Fincher's 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' Hits a Day Early, Tuesday Night

David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

She's coming. Its been officially announced (via Deadline) by Sony/Columbia Pictures that David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will now be opening in theaters a day early, starting December 20th instead of the original release of December 21st. These are essentially early midnight showings of the dark, R-rated film, as they'll start showing Dragon Tattoo at 7PM nationwide on the Tuesday evening of the 20th, an exact week from today. It's a very crowded time for movies this holiday, and this might give them a slight advantage, at least with anyone very anxious to see this (and I highly suggest it). Feel bad this holiday.

Sony's Chairman of Marketing & Distribution, Jeff Blake, comments: "This is one of the busiest times of the year for moviegoing and we can't wait to share this outstanding thriller with audiences all over the world. We feel that by opening for night-time shows on December 20th, fans of the book will be given the perfect opportunity to get a jump start on the release of an exceptional film." I've seen it twice now and will certainly agree that it's an exceptional film, just not for everyone, if that wasn't already evident in all of the trailers and marketing. Fincher's take on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stars Rooney Mara as hacker researcher Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist. Let us know if you catch it next week!

To be honest, it doesn't exactly have 'hit movie' written all over it. I hope it didn't cost too much to remake.
