New Poster of “Girl” – Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig

Here’s the ostensibly “international” version of the poster for the upcoming David Fincher remake of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”  Personally, I don’t see why a remake is necessary, given how great the Swedish films were and especially how incredible Noomi Rapace’s performance was across the trilogy.  But of course American audiences are famous for not wanting to read subtitles, hence the constant cranking out of American remakes of anything that gets big box office overseas.  Let’s just pray Fincher doesn’t butcher his source material a la “The Ring,” or similar debacles.

Here’s the American version, with the naughty bits tastefully obscured.  Big deal – this movie is about misogyny in its most direct forms, so why can’t we at least deal frankly with the subject matter instead of trying to sex it up?  It’s titillating enough already!
