The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo


Having spent his last three films fighting off Nazis, battling aliens and being James Bond, Daniel Craig’s latest film, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, finds him in a far more sedate profession: magazine journalism (and we should know).

At least, that’s how it’s supposed to be. Being Daniel Craig, his magazine journalism is a little different, as our exclusive picture of him fleeing fellow reporters shows. In this English-language adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s novel, the first of his posthumous and phenomenally successful Millennium series directed by David Fincher, Craig plays Mikael Blomqvist, a man hired by a wealthy businessman to investigate his niece’s disappearance 40 years earlier.

And that brings Blomqvist into contact with Lisbeth Salander, an antisocial computer hacker played by Rooney Mara (inset), last seen as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s fictional ex-girlfriend in Fincher’s The Social Network. Salander has been hired by the same businessman to investigate Blomqvist, but they join forces when they realise that they may have uncovered a serial killer.

We’ve seen several scenes from the film and it has all the stark, dark atmosphere you’d expect from Fincher. The story includes some notoriously disturbing moments and there has been much discussion as to how he would handle them. According to the man himself, he’s holding nothing back.

The Seven director recently told us: “I don’t think, from a content standpoint, that we shouldn’t be making movies from books that are challenging, just because it might be harrowing for the audience.” We’ll wager that Daniel Craig — and discerning viewers — agree.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is at cinemas nationwide from 26 December
