Film Review: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)

25 December 2011 2:00 AM, PST | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo (2011) Film Review, a movie directed by David Fincher and starring Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, Robin Wright, Stellan SkarsgardChristopher Plummer, Max von Sydow, Joely Richardson, David Dencik, Joel Kinnaman, Embeth Davidtz, Goran Visnjic, Julian Sands, Steven Berkoff, Geraldine James, Yorick van Wageningen, and Sahlima.

David Fincher’s The Girl with the Tattoo Dragon is Matt ReevesLet Me In to Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In. It is that scenario, this time between Niels Arden Oplev and David Fincher, all over again: there is a book, its first adapted into a Swedish film (directed by Niels Arden Oplev) then its adapted into a Us film (David Fincher). And like the Let the Right One In / Let Me In scenario, the first film adaptation is far superior to the second film adaptation. In the current scenario, its even worse for the second director, »

Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, Noomi Rapace, Michael Nyqvist: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Box-Office Reunion

16 December 2011 6:34 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Noomi Rapace, Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

An unexpected Girl with the Dragon Tattoo family reunion will take place at the North American box office on Tuesday evening, when David Fincher's Swedish-set American remake (go figure) of Niels Arden Oplev's mystery thriller opens at 7 p.m. In addition to Fincher's movie, we have the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Michael Nyqvist supporting Tom Cruise in Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol and the dragon-tattooed girl herself, Noomi Rapace, supporting Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Coincidentally, both movies opened at midnight Thursday.

Here's wondering which The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo connection will top the North American box office during the Christmas holiday.

David Fincher Sides with Scott Rudin: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Rudin vs. David Denby Email Fight

6 December 2011 4:31 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Rooney Mara, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo David Fincher, director of the upcoming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and the Oscar-nominated The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network has — not unexpectedly — sided with Dragon Tattoo producer Scott Rudin in the latest email-exchange leak that has had the Web abuzz, Twitter BFFs turning into Twitter WFFs, and some wondering how much of this fracas is a publicity ploy to enhance visibility for the potential Oscar contender thriller/psychological drama starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig. Below is Fincher's take (via the Miami Herald) on the Rudin/David Denby email spat, resulting from Denby's breaking a Girl with the Dragon Tattoo review embargo in The New Yorker. I think Scott’s response was totally correct. It’s a hard thing for people outside our business to understand. It is a bit of a tempest in a teapot. »

Julian Sands and Neil Dickson on Earning the Right to Bear a Standard

3 November 2011 9:38 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

British actors Julian Sands and Neil Dickson certainly found a startling way of building the trust needed between a director and his actor. Currently they are collaborating—Sands directing and Dickson starring—on the one-man "The Standard Bearer." The piece is a 50-minute monologue by Stephen Wyatt about a Shakespearean actor on tour in West Africa, but as Sands and Dickson say, its messages are universal.Julian Sands is widely recognized in the U.S. as a star of stage (playing Tony Blair in David Hare's "Stuff Happens" at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles) and screens big ("A Room With a View," "Ocean's Thirteen") and small ("24," "Smallville"). He recently toured internationally with his one-man "A Celebration of Harold Pinter," directed by John Malkovich. Neil Dickson's career has spanned mediums and the pond. He starred in the cult "Biggles: Adventures in Time" and has appeared in such »

Ben Kingsley, Julian Sands, And Jena Malone Sign On For A Doll's House

2 November 2011 11:24 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

They say art is timeless. That may not always be true, but we can probably say this much: all art eventually becomes timely again. Case in point, Henrik Ibsen's play A Doll's House, which is being adapted and set amongst the modern economic crisis by writer/director Charles Huddleston. He's already lining up a hell of a cast, as well: Variety reports that Ben Kingsley, Julian Sands, and Jena Malone are on board for the film. Ibsen's play, originally premiered in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1879, centers around a family struggling with financial troubles and secrets that threaten to split them apart. Huddleston adapted the play along with Michele Martin (who previously co-wrote Dadgum, Texas with Huddleston). Martin is also acting in A Doll's House, playing the lead female role of Nora Helmer. Kingsley and Malone will be taking on the roles of Dr. Rank and Christine Linde, friend of Nora's. »

