Irish composer, Dean Valentine, has just scored the official trailer for the Paul Greengrass directed feature film, “Captain Phillips”, starring Tom Hanks. The film, which will hit cinemas later this year, tells the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.
This is not the first feature film trailer for Dean. Last year, he scored the US trailer music for Ridley Scott’s, “Prometheus”, which has had over 6 million YouTube hits. He has also composed music for “Ringer”, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Disney series, “Tales of Friendship with Winnie the Pooh”.
