The new international trailer for the American adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was just released by the studio!
This new, longer trailer gives us better insight into Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander, Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist and their unconventional partnership. If you didn't think Mara could pull off the darker Lisbeth character, watch the trailer below because she nails it!

A general rule of thumb is that if you follow the math formula known as The Henson Equation (Muppets & Anything = Awesome), good things will happen. So it should come as no surprise that combining the Muppets with the trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011 movie), would get you a completely awesome result. Below you can see the two different trailers and compare and contrast the two of them.

I'm pretty excited to check out the first movie when it debuts in the North American market. After the great success of the Swedish films, and with the compelling and edge-of-your-seat based plot, I anticipate I'll be one of the first few in the theatre watching the movie.

So, how do you think the upcoming film will compare?
What do you think about this trend of taking movies and making the "American" versions of them? Is there a reason American audiences don't want to watch original movies? I know subtitles can scare some people off, but I really like seeing movies in their original language, I think sometimes the Hollywood versions can be overdone and can dilute some of the reasons the movie was great in the first place. Thoughts?
