The proverbial “belt” might have to be tightened to better meet diminished expectations for adaptations of Steig Larsson’s second and third book, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest and The Girl Who Played with Fire. Reports at the time of Dragon’s release suggested that Mara and Daniel Craig locked in for sequels, but Fincher had not, and might not be interested in the time commitment if he has to scale down his vision for financial reasons.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Won't Be Released In India Because Fincher Refuses To Censor His Work The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Won't Be Released In India Because Fincher Refuses To Censor His Work
There is a lot of harsh content in David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. There are scenes of brutal violence, rape, torture, nudity and everything else that the MPAA tries to shield from us on a daily basis. Somewhat surprisingly, though, the ratings board never even threatened to slap the movie with the dreaded NC-17, which would have forced the director to make cuts and edits that weren't part of his original vision.

"I've never done a project based on something as well-known as this." That might sound surprising coming from a screenwriter like Steven Zaillian, whose credits this year alone include an adaptation of the bestseller Moneyball, and also wrote the screenplays for American Gangster and Schindler's List. But The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is no ordinary book adaptation

Guaranteed, this will be the creepiest thing you see online today. Two years ago, relative newcomer Noomi Rapace set the standard for playing Lisbeth Salander - the androgynous goth computer hacker who Stieg Larsson introduced in his best-selling Millennium trilogy - and few thought another actress could play her as effectively… until Rooney Mara reinvented the role for David Fincher’s American adaptation of the familiar material.

By all accounts every sacrifice paid off-- even the film's weaker reviews single Mara out, and though she says she's "shot myself in the leg" in finding equally worthwhile projects to do next, she's suddenly a very big deal when a year ago few people knew her name.

Women, especially those over 25, are hugely likely to have kids, and the commitment of hiring a babysitter so they can go see Dragon Tattoo is far more significant than reading 20 pages of the book at a time before bed.

This really is a smart move. As Blake explained, next week is a crazy time for new releases, with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and The Adventures of Tintin also set to come out on December 21st. While it's not much of a buffer, why not take advantage of the fact that fans of Stieg Larsson's books and David Fincher want to see the movie as early as they can? It may not end up having the biggest impact on the movie's box office totals, but it's still a good plan.

Long movie run-times can be both a blessing and a curse. For starters, they can have direct impact on the box office because theaters can't have as many screenings and if left in incapable hands, a two and a half hour movie can feel like an eternity. The positive side, however, is that no matter how many advertisements come out, it's hard to spoil the film.
