Are You Guys Gonna See The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?

Ooh so intense.

While I recover from the visual assault that was the trailer, I’m also going to add it to the growing list of ‘movies I’m totally not going to see.’

The books were super, and Rooney Mara was pretty good as Nancy in the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, but her role as Lisbeth Salander is actually pretty miscast, despite my initial excitement over her role in the Americanized version of the movie.

The only likable part of the trailer? The almost-OK Led Zeppelin cover. Then again, unless your band totally sucks, going with Led Zeppelin is ALWAYS a good idea and will ALMOST always redeem whatever damage you’ve done.

What do you guys think – is this movie going to rock or blow?

  • Even the original series took a steady decline in quality after its first entry. I really don’t like the idea of “americanizing” foreign films though. I will say that Let Me In was not entirely horrible so this hopefully this film might be another in line of acceptable if not adequate remakes of foreign films because I really did enjoy the original. Filling lisbeth’s shoes are going to be damn near impossible though.

  • The books were tedious at best but the original foreign movies were quite good. I’m not optimistic about this relaunch.

  • I totally loved the Swedish films but I’m not all too impressed by this trailer… I agree with Dillon, not all films should be americanized!
