Following yesterday’s London premiere, the cast of ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ hit NYC’s famous Ziegfeld Theater this evening for the big premiere. I gotta admit, Rooney Mara is looking absolutely amazing on the red carpet, so major props to her team of stylists. The film, which hits theaters on December 21, is directed by David Fincher and stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara as the mysteriously cracked-out Lisbeth Salander.

Here’s more about the film:

December, 2002: Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), publisher and part-owner of the left-wing Swedish political magazine Millennium, loses a libel case involving allegations published about billionaire financier Hans-Erik Wennerström (Stefan Sauk). Blomkvist is sentenced to three months in prison, ordered to pay hefty damages, and to pay all court costs. Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) is a surveillance agent employed by Milton Security. Milton had been contracted to investigate Blomkvist. Salander delivers a comprehensive report on Blomkvist to a lawyer, Dirch Frode (Ingvar Hirdwall), on behalf of his only client, 82 year- old, Henrik Vanger (Sven-Bertil Taube). He is the former Vanger Corporation CEO. Blomkvist is invited to meet Vanger, who hires him to investigate the disappearance of his great-niece, Harriet. Harriet vanished on Children’s Day in 1966. Vanger not only believes that Harriet was murdered, but that a member of the Vanger family is responsible. He shows Blomkvist a small collection of framed, pressed flowers that Harriet had given him on his birthday since she was eight years old. In the attic is a collection of the framed flowers he has received at every birthday since her disappearance in 1966. He suspects that the sender could be Harriet’s murderer. [Source]

While I still don’t understand why they spent the cash to produce a Hollywood version of the perfectly fine original Swedish films, I think I’m still curious enough to check it out. Obviously the market for people who don’t like reading subtitles is huge b/c the original film cost around $13 million to produce and earned more than $100 million, while this new English-language version has a production budget of around $100 million. The film, which hits theaters on December 21, is directed by David Fincher and stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara as the mysteriously cracked-out Lisbeth Salander.
