Thank you, David Fincher, for giving us a masterclass in how to create an exceptional teaser trailer for a movie as we can see with the one for his new version of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.

A new version of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO is on its way to a cinema near you this December. As a kind of alternative Christmas present, this gorgeously dark thriller from the novel by Swedish author Stieg Larsson is the perfect material for director David Fincher. I’m sure as my blog continues, you’ll be reading a lot more about Mr Fincher who, in my opinion, is one of the finest film directors around today.

As the first part of Larsson’s ‘Millennium trilogy’, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO introduces us to the now famous characters of computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist, who have already been brilliantly played in the original 2009 Swedish movie by Noomi Rapace and Michael Nvqvist. In Fincher’s version, they are played by Rooney Mara – who made a huge splash in Fincher’s The Social Network as Mark Zuckerberg’s girlfriend Erica Albright – and in a departure from a certain James Bond, Daniel Craig.

So here’s the first look at Fincher’s stunning new interpretation and let’s say hello to Ms Salander once more.

Now take notes because this is how to make a movie teaser trailer…
