Soundtrack News: James Newton Howard's ALIVE Gets The Intrada Treatment

ALIVE
Music Composed and Produced by JAMES NEWTON HOWARD
INTRADA ISC 437


In 1993, Touchstone Pictures released the harrowing tale of Uruguayan rugby players and their families whose plane crashes in the Andes on their way to a match in Chile. It is a story of survival in some of the earth's harshest conditions, pushing humanity to endure the most devastating of circumstances. For Alive, composer James Newton Howard wrote a score that was to capture not only the desperate, seemingly hopeless conditions, but set the music against a background of natural beauty and tenacity of the human spirit.

At the time of the film's release, due to the constraints of the day, a 30-minute album of highlights was released, representing less than half of the score's full 73 minutes. Given the difficult subject matter, the film also under went changes in order to present the story in its most powerful light. As a result, several sequences were rescored, resulting in some 30 minutes of alternate…

THE TERRORS THAT AWAIT IN RAVENCROFT!

Last week, readers got their first taste of Frank Tieri’s RAVENCROFT in RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: CARNAGE, the first of three one-shots that pave the way for his new series. Sold out with a second printing coming next month, RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: CARNAGE told a deliciously dark tale that tied together Ravencroft’s chilling past with established Marvel lore. The twisted tour through RAVENCROFT’s most pivotal – and most frightening – chapters  continues in RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: SABRETOOTH and RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA. They’ll be no turning back as more sinister secrets come to light about the Marvel Universe’s darkest corner. But even with these many revelations, readers still won’t be prepared for the horrors that await when the doors of Ravencroft swing open on January 29th in RAVENCROFT #1!
