UPDATED! Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Uncensored Poster hits the net! Warning, it has boobs!

***UPDATE: Sony requested we remove the poster, which was for international use only, apparently. God forbid a piece of marketing get people talking, but it's their property and they made the call.

I guess I could have made the case that we have an international readership, but they seemed unhappy to have that poster seen by any US eyes. As Harry said when discussing it with him, that's not exactly the punk rock thing to do, but I can't complain too much. Their trailer is awesome, they got themselves a job to do, I just don't see what the downside is to an international poster getting some US love. Is it just the nudity? Has to be, right? Because we feature international art here all the time.

Oh well, at least we still have Pete's Dragon Tattoo to look at... ***


Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Boobs on a poster? Thanks, David Fincher!

Perviness aside, I love the marketing on this one. Stellar job, people. Oh, and I'm looking forward to the movie, too.

Click the pic to visit TrailerAddict, which is where I found the poster.


While we're on the subject of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I have to make a comment on this rather brilliant fan mix-em-up trailer... What do you get when you mix an old Disney favorite and a raunchy murder thriller? Why, Pete's Dragon Tattoo of course.


Pete's Dragon Tattoo from Jeff Yorkes on Vimeo.

It's amazing how well that fits. I guess when you cut a trailer to music you can place almost anything with a similar time over the footage and the cuts will still work.

I love that so much. Thank you Jeff Yorkes and thank you Film School Rejects for pointing it out.

    by Sardonic

    Bodes well that this certainly will NOT be a watered-down version, not that I was particularly concerned about that to begin with since Fincher is at the helm, but still. You never know with studios these days. I'm sure he worked up enough goodwill from Social Network that they're basically letting him do whatever the fuck he wants (with good reason).

    Don't see the point ...

    by reaper28

    I like the look of the poster, but it's a bit pointless since you can't really display it in a cinema unless it's "that" type of cinema ... I'd like to think that as Fincher is involved there's a specific reason behind it other than the marketing dept doing it to generate controversy, etc. But I doubt it ...

  • The first had the title across her boobs AND another little word in a foreign language across her nipple. The second international poster maintained the title text across her boob, but the word on her nipple was gone (but the nip was still hidden). This one just said "FUCK IT, we'll do it LIVE!" and voila. Thing of beauty. Remember Fincher talking about this poster months ago? And how he knew he'd never get away with it?

  • June 8, 2011, 2:03 a.m. CST

    Fincher made her pierce the nips for the role.

    This certainly shows how much power Fincher has now. His movies have never felt watered down, but the marketing for them was never actually able to show the R-rated nature of the movies. I don't recall any disturbing posters for Se7en containing a picture of an ultra-obese guy having eaten himself to death. Fight Club never had a poster displaying sport fucking or a single frame of porn. Most people didn't realize those movies were actually directed by a director with vision (and not controlled by Hollywood suits) until they discovered how great they are on DVD. Now everyone knows David Fincher can make a quality R-rated movie, and his fans will show up opening weekend for it. I'll admit I gave up part way through reading the first novel. The first one-hundred and some pages were barely about the main pair, which I found interesting whenever the novel focused on them. Instead, the chuck of the novel I read was devoted to backstory unrelated to the main pair, and the backstory was not keeping my attention. It's like if Jack Sparrow had been in 20 minutes of the first Pirates movie, and the other 120 minutes had been about the family affairs of the ancestors of Elizabeth Swan. I am still interested in Fincher's adaptation despite the novel not being for me.

    by MooseMalloy

  • Firstly, I know a lot of you like to suck on Fincher's knob but this is a generic story about some respectable, middle-aged asshole who turns out to be a serial killer. He's uncovered by some disgraced/jaded reporter and a chick that looks like she should be on the cover of Crackwhore Weekly. There seems to be a cult surrounding the character of Lisbeth Salander and it's purely based on the fact that she goes around dressed in black leather, riding a motorbike and is covered with tattoo's and piercing's like all of those sad and pathetic bastards around the world who think that making yourself look like a freak somehow makes you more of an individual when there are millions of fellow morons who think and look the exact same way. Take away the body modification shit and you have a very thin and very dull story that was already made just two years ago. It's fucking depressing that Fincher hasn't made a truly great film since Fight Club or a masterpiece since Se7en.

    The Swedish version was not good.

    by uberfreak

    There were so many "wait, what?" moments in there. I recall a review I read (post viewing) that said some important plot elements were missing in the movie that were in the novel. That point made sense to me. Despite being a story about justice for female rape victims, it was somewhat exploitive. SPOILER ALERT!!!!! If Lisbeth was forced to suck the dick of her parole officer in his office why didn't she just bite it off then sprint out? Think about it. She would of gotten away with it easy and the creep would have been jailed himself. Also, I didn't buy into the romance between her and the reporter/investigator. She was a hot goth chic and he was an old ugly dude.

    by tailhook

    I was a bit trepidatious about Rooney Mara.. but there are times when an actor or actress just goes.. "what the fuck" and just goes for something so far out of their range its ridiculous. This is literally unlike anything she's ever done before and everything I see screams she nailed that part right to the wall. I'm calling it now, she's going to be the one to beat come February at the Oscars. The movie itself will definately be in the running(esp given 10 movies get in), but it carries some significant liabilities given the material itself (dark, a remake of a very recent film, etc). Its the type of movie that gets Brokeback'd or even The Social Network'd at the Oscars when it comes to the big prize in favor of a movie with a broader range of appeal.

