After my previous post with the ‘red band’ trailer, which was a cam job, I can now safely show you the official trailer for David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake. Word is that Fincher and screenwriter Steven Zaillian have gone back to the original book and have based their film on that, rather than remaking the film scene for scene. Naturally, the two films will look alike. Anyway, in case you missed it, here is what I had to say in my previous post.
There have been complaints and doubts over the remake of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tatto, the first part of the Millenium Trilogy of books. However, due to the fact such a credible director has taken on the job, many fans were actually very excited (even though it is a little too soon). Step up Mr David Fincher and take a bow, for the trailer for his remake looks simply stunning.
See, remakes, I am usually against the blasted things, especially if created SO soon after the film its based on, and even more so when the original is so damned good. However, knowing the David Fincher was in charge, I was actually looking forward to this, big time! And even better, it is Fincher’s first film dealing with serial killer’s since the superb Zodiac so that in itself was a reason to be happy!
Yes, its fair to say my excitement has only been enhanced by the glorious trailer, and as a bonus, Rooney Mara seems to fill Noomi Rapace’s shoes quite well, something no one expected. The film also stars Daniel Craig and Stellan Skarsgard and is due for release here in the UK on Boxing Day! Not really the perfect film for the Christmas holidays, but who the Hell cares! Roll on Boxing Day!
