UK Trailer Released for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, based on the novel by Stieg Larsson

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Momentum Pictures recently released the first English-language trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, based on the bestselling novel by Stieg Larsson. The film, in Swedish with English subtitles, is scheduled to be in US theaters this March.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish title: Män som hatar kvinnor, literally "Men Who Hate Women") is the first in a trilogy of thrillers by the late author. The second novel, The Girl Who Played with Fire (Swedist title: Flickan som lekte med elden) was published in the US last summer while the third and final novel in the trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Swedish title: Luftslottet som sprängdes), is scheduled for US publication this May.

All three books have been adapted for film in Sweden. Original English-language adaptations of the trilogy are in development.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film synopsis (from the studio): Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist (played by Michael Nyqvist) and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger's are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

  1. This is a great film - I found that I got so involved in it that I could easily follow the story and barely noticed the sub-titles. If you have enjoyed the books you should enjoy the film.
