Trailer Wednesday: Breaking Dawn Pt. 1, ‘Dragon Tattoo’


Anticipated novel adaptations comprise today’s Trailer Wednesday. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1” will mark the second movie of 2011 to be one of a two-parter based on the last chapter of a book series after “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2” next month. Also, David Fincher’s Hollywood adaptation of the “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” gets a teaser in advance of its Holiday season release.

The final chapter is upon us — well, the first part of it at least. Directed by Bill Condon (“Dream Girls”), “Breaking Dawn” has the attention of the “Twilight” fan base and then some. If you’ve heard anything about this book, it’s quite a departure from the tone of the others as the teaser hints to with Bella’s pregnancy at the very end.

The teaser packs in some good ‘ole “Twilight” cheese with Taylor Lautner throwing off his shirt and running into the woods after receiving the invitation to Edward and Bella’s wedding. It also has some weird shit like a quick shot of the love scene in which Edward is demolishing their honeymoon sweet.

Don’t make love to a vampire, kids. “Breaking Dawn Pt. 1” comes out Nov. 18 and expect a box-office killing.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Swedish adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium Trilogy” earned a decent amount of a acclaim with a lot of praise for star Noomi Rapace as expert hacker Lisbeth Salander, but here we have a “remake” for international audiences that looks to one-up the Swedes. David Fincher (“The Social Network”) returns to his serial killer thriller roots (he made the beloved R-rated mystery “Se7en”) as the director, with Daniel Craig in the role of disgraced journalist Mikael Blomqvist.

As evidenced here, especially when considering “The Social Network” trailer, Fincher knows how to put together a fantastic piece of trailer.

For those unfamiliar with books, “Dragon Tattoo” focuses on Blomqvist, a journalist who loses a libel lawsuit and after temporarily stepping down from his magazine, agrees to help an old man with a long-unsolved murder mystery on a remote Swedish island. Salander, initially told to gather information on him, eventually becomes wrapped up in the mystery as well.

“Dragon Tattoo” comes out on Dec. 21.
