Okay, okay. There HAVE been a lot of movie posts lately. But can I help it if all the good movie news is breaking simultaneously? And besides, I just can’t resist when it comes to the Millennium Trilogy. I love, love, love this story. I love the character of Lisbeth. The books made me think about so many things: violence against women, human trafficking, mental health, politics and business, etc.
A lot of people have complained that Hollywood is remaking a film that already has a perfectly good Swedish version (the books were written by a Swedish author, and are naturally set in Sweden as well). Still, as an AVID lover of the book series (and someone who tends to over-indulge in things she loves), I am totally okay with seeing another version of the film. The Swedish version was excellent. Even so, I have my critiques and will be interested to see how Hollywood’s version compares.
But enough of my rambling. Have you read the books? Have you seen the Swedish films? What do you think of the trailer? Sound off in the comments!
P.S: Have you seen the Social Network? Rooney Mara, who plays the girlfriend of Mark Zuckerberg, is Lisbeth in this version. Talk about a transformation!
