The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – December 21, 2011
Starring: Daniel Craig, Stellan Sarsgaard, Rooney Mara, Embeth Davidtz, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer
Written by: Steven Zaillan (Schindler’s List, Gang’s of New York)
Directed by: David Fincher
Adapted from the novel by: Stieg Larsson
My thoughts: First of all, the original Swedish film was completely wonderful. As much faith as I have in David Fincher, I think it will be hard to top the first version as well as Noomi Rapace’s portrayal of Lisbeth Salander. However, based on this cam version of the red band trailer, everyone looks great. Daniel Craig looks like he’s bringin’ it, I love Stellan Sarsgaard, and Rooney Mara…well, I guess only time will tell. Plus, Fincher’s cinematography is always gorgeous (um, hello FIGHT CLUB.)
Extra thought: The film is scored by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are scoring this. And the trailer features a remix/recreation of Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” featuring Karen O! It’s like the whole world wants me to self-combust!
