October 3rd seems so close and yet so far away. Gone Girl is hands down my most anticipated film of the rest of the year, not because of the story or source material, but because David Fincher is one of the few truly uncompromising filmmakers we have left. When the film hits theaters, we’ll know that this is Fincher’s film through and through, and he seems to have a lot to say about relationships and our inherent narcissistic nature in the telling of this story. Another reason to be excited about Gone Girl is the score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The duo’s work on The Social Network is one of the vital pieces that makes that movie a masterpiece, and while their Girl with the Dragon Tattoo score was a bit too similar-sounding to Social Network for my taste, I’m incredibly curious to see what they’ve come up with for Gone Girl. And I’m in luck, because the very first Gone Girl soundtrack clip has been released online, and it teases a very different—yet still haunting—kind of score. Is that a copy machine I hear?
Take a listen to the first Gone Girl soundtrack clip from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross after the jump, along with some new images from the film. Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy, Missi Pyle, Casey Wilson, Emily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris, Gone Girl will premiere at the New York Film Festival and opens in theaters on October 3rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for Gone Girl:
GONE GIRL – directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn – unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?
