'Dragon Tattoo' sequel won't be released in 2013, still in the works -- EXCLUSIVE

The Girl Who Played With Fire, the sequel to last year’s David Fincher-directed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, will not be in theaters late next year as had originally been hoped, a source close to the production tells EW. Dragon Tattoo screenwriter Steven Zaillian is still working on the script, and nothing will move forward until the screenplay is nailed down. While there’s still no director attached, Fincher remains the first choice and hasn’t ruled out returning. And despite the uncertain timetable, the film is still definitely moving forward, although the source says that they are not in a rush and at this point there is no information about when it might be released. In November, Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairman Amy Pascal told us that stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig were both locked in for the sequel.

'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Blu-ray: Behind the scenes with David Fincher and Steve Zaillian -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In case you decided against seeing David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in theaters because its bruise-black Scandinavian nihilism wasn’t quite the holiday pick-me-up you were looking for, the good news is it finally comes out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow. But even if you have seen Daniel Craig inhabit the role of disgraced investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara’s harrowing, Oscar-nominated turn as the pierced cyber-sleuth Lisbeth Salander, you might want to check it out again on Blu-ray — if for no other reason than to take a deep dive in the disc’s four hours of extras.

In addition to an audio commentary with the exacting Fincher that you won’t want to miss, there are plenty of Millennium trilogy bits and bobs to keep you inside just as the weather’s getting nice again. Entertainment Weekly has two exclusive clips of what you can look forward to. READ FULL STORY

Oscars 2012 Behind the Scenes: How the hypnotizing 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' opening credits came to be

Each year, the Oscars recognize A-list talent we regularly see on-screen, on the red carpet, and in tabloids. But the Academy Awards also reward those who work behind the scenes: the writers, editors, costume designers, and others who help create trophy-worthy movie magic. This Oscars season, we’ll be toasting those off-screen artists by delving into the hidden secrets that helped create the on-screen magic that we — and the Academy — fell in love with. For more access backstage during this Oscars season, click here for EW.com’s Oscars Behind the Scenes coverage.

David Fincher is known for regularly delivering thought-provoking, stylish films that often stay with you for weeks, but the director is not given enough credit for his artistic touch on the opening credits for his films, which often play out like moody short films in and of themselves. Couldn’t sleep for a while thanks the chilling ending of Se7en? Those creepy, foreshadowing opening credits probably didn’t help you get a wink either. The manic opening for Fight Club set the stage for the cult favorite, while Zodiacs haunting puzzler made viewers inevitably go back for a second (or third… or fourth) look. And, this year, the Oscar-nominated adaptation The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo boasted an opening to join the pantheon of great Fincher credits.

EW spoke with Tim Miller, the Creative Director of  Blur, the design studio responsible for those dark and thrilling Dragon Tattoo opening credits, on how Fincher approached him for the project, how the two-and-a-half-minute sequence was made, and why moviegoers have reacted to the sequence the way they have.

All 20 Oscar acting nominees pose for official Oscar 'school' portraits. Which is your favorite?

For this year’s Oscars, the 20 acting nominees have posed for photographer Douglas Kirkland in what the Academy calls “Out of Character: Portraits of This Year’s Acting Nominees.” Clicking through them, two things quickly become clear: One, with rare exception, the men weren’t too keen on being creative with their poses. And two, with rare exception, the women were keen on doing anything but a straight-forward pose.

Basically, they’re like the fanciest school portraits ever. Here are my four favorites from the acting categories, starting with Best Supporting Actor (all credits to Douglas Kirkland and AMPAS):  READ FULL STORY

'The Artist' wins big at the Directors Guild Awards

The Directors Guild of America announced its annual awards tonight at a ceremony in the Grand Ballroom above the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The Artist‘s Michel Hazanavicius took home the prize for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Feature Film. Fellow nominees Martin Scorsese (Hugo) and Alexander Payne (The Descendants) also spoke at the event while accepting their nomination medallions. As is his custom for awards events, nominee Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris) was not present; nominee David Fincher (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) had to fly to the premiere of his film in Tokyo, Japan, although he did attend the nominee breakfast Saturday morning.

Hosted by Kelsey Grammer, the evening also feted directors for feature documentaries, and TV dramas, comedies, reality shows, made-for-TV movies and miniseries, soap operas, children’s programming, and commercials.

Since 1948, the DGA Award winner for feature film has gone on to win the Academy Award for Best Director every year save for six exceptions, most recently when Rob Marshall took home the DGA Award for Chicago in 2002, while Roman Polanski won the Oscar for The Pianist.

Owen's awards-movie scorecard: Who said all this stuff gets to be decided before the movies even come out?

A few weeks ago, the holiday movie season — or, at least, the conventional wisdom on it — went a little nutty. The media decreed the following things: that Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, with a $39.6 million opening weekend gross, was a disappointment; that Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, with a $23 million opening-weekend gross, was also a disappointment; and that The Descendants (closing in on $30 million) was underperforming. These weren’t opinions — they were incontrovertible movie-industry facts, delivered with the requisite tut-tutting of sky-is-falling doom. As for the awards season, that had all been sorted out, thank you, even though most of the relevant films had barely even begun to be seen by audiences. The Artist, mopping up critics’ awards, had Harvey Weinstein behind it, going into full-court-press Oscar mode, so of course it was foregone that that was going to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Best Actor looked like a runoff between George Clooney and The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin. And The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? Sorry, not even in the running. Not an “awards film.” (Too violent! Too pulpy!) READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'The Devil Inside' summons $34.5 million, lords over 'Mission: Impossible'

Devil-Inside

The 2012 box office got off to a fine start this weekend, as Paramount’s “found footage” (riiiight…) horror movie The Devil Inside, which the studio acquired for just under $1 million, earned a tremendous $34.5 million in its first three days, becoming the first breakout box office star since The Lion King 3D. In fact, the strong debut marks the third-best January opening of all time behind Cloverfield ($40.1 million) and a re-release of Star Wars ($35.9 million). Is this a sign of things to come in 2012?
