‘Hannibal’ Mashup Shows ‘Red Dragon’ Scene in Three Different Ways


A new feature titled “Recovering The Mindset,” edited by Matthew Morettini, looks at the confrontation between Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter, as portrayed in Michael Mann’s 1986 Manhunter between William Peterson and Brian Cox, Brett Ratner’s 2002 Red Dragon between Edward Norton and Anthony Hopkins, and in Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal between Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen.

Finally, there’s a nice black-and-white shot that includes the director, [Hugh] Dancy, and a look at Lecter himself, played by Mads Mikkelsen (From left: Slade, Dancy, Mikkelsen). Lecter has been played by Brian Cox in Manhunter; Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon and the Hannibal film; and Gaspard Ulliel in Hannibal Rising, although we’d all prefer to forget that last one exists.
