Continuing a steady stream of brilliant promotional material for David Fincher’s upcoming mystery crime thriller ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.’ These new scans have found their way online from the latest issue of Empire Magazine, providing us with a new look at Rooney Mara as the troubled but brilliant computer hacker and investigator Lisbeth Salander, and Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, investigative journalist and publisher of the ‘Millenium’ magazine.

Based on Stieg Larsson’s hugely successful ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ novel, the first book in  Larsson’s ‘Millenium trilogy, the film also stars Robin Wright, Stellan Skarsgård, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Steven Berkoff, David Dencik, Yorick van Wageningen, Bengt C.W. Carlsson, Mathilda von Essen and Goran Visnjic.

Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy has altogether sold over 50 million copies in 46 countries. The  screenplay for Fincher’s adaptation of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ is by Steven Zaillian, while Trent Reznor is on score duty, making this the second feature collaboration between Reznor and  Fincher after ‘The Social Network’ – which earned Reznor an Academy Award. In the Swedish-produced 2009 film based on the novel, Lisbeth Salander was played by Noomi Rapace, while Mikael Blomkvist was played by Michael Nyqvist. That adaptation was met with widespread critical acclaim and went on to gross $104,285,103. ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ is to be released in cinemas December 21st.  Check out the images and synopsis for the film below.
