David Fincher, the director behind the upcoming Girl With the Dragon Tattoo film weighed in on the embargo imbroglio with The New Yorker‘s David Denby during an interview with the Miami Herald yesterday.
“…If it were up to me, I wouldn’t show movies to anybody before they were released. I wouldn’t give clips to talk shows. I would do one trailer and three television spots and let the chips fall where they may,” the story says (italics, theirs). “Ultimately, movies live or die by word of mouth anyway. All that other stuff doesn’t matter.”
An article on Slate kind of bolsters this argument.
