Three Fincher-esque New 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Images

Director David Fincher has always given his films a very specific look, and even though the dank, grimy settings that are so associated with his work don't show up in a film like The Social Network, it seems Fincher will always have a place in his heart dark, unclean locales.  Sony has released three crystal clear new images from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, based on the international bestseller and all around literary phenomenon by the late Stieg Larsson, and one of them shows a vintage Fincher environment.

The second still has Daniel Craig striking a pose in a location that looks straight out of Alien 3, Fincher's first feature (which he disowned due to studio interference).  The first one has Craig and Christopher Plummer in a suitably dark spot, while the last features Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander looking like a living embodiment of the director's methodically assaultive style.

All three images are courtesy of Empire.

All three books in Larsson's trilogy have been adapted into films in the author's native Sweden, with Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth.  Rapace is now an American star-in-the-making, as she has a substantial role in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and plays the lead in Ridley Scott's Prometheus.  For the new cinematic take on the material, Fincher has promised a film that more thoroughly explores the themes of Larsson's novel rather than simply being a stylish, slick American product.  Hiring screenwriter Steve Zaillian was certainly a good move in attempting to do just that.

Joining Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, and Christopher Plummer are the likes of Robin Wright, Embeth Davidtz, Joely Richardson, and Goran Visnjic.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo spreads holiday cheer in theaters on December 21st.
