An extended, eight-minute trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has been released, offering more insight into director David Fincher's screen adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s blockbuster book than ever before. It is stark and stunning.

Scored by Trent Reznor and starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara (as the title character), the film opens December 21 nationally, but our friends at Movie Fanatic will be at its New York premiere a week early for an exclusive screening.

There's no dragon tattoo, but there is plenty of girl in the just-released poster for one of this year's most anticipated moves.

The first official ad for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has been released, with Daniel Craig's arm, along with the film's release date, strategically placed over Rooney Mara's body. This comes just a day after the trailer for this upcoming blockbuster hit the Internet.
