The female Belgian rock choir Scala & Kolacny Brothers are becoming Hollywood's "go to" act to deliver a powerful soundtrack for film and television.

Their chilling choral take on Metaillica's "Nothing Else Matters" has just been used in the final theatrical trailer for the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed film "Zero Dark Thirty."

The trailer premiered online over the weekend and will debut in theaters on Christmas Day. It can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/k7R2uVZYebE.

Scala, led by pianist/composer Steven Kolacny and his brother, conductor Stijn Kolacny, first gained prominence in the U.S. when their version of Radiohead's "Creep" was famously featured in the trailer for "The Social Network," which has now been viewed over 250 million times worldwide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB95KLmpLR4

Their signature choral interpretations were used to powerful effect earlier this year in trailers for the Showtime series Homeland ("Every Breath You Take," originally performed by The Police) and the horror film The Possession ("Engel," originally performed by Rammstein).
