The original motion picture soundtrack for the big screen Warner Bros. action/thriller/mystery "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" opening in select L.A. and N.Y. theaters Sept. 16, and opening in wide release nationwide throughout North American theaters Oct. 1, 2005. This knockout directorial debut from screenwriter Shane Black ("Lethal Weapon", "The Long Kiss Goodnight) is produced by Joel Silver ("Die Hard", "Lethal Weapon" and "The Matrix") and stars Robert Downey, Jr., Val Kilmer and sexy newcomer Michelle Monaghan ("Boston Public"). Acclaimed composer John Ottman ("The Usual Suspects", "X-Men 2", "The Fantastic Four") fashions a positively dynamic score that enrices this film's suspense, romance and humor.
A loving homage to the classic Detective Thriller genre, "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" was a hit at this year's Cannes film festival and is being talked about already as an Oscar contender in all the major categories. The film's unique, lively spirit is perfectly encapsulated in Mr. Ottman's accomplished score. Warner Bros. is supporting the film's release with a national ad campaign, reaching all major markets.
