The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Trailer

"The Feel Bad Movie of Christmas!" We normally don't post bootlegs, but this is so worth it this time! If you haven't heard, Sony debuted a red band trailer internationally, not in the US yet, for the upcoming David Fincher remake/retake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Even if you haven't seen the original films or read the books, you must watch this! SlashFilm found an early bootleg. It's an amazing trailer, one of the best I've seen, it totally has a Fight Club-esque feel, I love the music (it's Trent Reznor's redo of "Immigrant Song"), I love the editing, this trailer pure brilliance. Stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. Watch now!

Watch the first red band trailer for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo:

(We'll post this embed of the trailer until it's removed and will let you know when the official is out.)

A journalist is aided in his search for a woman who'd been missing, or dead, for forty years, by a young female hacker, played in this one by Rooney Mara. Based on Stieg Larsson's Millennium series of novels.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker David Fincher, of great films like Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac, Benjamin Botton and The Social Network just last year. The script was adapted by Oscar winning screenwriter Steven Zaillian (Schindler's List, Hannibal, Gangs of New York, All the King's Men, American Gangster) directly from Larsson's novel. Sony is bringing Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to theaters on December 21st, right near Christmas. I cannot wait to see this!

Its Zeppelin, there is no better... but this version isnt bad. Trailer looks wicked!

Drumzamazin on May 31, 2011

Definitely a fresh take on the song. People should stop acting like Zeppelin are untouchable. I grew up on them, and they are my idols, but that doesn't mean changing a song of theirs butchers it.

Jesse on May 31, 2011

Awesome. Probably better than the original films. Trent Reznor/Karen O is an amazing collaboration.

Hallospaceboy on May 28, 2011

It is exactly what it  looks like, An over Americanized version of a Great Foreign film... I swear Liz is so ugly in the American version, the foreign film is and always will be so much better. The trailer looks pretty cool, but thats just because its all flashy and fast paced.

Adcoria on May 28, 2011

13

"the foreign film is and always will be so much better" ...have you seen the remake?

RhythmDave on May 29, 2011

14

No I have not seen the remake, and I know what your gonna say "then don't say anything if you havent seen it" But if you haven't noticed, America seems to keep making horrible remakes of Foreign films, EX: [REC], Let The Right One In, The Ring, The Grudge, etc. Now don't get me wrong David Fincher is a Fantastic Director, I admire him, but Im just mad at the fact that America likes to remake stuff that Europeans already thought of. And now Universal wants to remake TROLL HUNTERS. Oh Hell know. In my opinion the Swedes and the Spanish have the best foreign films.

Adcoria on May 30, 2011

15

what was wrong with let me in? it wasn't as great as the original but it was still quite good and opened it to an audience of peoiple who wouldn't see the story if only in english.

airosah on May 31, 2011

16

Don't get me wrong, I did not like Let Me In as much as I loved the original, but it was a fine film. And I understand when you say "opened it to an audience of people who wouldn't see the story if only in english" but what I say is that those people are ignorant and don't deserve to see such a film. For example, I know a guy and he was boasting about the movie Quarantine(which was HORRIBLE), he said "That movie was badass and fucken scary" I replied "Really? That movie sucked completely.Have you seen the original? Its so much better in spanish." He goes "Nah, I don't watch that foreign crap." What I'm trying to say is that the filmmakers of these fantastic foreign films hardly get credit for being the first to portray such beautiful stories on the silver screen. I mean to me a lot of foreign films are amazing, and foreigners know how to make films 100X better than Americans.

Adcoria on Jun 4, 2011

17

agreed... it's fine to enjoy the remake for what it is, if only people would give credit to the original. (I dont think you were implying that the ring and the grudge are originally European films, but just to add to your point that it's not just European films but Asian as well).  

ethr on Jun 15, 2011

What was over-Americanized about it?

