Fincher Says Swedish Proverb -- "What Is Hidden In Snow Comes Forth In The Thaw" -- May End Up On Final Poster



So, will Rooney Mara usher the Hot Topic look back in vogue with "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"? Certainly we'll have to see, but with the glamor shots she's doing in addition to the movie stills, Mara is certainly selling bleach blonde eyebrows as a new look this fall.

The folks over at Fincher Fanatic have clued us into a new spread of pics over at Le Monde at the film's high fashion downer vibe. And no wonder they look so good. They're taken by famed photographer and music video director Jean-Baptiste Mondino (who has worked with Madonna, David Bowie and Tom Waits among others, enough said), but what's the deal with all the snow? Well David Fincher has an answer to that, and talking to Empire (print edition, not online) he reveals it will play a crucial part in the final one-sheet for the movie.

"There's a Swedish proverb that we'll use for the final poster: 'What is hidden in snow comes forth in the thaw.' The one that's on there now, 'Evil shall with evil be expelled,' is a Swedish proverb as well," he explained. "And when you start to look at Swedish proverbs and how uncompromising they are, you realize what Stieg Larsson was on about. When you're a little kid and one of the cultural touchstones is, 'Evil shall with evil be expelled,' if that's what's under the surface, you can see where this Goth version of Pippi Longstocking came from."

There's no doubt that Fincher's vision is exacting, and while that attitude may put some people off, Mara welcomes it. He's no tyrant she says, "But I think he's painted that way. It's bullshit. I think the thing is that he doesn't care what people think about him. Fuck them. It doesn't matter. I think maybe where it comes from is that David is one of the rare people in this business who actually, really, really cares and believes what he's doing and he's unwilling to compromise. And generally, he's always right."

"He's always right. It's so frustrating! Every time I'm right, I'm like, 'YESSSSSS!" she adds.

The movie has also been receiving some additional buzz as many believe it will be the secret screening at the New York Film Festival on Monday. But our sources tell us Fincher won't be making a return trip to NYFF this year, so you'll have to turn your speculation elsewhere. So along with everybody else, we'll be waiting until December 21st when "The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo" hits theaters.
