Film trailer: David Fincher's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'
Monday 26 September 2011
The second trailer for the American remake of
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, an adaptation of the first novel in Stieg Larsson's best-selling Millennium trilogy, is a nearly four-minute preview released September 23.
This version from director David Fincher ( A Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), stars Daniel Craig ( Casino Royale), Rooney Mara ( The Social Network), Christopher Plummer ( The Last Station) and Stellan Skarsgard ( Thor). It follows the hit Swedish film adaptation released in 2009.
After the stylish montage of images in the teaser trailer previously released, this footage fills out the storyline. It reveals the backstory of journalist Mikael Blomkvist in his search for a wealthy young woman who has been missing for 40 years - or her murderer.
It also shows how he came to work with Lisbeth Salander, the young punk computer hacker played by Rooney Mara (and portrayed by Noomi Rapace in the Swedish film), and how they uncover crime and corruption.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo also features Robin Wright, Joely Richardson and Julian Sands.
The soundtrack and score is by Nine-Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who won the Oscar for Fincher's The Social Network.
The film hits theaters on December 21 in North America, Scandinavian countries and Singapore, then the UK on December 26, followed by Hong Kong, France, Germany and more markets in January, and Japan in February.
