That old so-and-so David Fincher has done it again. Here’s our first in-depth look at the plot of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which is good if you are not one of the millions reading the Steig Larsson novel on their commute to work last year.
The story begins with Rooney Mara‘s Lisbeth investigating Daniel Craig‘s journalist Mikael for a group of employers who want to hire him to investigate a 40-year old cold case. Mikael in turn hires Lisbeth to aid him in his investigation. Without having read the story, I’d say that Christopher Plummer totally did it. Or Warlock. I’ve never trusted either of those guys.
All in all, it’s an exciting trailer that builds the mystery while introducing the characters without slowing down the action. Mara and Craig have an undeniable chemistry. I’m really looking forward to when this film gets adapted into a weekly procedural on ABC starring Ron Eldard and Joanna Garcia.
