New ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ Trailer! This Is No Chick Flick…

A part of me feels like only girls are into this story. Don’t get me wrong I believe a truly great film will appeal to everyone but you very rarely hear men talking about The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It’s a shame really because the only people who should not see this movie are those that are too young. After recently seeing the Swedish version of the movie (first half was boring, second half was brilliant and made up for it) I can see why David Fincher was attracted to this story. It is very similar to Se7en and Zodiac. Then Daniel Craig was cast alongside a no-name as Lisbeth (I wholeheartedly believe that Lisbeth is one of the most interesting characters ever created). Craig is perfect for the role of Mikael, we all knew that, but Rooney Mara? Who is that? Well after seeing the new trailer that got released this morning, she IS Lisbeth.

The trailer sets up the story while Mara is captivating even here in the short clips we see of her in the trailer. This looks to be a great performance for a fascinating character. The trailer has the signature style of Fincher’s movies while having recognizable moments from the story. I am pleased that it is light on action as a lot what will probably be the best moments of the film aren’t spoiled here. Fans of the books, fans of Fincher, fans of Craig, fans of movies in general have something to really look forward to come December 21st. All the pieces are in place here for a classic. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer for yourself below.
