Is it just me or have they utterly undermined one of the most important bits of this story ( to me) which is the way that Lisbeth's character uses her brains and not her body to overpower the horrendous men in her life?
If I knew nothing of the story it looks as though Daniel Craig's character is the saviour of a vulnerable (if alternatively styled) female. What is with that pose? I was looking forward to the new version just because dubbing annoys me but I don't know if I want to see it now.
Just don't watch the trailer - it's just as bad (don't know why I looked it up TBH). Full of semi-naked images of Lisbeth cavorting with one or another character and shots of whatisface (Craig's character) looking serious and frowning intelligently. Grr.
I saw a bloody poster for Hall Pass in Asda yesterday. I can't find a picture of it, but it had the dozy pair of actors, looking either side of a woman's bikini clad arse. I normally walk through life with blinkers on and don't notice things, but I thought that was completely vile. Typical though of a hollywood 'lads' movie.
It is a real distortion on the book (and trilogoy) which does raise a lot of feminist issues very well such as mental health, living on the fringes of "acceptable" society, women hatred, objectification of women, sex trafficking etc.
I haven't seen this but I always thought the book covers were a bit crap - like the designer hadn't even read the book and the physical description of Salander - but had put on the cover a more glamerous picture they thought would sell.
I wonder if it's because the author is not alive to approve the way they portray his vision, so it's gone down to lowest common denominator thought to appeal to a mass Market?
