It premiered last year at the Toronto International Film Festival under the title of “Can A Song Save Your Life?” and now, over half a year later, "Once" director John Carney’s latest will finally be hitting North American screens as “Begin Again.” Ahead of the musical romance film’s release later this week, The Weinstein Company has unloaded new TV spots, clips and featurettes to get you away from the multiplex and into the art house.
First up, however, are some details on the film’s soundtrack. The twelve track album – or sixteen, if you get the deluxe version – will feature music from and inspired by Carney’s film with cast members Keira Knightley, Adam Levine and CeeLo Green (Hailee Steinfeld also gets in on the action in a duet with Knightley) lending their pipes to the songs written by Gregg Alexander, Danielle Brisebois, Nick Lashley, Nick Southwood, Rick Nowels, Glen Hansard and Carney himself. The soundtrack isn’t for sale until July 1st but you can check out a clip for the acoustic version of the Levine-sung track “Lost Stars” below, along with tracklisting for both the regular and deluxe versions of the soundtrack.
And finally, the studio has let loose a pair of TV spots, a behind-the-scenes featurette and a new clip (via Yahoo) to divert your attention away from the Michael Bay’s latest loud monstrosity opening this weekend. Watch them all below.
