Sony designs ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ DVD to look like a bootleg copy of the film
The DVD version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” will hit U.S. shelves this week, but if you have purchased the disc in advance, rest assured that you did not receive a bootleg copy of the David Fincher-directed thriller.
It may look like a burned DVD-R but Sony Pictures have confirmed that they designed the disc and its packaging to reflect the hacker theme of the movie, and perhaps also to give emphasis to the growing problem of piracy.
Purchasing your very own DVD copy of “TGWTDT” could mean you take Rooney Mara seriously, you’re a movie buff who hates leechers seriously, or you just want to blow off extra cash. Whatever the case may be, you can’t deny that Sony’s concept is brilliant.
