    Poor Lennertz's. Alvin and the Chipmunks. Sad really. He deserves sooooo much better. Oh well, I'm sure his score will be great.

  1. On his site it says he'll be using the theme Poledouris wrote for "Bunyan and Babe" before he passed, so maybe that'll be a bigger assignement.

    COMPOSER
    CHRISTOPHER LENNERTZ FILM
    “MEET THE SPARTANS”
    #1 AT BOX OFFICE

    Composer’s Second Fox Film in 30 days to reach #1


    (Los Angeles, CA) Award-winning composer Christopher Lennertz’s newest score of Epic proportions to Fox’s spoof comedy “Meet the Spartans” is #1 at the box office. “Meet the Spartans” mixes “300” with films like “Stomp the Yard” and also features its share of celebrity bashing scenarios. The cast includes Carmen Elektra, Diedrich Bader and Method Man. The score was recorded using a 94-piece symphony and an 80-voice choir. Last month, “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” another Lennertz scored film, hit #1 at the box office and continues to dominate, grossing over $200 million.

    “I decided to take the score one step further and mix in sounds from around the world, even beyond the Middle Eastern elements that people would be expecting,” says Lennertz. “The lyrics being sung are based on a poem that I wrote after seeing the final cut of the film, and I had them translated into Greek. So when you hear a haunting wail floating above the lush orchestra chords, keep in mind that the words actually mean ‘Death by Penguin Testicles.’”

    His score for “The Simpsons Game” helped the hit videogame receive a nomination for Best Action Game of 2007 at the 1UP Awards. His other music awards and nominations include an Emmy for the CW’s “Supernatural,” three 2007 Film & TV Music Awards for “Supernatural” and “Tortilla Heaven” (collaborating with Ozomatli) the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Award for “Medal of Honor: Rising Sun,” and The Don B. Ray Educational Achievement Award.

    Lennertz’s additional film, TV and videogame credits include: “Soul Plane” in which he collaborated with RZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Fox’s “Brimstone,” and MTV’s “Tough Enough,” which appeared on the Billboard top 100 charts for weeks; his powerful, full orchestral score for the Stephen Spielberg-created videogame “Medal of Honor: Rising Sun” led him to score more “Medal of Honor” games as well as the popular James Bond videogame. Christopher Lennertz’ next project is “Confessions of an Action Star” with Angelina Jolie and is writing the music for the video game ''Tiberium''

    This guy needs a big movie to score (not crap like ''Meet The Spartans'', come on). He's clearly proven he can write great music with Rising Sun, Pacific Assault, Gun and From Russia With Love but he rarely gets a chance unless it's for a game. sad

    Wasn't Lennertz a protegé of Poledouris?

    Hmmm....I may be confusing him with Christopher Tyng (or....which is more likely - BOTH of these were proteges of the late mr. P).

    I don't know what part of that is funnier: the idea that Lennertz thinks that McCain personally chooses the music for his campaign ads or the idea that McCain would actually give a $h!t that the composer of Meet the Spartans doesn't support him. LOL

    I know Chris and he's a very cool guy but this whole thingy is a bit too much, imo. Clearly there aren't any copyright violation issues behind this, it's more about Obama being a celebrity wink
