Two new movies are opening in wide release this weekend:

Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch starring Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino and Jon Hamm features music by Tyler Bates and Marius DeVries. A soundtrack with songs from the movie has been released this week by Watertower Music. To listen to audio clips and download the album, visit Amazon and iTunes. Bates and DeVries were also heavily involved in arranging the film’s songs. For an article discussing the film’s music with quotes from both composers, visit Rolling Stone. Also check out our previous article to find more about the project. No announcement has been made if any of the score from the film will be released.

Also opening wide is the family comedy Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules starring Zachary Gordon, Rachael Harris and Steve Zahn. The film’s music is composed by Edward Shearmur (visit our article on the scoring assignment). No soundtrack release has been announced. Theodore Shapiro’s score for the first part was released a couple of months after the film’s release, which makes it seem possible that a soundtrack release for the sequel will be coming out later this year.

Opening in limited release is Barry W. Blaustein’s comedy Peep World starring Michael C. Hall, Judy Greer, Taraji B. Henson, Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson, Kate Mara, Ron Rifkin, Ben Schwartz and Lesley Ann Warren. The film’s score is written by Jeff Cardoni. No information on a soundtrack release is available, but a couple of tracks from the score can be listened to at Cardoni’s webpage. To find out more about the film, visit IFC’s movie webpage.

Also opening is the French hit comedy Potiche starring Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu. The film’s music is written by Philippe Rombi. A soundtrack album with songs from the film and Rombi’s original score has been released last fall in Europe and is currently only available as an import in the US. Visit Amazon France to listen to audio clips from the album and visit Music Box Film’s Potiche site for more information on the film.

Opening in selected cities is the drama White Irish Drinkers starring Nick Thurston, Geoffrey Wigdor and Stephen Lang. The movie is directed by John Gray and features music by Mark Snow. Snow has worked with Gray on multiple project including 1995’s theatrical feature Born to Be Wild. No soundtrack plans are known at the moment. Details on the film can be found on the official movie webpage.

Also opening in limited release is Julian Schnabel’s Miral about orphaned Palestinian girl growing up in the wake of Arab-Israeli war who finds herself drawn into the conflict. The film stars Freida Pinto, Hiam Abbass, Willem Dafoe and Vanessa Redgrave. Schnabel serves as the film’s music supervisor. Unlike his previous movies (Before Night Falls scored by Carter Burwell and The Diving Bell and Butterfly scored by Paul Cantelon), Miral doesn’t feature any original score and no soundtrack release has been announced.
