It is one of the few films I’ll be mad if I don’t see in the cinema, now that it’s out.
‘The Girl Who Played With Fire' is, of course, the sequel to “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and hit our cinema screens last weekend.
I loved the first film in the Millennium series - distinctly dark, scary and compulsive viewing, so will try to make this one. Haven’t read the books before though!
The official movie synopsis:
Lisbeth Salander (NOOMI RAPACE) returns in THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE.
Salander is forced to go back to Sweden from her Caribbean exile when she discovers her guardian, Bjurman (PETER ANDERSSON), is breaking the conditions of their ‘arrangement.’
Meanwhile, Mikael Blomkvist (MICHAEL NYQVIST) is back at Millennium magazine intent on exposing a billion dollar sex trafficking ring controlled by high profile government officials.
When Bjurman is found murdered and two Millennium researchers are shot dead by Bjurman’s gun, Salander’s fingerprints are on the weapon and she emerges as the police’s chief suspect. Determined to prove her innocence, Blomkvist attempts to track down his former partner and lover and uncover the truth.
Already in hiding, Salander is forced to go on the run and soon stumbles upon secrets of her own past.
I’ve been given five merchandise packs to give away to celebrate the launch of the film. Each pack includes a t-shirt and a copy of the Stieg Larsson novel.

Here’s the official movie synopsis:
Expendable: capable of being sacrificed in order to accomplish a military objective.
THE EXPENDABLES is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator.
Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren’t quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge – one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors.
His is a true cynic who describes what he does as “removing those hard to get at stains.” The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.
When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, Barney and his team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena and end the years of death and destruction inflicted on its people.
On a reconnaissance mission to Vilena, Barney and Christmas meet their contact Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom-fighter with a dark secret. They also come to learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin).
When things go terribly wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra behind, essentially giving her a death sentence. Haunted by this failure, Barney convinces the team to return to Vilena to rescue the hostage and finish the job he started. And to perhaps save a soul: his own.
Written and directed by Sylvester Stallone; Produced by Avi Lerner, John Thompson and Kevin King Templeton and starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Giselle Itie, Eric Roberts, David Zayas and Steve Austin.
