I’m not a big fan of reporting on the imminent arrival of a trailer, but I’m curious enough about David Fincher‘s new version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo that I’ll make an exception. Deadline reports that Sony has released a red-band trailer in Europe this week, which will be playing only in theaters there. Meanwhile, a green-band version should hit Thursday June 2 online and in theaters in the US.
We’ve got one early (and therefore possibly unreliable) description of the trailer after the break. Check it out to see how Led Zeppelin fits in.
One IMDB user claims to have seen the trailer and says,
So a few thoughts on this, anyone that is worried about it not following the Orginal/book can put that worry to bed. This looks to be as graphic if not more then the orginal. The trailer consists of a bunch of quick cuts of scenes from the movie. Alot of things from the Orginal that we only see in still photos and hear characters talk about are actually filmed and shown. Any worry about Rooney Mara not looking the part don’t need to worry. There is a shot in the trailer of her topless pulling on a shirt much like Noomi Rapace does in the others. Mara looks the part for sure. Skinny as Rapace, only thing it looks like they may have done is toned down the punk look some. But not a lot. Not sure what else to say other then the trailer was very intense, it was set to Led Zeppelin's 'Immigrant Song.'
It’s that last note that kills me. I can imagine a cut of Dragon Tattoo that includes that particular track, since there could be a way to make Robert Plant’s wails quite ominous, but need to see how it really plays out.
Plus, here are some replies from the comments section:
"I work at a theatre here in the US and the Red Band trailer was delivered to our theatre yesterday. It's states that it is to be played on Hangover 2 ONLY. It's an damn good teaser and got me really excited to see Fincher's version. BTW the Zeppelin song they use is actually a remix. It sounds as if Reznor remixed the track, but I highly doubt it was him, just in the same vein as a NIN remix."
"The trailer is truly amazing, a real work of art. If it doesn't make you want to see the movie, nothing will.
The music is a cover of the 'Immigrant Song' done specifically for the movie by Trent Reznor with vocals by Karen O."
