Jed Kurzel & Kevin Kiner

Lakeshore Records is set to release Samaritan—Amazon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring music by Jed Kurzel and Kevin Kiner, digitally August 26. The pulsating score merges menacing electronics with dark orchestration to provide an ominous backdrop to the vigilante-themed thriller.  Samaritan is an MGM film directed by Julius Avery with a screenplay by Bragi F. Schut and starring Sylvester Stallone.

The film premieres exclusively on Prime Video globally starting August 26. Thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton) suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith (Sylvester Stallone) is actually a legend hiding in plain sight. Twenty-five years ago, Granite City’s super-powered vigilante, Samaritan, was reported dead after a fiery warehouse battle with his rival, Nemesis. Most believe Samaritan perished in the fire, but some in the city, like Sam, have hope that he is still alive. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbor out of hiding to save the city from ruin.

 Says Kiner: “I’ve always loved collaborating with other composers and my experience with Jed Kurzel has been one of my favorite associations thus far. I believe you will find an extremely unique unorthodox sound as you listen to the Samaritan soundtrack. This is a goal I always set out to achieve when I am composing, but pulling off a truly fresh vibe and palette is easier said than done. I hope you have as much fun listening as we did working on this rollicking ride!”

His feature film debut for the critically-acclaimed Australian movie The Snowtown Murders was named Feature Film Score of the Year at Australia’s 2011 Screen Music Awards and he has since gone on to score feature films including: The Babadook (Dir: Jennifer Kent), which William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist, described as the most “terrifying film” he had ever seen; Slow West (Dir: John Maclean), which won Jed his second Australian and New Zealand Screen Music Award for Feature Film Score of the Year in 2015; Macbeth (Dir: Justin Kurzel), starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, which premiered in competition at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival; Assassin’s Creed (Dir: Justin Kurzel); Alien: Covenant for master auteur Ridley Scott; Jupiter’s Moon (Dir: Kornel Mundruczo) which premiered in competition at Cannes in 2017; Una (Dir: Benedict Andrews), the film adaptation of David Harrower’s Oliver Award- winning play Blackbird, starring Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn; Overlord for producer J.J.

Annie Award-winning composer Kevin Kiner has also been honored with multiple Emmy and other Annie Nominations, and won 20 BMI Film & TV Awards, making him one of the most versatile and sought-after composer in Hollywood. Over more than a decade, working with George Lucas and Dave Filoni, Kevin scored all seven seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which earned him the 2021 Annie Award for “Best Music – TV/ Media” tor the series finale episode “Victory and Death”, as well as a Primetime Emmy nomination.

 His other diverse credits include HBO Max’s Peacemaker, Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico, HBO Max’s Titans and Doom Patrol, Showtime’s City on a Hill, AMC’s hit series Dark Winds and Hell on Wheels, CBS’s CSI: Miami, and CW’s Jane the Virgin. From his intimate, soloistic guitar music to his grand orchestral music, Kevin has transported audience from deserts to metropolises – and even to a galaxy far, far away.
