Returning to the action and spectacle that have captured moviegoers around the world, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure with the Autobots and introduce a whole new faction of Transformers – the Maximals – to join them as allies in the existing battle for earth.
Available everywhere now, the album features music written by Bontemps for the seventh live-action installment in the blockbuster film franchise. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is the latest collaboration between director Steven Caple Jr. and Jongnic Bontemps, the duo having previously worked together on Caple Jr.’s directorial debut The Land and 2018’s hit film Creed II. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts arrives from Paramount Pictures.
Of the soundtrack, composer Jongnic Bontemps says, “I wish I could tell my pre-adolescent self that one day the toys that you’re having endless hours of fun with, will one day be a movie series, and that you’ll write the music for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. That might have kept me out of a lot of trouble… Scoring the movie and working with my longtime collaborator Steven Caple Jr. has exceeded my wildest dreams and I’m deeply honored to be a part of the Transformers legacy. We worked tirelessly to honor the musical language of the previous films, and reimagine it through the lens of our current world”.
“We are excited to bring a new sound to Transformers: Rise of The Beasts,” adds director Steven Caple Jr. “To the fans, our music will feel fresh, nostalgic of the 1990s, and it will achieve a reimagining of the musical composition these films are known for. With Jongnic Bontemps as this franchise’s first Black composer, we are proud and excited for audiences to connect with the film and culture through our music.” Paramount Pictures’ President of Music Randy Spendlove echoes this sentiment, adding, “We are proud and excited to welcome Jongnic Bontemps to the Transformers universe. His music is epic, emotional, and inspired and will be an amazing addition to the legendary franchise.”
Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, the film is now playing exclusively in theaters.