  • ... this seems oddly exploitative. I still think it will be good though. Fincher's not the kind of guy who'd sign up for an foreign remake gig just for the paycheck and if a story ever needed Hollywood-ising a bit it's this one.

  • June 8, 2011, 3:58 a.m. CST



    A couple of things.... (1) I must be one of about three people who haven't read the book, but I am under the impression that this is NOT a "sexy" story at all... so rather than applaud this poster for showing some kind of "more sophisticated", "European" approach, shouldn't we be calling it out for being the exact opposite - a trashy attempt to "sex up" an ad campaign in the most cynical, exploitative way? (2) And for those suggesting America is some kind of provincial backwater... again, when the reaction is "Oh boy, boobs!", how, exactly, is that demonstrating some sort of more sophisticated worldview? Sorry, not seeing it. And also not seeing why someone has to be a repressive prude to think that we aren't missing out on anything to live in a place where this poster wouldn't be right beside the poster for MR POPPERS PENGUINS when you take your eight year old daughter and her friends to the movies. It has nothing to do with prudishness - at all - it has to do with having some boundaries in public places so you can can make CHOICES. Overall, just saying ... using sex to sell ANYTHING is hardly unique, daring, or clever. And especially not any of those things when the product being pushed is decidedly and intentionally NOT "sexy". Shadow

    I spent 7 years of the last decade living in various locations across Europe. (France mostly, with a stint in Norway.) I went to the movies quite a bit and don't recall seeing any bare tits on any posters. I think some of you guys have a skewed perception.

  • If I spent 100 million on a movie with a girl in the lead role who can't act for fucking shit and Daniel Craig who has yet to prove that he's a box office draw outside of the Bond films. And I'll say it again, this is a REMAKE of a movie that only came out two years ago. I don't give a shit if you call it a re-adaptation of the book. It's fucking lazy and it lowers Fincher in my opinion. There a plenty of great books out there that have never been made into movies and to do another version of this story is a fucking waste.

I for one can't wait for this, even Fincher's mediocre flicks (The Game, Button & Panic Room) are better than 90% os the shit the dream factories churn out year after year. Anybody who doesn't look forward to his flicks and go back to jerking off to Vin, Paul and all the shiny cars in Fast Five...

    America "repressed"? Thanks to the Internet huge swaths of America have access to any kind of sexual or violent content imaginable, 24/7. Lots of folks have cable and can watch almost any kind of programming they want, whenever they want, where ever they want. 'Cage fightings has been mainstreamed to the point that it was on TV in the dining room of a family 'sports bar' just the other night (nothing like watching a bloodied fighter get his face pounded while he's down to enhance the dinner experience). In short, you can read, see, or listen to literally anything you want to, anytime you want to. To the extent that there are any restrictions - and there aren't many- it is because a few folks think that maybe, just maybe, the 'public square' should be fairly neutral space so you can CHOOSE what to expose your kids and family to. If you think that modest concession is repressive, I will just note, respectfully, that we have very different ideas on what qualifies as 'repression'.

  • --vastly improves upon it. Do I care whether he "gets" the material? No. It's the work of a glorified hack. If Fincher "misinterprets" it while improving it with his own take, so be it. Fincher has made some outright classics, and he made "the Facebook movie" into one of the best, if not THE best, American films of the past decade. He has earned my trust. Thus spake CHOPPAH-thustra.

Remember nipple-gate at the Super Bowl? We're not talking individuals, but the country as a whole is way against nudity. We are the prudish country in that regard. Other countries have nudity, allow the word fuck on TV, etc... after a certain time on any channels. Here, after a certain time they can say shit and show a bare butt. As for violence, well this country has shit assbackward because violence is fine. Lets go nuts with that shit, but don't say fuck or show a boob or it's too much.

    The iconography of the poster is all wrong

    by Tom Thatcher

    The naked woman with the older man standing behind her with his are wrapped around her shoulder says exposed/vulnerable/helpless and father/protector. Not really what the book is about, or so I am informed. Other random thoughts: 1. A book about a dumpy middle-aged reporter who gets to solve crimes, overthrow the government, and have sex with a hot 20-year old, written by a dumpy middle-aged reporter. Hmmm. 2. Larsson once witnessed the gang-rape of a 15 year old and did not intervene. He wrote this book (in which a rape victim takes bloody revenge) partly to make up for that. Hmmmm. 3. Those of you praising European sensibilities about sex, please note that in Europe, if a rich powerful businessman decides to give the hotel chambermaid a quick poke, and she complains to the police, he is the victim. Also note that 75% of French men think Dominique Strauss-Kahn was set up because they can't imagine a rich white man stooping to have sex with a poor black immigrant.

