There is no other franchise I have been as completely unable to keep up with as I have than with Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy. We're talking a total failure here - I have not picked up one of the books (and I've been in enough airports to be very tempted), and I've yet to watch any of the well-regarded Swedish film adaptations. I would love to tell you all, dear readership, that will all change by the time we get to see David Fincher's English language take, starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, but I can't lie. I might just have to trot into that theater, sight unseen. Except for this trailer!

For all you Millennium-heads out there (don't know if that's the official tag for fans of the series, but I am going with it), the Swedish THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST, the final chapter in the series, hits the big screen on October 29. What is the Swedish for "damn, that was fast?" After the break, I've got the first trailer for you, along with an official synopsis. I watched it, I liked it, things just might be changing for me and my Millennium Trilogy-free life.

Official synopsis: In THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNETS’ NEST – the final installment of the “Millenium Trilogy” – Lisbeth Salander is fighting for her life in more ways than one. In intensive care and charged with three murders, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Salander is fighting back.

And, if you are a fan but you're still behind on the rapidfire Swedish adaptations, the second film in the series, THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE will be available On-Demand and on DVD on October 26.
