‘Tetsuo: The Bullet Man’ Trailer

IFC Midnight Films has released the movie trailer for Shinya Tsukamoto’s first English-language film Tetsuo: The Bullet Man. The movie stars Eric Bossick as a young man raising a family in Tokyo who “flies into a terrible rage” after suffering a major tragedy, and “soon discovers that the power of his emotion transforms him into a strange, metallic monster.” This is the third film in Tsukamoto’s cyberpunk film series. The movie premiered at the Venice Film Festival. The closing credits song, an original track titled “Theme for Tetsuo: The Bullet Man” was composed by Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor, who co-wrote the soundtrack for The Social Network) for the movie.

Trent Reznor may have disbanded the touring version of Nine Inch Nails, but he recently said the project is not dead. And now, just as his new band How to Destroy Angels prepares to release its first material, there is a new track that is being labeled as by Nine Inch Nails. Even better, it is the scratchy, unusual end credits music for Shinya Tsukamoto‘s film Tetsuo: The Bullet Man.

There’s something all too appropriate about this, as early Nine Inch Nails videos owed a lot to Tsukamoto’s film Tetsuo: The Iron Man. It always seemed as if he and Reznor should be collaborating all the time. Now they have, and you can hear Reznor’s full track, the appropriately titled ‘Theme for Tetsuo: The Bullet Man.’ [Some Kind of Awesome, via Vulture]

The full track is after the break, along with the full version of the music from the Inception trailer. Read More »
