The red-band trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the David Fincher-directed adaptation of the popular book by Stieg Larsson, has leaked. The teaser is absolutely fantastic, with a version of “Immigrant Song” by Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Trent Reznor pulsing over cut-scenes from the film. Seriously, this teaser is phenomenal. The official version of the trailer is set to debut next week, so check this one out while it’s still up. Rooney Mara stars as Lisbeth Salander, the young heroine who investigates the Vanger family with journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig). Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, and Joley Richardson also star. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opens December 21. Watch the trailer after the jump. http://collider.com/the-girl-with-the-dragon-tattoo-movie-trailer/89858/
New Details on Terrence Malick’s Romantic Drama Starring Ben Affleck, and is He Shooting Another Film This Year?

Writer/director Terrence Malick’s latest film, The Tree of Life, just opened in limited release this weekend, marking only the fifth film released by the auteur in an almost 40-year career. To say Malick takes his time in choosing and editing projects is an understatement. But the director’s trademark lag between productions may now be a thing of the past. Last year, Malick shot his follow-up to Tree of Life, a romantic drama starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem, Rachel Weisz, Barry Pepper and Olga Kurylenko. While details on the plot are extremely hard to come by (typical of a Malick film), a bit more information has been unveiled about the drama.
Previously referred to as Burial, the untitled drama is a love story described as being even more experimental than Tree of Life, a film that has drawn some polarizing responses given its lack of narrative and expansive reach for greatness, despite winning the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Someone who has seen footage from Malick’s follow-up stated that the director’s trademark meditativeness “is there in spades.” Even more interesting, though, is the fact that Malick has alerted his production crew to keep the summer and fall open to possibly shoot another film this year. Hit the jump for more. http://collider.com/terrence-malick-untitled-movie-details/93485/
Photos from the Set of THE HUNGER GAMES; Amber Chaney Joins the Cast

We have seen a few photos from the North Carolina set of The Hunger Games, but they lacked a certain human element. Today’s collection fixes that, with photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Willow Shields, and even Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins in costume. These characters are residents of the destitute District 12, so the costumes are drab. But as the action travels to the lavish Capitol, the clothes become decidedly more flamboyant.
In other Hunger Games news, Lionsgate announced on Twitter that newcomer Amber Chaney is cast as “Avox girl,” a servant whose tongue was cut out for committing crimes against the Capitol. This Avox is assigned to Katniss (Lawrence) as she prepares for the Hunger Games. It’s a minor role (obviously non-speaking), but Katniss and the Avox share a special connection, so the character is not unimportant.
Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elisabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, and Wes Bentley also star in the adaptation directed by Gary Ross (Seabisciut). The Hunger Games is scheduled for release on March 23, 2012. Check out the set photos after the jump.
