      I can't see it working at all. Noomi rapace spent 7 months before film on a strict diet, kickboxing and getting real piercings. She says in an interview that she became the character, went home very angry while filing. This is what the story needs and i don't think the US version or Rooney Mara will be able to pull this off.

      Rooney Mara will not, I repeat will not be able to come close to Noomi Rapace's performances...why even try?? I mean honestly people, it'll be the exact same movie in a way only in english..learn how to f*****g read subtitles from the real orgin of the movie..Sweden where the books came from. I have no issue reading subtitles and understanding the film, you shuldnt either. I will boycott this bs film, never will i see it

      Why does Hollywood always presume it can do things better. Noomi was born to play Salander and having the film set in Sweden and played by Swedish actors only adds to its authenticity and charm. Hollywood it may surprise you to find,that most people have no difficulty reading subtitles and following a film. So please, please stop dumbing down and remaking perfectly good films, because you are running out of origional ideas!!

      WHY??? The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was amazing, who needs an english language version? Whats wrong with David Fincher, he's a brilliant driector, Seven and Zodiac will tell you that but lately something seems to have happened to him, first the extremely poor The Social Network which is just an awful, awful film and now this? Again, WHY???

      Why do we need a US remake? Can we not read? its only subtitles. Noomi Rapace's perfomance in these films are amazing. She is Lisbeth Salander its a swedish film not american. Rooney Mara is good. But Noomi Rapace is OUTSTANDING! Best international film.

      For this to have such a quick release after Sweden's brilliant efforts, this is just an insult. It's like pointing to a whole country and saying: "Your filmaking wasn't up to standard, we can't stand hearing your language and reading english subs and your talent is just not Hollywood. But we're gonna steal the story."

      Why are people so adamant that someone who looked nothing like the girl in the book cannot be replaced

      Because Tim, the film version that is already out there best encompasses the book. It is insulting that American studios feel the need to redo everything for the blind masses that cannot even read subtitles LET ALONE the actual book. Hope that cleared it up for you.

      I'm sure that the Hollywood remake will completely destroy the millennium trilogy's good name but you can't blame them for trying. and by the way is Daniel Craig playing Blomkvist?

      Why do we need an American remake? Aren't us Americans perfectly capable of watching subtitles? Also, the U.S. trailer was awful. It was epileptic and jarring.

      ...now, correct me if I'm wrong... but the original Millennium films were shot as two 90 minute made-for-television films? I agree whole-heartedly that remaking a film, for no better reason than to lose the subtitles, represents all that's bad about western viewing habits. However, this is not what is happening. Fincher will be the 'first' person to make a 'film' based on The Girl with Dragon Tattoo and, in doing so, brings the element of production values and specificity. It would be easy to cut, for example, 'Dexter' into a two hour film. It would be enjoyable, well acted and would have value in itself... but it would not have the specificity of a 'cinematic experience'. Fincher is a highly competent director. If you haven't seen 'Social Network' or his masterpiece 'Zodiac' I would recommend these films to you. I also recommend that you see 'his' film 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'... I doubt you will be disappointed.

      I've seen the Swedish adaptaion and loved it. Personally, I can't wait to see this take on the book. I don't think that the film should be judged in any way before it's even been released, at least wait until it's out and then comment, it may surprise you - it might actually be good. Also note that according to IMDB, the production company Yellow Bird, who produced the 2009 film, are also featured as producers of this version...just saying (I stand to be corrected should this actually turn out to be false). If this is the case, have some faith it will be at least some what decent. I do feel that this version is coming too soon after the 2009 version and also agree that subtitles are not hard to read, at the end of the day, be thankful that more people will be exposed (even if it turns out to be an awful adaptaion) to the great story and genius of Larson.

      Not sure why everyone made a big deal of the original trilogy. 1st and 2nd films were 7/10. Good, but not 5 stars. The 3rd film was a 5/10 for me. From the looks of the trailer for Fincher's updated version, it seems he has improved it. I can't judge the film until I have seen it, but I am guessing Fincher will make it better.

      dalidab1982- David Fincher is one of the greatest directors around right now. I see you mentioned his first film (Alien 3) and yes it wasn't a great movie but since it was his first film the studio had more control over the movie than he did. He's made so many brilliant movies such as The Social Network, Seven, Fight Club and Zodiac. I think it's too early to remake this film but I'm sure it will still be great.

      I just had to comment on this. I, like the majority of people who watch movies like to watch the movie not read the movie. If I wanted to read something I'd pick up a book.

      Can't wait to see what Fincher does. This is the perfect film for him to do any experimental visual art to this one! A perfect playground for him to play with this one!

      "Noomi rapace spent 7 months before film on a strict diet, kickboxing and getting real piercings." Rooney has lost weight too, had pierced her body a lot and she plucked her eyebrows. I'm glad that rooney got the role because she looks closer to the book descriptions of the Lisbeth than Noomi. I'm waiting to see both versions the swedish one and the american one to compare performances but if you compare what Rooney did to look like lisbeth, with what Jennifer lawrence DIDN'T DO to look like Katniss (upcoming hunger games movie) you will see why I think rooney is doing great. Jlaw didn't even die her hair black, nor lose a couple of pounds nor got a fake tan.

      f*****g love Fincher (Fight Club is by 2nd favourite movie of all time!) but I do wonder how this will differ from the original (aside from being in a different language and probably transplanted in Chicago or some other random, non-plot essential city)...
