Rooney Mara could not have been a better choice to take the lead in David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Whether it’s witnessed through the latest Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailer or the two new publicity shots below, Mara sizzles as Lisbeth.
Noomi Rapace established the bar pretty high in the Swedish version of Stieg Larsson’s wildly successful book series. And it appears that Mara has taken the mantle and run with it.
Several The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stills have been released, but it is these publicity shots released by Columbia Pictures that show how much Mara has lost herself in the role. The girl from The Social Network has shed that skin and gone to a completely dark place coupled with fierceness.
