Well, this is pretty much all that's left. Every Oscar hopeful has screened in some capacity already -- even Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" has begun randomly screening in a few scattered locations -- leaving David Fincher's grim, ambitious, black eyeliner'd "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" the remaining mystery. Simply a slick little thriller or something that could change the awards season game late in the season? It's anybody's guess right now. If Fincher can turn a movie about the founding of Facebook into a critically acclaimed, gripping drama, anything is possible.
Anyhow, another poster has arrived, this time for the folks down under and it's a riff on the U.S. version that hit not too long ago. Lisbeth and Mikael and that's all you need to know. Just to recap, in case one of you've left the planet in the last few months, the film finds Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara toplining the movie as the oddly matched duo who investigate the mystery behind a crime committed four decades ago. Dour, violent and not particularly the happiest of stories, this one is also based on one of the biggest best sellers in recent memory and with a supporting cast includes Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgard, Robin Wright, Steven Berkoff, Yorick Von Wageningen, Goran Visnjic, Geraldine James and Joely Richardson, the director is certainly swinging for the fences.
"The Girl With Dragon Tattoo" hits on December 21st. Poster below. [via JoBlo]
