TImer goes "ding", research allowed. If you recognize the actress it shouldn't be too hard.

Hint: on Blu-ray.

Well, it's Cat Stevens (or it sounds like "I think I see the Light") so I'm going to play the odds and guess Harold and Maude. It's a 58 yard field goal attempt, but on fourth down, what do I have to lose?

And now my false memory is whispering to me that the tune kicks in right as Harold is sparking up the blow torch to cut the roof off the Jag?

It's "morning after first sex" music. Harold is blowing soap bubbles, if I recall correctly.

Cat Stevens, "I Think I See the Light", album "Mona Bone Jakon".

I need to post the Chris Nolan LFE "Bwwwwwwwwaaaaaaannnnn. Bwaaaaaaaaaaannnnn. Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan." music and ask "Which Movie trailer produced in the past five years did NOT use this track.


Oh! It has a name! Zack Hemsey‘s “Mind Heist.”

I am not adverse to a little bloodletting and carnage in a movie but this one was way over the top.
Some of the wildest and amazing fight scenes I've ever seen. An American remake is in the works.

The fight scenes in this one were worth the price of admission, especially the one your pic is from. Amazing work.
