Three major electronic music artists are involved in scoring upcoming films. In June word broke that Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter has scored the music for “First Point,” a short film starring Lindsay Lohan as a surfer (see trailer below). Daft Punk’s previous film work includes scoring 2010’s Tron: Legacy. Likewise, Skrillex is contributing music to Harmony Korine’s upcoming film, Spring Breakers starring Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, due out in 2013. Skrillex confirmed the news on Twitter, posting, “it’s more or less traditional scoring…dont expect dance floor bangers!” Likewise, M83‘s Anthony Gonzalez (pictured) has been tapped to compose original music for Tom Cruise’s new thriller, Oblivion, out on April 26, 2013.
While we can’t attest for the quality of the screenplay and acting, one thing is certain: the music on these films will most certainly be worth the price of a ticket.
