A lot of people were extremely happy with the teaser trailer that was released for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. But I know a lot of people who are still concerned it might be a watered down version of the story. I don't know why they would think that, did they forget David Fincher is directing the movie? This is the guy that gave us Seven and Fightclub. I honestly believe that his version of the story is even going to be more hardcore than the foreign film adaptation, which I thought were great.
Daniel Craig recently gave an interview in which he talks about Fincher's version of the film, and I think you'll be happy with what he had to say,
It's as adult as you can possibly make it. This is adult drama. I grew up, as we fucking all did, watching The Godfather and that, movies that were made for adults. And this is a $100 million R-rated movie. Nobody makes those anymore. And Fincher, he's not holding back. They've given him free rein. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, Are you fucking serious?
There's more than one way to sense violence. Much more powerful ways than seeing it step-by-step.
So there you have it. I wouldn't expect anything less from Fincher, the guy knows what he want's and I never thought he would go hold back on anything. If Craig was shocked by what he's seen, imagine what the reaction of the audience is going to be. This is such a great story, and Fincher is one of my favorite directors, so of course this is on my most anticipated movie list.
What do you all think about what Craig had to say?
