I was in line for a movie at the Toronto Film Festival when I recieved a mysterious e-mail with the subject line “GDT”. At first I thought it had something to do with Guillermo Del Toro, but the inside of the email read:
“Rumor has it something unusual and interesting is playing before the advance screening of Straw Dogs this Wednesday night. David would love for you to check this out if you can make it.”
That was followed by the time and loction. As luck had it, I was already booked to return to Los Angeles Wednesday morning, so I was able to attend. The screening was for Rod Lurie’s remake of Straw Dogs — a Sony Screen Gems movie. After taking to my seat, I noticed that David Fincher was seated two rows in front of me, alongside a man with jet black hair — Trent Reznor. Why were they in attendance for this word of mouth screening of Straw Dogs? Would we be seeing a new trailer for Dragon Tattoo?

Earlier this month it was reported that Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor (the Academy Award-winning composer of The Social Network) would be composing the score for Timur Bekmambetov‘s adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and would also appear on screen in the movie as the vampire who kills Lincoln’s mother. A couple days later, Reznor responded to the rumors and confirmed that he was in fact in talks to score the film, but his role in the movie was not much more than a surprise cameo (ruined by the internet). Well it looks like that won’t even be happening anymore.

Last week it was rumored that Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor (the Academy Award-winning composer of The Social Network) was in talks to not only score Timur Bekmambetov‘s adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but also appear on screen. Today Reznor has responded to the reports on the NIN Forums. He also talks about his upcoming score for David Fincher‘s The Girl WIth the Dragon Tattoo and the new How To Destroy Angels record.

When it was announced that Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor would be scoring David Fincher’s The Social Network, it was considered a highly unlikely choice. Over a year later, Oscar in hand, Reznor’s next film seems like a much more logical fit. While he and partner Atticus Ross are currently scoring Fincher’s follow-up, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Badass Digest reports that Reznor will follow that up by not only scoring, but acting in, Timur Bekmambetov‘s adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Read who he’ll be playing and more after the jump. Read More »
What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film.

I’m not a fan of many things that re-purpose Bill Watterson‘s endlessly wonderful comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. The comic is just too pure and beautiful to mess with. But I can’t ignore the entertainment value of the theory that says Fight Club is really about a grown Calvin, with Tyler Durden standing in as the adult version of Hobbes. (And those who don’t like this idea at all could always apply one line from the movie: “I wanted to destroy something beautiful.”)
Now, as a way to illustrate the old theory, someone has cut original panels from the strip to the soundtrack of the Fight Club trailer. It works quite well. See that after the break, along with a minor note about the long-rumored Fight Club musical. Read More »
Briefly: Not a lot of info right now, but during a New York Times livestream interview with Trent Reznor, the musician revealed that he is scoring David Fincher‘s version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and has been working on the film for about six weeks. He said to expect something different from his score for The Social Network, though things might change in the year before the film opens.
Right now there isn’t an archived version of the stream, but as soon as something is available we’ll update with more info. (At this point I can’t say with certainty whether this is again being written with Atticus Ross, with whom he worked on The Social Network, or not.) Big thanks to Breezy for the heads up on the interview.
(UPDATE: A recap on AntiQuiet confirms that Atticus Ross is working on the score — great news — and that Mr. Reznor described it as “focusing mostly on performances and an organic feel – more specifically, ‘nothing would be programmed’ and we’ll get to hear ‘his limited skills at stringed instruments.’”) Great news all around, and here’s hoping that the collaboration between Fincher, Reznor and Ross turns out more great work.
