Experience the Many Sides of Rooney Mara in ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ Clip

Dragon TattooOne minute in the life of Lisbeth Salander would feel like a week for the many of us who dine on the mundane. The below minute-long clip from the upcoming David Fincher film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo depicts the captivating hacker-extraordinaire Salander (Rooney Mara) in many a light. We see her as the victim to the abuse of sick, power-hungry men. We see her as she has collected herself after suffering said abuse: a survivor, a warrior, a superhero (or is she?).

The below clip opens in, of all places, a tattoo parlor, wherein Salander is undergoing the painful process of inking. We also see her martial aptitude, her photographic memory, her position as a “psychological outlier”…yes, for those of you out there yearning to see all the sides of Salander, the below clip does a pretty good job to satisfy.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opens Dec. 21. Also starring are Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgard.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
