A funny thing about 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo': audiences seem to love the film (David Fincher's adaptation of Stieg Larsson's rape-y novel has received an A-grade on Cinemascore), critics and major filmmakers do as well, and ticket sales for a nearly three-hour R-rated thriller during the holiday season have been solid. Thus far, 'Tattoo' has grossed over $60 million at the box office, and -- with little competition through the next month -- should be able to hit $100 million domestically, plus whatever millions more the film grabs overseas. And yet! In some quarters, 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' is being looked at like a disappointment. Not in at the offices of Sony, though, where plans are full-steam ahead on the next entry in Larsson's Millenium trilogy, 'The Girl Who Played With Fire.'
