THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO News; 8-Minute Trailer Online, Listen to a 35-Minute Sampler from the 3-Hour Soundtrack

     December 2, 2011

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross earned Oscars for their The Social Network score.  They reunited for David Fincher‘s new film, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and the duo have outdone themselves.  Reznor announced on his website that he and Ross have created “a sprawling three-hour opus”, and if you want to pre-order it, you’ve got some options.  There’s the old-fashioned digital download for $12, the higher quality Apple Lossless or FLAC download for $14, the 3-disc CD for $14, or you can go nuts with a $300 limited edition on the box set.

Hit the jump to find out what’s included on the $300 edition.  After the jump, you’ll also find the 8-minute trailer that debuted to select audiences earlier this fall.  Finally, do you remember that awesome cover of “Immigrant Song” that played with the movie’s teaser trailer?  It’s on the soundtrack, and you can download it right now from iTunes The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opens December 21st.

First up, here’s the 8-minute trailer via iTunes.  I haven’t watched it because I don’t want to sit through the movie having already seen eight minutes worth of footage.  But for everyone else, you can watch it below:

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.
