In the Vaults of The Dragon Tattoo

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 UK press launch of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on Blu-ray and DVD. The launch was hosted at new London Film Museum, 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.

The London Film 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).