    You cant whack off over black & white nudity. You just look at it and go 'hmmm' like you're in an art gallery. Stars know this, so if they're going to be photographed nude they always go black and white. Everyone says to the actress 'wow you're so brave and uninhibited going nude - but arent you worried loads of ugly guys are going to whack off over your pictures?' "No" says the actress "Im not. Black and white pics only. Black and white. They won't know whether to whack off or write a 500 page thesis on the photographers use of light and shade."

    by Tom Thatcher

    ...which seems to be the only part of Europe that runs around telling other people how they should live. Look, putting a naked breast on a movie poster is not brave, bold, provocative, transgressive, or ground-breaking. It's just using sex to sell something else, and don't expect me to be impressed. Use that poster to advertise the movie in Saudi Arabia, then I'll be impressed. And, without speaking to the rest of American "culture," no, sorry, it is not repressed to want to keep pictures of naked women out of public spaces such as movie theatre lobbies. I have the opportunity to control my children and grandchildren's access to violence and nudity at home but not in public spaces.

    Try reading a book or two (it doesn't have to be these...this trilogy might be over your head). The original text with "tatoos, piercings and skanky whores" uses all those elements and they fit with her character, her backstory, and the relationships she develops with all the other characters in the story. That's why all the titles start with "THE GIRL..." as they're all about her, who she is, and why she does what she does. You're a waste of talkback space.

The poster you so dismissively chopped , was in fact correct that it's a remake that can't be improved, but only exists because the avg. USA moviegoer won't see a film with subtitles. I think it's a tragedy... I love Fincher, his work speaks for itself, I don't see how he can make a movie any better than the swedish version... It's gripping, breathtaking and captivating with the quality of it's characterizations... Hell the plot is a maguffin in a way. It exists to tell a story about the characters... like good entertainment should!!! I'm not saying yer CHOPPED... but yer definitely grated a wee bit! :-)

    by dahveed1972

    Brian De Palma and Carrie. Ironic, cuz De Palma is considered a proficient hack himself. But for that movie, he actually looked like an original talent. A visionary even.

  • The first swedish film was decent, and the two sequels were definitely quite different in pacing and budget. In fact, I thought that the original films, while a good effort, stuck too closely to the books and felt like a by-the-numbers teleplay of the books' plot. Look at Fincher's Fight Club (I bet you didn't read that either...try adding a few other things to your amazon cart besides games)...Fight Club was a lot different from the book and was a cinematic adaptation. The man knows how to make a good book into an even more interesting movie. An by the way, when you go into a movie debate...try seeing the films/reading the books first, instead of covering your tracks there by quoting the film summaries from other reviews. It's a giveaway.

    So the films from Sweden..

    by Madcapper

    ..aren't good enough for audiences outside Scandinavia? In my opinion those films were good enough to NOT warrant remakes. I guess a lot of people just find reading subtitles terribly difficult. Or maybe it's the foreign language that puts people off. I would bash Hollywood for the ridiculous practice of remaking everything California-style, if it weren't for the fact that they only do it, because that's what millions of lazy fuckers want.

    If Benjamin Button's a masterpiece, then so is Forest Gump

    by dahveed1972

    and Forest Gump is NOT a masterpiece. Technically brilliant, beautiful to look at, easy to watch, life affirming. NOT a masterpiece. Im not sure if Seven or Fight Club are masterpieces, but they're a hell of a lot more important (culturally, artistically, thematically) than Benjamin Button. That said, i was impressed by BB and enjoyed it thoroughly. Its a culmination of Fincher's technical brilliance and his desire to make a movie his kids (and mine)can see. I can totally dig that. I assume you read an interview where Fincher states that BB was his most "person film". Otherwise, not sure what makes you think that. Or why it matters. A director's so-called "personal film" can often be a total fucking disaster. If you need a list of examples let me know.

    by nuprin

This is a testament to the work that's going into makeup and her acting (I thought she was great in Social Network...especially in that first scene, she's awesome). The fact that you're all calling her an ugly emo this or that...well, that's exactly what her character Lisbeth Salander would want you to think about that you'd stay clear of her and she wouldn't have to deal with you. I hope Fincher and Mara are reading this...they'll be validated in their acting/directing choices by what you're saying.

    catchtheman - Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    All the proof you should need that, even if a subtitled film turns out to be one of the greatest ever made in any language (Seven Samurai), that an American remake just a few short years later can not only be good, but be outstanding and a classic in its own right (Magnificent Seven). So stop your bitching and move along, troll, move along. Other examples to shut the troll up include: Yojimbo/Fistful of Dollars Hidden Fortress/Star Wars My point is how's about you reserve judgment until David Fincher, a well-proven excellent director, has presented his film. Because right now you're bitching like you've got sand in your vagina and the film's not even close to being out yet. And that just makes you look like a whiny fucking moron.

