THE STEIG LARSON TRILOGY is NOT the complete, uncut version of the Swedish TV presentation. I E-mailed B. Brown at MUSIC BOX FILMS, and he said that the uncut versions will be released later this year.

  1. I have the 4 DVD boxed set – these are the Film versions, significantly shorter.

    The reason the total minutes of Boxed Set seems right compared to the 3 Swedish TV versions is there is a “Making of DVD” that tacks on an hour to the total running time of the edited shorter films.

    The Sedish series will be out soon:

    MUSIC BOX TO RELEASE SEQUELS TO THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

    Chicago, IL?.Music Box Films is pleased to announce the forthcoming US cinematic release of the Swedish versions of THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE and THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNETS? NEST directed by Daniel Alfredson and based on Stieg Larsson?s books of the same name. These films, produced by Yellow Bird a Zodiak Entertainment Company, round out the Lisbeth Salander trilogy that begins with THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, opening across the United States on March 19. Noomi Rapace and Mikael Nyqvist reprise their successful portrayal of Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomqvist in these films, already box office hits in Europe.

    In THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE Mikael Blomkvist is about to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society. On the eve of publication, the two investigating reporters are murdered and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to Lisbeth Salander.

    In THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNETS? NEST Lisbeth Salander is fighting for her life in more ways than one. In intensive care and charged with three murders, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Salander is fighting back.

    Music Box partners Edward Arentz and William Schopf negotiated the deal with Emmanuelle Bouilhaguet and Cecile Cau of Zodiak Entertainment, the film?s international sales agent. The films have now sold throughout the world.

    Music Box?s Schopf describes the Lisbeth Salander story as addictive, ?It is the cinematic equivalent of the best kind of page turner. Once you have seen Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander, you want more of her playing that role.?

    Emmanuelle Bouilhaguet, Scripted Sales Director at Zodiak Entertainment Distribution said ?The box office figures from the opening weekend in the US prove yet again that Millennium has a global appeal to cinema audiences. We are very excited that Music Box will release the second and third films in the trilogy as a result of the success of the first film. The USA is historically a very tough market for foreign films to crack which makes us all the more proud of this amazing product in the Zodiak Entertainment Distribution portfolio. We are extremely pleased that our international movie phenomenon continues to appeal across the globe.?

    Both films begin their US theatrical release in summer 2010.

  2. Is there an uncut version of the individual movies or the trilogy available for purchase in the US? I just can’t imagine watching any thing else but the original?

  3. the movies are absolutely awful-the actor who plays Blomqvist has no range and projects zero intelligence, Rapace is better but does not come close to bringing the Salander of the book to the screen..I suppose the writer and director should get the lion’s share of the blame, they decided to turn the books into standard thrillers, which the books are not..

  4. Well I completely disagree with Vas in Washington, D.C., but that’s neither here nor there.

    I’ve read all the books – 3 times each. Loved them.

    I recently purchased “The Dragon Trilogy” Extended version and fell in love all over again with the films. But the version I purchased was not in BluRay hi-def. So I will use that versiion as a lending copy. I just purchased the BluRay version which was just released. Delivered just a few days ago. Just beautiful to watch. I also have a copy of the Hollywood version of GWTDT (don’t ask me how) and have watched that a few times. Without getting into a long description I can say that neither version (Swedish or American) slavishly adhere to the book. There is some artistic license taken by both sets of directors and screenwriters. Nevertheless, I enjoy/love both versions and the differing characterizations developed by Noomi Rapace (who will also be AWESOME in “Prometheus”) and Rooney Mara. ‘Nuff said.
