Sony has released three new images from David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. According to Fincher, his take on the film explores “the cultural legacy of denial,” and “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.” I haven’t read the book but the Swedish adaptation didn’t seem like it had much to say about anything. It was simply a detective story with some colorful but meaningless brutality thrown in. I give Fincher the benefit of the doubt that he can glean a more rewarding film from Stieg Larsson’s novel.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opens December 21st.