  • June 8, 2011, 9:47 a.m. CST



    I can see why you went the lazy route and compared BB to Forrest Gump, but the only similarity between the two films is the screenplay adapter, Eric Roth. Other than that, there is nothing similar to the films. Not in choice of direction, not in tone, not in staging of the film. Nothing. Where Gump goes often is nostalgic and hokey and saccahrine, BB goes melancholy somber and personal. BB doesnt meet famous people and instigate revolutions and cultural changes in a oh geez did i do that way. He meets normal people at certain times in their life and only later do we see the changes hes made, unknowingly. Never in a film have a witnessed something so unwaveringly true and never felt forced or cliche. Devastatingly and gorgeously epic filmmaking and it will one day be recognized for the greatness it is.

    by mudbug

    cautiously optimistic, but not too hopeful. I'm counting on the usual hollywood remake crap, take all the subtlety and everything else that made the original good out of it, then make up with overblown "production values", a plot so simplistic that a 2 year old could follow it, and a few extra special effects. And yes, Harry, that "production values" comment was a call out to you - he who complained that the original did not have good enough "production values".... Man, has he gone south or what, talks out both sides of his face with regards to Hollywood's movie making ability, don't he?

    It's personal comparatively to his other films, which can be described as clinical and cold. I love all his other films, and I find it hard to choose a favorite, but they come off very matter-of-fact. You see dark and great visuals but never once do you see who the director is. This is the first time the man who directed the film shone through into his work.

I hope you do think that a 'hot chick' has been made to look like a 'lesbo skank': if it's easier imagine Lisbeth Salander castrating you with a broken bottle than sucking your cock, then they've done a good job evoking the character.

    dahveed1972 - Forrest Gump is a masterpiece.

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Benjamin Button is a bloodless refried rift on Gump, but without any virtue of character or emotion. Tell me, what is it that Benjamin Button CARES about? What's his moral disposition toward others and the world? What's his defining characteristic as a human being? What are his hopes, his dreams, his fears? I know the answer to all these questions in regard to Forrest Gump because he's a finely drawn character that I can invest in, Benjamin Button is a cold mannequin walking around through the Gump narritive structure. And I'm the guy that refutes those same claims made against Meet Joe Black, I think that movie and character are actually fairly poignant. I love Fincher a whole lot but what he thought would set Button as darkly brooding and elusive just rendered him bland and distancing. Also Alexandre Desplat's scores are the musical equivalent of white rice; Will it serve its purpose - yeah. Will it make you frown with disguist - no. Will you be wholly satisfied and yearn for more out of the sheer pleasure of its flavor - not likely. Desplat is pretty wallpaper to Alan Silvestri's Sistine Chapel. And that's pretty much how Benjamin Button stacks up against every aspect of Forrest Gump. BB's cold digital cinematography versus FG's warm anamorphic 35mm. Fincher's detached direction versus Zemeckis' heartfelt. Pitt's forgetable character to Hanks' un. Every lovely thing film has to offer is skillfully present in Forrest Gump; Story. Characters. Emotion. Struggle. Sacrafice. Romance. Friendship. Humor. Joy. Anguish. Ennui. Triumph. Lose. Redemption. Mortality. Morality. Whimsy. Nostagia. Intimacy. Grandure. Destiny. Happenstance. History. Race. Class. Spirituality. Innovation. Beauty. Sentiment. Humanity. Heart. - Yeah, it's a masterpiece.

There is absolutely no reason in the world for any studio to approve a poster such as this to promote a film. This does not say to me it’s going to be a good film. It says “we aren’t sure the audience is there for us to make our money back, so we’re going to resort to pornography to entice more guys to see this”. It also says they couldn’t care less about all the people who would find this a bit offensive or any young movie goer who might happen to see it somewhere.

I would be a liar and hypocrite if I said North America as a whole was a moral culture. Heck, one guy in this forum claims that the only reason there is censoring is due to religion and I would say if we didn't have any religion at all, would that make abuse okay, would that make old men stalking little girls okay, would that make defiling your best friend's wife okay?

