Trailer looks great but it's like a youtube video of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" in 2 minutes.

If you know the story, the trailer is very reassuring. Fincher has captured the look, the atmosphere of the book. The casting seems spot on. If you don't know the story... well, you do now.

It hasn't really gotten me excited for this film. My first thought was the serial killer trappings of Se7en with the visuals of The Social Network

Hit the nail on the head. Looks the perfect adaptation of the book to me...Armansky is a lot younger than I imagined him though :)

Swedish version was...incredibly disappointing. It missed out far too much of the investigative mystery stuff...this looks to have it back in and it looks immense. Really hoping they include all the missed out stuff with Cecilia that was gone from the first film though...judging by wigged up London Salander theyve at least got that bit of the story a lot more involved.

Cant wait.

The original was my favourite film last year so I was really looking forward to this. Unfortunately it's now looking more and more like a remake than a fresh interpretation of the novel.

... "I want you to help me find a killer of women" as if this could have happened:
"I want you to help me find a killer."
"Oh, well since they probably are male and probably killed males I have exactly no interest and there is nothing you can now say to possibly change my mind."
"Dammit."

While im sure Fincher will do a decent job with this, i cant help but worry about Craig in the lead. He just doesnt seem to match the tone of the setting, or the personality of the character. Maybe anyone who hasnt read the book wont have an issue with this, but surely someone like Stellan Skarsgard wouldve been a better Blomkvist?

Yea, well done for missing the point

'Minor spoilers'
The whole book is about male violence against women. The fact that there is a serial killer targeting women is a major plot point


Trailer had a bit too much exposition in it, but still looking forward to the film

@Sam shepherd, the killer of women comment is an integral part of how he gets her to help him. So it is literally, "men killing men? Who cares."

For anyone who has seen the original or read the book you'll have spotted scenes from pretty much the entire book, and as much as I would love to say I'm impressed by what he's done, its more or less exactly the same movie as the original. Pity.

ofcourse this film will be impecably produced and great to look at and enjoy as are all fincher's outings but i can't see past thinking this is a complete waste of his talent. The originals are highly entertaining and brilliantly acted. This can only be an attempt to get on the band wagon of a great story/book and make some more cash. I am not against remakes if they are vastly improved but this is rarely the case.

They've gone on record as saying the swedish version was boiled down plot wise, and this one's going to be more detailed; but I'm not seeing anything really in this trailer, that I didn't see in the original movie.
I've got faith in Fincher. And anything with Julian Sands has got to have some good perversity to it - He's up there with Kevin Bacon and James Spader.

Couldn't agree more! He says his Swedish name with a Swedish twang... and then carries on in his Bond gruff! Bonkers!

Most Faitful Adaptation Is Not Always The Best Film - 23/9/2011 8:16:23 AM

I've read the trilogy and own the Swedish Blu-rays and was excited to see what one of the best screenwriters and one of the most ambitious directors could make of this story... Not excited at all to be honest.

All of the Fincher fanboys keep talking about this alleged new ending and endlessly refer to Fincher's CV but there's nothing fresh thus far for me. Please forgive my pessimism but Rooney Mara just looks like she's doing her best Noomi Rapace impression. Not everyone likes the 2009 version but I find it hard to believe people who say that this trailer looks very different. The cinematography and Reznor/Ross' score will be sensational but I can't help but think that this is a missed opportunity. Yes, people who have no knowledge of the 2009 adaptations will be frothing at the mouth over this trailer but there is nothing artistically relevant with this new adaptation (which I can see thus far).

Dare I say this but I think I would have been more excited if they full on Americanised it and set the movie in Seattle. If Zaillian forfeited the socio-cultural context of Sweden and focused on interpreting and adapting the characters and the character dynamics for screen at least we would have something which looks fresh and exciting. Let's remember that Blade Runner is a great movie and is not the most faithful adaptation of a novel.

They seem to have developed some of the story lines from the original. There are a lot more flashbacks it seems, which seems a bit much considering the original didn't waste a scene. It just feels like there's too many ideas flying around, not sure how they're going to fit it all in unless the film is going to go LOTR and be three hours... I'll still watch it. But will pine for Noomi Rapace throughout.

Normally I'm not a fan of Hollywood re-makes but.. I read the book first and loved it, when I saw the Swedish film however I was really disappointed. It misses out huge chunks of the plot and the whole investigation is all but skipped over.
This trailer on it's own is probably closer to the book than the entire original film, I think it looks like this could be the film the original never was. I for one am quite excited about this.

i read the girl books before i saw the swedish versions of the films,and in your mind's eye you imagine the characters,noomi rapace and michael nyqvist captured the the characters brilliantly and the new blu-ray versions fill some of the parts that some may have thought detracted from the movie,i admire mr fincher's work but to better the original, he, mr craig and rooney mara will have to be at the top of their game i look forward to seeing it
