Varese Sarabande announced their limited edition release of THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX original score by Fernando Velázquez. The CD is part of Varese's Limited edition series and is limited to 1000 copies only. The movie has been also released as Video on demand today. Info from Varese Sarabande Records and tracklist follow:

"This score is exactly why we created our Limited Edition series of CDs, separate from the CD Club, which is for scores from the past.  THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX is an epic new score by Fernando Velázquez, best known for his scores from The Orphanage, Devil, The Impossible and Mama.   The Adventurer had to be released.  The film, on the other hand, has barely been released, so you probably have not heard of it, but if you like grand, sweeping symphonic adventure and good old fashioned mystery in your film music, this is a soundtrack for you! Ancient mysteries. Powerful evil. And a fearless hero’s quest through a fantastical realm of steam-powered wonders and sinister magic…
In THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX, seventeen-year-old Mariah Mundi’s life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Following a trail of clues to the darkly majestic Prince Regent Hotel, Mariah discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long-lost artifact that grants limitless wealth – but also devastating supernatural power. With the fate of his world, and his family at stake, Mariah will risk everything to unravel the Curse of the Midas Box!"
