It took me a bit to get used to the Social Network score. While I really enjoyed the film, the synthesized score kind of felt at odds with the story being told. It almost served as a bit distracting where a more traditional score would have been expected. But I got over that really fast. I picked up the soundtrack, and it’s still a part of a lot of the music I use to work to.
Composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross collaborated with David Fincher again in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and I’ve really taken a liking to the edgy flavor they’re bringing. Now, that collaboration is set to continue in David Fincher’s Mank, as revealed by Revolver Magazine.

The film in question follows Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewics, who is played by Gary Oldman. However, if you’re hoping for another weird synth score, you’d be disappointed.
“We’re not gonna be using the modular synthesizer on that one,” Reznor revealed to the outlet. “We think we’re gonna be period authentic, so it just creates a new set of challenges.”
The film is set in 1940, so yeah, no synth. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was the slightest bit disappointed, but I’m intrigued to hear what a score with real instruments from those two will bring. What do you think of the duo working with Fincher again? Let us know your thoughts down below!
