UPDATE (June 1, 2011): The soundtrack is now available to pre-order on Amazon.

The first trailer of the upcoming teen comedy Monte Carlo recently surfaced online. A closer look to the trailer’s credits reveals that a soundtrack album for the film will be released by Varese Sarabande Records. Given the label’s relationship with composer Michael Giacchino, we expect the album to feature the original score from the movie. Monte Carlo tells the story of a girl and her best friend who travel to Paris with one girl’s future stepsister, where one of the girls is mistaken for a spoiled British heiress, which leads the girls to find themselves going on a dream vacation to Monte Carlo. The movie stars Leighton Meester, Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy and Andie MacDowell. The film reunites Giacchino with director Tom Bezucha who previosuly worked with the composer on the holiday drama The Family Stone. Nicole Kidman is among the film’s producers. Monte Carlo is set for a summer relase on July 1, 2011.

In related news, Collider recently interviewed Giacchino about his other upcoming projects, including J.J. Abrams’ Super 8, Pixar’s Cars 2 and Brad Bird’s Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol. To read the interview, click here and visit our previous article on Giacchino’s upcoming projects.
