Costume Designers Guild Honors 'Tattoo,' 'Potter,' 'W.E.'

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

A cardinal rule of moviemaking has always been, "Show. Don't tell."

And no one knows this truth to be more paramount than the Costume Designers Guild — these are the people who turn Rooney Mara into Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Radcliffe into Harry Potter.

GALLERY: Our 15 Favorite Women in Black

In "The Woman in Black," Harry Potter himself (or rather, Daniel Radcliffe) takes on the darker side of the supernatural as he investigates a haunted estate and the dark history that brought one of its former residents back from the grave for revenge.

The "Woman" of the title is kind of a pain in the butt, what with all the murdering and all; but not every similarly clad woman is quite so gloomy. Some of our favorite filmic females have donned a dark look for some memorable roles, no doubt bolstered by the fact that black is slimming.

As Wesley Snipes said in "Passenger 57": "Always bet on black."

David Fincher Reveals the Secret of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'


When David Fincher agreed to direct Sony's adaptation of Steig Larsson's wildly popular bestseller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," he had a very tall task ahead of him: Not only had tens of millions of people already imagined their own version of the story, the Swedish film adaptation starring Noomi Rapace was a runaway international blockbuster as well.

10 Movie Franchises Get Disney-fied

Beauty and the Beast 3D

Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" was first released in 1991, but it's still as fresh and appealing today as it was 21 years ago, which a new generation of moviegoers will find out with the film's 3-D re-release this week.

What's responsible for the studio's lasting success? In part, it's the marketing. Disney movies have an unmistakable look and charm that gives us the warm and fuzzies. (You know your studio's in good shape when a film that grossed over $100 million was considered a failure, as was the case with Disney's 2009 release, "The Princess and the Frog.")

What would the Disney magic do if applied to other films? We imagine what 10 other big movie franchises would like if they were created by the Mouse House.

'Dragon' Is Laggin', But 'Girl Who Played With Fire' Is Still on Its Way


For torture porn enthusiasts who still like to fancy themselves intellectuals, there may have been no better Christmas present than David Fincher's love letter to bleached eyebrows and revenge, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

However, many film industry insiders are wondering if the franchise is sustainable due to the first movie's relatively low box office numbers, grossing just $60 million in its first two weeks. Get More »
