“Dragon Tattoo” TV spot boasts new footage – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Today seems to be a day of glorious reveals for films with Oscar dreams that’ve yet to fully pull back their curtains. This morning, we brought you an international trailer for Meryl Streep’s Margaret Thatcher biopic, “The Iron Lady,” which revealed far more footage than had previously been screened. And this afternoon, we turn our attention to David Fincher’s U.S. adaptation of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

A brand-new, one-minute TV spot for Sony’s upcoming thriller has made its way online (via TheMovieBox). It focuses primarily on Lisbeth Salander, the mysterious cyber-hacker (played here by Rooney Mara) who begrudgingly assists Daniel Craig’s journalist in solving a missing-persons case.

The clip continues to open doors for Fincher, who looks like he has nailed the dangerous moods of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium trilogy. I still question his motives. Don’t we want creative voices like Fincher working on wholly original material instead of remakes? Still, if “Dragon Tattoo” is going to be remade, Sony is wise to put it in the hands of a storytelling guru.

Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” opens on Dec. 21. I hope it starts screening, soon.
