Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

"She's different." A new 30 second TV spot has recently hit the web (via The Daily Blam) for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, starring Daniel Craig and featuring a score by Trent Reznor. I know TV spots are usually great sellers, but this one is quite awesome, especially because we finally get to see that over-the-head shot of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander that I saw in the 8-minutes of footage, but wasn't in the 4-minute trailer released online. One of my favorite shots already and I still have yet to see the entire film! Not sure how anyone can't be excited for this after watching a badass TV spot like this. Check it out!

Watch the new 30 sec. TV spot for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo via YouTube:

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.

Horrible... This girl is nothing compared to Lizbeth in the Swede Version..... smh -____-

Ohh come on, you haven't even seen this yet! Give it/her a chance first, I think it will be awesome, Fincher knows how to cast perfectly.

Alex Billington on Oct 27, 2011


And what exactly are you basing that on.  You know, besides your need to defend the original film at all cost as if admitting that this remake looks pretty good will tarnish that film forever.

Rooney channels Lisbeth flawlessly, does for her what Heath did for the Joker. On top of that, she has range, can pull off the BADASS along with expressing the HURT AND VULNERABILITY the character holds inside. Unlike that robot Noomi, who walked around with an unchanging scowl the whole movie. Even people from Sweden are in favor of Fincher's adapatation.

TinkerToymaker on Oct 28, 2011


The swedish version sucks.  Sorry Antonio.  Its Fincher dawg....trust in the Finch.  Besides when you read the book, if you have, Rooney Mara fits the mental perception of Lisbeth Salander way better then Noomi Reapace, even if she did do a good job in an otherwise boring movie. 

Nick Green on Oct 28, 2011


Seeing a 30 second clip (in which less than 10 seconds shows Rooney Mara) is hardly enough time to determine whether she fits the metal perception of Lisbeth Salander. I think you just have a crush on Finch. 

Vilesmile100 on Oct 28, 2011


I do have a man crush on Finch movies and Reznor music, is that wrong?...fight club dude.  When Salanders image comes to mind while reading, Rooney Mara's "look" is way more convincing to my psyche.  Noomi Reapace's look just didn't do it for me.  And this isnt the first time i have glimpsed ms. Mara as Salander.  Look at the two, read the book, and play pretend in your head, and tell me which one do you think physically fits the part.  The acting quality on Maras part is what is yet to be determined my friend not her look. 

Nick Green on Oct 28, 2011


Say what you will, my friend, but the Swedish version most certainly did NOT suck. Nor was it boring. Niels Arden Oplev did a beautiful job bringing the first book to the screen. He's also in part responsible for Rapace's astonishing performance. It's so clear the great David Fincher is a fan of Oplev's vision, because so many of the scenes in his film are identical in tone and style. Even though I originally thought it was too soon for a U.S. remake, from what I can tell from the trailers and footage we've all seen, it looks like Fincher knocks it out of the park. Again. And I'm very excited to see this.

The fact I have to watch a commercial before I can watch a commercial of this film is ridiculous. Pass. 

Rp1n on Oct 27, 2011


I hate commercials too, but why should the people who run this site go penny-less? This site gives me up to date info on films so I don't have to spend time searching for each new thing. If I have to watch a commercial before a cool sneak peak that's fine with me. They have to make money some how...

ShaunG on Oct 27, 2011


yeah because youtube which is owned by google  is pennyless. anyway, good trailer! 

WoodSon on Oct 27, 2011


I'm trying to find an embeddable YouTube version but their wasn't one yet... Once I find one I'll update it. I know, that frickin' sucks, I try to avoid these kind of videos as often as possible! Sorry man!

Alex Billington on Oct 27, 2011


Here's an embed video YT. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3CUNmxWOFE

Crockett on Oct 28, 2011


Yep, I found a working HD version, it's fixed in YouTube above - no ad playing before it, thankfully!!

Alex Billington on Oct 28, 2011


Finally we get to see that shot, I've been eager to see it ever since I've read the descriptions for the 8-minute trailer.

Crockett on Oct 27, 2011


Like the writer aptly added to this article "Feel bad this holiday".  I'm already sick that that there is a slick over-budgeted remake of Oplev's brilliant version - adding to the growing list of things that are wrong with America. We suck!

Lilly on Oct 28, 2011


What you call slick, I call well produced.  What you call over budgeted, I call well financed.  Who wants to pay for a home-made version of a movie?  America is the greatest country in the history of the world  Suck.-- You

Kevin556 on Oct 28, 2011


for me only noomi as lisbeth, she's the only one can give justice on that role...but i still going to watch the english version coz of daniel craig...

vangie aves on Oct 28, 2011


Did you guys read the books? And on top of that have you seriously watched the Swedish version? It was pretty mediocre. They butchered the storyline, destroyed several characters, and it was misdirected and poorly acted. I'm super excited for Fincher's version, considering that he has been shown to only make great movies, and that from the trailer alone I see has chosen to include several scenes from the book that the Swedish version omitted. Also the cast is pretty kick ass. Just get ready to eat your words you haters!

BAH! on Oct 28, 2011


Wow, what a moronic response. Go back to the IMDB boards.

AMS2012 on Oct 30, 2011


Also, "BAH!", I just love how you deduced that Fincher handled the books and characters better than the Swedish director based on the U.S. trailer. How about waiting to watch the final product before making such ridiculous comments. And for the record (AGAIN), I'm looking forward to Fincher's film. I'm not one of the "haters".  But to call the Swedish version "mediocre" is ludicrous. It was well received by critics and audiences. And the longer versions are coming out in November.

FilmFan on Oct 30, 2011


OK, sold. I will definitely be seeing this.

Glossgreen on Oct 28, 2011


Alex - I hope you can answer this for me.  In the very first trailer for this new version of Dragon Tattoo, in the background they played an old rock song that I'm familiar with but can't name.  Hard to explain - like somebody's voice screeching - ah ah ah     AH .  Do you know what I'm talking about.  A friend told me that because of copyrights, they had to take that out of the trailers.  Can you help me?  It's driving me crazy.  Also - I was not enthusiastic about a remake - thought the original was fantastic all the way around - but the the more I see these trailers, the more excited I am about seeing the English version.  Thanks for any help you can offer on that song.

Rlmccoy99 on Oct 29, 2011


I'm pretty sure you're referring to the "Immigrant Song" from Zeppelin? The version used in the first trailer is Trent Reznor & Karen O's cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song". I don't think it's release anywhere officially yet, but it'll probably be on the soundtrack album when this gets released. That's as much as I know! Hope that helps? And yes, this is looking so damn good, you can always trust Fincher to deliver!

Alex Billington on Oct 29, 2011


Alex - I googled it and that was exactly it - the Immigrant Song.  Thank you so much.  It's been driving me up the wall since I first heard it in the first trailer.  thank you for responding so promptly.
