The official trailer for 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'

June 2, 2011 |  7:54 am

Director David Fincher's adaptation of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is, the trailer promises, going to be the feel-bad movie of Christmas.

The film stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig. The music? That's Karen O covering Led Zeppelin with the help of Trent Reznor.

Although the trailer is little more than quick cuts and dark, stylish shots, you don't need to learn the plot -- you already know what the movie's about. Stieg Larsson's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is a longstanding L.A. Times bestseller. So are its sequels, "The Girl Who Played With Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest."
