News: The Girl Who Played With Fire Will Not Be Out In 2013, Fincher May Still Direct

Sony’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo didn’t exactly set cinema screens alight with its box office performance earlier in the year. It did enough, $232 million in global box office, to have people working on the follow-up The Girl Who Played With Fire (writer Steven Zallian is busy typing away) but Sony seem in no rush to get it made.

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. Continue reading

I have to admit, I really didn’t think we’d be writing all that much about The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo after the release of the US version. I mean, it’s great (see my review here), but everything has been pretty much covered, hasn’t it? Apparently not. Nope, you see, DC want in on Stieg Larsson’s moneyspinner too, and their adult off-shoot, Vertigo, is producing a graphic novel for each the Millennium trilogy. Wanna see the cover? Continue reading

A simple question hangs over David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – What’s the point? After the critically lauded adaption of Stieg Larsson’s multi-million selling Millennium trilogy, do we need another version of the franchise? Is the investment of a major Hollywood studio and the level of talent that brings enough to justify its existence?

So we find our way to the third movie in my Cult Film Corner hacking special – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Mikael Blomkvist (Mikael Nyqvist) is a brilliant journalist for news magazine Millennium. Opening in court, where he is charged with libel after being set-up in his latest investigation into corporate corruption, Blomkvist is convicted of libel and sentenced to three months in prison. His reputation in tatters, he resigns from Millennium and wonders what to do with his career until he’s approached by the lawyer of the powerful Vanger Group.

There Blomkvist is told of Henrik’s niece, Harriet, and how she disappeared on one fateful day in 1966. Henrik believes that Harriet was murdered, and every year after her disappearance for his birthday he has received a pressed flower from a different place in the world, taunting him. Henrik asks Mikael to look into the investigation just one more time, to discover what happened to Harriet. Continue reading