Xerxexx on May 29, 2011

19

Read my last statement, "flashy and fast-paced" The original is also flashy and fast-paced, but it has an elegance to it that is beautiful. What I get from this trailer is "come watch this movie so we can try and make it better than the Swedish version"

Adcoria on Jun 4, 2011

20

I too don't understand why they made her so ugly. She's pretty sexy in the original, but honestly just gross and eyebrowless in this one. 

mrtibbs on May 31, 2011

21

Thank you. And the tattoo is so small compared to the Swedish one. I think I don't even want to watch this one because she is so ugly.

Adcoria on Jun 4, 2011

i hate remakes, a especialy soooo soon....but this looks sooo sick, and i Fing LOVE this story!!! F yeah!!!

23

there are so many scenes in this trailer which look exactly like in the european movie, nearly the same...

Jim Jones on May 28, 2011

24

Yea, that's true, but it still looks badass. It just looks like the original film rewashed in a David Fincher filter with English-speaking actors and a Trent Reznor score. Sounds awesome to me!

Alex Billington on May 28, 2011

25

i don't usually say this, but i think it's gonna be better than the original. i think it will do more justice to the book (even though it has a different ending).

Yeah I already have that movie on bul-ray, I see no reason to why I would go out and spend like 20 bills on something i can watch at home.

Looks great from the minute or so I saw but is a terrible teaser. Shows way too much.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who hates this teaser, the footage looks great, but the quick cuts and flashes don't really give us the opportunity to appreciate it.

I actually saw this trailer in the theatre before Hangover II.  Seems Canadians have different rules when it comes to redband trailers. I have to admit that the film looks decent, however I am still skeptical about the need for an Americanized version other than language.  Also the trailer is definitely very "Fincherish" (if there is such a term).

Sean Kelly on May 28, 2011

41

Totally agree with you, especially about the "americanized" statement. I haven't seen the original, but this does look extremely promising...

this is the guy who hates on anything & everyone who becomes mainstream... and when asked what he likes, he has to pull some foreign guy out of his @$$... bc like any good american, he has to appear ahead of the curb, but yet he's prob never taken the time to learn a foreign language or study other cultures.

Anonymous on May 30, 2011

I'm sure I'll enjoy the film since it's a Fincher production (even though I loved the first, true version), but this trailer is pure garbage. It's built on the idea that you already know the story. It should be built on the idea that you DON'T know the story. I'm sitting here seeing recognizable scenes from the original version instead of understanding what's the film is about. Garbage.

Quanah on May 29, 2011

48

I completely agree with you. I have to admit. I haven't watched the original and neither have I read any of the books. So for a person like me who has no prior experience whats-so-ever; it seems the trailer was made for people who are familiar with the story/previous movies rather than catch new followers. I have no idea what was going on! But it being a David Fincher movie with Daniel Craig and a bad-ass looking Rooney Mara, I am pretty sure the movie is going to be awesome.

Ron on May 29, 2011

49

You do know this is a teaser right? Doesn't make it better that you don't know what's going on? That all you know is that it makes you feel awesome. Or would you rather it tell you everything like so many trailers do nowadays?

Phontsolo on May 29, 2011

50

I felt this 'teaser/trailer/whatever' doesn't give ME any incentive to watch this movie. And at the end of the day isn't that what teasers and trailers supposed to do? Sell the movie? There are many good trailers out there that don't ruin the movie and still convinces you to watch the movie.   

Ron on May 29, 2011

51

No one wants you to watch it anyway

bob on May 29, 2011

52

Oh! Thanks for the enlightenment Bob.

Ron on May 29, 2011

53

Ron, you make a good point--that trailers should give you the incentive to watch the film. However (not trying to jump down your throat here), remember that many good films had HORRIFIC trailers--THE IRON GIANT comes to mind. I'm interested in watching this film myself, but the trailer has nothing to do with it.  Rather, it's the director and the stars that have my interest.

Anonymous on May 30, 2011

54

Oh I completely agree with you. In my earlier comments I wasn't trying to trash the movie in anyway. Like I mentioned; it being a David Fincher movie, Daniel Craig etc. I'm pretty sure it will be great. As you mentioned some good movies have bad trailers (Iron Giant was awesome!)and some bad movies have good trailers and so it would be really stupid to judge a movie by a trailer. I'm definitely going to watch this movie just based on what I know about the story, interest it is creating and the talent involved.

