New Images Of Fincher's Dragon Tattoo

Daniel Craig & Rooney Mara investigate

You've read the book, you've seen the Swedish movie, but if you have a lick of sense you're still excited to see David Fincher's take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, out on December 26 this year. Starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, with support from Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer, Robin Wright, Joely Richardson and Goran Visnjic, it promises all the hard edge you'd expect of this particular literary adaptation and none of the subtitles. And here are exclusive new stills from the film, as featured in the new issue of Empire.

The film, which Fincher told us concerns "the cultural legacy of denial", is not going to be big on cuddliness. "We want to find a place where you can talk about something and be really, really hard-hitting - like the material it's based on - and yet we also want to make it a moviegoing experience."
