The Best Hold @ 01/08/2012 at 5:05 pm

David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo made news for Sony, sporting the best hold of any film in wide release and falling only 24 percent to $11.3 million for a domestic cume of $76.8 million. Dragon Tattoo continued its rollout overseas, grossing $12 million from 33 territories for an international total of $29.3 million and word cume of $106.1 million.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo finished the frame in fourth place with $11.3 million, dipping only 24 percent, the smallest drop in the Top 10. Could the edgy adaptation finally be finding its adult audience now that the warm n’ fussy holiday season is over? After 19 days, Dragon Tattoo has grossed $76.8 million, and if it maintains strong holds like this, it should pass $100 million.

Hi Mendel! Thank you for the review. ”In the two hours and thirty eight minutes this film was playing, I didn’t hear one conversation in the audience. I didn’t see anyone get up to use the restroom. I didn’t even hear popcorn being crunched. The audience was still, in an almost hypnotic state- and it couldn’t have been due to boredom.”
The middle aged man sobbed throughout the climax of the movie when I saw it. Yes, A MIDDLE AGED MAN!!

@PENNYWISE:
Can you please stop with your rambling it doesn’t make any sense and you seem to do it on every thread!

Now I’ve learned that Sony Pictures is indeed going forward with The Girl Who Played With Fire already written by Steve Zallian, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest which Zallian is penning. Studio chief Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin have not yet locked in David Fincher as director. But they’re looking to start shooting #2 by the end of this year/beginning of next. Overseas Sony now expects GWDT to do over $200M — so $300M all in globally. “And that’s a really good number,” the Sony exec told me hopefully. But one mogul counters, “The surprising part is that Sony is not waiting to see if the movie works overseas before going forward with the sequels. I would have.”

Right now Dragon Tattoo has amassed a $76.8M domestic cume and should get very close to $100M because it’s holding better than any other holiday movie. Sony and rival studios believe the movie’s box office was hurt by that long brutal rape scene not appropriate for a Christmas release. (“It’s a notch too dark for that window,” one studio chief tells me. Agrees a top Sony exec, “It was too cocky of us. We might think about that next time.”) Counting against GWDT was that the Hollywood version of the bestselling book had already been made into a Swedish film widely distributed beginning in 2009. Plus Zallian and Fincher changed the first book’s ending. As for book #2, its challenge is that title character Lisbeth Salander played by Rooney Mara) isn’t much in it. But Sony has changed that, too, and Zallian’s script places her front and center again.
—————————————————————–
I’m glad to hear that SONY admitted the mistake of release date, and I’m surprised Steve Zallian already has finished writing the script of Fire.

Hi, all!! I’m home. What’s new? I spent more than three-fourths, if not all, of my holidays on trip with my family, we had a lovely time together. But the only bad thing, the airline lost my baggage twice… TWICE!! Why on earth should I wear my mom’s clothes or a muumuu while the lovely holidays?! Oh well…
Hi, Guinness
“6. Watched—yes! Cowboys & Aliens. ohhh- my. very good. I missed the climbing chaps cuz my 8 year old kept coming into the room and screamed when i realized that was the part, cuz i was waiting for it Mendel. the group i was with didn’t want to rewind it. ho hum.”
Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. You had better recover losses because his chaps is really a great treasure! lol
Hi, Mendel
@pre-thread
In ‘Kicked The Hornets’, I always thought that Monica should be played by Emma Sjöberg Wiklund! She played policewoman Petra in Taxi. Also, she’s a 43-year-old Swede with blue eyes, blond hair. Don’t you think that’s a perfect cast?

Do you remember, according to some twitters, Daniel visited the Mongolian hospital (ophthalmology) with Rachel in last summer? Daniel now hopes to visit there again.

Daniel Craig (Daniel Craig) was invited to the well-known ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital, to observe a group of Mongolian children’s problems by cataract surgery. He described the visit is moving testimony: “In any age, loss of visual acuity is undoubtedly a tragedy, but these children are so young they blind is difficult to imagine, for the children to restore vision, try to let them live a normal life definitely is a moving thing! ”
Although Craig is a busy man, but in the film “Dragon Tattoo Girl” is still freeing up valuable time to go during the goodwill tour trip, he said: “Their Flying Eye Hospital to fly around the world such as South America, Asia, etc. surgery, they happen to be going to Mongolia. when I learned that the aircraft have to spare, jumped, and then transfer to visit Mongolia. ”

Craig said: “This is my first time to Mongolia, Mongolia, when we drove to the outskirts, saw astonishing beauty, but unfortunately time is limited, then the next time I will definitely go to Mongolia.”

