The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

"This girl isn't a wound - she's scar tissue." One of the many quotes from this piece. If you didn't get enough pink text on the Drive poster, we found more! A few high res scans of Empire magazine's article on David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo this month have hit the web and not only do they feature some awesome promo shots in general, but I love the bold pink coloring and overall style with the quotes. Great job, Empire! Not that we haven't seen enough cool imagery and 4-minute trailers already, but I just love seeing edgy photos like this for one of my most anticipated films this winter. See the full pages below!

Here are the scans found via Flickr (all the pages here), the rest can be found in the latest issue of Empire.

A journalist is aided in his search for a woman who'd been missing, or dead, for forty years, by a young female hacker, played in this one by Rooney Mara. Based on Stieg Larsson's Millennium series of novels.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker David Fincher, of great films like Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac, Benjamin Botton and The Social Network just last year. The script was adapted by Oscar winning screenwriter Steven Zaillian (Schindler's List, Hannibal, Gangs of New York, All the King's Men, American Gangster) directly from Larsson's novel. Sony is bringing Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to theaters on December 21st, right before Christmas. Feel bad this holiday.

       No - that specific cover is only to subscribers. I'm guessing the one on stands will have a different pic.

    So all they did in these pictures is sit around in a crappy apartment and tie each other up?

    The late Stieg Larsson's Trilogy of books that include "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" has sales of some 20 million to its credit worldwide. If this first instalment for the big screen hits the $100 million plus mark, then this Trilogy will go places.Daniel Craig has again shown quality and depth in securing a good actor role with much potential. This one may just have enough to land him the Oscar. Go for it! Best Wishes, DINESH R MAKWANA (DREAMWORDS AND INORBITS)