  • June 8, 2011, 11:21 a.m. CST



    You cite the lack of emotion in BB, which I find truly wondrous. That film was chock-ful of emotion and never once did it feel manipulative. You say that the film was detached and cold, like Fincher directs. Whereas Gump goes from one cultural event to the next, like a cliched biopic, Benjamin Button serenely strolls itself to a satisfying conclusion. It really does feel like a life story of a person, let alone Daisy's. Gump feels like it is going through the dramatic motions of storytelling 101. And the score--well different strokes i suppose. Silvestri's score fits the film it is for and that's fine. It is actually what it needs to be--anthemic and moving when the pop songs aren't playing. Desplat's score is something altogether different so you really can't compare. It is ambient, heartmoving, and completely complimentary to the film it is in. But lets go back to emotion that you feel was brimful in Forrest. Never have I seen a more manipulative film than Gump. Need a heartfelt scene for Gump to "reflect" and have a "life change", kill his friend. It happens a few more times in the film, i might add. As for the main characters--Forrest Gump is a cypher. Plain and simple. The reason is was so loved was because he was the perfect Everyman. The 90's version of Chance. His wants and needs were very simple. He even speaks in cute little soundbites for the masses. Benjamin is a little more complex, but what do you expect from Fitzgerald? He is a little more introverted and really doesn't give much away about himself. People project onto him and assume wrongly about what he is (like many people did with the film). He wants to be accepted yes, but he also wants to know why he is the way he is and to what purpose. Does he get his answer? Alas, it is not about the destination, but rather the journey. Don't get me wrong--I like Forrest Gump. I think its entertaining. But it ain't the best film. It ain't even Zemeckis's crowning achievement. Benjamin Button is art. It's only time before the rest of you understand that. Here end of lesson. You get a free CHOP pass.

  • June 8, 2011, 11:23 a.m. CST

    She's naked, sure, and Craig is gripping her in what is a more jealous and covetous way than a protective one. It's almost like he's hiding behind her, too. And would you look at her face? Does that expression tell you she's scared or desires protection? No, it's as if she's saying, "Yeah, I'm naked. So what? What the fuck are you going to do about it?" That, little boys, is a woman so comfortable with her sexuality that she's using it as a weapon on her own goddamn terms.

    by Lord Elric

    Was pretty flat. I think the problem is, while it's edgy, it doesn't say anything and the title of the movie flashes bu too quickly for "normals" to make any sense of it. Still, between that and this very cool poster, I like the edginess to the marketing. Beats the crap out of 99% of what passes for a movie poster these days. Also makes me think that maybe this Americanized remake will have it's own special qualities to look forward to. Keep pushing that line! :)

    Stories are supposed to manipulate you, maybe Fincher should embrace it. Skipping along historical benchmarks is part of Forrest Gump's whimsy and charm. I'm a sentimental sap I guess, and it's not that you're not right if looking at it on paper (or script), but it's the execution of Forrest Gump, especially by the actors that really bring it home for me. Both Benjamin Button and Forrest Gump are syphers for the audience to project themselves on. Both are aimless but one has a creed. Forrest Gump is a constanty dismissed and underestimated underdog who we can project our own shotcommings on and yet keep hope of overcomming by simple virtue of character. Happiness can be achieved through decency. That's inspiring. Benjamin Button represents our wondering and wandering nature and the inner beauty of our insecurites. He's a character that starts out life a repulsive misfit and grows into a golden god of youthful allure and bafflingly smug self-assuredness whom thinks too much and feels very little and will never find happiness. I don't know if that makes BB more complex but it does make it pointless and depressing. Forrest Gump doesn't know much but he knows what love is and he finds relevance to his life by serving and defending the ones he loves with a fierce loyalty. Benjamin Button knows much but he doesn't know what love is, his life is irrelevant because he serves only his own defense and has no loyalties. Benjamin seems to me to have no love or passion in him at all. He has innocuous curiosities but not investments or principles. Walking out on people without ever looking back to supposedly spare them from witnessing his youth is as noble as he gets. Benjamin Button just felt hollow and empty to me. I don't think Benjamin Button is a horrible movie. It's interesting and well crafted and unmoving. But I'm just a genteel gentile and a daydream believer, so you knew I had the back of my ever faithful brother Gump over my ponderously fickle cousin Button. K.I.S.S. Please don't chop me, I'm a pacifist.

    Yes, let's follow the moral leadership of the French!


    (AFP)--The Moroccan government said Wednesday it had ordered a probe into claims that a French ex-minister had sexually molested boys in Morocco. Luc Ferry, a French former education minister, claimed in a television interview last week that another ex-cabinet minister had molested boys at a Moroccan orgy and that senior figures covered it up. In most countries, that's rape. In France, it's called "entitlement."

    Americans become lame when they have kids...

    by Andrew Coleman

    You see this all the time. People who defend shitty movies because "They are for kids" is usually used by people who have kids. Then when it comes to posters like this they always go to the... "What if I take my kids to Mr. Popper Penguins(or whatever the fuck that pice of shit is called)and they see this?". Um I don't give a fuck. Maybe you should explain to your kids that the human body, especially the female human body is AMAZING. Instead of just hiding them from everything until they are 18 and then they go fucking crazy with sex and drugs. It seems like 80% of the time people complaining about this stuff are people who have kids.

  • In fact, I find that I become less and less lame with time. I suspect this development is in proportion to the epic amount of pussy I've been getting over the better part of the past year.

