This November, Music Box Films will bring the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy: Extended Edition to Blu-ray. The popular adaptations of novelist Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest – are now presented in their extended versions as seen on Swedish television. Music Box’s Blu-ray box set restores over two hours to the aggregate running time of the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy, making these initial adaptations of the Larsson mysteries much more faithful to their source material. Early reports have indicated that the films will have 5.1 Dolby Digital audio, with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo shown in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest receiving 1.85:1 transfers. The 4-disc collection contains one newly produced special feature: 53-minute-long Millennium: The Story documentary about Stieg Larsson’s life. Music Box has not yet specified whether or not any of the supplemental materials from the previous Blu-ray versions, which showcased the shorter theatrical cuts, will be included with the extended editions. The Dragon Tattoo Trilogy: Extended Edition is expected to street on November 22nd, one month before director David Fincher’s remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo hits theaters.
Something I wanted to add to Noomi Rapace Online since its opening was a special on the three Millennium films – and finally, it has been created. Head over for the special for all essential info on the films, the characters and its author, Stieg Larsson. Additionally, I made a tribute video for the three films to bring you into the mood to re-watch the films :-) Enjoy!
Added DVD screencaptures from the making ofs of “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”, alongside captures from the 2009 documentary on Stieg Larsson, “The Millennium Story”.
Over 1.300 DVD captures from the extended Millennium mini-series have been added to the gallery. Since the trilogy was originally planned and shot for television, the mini-series features a lot more scenes than the theatrical versions. Each film is expanded to two episodes, making the series a 6 episodes delight of 9 hours. I’m working on a special section to highlight the extended scenes and notable differences between the film and tv versions, so stay tuned.
A couple of production stills from the first two Millenium parts as well as Beyond have been added. Also, most of the Babycall production stills have been replaced in higher resolution.
Here’s a great early Christmas present for all visitors and fans of the “Millenium” trilogy. The video archive has been updated with an excerpt of the 2009 documentary “Millenium: The Story” on the life and work of Stieg Larsson, featuring an interview with Noomi on playing Lisbeth Salander (the interview was taped during rehearsals for Medealand). Then, a making of for “The Girl Who Played with Fire” – very interesting to see how the final scene of the film was made. And finally, an on-set interview with Noomi while shooting “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”. Enjoy the new clips!
Some amazing on-set pictures of Noomi’s latest Swedish film, “Beyond”, have been added to the gallery. The new uploads are accompanied by public appearances pictures from the “Beyond” photocall in stockholm, the “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” photocall in Amsterdam (January 2010) as well as the “The Girl Who Played with Fire” photocall in Stockholm (September 2009).
Added more video clips from the “Millenium” trilogy to the site’s new video archive. Have a look at the overview below and enjoy watching!
Over 1.300 high quality DVD captures from “The Girl Who Played with Fire” have been added to the Image Library. Just like the caps from the first installment, be aware that these include spoilers of the film, so better don’t view them if you haven’t seen it yet ;-) Caps from the third and last part will be added in time. Enjoy!
