LOS ANGELES, June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In Screen Gems' new comedy Friends with Benefits, Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) think it's going to be easy to add the simple act of sex to their friendship, despite what Hollywood romantic comedies would have them believe. They soon discover however that getting physical really does always lead to complications. The film's cast also includes Patricia Clarkson, Jenna Elfman, Bryan Greenberg, with Richard Jenkins and Woody Harrelson. The film will be released nationwide on Friday, July 22nd.
The soundtrack plays an integral part to the characters in the movie, with such fun classics as Kris Kross' '90s hit "Jump," Semisonic's perennial hit "Closing Time," and Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride (Philip Steir Remix)." In addition, new buzz-worthy artists are also featured including Fitz and the Tantrums, Max & Simon, and Peter Conway, as well as popular established artists like G. Love and Special Sauce, Grant Lee Phillips, and Greg Laswell. A notable contribution comes from indie band Rogue Wave with a cover of OK Go's song "This Too Shall Pass," created specifically for the film.
Filmmaker Will Gluck was instrumental in the soundtrack, serving as its executive producer and working closely with music supervisor, Wende Crowley. "Because we chose not to use a composer, these songs are truly the soundtrack to this movie. I couldn't be more excited about this compilation," says Gluck.
In addition to being in stores, on Itunes and Amazon on July 19th, the soundtrack will also be available physically via Amazon's Disc-On-Demand service which offers physical product at a direct-to-consumer level through Amazon's webstore.
