    Steve Zaillian Talks 'Dragon Tattoo,' 'Moneyball' & The Difficulties Of Getting Adult Dramas Made In Hollywood

    Last week, David Fincher's "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" opened, and with it returns something that's been missing from the big cineplexes for a while: a big, expensive movie that is made for adults. It doesn't dumb anything down and it wears its R-rating like a badge of pride ...
