Well, hello David. It's nice to have you back and feeling surly again. And to everyone out there who ever questioned the value of David Fincher tackling Stieg Larsson's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo so soon after the hugely successful Swedish take on the material, I do believe the director has just replied with a hearty "Fuck off, I'll do whatever I like."
The US trailer for Fincher's latest is due online this week but viewers in Europe have been getting an eyeful of late with a hard edged red-band version of the trailer screening in theaters there. I'd assume that's going to turn up officially sometime shortly after the US version has hit screens but someone didn't want to wait that long.
Yes, it's a cam job - which we normally don't run here - but with the official version coming at some point yet to be determined and this looking so bloody good, we're running with it. Fincher, frankly, hasn't been this angry on screen for a very long time and it looks good on him. And I think this will put to rest many concerns about Rooney Mara's suitability for the role made famous by Noomi Rapace.
And, oh yes, the music. Yeah, that's a Led Zeppelin cover. By Trent Reznor. With Karen O singing. Can we just go ahead and make that a permanent band, please?
