Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Dec 20, If you’re like me, then you’re itching to see David Fincher’s remake of the Swedish film adaptation of the first installment of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo. Anticipating the hype for filmgoers and fans of the novel who will rush out and see one of the most depressing holiday releases ever, Sony-Columbia is going to open one day earlier than planned on December 20 at 7PM nationwide.

Jeff Blake, chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures explained the move in this announcement, “This is one of the busiest times of the year for moviegoing and we can’t wait to share this outstanding thriller with audiences all over the world. We feel that by opening for night-time shows on December 20th, fans of the book will be given the perfect opportunity to get a jump start on the release of an exceptional film.”

Typically, moving up the date of release of a film is a good sign and a sign of good confidence especially less than two weeks away. The early buzz so far has been positive, saying that the story aligns with Fincher’s body of work that includes Fight Club, Se7en, Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network. And for those who are skeptical about Rooney Mara’s portrayal of Lisbeth Salander as compared to Swedish actress Noomi Rapace’s performance, need not worry, audiences will be impressed.

Film Synopsis
In The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Academy Award-nominated director David Fincher (The Social Network) uncoils the world of Stieg Larsson’s global blockbuster thriller on the screen. Within the story’s labyrinth lie murder, corruption, family secrets and the inner demons of the two unexpected partners chasing the truth of a 40-year-old mystery. Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) is a financial reporter determined to restore his honor after being convicted of libel. Engaged by one of Sweden’s wealthiest industrialists, Henrik Vanger (Academy Award® nominee Christopher Plummer), to get to the bottom of the long-ago disappearance of his beloved niece, Harriet – murdered, Vanger believes, by a member of his large family – the journalist heads to a remote island on the frozen Swedish coast, unaware of what awaits him. At the same time, Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), an unusual but ingenious investigator with Milton Security, is hired to do a background check on Blomkvist, a job that ultimately leads to her joining Mikael in his investigation of who killed Harriet Vanger. Though Lisbeth shields herself from a world that has repeatedly betrayed her, her hacking skills and single-minded focus become invaluable. While Mikael goes face-to-face with the tight-lipped Vangers, Lisbeth plies the wired shadows. They begin to trace a chain of homicides from the past into the present, forging a fragile strand of trust even as they are pulled into the most savage currents of modern crime. The screenplay is by Steven Zaillian (Moneyball), based on the book by Stieg Larsson originally published by Norstedts. The producers are Scott Rudin, Ole S?ndberg, S?ren St?rmose, and Ce?n Chaffin. The film is presented by Columbia Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures.
