BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, featuring music composed by James Horner (STAR TREK II & III, KRULL, ALIENS, AVATAR) for the 1980 science fiction cult classic directed by Jimmy T. Murakami (WHEN THE WIND BLOWS, CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE MOVIE, HEAVY METAL), produced by the great Roger Corman, featuring a script by John Sayles (PIRANHA, THE HOWLING, ALLIGATOR, MATEWAN, LONE STAR) and Anne Dyer, starring Richard Thomas (THE WALTONS), Robert Vaughn (THE MAN FROM U.N.C.LE., THE MAGNIFICENT 7), George Peppard (THE BLUE MAX, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, THE A-TEAM) and John Saxon (ENTER THE DRAGON, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, JOE KIDD).

Released in the wake of STAR WARS in 1980 amidst a slew of other imitators, BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS set itself apart from the other films with a charming and clever script that was equal parts STAR WARS and Akira Kurosawa’s SEVEN SAMURAI, sprinkled with THE MAGNIFICENT 7

In 1980, at age 26  James Horner , having written some additional music for Roger Corman’s UP FROM THE DEPTHS and following his first solo efforts on THE LADY IN RED and HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP, James Horner prepared to take on his first big film scoring assignment. With John Williams’ STAR WARS and Jerry Goldsmith’s STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE as his barometer, Horner set out to write a large scale symphonic score cut from the same cloth, in the grand symphonic tradition of the composers of the Golden Age. 

In addition to James Horner’s great orchestral score, BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS also benefited from sound design and additional music composed by Alan Howarth. Already acknowledged for his talents as a sound designer on films such as STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, GALAXINA and THE FINAL COUNTDOWN.
