Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Evil shall with evil be expelled. This has been quite a week for early buzz on David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, starting with one of the most talked about 8-minute trailers of the year that everyone loved, that Muppets parody trailer, and plenty of updates on the viral Tumblr blog One of the other updates on that blog that I just have to share here is a new poster, created by graphic artist Neil Kellerhouse (who also created the first nude poster for this), that merges the faces of Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in a fantastically unique design. See it below!

The photo above was also from Mouth Taped Shut. Here's the teaser trailer, with the full trailer on the way.

Daniel Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

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.

    good work.

    I kind of like it from an artsy point of view, but is it a good poster? No. It tells me absolutely nothing about the movie, the plot, the actors, the director. It doesn't even tell us the movie title! And normal folks won't recognize Craig in there. I am all for making this things look like a piece of art, but a movie poster has a point, one that is not accomplished in this imo.

      It's not an official movie poster. Go to

      Its not an official poster but in all fairness it could pass for a "teaser" poster. 
  • Miguel Angel
    I love it to no end. Its already my wallpaper. If this movie lands Criterion Collection, this would make a fabulous cover. 
  • Film Wizard
    Doesnt anyone listen when I say that the trailer was also shown with Moneyball screenings this week as well?!?!?!?!?
    • Paquete_PT
      Firstshowing did a story on that a couple of days ago
    •  Yea, it may be on early screenings from Sony/Columbia... but we were told the full 8-minute trailer won't be released officially in theaters this weekend. We're waiting until we have solid info on its actual release, but yea, we heard.
      • Film Wizard
        Yeah I know that, but you kept mentioning that it was being shown specifically on Straw Dogs. Ever wonder what movie the twitter things that mouth taped shut was referring to. Maybe the events on this past Thursday weren't just for Straw Dogs. Maybe Sony was showing their other fall movies instead.

    Fincher had better be at the height of his powers with this one. The book was utter, utter shit.
  • This keeps looking better & better

    I just love it. It's Criterion-esque.
    • Ryderup
       Agree. But not a fan of the stilistic Criterion covers. Would love Criterion more if they went with original theatrical art.
    • raoul
      There's a reason. It's designed by Neil Kellerhouse who designs many, many Criterion covers.
  • Karlflynn9
    It's probably a teaser poster for james 23 which he is also meant to be in.
  • Myklspader
    Kind of... sucks.
