This weekend, we got a look at Rooney Mara (The Social Network) as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Now, the Daily Mail has landed the first look at Daniel Craig as investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Unlike Mara, who has undergone a bit of transformation to play the raven-haired, piercing-happy Salander, Craig looks a lot like Craig.
Still, if you’re excited for this flick, then hit the jump and check out the images. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo also stars Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Steven Berkoff, and David Dencik. It’s set to open on December 21, 2011.

Here’s the synopsis for Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo:
Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption. [Amazon]
