I have to say that the fact that this movie is coming out baffles me a little. I know that we tend to re-make movies and bring them here. That list is long and varied, but usually they don’t have uber-popular international record-breakers like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo/Millennium Trilogy attached. A lot of people who have read these books have probably had the opportunity to see the movie if they wanted to see it. I’ve seen it. But now I will go again? And why? To compare versions? The movies have received lots of acclaim, Lisbeth Salander has a fairly recognizable face, and they have all been out pretty recently.
I can only guess maybe this is for the people who have heard of the books but have not seen them, like this type of movie in general, aren’t into sub-titles? Comparative literature majors? Thoughts? Have you seen the older movies? Will you see this new one?
Also, days before Christmas is interesting timing for a big movie with this subject matter. The books were pretty dark and so was the movie. I can’t imagine having Christmas breakfast or dinner and following it up with this film.
