For the first time ever, the Academy Award® winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is set to come to Manila LIVE in Concert for a limited run this holiday season. Catch the shows on December 30 Saturday at 3PM and 7PM at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier. Presented by Wilbros Live.
This masterpiece of film animation will be shown on a huge HD screen and will be accompanied by a unique fusion of live orchestra, turntables and percussion playing the music from the score and soundtrack.
After an eagerly anticipated and glowing sold-out world premiere at the historic Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York last March, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Live in Concert will be touring more cities around the world.
Reaction to the world premiere was overwhelming, with audience members saying ‘I loved it even more watching it with an incredible live orchestra.’ and ‘One of the most incredible experiences I’ve had.’
The one-of-a-kind show is ground-breaking in replication of the film’s score and soundtrack, fusing elements of orchestral with turntables and live DJ, and electronics for a rare and bold live experience.
A Sony Pictures Animation film, directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman and written by Phil Lord and Rothman, the movie introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
The music score for the box office hit was composed by Academy Award® nominee, multiple Golden Globe®-nominee and Emmy-winning composer Daniel Pemberton, known for his work on movies such as The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Oceans 8, Enola Holmes, The Bad Guys and Steve Jobs.
The hip-hop based film score contains original music, showcasing elements of heroism and resilience, all complemented by song contributions from industry greats Post Malone, Lil Wayne, Jaden Smith and Nicki Minaj.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of my favourite scores I’ve ever written. Utilising a full orchestra, crazy electronics and unbelievable turntable scratching techniques amongst a million other things, it is so technically complex I never thought we’d ever be able to actually reproduce it in a live concert, but somehow, we have”, said Pemberton on the project.
Sony Pictures Animation’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse received great praise from critics and audiences for its ground-breaking visual style, characters, story, voice acting, and soundtrack. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the highly anticipated sequel, was released in theatres in June 2023.
