As a certified literary snob I was a little surprised how much I liked these books but Stieg Larsson managed to pen a trilogy of genuine thrillers while keeping the writing sharp and incredibly well informed, not to mention creating a pair of indelible characters in Mikael Blomkvist and of course Lisbeth Salander. The Swedish movie adaptations on the other hand went from decent to awful as the series progressed. But after seeing this teaser trailer for David Fincher’s English language reboot I have to say I’m very encouraged. As a longtime fan and the director of my favorite film of 2010 (The Social Network) I’d likely pay to see anything Fincher put on the screen but this material seems tailor-made for his dark, twisted cinematic style and it looks like whoever did the casting got everything spot on.
