The official site for David Fincher’s upcoming The Social Network has been launched by Columbia Pictures, unveiling a series of 46 stills and promotional images, and more excitingly, a track from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s score for the movie.
The layout is pretty snazzy and looks cool; you can check out trailers and such in addition to the images. I’ve embedded just a few of the more interesting pictures below, but you can see the full collection (and in full size) if you click on over to thesocialnetwork-movie.com.
Seems like Rooney Mara, who’ll be starring as the lead in Fincher’s remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, had the longest photo shoot…
I hate when flash sites prevent you being able to (easily) save their images, but /Film have kindly uploaded the whole lot of pictures in full rightclickandsaveas form.
But much more interesting than all of this is the official site’s first glimpse-for-your-ears of The Social Network‘s score. The music playing in the background is indeed a piece from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s composition, and sounds really great. It’s called Hand Covers Bruise (No Piano), and is a dark, disjointed, sort-of ambient piece that somehow reminds me of the music from the loading screens in Mass Effect 2 (an odd reference, I know). Also 37 Ghosts from the Nine Inch Nails album Ghosts I-IV. It seems to suggest the film will have an incredibly foreboding atmosphere – if you’re a fan of Reznor’s instrumental work, you’ll probably love it like I do (not to say you won’t love it if you’re not). I’m hugely looking forward to the soundtrack as well as the inevitable version of Hand Covers Bruise with piano… You can stream and download the track at the tumblr blog The Silence of Screaming.
Sure, the trailers look pretty good, but I’m not yet convinced that The Social Network will be amazing. What will separate it from other such dramas? Saying that, I’d be very happy for David Fincher to prove me wrong. Regardless of the film itself though, I will definitely be picking up the score.
