I’ve noted on AATM before the difficulty I had plowing through Stieg Larsson’s worldwide bestseller, The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, but I stuck with the book and after the tedious first 250 or so pages the book exploded and I burned through the remaining pages with a feverish, hungry-for-more, pace. I’m currently almost done with the second book, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and am eagerly awaiting David Fincher’s movie version, due to hit theaters on December 21, 2011. The recently released, full-length trailer proudly displays Fincher’s amazing style, eye for detail and smells like a shoe-in for Oscar love come February 2012 (I’d bet Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress for Rooney Mara, as well as screenplay and original score, at the very least).
I’m not going to give any of the plot away, but if you’ve read the book, you know how amazing this movie will be. And please, folks, don’t give me the sing-song about how this movie has already been made (the foreign version starring Noomi Rapace) and Fincher should leave well-enough alone. I’ve watched the forgeign version and the subtitles put me to sleep. Sorry, but it’s true. At any rate, check out the trailer below and bask in what is going to be, without a doubt, an amazing movie.
