Hurrah! Now that I’m done reading the first book in the Millennium trilogy, I can freely surf the web without the fear of accidentally reading spoilers. :)
I watched Youtube clips from the original big screen adaptation (Män Som Hatar Kvinnor) and I have to admit, I saw more of Lisbeth Salander in Rooney Mara than in the Swedish actress Noomi Rapace. Looks-wise, at least. It’s been years since the movie was shown, but the internet is still giving its virtual standing ovation for Rapace, reporting that she played Salander’s role to perfection. Only a few believed that Mara can surpass or even equal her performance. Let’s see about that.
As for the actor for Mikael Blomkvist, my vote goes to Daniel Craig (looks-wise again). I have nothing against the Swedish actor, but I thought the financial journalist described in the book is a tad more…dashing and suave. You know what I mean. Anyway, I can’t judge the flicks yet because I haven’t watched either, but I’m already having high hopes for the Hollywood adaptation. You know why? Because director David Fincher is on the helm to remake the film!
I totally loved Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and The Social Network. Fincher’s take on darkish movies are jaw-dropping in their bizarre tastefulness. It seems like Fincher has a thing for hackers too (ehem, Mark Zuckerberg). And speaking of The Social Network, I just learned that the girl who played Zuckerberg’s scorned ex-girlfriend Erica Albright is none other than Rooney Mara!
Anyway, here are the photos gathered from Tumblr. Be warned, some of them are NSFW-ish.
And of course, how can we forget the trailer?
I can't wait! I hope this movie will make Christmas this year extra-amazing.
