Recently Columbia Pictures unveiled the full eight-minute theatrical trailer to the upcoming David Fincher film adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. For those worried about such a long trailer spoiling the film, take solace in knowing that Fincher’s detective thriller will run at over two and a half hours and doesn’t do much more than offer a brief summary of the events that set the story in motion.
Actress Rooney Mara has already won the National Board of Review Award for Breakthrough Performance as the film’s anti-social but genius hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander who aids investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) in his unraveling of a locked room murder mystery that involves the wealthy and politically influential high societies of Sweden.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is set to be released later this month on Dec. 21. The studio already has plans to adapt the the rest of Larsson’s Millennium series, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. Check out the trailer below.
