After hearing about the Swedish movie, I found out that Hollywood decided to do a US version. And I cringed. I was extremely afraid that the actors in the US version would be 'pretty'--not what the characters in the book were described like, at all. And I had no better feel about the new version when I saw who they cast as Lisbeth:

Look at that sweet face! How could she POSSIBLY be the troubled soul that is Lisbeth Salander? I KNEW this would be a disaster. And then I saw this:

It looks like they did a good job transforming her into the character--hopefully the girl can act. We'll have to see just how close to the book the movie stays--THAT will determine whether it is as good/better than the original. I am very much looking forward to this--so much, that I just may go to the theater and see it there. I don't do this often, at all, so it better be worth it. The trailer is very interesting:
So, are there any movies you are looking forward to seeing this winter?