Ron on May 30, 2011

55

ITS A FUCKING TEASER!!

Phontsolo on May 29, 2011

56

It's still suppose to sell an idea. Thus far it's selling a convoluted mess. I've cut teasers before in an editing room. This is no teaser. It's a series of confusing shots meant to sell Fincher's style, not the actual film. It doesn't matter anyway...I'm sure I'll love the movie. I just hate the trailer and you can't make me stop hating it. I know that's tearing you up inside. ūüėČ

I cried a lot man. A lot. I wept hard when I saw that trailer and my wife had to call the paddy wagon to come get me because I started flipping tables over. This whole thing has just destroyed me. I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't make fun of me for it because I might freak out again. /end sarcasm

It looks cool, and I like Fincher's work, but isn't this just unnecessary?  Do people really hate subtitles that much?  By the way, you can watch all three parts of the Swedish trilogy right now on Netflix Instant.

JL on May 29, 2011

Yes. It's harder to concentrate on the visuals if you're focused on the bottom of the screen. It always amazes me why people can't understand that...

Reading isn't hard it just has little place in a movie...

Anonymous on May 29, 2011

66

I can understand that just fine.  But it really isn't a stretch to watch the movie and read the subtitles.  It's not like the dialog in any movie is continuous.  Plus, if you can read well, you don't have to stare at the writing to get the dialog, just take a couple glances per line.  (I don't mean that as a slant on the illiterate, and I'm not saying you are, Bl00dwerK.  If someone can't read well, chances are it isn't their fault and they can blame it on the public school system, or their parents.)

JL on May 29, 2011

67

If there's quite a bit of dialog it causes you to stay focused on the bottom of the screen.. which divides your visual attention between two things. All things being equal I don't think anyone would prefer to see a movie in a language they don't speak if there's an alternative...

Anonymous on May 29, 2011

I'll never understand how people say they have to stare at the subtitles and miss the visuals of the film.   I mean, I just glance at the subtitles when they show up and I read the whole sentence.  Admittedly, I've been a heavy reader since I was a child, so I'm super fast at it, but still.   I've never missed a single thing on screen due to subtitles.

Chazzy on May 30, 2011

Same here, Chazzy. Still, not everyone likes reading subs--that's just how it is.  And most of them aren't dumb lunkheads; they just do not see the need to do so, or perhaps are more interested in watching a film in their own language.

Anonymous on May 30, 2011

JL, you might think it's unnecessary, but remember, we're not making the film.  Perhaps it is, but, it wouldn't be the first time that this has happened--remember LET ME IN?  That said, LMI was a fantastic remake (at least to me), and in the case of TGWTDT, I suppose one could say that it's a matter of "More of them than there are of us", meaning that there are still a lot of people who have not seen the original trilogy of films.  But perhaps they might like this one enough that they will check them out. And one more thing--the fact that this film exists shouldn't really bug you.  After all, it's not as if the original trilogy just up and vanished, right? Just sayin'...

Anonymous on May 30, 2011

I dunno, maybe I'm biased, but that was one of the sickest trailers I've seen this year! Beautifully edited, and the Immigrant song remix was amazing! I am not the biggest fan of the Millennium series (saw the movies, didn't read the books) but I think this looks EPIC. Get it through your head people, Studios think that remakes are in, and it's safer to remake something good than to come up with good-original work (safe=cheaper). If this movie was going to be remade anyway... Great cast, great score, amazing director. If you wanna complain, go yell about the Herbie remake starring Lindsay Lohan, because this movie is going to ROCK!

Considering the original is an overhyped piece of trash, this can't get any worse.  Hopefully we have less sodomy, sex and violence and more plot.  I mean: I still can't figure out what the hell the first half of the movie was for, except to show how sick the author was in the head.  It wasn't intelligent, it was just stupid.  Plain and simple: stupid.  Overly gruesome for the sake of it.  God, I hated it so much I threw the sequel out and never even bothered to watch it.  Ugh.  Rant over.

