Atlantic Unveils "ARTHUR AND THE INVISIBLES: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" Album Slated for January Release

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 28, 2006 -- Atlantic Records has announced the forthcoming release of "ARTHUR AND THE INVISIBLES: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK," the companion soundtrack album to the upcoming MGM release of a Weinstein Company presentation. Due in stores on January 9, 2007, the soundtrack album features new tracks by Jewel, Snoop Dogg and Elijah as well as the Original Motion Picture Score. The film is set for wide release in the U.S. on January 12, 2007.

The first single from "ARTHUR AND THE INVISIBLES: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK" will be Jewel's "Quest for Love." The album also features Snoop Dogg's "Go Girl" and Elijah's "It's A Beautiful Day."

From the creative mind of talented filmmaker Luc Besson ("La Femme Nikita," "The Fifth Element") comes a larger-than-life, family adventure about a boy who, after his grandfather disappears, sets out to save his family home from emerging real estate developers. Arthur learns that he must follow his grandfather's ancient clues to a vast treasure -- and unlock the passageway to a spectacular new world filled with mysterious little people, so tiny they are considered invisible, and enlist their help. But once in the magical land, Arthur must join swords with a beautiful princess and a reckless army of defenders to save the land from the evil wizard. It seems like an impossible task, but as he discovers along the way, sometimes the smallest heroes can make the biggest difference.

Using a dazzling new combination of live action and groundbreaking CGI technology, "Arthur And The Invisibles" is a story about the true meaning of courage and the endless power of imagination. The film stars Mia Farrow and Freddie Highmore, featuring the voices of Madonna, David Bowie, and Snoop Dogg. "Arthur And The Invisibles" was written and directed by Luc Besson and is based on the best-selling children's book, "Arthur and the Minimoys." The film will be released nationwide on January 12, 2007.
