I haven’t read any of the Stieg Larsson books that they’re based on, but I dug the hell out of the original Girl with a Dragon Tattoo movie. I wasn’t as fond of the second one; it felt like a transition movie, instead of a stand-alone film, and that’s the feedback I’ve gotten from others who have read the novel. In either case, the first film was good enough to overcome the second film’s faults, and leave me plenty excited about the third, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest, mostly because Noomi Rapace is fan-fucking-tastic. It’d be a privilege to have my ass kicked by her, though she can leave the dildo at home, thank you very much (oh, I know, commenters: Gay joke, gay joke, blah blah gay joke).
I still want Noomi Rapace to gay marry Imogen Poots. And I want them both to be at the Oscars. And I want Letterman to host. “Noomi meet Poots. Poots meet Noomi.” I’m 12.
Here’s the trailer, which deftly avoids the use of dialogue so as to not remind anyone that it’s a foreign film and that you’ll be required to read during the film. Fucking Beavises.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest arrives in theaters on October 29th.
