Going In Style Soundtrack Available March 31

Soundtrack Highlights Include a New Duet Sung by Alan Arkin &
Ann-Margret Plus a New Jamie Cullum Song

Features Score by Rob Simonsen

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WaterTower Music today announced the March 31 release date of the
soundtrack to Going In Style, the new comedy that teams up Oscar
winners Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), Michael Caine (The
Cider House Rules, Hannah and Her Sisters
) and Alan Arkin (Little
Miss Sunshine
), and is in theatres nationwide April 7.

The soundtrack was produced by Going In Style director Zach
Braff, who explained his philosophy about the music. “What I wanted to
do with this soundtrack was have a mix of music that the characters
might listen to; and I also wanted a mix of the sounds of the city,
since it takes place in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.” The soundtrack
features the film’s stars Alan Arkin and Ann-Margret singing on their
newly recorded duet, “Hallelujah I Love Her So,” and Jamie Cullum’s new
rendition of “Hey, Look Me Over,” along with a fun and eclectic mix of
songs from the film. Dean Martin, Otis Redding, Dinah Washington, Sonny
Rollins, and Sam Cooke classics are co-mingled seamlessly with music
from A Tribe Called Quest and Mark Ronson featuring Mystikal.

“Hallelujah I Love Her So”
performed by Alan
Arkin and Ann-Margret

“Hey Look Me Over”
performed by Jamie Cullum

“FBI Closes In”
composed by Rob Simonsen

Composer Rob Simonsen (Age of Adeline, Foxcatcher) “did this
amazing score that was full of heart, melody, and action,” explains
Braff. Simonsen, who previously worked with Braff on Wish I Was Here,
has seven of his compositions from the film included on the soundtrack.
“Zach is quite talented when it comes to using music and songs in films,
always driving at the right emotion,” says the composer. “So it was
exciting to get a chance to create a big, fun score for Going In Style. We
worked hard to do something that was modern, with a slight nod to some
of the great, jazzy heist scores of the ‘60s and ‘70s. We hope you enjoy
listening and watching as much as we did creating it.”

Composer Rob Simonsen has had a thread in the fabric of some of the most
noteworthy and prestigious films of the past decade. He spanned an
eternity of star-crossed romance with The Age of Adaline, starring
Blake Lively and Harrison Ford, also co-writing the film’s end credits
song. He collaborated with director Bennett Miller to underline the
unsettling atmosphere of the Oscar-nominated drama Foxcatcher;
scored the Steve Carell-starring dramedy The Way Way Back with
sensitivity; sympathized with the coming-of-age The Spectacular Now; delved
deep into the controversial 1969 Stonewall riots musically with Roland
Emmerich’s political drama Stonewall; sweetened Zach Braff’s
coming-of-middle-age film Wish I Was Here; and spiced things up
with Bradley Cooper’s Burnt, directed by John Wells. His
work in television includes the CBS comedy Life in Pieces, the
Joss Whedon Fox drama Dollhouse, and the CBS ratings juggernaut Blue
led by Tom Selleck. Simonsen recently completed the action
thriller Nerve, starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco; the comedy The
Master Cleanse;
and Viral from Blumhouse Productions. His
upcoming projects include the comedy Bastards, directed by
Lawrence Sher, and the drama Gifted, directed by Marc
Webb. Prior to flying solo, under the apprenticeship of composer Mychael
Danna, Simonsen contributed additional music to the scores for Ang Lee’s Life
of Pi,
which won an Oscar for Best Score, and Bennett Miller’s Moneyball,
Oscar-nominated for Best Picture—as well as Catherine Hardwick’s The
Nativity Story,
the animated film Surf’s Up, and Terry
Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. With Danna he
co-composed the score for Marc Webb’s hugely popular indie romance (500)
Days of Summer.
Simonsen’s compositional voice is the
product of an education in both rock and traditional orchestral music.
He co-founded The Echo Society, a collective that provides a platform
for composers to experiment and create for live performances around Los


Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin team up as
lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Albert, who decide to buck retirement

when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty. Desperate to pay
the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all
by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded
with their money, in director Zach Braff’s comedy Going In Style.
Also starring are two-time Oscar nominee Ann-Margret (Tommy, Carnal
), Joey King, John Ortiz, Peter Serafinowicz and Kenan
Thompson, with Oscar nominee Matt Dillon (Crash) and Christopher
