Here’s the Leaked “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” Trailer (Has Fincher Thanked Arentz?)

Here's the Leaked "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" Trailer (Has Fincher Thanked Arentz?)

This is the shivery-good red-band international teaser trailer to Columbia Pictures’ “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” Among the many things that it has going for it are a magnificent Trent Reznor-Karen O cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” and and the coolest tagline I’ve seen in a long time: “The Feel-Bad Movie of Christmas.” That is counterprogramming taken to high art.

While this mega-budget David Fincher studio remake bears little resemblance to indie filmmaking and our posting it could generate accusations of traffic whoring (full disclosure: Yes), let’s not forget who got the Stieg Larsson party started in the US: Ed Arentz’s teeny-tiny Music Box Films, which acquired the original Swedish trilogy for distribution. Not only did it introduce Noomi Rapace to American audiences, the foreign-language “Millennium Trilogy” made $22 million in the U.S.

So, here’s the teaser trailer as well as the original trailer — and here’s hoping that the increased interest in Lisbeth Salander only means more bank for Team Arentz.
