Three new movies are opening wide this weekend:

Tony Scott’s new thriller Unstoppable starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson features a score by Harry Gregson-Williams. The movie has received the best reviews for any movie by the director in over a decade. The score has been described as a hybrid electronic/orchestral score in the vein of Gregson-Williams’ other scores for the director (Man on Fire, The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3). La-La-Land Records will be releasing a soundtrack album, featuring the score on December 7. To pre-order the CD, visit Amazon.

Also opening this weekend is the sci-fi thriller Skyline directed by the Strause brothers (AVP: Requiem). The movie stars Eric Balfour and Donald Faison and features an orchestral score by newcomer Matthew Margeson. Varese Sarabande has announced a soundtrack release coming out November 16. The movie is co-produced by composer Brian Tyler, who originally was supposed to score the movie. Skyline marks Margeson’s first studio feature credit. To order the CD, visit Amazon or click here to download the score and listen to audio clips.

Finally, Paramount has released the comedy Morning Glory starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Patrick Wilson on Wednesday. The movie directed by Roger Michell features a number of songs (including Strip Me by Natasha Bedingfield, which has been used in the movie’s trailer and can be heard during the film’s end credits), plus an original score by David Arnold. The movie contains roughly 30 minutes of Arnold’s score, which has a jazzy feeling during the film’s comedy moments and includes some big orchestral statements during the movie’s emotional moments. No soundtrack album has been announced at this point.
