I don’t think it would be particularly controversial of me to say that the trailer for David Fincher’s forthcoming version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was one of the most intriguing advance looks we’ve had of a film in recent times, enhanced by a stunningly brutal cover of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Rezner and Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

And with the December release of the eagerly anticipated film just a couple of months away, a new snippet of the score composed by by Rezner and Atticus Ross, whose previous work for Fincher on The Social Network won them a Golden Globe for best original soundtrack and an Academy Award for best original score, has been revealed on a viral marketing site called Mouth-Taped-Shut.

While this three minutes 42 second clip doesn’t give too much away about what we can expect from the full soundtrack, what can be discerned is that it’s a suitably haunting, undeniably Fincher-esque sound that reinforces the bleak look of everything we’ve seen of the movie so far. Not only that, but it also gives us a glimpse of some incredible razor-shaped promotional images for the movie being made, which no doubt will become highly sought-after by fans.

If what you’ve heard whets your appetite, the good news is that the soundtrack album is out a month before the film in November (and let’s hope it’s got that version of Immigration Song on it, eh?).
