MARKETING CATEGORY – MOVIE MUSIC/SOUNDTRACK

Music plays a big part when marketing a movie and can deliver a deeper experience when audiences watch the film. We identified the music from this movie as an important part of the movie’s long-term success. Here’s a sampling of the songs from the Point Break soundtrack.
