When you say American remake, you think of Skins US and say “Meh…nevermind”.
Stieg Larsson’s “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” has already been adapted into film (2009) but that film was in Swedish starring Noomi Rapace.
This year, the American remake will be released. I don’t want to judge this one.
People did that with the Swedish vampire movie “Låt den rätte komma in” (Let the right one in) by thinking the American remake, “Let me In” would suck. I actually liked the latter.
Plus, David Fincher’s “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” trailer kicks ass. Did you actually see the trailer above? 😀
