While Atticus Ross is best known for his collaborations with Trent Reznor in Nine Inch Nails and of course on the soundtracks for "The Social Network" (which won them an Oscar) and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," he has ventured out on his own on more than one occassion. He has worked close with the Hughes Brothers, scoring their TV series "Touching Evil" (alongside his wife and brother, Claudia Sarne and Leopold Ross) as well as "The Book of Eli" and Albert's segment in "New York, I Love You." Ross also contributed to the excellent array of talent on the "Days of Grace" soundtrack. Well, he's once again striking out with a solo gig, and and it's one helluva blockbuster project.

The samurai genre (or 'chanbara' if we wanted to show off), is almost as old as cinema itself, with Japanese cinema featuring films focusing on the life of the samurai as far back as the silent era. There are a host of classics in the style, mostly thanks to the work of Akira Kurosawa, but as far as Hollywood is concerned, it doesn't count until you put a white guy in the lead.
