Lionsgate chooses The Hit House’s trailer music to enhance the action in its “Robin Hood” official teaser trailer.

Leonardo DiCaprio & Jennifer Davisson’s new production of Robin Hood targets U.S. theaters for November 21, but nothing is more important than building the marketing hype in the now. Therefore Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment chose to use The Hit House’s track, “Thermodynamic” by composer Scott Lee Miller, from our “KINETIC RE:ACTION” album, to build the tension, suspense, & action in its official teaser trailer (from 1:15-end). The spot highlights the breadth of the romance, suspense, chaos, & revolution that revolve around the characters of Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Little John, & the Sheriff of Nottingham in this new film.

Directed by Otto Bathurst, Robin Hood delivers a fresh take on the tale of Robin of Loxley aka Robin Hood (Taron Egerton) who along with his friend & Moorish commander Little John (Jamie Foxx), leads a courageous revolt against the insidious corruption of the English crown. The drama unfolds with thrilling action adventure, audacious fight choreography, & is threaded with a timeless & fiery romance between Robin Hood & Maid Marian (Eve Hewson). Also starring, Ben Mendelsohn as Sheriff of Nottingham, Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck, Jamie Dornan, Paul Anderson as Guy of Gisborne, Josh Herdman as Righteous, & Björn Bengtsson as Tydon.

Nothing gives more of a thrill than the rise of an underdog attempting to usurp the corrupt establishment, & thus The Hit House’s track “Thermodynamic” is happy to give energy to the coming revolution in Robin Hood. A tale of courage for both big & small, this fall, look for “The Hood,” as the all-star casts shoots into a theater near you.
