(May 26, 2010- Santa Monica, CA) – LIONSGATE® (NYSE: LGF), the leading next generation studio, announces the release of Killers Soundtrack, available digitally for $9.99 from Lionsgate Music on June 1, 2010, timed to the June 4th theatrical release of the film. The action-packed romantic comedy, Killers, is directed by Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde, The Ugly Truth, 21) and stars Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher. The soundtrack boasts a lineup that matches the film’s exuberant spirit, including a new song from Grammy Award® winner Macy Gray and a whimsical score by Rolfe Kent (Up in The Air, Sideways).

After selling more than 15 million albums worldwide, Macy Gray returns with “Beauty In The World,” her anticipated first new single in three years. “I love Ashton and Katherine and I am thrilled that my new song "Beauty In The World" is in their new movie, Killers. It's a big summer song for a big summer movie,” said Gray.

Other songs on the soundtrack include, Salvador Santana’s bouncy and fun “Under The Sun,” as well as the new track from neo-soul media darlings Nikki & Rich titled “Cat and Mouse.” Soul and R&B inflections turn into fun romps with debut tracks from Britain’s Rox (“I Don’t Believe”) and the Brooklyn based Menahan Street Band (“Montego Sunset”), while Vanessa Contenay-Quinones, lead singer of France’s Vanessa and The O’s, delivers her first solo single (“Bon Bon Bon”). Electronica duo Bitter:Sweet tease with the beautiful “A Moment,” and classic rock group Faces contribute their hit “Ooh La La.” Rounding out the album is original score from acclaimed composer Rolfe Kent. “The Killers soundtrack showcases the romantic upbeat vibe of the film, and we are thrilled to have assembled such a strong collection of songs from established and emerging artists including Macy Gray, Salvador Santana and Nikki & Rich,” said Tracy McKnight, Head of Film Music for Lionsgate.

The score takes you on a fun, flirty and mysterious journey from exotic locales, to the comforts of the suburbs, through the thrilling twists and turns of Killers. Kent has written music for more than thirty films including the Golden Globe® nominated score for Sideways, as well as the highly regarded scores for About Schmidt, Election, Mean Girls, Nurse Betty, Legally Blonde, Wedding Crashers, Thank You For Smoking, The Men Who Stare At Goats, and Up in the Air.

About Killers
Trying to recover from a sudden break-up, Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) believes she’ll never fall in love again. But when she reluctantly joins her parents on a trip to the French Riviera, Jen happens to meet the man of her dreams, the dashing, handsome Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kutcher). Three years later, her seemingly impossible wish has come true: she and Spencer are newlyweds living the ideal suburban life – that is, until the morning after Spencer’s 30th birthday when bullets start flying. Literally.

It turns out Spencer never bothered to tell Jen he was once an international super-spy, and now Jen's perfect world has been turned upside down. Faced with the fact that her husband is a hit man, Jen is determined to discover what other secrets Spencer might be keeping – all the while trying to dodge bullets, keep up neighborly appearances, manage the in-laws…and work out some major trust issues.

And you thought suburban life was easy.

Starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl, directed by Robert Luketic from a screenplay by Bob DeRosa and T.M. Griffin and story by Bob DeRosa, Lionsgate’s Killers is a hilarious, unpredictable romantic comedy about love, marriage and serious firepower. Lionsgate presents an Aversano Films and Katalyst Films and Lionsgate production.
