    I don't like the photo. She looks too manufactured. I hope in the actual film, that Salander will look more like the book describes.

    I also think the blood on her hands is ridiculous. Granted I"m only halfway through Plays with Fire, but she hasn't killed anyone yet that we've confirmed. Why do they make her out to be a villain?

    I don't like it either for the exact reasons clarie mentioned.

    Manufactured is a good word for it. The hair looks too freshly cut and styled and the face too soft. I understand the make-up is an attempt to create more angles and sharpness, but to me, it just looks like make-up.

    My mental picture of Lisbeth is Katia Gordeeva gone punk. I thought the character was supposed to be incongruous – a doll like figure who could kick ass. The women in the above photo looks too tough to me.
    What would Jenny do?

    To be fair, ther Swedish version of the film did the same thing - Rapace's Salander was far more clean and "produced" looking than I's pictured from the books.

    I do think the blood on the hands was silly.

    Oh x infinity. I really need to scrub that image from my mind.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    True, but Rapace did look more rumpled and a lot less polished to me than this photo.

    I think Rapace was spot on, exactly how I pictured Salander.

    It is just a photo shoot for a magazine cover. It isn't as if she is going to be running around in the entire movie with blood on her hands and her hair in this exact same style. The blood on her hands is most surely metaphoric, no?

    I agree. Rooney Mara looks good, but I just can't see her owning the role like Rapace. I just keep telling myself that it's a David Fincher movie and I will love it.

    I just watched The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest and really liked it. I didn't notice I was lost and I didn't read the books. However, maybe it is a matter of not knowing that I don't know certain things, ignorance is bliss. Anyway, I liked this movie more than the 2nd one which I actually found much more difficult to follow. I need to get the books.

    I haven't read the third book yet, but I found the second book hard to follow. I have the movie coming today from Netflix, so we'll see.

    Any comments on the new GWTDT? I really liked Rooney's acting. She did a great job. Even though she isn't as "beautiful" as Noomi I found her quite beautiful in her own way.

    I am also curious to hear what people think. Almost everyone I know who has seen the film has not seen the original. I don't know if that is because people who saw the originals didn't go to see the new one or if they just didn't care enough to talk about it afterwards. I saw the original so I doubt I will pay $10 to see the remake, will wait for Redbox.

    I loved Noomi so much in the Swedish version...she had so much depth. I have seen photos of our USA version, and I have to admit that this Lisbeth looks younger and not as...interesting...but that is not fair. I will see the movie, but I have to admit loving the originals so much-I hope they haven't "Hollywooded" the story too much. Bless the child that plays Lisbeth in this version. She's going to be under a microscope.

    I want to see the new one too but it's not in the cards for quite some time. Will be good to hear what you guys think--is it worth it?

    I agree. I think the Hollywood movie will do well as a lot of people don't like sub-titles, but having seen the Swedish version, I think it'll be a tougher sell to convince me that the Hollywood version is as good or better. (shrug)

    The Swedish version I watched yesterday did not have sub-titles, it was dubbed with spoken English. I started "The Girl Who Played With Fire" yesterday. It had sub-titles. There is a world of difference watching the two.

    Hopefully, I'll get to see the American "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo over the Holidays. I'll write a comparison as soon as I do. After seeing Noomi Rapace's Lisbeth Salander I think that Rooney Mara has a tough, tough act to follow.

    We'll see soon enough.

    Now that is too bad. I've seen all 3 and they all had sub-titles. The last one is particularly effective with sub-titles rather than too much dialogue, and Rapace is very good as Salander. As a side, she's in the new Sherlock Holmes movie with Downey, anyone seen that?
