The promotional machine for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is up and preparing to crush the competition in the run-up to its theatrical bow next week and Entertainment Tonight, the show that once gave Cosmo Kramer seizures, has a preview of the forthcoming film. You can watch it here below.
There’s a bit of footage from the David Fincher-directed film along with interviews with stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in the two-minute preview. If you’ve seen the various regular and extended trailers you won’t find anything new here. Mara discusses how she approached the character of Lisbeth Salander and Craig talks about shooting in the frigid climate of Sweden.
Entertainment Tonight was able to visit the set of the gritty and realistic Ridley Scott version of the tale of Robin Hood, which stars Russell Crowe. With their visit we get a lot of fantastic new looks at the sets and settings, the actors in costume, and a subtle idea of the tone we can expect. Along with these cool new looks, you’ll of course get all of the really important stuff from ET, such as asking Cate Blanchett if she was able to kiss Crowe in the movie, but that’s the stuff you just block out. The video below is a promo for the spot, which sounded very much like it was supposed to air this past Monday, but is nowhere to be found. The full video will be here as soon as it is available, but for now, the promo shows a lot and is worth watching.
While searching for the full ET video, it quickly became obvious that this was not the first video on the set of Robin Hood, but that there were many. It actually almost looks like the set is open to the public to walk around and check out if you go an watch other clips, which seems quite strange of course.
In any case, if you’re as excited for this movie as we are, you have to check these videos out for yourself. The ET promo is here and I’ve gathered as many of the good ones as I could find, but there are more to check out at YouTube. It is beyond doubt an impressive production, and it should be a lot of fun to see the final product.
