As the Shots team enjoyed viewing David Fincher’s version of Stieg Larsson’s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, we were delighted to be invited to the
press launch of The
Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on Blu-ray and DVD. The launch was hosted at
new London Film Museum, UK Covent Garden, where an exclusive exhibition of iconic
film and book memorabilia from the David Fincher film was on display. It was
apt that the display was in the Exhibition Vaults, suitably creepy considering
the dark Imagery of the source material. The exhibition includes a tattoo booth
where the Shots team got themselves emblazoned with the iconic tattoos as
fashioned by Rooney Mara [aka Lisabeth
Salander]. The other displays included film props, such as the torture
devices, the wall flower frames that emblazoned Henrik Vanger’s wall, photo
still, audio visual displays and much more, all in the creepy vaults of The
London Film Museum. The exhibition is well worth a visit but a warning – it is
strictly over 18’s only.
Museum’s brand new exhibition space
follows a multi-million pound refurbishment of the original Flower Cellars in
the heart of Covent Garden.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – the gripping, hard-edged thriller based on the first of Stieg Larsson’s suspenseful and spell-binding “Millennium” trilogy – arrives on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital Download on April 23. This highly anticipated motion picture from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment brings together an all-star ensemble cast led by Daniel Craig (James Bond franchise), Rooney Mara (The Social Network),and Stellan Skarsgård (Thor).

If you wish to attend the exhibition, note that the entrance to the Vaults is off Covent Garden Piazza next to the
and well worth a visit, but note it is restricted for Adults Only. London
