We have been wondering for a long time what mouthtapedshut.com, the tumblr site for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, was really all about, was it a viral site or was it just a site for teaser images? Sony’s newly launched ComesForthintheThaw.com, we can surmise it is the latter. Hit the jump to see what this new site is all about.
As hinted in their newest post (via Slashfilm), Comesforthinthethaw.com opens with a white background with text that reads “What is hidden in the snow, comes forth in the thaw. Clicking on the link takes you to a new page. We can hear yet another teaser for the score conducted by Trenzt Reznor and Atticus Ross and a POV look of Milleninum, the magazine that Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) runs. As cycle of ice begins to cover the screen and is quickly thawed out and the image becomes clearer to reveal sounds of trains and announcements, doors opening, water running, what sounds like to be a struggle, and some conversing between two characters.
We can’t make much of this now, but this site takes from the mystery and specter of mouthtapedshut.com. Having never read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I can only expect this mystery to grow darker even when clues shed more light.
