It has already become the fastest movie musical to reach $100 million at the U.S. box office and is now the highest grossing film of 2008 in the U.K., Austria, Greece, Hungary, Norway and Sweden. Within the next two weeks, the Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan-led musical romantic comedy will become the most successful film Universal has ever released in the U.K. The film still has more than 35 territories in which to open.

The music of the film has proved as much a draw as the film itself and brought resurgence to the world's favorite ABBA songs.

About "MAMMA MIA!"

Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast in the feature-film adaptation of the beloved musical that has been seen by more than 30 million people in 170 cities and 8 languages around the world. Bringing the timeless lyrics and melodies of iconic super group ABBA to movie audiences, Summer 2008 is the season for "Mamma Mia!"

The three women who created the worldwide smash stage hit -- global producer Judy Craymer, writer Catherine Johnson and director Phyllida Lloyd -- repeat their roles in bringing this joyful, musical story to the big screen. The "Mamma Mia!" film is produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman.

Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper join Streep in this celebration of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads.

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the spirited daughter she's raised alone. For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends -- practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Christine Baranski) -- from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.

On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

MAMMA MIA! - THE MOVIE SOUNDTRACK

AND ORIGINAL CAST RECORDING RULE THE CHARTS!

July 31, 2008 – (New York, NY) – In an astounding week of sales across the board, both MAMMA MIA! The Movie Soundtrack and the MAMMA MIA! Original Cast Album are runaway smashes, ruling the Billboard, iTunes and Amazon charts. 

The Movie Soundtrack has garnered the #3 chart position on Billboard’s Top 200, achieved #1 status overall on the iTunes Music Store, and #1 on the Billboard Soundtrack chart, all in its third week of release. 

Additionally, the Soundtrack’s debut marked the highest charting week ever in history for an ABBA recording.  Eight years after its release, The Original Cast Recording also currently holds the #1 position on Billboard’s Broadway Chart.  The beloved musical has been seen by more than 30 million people in 170 cities and eight languages around the world.

Chris Roberts, President, Classics and Jazz International/Chairman, Decca Label Group, commented, “The success of the MAMMA MIA! Soundtrack and Cast Recording further solidify the power of the franchise, with its ever-growing popularity. The music continues to resonate with audiences of all ages, and these recordings have taken on a life of their own.  We are proud and excited to be part of this continued phenomenon.”

Mixed, mastered and produced by ABBA’s musical geniuses Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, the soundtrack is the ultimate souvenir from the hit film.  Andersson and Ulvaeus reunited in Stockholm with the musicians who played on the original ABBA songs to record the disc in February 2007. It was the first time the musicians had played the songs together since ABBA toured more than 25 years ago.  Along with producing the recording, Andersson also played keyboards. He commented, “We didn’t have to think about it - it was in the fingers.”

Both MAMMA MIA! The Movie Soundtrack and Original Cast Album are available now on Decca and Decca Broadway respectively.

THE MOVIE SOUNDTRACK

MAMMA MIA! THE MOVIE

CD TO BE RELEASED JULY 8 ON DECCA

ABBA HITS SUNG BY THE STAR-STUDDED HOLLYWOOD CAST

June 27, 2008 (New York, NY) -- Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast in the feature-film adaptation of the beloved musical that has been seen by more than 30 million people in 170 cities and eight languages around the world. Bringing the timeless lyrics and melodies of iconic super group ABBA to movie audiences, summer 2008 is the season for Mamma Mia! The star-studded soundtrack is the ultimate souvenir to the movie, set for release on Decca July 8.

The feature film adaptation of the global stage hit production brings the magic of ABBA's music to the silver screen. With rising star Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper, alongside Hollywood heavy-hitters Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth Stellan Skasgård, Julie Walters and Christine Baranski, the film features the stars' versions of 17 ABBA classics in this celebration of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads.

Mixed, mastered and produced by ABBA's musical geniuses Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, the soundtrack is a must-have collection of these pop gems.  Andersson and Ulvaeus reunited in Stockholm with the musicians who played on the original ABBA songs to record the disc in February 2007. It was the first time the musicians had played the songs together since ABBA toured more than 25 years ago.  Along with producing the recording, Andersson also played keyboards. He commented, "We didn't have to think about it - it was in the fingers."

The actors joined together for the first time to record their vocals in London in April, 2007, prior to the commencement of principal photography, and continued recording later that summer on location while filming on the beautiful Greek islands. Whether it's Streep, Walters and Baranski making their mark on "Dancing Queen," Brosnan and Streep's upbeat rendition of "SOS," or the energetic song-and-dance numbers such as "Voulez-Vous," the Mamma Mia! soundtrack captures the essence of the originals, while still giving them new and dazzling treatments.

Inspired by the storytelling arcs of ABBA's songs from "Dancing Queen" to "Money, Money, Money" and "Take a Chance on Me," Mamma Mia! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.

