Brand New 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' Poster is the Best Yet

Columbia Pictures doesn't need a naked Rooney Mara to sell David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Of course, it doesn't hurt for drumming up some Internet attention, but a poster like this new one that just debuted on Mouth Taped Shut is one I want to hang on my wall right now.

Featuring Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, Rooney Mara as the titular "Girl" and one of the pressed flowers Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) has been receiving throughout the years, taunting him over the disappearance of his granddaughter Harriet 40 years ago.

I have included this latest piece of art at the bottom of this post, but just below is a thumbnail gallery of all four pieces of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo art to be released so far. Just click on any one of the thumbnails to get started. The film is set to hit theaters on December 21.

Based on Stieg Larsson's internationally best-selling novel, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a murder mystery looking as far back as 40 years at the disappearance of Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

    That is a seriously awesome poster. I guess with the movie opening in less than two months they had to release a poster theatres will actually use. The Regal theatre here did have the topless poster up for about a week back in the summer; of course it quickly disappeared.

    I just love the way Sony has been marketing this. They're obviously going all out trying to get people's attention as this is going to be a very tough film to sell, particularly at Christmastime. I'm still not confident in its box-office potential, but hopefully Fincher has delivered a quality film.

    Nice! I really love the image and the concept - great execution here. Although that font just seems out of place to me... It's such a classy image with the greyscale scheme and all - font just doesn't fit for me... But whatever. This film is going to rule. Can't wait.

    That's a nifty poster..................but the trailers aren't convincing me of anything about the film yet.

  • Mason Williamson

    That's a really excellent poster. Love the tagline as well.

    Very nice! I wonder what the flowers' placement means.

    I like the font in this, other than that, it doesn't really wow me as much as Kellerhouse's other works.

    My excitement is building. Somehow, I've been able to tear myself away from watching all the trailers and featurettes about this film. I've refused to watch the original films and I'm not going to read the books - no spoilers for me, thank you (however, if the first film is as spectacular as I think it's going to be, I have to read the second and third books). I CAN'T WAIT.

    Thems the facts
