New “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” trailer offers nearly four minutes of exposition and intrigue

Based on an international bestseller, directed by David Fincher with music by Trent Reznor, and starring Daniel Craig and Mara Rooney, this winter’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” has quite a bit to live up to. After a potentially leaked teaser trailer, a clandestine Tumblr blog and a slew of still images, we now finally have a full trailer on which to base our rampant speculation and early judgment.

Unlike that earlier teaser, which mostly went for atmosphere and tone, while blaring a particularly badass Reznor and Karen O. cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” the new video is more of a traditional trailer, with dialogue and everything. Clocking in at over three and a half minutes, the trailer has enough exposition to clear things up for even those completely unaware of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” series.

While we have our issues with the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” novel, the sensational nature of the mystery should help the story adapt particularly well to film, especially with David Fincher at the helm. Some of the book’s more arbitrary twists and turns can easily be glossed over with a stylish approach and driving Reznor soundtrack.

What do you think about the newest “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” trailer? Does it have you excited for the film, or like us, are you mostly just disappointed it didn’t have another Zeppelin cover? Tell us in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
