Check Out New "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Trailer! Is This Better than the Swedish Version? 
I can't wait to see this movie just to do my own compare and contrast assignment. Like "Let Me In" before it, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is an update of the fantastic Swedish film directed by Niels Arden Oplev based on Stieg Larsson's novel "Man som hatar kvinnor."

So, will Rooney Mara be better than Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander? Is Daniel Craig good enough to step into Michael Nyqvist's shoes as Mikael Blomkvist?

And does David Fincher understand the intricacies of Larsson's tale as deep as Oplev did?

We'll find out on December 21st when the American version arrives in theaters. For now, take a look at the brand, spanking new trailer of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," the U.S. version, of course!

Morgan Freeman Talks About "Dolphin Tale" and His Love of Science! 


When I first met Morgan Freeman for “Born to be Wild,” he called me the “happiest man on Earth.” So I was curious to see if he still deemed me as a fun-loving creature, and he said yes!

In the fantastic family film “Dolphin Tale,” Freeman stars as Dr. Cameron McCarthy, the prosthetics doctor who gave Winter a new chance on life by giving her the tail. The star shows up in the film with an unkempt look but with a very neatly-tied bowtie. In this interview, we talked about:

What attracted him to his character in the movie?
The look of his character
Working with Ashley Judd for the third time
Freeman is becoming the quintessential science man such as his Science Channel show, “Through the Worm Hole”
His attraction to science
Bonding with animals

HAVE FUN!



Here's more info on "Dolphin Tale" from Yahoo:

Swimming free, a young dolphin is caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail. She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter. But her fight for survival has just begun. Without a tail, Winter's prognosis is dire. It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring about a groundbreaking miracle -- a miracle that might not only save Winter but could also help scores of people around the world. The real Winter, who plays herself in "Dolphin Tale," today serves as a symbol of courage, perseverance and hope to millions of people -- both able and disabled -- who have been touched by her remarkable story of recovery and rehabilitation.

I love Harry Connick Jr.! He’s sweet, charming, and he remembered me from my first time meeting him for the movie “New in Town.” In “Dolphin Tale,” the actor plays Dr. Clay Haskett, the inspiring man who runs the Clearwater Marine Hospital.

It’s always a pleasure talking to this multi-faceted gentleman! In this interview, we talked about:

The incredible bond between humans and animals
Meeting Winter for the first time
What attracted him to his character?
The film’s “too good to be true” if it’s not based on real-life
Working on the set
His real-life counterpart, David Yates
Shifting gears, the actor and I decided to talk about Filipino Food! Yum! Balot, dinuguan, and many more!

HAVE FUN!
