Trailer Fix: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I go to upstate NY for the weekend and the red band trailer for the feel bad movie of Christmas – David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo leaks on the internet. The fast-paced, quick cuts of scenes from the movie set to Trent Reznor and Karen O’s cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” give us a real taste of what Rooney Mara brings to the role of Lisbeth Salander. So far, the movie looks worthwhile and change the the many doubters’ minds.

Update: I suspected the leaked trailer may be removed and it was. Here is the official trailer minus the nudity and blood. (It is still awesome.)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As someone who is not crazy about the books, I can get behind a new Hollywood movie adaptation. Considering how often books like Jane Eyre and every Jane Austen novel ever are re-adapted, we should expect a series as popular as Stieg Larsson’s to be re-imagined over and over again.

I’m eager to see what David Fincher will bring to series. If successful, the film’s depend completely on him to make this a memorable trilogy. More exciting is how Rooney Mara morphs from the high class vibe she consistently gives off into Lisbeth Salander, a character who is arguably on of the most iconic to come out of literature in quite some time.

So what are your thoughts on the teaser trailer and this adaptation of The Girl with Dragon Tattoo in general? Are you excited for the Stieg Larsson books to get a Finchian (yes, it is a verb now) touch?
