'Men Who Hate Women' ...

... is what it should be called, but instead they're going with the dumbass title the UK publisher gave the book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Completely insipid. And they'll regret it later, because there is actually a good reason why the first book has the title that it has. Oh well, too late now. Anyway:

I am of course talking about Niels Arden Oplev's movie version of Stieg Larsson's brilliant thriller Män som hatar kvinnor. I am SO psyched about that movie. The casting of the male lead is perfect and the book has the potential to become a truly great movie. However ... now I'm a little worried.

The first teaser trailer for the movie was released a couple of days ago. And it completely and totally SUCKS ASS. It's completely stupid and vapid and says NOTHING about the movie, about the story or the characters or the plot or anything. Seriously a very very extremely bad trailer and obviously not a good sign. See for yourselves:

YAWN. Is it me? Seriously, is it me? I DO NOT SEE how someone who knows nothing about the book is going to be able to make any sense whatsoever of this trailer.

Ever heard the phrase, 'too clever for their own good' ... ?
