"It made the movie feel and sound really cool," said Randy Spendlove, president of Paramount Pictures' movie music division. "After we layered in the music, we reached out to their management in the U.S. and the U.K. to see how we could reach beyond the movie. We wanted (the relationship) to be bigger than that."

Marc Beltrami's score will be the soundtrack release, but Muse's music will be used for trailers on all platforms.
