Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will head to the Kings Theater for a live concert in March. The screening of Sony’s Oscar-winning animated film will be accompanied by an orchestra, band and turntables playing music from the score and soundtrack.
Released in 2018, the film is the first-ever animated feature in the Spider-Man franchise. It has distinct art and animation styles that look like a comic book come to life. It was highly praised by critics and fans alike for its animation, plethora of characters, story, and soundtracks. Directed by the trio of Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramseyand Rodney Rothman, who also co-wrote the story with Phil Lord, the film won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Located in New York, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse features Miles Morales, who after being bitten by a radioactive spider gains superpowers and teams up with Spider-People from different dimensions to take on Kingpin.
The original music was composed by the Golden Globe nominee Daniel Pemberton, who will be on hand for the world premiere concert in Brooklyn. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of my favorite scores I’ve ever written,” Pemberton said. He further revealed that the use of a full orchestra, crazy electronics and incredible turntable scratching techniques, among other things, is so technically complex that “I never thought we’d be able to to play it live. But somehow, we made it. I always dreamed that the first place this would ever be heard would be Miles’ house – Brooklyn. Further, sharing his excitement, the composer said:
“I’m ridiculously excited to be able to perform the world’s first-ever Spider-Verse concert in the iconic neighborhood where the story begins, bringing a full orchestra with the band, synths AND a set of turntables on stage for the world premiere in March. . .”
Into the Spider-Verse features a diverse cast, including Shameik Moore like Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld like Gwen Stacy, Jacques Johnson as Peter B. Parker, Chris Pine as Peter Parker, and Mahershala Ali as Mile’s uncle Aaron Davis aka Prowler. The feature film was produced by Lord, Miller, Avi Arad, Amy Pascaland Christina Steinberg.
There are two more sequels coming out for the movie, Spider-Man through the Spider-Verse and Spider-Man Beyond the Spider-Verse, creating a two-part story marking the end of the trilogy. The recently released trailer for Through the Spider-Verse got fans excited for its June 2023 release with an ensemble cast of Spider-People and The Spot as the antagonist.
