Haven't read the books or seen the Swedish versions, but David Fincher's vision has pushed both of these to the front of my queues. That's high praise.
Where Daniel Craig, and Christopher Plummer were good, Rooney Mara put herself on the map for completely succumbing to the role of Lisbeth Salander.
Oh, and if you didn't know: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are pretty awesome at scoring movies.
I got chills watching this trailer. This is going to give the Swedish made version a run for it's money. I still prefer Noomi Rapace playing Lisbeth, but Daniel Craig makes a great Mikael. Quiet, tough, understated acting. If you like this trailer you have to see the Swedish version first! (I never read the books, guess I should)
I am very unhappy that David Fincher felt he could "improve" upon the story by changing the tone of the characters and the ending of the book. This is why I hate when Hollywood takes over literature. For a great example of adaptation, view the Swedish films.
The Millenium trilogy by Stieg Larsson are definitely my favorite books. I was excited to see the films, and they were really good! But as usual the movie is never as good as the book.
And.. I am a little annoyed that they feel the need to do a new version of this (or any idea for a movie that they didn't come up with first) in America. Seriously, is it so bad to watch the original?
Hmm...looks like it is staying fairly true to the book even from the trailer.
For some reason trailer that I get looks like the original Swedish film.
This is the 2011 Fincher one:
I am so glad they make films for people who are not willing to read (even subtitles).
