The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Män som hatar kvinnor) trailer online
A trailer has arrived for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Män som hatar kvinnor), the film adaptation of the novel by Stieg Larsson (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com). The film version is directed by Niels Arden Oplev and adapted by Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg, and two more of Larsson's novels The Girl Who Played with Fire (Flickan som lekte med elden) and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Luftslottet som sprängdes) have also been adapted for film.
The trailer for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the first one we're set to see, is looking rather interesting, if somewhat fast and a little too fragmented. It could really have done with a slower cut. Still, you get a sense of the story and style from this and we'll undoubtedly see more trailers yet.
The film tells the story of, well let me give you the blurb:
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses, no evidence. Nearly forty years later a journalist by the name of Mikael Blomqvist gets an unusual assignment. He’s contacted by Harriet’s uncle, Henrik Vanger, who wants him to find out what really happened to Harriet. Mikael takes on the job, with help from mysterious biker girl and computer hacker Lisbeth Salander. This unlikely pair form a fragile bond as they dig into the sinister past of this family and find out just how far they're prepared to go to protect themselves - and each other.
Here's the trailer for you, see what you think. Since I know the book will be flying around as a gift or two this Xmas, I wonder what those of you who have read the novel think of the trailer?
