Dragon Tattoo: Overdose

+++ UPDATE 02/13 +++ Do not miss this unmissable DP/30 interview w/ Kirk Baxter and Angus Wall: Thanks, Mikez, for this find (see video below). Amazing stuff!

Come on, I know you guys were thinking that'll be the title of the sequel, and yeah, it would be a great title, wouldn't it. Nuh, what I really want to bring to your attention is this: It seems a four hour+ special features marathon is waiting for you, to be included on the "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Special Edition DVD and BluRay. Now THAT doesn't sound too shabby, huh?

Big thanks to Inge for letting us know about this, and big thanks to the Fincher crew for putting together another fantastic package for the fans. As the movies.com post makes sure to honor, Fincher always devotes his attention to behind-the-scenes features and makes sure that his home video releases contain insightful features for young filmmakers. It seems, the specials for TGWTDT will be no different: From the list of featurettes we can assume there will be insights into the casting process, interviews on film acting, a feature of the Academy Award winning editors behind the picture, as well as featurettes on Automated Dialogue Replacement and Visual Effects.

The VFX one should be especially exciting, as 'Dragon Tattoo' certainly is all but a flashy, in-your-face effects movie. I know of a couple fx shots in this film, I would have never guess even came near a computer.

And to know it's all coming so soon -- just fantastic!

And there's a little more, here: Fellow Fincher fanatic Philipp dug up this collider interview with Rooney Mara, talking about her experience on the first, and her expectations for the next films in the Millennium series. It seems no director nor production date has been set as of yet... but I sure am excited who will take the reigns, and when we will see the follow-up installments.

  5. This is great news! I was kind of WTF when I first heard the TGWTDT blueray/dvd won't be having any special behind the scene footage, especially after the awesomness that was on The Social Network blueray. We got spoiled nothing else will do.

  6. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE EXTRAS ON TGWTDT BLURAY?

    As we saw some days ago in UK the BBCC had rated alot of good features for the disc. Now comes the extras list from the US and I can only say "It does not look the same".
    What gives? Just a mess up with the US extras or are we going to miss out on the great list from the UK?

    Look at both here.

    2. Are these bonus materials going to be on the same disc as the movie or will they put them on a separate disc?

      I want the movie to have the best bitrate possible ;)

      Delete
  7. 260mins. Pretty sure it will be on a separate disc.

    If not I`m sure they will use a BD 50. 50GB disc.

  8. It's spread across two blu-rays.

    See here for the full press release from Sony ~

    And here for comment from David Prior, the DVD Producer ~

    And a lo-res picture of the rear cover of the Blu-ray, indicating that it would appear to be a multi-region disc. Which is nice. ~
