With Hollywood looking for franchises wherever it can find them, it seems mighty odd that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a highly successful novel with a film adaptation that had Rooney Mara, David Fincher, and James Friggin’ Bond attached, is not already swimming in sequels. The American version of Stieg Larsson’s novel wasn’t exactly a blockbuster, but it made $233 million worldwide on a $90 million budget. It seems like a no-brainer.
Now there’s talk from THR that a sequel could arrive soon enough, but Sony is debating the possibility of turning Larsson’s last two books, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, into a single film.

In honour of the film’s anniversary, we picked out the top ten Disney songs of all-time. It was incredibly hard to pick one song from each movie, and even more difficult to just pick ten songs altogether. Where will Pinocchio fall on the list, and what song did we pick? Based on the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, "I've Got No Strings" might have a fighting chance.
Here they are -- Disney's ten best songs:
10. “Heigh-Ho” from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Disney’s very first ear-worm, the end-of-the-workday sing-along from the Snow White’s mining companions was one of the earliest examples that Disney’s features could not only keep the kids entertained but produce timeless musical moments. Our apologies if this gets stuck in your head, »