You obviously know nothing about the book series or Stieg Larsson. His whole purpose for writing the books was to shed light onto the brutality women experience from 'men who hate women,' which is the actual title of the first book. Just look it up on wikipedia, you ignorant fool.

I am from Sweden and the original was not that good. It had some really good acting from Rapace and suprisingly good camera work for a swedish movie/tv-series but apart from that it felt like a B-movie. The last half hour they just tried to cut togheter press in the information they needed to show for the sequels. As it was shot as a tv-series, many of these movies are in Sweden they often encounter this problem. Love Fincher so I will check this out.

Alex, it doesn't look like you to post a trailer with such bad quality, I'm not even going to watch it, even though I'm very excited about this. I'm looking forword to seeing Fincher getting back to his style of work after being disappointed by the Social Network.

M.K. Nielsen on May 29, 2011

94

Looks like a carbon copy of the original but will they keep all the subjective material like the original? With the MPAA rating system its tough to say what is allowable.  I don't think this will be as good as the original, though I am a big fan of Craig and Fincher.

I don't see what in the books would make it NC-17 and or X? It will have no problems getting an R, even with showing the brutal rape and stuff.

Yeah, it's rare to see bootleg like stuff here, but at least this bootleg was shot and uploaded in HiDef, so you get a crisp, clear, albeit shaky, picture.

looks better than the original to me. lizbeth is a great character and noomi rapace made those movies worth watching. shes awesome. if it wasnt for her, they wouldve felt like made for tv type stuff. hopefully this girls lizbeth is good. i dont expect it to be as good as noomi though, but even though it probably wont be the movie still looks good.

Ictimerlsf on May 29, 2011

98

Read the books and seen the original trilogy. This looks like a well done remake and possibly slightly new take on it. The original will probably be better, but I think they can do a better job on the 2nd and 3rd movies, which in MHO were not as good as the first.

Dkl....totally agree with everything u said.  Cannot wait.

They were made for TV though with smaller budgets and a different director. But also - the second and third books are much worse. I think the "murder mystery" of the first is much more interestin than Salanders 007-adventures and courtroomdrama.

Ryderup on May 29, 2011

101

Well, this isn't a remake. It's an American version based on the same book the foreign film was based on. it's an American interpretation. I kind of like that the old gritty "Fight Club"-style Fincher is coming back from a drama vacation. Welcome back. And thanks for delivering a non-conventional teaser trailer. Oh and to anyone who says this gives too much away, I'd bet that most people who watched this trailer have no effing idea what they just watched. I'd like to see people try to put the trailer together in a coherent, story-structured manner. Great teaser!

Marty on May 29, 2011

102

Me, being swedish and having watched the original films and read the books - I could put it out in a story-structured manner. Not that I mind about it. I think it's pretty cool you get snippets of stuff you know from the the book and the original film. ANd for people not having read or seen them - they won't get those snippets

Xerxexx on May 29, 2011

Sure they are but can they think, Run out of original ideas just remakes and stealing good work from foreing countries. Look what happened to let me in I'm so glad it failed. Some other examples REC/the next three days

Valvg on May 29, 2011

107

Since when did Let me in failed? It's a great movie! I prefered the original, but only because the first impact is allways the strongest. The american one had some great scenes. And Xerxexx is right, it's one thing to remake a film, other is adapting the same source material, it's not the same. The book series was a huge worldwide sucess. As far as I know Fincher may as well have read it and decided to make a movie about it.

Stealing? Most films that are remakes from foreign countries pay respect to the original source. Rarely do the studios allow adaptations of the foreign films ignore the source...so stealing isn't the right word. Other countries remake American films all the time...does the stigma of Americans "Stealing" films go both ways?

What other countries remake american movies? I'm just curious

Anonymous on May 30, 2011

There is a Japanese version of "Sideways."  Perhaps I need to ask it as a question: "If other countries remake American films does the stigma of Americans "Stealing" films go both ways?"