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Sequel Officially Shooting Late This Year
http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Girl-With-Dragon-Tattoo-Sequel-Officially-Shooting-Late-Year-28708.html
We basically assumed Sony would move ahead with an adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl Who Played With Fire, book two in the three-part Millennium series, at some point. Hints and rumors have surfaced here and there, though David Fincher was hesitant to commit to anything during a recent press day on behalf of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, even though stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara certainly are under contract.

Well, the actors might want to get their passports out, as it appears they’ll be heading back to Sweden soon enough. Deadline now says that the studio will be moving forward on parts two and three of Larsson’s trilogy, with Tattoo screenwriter Steve Zaillian tacking adaptation duties. And that makes sense. While Tattoo can be viewed as a standalone story, there’s really no reason to start down this path of American versions of the popular stories if you aren’t going to finish the series. And while Deadline points out that the $106 million global gross is less than what the studio likely anticipated, Sony still expects to perform well in as-yet-unopened markets and justify the making of the last two films.

But will Fincher return? Deadline says that Sony would like to start filming at the end of 2012, but Fincher has not agreed to anything yet. And in the press conference we attended in New York City, Fincher said he’d likely shoot parts two and three back to back, as they essentially tell one long story that happens to be broken in half.

Yet if Sony’s looking to keep costs down on the sequels in hopes of maximizing its profits, I could see them overlooking the brilliant Fincher for an alternate (read: cheaper) filmmaker. That would be tragic. At the same time, I’m also interested in seeing what innovative projects Fincher might move on to instead, because we’ve already seen Larsson’s Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, and I’m not sure we need Fincher’s attention to detail to make these films work.

Fincher would shoot books two and three of the Dragon trilogy back to back? I wonder. even though Daniel is still under contract to make the two films he may not go for Fincher’s idea. and for that matter neither would Rooney.

Daniel has signed on for more Bond after 23. BB and Eon are not going to want to wait 4 years between Bond 23 and Bond 24. they’ll want to wait only 2 years. that would put a damper on Fincher’s plan to film books two and three back to back.

I would not be surprised to hear that Fincher has been replaced. after all, this man filmed the opening scene in Social Network 99 times before he was happy. and how many times did Fincher film every other scene in that film. that cost the studio. Now he does Dragon Tattoo and does the same thing; filming each scene over and over and over, etc. The studio may want a director who will get the other two films made quickly

Bond23 will be wrapped in June, so Daniel would be available for Fire in summer 2012. Bond 24 will not start before late 2013. And to make Fire and Hornet’s nest back to back will not take more than 1.5 years. Tattoo filming took more than a year because there have been LONG breaks in between.
I think if they want to do it, the schedule will not be the problem. Money might be a reason.

sorry to say, money is not the only reason. it’s in large part David Fincher. for any other director filming Fire and Hornets nest back to back would be approx 1.5 years. but Fincher is not any director. this is the man who filmed each and every scene in Social Network more than 20 times. Some people at the studio were more then upset. the only thing that saved the situation was that Social Network was nominated for multiple Oscars and made money.

there may have been long breaks in between during the filming of Dragon Tattoo but the fact remains that Fincher was filming each scene dozens of times. Every time Fincher reshoots a scene it costs the studio money. sad to say, but it may come down to Fincher being told by the studio bosses that he will be given a set amount of time to make the next film. if he fails to finish on time another director could be brought in to finish. it’s been done before, several times actually.

I wonder if Rooney made such a great Lisbeth Salander without Fincher. I highly doubt it. Rooney’s Lisbeth was Fincher’s stylistically innovative works. He gave expression to his ideas through his Lisbeth. 100%. He really made Rooney Mara stunning awesome.

64th Annual DGA Awards Nom @ 01/09/2012 at 5:45 pm

DGA Nominations – Fincher in!
WOODY ALLEN
Midnight in Paris
(Sony Pictures Classics)

DAVID FINCHER
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
(Columbia Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures)

MICHEL HAZANAVICIUS
The Artist
(The Weinstein Company)

ALEXANDER PAYNE
The Descendants
(Fox Searchlight Pictures)

MARTIN SCORSESE
Hugo
(Paramount Pictures)

WOW!

EARLIER: The year feels so wide open, with three locks at this point: Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist, Martin Scorsese for Hugo and Alexander Payne for The Descendants. From there, you have three or four more possible: Woody Allen for Midnight in Paris, Tate Taylor for The Help, Steven Spielberg for War Horse and Bennett Miller for Moneyball. Throw in Terrence Malick for Tree of Life. But guessing Malick for director now still isn’t really a No Guts, No Glory. Predicting Tomas Alfredson for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy or Nicolas Winding Refn for Drive would be.

