The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Excited the Web

by Iain Alexander

David Fincher’s movie adaptation of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘ went viral this past week with a leaked trailer that revealed an insight into his latest creation.

Starring James Bond actor Daniel Craig, and co-starring Rooney Mara, David Fincher takes his film making skills on a dark path in this twisted looking preview.

Fans of Fincher will remember all to well the recent glory of ‘The Social Network‘ as it was one of the favorites at this year’s Oscars. ‘The Social Network‘ eventually won 3 out of its 8 nominations including ‘Best Adapted Screenplay‘.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is based on the book by the late Swedish Crime novelist Stieg Larsson, one of several in his ‘Millennium Series’.

Not much has been revealed about the film itself but since the first trailer went online, and was ‘allegedly’ leaked after being recorded in a movie theater, there has been much debate. Will David Fincher provide a dark, thrilling, ‘Fight Club’ inspired tale of tragedy and genius, or should we expect something never before seen?

‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ will be released at the end of 2011
