Prolific film composers and Nine Inch Nails members Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross made the music for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, the new movie’s director, Jeff Rowe, confirmed on Twitter.
After one of Reznor’s friends, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, let the news slip during a podcast appearance, Rowe tweeted, “Well now that my teenage hero @tonyhawk has leaked that my music heroes are doing this I can add that the score is absolutely AMAZING. Exhilarating, terrifying, heartbreaking, full of sounds I didn’t know existed. I don’t have the vocabulary to describe it. I love it so much.”
Seth Rogen, one of the film’s stars, writers, and producers, added on Instagram, “This has been a thrilling process and I can’t wait for you all to see this movie and hear this incredible score.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem hits U.S. theaters on Wednesday, August 2. The movie features voice acting from Rogen, Post Malone, Maya Rudolph, Ice Cube, Paul Rudd, Hannibal Buress, and more. Find a teaser trailer for the movie below.
In recent years, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have made music for Mank, Soul, Bones and All, Empire of Light, HBO’s Watchmen, and more. The most recent Nine Inch Nails albums, Ghosts V: Together and Ghosts VI: Locusts, came out in March 2020.
