Good Morning, Ethan...
This week, your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to help us celebrate the twentieth anniversary of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2. The dark horse (or black sheep depending on how you feel) of the franchise, M:I-2 is often parodied for its hyper-stylization and turn-of-the-millennium aesthetics, but it is important for a number of reasons. Not only did it set the template for the series to be filmmaker focused, but it's also scored by one of the most prolific and important composers of our time, Hans Zimmer.
We are super excited to present Hans Zimmer's complete, expanded, and remastered score for the film – not only for the first time on vinyl, but for the first time EVER.
As always, all new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at Noon CST.
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2 - MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE SCORE (EXPANDED EDITION) 2XLP
Mondo Music, in conjunction with Hollywood Records, are proud to present the premiere vinyl pressing of Hans Zimmer’s complete score to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2.
Producer and star Tom Cruise knew he wanted each chapter of the series to have a different feel from the last, so he hired director John Woo, hot off his 1997 blockbuster FACE/OFF, for the eagerly anticipated follow up. In doing so, Cruise set the stage for the shift in style and tone in the subsequent films to come.
Composer Hans Zimmer had the task of ushering Lalo Schifrin’s iconic score into the new millennium. Tracks like “Nyah” and “Injection” have become fan favorites of Zimmer’s devoted following. For the first time in any format, we are proud to present Hans Zimmer’s complete score, sourced from the original master tapes and presented on 180 Gram vinyl.
