Tagline For The Film Reportedly 'The Feel Bad Movie Of Christmas'



Update: Pitchfork has confirmed that Trent Reznor and Karen O indeed cover Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" which is featured in the red band teaser for "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." If you see "The Hangover Part II" this weekend there's a chance you might catch it, but hey Sony, how about throwing it online already?

OK, this is pulling together bits of info from various places and we really have no idea if it's legit, but all the arrows point in the same direction and if it's true? Well, that's pretty fucking awesome.

Let's go back a little bit. A few days ago, a reader pointed us in the direction of Albert Ratings Board website which recently dropped an 18+ (or R in the United States) and PG rating on two separate trailers for David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." Not long after, word dropped that overseas the red-band trailer was already screening in Sweden and France, with a green-band version scheduled to launch in North America next Thursday, June 2nd. However, it looks like some people are already seeing it even earlier -- and that's not even the best part.

For those of you going to see "The Hangover Part II" this weekend, you may be in for a treat. Readers are commenting over at IMDb that the red-band trailer is unspooling in front of the hit comedy sequel. So what are we likely to see? /Film tracked down this comment on IMDb:

So a few thoughts on this, anyone that is worried about it not following the Orginal/book can put that worry to bed. This looks to be as graphic if not more then the orginal. The trailer consists of a bunch of quick cuts of scenes from the movie. Alot of things from the Orginal that we only see in still photos and hear characters talk about are actually filmed and shown. Any worry about Rooney Mara not looking the part don’t need to worry. There is a shot in the trailer of her topless pulling on a shirt much like Noomi Rapace does in the others. Mara looks the part for sure. Skinny as Rapace, only thing it looks like they may have done is toned down the punk look some. But not alot. Not sure what else to say other then the trailer was very intense, it was set to Led Zeppelin's "immigrant song."

So far, so good. But here's where things get even more interesting. Among the comments over at /Film, one reader said, "BTW the Zeppelin song they use is actually a remix. It sounds as if [Trent] Reznor remixed the track, but I highly doubt it was him, just in the same vein as a NIN remix." Another added with more confidence, "The music is a cover of the ‘Immigrant Song’ done specifically for the movie by Trent Reznor with vocals by Karen O."

Yes, we know. It's pretty thin considering the comment comes from an anonymous reader but consider this: Led Zeppelin songs are massively expensive to license and it would be weird to hear that stomping rock song over a trailer for a dark film like "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." Moreover, as we all know, Trent Reznor is scoring the film and having him refashion the song into a cover seems to make sense and would fall in line with approach used for "The Social Network" where the Scala & Kolacny Brothers' version of "Creep" was used in the first spot for that movie. Nothing is official, but we're hearing that the tune is one Fincher has been wanting to use for a while, and if it's there it's going to be the best early Christmas present we could receive. We can't wait to hear it.

With Rooney Mara poised to launch into the A-list with the film, and with expectations running high, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is one of the most anticipated movies of the fall. The actress is said to have completely transformed for the role -- Mark Zuckerberg would hardly recognize her. "It's extraordinary," co-star Christopher Plummer recently told E!. "And because she looks so young, it's very frightening. The innocence makes it even more terrifying. She is going to be the most wonderful Tattoo Girl."

And we've saved the best for last. The tagline for the film is apparently: "The Feel Bad Movie Of Christmas."

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" opens on December 21st.
