The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (official trailer and poster) by David Fincher
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the first film in Columbia Pictures' three-picture adaptation of Stieg Larsson's literary blockbuster The Millennium Trilogy. Directed by David Fincher and starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, the film is based on the first novel in the trilogy, which altogether have sold 50 million copies in 46 countries and become a worldwide phenomenon. The screenplay is by Steven Zaillian.
In the U.S. version, directed by David Fincher ("Seven," "Fight Club," " Zodiac"), Rooney Mara (who co-starred in Fincher's "The Social Network" last year) plays Lisbeth, the heroine of the title, while Craig plays the role of her partner/lover Mikael. In the popular 2009 Swedish version, they were played by Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist.
In the poster, Mara looks just about identical to Rapace's version of the character.
While the U.S. poster will likely be show a lot less skin, it's apparent that Hollywood hasn't toned down the sex and violence factor that helped make the suspenseful tale of vengeance, murder, sexual depravity and, ultimately, justice resonate so much with mainstream audiences.
