Well, there's an awful lot riding on this one.
The second adaptation of a best-selling novel with a passionate following from the Oscar-nominated director of The Social Network with a script from the guy who wrote Schindler's List, was never going to have it easy.

Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara headline the mystery thriller that sadly doesn't involve any actual dragons but does genuinely involve a dragon tattoo. You can see an extended look at what to expect below.
It hits cinemas on December 26th.
