HAROLD & KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY
(May 12, 2008- Los Angeles, CA) Lakeshore Records will release the original score for Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay on May 6th via iTunes and in stores on May 13th. The score album contains original music composed by George S. Clinton.
George S. Clinton began his career in Nashville as a songwriter, arranger and session player. He became a staff writer for Warner Bros. Music, writing songs recorded by a wide range of artists including Michael Jackson, Joe Cocker, and Smokey Robinson as well as continuing his session work. He also recorded four albums as an artist. His George Clinton Band attracted the attention of a producer who hired him to score his first film, Cheech and Chongs Still Smoking.
Clinton honed his skills scoring "ninja" movies for Cannon Films, and TV movies and miniseries. The soulful, erotic jazz for Zalman King's Showtime anthology Red Shoe Diaries developed quite a following. His musical inventiveness and versatility in have allowed him to contribute scores to such diverse films as Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and its blockbuster sequels, and the hit martial arts fantasy Mortal Kombat and its sequel. His credits include John Waters' A Dirty Shame, 3000 Miles to Graceland, The Astronaut's Wife, Wild Things, Big Mommas House 2, The Cleaner, The Santa Clause 2: The Mrs. Clause and The Santa Clause 3.
Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay marks the triumphant return of these two hilarious, slacker anti-heroes. The movie stars John Cho (American Pie I & II, American Dreamz) as Harold and Kal Penn (Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj, Epic Movie) as Kumar, two stoners who cant seem to get a break. Their last adventure found them traveling across country to find a White Castle hamburger in order to satisfy a weed-induced case of the munchies.
This time, the boys get themselves in trouble trying to sneak a bong on board a flight to Amsterdam. Now, being suspected of terrorism, they are forced to run from the law and try to find a way to prove their innocence. What follows is an irreverent and epic journey of deep thoughts, deeper inhaling and a wild trip around the world that is as un-PC as it gets.
New Line Cinema presents Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, currently in theaters. Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay original score on Lakeshore Records will be available on iTunes on May 6th and in stores on May 13, 2008. Also available from Lakeshore Records is the Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay original soundtrack.
