They spent insane amounts of money on marketing, so it isn't shocking.

I believe the release date for the film really hurt its box office draw. I love Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I didn't like the mood it brings around Christmas. It would have been better in October or September.

The Snowy setting is probably the reason why it recieved a Christmas Release Date.

September/October isn't time to open a hundred million dollar movie though. Christmas= days off= bigger box office draw.

True. With the exception of fans and some cinephiles who were interested in this film, I see no reason for a regular moviegoer to go see this during a feel good season.

The budget for the movie was $100 million wasn't it? So marketing was more then $131 million?


I find this very hard to believe.
