Christopher Lennertz' original score for Ride Along released.
Varèse Sarabande Records has released the Ride Along - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on CD. Universal Pictures’ Ride Along, which was directed by Tim Story, features an original score by Christopher Lennertz (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Horrible Bosses, Hop) and has been No. 1 at the box-office for the second weekend in a row.
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.
“Tim and I wanted to make sure that this film had equal parts action and comedy and that the audience really went along for the ride as well,” said Lennertz. “We knew we needed a full orchestra, classic electronics, and beats that would make you bounce in your seats and keep your heart pounding till the very end. With an amazing collaboration with top deejays NuMark and Cheapshot, we think we’ve brought the buddy cop action genre into the next era.”
Lennertz is a composer, producer, conductor, and arranger for film, television, video games, and records. He first made a splash with his breakout score for Alvin and the Chipmunks, which grossed more than $360 million worldwide. Since then, he’s proven his steadfast talent through films such as the star-studded comedy Horrible Bosses (Warner Bros. Pictures), for which he won a BMI Film Music Award, the successful Hop (Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment) and the box-office smash Identity Thief (Universal Pictures).
