Over the weekend a bootleg copy of the international redband trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of Stieg Larsson's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo hit the web sending the internet dwelling world in to a fervor. Was it planted by Sony? Is this subversive marketing to fit with the book trilogy's themes? Is Trent Reznor turning in to a relevant musical force again? Wait, is that side boob? Yes, yes it is. It's always nice to be reminded how not every country has ridiculously uptight rules when it comes to sex and nudity and Google searches. I mean look at the international poster, visible pierced nipples. *waits for Brinks truck*
As for the US version of the trailer, which similarly features Trent Reznor and Karen O's cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song", I'll have to go with "looks incredibly promising" and would like to thank Mr. Fincher for returning to the kind of suspense that has people dying instead of figuring out how to disperse money amongst rich guys that went to Harvard.
