Red Band Trailer for Girl with Dragon Tattoo: Feel Bad Movie of Christmas

Thompson on Hollywood

Columbia, with its red band trailer of David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (which has not been removed from YouTube, below), is selling edgy: “The feel bad movie of Christmas.” Meanwhile, the trailer cuts together tantalizing glimpses of everyone in the movie–especially heroic leading man Daniel Craig– but precious little of the girl we want to see and her dragon tattoo. Yes, there’s a skinny naked torso as Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara) takes off her shirt, and shots in the dark of a speeding cycle. At trailer’s end, we get “she’s coming,” which cops to the fact that Salander is the draw here.

But this trailer is a teaser, indeed. (Update: official green band version is now pasted below.)