  • June 8, 2011, 2:03 p.m. CST



    Is there a point in there? Since your parents obviously won't take you to see the new penguin film, i'll do it. But you hafta sit on my lap. And feed me milk duds.

  • And slipping them luudes before turning them around in the hot tub.

  • The music was a little more pop rock than I would expect from this, but then again idk much about this film besides the box sets I see at the stores. And also, I was surprised with the quick cuts used. All in all it was more like a promo for a new cd by a rock band than a fincher film imo; I might check out the originals and then this.

    by nuprin

    I don't post here much, and I don't know him. Just passing through because a link sent me to this poster and I thought this was an interesting discussion, since I've read the books. I never accused him of a hate crime (ooohhh...sarcasm, Falkner...nice one). His post about strippers and women who have been assaulted just made him sound really ignorant. But I guess I'm not the only one who agrees, so had I known, I wouldn't have even responded.

    striking image but all wrong for Dragon Tattoo

    by Jack Burton

    Here is a movie that features the main character being raped, as well as multiple other women being brutally murdered and raped. And they are using the image of Rooney Mara in character as Lisbeth Salander naked to sell it? No one else has a problem with the tacky mixed message here? At no point does Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) "protect" Lisbeth so why does he have his arm around her like he is shielding her or, worse, possessing here? What the fuck are you thinking with this sexualized image, Fincher? The trailer is stylish, that is all. And I'll bet most people are reacting to the Zep cover by Karen O and Trent Reznor more than anything with their over the top praise. I've read the book, I saw the original movie. This looks like a copy and nothing more. I want Fincher's Dragon Tattoo to justify it's existence. Right now it just feels crass as hell, and I've loved most of Fincher's work. This is just the wrong tone.

    by nuprin

    Respect. Respect. First of all, thank you for stating your opinions articulately (I'm looking at you, Faulkner). I've also seen and read the original books and swedish adaptations...IMHO (and I stated this in an earlier post), your reaction to this poster is exactly what her character Lisbeth Salander would want you to think about that everyone would stay clear of her and she wouldn't have to deal with you. So I'd say it's pretty much in line with her character throughout all 3 books...the more she was mistreated...the more in your face she got with her appearance (save for the boob job in book two...but that seemed like more for herself than anyone's viewing). Oh, and by the way...You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn... call the president.

  • June 8, 2011, 3:11 p.m. CST

    Again, many of you are misreading this poster.


    She's naked, sure, and Craig is gripping her in a more jealous and covetous way than a protective one. It's almost like he's hiding behind her, too. And would you look at her face? Does that expression tell you she's scared or desires protection? No, it's as if she's saying, "Yeah, I'm naked. So what? What the fuck are you going to do about it?" That, little boys, is a woman so comfortable with her sexuality that she's using it as a weapon on her own goddamn terms. It seems that the ones who are quick to yell "misogynist" and "sexist" are the ones most fixated on the tits.

  • June 8, 2011, 3:12 p.m. CST

    by D_T

    Read the 1st book (woman actually Kindle'd it and I scored a copy on my iDookie), decent, though not worthy of the "must read" hype. Are 'Fire' and 'Hornets Nest' worth pursuing, given I'd rate 'Dragon' as a 6/6.5 out of 10 ?

  • June 8, 2011, 3:19 p.m. CST


    by Jack Burton

    Interesting take on it. If the marketing continues in that vein than you might be right. It may be because I'm a cynic, but this imagery seems like something a marketing team dreamed up without taking the actual events of the movie into consideration. I still think it's crass and in poor taste. And thanks all for the love for my username.

    by Jack Burton

    I would say "No" if you didn't like Dragon Tattoo. Girl who Played with Fire is way too long and pretty tedious. It's like they decided not to edit the manuscript after Stieg Larson died and it is just filled with pointless transition scenes and two dimensional characters. And the best part of it, Lisbeth, isn't even in the narrative for 200 pages. I wasn't impressed and disliked it so much I never continued with Hornet's Nest.

    by Dr_PepperSpray

    No, I have not seen Fincher's version, however I did see the trailer and almost everything in it looks like a shot for shot version of whats in the original which leads me to believe very little is different besides the language. <P> Listen, I like Fincher and I understand this is like his cover album but so far doesn't look or sound any different then the original. So what's the point then might I ask? <P> Oh, and you Sir are a page waster.

    by D_T

    I liked it OK (my 6-6.5/10), but I think most of the people who push on to 2 and 3 liked it much more. I might give them a try sometime, got a few other things in the queue, and any more, my time to actually sit and read is so limited, I'm kind of selective with that time. True Story from just last week: the neighbor has a lab and our little girl was throwing a chew toy to her, and slung this one backwards and I reached out and snagged it. The dog owner looked at me kind of surprised, I said "It's all in the reflexes" (with kind of a Burton-esque delivery). Totally lost on him, but I chuckled :D

    Fincher's remake fills me with an enourmous sense of curiosity. What will he do with his movie? Will he compeltly depart from the style of the original movie, or it will be much closer then one would expect? What will it be?

    asimovilves...fincher and books...

    by nuprin

    From the trailer, it looks like a lot of the "iconic" moments from the book is in there. But food for thought...Fincher's only done two films based on previous (fiction) material, and it was Fight Club and Benjamin Button. I've read both and the films were VERY VERY different...and in both cases, much much better. So, curiosity is at a real high for me about this film...especially since I was a big fan of all 3 books (although I agree with ole PorkChopExpress that the later books got way too self indulgent). Still, I loved Lisbeth's character all the way through.

