Synopsis:

Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) lost his wife forty years ago. Unable in all that time to uncover the facts in what he suspects is a murder, he brings journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) into the investigation. The reporter in turn enlists the help of an unconventional research assistant/computer hacker, Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara).

Of Special Note:

This movie is based on a book trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) by Stieg Larsson and Reg Keeland.

The series was previously made into three Swedish language films (Män som hatar kvinnor, Flickan som lekte med elden & Luftslottet som sprängdes), starring Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace. All were rated R by the MPAA when they played in the USA (with English subtitles). The series releases as a trio on Blu-ray on Dec 6, 2011.

In 2011Sony Pictures Entertainment began making their own versions of these scripts for North American audiences, and cast Daniel Craig as Journalist Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara as the tattoo-covered Lisbeth Salander. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is slated for release in December 2011and The Girl Who Played with Fire in 2012. There is no date yet for The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is rated R: for brutal violent content including rape and torture, strong sexuality, graphic nudity, and language.
