"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" Opens Friday at Flicks

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 4:08 PM

Huzzahs were heard around the world when word came out that Swedish writer Stieg Larsson's 2008 bestseller The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo had been re-imagined for the big screen.

A trilogy of thrillers which includes The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (the original title of which was Men Who Hate Women; misogyny plays a large role in the story) The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest were published posthumously (Larsson died of a heart attack in 2004) and struck a chord with readers across the world.

The books' popularity has been due in large part to Larsson's ability to weave together crime novels using the threads of incredible characters, most notably, determined journalist Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, a young, troubled, tattooed woman who is an utter genius with computers and completely inept with people.

The film, which is in Swedish with English subtitles, was originally scheduled to open at Flicks on Friday, April 9, (Huzzah!) and then was pushed back to Friday, April 30 (Sob)—but we got word a few moments ago that it will, indeed, open this Friday with screenings at 1:25 p.m., 4:25 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.. (Huzzah!)
