“Mouth Taped Shut” – A Secret Insider Production Blog For David Fincher’s ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’?
Posted on Tuesday, September 6th, 2011 by Peter Sciretta
I received an e-mail today from a /film reader telling me to check out the website Mouth-Taped-Shut.com. When you click the link you’ll be greeted by a Tumblr blog, which appears to be some fansite for David Fincher and/or The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I almost closed my web browser window before realizing that some of the content on the tumblr included images and video taken on the set of the film. Not the kind of set videos and photos that we’re used to posting — these appear to have been taken on closed sets (see the video embedded above), in the editing room, and in the production office by an insider. It seems as if the tumblr has been online for a couple weeks now (since August 20th 2011).
This doesn’t appear to be something set up directly by Sony Pictures (although, you never know), but more likely someone inside Fincher’s production company. David Fincher has always been vocal in his hate for traditional film marketing like featurettes. Could he be directly involved in this? Check it out for yourself.
