Get a look at how Dragon Tattoo posters are made, set to the score by Trent Reznor

Did you ever wonder how your movie posters were made? With lots of bad Photoshop, right? ZING! But bad jokes aside, most people probably don't think too much about how a poster goes from an artist's hard drive to your theater lobby. Lucky for us, we have David Fincher to share these secrets with us.

As part of the continuing "Mouth Taped Shut" viral campaign, Fincher and crew have posted a new video showing the printing process of the GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO poster. You know, the one with Rooney Mara's boobie? What's neat about this poster is that it's made out of metal and shaped like a razor blade.

But maybe the real interest here is the music playing in the background. Normally you'd get some generic atmosphere music playing in the background of a behind-the-scenes clip, but here we get about four new minutes of Trent Reznor's DRAGON TATTOO score. You learn about the printing process and hear some crazy, new music! It's like "Sesame Street" for adults! Check out the new clip below...

Very nice, but . . .

. . . this is NOT how "movie posters" are typically produced! This video is showing a very specialized process, using screen-printing on metal blanks, which are then computer-cut to shape. Make no mistake, these are going to be REALLY COOL (and probably expensive) "posters", most likely for sale as collector's items. And yeah, I'd kill to have one. But if JoBlo-ettes want to actually see how a typical poster is printed, they'll have to look elsewhere.

David Fincher and Trent Reznor = Best director/composer team-up since Spielberg and Williams.

I absolutely agree, both of their work lend themselves so well together. It's their ability to bring out the best in each others' contribution that makes their team-up so perfect!
