Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Are Scoring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem

This reveal implies that “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” shall be musically backed by an Oscar-winning group. Reznor and Ross’s rating for David Fincher’s “The Social Network” received them an Academy Award, and so they’ve put collectively the soundtracks for each one in every of Fincher’s movies since, together with “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “Gone Girl,” and upcoming Netflix neo-noir “The Killer.”

Before you begin pondering {that a} kid-friendly film is out of their wheelhouse, Reznor and Ross beforehand crafted the Golden Globe-winning soundtrack for Pixar’s “Soul.” Their filmography covers a breadth of genres, from Sam Mendes’ romantic drama “Empire of Light” to local weather change documentary “Before the Flood.” But they appear significantly well-suited to “Mutant Mayhem,” which guarantees to place the “Teenage” again in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” with a core voice forged fabricated from precise youngsters, and the identical enjoyable, anarchic animation model that was utilized in Rowe’s final movie, “The Mitchells vs. the Machine.”

The final time we noticed the Turtles on the large display, it was in a pair of CGI-led live-action motion pictures produced by (and directed within the model of) Michael Bay. The 1990 “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is extra fondly remembered — its sequels, much less so. “Mutant Mayhem” marks the primary theatrically-released animated function concerning the Turtles since 2007’s poorly-received “TMNT,” and represents a bigger shift in animation away from easy, polished, 3D laptop animation and into sketchier, extra experimental and creative types. It’s thrilling for that cause alone, however a soundtrack from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross is actually a pleasant bonus.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” releases in theaters on August 2, 2023.
