// David Fincher’s ‘Girl‘ trailer arrives online… shrouded in mystery.
Yesterday a trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was apparently “leaked” ono the web. The trailer which was apparently accompanying film releases in Europe is cloaked in a mystery getting touched up by an enigma. Supposedly it’s a pirate copy, but despite this is surprisingly good quality with no background noise, plus if you notice at the start of the trailer it has the MPAA red-band warning at the start of it. Why the hell would European audiences care about this? There’s also nudity (sweet), which means a decision to leak onto YouTube means a greater pick up than if it was hosted on an official site where an age restriction gate would be present. The guerilla style trailer would fit extremely well with the character of Salander who is a massive renegade and makes the internet her bitch in the books.
There is buzz around the web suggesting that this was leaked by a Sony marketer. I’d say this is a fair shout, especially as the leaked trailer has been up for some time on YouTube and Sony have not yet filed a complaint against it.
The plot thickens. I will report back with anything else I find. For now, enjoy the trailer below.
Synopsis: A journalist is aided in his search for a woman who has been missing — or dead — for forty years by a young female hacker.
The new version stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara as the titular ‘Girl’
