NINE INCH NAILS IN THE TEASER TRAILER FOR THE AVENGERS? SMART SMART SMART.
The people who make movie trailers are some of the smartest filmmakers in Hollywood, so they figured out a long time ago that using Nine Inch Nails’s oh-so-very cinematic music to sell your action movie is a way smart move, even if Trent Reznor isn’t actually scoring your film (see: 300). And when (ahem) assembling the new teaser for Marvel’s highly anticipated The Avengers, one of those smarties was like “Oh hey, Nine Inch Nails totally have a song about being, like, unified and stuff, and we should use that!” And that smarty was right, because it works, and it makes the movie look that much more awesome… even if there’s another superhero movie coming out next summer which about which I am way more excited.
The Avengers is in theaters May 4, 2012. Nine Inch Nails’ The Fragile has been out for, like, over ten years, dummy.
