Watch the Invigorating New ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ Trailer

Considering the book series’ immense popularity, the populace unfamiliar with the story of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is rapidly diminishing. For those who never took an interest in the novels, however, I can almost guarantee: this trailer will hook you. Trust me; I’m one of you.

In this new adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon TattooDaniel Craig stars as Mikael Blomkvist, a formerly prominent magazine publisher who was ousted from public admiration after writing a libelous story. Beside Craig is Rooney Mara, playing the intriguing and disturbed hacker-genius Lisbeth Salander. The impressive cast also includes Christopher Plummer as Henrik Vanger, a CEO who hires (and possibly double-crosses) Blomkvist, Stellan Skarsgard as Martin Vanger, brother of a missing girl whose disappearance Blomkvist and Mara are investigating, and Robin Wright as Erika Berger, Blomkvist’s former partner and lover.

The story is heavy with intrigue, betrayal and psychological overtones. Although the trailer might be difficult to follow for people who aren’t totally familiar with the plotline, it does make you really want to know more. I guess that’s what the movie is for.

David Fincher’s (The Social Network) The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opens December 21. To see the other trailer (and an interesting, Muppetational parody of it), click here.

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.
