Welcome to Icarus II feat. Cillian Murphy | John Murphy

Our sun is dying. Mankind faces extinction. Seven years ago the Icarus project sent a mission to restart the sun, but that mission was lost before it reached the star. Sixteen months ago, I, Robert Capa, and a crew of seven left Earth frozen in a solar winter. Our payload: a stellar bomb with a mass equivalent to Manhattan Island. Our purpose: to create a star within a star.

Eight astronauts strapped to the back of a bomb. My bomb. Welcome to Icarus II.

This is the point where I argue that the collaborative score for Sunshine by John Murphy and Underworld is one of the best modern film scores to date.

They just had to use Murphy’s Adagio in D Minor, didn’t they? Of all the space-themed music, they chose this….wish they had used the original recording though, much better than the one in this.
