A new video has been released on Mouth Taped Shut, a viral marketing Tumblr website for director David Fincher‘s remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, that shows some amazing metal posters being made for the movie. Even better, the almost four–minute video offers up a sample of Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross‘s score for the film.
Reznor and Ross are coming off of an Academy Award–winning collaboration on the score for Fincher’s last film, Best Picture nominee The Social Network. And as for where you can get one of these posters, that’s not yet known. But every movie fan is going to want one, that much is for sure.

The MP3 version of the album, which contains 19 tracks, is available exclusively through Amazon until its wide release on September 30. The CD version is available for pre-order now for $7.99 and will be released on October 15.
Usually the MP3 deal lasts for 24 hours, but this one might be extended for 48 hours. If you’re a fan of Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, you should definitely get in on this deal right away.
Make no mistake about it: when we first heard that Fight Club, Se7en, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button director David Fincher was making a movie about Facebook of all things, we scratched our heads. At that time, however, many of us probably had visions of a live-action Tron-esq Facebook world with farm animals and Mafioso running about, upwards thumbs flying through the skies, and everyone poking the ever-loving hell out of each other 24-hours a day.
That of course is not the case at all. Fincher’s movie, called The Social Network, is actually based on the Ben Mizrich book, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal. And to add to what’s sure to be a compelling tale, it’s now been officially announced that Trent Reznor, frontman of industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, will be handling the film’s musical score along with composer Atticus Ross.

The LA Times geekblog, Hero Complex, broke the news early Wednesday morning that Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor is in talks with HBO to produce a two-season maxi-series based on the band’s concept album, Year Zero.
Reznor told Hero Complex during a backstage interview this week that, “It’s the most exciting thing on the horizon, it’s the thing that when I wake up in the morning it makes me say, ‘God it would be cool if that happened.”
But will it happen?
“This is my grand ambition. Will it happen? I don’t know. It was fun sitting and telling [the HBO] guys and watching them shake their head and having writers on board and producers that are in to it. It’s been a fun thing.”
