    David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo gets a new poster, and while impressive, it does look somewhat familiar. Check out the full poster below, along with one from Martha Marcy May Marlene's marketing campaign (MMMM is currently in theaters). We like them both.

    Branch by Branch: Debating Oscars for Moneyball, Girl with Dragon Tattoo, TOH vs. Awards Daily

    Every so often New Yorker Thelma Adams (ex-critic of Us Magazine now at AMC's filmcritic.com) invites me to debate various Oscar topics with her and D.C.-based Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today), LA Oscar blogger Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) and Seattle's Kim Voynar (MovieCityNews).

    Oscar Powers Netflix's Top Ten Most-Rented List

    Netflix's ten most-rented list of all time (list below) reminds us of the long-tail Power of Oscar. And it should remind Netflix, as it splits its DVD and streaming business and alienates many of its customers who are used to relying on its deep long-tail arcania, that their solid customer base is s...

    Fincher Talks Dragon Tattoo With Empire: Lisbeth Salander is Not A Superhero

    Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig cover Empire magazine. In this photo, Mara takes a subservient position to Craig (again), as opposed to the Swedish poster. Consider the power dynamics: squatting vs. being on one's knees and standing vs. sitting.

    Trailer Watch: Long-form Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Looks Good, Lacks Edge

    David Fincher's long form trailer for December 21's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is here, and it's a testament to just how good the teaser trailer is (also below). In this case, less is more, with emphasis on how instead of what. The new trailer reveals practically the entire plot (which many of us know well by now, anyway), as well as Rooney Mara's Swedish accent and her lack of Noomi Rapace intensity. Sure, she looks the part, but we're still on the fence. We aren't as impressed as ThePlaylist, but it does look significantly more polished than the Swedish version of the novel. We can't wait to experience this feel bad movie of Christmas ...
