Back during the last weekend of May, the Internet had a collective meltdown over a possibly leaked/possibly "leaked" red band trailer for 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.' (Long story short: a somewhat perfectly pirated copy of the 'Dragon Tattoo' trailer leaked online, in stereo, and wasn't pulled from YouTube for nearly five days.) Now, more potential viral-y shenanigans from the highly anticipated David Fincher-directed release: a Tumblr blog that showcases some behind-the-scenes videos and pics. Lisbeth Salander would be so proud!
On first glance, Mouth Taped Shut appears to be another 'Dragon Tattoo' fan blog, but a closer inspection reveals what amounts to a production diary featuring one video that appears to have been filmed inside the edit bay. Major security breach from the inside of a blockbuster motion picture or clever bit of viral marketing designed to keep with the theme of the Steig Larsson novel? You decide.
'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' - with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in lead roles - reaches theaters on Dec. 23. Watch the video below, before it gets yanked down from YouTube.
