A bootleg version (although a fairly good one) of the first red band trailer for David Fincher’s upcoming English-language remake of Steigg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the first installment in the Millennium Trilogy.

The movie follows Daniel Craig as investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist, who along with computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, goes out to solve a 40-year-old murder, which has been shrouded in mystery ever since one Harriet Vanger went missing without a trace. The driven minded journalist and the equally dark and mysterious Salander begin to form a friendship as they delve deeper into the case. Check out the trailer below:

It certainly looks like Fincher’s territory, it’s just whether it’s going to be too similar to the original to then practically make it a pointless movie. The original movie itself was a well constructed and dark thriller, exactly the type of film Fincher made back in the 90’s with the likes of Seven and Fight Club. I’m sure he’ll handle this material in his own unique way.

We shall see when the movie hits cinemas on December 21st.
