Trent ReznorThe Internet is good for quite a few things, not the least of which are adorable cat videos and spoiling the heck out of movies.

Last week's revelation that Oscar-winner Trent Reznor is both scoring and appearing in the upcoming "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" falls into the latter category. It turns out that the musician's role of Jack Barts, the vampire who slays Lincoln's mom, was meant to be a secret!

Reznor took to the Nine Inch Nails forum to address fans about, amongst other things, the new How To Destroy Angels record, his work on "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and, of course, his part in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."

Trent ReznorTrent Reznor may have not physically appeared in "The Social Network," but the Nine Inch Nails front man was all over the Oscar-winning film. Reznor, alongside Atticus Ross, composed the haunting score that earned both men an Academy Award for Best Original Score, leaving an indelible mark on one of the best films of 2010.

Now, according to Badass Digest, the rocker will take a bite out of another film project: the upcoming big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."

Entertainment Weekly confirms that in addition to composing the score for the flick, which is being directed by Timur Bekmambetov, Reznor is also reportedly in talks to make a cameo in the film as Jack Barts, the vampire who kills Honest Abe's mother, which in turn sends our 16th President on a vampire killing spree of his own.

Has there ever been a more perfect match for a movie soundtrack than Daft Punk and "Tron: Legacy"? Certainly there are few collaborative efforts that have received as much fan excitement as this one. Daft Punk is going to be involved in a good portion of the "Tron: Legacy" promotional efforts as the days tick down until the film's December 17 release, and that explains why the latest trailer is really a music video for one of the 24 songs on the "Tron: Legacy" soundtrack, "Derezzed."

The only new scene in the trailer is a shot of the Daft Punk duo, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, in their cameo as disc jockeys at a nightclub within the digital world. And those costumes that they're wearing aren't even costumes, but just the typical outfits that Daft Punk wear during all their performances. So, has there ever been a soundtrack and film so perfectly matched for one another? Check out a handful of our recent favorites after the jump! Read More...

I came across an incredibly exciting tweet last night from Trent Reznor, the man behind Nine Inch Nails. Since Twitter's Fail Whale is in full effect today, I can't actually extract said tweet from the Interwebs, but the topline info is as follows:

Reznor, along with collaborator Atticus Ross, is assembling the score for David Fincher's upcoming Facebook origin tale, "The Social Network," starring Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield, who was only just cast as the new Spider-Man. Actually, from the sound of Reznor's comments on his blog, he and Ross have been working on the score for some time. They've got a bunch of music created, so the plan now is to distill "the large amount of music we've written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens Oct 1 in the US with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that."

Works for me! I was already completely psyched for "The Social Network." This just makes everything even more awesome.
