    I found that the soundtrack was a stellar component of the film. Very excited for its release. Hope I can find updates here.

  2. I saw the movie on Saturday. As soon as I got home, I started searching for the soundtrack, but I couldn’t find it! MEMORANDUM to the producers of the movie (and the movie soundtrack): Always release the soundtrack along with the movie. Plenty of people walked out of that movie theater saying, I WANT THAT! I am suffering! Please, release the soundtrack ASAP!

  3. Linda says:

    Does anyone know why the soundtrack wasn’t released on iTunes?. It’s on amazon and google play but I really wanted to buy it from iTunes.

  4. Sheri Burpee says:

    While watching the Apollo 11 trailer i recognized a song from quite awhile ago. The only part of the lyric i remember is a phraze with “my imagination”. Can someone provide the name of the song. Its driving me bonkers! Thanks so much!!

    • Disney’s “Pure Imagination”, Willie Wonka

      • Amanda says:

        The song is called Pure Imagination but it’s not Disney. It’s actually Paramount/Warner Bros., and the movie is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

  5. Ramy Rahman says:

    I think it’s the Pixel version of Pure Imagination

  6. Mary Quinn says:

    on the return to Earth, that is an old song – it sounds like Bob Dylan.. Don’t hear it on any of the track samples… anyone have a lead?

    • Jim says:

      The song is “Mother Country” by John Stewart, although I’m not sure if they used one of his versions of the song or if it was a cover.
