David Fincher’s adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s worldwide best-seller “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” doesn’t hit until Xmas, however the marketing campaign has begun in earnest this week as a new red-band trailer has rolled out overseas.
That trailer hasn’t officially gone online yet, but an apparent description has hit the net from the IMDb boards (via /Film) which talks about it and how it compares with the previous much lower-budgeted Swedish-language movie/TV mini-series starring Noomi Rapace which was a $100 million global hit:
“Anyone that is worried about it not following the original film or the book can put that worry to bed. This looks to be as graphic if not more then the original. The trailer consists of a bunch of quick cuts of scenes from the movie. A lot of things from the original that we only see in still photos and hear characters talk about are actually filmed and shown.
Anyone worried about Rooney Mara not looking the part need not worry. There is a shot in the trailer of her topless pulling on a shirt much like Noomi Rapace does in the others. Mara looks the part for sure. Skinny as Rapace, only thing it looks like they may have done is toned down the punk look some, but not a lot. Not sure what else to say other then the trailer was very intense, it was set to Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant” song.”
Meanwhile Deadline reports that a domestic green-band trailer (likely a less explicit cut of this one) is set to arrive both in theatres and online next Thursday. The question now is how will we get out first proper look – in high-def late next week, or though some bootleg cam job sometime over this holiday weekend?
