What’s That Song?… The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Trailer

The voice on this trailer belongs to Karen O, lead singer of the punk band [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Yeah Yeah Yeahs[/lastfm]. **FUN FACT TIME– Karen has previously provided the music for the film Where The Wild Things Are, and was the long-time girlfriend of that film’s director Spike Jonze.

The song in the trailer was recorded by recent Academy Award-winner Trent Reznor (y’know, the guy from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nine Inch Nails[/lastfm]), who has been tapped to do the score for Dragon Tattoo. **FUN FACT TIME #2– Reznor and Fincher previously collaborated on Fincher’s previous movie, The Social Network, and Reznor once popped up onscreen spoofing actor Skeet Ulrich in Scream 2. Also, The Social Network really should have won the Best Picture Oscar.

News that Reznor will again provide a score worthy of Fincher’s typically excellent films just adds to the promise of Dragon Tattoo. And speaking of The Social Network, Fincher’s latest teaser trailer follows a suspiciously similar formula from his previous film…

    I knew Reznor was involved in the song, and I’d heard the name Karen O, but didn’t realise it was the lead vocalist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I’m not particularly a fan of her group, but her performance in this song is great. Fincher cut the trailer perfectly with the beat of the song, it’s one of the best trailers I’ve seen this year. I just hope Reznor can provide a score that equals or even exceeds his previous work with Fincher.
