For David Fincher’s drama, The Social Network, Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor and composer Atticus Ross teamed up to deliver their first collaboration on a feature film score. Since then, they’ve reteamed with the filmmaker for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl, always delivering spectacular award worthy scores. But their next feature film collaboration will see them working with a different director this time.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (who last collaborated on Fisher Stevens’ climate change documentary Before the Flood) will be providing the score for Patriots Day, the Boston Marathon bombing drama directed by Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor helmer, which will again reteam the filmmaker with star Mark Wahlberg.

David Fincher has talked for many years about producing a Fight Club Musical on Broadway as a means to celebrate the film’s tenth anniversary. That 2009 date has come and gone, and still Fincher has continued to talk about the possibility. I’ve just assumed it was one of those dream projects that would never come into fruition. But the project seems to still be in active development, and with Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk doing press for the Fight Club 2 comic book series, we now have more details on the Fight Club Rock Opera.

For fans of David Fincher and/or Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl became a must-see the second it was announced. But for those still on the fence — or, alternately, for those who are so eager they just need something to tide them over until the movie actually opens — Fox has tons of new marketing material to share.
Among them are the first Gone Girl clip, four new Gone Girl TV spots, and the full streaming Gone Girl soundtrack. Bury yourself in Nick and Amy’s twisted world after the jump.

It was only a few years ago that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross began composing scores, but already they’ve come to feel like a staple of David Fincher‘s films. The dynamic duo are at it again this year with Gone Girl, and in keeping with the twisted feel of the movie the first track released from the Gone Girl soundtrack is eerie and kind of off-putting. In a good way.
Hit the jump for the Gone Girl soundtrack preview, plus a big gallery of new high-res pics from the thriller.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have provided two memorable scores for David Fincher‘s recent films: the Oscar-winning music for The Social Network, and the equally good if less-rewarded score for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The two musicians will contribute to Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl, too, as confirmed by Reznor today on Twitter:
That should up the anticipation for the new film a little bit. Gone Girl stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Carrie Coon, Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris and Emily Ratajkowski, and is set to open on October 3, 2014. We probably won’t have to wait that long to get a good taste of the score, and it’s nice to know that fall will bring a new score from the duo.
Over the years Trent Reznor has been the benificiary of some of the most memorable music videos created for a rock band. Nine Inch Nails came to the forefront of the ’90s rock scene thanks to great songwriting and a violently energetic stage presence, but having a video like the one Mark Romanek made for ‘Closer’ sure didn’t hurt. Reznor was willing to play with the video form, producing long efforts destined to get zero airplay. The ‘Happiness in Slavery’ video in which performance artist Bob Flanagan (see also the documentary Sick) is torn to pieces is one of the better horror shorts of the decade.
All of which is a long way of saying that Reznor and Nine Inch Nails are no strangers to working with exemplary directors. Reznor reformed the band over the past year, and recently released a new single. ‘Came Back Haunted’ is a more dance-ready track than much of his work, but it has a great lean sound and much of the signature attitude and atmosphere of classic Nine Inch Nails.
And now it has a video from David Lynch, which you can see below. Read More »
