New Layout at the Movies!

In what can only be described as a random moment this morning I decided to change the layout of the blog. While I have not by any means completely sorted it all out yet, I am impressed with some of the extra’s I can use with this layout. So onwards and upwards for Let’s Go To The Movies.

What do you think of the new layout?

Cowboys & Aliens (2011) Daniel Craig

Well it seems that I must have nothing something good recently and getting my reward in the form of Daniel Craig news and now a picture from next year’s film Cowboys & Aliens. He does look very Indiana Jones like in this picture. I am having Daniel Craig overload (again) which is actually brilliant. Especially when Quantum of Solace was on TV the other night and I just had to watch it. I am starting to think I should have a Daniel Craig film night, I do have a lot of his films on DVD! Maybe even a Daniel Craig blog-fest, well that ship may have already sailed with the amount of posts about Daniel being a few in as many days!

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) – Casting Lisbeth Salander

Daniel Craig has been confirmed as Mikael Bromkvist in the Hollywood version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and now the attention will be turning to who will play the part of Lisabeth Salander! And this is exactly what this blog post is going to have a look into, who has already been linked with the part and who would be the best choice. All of the actresses who have been linked with the role are young and have quite a lot of critical acclaim towards them. However, for each actress that I will be looking at for the role none of them have ever played a character anything like Salander. I’m not saying that Salander is common by no means, she is a very complex character tough, rather kick ass and has an attitude. When you see the actresses considered for the role you will understand that they have not done that type of role which makes this all so much more difficult to try and imagine them being a very strong woman. Who has to endure a lot but then gets to have her revenge as well. It is going to be a very difficult and challenging role for whoever is lucky enough to get the part!

Noomi Rapace who took on the task of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version’s of the triology has ruled herself out of this film stating that she is quite simply done with the character. Understandable really as she won’t have enough ‘star power’ for a mainstream film which will attract the audiences.