Tracklisting as follows:

1. Honey, Honey (Amanda Seyfried, Ashley Lilley & Rachel McDowall)

2. Money, Money, Money (Meryl Streep, Julie Walters & Christine Baranski)

3. Mamma Mia (Meryl Streep)

4. Dancing Queen (Meryl Streep, Julie Walters & Christine Baranski)

9. The Name of the Game (Amanda Seyfried)

10. Voulez-Vous (Full cast, Philip Michael, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters & Stellan Skarsgård)

11. SOS (Pierce Brosnan & Meryl Streep)

12. Does Your Mother Know (Christine Baranski & Philip Michael)

14. The Winner Takes It All (Meryl Streep)

15. When All is Said and Done (Pierce Brosnan & Meryl Streep)

16. Take a Chance on Me (Julie Walters, Stellan Skarsgård, Colin Firth, Philip Michael & Christine Baranski)

17. I Have a Dream (Amanda Seyfried)

About Mamma Mia!

The three women who created the worldwide smash stage hit - global producer Judy Craymer, writer Catherine Johnson and director Phyllida Lloyd - repeat their roles in bringing this joyful, musical story to the big screen. The Mamma Mia! film is produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman.

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the spirited daughter she's raised alone. For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends - practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Christine Baranski) - rom her one-time backing band, Donna & the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.

On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

MAMMA MIA! THE MOVIE SOUNDTRACK Special Edition double CD cancelled

HMV.co.uk's listing for the two CD MAMMA MIA! THE MOVIE SOUNDTRACK Special Edition now lists the CD as "deleted". This is disappointing as it was widely anticipated that the second disc would include the remaining songs from the movie not included on the standard CD, possibly instrumental score versions of ABBA songs from the film, and possibly other content.

Perhaps it will be release later. When the film of the musical HAIRSPRAY opened in 2007, a single disc soundtrack CD was released by Universal Music. Several months later a two disc special edition was released with additional songs, demo recordings, karaoke tracks and interactive content. Perhaps the same strategy will be applied to MAMMA MIA!

UPDATE! the listing has now been completely removed.

Meryl Streep coming to Australia for Mamma Mia

Actors Meryl Streep (Donna), Pierce Brosnan (Sam) and Amanda Seyfried (Sophie) will be visiting Australia as part of a whistlestop tour of movie premieres. Following the world premiere in London, and events in Berlin and Stockholm, they will visit Sydney and then Melbourne for a gala premiere. It has been reported that "ABBA will reform" for the Stockholm premiere, though this seems highly unlikely. Apparently all four former ABBA members have been invited, but only Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson are confirmed. Read the story here.

MAMMA MIA! The Movie: World Exclusive trailer launch

Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast in the feature-film adaptation of the beloved musical that has been seen by more than 30 million people in 160 cities and 8 languages around the world.  Bringing the timeless lyrics and melodies of iconic super group ABBA to movie audiences, Summer 2008 is the season for Mamma Mia! 

Universal International are thrilled to announce that today the worldwide official trailer has launched on www.yahoo.co.uk - http://uk.movies.yahoo.com/

The three women who created the worldwide smash stage hit—global producer Judy Craymer, writer Catherine Johnson and director Phyllida Lloyd—repeat their roles in bringing this joyful, musical story to the big screen. 

Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper join Streep in this celebration of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads. 

Mamma Mia! Synopsis

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the spirited daughter she’s raised alone.  For Sophie’s wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends—practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Christine Baranski)—from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos.  But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own. 

On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna’s past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier.  Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities. 

Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA’s songs from “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.” to “Money, Money, Money” and “Take a Chance on Me,” Mamma Mia! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found.

EXCLUSIVE: First photos from 'Mamma Mia!'

For those who never got around to seeing Mamma Mia! when it hit the stage, or for those who are dying to see it again (I saw it twice, just so you know ...), the widely popular Broadway musical is now heading to the big screen -- and Cinematical has your exclusive first look at images from the film. Starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Julie Walters, Dominic Cooper, Amanda Seyfried and Christine Baranski, Mamma Mia! was written by Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida Lloyd (both of whom brought us the staged version). Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson serve as executive producers. Of course, and I shouldn't have to tell you this, the film also comes with more than a few awesome ABBA tunes. Here's a taste of what you're in store for (from the film's official synopsis):

An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried), the spirited daughter she's raised alone. For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends-practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Julie Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Christine Baranski)-from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own. On a quest to find the identity of her father to walk her down the aisle, she brings back three men from Donna's past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 chaotic, magical hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled on this lush island full of possibilities.

Inspired by the storytelling magic of ABBA's songs from "Dancing Queen" and "S.O.S." to "Money, Money, Money" and "Take a Chance on Me," Mamma Mia! is a celebration of mothers and daughters, old friends and new family found. Mamma Mia! will dance its way into theaters on July 18, 2008. Additionally, Moviefone will debut the first Mamma Mia! trailer tomorrow -- so watch for it!
