Interesting that there's apparently a fourth manuscript out there that will unfortunately probably never see the light of day due to the problems with his the Larsson estate. I am finding this second book much more interesting than the first. Maybe because there's a lot more action. I love it when Lisbeth and Mikael communicate via his computer that she's hacked. LOL!

Funny you mentioned Wikipedia because I just read that on Wikipedia when I was telling my kid about the books.

I just saw the 1st movie on Mother's Day. It was excellent but not nearly as in depth as the book. I can't wait to see the other 2.

I just hope one day we can at least get a 4th book out of the estate. :rip:

They can never make a movie as good as a great book, but these were good movies. And I loved the cast, especially Blumquist and Lisbeth. Naomi Rapace rocks!

Yes, and the actors are Swedish as well. I thought they were extremely well done. I have no desire to see an American version.

The first DVD had the option to listen to it dubbed in English with or without English subtitles. We watched it 'without' the English subtitles but dubbed in English. ;)

Yes, I saw the first one in the movie with subtitles but listened to the others in English. They are really good movies, and I doubt the American versions will be anywhere near as good.

Why do you guys think the American version/versions won't be as good as the Swedish ones? It seems rather unanimous.

I've only seen the first movie on blu-ray with subtitles. I doubt the USA version will be as good as how can they keep the same locations with English speaking actors. Also since the people in the original are unknown I see characters and not actors, which is a problem I tend to have with some movies.

Shaky hand-held video from a theatre screening (and unauthorized, so I could see youtube having to pull it before long, maybe), but... here's the first trailer for Fincher's GWTDT.

Thanks Dax.

I loved the ending "The feel bad movie of Christmas". I'm sure I'll see it but once again nothing can compare to the books and my twisted vision. B-)

For one thing tha actors look like real people. I don't think there was a micron of botox or Juvederm in the entire cast. They looked like people this could be happening to, and they were great actors as well. Rapace is brilliant as Salander and the guy who played Bloomquist was excellent as well. I don't know who has been cast for the US movie but I am sure they will be the same frozen faced tooth laminated crop we usually get.

The movie was dark and gritty too, Sweden is a bitch in the winter. Wonder if they can carry that as well. We'll see.

Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara.

Craig might do, I do not know the woman. The trailer did look good. I am sure I will see it no matter what the reviews are as I am totally hooked on the series.

Fincher wanted a relative unknown, over all the names that wanted it bad and pushed themselves hard for it... (he did work with her a little bit on his last film - she's got a small role in The Social Network). She was in the recent remake of Nightmare on Elm Street.

I saw the trailer, didn't like the sound score....just too over-the top for that movie. It did look dark..that was fine. Didn't see enough to make a comment about the acting.

I like that she is a relative unknown actor. I didn't want someone like Angelina Jolie or someone like that to take it and then you sit there and cannot believe it is Lisbeth. I sort of liked the harsh sound track for a triler but would not want it through out the movie.
Craig was OK as I really have not seen a ton of him, I don't think of him as "James Bond", he has theat somewhat weary look that the Swede did.

Big article on Larssen (sp), in Vanity Fair. Haven't read it yet but they usually do a good job.

I read the article in VF, is a memior from the girlfiend. Touching but not too deep. Said he was really active in women's rights and other social issues. He worked like a dog, ate poorly and chain smoked. He felt sick early in the day and a friend wanted to take him to the hospital but he declined. Later that day they walked up 7 flights of stairs for an interview (in a place that had no elevator) and that is when he went into full blown arrest and died shortly after.

He had a signed will leving her everything but it was not notarized or witnessed so the dad and brother got it all.

For some reason I could not post on friend's computer, but anyhow, thanks for that. Looks good. I have been cynical about the American remake but have to say this young woman could be OK and even Craig has potential.

OMG, the trailer looks awesome......it gave me chills! So I'm at the end of the third book, Salander's trial just started. I think this last book was my fave in the series. I'm going REALLY slow now because I don't want it to end. I will miss these characters. :(

BL--so sorry I missed this but hey, nothing like an answer to your question three months later! Yes, I thought X-Men First Class was fabulous. Kevin Bacon was a fantastic villain, that foreign dude who plays Magneto (it's been so long I can't remember his name) was REALLY good, a scene stealer. I would watch it again in a heartbeat and that's rare for me these days.

Just saw Dream House (if you are really interested, wait for the dvd to come out or see it on demand. No need to hurry with this one) which was much more notable for the previews of Girl with The Dragon Tatoo (I think I might enjoy it---in English instead of subtitles. Don't get me wrong: I enjoy movies with subtitles, but think it might be nice to enjoy this thriller without the distraction of subtitles) and also for a complete change of pace: Tower Heist with Ben Stiller, Alan Alda, and Eddie Murphy. Am only hoping that all the best parts haven't been spoiled in the trailer.

Two good articles in todays NY Times. One regarding Fincher and his being worried that fans of the book won't like his version of the movie. They say a million people called him with casting ideas, he did not want a well known actor for Lisbeth (I agree).

Then an article about Naomi Rapace (Lisbeth #1) who said she did not want the role (who really knows), she was done with the character and is in a couple of new US films, one Alien like directed by Ridley Scott. Interesting as the pix in the Times, she almost looked a bit like a young Weaver....

Naomi Rapace is in the new Sherlock Holmes (A Game of Shadows, out Dec. 16!) with Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr.

I think that she could be a good choice to play a Ripley like character in an Alien film. Will have to see re: the new Sherlock Holmes film. In the previews, she looks not quite right, in some way, a little out of place.

Definitely easy to believe Rapace did not want to do it again. Yeah, she's in the Sherlock Holmes sequel (oops, was posting at the same time as tgir) and Scott's Prometheus, which looks to be super-awesome...

I've ordered the box set of the extended (tv-film edits, shown in two parts each, runtime quite a bit longer than the theatrical releases) of the Swedish trilogy. I'll probably watch Fincher's first one first, though. It looks great.
