Social Network Gets Trailer 2, Trent Reznor Music

Yes, there really is going to be a Facebook movie. It was fast-tracked by Kevin Spacey and now has the directorial talents of David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) behind it. The screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin (of West Wing, A Few Good Men) and Jesse Eisenberg is playing Mark Zuckerberg. From a pedigree perspective, it looks solid. Now the talent behind the movie is getting even stronger from an unlikely man – Trent Reznor.

The brain behind NIN wrote this on his blog:

I was planning on taking some time off after the continual waves of touring that ended last fall and spend this year experimenting around with what would become How To Destroy Angels and some new NIN. Well, that plan didn't work out so well. David Fincher started inquiring about my interest in scoring his upcoming film, The Social Network. Yeah, the movie about the founding of Facebook. I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on.

Months later, I'm happy to tell you we're nearing the completion of this and I couldn't be happier with how it's turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable.

As Atticus and I near the end of the scoring process, we're looking forward to the next phase - distilling the large amount of music we've written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens Oct 1 in the US with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that.

Speaking of the film... it's really fucking good. And dark!

The new trailer above is just the second one released, and it builds upon the first one released last month. (Note: Sony's been going around on YouTube ordering takedowns of the new trailer, so we'll try to keep an eye on getting the working ones embedded here)

    He makes awesome soundtrack as well. I have the Crow, Natural Born Killers, and Lost Highway Soundtrack. They are all very solid soundtracks. I am just wondering how the Social Network Soundtrack will sound like!!!

    From what I've read of the script, the film should turn out to be quite good. It made the Hollywood Black List in 2009, and Aaron Sorkin is known for writing great films (A Few Good Men, Charlie Wilson's War, The American President etc).

    I'm pretty sure that a movie about the founding of facebook is one of the signs of the Apocalypse. And up goes the Rapture Index.
