Water Tower Music, the record label releasing Alan Silvestri's Ready Player One soundtrack, has revealed Akira Ifukube's Godzilla Theme will make a brief appearance in the film. In addition to the original Godzilla Theme, Max Steiner's music from the 1933 King Kong will be referenced.
Godzilla's Theme will be heard on Track 13 entitled "Looking for a Truck"--A track title that suggests it may take place during the racetrack sequence. Earlier we reported a rumor of Godzilla appearing during that scene. Music from Steiner's King Kong will be heard on Track 3, "Why Can't We Go Backwards?"
The music is described in the liner notes as an "interpolation" of these themes--Meaning they will likely be quick inserts for key visuals in the film. Regardless, this may mark the first time the great Akira Ifukube's Godzilla Theme is heard in an American production.
Thanks to John DeSentis of the monumental Symphonic Fury! The Music of Japanese Monsters for pointing it out to fans.
The Ready Player One soundtrack by Alan Silvestri will be released March 30th, 2018 The film directed by Steven Spielberg will hit theaters March 29th, 2018.