Ben Kingsley, Julian Sands & Jena Malone Move Into 'A Doll's House'

2 November 2011 10:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Ghandi” and “Schindler’s List” thespian Ben Kingsley is no stranger to having his name attached to more than a few projects at a time and with his supporting role in this month’s release of Martin Scorsese’s fairytale “Hugo,” and a plum role in Sacha Baron Cohen's “The Dictator” on the way for next spring, Kingsley is as busy as always. So it should come as no surprise that he's now heading up a pretty impressive cast for the big-screen adaptation of the Henrik Ibsen play “A Doll’s House.” Variety reports that Kingsley will join Julian Sands, Jena Malone and Michele… »

Casting Bits: Steve Carell in ‘Conviction’, Ben Kingsley and Jena Malone in ‘A Doll’s House’, Ryan Kwanten and Amy Smart in ’7500?

2 November 2011 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Steve Carell's been doing quite well for himself in his post-Office career. He's already got several films lined up for the next couple of years, including Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher and the magician comedy Burt Wonderstone. Now the latest addition to his slate is Conviction, a heist film which he'll produce and star in. Jonathan Herman's Black List script centers around a convicted bank robber who's forced by the FBI to entrap his former protege. Which sounds good, except that while Herman's original screenplay had a tone similar to Heat, it's now being reworked as an action comedy in the vein of 48 Hours or Ocean's Eleven. That seems like a pretty major shift, though without having read the script I can't say for certain whether it's a terrible idea. The project has yet to confirm a writer to draft a new version of the script. [Deadline [2]] After the jump, »

Malone will play a friend of Nora's who has to decide between her loyalty to Nora and her own future. Kingsley is attached for the role of Dr. Rank, a friend to the Helmers. Sands will play a professional in the seedy world of lending desperate people money.

James Franco and Others Are ‘Spring Breakers’; Ben Kingsley to Inhabit ‘A Doll’s House’; Rashida Jones ‘Decoding Annie Parker’

1 November 2011 4:59 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We’re hearing from Variety that James Franco and Harmony Korine will make their second pairing in Spring Breakers, something I would call a drama — but you never know with this guy. The film follows “four college-aged girls who rob a fast food restaurant to afford spring break in Florida, only to get arrested upon their arrival.”

Franco has been locked to play “Alien, a rapping drug and arms dealer who bails them out and entices them to kill his arch-rival, a murderer who is appropriately named Arch,” and Emma Roberts is in talks for the part of “one of the girls, Candy, a Southern brunette who feeds off danger.” Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez are also in talks (why are you looking at me like I’m joking?). Should they join, the latter will appear as “a religious girl who isn’t a thrill-seeker like the rest of the group. »

Casting Bits: Casey Affleck in Whitey Bulger Biopic, Dylan McDermott in ‘Dog Fight’, Gabriel Byrne, Rufus Sewell, and Toby Stephens in ‘All Things to All Men’

27 October 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] It was announced [2] earlier this week that Ben Affleck and longtime pal Matt Damon would reunite for a biopic about Whitey Bulger, with Casey Affleck set to co-star. We now have a more information about the younger Affleck's part. He'll be playing Bill Bugler, little brother of Whitey Bugler (Damon's role). Unlike notorious gangster Whitey, Billy was an upstanding member of society -- Korean war vet, lawyer, politician, and educator. He lost his post as the president of the University of Massachusetts in 2003 when he was found to have spoken with his fugitive brother in secret. In addition to starring, Damon will also script the film; Affleck the Elder will direct and co-star. It's unclear when exactly the picture will get off the ground, as both brothers and Damon have plenty of other projects on their plates. But they'll have to get moving if they want to beat the two »
