Film trailer: 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' starring Daniel Craig
Wednesday 01 June 2011
The first official trailer for David Fincher's
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was posted online May 31, ahead of the planned June 2 release. The previously leaked red-band version was pulled from YouTube after at least 1.4 million views in less than three days, according to Movieline.
This version of the trailer features the same quick-cut footage, with less blood and nudity, and the series of shots offering an impressionistic glimpse of the film.
The soundtrack is Led Zepplin's "Immigrant Song" performed by Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Reznor scored the film music with Atticus Ross, with whom he also created the Oscar-winning score of The Social Network.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stars Daniel Craig as journalist Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara, from The Social Network, as Lisbeth Salander, the title role made famous by Swedish actress Noomi Rapace.
This American version, which follows the hit Swedish film, is directed by David Fincher (
The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and adapted from the first book of the best-selling Millennium thrillers by author Stieg Larsson.
The story follows a young female computer hacker who helps a journalist investigate the case of a woman who mysteriously disappeared, only to uncover more scandal and corruption than expected.
Stellan Skarsgård ( Thor, Melancholia) co-stars with Robin Wright ( State of Play, Beowulf), Christopher Plummer ( Priest, The Last Station) and Joley Richardson ( The Patriot).
With the tagline at the end of the trailer "The feel-bad movie of Christmas," The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo debuts in North America, Norway and Sweden on December 21, followed by the UK on the 26th, Germany on the 29th, and around the world in 2012.