My official predictions are:
Hazanavicius
Scorsese
Payne
Allen
Taylor
Spielberg is my alternate — having a tough time between Spielberg and Taylor – kind of think it’s going to be Spielberg but the stats don’t lie. SAG + PGA + Best Picture = DGA nom (in all but one year since the PGA began). But the only one to miss the WGA is War Horse (The Artist wasn’t eligible but wouldn’t have missed had it been). Munich missed out on the WGA and the ADG too but got an Eddie nod and eventually a Best Pic/Best Director nod. So essentially, since Steven Spielberg kind of rules this town, thinking he’ll get snubbed is a No Guts, No Glory in and of itself. But I have to have some excitement in my life. You should all predict Spielberg in the contest, however, as he’s the MOST LIKELY to get in.

No Guts, No Glory: Just for the fun of it, I’ll say Paul Feig gets in for Bridesmaids, throw a whole kink in the works.

64th Annual DGA Awards Nom @ 01/09/2012 at 5:57 pm

HAMMOND: DGA Surprises – Fincher In, Spielberg Out; What Does It Mean For Oscar Race?
DGA Awards Nominations Announced

With another major guild nomination following PGA and WGA recognition, this morning’s very significant DGA Awards nom for David Fincher’s direction of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was the only mild surprise on a list that included expected nominees Woody Allen for Midnight In Paris, Alexander Payne for The Descendants, Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist and Martin Scorsese for Hugo. The only December release of the five, Dragon Tattoo has had a slow build during awards season (just as it has had at the box office) and now appears to be reaching a crescendo. At one point things looked so bleak for serious awards prospects that Sony reportedly even began pulling back on some previously planned Oscar ad buys in various publications and sites. That has all changed now and the film has become a serious contender, earning Fincher his third DGA nom in four years following The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button and last year’s The Social Network.

The biggest snub on today’s list has to be Steven Spielberg, who was overlooked for DreamWorks’ War Horse, an expected Oscar power player that may be slipping back in the pack a bit during the crucial stretch run. After all, Spielberg is a DGA favorite with 10 previous nominations (most recently in 2005 for Munich) and three competition wins — including The Color Purple, which didn’t even earn him a nomination for an Oscar. A large part of the voting block at the DGA are TV directors, and Spielberg with his long list of television projects keeps many of them employed. A past DGA winner as well for lifetime achievement, Spielberg’s omission is a crushing blow for any Oscar prospects from the much smaller directors branch.

No director not at least nominated for a DGA Award has gone on to win the Best Director Oscar, and only a handful of past DGA winners have failed to go on and grab the Oscar. The last time there was a discrepancy came in 2002, when Chicago’s Rob Marshall won the DGA Award but lost to The Pianist’s Roman Polanski at the Oscars.

Of course, the DGA doesn’t always match up 5 for 5 with Oscar, so there still could be hope for him or others bypassed today like Moneyball’s Bennett Miller, The Help’s Tate Taylor, The Tree Of Life’s Terrence Malick and Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close’s Stephen Daldry. The latter two films have been completely overlooked now in each major guild contest — SAG, PGA, WGA and now DGA — so their Oscar chances in major categories have dimmed considerably. It should be noted that despite a DGA nomination for Malick’s 1998 war film The Thin Red Line, the same snub occurred from the other three guilds and the Golden Globes; but on Oscar nomination day, it went on to surprise everyone by earning seven nods including Best Picture and director. This year, there isn’t even a DGA nomination for him. Daldry, who has been Oscar nominated for every one of the three previous films he has made, actually only has one previous DGA nomination (for The Hours). But right now he’s looking like a real long shot to make it 4 for 4 this year, and Extremely Loud — which, like War Horse, was expected to be a major player — just can’t seem to ignite so far with industry voters.

Other than first-time nominee Hazanavicius, the rest of the pack are DGA veterans including Scorsese, who has been nominated almost as much as Spielberg with nine feature nods, and Allen, who has five now. Both are the only previous winners on the list, with Scorcese scoring in 2006 for The Departed and Allen in 1977 for Annie Hall. Payne was previously nominated for his last film, Sideways, in 2004. Fincher is the long shot among this bunch, but in a topsy turvy year like this there is no slam-dunk winner — though first timer Hazanavicius might be the prohibitive frontrunner at this point since The Artist seems to have the most momentum.

