WaterTower Music just announced the April 5 release of the soundtrack to SHAZAM! Directed by David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation), New Line Cinema’s superhero origin story will be in theaters April 5, 2019.
The 29-track SHAZAM! soundtrack album features original san core by acclaimed composer Benjamin Wallfisch (Blade Runner 2049, IT), under the direction of David F. Sandberg, with whom he worked on the box office hit Annabelle: Creation.
“It’s always such an incredible joy collaborating with David,” explained Wallfisch. “Not only is he a visionary filmmaker, he’s also a great musician. We both have a shared love of the classic superhero, fantasy and adventure scores of the 80s, and we started the SHAZAM! score by trying to channel the feeling of wonder and hope that incredible music gives you. It felt like being a kid again; I grew up in the 80s in total awe of, and in love with that music.”
Sandberg spoke about working with Wallfisch on the film’s music. “Ben is the only composer I’ve worked with so far, and the guy is amazing,” explains the director. “Something we talked about is that I wanted it to feel very much like a classic superhero score, because Shazam is a Golden Age Super Hero, and I wanted to honor that history.”

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM! – this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
The film is directed by David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) with a Screenplay by Henry Gayden, Story by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke, based on characters from DC. Shazam created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck.
