With less than a month to go before David Fincher’s latest film, Gone Girl, hits theaters nationwide, Trent Reznor has unveiled a preview of the film’s corresponding soundtrack. Listen to it now at Nine Inch Nails’ website.
Update: The track is titled “The Way He Looks At Me”. If NIN’s website isn’t loading, you can listen to it here.
Gone Girl marks the third collaboration between Reznor and Fincher, who previously teamed on 2010’s The Social Network and 2011’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The former earned Reznor and collaborator Atticus Ross an Oscar for Best Original Score, while the latter was nominated for Best Original Score at the Golden Globes.
Fincher’s latest film, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 thriller, stars Ben Affleck as the primary suspect in the murder investigation of his wife (played by Rosamund Pike). For the soundtrack, Reznor said Fincher asked him to “think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors. The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel.”
Gone Girl is set to hit theaters on October 3rd. Presumably, the soundtrack will be released around the same time. Below, watch the film’s trailer.
