If you went to the cinema to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo you would of seen this amazing opening sequence if not click play and watch one of the weirdest but brilliant opening sequences of a movie i have seen in a while
Warning about the latest Girl With A Dragon Tattoo trailer, the one for David Fincher’s remake. It runs for 3:40 (that’s longer than the gargantuan trailer for Avatar!) and even though i’ve not seen the original movies, as a fan of Fincher was highly anticipating seeing this, they’ve shown far too much stuff in it I RECOMMEND AVOIDING IT ENTIRELY, instead, watch this teaser trailer which is extremely well edited, has a great soundtrack, and shows a lot with very little, but gets me a lot more excited rather than angry which the new one did.
