Finally! A Movie Trailer that Doesn’t Scream “MOVIE TRAILER!”
The whole Girl with the Dragon Tattoo phenomenon was one of those things that kind of came and went without me caring. I heard good buzz about the book and even better buzz about the Swedish films, but I still didn’t really care that much. Not that I have anything against it, it’s just that I already have a huge stack of both books and movies sitting around my apartment that I need to get to first.
That being said, this trailer really blew me away:
Watching it on a computer monitor really doesn’t do it justice. In a dark theater with booming speakers, it comes across as a full on assault on the senses. Yes, I understand that it’s nothing more than a glorified music video of sorts, but I love it when studios realize that the trailer to a film can be so much more than just clips of Adam Sandler getting smacked in the crotch set to bad voice-over. The upcoming Muppets film did it a few weeks back with their first teaser, and now this. Keep it up, Hollywood.
