News: The Girl With Dragon Tattoo DVD is AWESOME. Also Possible News On Sequels

Fincher has nearly always taken the same care with his DVD covers/artwork as he has with his films. His Fight Club brown paper package will always be a favourite of mine, as is the creepy letter cover to Zodiac. These things, I feel, add immeasurably to the film experience and I’m glad that Fincher dares to give attention to such things. So it delights me to see the design to the DVD for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The pirated DVD look with roughly-scrawled handwriting ties in perfectly with the spirit of the film and the character of Lisbeth Salander. Sadly, the Blu-Ray version doesn’t come with this artwork, but randomised shots from the film. What’s the betting on me getting some shots of Swedish countryside when all I want is Rooney Mara?

In other The Girl… news, MGM, who co-financed the film with Sony, announced the film made a ‘modest loss’. They have the option to push ahead with the sequels, which they are interested in doing, but they want ‘better economics’. Which in layman’s speak is ‘cheaper’. This makes it highly unlikely that David Fincher will be returning to the director’s chair.

Personally, I’m in two-minds over this possible outcome. I’ll happily go on record as saying that The Girl… sequels get progressively worse and more ridiculous as they go on, but I was hoping Fincher and screenwriter Steven Zallian staying on may have been able to sort them out and make them more compelling movie experiences. I’m not saying this won’t happen on a lesser budget with a different director, just I get the feeling less risks will be taken. On the other hand, though, this frees up Fincher do different and more interesting things which can only be a good thing. We’ll just have to wait and see for everything to be confirmed.

We British folk can get our hands on the DVD/Blu-Ray of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (which I review here) from the 23rd April.
