my.yahoo is one of the search engines I use frequently for determining when and where I’ll be when I’m in the mood for a movie. I’ve been watchful these past couple weeks for commercial teasers contain upcoming movies that will start Friday 19 March 2010. That’s the day The girl with the dragon tattoo will be released. See here, for a link of theaters that are scheduling showings of this movie beginning next week. Yahoo only had enough information on this foreign film to indicate that it will be a limited release.
I then started to search for theaters that I’ve visited in the past to watch small budget, independent, limited release movies. That wasn’t helpful at all since not many theaters will allow their Internet audience to look in advance for possible titles scheduled to open on a later date. What’s the information age for, if you can’t do something as simple as to inquire about upcoming movies? I gave up on that quickly enough for googling the title with the keyword string girlwiththedragontattoo hoping that google would find a dedicated website for the movie the way other big budget films attempt to advertise to film enthusiasts. What I found was an on-line contest
╽ and, alas, a list of locations containing theaters running this film: Florida, Texas, Illinois, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and Washington. All these states, including Cali, will have theaters showing this film.
In California, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Encino are cities I would consider driving out to for my movie fix. And I was right in suspecting that Laemmles theatre would be showing this flick. I have to work that Friday, but I’ll have the entire weekend to myself. Ironic that the official U.S. website for this suspense thriller would harbor a treasure hunt theme because the only reason I’m so anxious to see this film is because I'm curious about the character which the author describes in the book as “She of TV4” and I’m hoping this is a clue to my quest to distinguish a news reporter from an old friend I used to know.
The first blog I stumbled upon contained a clue. For some unknown reason, each blog that I find a movie review of this film seems to contain a clue. The original clue is given at the site where the contest begins, www.dragontattoofilm.com
