I had the TV on this morning while reading my e-mail when I was surprised by a movie trailer for the U.S. version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. Take a look:
I think it looks pretty good, and the casting looks pretty good (though the actress playing Lisbeth is too tall, a common Hollywood mistake), but I really think it was totally unnecessary to remake this movie because the Swedish version was excellent (with even better casting). I guess some people won't watch a movie with subtitles.
Anyway, it is due out on 12/21/11 (much sooner than I expected), and I will definitely go see it, since I loved the books.
What do you think?
(NOTE: I also posted the new movie trailer for The Hunger Games adaptation on Great Books for Kids and Teens.)
