***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.

REMOVED, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
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.
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.
