THE MUSIC AND CHARACTERS IN DOZENS OF SONGS WRITTEN BY

THE GREATEST SONGWRITERS OF ALL TIME PROVIDE BOTH THE

SOUNDTRACK AND STORYLINE FOR ORIGINAL MOVIE MUSICAL

Across The Universe

The original movie musical Across The Universe, directed

by Julie Taymor (Broadway's "The Lion King," Frida) and

penned by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais (The

Commitments), brings not only the music of the greatest

songwriters of all time but also the characters and

stories in their timeless songs--performed by the actors

in the film--to the big screen.

Across The Universe: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

(Interscope Records) will be released September 18, 2007,

in a single-CD edition of 16 selections. Revolution

Studios' Across The Universe premieres September 14.

Beginning with over 200 songs by John Lennon & Paul

McCartney, as well as George Harrison and Ringo Starr,

the filmmakers eventually chose 30 songs that they felt

best told the story of a generation. A love story set

against the backdrop of the 1960s, turbulent years of

anti-war protest, mind exploration and rock 'n' roll,

Across The Universe is centered on characters heard in

those songs, with the lyrics often part of the dialogue.

Utilizing live action plus animation and digital effects,

Across The Universe moves from the dockyards of Liverpool

to Greenwich Village, the riot-torn streets of Detroit to

Vietnam.

The film's stars, headed by Jim Sturgess as Jude, Golden

Globe nominee Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen) as Lucy, Joe

Anderson as Max, Dana Fuchs as Sadie and Martin Luther as

JoJo, as well as Salma Hayek, are joined by U2's Bono,

rock icon Joe Cocker and well-known comedian Eddie Izzard.

Bono performs "I Am The Walrus" as Dr. Robert (and "Lucy

In The Sky With Diamonds" over the end titles); Cocker

sings "Come Together" in three different guises--pimp,

homeless man and hippie, and Izzard portrays circus

ringleader Mr. Kite rendering "The Benefit Of Mr. Kite."

The other stars perform songs from the catalog of the

songwriters who defined a generation, including, "Across

The Universe," "Girl," "Helter Skelter," "Hold Me Tight,"

"All My Loving," "I Want To Hold Your Hand," "With A Little

Help From My Friends," "It Won't Be Long," "I've Just

Seen A Face," "Let It Be," "Why Don't We Do It In The Road,"

"If I Fell," "I Want You," "Dear Prudence," "Because,"

"Something," "Oh! Darling," "Strawberry Fields,"

"Revolution," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "Happiness Is

A Warm Gun," "Blackbird," "Hey Jude," "Don't Let Me Down"

and "All You Need Is Love."

In addition, neo-psychedelic rockers The Secret Machines

collaborated with Oscar-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal

on their versions of "Flying" and "Blue Jay Way." Goldenthal

also wrote the score to the film and produced and rearranged

the rest of the 31 songs along with T-Bone Burnett and

Matthias Gohl.

Taymor received two Tony Awards for her work on "The Lion

King," making her the first woman to win a Tony for directing

a musical. She then transitioned to movies, directing Titus

in 1999 and Frida in 2002. The latter garnered six Academy

Award nominations and won two, including for Best Original

Score (with Goldenthal).
