Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are going for another Academy Award with their soundtrack to David Fincher's Hollywood remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which opens in theatres on December 21.
The soundtrack is set for release on December 9th in a digital form (you can get a six-song sampler for the price of your email address here). But as all good NIN fans know, Trent Reznor has been a pioneer in the tiered pricing model for physical releases.

CD ($14.00): Digipak. The full soundtrack on three CDs plus digital version (as above) delivered on December 9.

Wanna bet that the deluxe edition will sell out?
