Soundtrack Smackdown: New Moon Vs. Fantastic Mr. Fox


The tracklists for two of the fall’s most anticipated films were both announced today: New Moon (which is already selling out theaters two months ahead of time) and Wes Anderson’s foray into animation, Fantastic Mr. Fox. While we’ve previously reported on Twilight author Stephenie Meyer’s unlikely taste in indie rock, we have to admit that we’re impressed by the talent assembled by the film’s music director. On the flip side, we’ve bought every soundtrack for every Anderson film to date. He is the master of the classic rock film cue.

So which album do you think looks better? Or this is a case of apples and oranges? Take a peep at the listings below and weigh in with a comment.

* Music Composed, Conducted, and Produced by Alexandre Desplat
