At advance screenings of 'Straw Dogs' around the country on Wednesday night, lucky members of the media and general public were shown an eight-minute sizzle reel of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.' (Both 'Straw Dogs' and 'Dragon Tattoo' belong to Sony Pictures.) Reactions to the David Fincher-directed footage -- which also featured a good chunk of the film's score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross -- varied between fawning and awestruck, though whether it will get released online in some capacity (perhaps via the viral Tumblr blog Mouth Taped Shut) is currently unknown. Before you buy tickets to showings of 'Straw Dogs' on Friday, note that Slashfilm reports the reel won't be attached to prints of the Rod Lurie-directed film this weekend. [Slashfilm]
