Will Lisbeth's Bisexuality Get Good Play in Fincher's 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?' NEW Trailer

Will Lisbeth's Bisexuality Get Good Play in Fincher's  'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?' NEW Trailer

While there’s still no release date, we are getting closer to seeing David Fincher’s interpretation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo played out with a brand new trailer that actually features dialogue and more of Rooney Mara’s Lisbeth Salander! Plus, Lisbeth gets to kiss a girl in the trailer. Here’s hoping that Fincher’s film hews closer to focusing on the girl / girl part of Lisbeth’s bisexuality than director Niels Arden Oplev’s original Swedish film did. Stieg Larsson’s blockbuster novel illustrated a significant relationship between Lisbeth and Miriam Wu (played by Elodie Yung) in the new film, which would be wonderful to see played out more fully in Fincher’s film. It is worth mentioning however that the second film in the trilogy The Girl Who Played with Fire did feature a strong Lisbeth / Miriam storyline.

With a scheduled release date of Dec. 21, 2011, we are getting closer to seeing David Fincher’s interpretation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo played out with a brand new trailer that actually features dialogue and more of Rooney Mara’s Lisbeth Salander!

Now, I realize that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo purists are none too keen on an American remake, and I’m admittedly a big fan of the original film, but Mara – while not quite as fetching in the role as Noomi Rapace, does appear to exhibit some fearsome tendencies and a pretty decent accent.  But the real rub is that Fincher, who knows his way around moody, dark and gritty films including Fight Club, Seven, Zodiac and even The Social Network really appears to be the right director for the job.

But don’t take my word for it. Watch the trailer and see what you think. Did I mention that Robin Wright and Joely Richardson are also in the cast? Those are two plusses right there.
