As previously reported, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor did indeed score David Fincher‘s The Social Network. Working with The Book of Eli‘s Atticus Ross, we have the first proof of that score as Sony just launched the official site for The Social Network. /Film has gathered the 46 new photos from the site if you want to check them out.

Reznor wasn’t kidding when he said it was “dark.” The score is minimal and brooding. I can’t wait to see how it fits into the film. If you haven’t already seen, Peter Travers said it was “the movie of the year that also brilliantly defines the decade.” Scott Foundas also had an extremely positive first review.

Only a few hours ago I got my New York Film Festival press accreditation and I’ll be seeing the film early Friday morning on Sept. 24th. It opens wide Oct. 1st.

What do you think of the first piece of music from The Social Network?
