Watch the Final 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' 8 Minute Trailer

Have you read the ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ trilogy by Stieg Larsson? If not, you really should as they are wonderful books – a bit on the disturbing side at times and not intended for a younger audience. But these wonderful books were made into Swedish movies over the last several years, leading to the obvious question – why do we need a Hollywood version?

Technically we don’t, at least of the first book: the Swedish version was quite well done. The other two were rather lacking, to be honest. But there were definite areas for improvement, and I think for most people the enduring images still comes from the book rather than the film – so David Fincher looks to make his mark on the trilogy.

And judging by this 8-minute extended trailer, I would say he is on the right path. Daniel Craig seems much better suited to the characterization of Blomquist from the book than Michael Nyquist, and the atmosphere and action are all tense and perfectly done – and nicely accompanied by Trent Reznor once again!

Check out the final trailer for the film – and let us know what you think about the books, the Swedish movies, and the upcoming Fincher film.
