We understand trailer-makers' anxiety when it comes to putting together an enticing clip reel for a foreign film. The anxiety being, subtitles are boring. But you know what’s also boring? Trailers composed of quick cuts from a film, seemingly pieced together to create a mounting sense of action and drama, but really selected so as to avoid all dialogue, and thus the dreaded subtitles. Take this trailer for The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, which is all quick cuts, no talking, and dramatic music as if after two other movies and millions of books the "Millennium" series' Swedish provenance is either unknown, or would still be best kept a secret. It's cool, guys, we know we have to wait for the American version of these movies for the characters to speak English, so, if you feel like including a scene longer than two seconds, that might be a nice break from the strobe-light effect! On the other, better hand, Lisbeth Salander's Mohawk is looking very, very sharp.
