    He’s hot! Especially in the third pic :)

  • TakeJoe

    Great image. Daniel looks pretty hot!!

  • Diego

    What does he give her mouth‐to‐mouth? chewing?

  • harley

    I doubt she can top Noomi, but Rooney looks perfect as Salander. The way she is supposed to look.

  • Teth

    Damn!!!!
    Daniel is so cool, but he is too way cool like Bond as Mikael Blomkvist in those photos. I hope he lacks some manly/hunky in the film.

  • susan

    @ harley

    i’m prepared to give Rooney a chance to prove herself in the role

  • Nate

    Noomi as Lisbeth was very charismatic!! I can’t see it to Rooney yet. But who knows? I should suspend judgment until the movie is released.

  • Gia

    What an unnecessary remake! Why is Hollywood always messing with great movies? Its not that difficult reading subtitles…smh

  • harley

    @Nate:

    I can’t completly see it in Roony on the surface, she looks better than Noomi did as Salander. I just don’t know how anybody can top the performance Noomi gave, if Mara even comes close that will be good.

  • Nate

    I saw her acting – A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Social Network. Unfortunately I wasn’t greatly impressed by her. But Fincher persisted in casting her. So I’m interested to see his intentions.

  • Creed

    The only reason this remake has a little hope is because David Fincher is directing.

  • Creed

    Am I the only one who thinks Ellen Page could have pulled this off better? Ill wait until rotten tomatoes reviews to see this, but I dont think Rooney will be better than Noomi. With Noomi you could see her anger and vulnerability in every picture and I dont realy get that vibe from her

  • Alice

    Ellen Page is a great actress, she can act very well. I heard she was in line for the role.

  • Alice

    to Creed
    Ill wait until rotten tomatoes reviews to see this
    ———————————————-
    However, the film critics praise Rooney highly after having watched a trailer, aren’t they?
    Some critics even recommended her for the leading actress.

  • CJLOVE23

    She is sooo amazing! Sexy too!

  • Lakers

    I adore this image!! Sooooooooooo awesome! The bare sight of this thrilled me.

    ‘Dream House’ collapses under its own weight

    ________
    I said Dream house will be a troubled movie and not released, and it is confirmed now.

    I said Cowboys&Aliens will bomb at the box office and really it has happened. Universal executives have said they need to make about $400-500 million but Cowboys hardly earn it.

    Dream House got movie posters and trailers, Cowboys got the same yet the movies bombed.

    Months ago I said Dragon Tattoo will be postponed. Dragon Tattoo got a lot of photos and extended trailer but Fincher took another weeks to direct more new scenes so he didn’t finish the movie still and edtiting is still in process.

    Fans were excited of Dream House, now they left this topic, then they were excited of Cowboys campaign and in the end they didn’t go to theaters to watch it and this movie bombs financially.

    Now they are excited of Dragon Tattoo but my bet is that they won’t see any movie in December and if this movie will be really postponed so I am curious how fans will act in this case. There will no movies to talk about and Daniel is one unlucky man for certain reasons.

I’d hope for him to finish it finally. I gave him a chance to finish it until this summer but he is still directing, he started in September 2010 and now here is October, a year over, it’s known he works for months on the movies but now he would make a record if he worked on Dragon Tattoo for 3 years.

    No premiere – release of Dream House photos, hmmmm….
    I forgot to buy ice cream and a champagne but never mind, then tomorrow.

    Holy Adobe Photoshop! Nice work though!
    And where is a real piece of work? mean the film.
    Halo Fincher, hit it finally!

    Where is MEDIA??

    Dream House cost $55 million and Universal who is the distributor didn’t want to spend another $ millions for marketing campaign.

    execs from the studio have said Cowboys must make about $400-500 million but the movie brought them just $165 million since the time.

    The Smurfs who started at the same time like Cowboys already made over $500 million <—fantastic!

    I hope Daniel won’t continue in sequel of Cowboys&Aliens and Spielberg will give up this horse alien parade.

    from Empire article:
    ““David (Fincher, director) didn’t want to see me, originally,” she says, speaking to this month’s edition of Empire Magazine. “It took a minute for him to wrap his head around it, because he only knew me as Erica Albright — and I only worked for four days on The Social Network.”

    “The process had been drawn out because, as Fincher has it, Sony was keen on someone else — a star who nailed the accent and attitude in auditions, but was beaten out by Mara’s quicksilver quality. “I just kept coming back to Rooney,” says Fincher. “Just going, ‘She’s got something…’ Part of it was I kept coming back to the puppy that nobody wanted, you know? We kept putting her through more and more. I loved her work ethic.”
    _________________________________

    Fincher should listen to his first intuition when refused to see Rooney and never change his mind. He should keep searching for the right actress who would describe the book character very well if not authentically. the swedish actress was close to Lisbeth and he could find even better one and be perfect in the detail as he loves it. Rooney gives us that mixed feeling, like someone said she won’t be Lisbeth Salander but formed Lisbeth by Fincher. I want authenticity, not Miss Fincher.

    @Lisa -. what circus did you escape from? Sure, you are in the right section here? Do you need to repeat everything to understand yourself in the first place? I bet…anyway – just stop the nonsense. Nobody is interested and Tattoo wont bomb and this is what I am saying…

  • anne

    i don’t understand why Lisbeth is never dominant in any of the pictures i see promoting the movie. Do they not understand that she would not be sitting beneath a man or be naked in the poster with a man’s arm covering her? the more i see, the more i fear.

    _________________________________
    I have this thought too. Lisbeth is the lead character, the main hero, she is more than Mikael. Photos are really strange but it’s Fincher style he offers us.

    what we see in photos is just Fincher’s vision, he tries to offer us heavy-metal Lisbeth, not that innocent punk girl from the books and they say he’s doing a different and more rough version of Lisbeth and between his movie and book are many differences.

    Nobody is interested and Tattoo wont bomb and this is what I am saying…
    _______________________________________________
    the same happened with Cowboys and Dream House when posters were convinced these movies will be hits and in the end fans weren’t that much interested to buy tickets and watch Cowboys, and Dream House lies in hell and is not even properly released like I said it before.
    In two months, we can learn Dragon Tattoo finds itself in trouble and is postponed. I was right about bombing Cowboys and un-released Dream House and now I put you one question: if I will be right about postponed Dragon Tattoo what you will be thinking? give a honest answer.

  • Rachel

    Rachel must be disappointed how her last movie Dream House did.
    This movie made ridiculous $2,661,000 during the opening. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=dreamhouse.htm

    Nice words you used, did you read it in a book, eh?
    genre western-alien was crap obviously from the very beginning and it bombed, a year ago I said Dream House won’t be released and it’s a strong coffee that I was right at this point.
    Fake heavy-metal Salander from Rooney is too much fabricated by Fincher, he never let to be a more natural Lisbeth and one day sure to come when this bubble bursts. There is the line between Roman character, Cowboys&Aliens, Dream House and Dragon Tattoo….

  • Mercado

    So what posters, did you buy tickets to watch crap Cowboys and Dream House already?

  • Mercado

    If you are going to cinema to watch Dragon Tattoo in December so I warned before you that there are no tickets available!

  • sonya

    Damn, Daniel is fine!