  • June 8, 2011, 4:19 p.m. CST

    Chopp_ah: I don't need to test drive the thing.

    by Dr_PepperSpray

    Its obvious. So therefore I stand by my original argument. There is this movie called "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" on netflix streaming. I'll bet, though I haven't seen Finchers version, but judging by every stinking shot in the trailer is a clone of what's in the original with only language and performer changes, that it's almost exactly the same thing and you can save ten plus dollars, in these hard times, by just watching it on netflix and in HD! Oh, and the best part is its not even an old movie! <P> Seriously though, I applaud Fincher for trying. As i said I like his movies but really what's the point? I mean its almost as if someone tried to produce an American version of funny gam--- Oh God damn it Heneke!

  • June 8, 2011, 4:24 p.m. CST

    dr_pepper....I totally see your point...

    by nuprin

    But I do think there are exceptions to the rule. And I wholeheartedly hoping that this one will be as well. A couple of examples...LET ME IN last year looked like a shot for shot...especially in the trailer, even moreso than this film. But that turned out to have subtle nuances in story and editing and character that made it feel a lot different (sidetrack...hey, that was also a swedish film...althought I think LET THE RIGHT ONE IN was a much better movie than Swedish DRAGON TATTOO). Anywhoo...another film I was pleasantly surprised about who's trailer looked similar to the predecessor was True Grit. Not very many director's I would gamble the $10 on at this point, I totally agree...but, Fincher is definitely one of them.

  • I found the movie to be enthraling from start to end. I found the ending to be particulary moving for everybody involved. As for the stupid english title, it is stupid. The original title is THE MEN WHO HATE WOMEN, which is also the tile of both the book and the movie in most other language,s including my own portuguese. A title which is very apropos about the story it tells. The english title is bullshit, a mere slight at the main female character and has nothing to do with the bloody story.

As for the girl who played with fire title, it actually is pretty apt to the stor,y considering what she did to her old man when she was younger and how that affected her whole life, and not just her life but her father's as well. As for The Air Castle that Blew Up, really, what's wrong with that title as well? It's as apt as well.

    Its probably less about Sony being random controlling dicks

    by Bass Ackwards

    And more to do with MPAA rules (or someone's rules, not sure if its still MPAA with movie posters/print ads) regarding advertising material. Boobie posters are likely a no-no in non-age restricted areas here stateside, so in order to get away with it Sony has to make a good faith effort to maintain that piece of advertising internationally. Hence pull the poster. And by the way, Sony is the big money grubbing corporation, you guys are the geek website, if someone is supposed to be "punk rock" in this situation, it'd be you.

    The morals thing...

    by MoffatBabies

    actually one of the more hilarious aspects of being an American these days. We won't show boobies, almost anywhere, but we'll fuck out a few pairs of crack babies and the government supports them. All while clothing trends tend toward making 11 year old girls look like they're sportin' double ds. We fill kids with a cornocopia of drugs while a plant will still land you in jail in most states, even if you're a consenting adults. But don't say fuck, or show anyone a boobie... cause.. you know.. bad for the moral character and all. What a joke. Shame on almost all of you. Looks like an interesting movie. Is that Roony Mara??

And all this trying to figure out who used to be someone else five years ago or if one person has two handles so he can agree with himself. It's just Silly. The only way to make any kind of mark around here is to be amusing ultimately. I've been posting here for about two years I guess. I've written long thought out responses on many different films or TV show discussions and I've had a half dozen or so people agree with me (usually) and everyone else either doesn't notice what I said or ignores it because they're too busy taking the piss out of each other. I think one of the moderators responded to me once. But I've never been banned or CHOPPED so I guess I'm doing OK in the grand scheme of things.

