The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake trailer looks fantastic
I missed the bootlegged trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo but now I've seen it I'm completely hooked by it, and while you'll recognise ninety percent of it if you've seen the original, including a flash of what might be one of the final scenes, the trailer is fantastically put together.
The music choice fits well, the cuts mirror the beat of the music which builds you up throughout, and the final drive up towards the mansion with the music playing works really well, as does that tagline, "the feel bad movie of Christmas".
David Fincher's version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo looks like it could be really strong, but at the same time there's so much that seems so similar. I wonder if, despite the fantastic direction and the superb casting of Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joley Richardson and Steven Berkoff, if the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Filmstalker review) was just too good to overshadow.
Regardless an excellently bootlegged version of the red band trailer has been revealed online, something that might actually be a clever piece of marketing if you consider that the lead character is something of a hacker, and this might be just up her street anyway.
One great thing about the film is that it doesn't seem to have attempted to tone down the story at all, but then would you have expected that from Fincher?
