Gone Girl
We're tantalizingly close to the release of David Fincher's upcoming film, the adaptation of best-selling novel "Gone Girl," and the closer we get, the more unbearable the wait. Word has started to leak out from those who've seen it, some calling it one of the director's very best, and every clip or trailer makes it look more and more fascinating.

Musicians Turned Composers
Increasingly over the last two decades, musicians and bands have looked upon the film score and seen a rare opportunity to challenge themselves in a new medium, and also to gain a break from non-stop touring. The results have been an eclectic, unconventional bounty. Last month, Mica Levi of Micachu and the Shapes delivered an iconic three-note theme to Jonathan Glazer’s “Under The Skin” that rattled the senses, while Devonte Hynes (Lightspeed Champion, Blood Orange) struck a dreamy pop tone of high-school nostalgia with his score to Gia Coppola’s directorial debut, “Palo Alto.”

Gone Girl Ben Affleck
Last month, we got the first trailer for David Fincher's fall thriller "Gone Girl," and as expected, it really got people talking. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn — who has since clarified her remarks about how drastically the ending has been changed or not from her book — it stars Ben Affleck as a man who becomes the prime suspect when his wife, played by Rosamund Pike, goes missing. But as always, the truth is never quite what it seems. And while the trailer was clever — archly powered by a cover of Elvis Costello's "She" by Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs — it kept the tone of the movie just out of reach. Well, one person who has seen it is Trent Reznor. And he has some interesting things to say.

While David Lynch might be concerned that the current cinematic climate doesn't have room from distinctive filmmakers like him, he's found other creative outlets for his work behind the camera. He's directed ads for his own coffee line, webcasts, mini-documentaries for The Killers and a bumper for the Viennale festival. And now comes a music video for none other than Nine Inch Nails.

We haven't paid attention to the Grammys in years, mostly because it's irrelevant, these days we're barely familiar with half the nominees, and the show is usually pure tedium. (Don't even get us started on that Beach Boys tribute thing last year.) But for movie buffs looking to maintain their awards season high, yesterday's announcement of Grammy nominees did bring with it some films that are looking to collect gold from their pals in the music biz.

It was just earlier today that we were talking about how the line between movies and videogames is getting more and more blurred, and then there's this bit of news. Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, who has already won acclaim for teaming with Atticus Ross to score the founding of Facebook in "The Social Network" and a vast murder mystery in "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," is lending his skills to the video game world.

While Trent Reznor now has an Oscar under his belt thanks to his score for "The Social Network," and looks like he'll be heading back to the Kodak Theater in February for his re-team with David Fincher on "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," had things gone differently, the Nine Inch Nails frontman would have made his film composing debut more than a decade ago.
