The pace and quick cuts in 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' trailer promises enough thrill
The fast-paced extended new trailer of David Fincher's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', promises enough action this Christmas and may well be as good as Niels Arden Oplev's earlier Swedish-language release. There is enough build-up in the promo as journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and hacker Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara) team up to solve a decades-old murder on a remote Swedish island.
Those who have read Stieg Larsson's original novel will be worried that Fincher might have taken certain liberties (The explicit scene where Lisbeth is torturing her guardian is not there) which may weaken the subplot showing Lisabeth's personal troubles. But then, if Fincher's film is to be a copy of Oplev's film, why do we need to see it?
For those who are not familiar with the story of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo':
Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired by rich businessman Henrik Vanger to investigate the disappearance of Vanger's great-niece Harriet, who vanished 40 years ago. Henrik suspects that someone in his family murdered and disposed her body.
As soon as he starts his investigation, Mikael realizes that Harriet's disappearance is linked to series of gruesome murders which started before her disappearance. He meets a young computer hacker, Lisbeth Salander who has a history of violence. Together they investigate into the violent past of the secretive Vanger family.
