Fincher Film Fact: Two of the Zodiac’s victims, Michael Mageau, 19, and Darlene Ferrin, 22, were shot on July 4, 1969 in the parking lot of Blue Rock Springs Park in Vallejo. Mageau was the only one to survive the attack.
The trailer for David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which ‘leaked’ around this time last year, won Best Drama Trailer at this year’s Golden Trailer Awards held on Thursday. The film’s trailer was also nominated in the Best In Show category, but lost to The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman series, out next month.
In addition, it was also nominated in the Best TV Spot category for the “Investigation” spot and in the Best Thriller category for the “Character” spot featuring tattooed hacker Lisbeth Salander.
I was recently asked why David Fincher’s U.S. Director’s Cut Blu-ray for Zodiac is highly sought after and sells for incredibly high prices, and the answer to that cypher is because Paramount Pictures only had the Blu-ray in print for one year.
Probably the largest reason why it is so valuable is because the picture quality is considered to be one of the most perfect video transfers available on Blu-ray. The film, which was filmed with a Thomson Viper camera for much of the principal photography, boasts a perfect, high quality video transfer for the U.S. edition of the Blu-ray. This edition’s quality is considerably better than the quality on other Blu-ray releases of the film that are widely-available.
This, plus the grandeur of David Fincher’s film making, combined with his absolute attention to detail to the time period presented in Zodiac, is why the U.S. Director’s Cut Blu-ray is a real collectible.
