THE PROMOTION! Soundtrack Features Original Music By Alex Wurman Now Available (June 2, 2008- Los Angeles, CA) - Lakeshore Records will release the original soundtrack for The Promotion in stores on June 10. Alex Wurman (March of the Penguins, Confessions of A Dangerous Mind) composed the music for the film, which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, TX. Some may say that Alex Wurman went into the family business, when he became a composer. His father, Hans Wurman, is an arranger and composer who was a pioneer in electronic music recording on the first Moog synthesizer. He also recorded radio plays featuring well known actors. Alex's exposure to the business, both through his father and other generations of his family who studied and performed music, led him to attend the Academy of Performing Arts High School in Chicago, later studying composition at the University of Miami in Coral Gables and also the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago. Alex Wurman's critically acclaimed score for the Academy AwardT winning documentary March of the Penguins was integral to the film's commercial success. His next film was for the blockbuster Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby. Equally adept at scoring for comedy as for drama, Wurman's credits also include Confessions of A Dangerous Mind, Thirteen Conversations About One Thing, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and the recent film Run, Fat Boy, Run The Promotion stars Oscar-nominated actor, John C. Reilly (Chicago, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) and Seann William Scott (American Pie) who lend their deft comedic touch to the story of two mid-level Chicago supermarket employees Doug and Richard, a dubious new guy from Canada - who compete ruthlessly for a coveted managerial post at a new store location. Doug and Richard could not be more different, but going head-to-head in a contest of wits and will reveals how they have more in common than they once suspected. The film is the directorial debut of Steve Conrad, the writer of the The Pursuit of Happyness. The Weinstein Co. presents The Promotion, in theaters on June 6, 2008.
