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.

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?

It’s less than a month until the feel bad movie of Christmas, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, hits cinema screens and we’ve just gotten our filthy little hands on some stills from the film. Shall we take a look? You’re darn tooting we shall!

I’m loving The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s marketing campaign. It feels like they’re trying to draw us into Lisbeth Salander’s/Mikael Blomkvist’s investigative minds. Today, Mouth-Taped-Shut (that production blog I’ve mentioned like, a million times) uploaded a YouTube video of the car crash footage, which is a critical element to The Girl‘s story. Check it out.

Okay, nothing special there, you may think… Continue reading
