Not too long ago I showed you the first three stills that had been released for David Fincher’s adaptation of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Well behold, an additional three stills have been released via Empire.
We get a few more glimpses of Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist and one of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander. The pictures aren’t very revealing, but it seems as though they want to tease us just enough to keep interest high.
Personally I am excited, mainly because it is a David Fincher film. I haven’t gotten around to reading the book or tapping the Swedish film yet. However as the days roll on I feel the need to finally pick the book up and at least have that read before seeing this film. It will be coming at us on December 21st, with UK audiences getting it on the 26th.
One fateful day several years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses and no evidence. Nearly forty years later, investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) reluctantly accepts the unusual and seemingly unsolvable assignment of finding out what really happened to Harriet. Genius hacker, Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara) is drawn into the case and the two form a fragile alliance as they dig into the sinister past of the Vangers and find out just how far they're prepared to go to protect themselves and each other.
The film is Fincher and scribe Steven Zaillian’s vision as based on their interpretation of the novel by Stieg Larsson. Stellan Skarsgaard, Christopher Plummer, Robin Wright, Embeth Davidtz, Joely Richardson and Steven Berkoff will star along side Mara and Craig.
