not what I would have guessed. But it totally works, especially for the tone of the movie, which really (from what I’ve seen) gets into the really out there Steve Ditko esque stuff that the comics were known for, maybe even a bit of the really bizarre Steve Engleheart run from the 70’s as well, but music you could get stoned to and kind of zone out, (if that’s your thing, man)
In any case, we’re in for a good musical time when the soundtrack is released this Friday, and then for a great cinematic experience in three weeks when Doctor Strange hits theaters.
