Journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Craig) is aided in his search for a woman who has been missing for forty years by Lisbeth Salander (Mara), a young computer hacker.
I actually watched a trailer last week for this film and thought it was a fan made one, turns out it was the red band trailer as well. This green band trailer is not much different, just some nudity and more violent scenes cut out.
In all honesty though I am really not too fused on this trailer at all, I think the music is too much and so many different clips are shown. I’ve read the book so have more of an idea what is going on, but what about the audience who haven’t read the book or heard about them. (Which I would have thought would be a lot) – The trailer doesn’t really tell them anything about the film. I’m assuming another trailer will be released as well, building on this one? Well I hope so!
Just when I thought no poster would get me excited like the constant release of Harry Potter posters, the first posters are released for ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’. I was a very big fan of the book (and have the Swedish version on DVD to watch). Very curious how they are going to do this film with the subject matters and it being so mainstream. Plus I do love Daniel Craig!
The first pictures of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander have been circulating the web recently. Has to be said that Mara looks totally different (which was to be expected). I am sure plenty more set pictures will be around for this film!
After a few weeks of speculation and having nearly ever actress in Hollywood linked to the role of Lisbeth Salander for the Hollywood 2011 version of the millennium trilogy. It has been announced that relatively unknown actress Rooney Mara will be taking on the massive task of bringing Salander to the big screen in the English/American version of the franchise. Most recently Mara was in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Youth in Revolt. I am finding it quite positive that she is quite an unknown quantity as it should make it easier to bring Salander to life.
Mara joins Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgard and Robin Wright Penn who have been cast in the film thus far. I am still looking forward to see who will be in the more minor yet important roles in the film.
Daniel Craig has been confirmed as Mikael Bromkvist in the Hollywood version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and now the attention will be turning to who will play the part of Lisabeth Salander! And this is exactly what this blog post is going to have a look into, who has already been linked with the part and who would be the best choice. All of the actresses who have been linked with the role are young and have quite a lot of critical acclaim towards them. However, for each actress that I will be looking at for the role none of them have ever played a character anything like Salander. I’m not saying that Salander is common by no means, she is a very complex character tough, rather kick ass and has an attitude. When you see the actresses considered for the role you will understand that they have not done that type of role which makes this all so much more difficult to try and imagine them being a very strong woman. Who has to endure a lot but then gets to have her revenge as well. It is going to be a very difficult and challenging role for whoever is lucky enough to get the part!
Noomi Rapace who took on the task of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version’s of the triology has ruled herself out of this film stating that she is quite simply done with the character. Understandable really as she won’t have enough ‘star power’ for a mainstream film which will attract the audiences.
