The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Trailer

She's Coming. Over the weekend, an international red band teaser trailer for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, made quite a commotion when it hit the web in bootlegged form, playing for days before being taken down. I still think it's one of the best trailers we'll see this year and I've been watching it over and over. We've been waiting for the official green band trailer and one has finally showed up, courtesy of Movie-List, though not in high def (stay tuned). In addition, a rad international poster was found via SlashFilm. You can check out the trailer and poster below!

This trailer is mostly the same and includes Karen O. & Trent Reznor's redo of Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song."

Watch the green band trailer for David Fincher's 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.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Poster

This poster was first debuted on SlashFilm, but is a clean and censored version of an international poster. The other version, which you can see on this blog, doesn't have a bar covering up Mara. Such dark imagery.

So what was the point of the red band trailer? ... still looks swell, though.

Boobs and the text "She's coming".

Captivating trailer, looks good and the actors look very much like the Swedish ones. Got to see

Magnus Månsson on Jun 1, 2011


I am very excited to see this film!

DAVIDPD on Jun 1, 2011


thats kinda a nsfw poster....

Anonymous on Jun 1, 2011


Kinda! It's got a little yellow censor bar. Just don't... show your boss. ūüėČ

Alex Billington on Jun 1, 2011


I'm very drawn to the film. I'm interested in seeing what this adaptation of the novel is like. Not a fan of the teaser, but it does give a lot of glimpses into Fincher's style, which I like.

how hard can it be to release a HD trailer?

Qweqwu on Jun 1, 2011


I know... Maybe it'll be out soon...

Alex Billington on Jun 1, 2011


I kinda like the way Mara looks...I'm happy to see an American version...Rapace and Mara too very different women portraying Lisbeth Salander...genius I tell you! Genius! I'll see it for sure.

I'm hoping for the same as well, Alex.  Hopefully it will be similar to LET THE RIGHT ONE IN/LET ME IN--both films were excellent and can stand side-by-side.

I am just very disappointed with Fincher, I am a huge fan and for him to choose to do a remake is just plain lame. The original film was a great film, it is such a slap in the face on the original director" Niels Arden ", I mean the movie just came out in 2009, what a waste of energy and resources, he could have done something thats new and fresh.

Mynameismine on Jun 1, 2011


 Its not a remake...rather a re-adaptation...for American audiences. The fact is not many Americans want to read subtitles which is sad, seeing as reading subtitles isn't that hard to Fincher wants to do his own version of The Millennium Series. The Original is still very much you don't have to watch Fincher's versions.

Xerxexx on Jun 1, 2011


I get it, it's a re adaptation but it remains a "RE" it is essentially the same story, I mean even from the preview I see it has a lot of the same shots. I feel Fincher is above this and can work on something else, he has had a record on working on great new original projects but  a remake.  I see your other point, most American audiences will more than likely never see this film because is a foreign film, so now you sacrifice good talent to get more people to watch a movie? on the other hand, I like to see good writers get exposure, so for the writer I see this as being a plus. @ SkaOreo: As far as an overhyped movie goes, thats generally what happens with foreign films, they tend to get over hyped, the movie is great, there really isn't anything to complain about. but by all means does not grant it to be an excuse to disrespect the hard work the director put into the project. The movie is more than great as is.

Mynameismine on Jun 1, 2011


I see it as Fincher being a fan of the series, and him being a successful director will allow him to bring the story to a whole new audience. Of course fans of the original movies will be disappointed and I get why, but I think some fans are excited...excited because they get two versions.

Xerxexx on Jun 1, 2011


I agree with you about Fincher.  It would be nice to see him follow up The Social Network with some other unconventional movie subject matter.  I mean, who knew a movie about Facebook could grab and hold onto your attention so well?  Albeit not all of what made that a catchy movie was Fincher's doing, but his style had a lot to do with it.  As I look forward to the next Danny Boyle project or Coen Bros. project, likewise I look forward to the next Fincher project.  There are some directors who just can't seem to miss, who choose their projects carefully and tackle a range of subjects throughout their career, and he's one of them.  I'm sure this new adaptation won't be a disappointment.  It's just what you said; it's so soon after it's already been done.  Although, one could argue that if you're going to do it, go ahead and get it over with so the audience doesn't go cold on the subject.

JL on Jun 1, 2011


If he does Cleopatra, that in itself would be unconventional (as it's been rumored). You know what I wish he'd do: A film about Jim Henson. I'd like to see how Fincher would tackle that subject. Anyway...I'm sure this film will be entertaining enough.

Quanah on Jun 2, 2011


Well, if it means making an overhyped film actually great, then I'm all for Fincher slapping the shit out of Arden.

SkaOreo on Jun 1, 2011


The Swedish films were terrible.  The totally failed to capture the dynamic relationship between the characters.  I'm hoping these films do a better job of portraying the complexities of the characters and telling all the little background stories  from the book that the Swedish films just missed...

guest on Jul 18, 2011


Oh so gritty. Kinda overdoing it in my opinion. Feel bad movie of christmas? Give me a break.

M.K. Nielsen on Jun 1, 2011


Oh no... it's oh so gritty for your soft heart isn't it.... give me a break.

Phontsolo on Jun 1, 2011


Wow. Rooney looks sexy as HELL in that poster. Damn!

