Christmas trees are going up, shopping lists are being made and travel plans are getting locked down for the forthcoming holiday season, but David Fincher will paint it black this Christmas with "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." And as we eagerly await the film, a brand new, one minute TV spot for the film offers yet another peek at the film with a healthy amount of new footage.
Rooney Mara in what looks like a career making performance leads the film as the damaged, brilliant Lisbeth Salander who pairs with Daniel Craig's Mikael Blomkvist to find a killer of women and unravel a decades old mystery. As the tattoo artist notes right at the very beginning of this clip, this is going to hurt, as the tale based on the best selling book by Stieg Larsson goes to some very, very dark places. So if you're truly sick and tired of Christmas carols by the end of December, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" will be quite the antidote.
The film will open on December 21st and one new image from the movie has snuck online as well, giving us yet another peek as Lisbeth. Both below. [ComingSoon/New York Times]
