We’ve already heard the incredible Trent Reznor & Karen O Zeppelin cover, but today we’ve got even more new sounds from the land of Reznor for you. Those following every development in David Fincher’s upcoming adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo are already aware of a secret blog named Mouth Taped Shut.
Mouth Taped Shut has been a underground blog documenting the ongoing post-production of Fincher’s film, and a few nights ago on his Twitter account, Trent Reznor discreetly teased a forthcoming musical development on the blog, notifying his fans to keep an eye on the constantly-updated website: “If you’re interested in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and what we’ve been up to I suggest you follow Mouth Taped Shut and pay attention throughout tomorrow. An opportunity may arise…”
And so it did. On September 15th, a lucky number of fans were offered tickets by the underground blog to an advance screening of a randomly picked soon-to-be-released film. The surprise of the night, however, came before the screening of the movie itself, as fans were met with an 8-minute extended trailer of Fincher’s new movie – and accordingly, 8 whole minutes of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ long-awaited score for the film. While the 8-minute trailer reportedly won’t be released to a public audience, a 3:45 minute trailer was released only minutes ago, which you can watch below:
The music on the extended trailer most certainly accommodates the ghastly atmosphere of the movie’s brutal subject matter and is very much unlike Reznor and Ross’ synthesizer-based score for The Social Network, as the two evidently utilize a fair share of stringed instruments and xylophones on this new endeavor. Judging by this and the duo’s previously released track for the highly anticipated Fincher film, Reznor and Ross may indeed have another year of red carpets and gold statues ahead of them.