Jim on Jun 1, 2011


Are some of the actors the same as in the sweedish version because I kinda recognise a few of the faces?

Rachet200 on Jun 1, 2011


I think I saw Stellan Skarsgard, who is Sweden born and looks a lot like a lot of the people in the Swedish versions.

JL on Jun 1, 2011


she reminds me of this guy for some reason

Chris A. on Jun 1, 2011


XD  What did they do, shave her eyebrows off or something?  By the way, Peter Weller rocks.

JL on Jun 1, 2011


That's what I thought but it seems like they are super thin....Nothing tops the original RoboCop. Speaking of which, I wonder what's the status on the reboot/remake?

Chris A. on Jun 2, 2011


I can't wait to see this! I saw the original and I absolutely loved it. When I found that Fincher, my favorite director was behind the american adaptation I wet my pants...

Drived on Jun 1, 2011


Feels weird to make her so sexual on the poster... when you think about what the story's all about...

Ryderup on Jun 1, 2011


indeed, the Larsson's inspiration isn't sunshine and butterfly's...mostly guilt. Guilt for not stopping what those people did to that 15 year old girl...Lisbeth. 

Xerxexx on Jun 1, 2011


did they change the locale so that it takes place in America?

Hallospaceboy on Jun 1, 2011


Nope, looks like Sweden.

Lars on Jun 1, 2011


welcome,Mr Fincher! please forget forever zodiac,benjamin and fucking social net work goddamn movies...

Comodo on Jun 1, 2011


What? Zodiac, Benjamin Button and Social Network are pretty good films.

Xerxexx on Jun 2, 2011


Right, all three were better than most of the crap that gets pumped out every year.

JL on Jun 2, 2011



Xerxexx on Jun 2, 2011



Mynameismine on Jun 2, 2011


Benjamin Button disturbed me, but it was an excellent film heavy with theme and message. The scene at the end with the baby haunted me for nights. Zodiac was brilliant. I never understood why people didn't like that film. Downey Jr.'s performance was great as always, and Fincher approached the subject with a story about the relationship between reporter, cop, and code cracker unlike any previous telling. And Social Network? That film was the quintessential story of the youth movement of the 21st century. Although I'm not in love with all of David Fincher's films, I will say I don't feel he's ever done a film that's complete, utter shit. Can you say that about Spielberg? I mean, C'mon. Hook? Anyway...

Quanah on Jun 2, 2011


The best part of Button was after the ship he was serving on was sunk and the captain died we see a Humming bird fly in of Benjamin and I heard my father go "Hm." in approval, that was a great scene. 

Xerxexx on Jun 2, 2011


Yes. It was. ūüôā

Amazing movie after 3 tragic movies...

Wonder why they couldn't use the phrase "She's Coming" at the end of the trailer. Guess they figured some prudes would think it had an alternate meaning LOL.

Notalent on Jun 2, 2011


You have to see it in a theater to really understand how badass of a trailer this is. Also Apple has just released the trailer in 1080p on their site. I recommend for everyone to go and check it out!

Cruzer on Jun 2, 2011


I can¬īt understand how easy do you all accept censorship in your country. And even now, when we can see all these people battling in north Africa for freedom. Even¬†some of you (or all) think that's an innapropiate poster to be seen by your boss. In which century do you live? Is it really such a puritan culture? But again, accepting censorship and be treated as babies is really badass? Still remembering all the Janet Jackson's nipples affair.

Anonymous on Jun 2, 2011


I'm not sure how anyone can think this is a good trailer.  I've seen the original film but anyone who hasn't probably would be lost in this trailer.  Sure it doesn't give the whole movie away like a lot of trailers do these days but it also doesn't give you anything about the movie.  In fact if you think this trailer is good you could probably sit down with windows movie maker and make an "outstanding" trailer for Megapiranha using the same editing techniques used here..The only thing good about it is Trent Reznor. 

Bowtome on Jun 2, 2011


I agree with you. I'm profoundly interested in understanding the differences in the novel adaptations. But, in this trailer it's not evident. However, whether I like the trailer or not isn't really the point for me any longer. It's more about enjoying Fincher's artwork.

Quanah on Jun 3, 2011


Man, I love Fincher. He can do any movie. I trust him. :]

Mr. Foe on Jun 2, 2011

Daniel Craig has PedoEyes

Chris A. on Jun 2, 2011


It's a shot for shot remake of the original, and David Fincher is waay overrated. He has the ability to recognize a good story, but so does anyone else who comes across a good story.   Watch the original, it's a slap in the face of the makers of the original to have a remake so soon. Enough hollywood crap, I like Daniel Craig but still, how opportunistic is this remake....

Original on Jun 3, 2011


Couldn't agree more...Sorry Maerica - I'm just wondering if the only reason the 'remake' is coming is because the majority of you can't read and watch at the same time. Love Daniel Craig but, if you have any resemblance of cerebral matter - avoid this and watch the original trilogy. 

whyohwhyohwhy? on Jun 6, 2011


Ironically I've lost some of my own brain tissue - should read 'America'! Sigh...

whyohwhyohwhy? on Jun 6, 2011


Xerxexx i don't know where you come off thinking like you know something. So please just sit back and let people who know what they are talking about take over. I would have to say you talk like a 21 year old who still lives with their mom so please stop talking.