The nostalgia wave that has been so prevalent among top contenders this season (see HAMMOND: Tough Economic Times Make Nostalgic Films Hottest Bets For Oscar) continues with the DGA and its love for lighter period pieces like The Artist, Hugo and Midnight In Paris. But it is only the latter film, along with the more contemporary Descendants, that have earned all-important key nominations from the four big guilds (The Artist missed out on that distinction by being ineligible for a WGA Award). What direct impact, if any, the DGA’s nominations have on the Oscar race remains to be seen. But Academy ballots are still out and not due back until Friday at 5 PM. There is still time, brother.

“Hi, all!! I’m home. ”

Welcome back!!! This place has been a lot quieter without you!

“But the only bad thing, the airline lost my baggage twice… TWICE!! Why on earth should I wear my mom’s clothes or a muumuu while the lovely holidays?! Oh well…”

That’s bad!!! If Dan had been there, you could have used it as an excuse to go nekkid ;)

“I always thought that Monica should be played by Emma Sjöberg Wiklund!”

She looks great, and definitely could play the part, but she looks exactly the opposite to what I thought Monica would look like! I always imagined Monica as dark-haired, curvy and tanned…

The picture of Dan in Mongolia is so sweet, and I just love the black and white one of Dan at Cambridge Uni.

“Yet if Sony’s looking to keep costs down on the sequels in hopes of maximizing its profits, I could see them overlooking the brilliant Fincher for an alternate (read: cheaper) filmmaker. That would be tragic.”

I think it would be a bad move (also for continuity). I wonder if awards and Oscar nominations might make a difference, and make them decide in favour of Fincher.

to ‘to Susan’

“it may come down to Fincher being told by the studio bosses that he will be given a set amount of time to make the next film. if he fails to finish on time another director could be brought in to finish.”

Would Fincher agree to this though?

“it may come down to Fincher being told by the studio bosses that he will be given a set amount of time to make the next film. if he fails to finish on time another director could be brought in to finish.”
Would Fincher agree to this though?
=================
Fincher may have no choice to agree unless he wants the directing job to be taken away from him.

yes, David Fincher nominated for another DGA award. this must really upset Gina and the other troll whom we all know. wouldn’t it just wonderful if David won both the DGA and the Oscar.

Hi Fio. Yes, Emma is so much sexier/taller than an action star Maggie Q, IMO!!

Congrats to Funcher on his DGA Nom!

Hi, Mendel
“If Dan had been there, you could have used it as an excuse to go nekkid ;)”
That’s a good idea! But I’m afraid he mixes me up with my mom…
“but she looks exactly the opposite to what I thought Monica would look like!”
Oh… but according to the books, Monica has curled-blond short hair, and blue eyes. Emma, 43 years old, may be too old to play Monica, 36 years old, tho…

I agree with Daniel. One may as well not know a thing at all, as know it but imperfectly…

Daniel Craig: I’d rather be ignorant to hacking
http://www.film-news.co.uk/show-news.asp?H=Daniel-Craig:-Id-rather-be-ignorant-to-hacking&nItemID=9150
Daniel Craig has no interest in finding out whether he was the victim of phone hacking.

Stars including Sienna Miller, Hugh Grant and Steve Coogan have all given evidence at the ongoing Leveson Inquiry in London, which is looking into claims several UK newspaper hacked into celebrities’ phones to obtain information.

Daniel has no idea if his privacy was ever compromised in such a way – something he is glad about.

“I don’t know for sure. But I don’t want to know it. Because what else would this information do apart from bother me? I’d rather not know it,” he told wz-newsline.de.

Daniel stars as Mikael Blomkvist in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which is based on the book by Stieg Larsson.

The movie contains a lot of violence and sexual scenes, but Daniel didn’t find them hard to shoot. He is keen to point out how easy his job is compared to what some people do, and gets tired of actors claiming they have things hard.

“My job is simple I don’t have go coal mining or anything,” he said. “I go to work and act and it is just so much fun! I’m allowed to do what I always wanted to do. I work with incredible intelligent and creative people. What’s hard with that? Sure, [some] scenes [were] heavy but did I get hurt? Or do I wake up at night screaming? No.”

LameyConcedes @ 01/10/2012 at 1:02 pm

Even though we know TGWTDT isn’t a flop, it is just nice to hear it from Lamey. Maybe she can find someone else to hate this year. But that is just wishful thinking.

http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/22306/More-Dragon-Tattoo-girl-movies-to-be-released-for-America

@Fio: Welcome back, Fio!

This Lainey hag is not even able to get her fact straight. Fire and Nest were made by the same director.
