Yesterday we got our first look at Rooney Mara as the tough Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's take on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the first installment of the popular Millennium Trilogy. Though there were only a couple pictures, and she didn't seem to be in full costume, we got a pretty good idea of Mara's transformation into the role. Now we have even more pictures that show the young actress in full wardrobe with more tattoos, piercings and a full-on mohawk. These are considerably more impressive than yesterday's unveiling, and may change the minds of some naysayers who weren't pleased. Check out the new pics below!
Here are the new pictures courtesy of W magazine (click for slightly larger versions):
Seeing Mara with even more of the wardrobe and signature hair-style of Lisbeth Salander, these pictures much better illustrate the complete transformation that this cute actress is making for this big role. However, no matter how popular the book franchise, audiences who aren't familiar with the series probably won't be interested in a protagonist who looks like she just walked out of a Hot Topic. That's not to say I have anything against this gothic-punk kind of style, but plenty of average movie-goers will simply be turned off by her appearance. I have no doubt Fincher will deliver a quality adaptation, but it will definitely have an uphill battle to win over a large audience. What do you think?
