It’s been a couple days since we mined Mouth Taped Shut, the unofficial promo site for David Fincher‘s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but last night the site debuted a new poster for the film that is too nice not to pass up. I know — ‘nice’ — not really a word we use to describe anything related to this story. But when the last Dragon Tattoo poster was a sheet-metal creation cut to look like a razor blade, almost anything else is going to look ‘nice’ in comparison.

Check out the full image, which puts Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) right into the head of Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara) after the break. Read More »

We’re playing right into Sony’s game here, but the studio has been doing great work using the Mouth Taped Shut Tumblr to promote David Fincher‘s new version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. This time we’re looking at a video that shows a crew printing and cutting razor-blade shaped metal posters for the film. The clip is edited in a manner meant to convey unease, and just to make sure that feeling really sets in, about four minutes of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ score for the film is laid over it. Check out the video below. Read More »

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.

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.