Xerxexx on May 30, 2011

111

Bollywood remake many movies with their own twist sometimes (Collateral -> The Killer, John Q ->Tathastu).  Japan (Sideways), China (Blood Simple's strange remake), many asian countries do it as well with small or grand differences (making them into period pieces, satirical comedy, so on).  I am not arguing with anyone, cuz in all honesty America has been remaking things for eons. And sadly so has everyone else.  There are different versions of Oldboy, and even the original that everyone loves is an adaptation of a Manga.  People preaching about originality choose to see the unoriginality in domestic artists first. Thats not something anyone can argue.  But what so many people seem to be doing here, bashing a good director for re treading water when thats what he has been known for a lot of his career is really silly.   PS.  Never watched the previous movies, or read the books, but as someone who didn't have a slight interest in either I applaud Fincher cuz i just ordered the book and am genuinely intrigued on where this will go.    I guess ignorance is bliss in my case, haha.

Thats not something anyone can argue.  But what so many people seem to be doing here, bashing a good director for re treading water when thats what he has been known for a lot of his career is really silly.   PS.  Never watched the previous movies, or read the books, but as someone who didn't have a slight interest in either I applaud Fincher cuz i just ordered the book and am genuinely intrigued on where this will go.    I guess ignorance is bliss in my case, haha.

Interesting point, Xerxexx...I once asked a buddy the same question, and he responded with, "It's not the same thing."  Now, I loved the dude like a brother, but I honestly wanted to smack him silly. I mean...did anyone over here scream and yell when the Japanese remade GHOST?  Nope.  And where is the screaming and crying over Chris Nolan's remake of INSOMNIA? I know there is the cry of "Why doesn't Hollywood do anything original?"  Well...it's because it is much harder to do so.  Remakes--especially remakes of foreign films--have been a staple of Hollywood for years.

well said. Hollywood has been in the remaking game for quite some time.

Most people seem to think that an American audience is a global audience. It isn't. Granted, we have quite a few films that go overseas, but that doesn't mean we don't have our own, particular audience that would enjoy an overseas film remade with an American twist. I think it's great we remake foreign films. I never understand why people freak out over it.

I'm inclined to agree with you.

ALl your films go overseas. I don't have a problem with remakes of foreign films per se -- but every remake removes the possibolity of an original idea instead.

That is a valid complaint. and at times the remakes are terrible, that's because the studios sacrifice quality for the sake of money...some remakes however have been very well done. Originality is dying...remakes are on the rise.

I think we all need to be reminded that American film studios are not all in it for the art, but the dollars. Granted, sometimes a studio takes a risk, but it is a business, and if they can bank on someone else's idea they will.

I bet you the series doesn't garner enough success to make it through all three books. Not hating, just making an observation.

I think this one will be a HUGE hit. HUGE. And they will do the second and third back to back √° Matrix and POTC.

UGH For the last time Fincher's GWTDT is not a remake of the Swedish films. It is another adaption from the book series. JFC

Jeezos, over 100 comments, this is nearly as exciting as a Transformers post. I've watched all the films and really dug them, but they were very strange in parts and quite slow, but that wasn't a negative. I'll watch the new version too as I was a fan of the series. As for the remakes I think India remake loads of U.S. movies often with hilarious outcomes. Like the one here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yysbbPStfWw

Crapola that was brilliant. Loved that Indian action sequence.

Wait a minute here, am I suppose to get the impression people liked the original Swedish movie? I thought it was garbage compared to the book, but I guess I'm in the minority. I'm glad Fincher is doing an American version.

I specially watched the original movie last night. This teaser is fine for me, I don't know if this one is going to be better or not, I'll only know it when I watch the whole US movie. About the teaser, if you already watched the original, you recognize the characters, nothing is going to be a surprise, because YOU ALREADY KNOW THE STORY and it's a f***** teaser... So, if you haven't seen the original movie and don't know anything about the story, is fine, because you can't guess what's about, and that's great because is just a teaser...so, please, can we give it a chance? I don't keen on remakes, I actually hate most of all, but well, if the remake is not that close to the original, fans do complain, and if it is too close, they complain the same. There's no way of making everybody happy. At least, people who never saw the original film will have a more productive experience than people who only complain or refuse to watch it based on a prejudice.
