“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” nets roughly $1.6M Tuesday night

hollywoodnews.com: It earned the tagline, “The Feel-Bad Movie of the Christmas Season.” But early figures indicate plenty of people are interested in a Black Christmas this weekend.

David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” got a jump-start on the holiday box office frame Tuesday night, opening in the late evening to collect a few ticket sales ahead of its “official” opening today.

THR reports that Fincher’s adaptation of Larsson’s novel took in an estimated $1.6 million Tuesday night. As the trade points out, comparisons to similar openings “are difficult, since it’s unusual to open a film in the early evening,” and the film’s expected to increase its business through word of mouth as Sony hopes it will be “the adult alternative to other Christmas pics.”

That includes two features from Steven Spielberg in “War Horse” and “The Adventures of Tintin,” as well as Cameron Crowe’s uplifting family drama, “We Bought a Zoo.”
