The days are getting shorter and that means one thing: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's release date of December 21 is getting closer! Lionsgate has given us an early Thanksgiving treat by releasing a single new photo of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth and it's one you will just want to stare at to take in the dark and riveting characterization by an amazing actress, even seen through one frame.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is directed by David Fincher and scored by Trent Reznor, a combo that resulted in an Oscar for Reznor for The Social Network. Judging from early The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailers, this is another golden combo.
Mara was somewhat of an unusual choice to play Lisbeth, but as seen in trailers and photos, such as the one above, the actress has nailed the characterization and then some.
