news culture Prey: the soundtrack of the latest film in the Predator saga inspired by a famous video game
Can acting be a source of inspiration? It is in any case true for the director of the film Prey, the last part of the Predator saga, who found his composer at the bend of a part on a game which you do not necessarily expect.
Prey launching today on Disney+
If you follow us regularly, you know that ”Prey”, the latest feature film in the Predator saga, is coming to Disney+ today. Several centuries before his face-to-face with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the first 1987 film, the Predator was already treading the earth at a time when the Comanche nation had not yet crossed paths with Europeans.
The starting point of Prey is all the more interesting because the film plays on the disproportionate difference of forces between the two campsthe Comanche hunters having to use all their trapping skills to try and escape the creature’s alien arsenal… just like in the first 1987 movie where the Predator was defeated not by guns but by death. cunning of his adversary. Prey was therefore particularly awaited by subscribers to the Disney + platform and the first opinions from the press are enthusiastic to say the least.
Music in the vein of Assassin’s Creed
In the media extension around the release of the film, director Dan Trachtenberg has revealed how he got the inspiration to portray the soundscape of Preythe fifth installment of the Predator saga.
When we were prepping the movie in Calgary I was playing AC Valhalla and was like “well this music is insanely beautiful. Who did this?” The answer is Sarah Schachner. You will be listening to her lots in the future I promise… https://t.co/nrp7Sk7HAS

When we were preparing the film in Calgary, I was playing AC Valhalla and I was like “this music is amazingly beautiful. Who made this?” The answer is Sarah Schachner. You will listen to it a lot in the future, I promise you… – Dan Trachtenberg (director of Prey)
It was therefore while playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that director Dan Trachtenberg became interested in the work of composer Sarah Schachner, also responsible for the music of the games Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Anthem, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare! On Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Sarah Schachner is co-composer alongside Jesper Kyd and Einar Selvik. In terms of film soundtracks, we still owe him the arrangements of Iron Man 3among other notable holdings.
For those wondering, the #PreyMovie soundtrack will be released on August 5 at the same time as the movie. – Sarah Schachner (composer of Prey)
