Starring Tom Hardy and directed by Josh Trank, CAPONE chronicles the inglorious final year of notorious gangster Al Capone’s life. At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Alfonse’s mind and his past becomes present. Harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life.
The film’s hypnotic soundtrack was composed and produced by legendary Run The Jewels’ producer and rapper EL-P and was co-produced by long time EL-P collaborator Wilder Zoby (Run the Jewels, Roma). This marks the first complete film score from EL-P since 2004’s Bomb The System, and arrives on the heels of score contributions to Fantastic 4 (for which EL-P scored the end credits, which marked the beginning of his working relationship with Capone director Josh Trank) and 2016’s Bleed For This (directed by Ben Younger) as well as contributing to the soundtrack for 2018’s Oscar winning Roma (directed by Alfonso Cuarón). With Capone, EL-P is stepping out as a bold new voice in the film music world and his emotive, tense, and beautiful score is unlike anything he’s done before.
Capone is now available anywhere you can buy or rent movies via Vertical Entertainment.
