The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo eight minute trailer

FinchersDragonTattoo.jpgA full eight minutes worth of a trailer usually means a couple of things, too many reveals and not enough of a trailer, just a collection of sequences from a film or complete opening scenes, and while the latter isn't always that bad, it's not really a trailer.

However for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo David Fincher, or perhaps the marketing company and the studio, have decided to release a full eight minute, properly cut trailer, and it looks fantastic.

The effect of this trailer is that it builds up on aspects of the original film that I thought were weaker, for instance the family themselves, and here we spend a lot more time getting to know some of the characters and the intricacies of the plot.

It seems to be covering the areas of the original film that I thought were weaker and could have been explored more than they were. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the first The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Filmstalker review) and I thought it was a very strong thriller, but there's so much potential with David Fincher's version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and the direction it's heading in seems to be just right.

The eight minute trailer really does pull out the story and the characters much better than a three minute trailer, and there's plenty of time for an oversized montage of snippets from the film which don't seem to spoil anything, but combined with the music do a really good job of building the pace and ending on a high note.

I'm really looking forward to this film, and this trailer from somewhere on Apple Trailers, where I could not find exactly, through TrailerAddict is a fantastic draw for the film.