    Wee Willy Eff -- I don't care what your handle was.

    by AssyMuffJizz

    Facts about Wee Willy: 1. Willy is a liar. He has claimed to have been at least three talkbackers since he made his appearance some months ago. He often toys with the idea that he is an AICN moderator. His latest claim to be Jehovahs_Witness is yet another in a long string of lies that he's perpetuated. 2. Willy is always on his high-horse. Whether lampooning or generally mocking TBers explicitly or implicitly, Willy's posts take online self-righteousness to a new level. And he's been a consistent defender of AICN administrators. Given that and his "my shit don't stink" sensibilities, it's little wonder so many have suspected he's a craven Black Boxer in disguise. 3. Willy never writes substantive, on-topic posts which elevate the conversation and betray a love for cinema. Even the fucking Choppah seems to know his shit. Willy seems solely interested in beating other TBers down. That's his MO. Seriously talking about movies - not so much. 4. Willy is obsessive. Note his recent fascination with Aspbergers disease (i.e., attributing it to TBers, both individually and generally). This follows a consistent pattern of obsessive/compulsive behavior. 5. Willy is never, NEVER funny. For example, his long-winded dig at that Cobra guy above. He accuses other TBers of juvenile humor and, in almost the same breath, goes on to make some of the most pretentious, embarrassing, situational jokes ever to grace AICN. No wonder people think he's Moaters. 6. Willy is always a bore. This is his worst offense. All other points could be forgiven if his posts held an inkling of creativity or insight. Demonstrably, they do not. In short, I doubt there is a TBer around these parts that can genuinely claim to like Wee Willy Eff and can give a sound, evidence-based defense of him as a TBer and as a human being. So, please: go away, Willy. No one likes you, and no one wants you here. Simply leave.

    Wee Will Eff is also sexist and homophobic (in a really serious, unfunny way). He likes the word "retard" quite a lot as well (but doesn't seem to have a clue on how to use it effectively). You really believe I'm in any way obsessed with you? You think you make my "life miserable?" Sorry, Eff. You're more like a vaguely interesting, repellent bug or fungus to me. I actually moderately enjoy kicking you around. All my conclusions about you are obvious ones spawned by a brief reflection on all I've perceived since you first appeared on the TBs some months ago. No obsession required. It's not like you have any fascinating depth or complexity. And some advice: you really should take a lesson from the Choppah on snappy comebacks. He's a grade A prick, true: but I grudgingly admit that he chopped the fuck out of me earlier this morning. And he can be funny. Anyway, stick around if you're into getting hurt. It's kind of fun having an utterly despicable troll-persona to collectively kick around occasionally. See you soon, loverboy.

    I'll have to get used to you being get.everyone now. Yeah, the place is bland nowadays. I haven't posted here forever, and I'm starting to remember why.

    Hey, GE

    Yeah, man. I get monthly updates about....

    by Lee

    the pantheon, but I can never understand how anything gets nominated if you guys aren't congregating here. The shelter hasn't been updated in months (so it seems, that service is lacking to say the least). The new TBs aren't a patch on the old turf. grumbles *soon we'll have an edit button* Anyway, back to my Breaking Bad marathon. I'll drop in again later.

    I know it'll pain Faulker that I can't acknowledge him

    by D.Vader

    But I'm at Bonnaroo watching Arcade Fire, Eminem, The Black Keys, The Decmberists, Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, Devotchka, The Strokes, Neil Young, Robert Plant, a Garden State screening with Zach Braff, Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, and many many others. MadFuckingMax, I regret I won't get to catch up with you. I hope you'll hang around in the future! Billy Faulkner- I know it might be hard for you to tell, but I wasn't insulting Emily at all. I was pointing out to a talkbacker that there is no evidence Emily is doing anything other than presenting Super 8. It's implied the whole thing was JJ's idea, not hers, so it's doubtful she's turned it into something else other than a simple screening. ContinentalOp: thanks for the sound effects. I finished the short yesterday RIGHT at the last minute before I had to leave for this road trip. I definitely used one file. I may use more on the director's cut which is absolutely necessary. BSB: we haven't engaged in quite awhile, friendo, but I hope you're doing well. I see you're still "excited" for Green Lantern and Captain America. I hope all this tension you've built up will have a wonderful release when year films are released. Cobra-Kai (and Conti): thanks for the support. We don't see enough TBers with your quality around here much anymore. Everyone else: if I get the chance to see the Zach Braff Q&A, does anyone have any good questions about the movie or otherwise that they'd like answered? A question about sex with Rachel Bilson, I feel, will just get me kicked out of the tent. Though im as curious as you.

    Bonnaroo FTW!!! Very envious, for me Buffallo Springfield w/Fury, Stills, and NEIL FUCKING YOUNG would have been worth the price of admission alone. Tres Cool, Rock on . . . .

    I'll only state that it involves a teenage version of me, a little gay bar in Mississippi, and a toothless biker who kept screaming, "I'm gonna eat the corn out of yer shit!" If you want to know more, it'll cost you $2.50 a minute.

    Sorry for the late reply my man. Much appreciated. Yeah you're right, enough foreplay, it's time to get it on with Ryan and Chris.

    Aw, Wee Willy Effer

    by AssyMuffJizz

    How sweet. Willy really was taken with me and my sexual orientation. And had lots and lots of questions. I wonder why. Seriously. Shutting Willy down was too easy. One openly gay man rendered him utterly harmless. He's just too curious in spite of himself. Come on out of the closet, Willy. The weather's fine here.
