Dragon Tattoo opening a week ago in the U.S. with box office results below expectations, one could wonder indeed if Fincher was misunderstood. Blame it on bad timing (''Feel bad movie of Christmas' really?), M.I.5 competition, or the Swedish original being too fresh in moviegoers' minds. Who knows...
It's probably too early to comment on the box office since let's remember the thriller was mostly a Euro book sensation before being imported to the States. So let's wait for the foreign grosses, shall we?
I think [Fincher's] wildly misunderstood, kind of like the character.
