Steig Larsson The Man Who Played With Fire Trailer

Trailer for Sundance Headed “The Man Who Played With Fire” Shines Light on Renowned Author

Just ahead of its premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, The Match Factory has released an intoxicating trailer for Henrik Georgsson’s Stieg Larsson: The Man Who Played With Fire.

Based on the trailer for the new documentary, Larsson, writer of the ever popular Millennium novels, is much more than a renowned author.  In fact, from first sight, this film appears to reveal that Larsson had an obsession with political groups (mainly right-wing extremists and neo-Nazis) and their migration throughout the world.  

It is this part of Larsson’s life that appears to take center stage, and it will be most interesting to see just how much information/access the creators were granted as they unveil a secret part of the late writer.  And while Stieg himself isn’t here to defend his beliefs, by way of the film, it appears that his fight for democracy will live on through one medium that helped make him a household name.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
