    Challengers (2024)

    Apparently TR & AR are also composing the score for Luca Guadagnino's NEXT film, Challengers.

    Mod note: Sexy tennis comedy, starring Zendaya, Mike Faist, and Josh O’Connor. Already in post-production and due for release on August 11, 2023 (update: delayed to 2024 due to actor's strike)

    Died. Said 'fist fuck' and won a Grammy. Scored a sexy tennis comedy and won an Oscar.

    Why is "sexy tennis comedy" harder to wrap my brain around than "Pixar film starring Jamie Foxx"?

    They should bring Ilan on board for this one (he's a total tennis nerd).
    Also I can't get out of my head that Wimbledon movie after reading the synopsis.

    The score for this film is going to be like House music according to this quote. Odd one!

    Watchmen felt to me like, "what if Driver Down were the basis for an entire soundtrack?" I'd LOVE to hear an TR/AR score that sounds like In Motion was the basis.

    Well Zendaya will be burning the house down, so makes sense.

    In all seriousness though I'm so excited about Trent & Atticus working with Luca for one (Luca worked with Thom Yorke on Suspiria), then scoring a film with Zendaya in it, and then just overall another TR&AR score overall. So this and The Killer alone have me excited for 2023.

    Probably gonna be another farse from Guadagnino like his previous two films but just like those two I'm watching solely for the score.

    So, do we think that the music in the trailer is Trent and Atticus with Zendaya singing over it, similar to the way the Halsey album turned out?

    I thought LG said it was going to be "house music"? So...maybe?

    Hoping this one will get some Oscar love, the Bones one and Empire of Light seemed to flop a bit, need another run like Watchmen, Mank and Soul

    Challengers is getting delayed to spring next year, due to the writers and actors' strike: https://deadline.com/2023/07/zendaya...te-1235444723/

    Oomf. Sounds like the strike actually provided cover for a production that was way behind schedule, given the earlier August 11 release date.

    So...just to recap...this is a spots comedic drama set in the 90s with TR/AR doing a house/drum n bass score?

    I expect we'll still be trying to figure out what this movie is years after it comes out.

    Is this possibly a taste of the score?

    No hits on Soundhound but that definitely sounds like TR/AR.

    That's a safe assumption I'd say, what a slapper!

    Lots of positive mentions of the 'pulsing' score, could we be back in TSN territory?

    Not sure why, but if you go to Instagram and add a story, then go to add "Music" ...type in Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross... you will see all of the tracks from the Challengers score and you can use (or just listen) to 30 second samples of 4 of the tracks.

    Went to Apple Music and iTunes store to check (since this is where Instagram pulls the "Music" for stories from) but nothing there. Strange that you can get listen to samples on Instagram but nowhere else. Mistake?
