ToDo ToDay: Trinidad James and Top Chef Alumni

Trinidad James’ credentials are easy to pick apart: He didn’t know how to rap until 2011, he made his name on YouTube, and his most successful mixtape bears the ridiculous acronym Don’t Be S.A.F.E. (Sensitive as Fuck Everyday). He’s a post-2Chainz, second-wave-of-gold-jewelry revivalist; I’ll be surprised if he’s on anyone’s radar this time next year. Yet [...]

Lincoln Theatre Extends Dragon Tattoo

The Lincoln Theatre will show The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo for an additional week, the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities announced today. Yesterday's co-presentation with the Embassy of Sweden was supposed to be the film's final night at the U Street NW venue, but DCCAH says the film has been so popular, they're [...]

Three Reasons Why the Lincoln Is an Awkward Movie House

I had a good time seeing The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo last night at the Lincoln Theatre—so much gloomier than Downton Abbey!—and I'm still convinced that booking the four-week run was a good move for the struggling, often-empty U Street NW venue. The D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities took over the theater [...]

Dragon Tattoo at Lincoln Theatre: Where to Get Tickets

Last week, Landmark Theatres announced that it would host a four-week run of David Fincher's wildly anticipated The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo at Lincoln Theatre. All proceeds will benefit the ailing venue, which, come Jan. 1, will be managed by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
But forget all that: Where do we buy [...]

The Lincoln Gets Programming That Could Actually Draw a Crowd

It's a Christmas miracle for the Lincoln Theatre! Per DCmud, the city is expected to announce today that:
Landmark Theatres will sponsor The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, David Fincher's $150-million Hollywood adaption of the wildly popular book, one in a trilogy of novels by the late Swedish writer Stieg Larsson. [...]

David Fincher Alert

From the very bottom of The Washington Post's profile of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director David Fincher:
He also emphasizes how much easier it is now to have intimate collaboration among far-flung members of a production [thanks to mobile technology]. “Every time there’s a new iPhone app,” he says, “I look at it and go, how [...]

Exclusive: 20th Century Fox Slams Olszewski for Early Chipwrecked Review

A lot of folks are talking today about an email exchange, leaked to IndieWire, in which Hollywood super producer Scott Rudin rebukes New Yorker film critic David Denby for reviewing The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo ahead of its Dec. 13 embargo date. Over the weekend—at exactly the same time, in fact!—I received a similar [...]

This Week in Film: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Neil Young Trunk Show

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is a violent tale of rape and murder—with scattered moments of levity. Noomi Rapace plays the main character, Lisbeth, to perfection as a brilliant, angry, and antisocial hacker. (She scooped up Sweden's Best Actress Oscar-equivalent for her performance in the titular role.) Based on a book of the same [...]
