It’s been a couple days since we mined Mouth Taped Shut, the unofficial promo site for David Fincher‘s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but last night the site debuted a new poster for the film that is too nice not to pass up. I know — ‘nice’ — not really a word we use to describe anything related to this story. But when the last Dragon Tattoo poster was a sheet-metal creation cut to look like a razor blade, almost anything else is going to look ‘nice’ in comparison.
Check out the full image, which puts Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) right into the head of Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara) after the break.
Want to know why I love a promo site like Mouth Taped Shut? Because after one comment complained about the poster with a ramble of dismissive babble, there was a terse response from Trent Reznor: “Johnny – Suck me.” Not exactly politic, but very Reznor. This site is no corporate mouthpiece, but an outlet for people who care about the work that they’re doing, which just happens to be corporate-funded. Great way to promote a movie to the hardcore; shame that you might have to be Fincher and Reznor to get away with it.
