The official website for David Fincher’s remake of Niels Arden Oplev’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo has just recently some character images and biographies. The film is based on the novel by Stieg Larsson is the first part of a trilogy of book known as The Millenium Trilogy, but then you knew that already. Same as you probably already know most of the characters backgrounds because hopefully, like me, you have either read the books and seen the original films, or both! So, these images serve little purpose other than giving us a glimpse of how the characters will look, so for that reason this is well worth posting. They all look a right moody bunch, you can view the pictures after a brief synopsis on the film starring Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara and Stellan Skarsgard. The film is due in UK cinemas Boxing Day.
Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomqvist is hired by Henrik Vanger to investigate the disappearance of Vanger’s great-niece Harriet. Henrik suspects that someone in his family, the powerful Vanger clan, murdered Harriet over forty years ago.
Starting his investigation, Mikael realizes that Harriet’s disappearance is not a single event, but rather linked to series of gruesome murders in the past. He now crosses paths with Lisbeth Salander, a young computer hacker, an asocial punk and most importantly, a young woman driven by her vindictiveness.
Together they form an unlikely couple as they dive deeper into the violent past of the secretive Vanger family.
