Now their third project with the filmmaker is getting ready to hit cinemas, Gone Girl, with Atticus saying it’s ‘the best thing we’ve done’.
I feel like the music fits beautifully with the picture but it also feels like our most experimental work,’ he said.
'The process was different partly because Trent and I were working on it in between his Nine Inch Nails tour and there was something magical about that.'
Starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in the lead roles, with Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry making up the supporting cast, Gone Girl follows the plight of a husband who becomes accused of his wife’s murder after she goes missing under suspicious circumstances.
As one of only a select handful of people in the world to have seen the finished cut of the film - and loved the best-selling novel it’s based on - Atticus said audiences are in for a treat.
'I like it when I go into a cinema and I'm not aware that I'm there, I'm totally involved in the film for two hours.
'With Gone Girl I sat down and suddenly the end credits were rolling, you just become so engrossed in it.
'From the very first time I saw it I thought it was a superb film.
'From day one it seems like David has had a clarity of vision before he even picked up the camera.'
