'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' film will hit theaters on December 21, which means we're also just three weeks away from the follow-up of Trent Reznor's Oscar-winning 'The Social Network' score. The Nine Inch Nails frontman previously promised to unveil all the soundtrack information tomorrow, but a few key details have emerged. Like, Reznor's score is roughly three hours long, which is longer than the film itself (two hours and 40 minutes runtime, says Rotten Tomatoes) and more than the two hours he already had recorded in January 2010. In fact, Trent and his collaborator Atticus Ross created so much music for the film, they needed six records for the score's upcoming vinyl release. You could probably read Stieg Larsson's entire "Millennium" trilogy in less time than it will take to listen to Reznor's 'Dragon Tattoo' score.
If all three hours are as good as this preview, then Reznor has another Oscar in his future. It's unclear whether Reznor and Karen O's awesome cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song," which featured prominently in the first 'Dragon Tattoo' trailer, is included on the soundtrack, but a cover of Bryan Ferry's "Is Your Love Strong Enough?" will definitely make the cut. How to Destroy Angels, Reznor's side project with wife Mariqueen, were asked by director David Fincher to provide a version of the 1986 song that first appeared on the 'Legend' soundtrack. (Yeah, the Tom Cruise movie where Tim Curry incredibly portrays Satan.)
Here's Ferry's original music video for the song, which features Pink Floyd's David Gilmour on guitar:
