The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest

Over the year as the Millennium Trilogy films came out Carrie and myself have been watching and enjoying them and Tuesday night we went to see the concluding film: The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest

However, I'm rather confused as to what the name of the book/film is, specifically the position of the apostrophe, because it seems to be either Hornets' or Hornet's depending on where you look. Because I'm really boring, here's a small list of each:

Hornets' Nest
  • Front of the actual book
  • Stieg Larsson official site
  • Wikipedia
Hornet's Nest
  • BBFC certificate at the start of the film!
  • Amazon
  • Google
  • IMDB
As far as I'm aware, it should be Hornets' (and Mr. Larsson himself put that on the book?) so why is the BBFC certificate as the film began wrong? Yes I was actually sad enough to be looking out for it. I probably wouldn't have been though except FourSquare tried to autocorrect my english and I ended up with "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets's Nest" when I checked in at the cinema. Eugh. Anyway, picture time:

That's Carrie holding up her drink of Fanta that (as you can see) is about the size of her HEAD. LOL. The film itself was busier than we expected though, with each new film in the series we've noticed less and less people, but this time there were a whopping *10* people in the cinema (including us) :) I've read the books and found it pretty faithful (for the most part) although the ending scene was slightly different to the book (same "meaning", it just wasn't the same way).

Of course there was lots of sideplots missing, but considering it's already 2 and a half hours long... Like the previous films, it didn't feel like it and I was captivated for the entire duration. I'll certainly be buying it on Blu-ray as soon as they release a boxset! Apparently the US remake is in filming for a release next year so I don't know what I think about that (Daniel Craig as Blomkvist?!) and I certainly can't see it being as "gritty" as the films/books... but I'll watch it anyway. They have a lot to live up to though!
