We’ve already got a fairly good idea of what David Fincher‘s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will look like, thanks to all those previously released photos, trailers, and whatnot, but since everything has looked pretty damn stunning so far, we’re more than happy to flip through a few more pictures. Empire Magazine has unveiled some gorgeous new promo pics of Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in character in their latest issue. See Blomkvist (Craig) keeping his cool while handcuffed to a chair, Lisbeth (Mara) hanging out with her space heater, and the two of them sharing a smoky moment after the jump.

Moneyball is a baseball movie, an underdog tale, a true story and a Brad Pitt vehicle. But more than any of those things, Moneyball is a character study about what it’s like to stand up against everyone and everything because you have faith in an idea.
In 2001, the Oakland Athletics, with a payroll of about $40 million – almost a third of the ultra-rich New York Yankees – made the playoffs. The next year, three of their marquee players were poached by other teams for bigger contracts and, with little money and few resources, general manager Billy Beane (Pitt) was forced to embrace a whole new way of looking at baseball to stay competitive.

And that’s something we can all relate to. Read More »

The backstory of the new telling of Jack Ryan‘s origin story is becoming quite an origin story of its own. Paramount has been trying to kickstart the rebirth of the Jack Ryan franchise for two years — it stalled out in 2002 with the Ben Affleck-led The Sum of All Fears.
Now the latest screenwriter to try to stick an adrenaline needle in the franchise’s nearly-flatlined chest is David Koepp. But is he doctoring the script, or starting from scratch? Read More »

Stieg Larsson‘s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is of the great cultural success stories in recent years. No matter where you go – on a train, plane, or just sitting in the park – that bright green and yellow book cover seems to be everywhere. The original movies were a smash hit overseas and by now we all know that Golden Globe-winning director David Fincher is hard at work on the American remake. Rooney Mara stars the titular character, Lisbeth Salander, who teams up with journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) to solve a long gestating disappearance.
As the first photos of Mara portraying the now iconic character were released, so too was some extremely controversial information about the film, mainly that Oscar-winning screenwriter Steven Zaillian has crafted a new ending to the revered work. And though we ran that quote last week, fans of Larsson’s work have been very vocal with their disappointment so it’s time to defend Fincher and Zaillian. Read why we feel the original ending needs to be changed after the jump. Read More »
