We’ve seen the 4-minute trailer, and now Sony seems to be determined to sneak David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo into the public domain 4 minutes at a time with this extended 8-minute trailer. We thought that the 4-minute trailer was already giving too much away, so watch this at your own peril.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the first film in Columbia Pictures’ three-picture adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s literary blockbuster The Millennium Trilogy. Directed by David Fincher and starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, the film is based on the first novel in the trilogy, which altogether have sold 50 million copies in 46 countries and become a worldwide phenomenon. The screenplay is by Steven Zaillian.
In related news, Trent Reznor released 6 free tracks from his soundtrack with Atticus Finch last week, and preorders of the soundtrack allow you to download that awesome Karen O cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” immediately. This is something that you need to do.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is released in on 21 December 2011 in the US, and in Australia on 12 January 2012 from Sony.
