As promised by Trent Reznor, tons of details on his six LP, 39-track OST for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo have been revealed tonight, including a particularly special surprise. Composed with his cohort of the Oscar-winning The Social Network score Atticus Ross, we have a song to stream now, as well as the full tracklist, pre-order details, party announcement and much more. We’ll kick things off with a message from Trent Reznor himself on his official site:
For the last fourteen months Atticus and I have been hard at work on David Fincher’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”. We laughed, we cried, we lost our minds and in the process made some of the most beautiful and disturbing music of our careers. The result is a sprawling three-hour opus that I am happy to announce is available for pre-order right now for as low as $11.99. The full release will be available in one week – December 9th.
Update: One can now stream the eight-minute trailer below.

As much as we’d love to believe certain myths, no filmmaker has simply waltzed into making a masterpiece without cutting their teeth beforehand. Jaws may have been the first modern blockbuster, but Spielberg had already created a terrifying beast with the mechanical semi-truck in a made-for-television film, Duel. Truffaut’s The 400 Blows remains among the [...]
