Sony’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo didn’t exactly set cinema screens alight with its box office performance earlier in the year. It did enough, $232 million in global box office, to have people working on the follow-up The Girl Who Played With Fire (writer Steven Zallian is busy typing away) but Sony seem in no rush to get it made.

Look, I’m not going to lie to you. I probably would have zero interest in Brian De Palma’s latest feature, Passion, if it wasn’t for Noomi Rapace starring in it. It’s totally unprofessional to reveal so, but I have a massive crush on Ms Rapace. I just think she’s… awesome. Anyway, we’ve gotten ahold of some brand new pics from the film and it’s probably a good idea if we checked them out. Read more »
Fincher has nearly always taken the same care with his DVD covers/artwork as he has with his films. His Fight Club brown paper package will always be a favourite of mine, as is the creepy letter cover to Zodiac. These things, I feel, add immeasurably to the film experience and I’m glad that Fincher dares to give attention to such things. Read more »
Okay, I’m gonna come right out and say it – I don’t have a lot of love for the Mission Impossible series. If it’s action-packed espionage spy thrillery stuff I want, then I’ll watch the Bourne trilogy. I don’t think I’ve seen the first M.I. film since I rented it on VIDEO. Mission Impossible 2 soiled my eyes and mind with its awfulness. Heck, I haven’t even bothered catching up with Mission Impossible 3. So, why the heck am I reviewing Ghost Protocol? Because I love you, that’s why. Read more »
I have to admit, I really didn’t think we’d be writing all that much about The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo after the release of the US version. I mean, it’s great (see my review here), but everything has been pretty much covered, hasn’t it? Apparently not. Nope, you see, DC want in on Stieg Larsson’s moneyspinner too, and their adult off-shoot, Vertigo, is producing a graphic novel for each the Millennium trilogy. Wanna see the cover? Read more »

The Weekly Ricochet is a round-up of those stories that, while interesting, don’t quite merit a page all of their own. This week we have little titbits on the Skyfall, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, Man Of Steel, Haywire, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Read more »
A simple question hangs over David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - What’s the point? After the critically lauded adaption of Stieg Larsson’s multi-million selling Millennium trilogy, do we need another version of the franchise? Is the investment of a major Hollywood studio and the level of talent that brings enough to justify its existence?
As the year comes to an end, those lucky bastards at The New York Times Magazine have managed to get together a collection of the year’s most notable stars for a special video gallery entitled “A Touch Of Evil”. A gallery where each of those shining examples of humanity have chosen a theme and character to portray their inner-villain. Let’s take a look.
We’ll start with Rooney Mara because I like her best. Read more »
