For those not familiar with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, here’s a synopsis for Fincher’s adaptation:
The film is based on Stieg Larsson’s internationally best-selling novel centering on a murder mystery looking as far back as 40 years at the disappearance of Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families. All these years later, her aged uncle (Christopher Plummer) continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist (Craig), a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander (Mara). Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is due for release on December 21st, 2011.
