Reviewing and Previewing the World of Film

Preview: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (american)

Pulse pounding is the only way to describe the trailer for the American adaptation of the worldwide phenomena that is “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” series by Stieg Larson. This American version of the novels will be directed by David Fincher (The Social Network, Fight Club) and will feature Daniel Craig(Casino Royale, Layer Cake) as Headman Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara(The Social Network) as the new embodiment of Lisbeth Salander. Trent Reznor ( who did the Social Network soundtrack) and Karen Oh (“Where the Wild Things Are” soundtrack) re-imagine Led Zeplin’s classic “Immigrant Song”  for the perfect heart pumping background music in the trailer. This will not be an independent movie by any stretch of the imagination considering the amount of talent that is in this movie, but I am extremely excited for this film. The Swedish version of the novels did a great job, yet I still felt a yearning for the more grittier and darker side that the novels did so well. And according to the actors, this film features a great amount of that dark content that really drove the message of the books home. The film comes out late December.
