Fans of Stieg Larsson’s novel series and the original Swedish theatrical trilogy are afforded another look at The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as Sony Pictures debuts a new one sheet for their American remake, I mean, their “American translation” of the film.
Though the one sheet (below) appears pretty straight forward, it could be argued that the one sheet reveals quite a bit if one looks closer. Without giving anything away for those unfamiliar with the story, one could argue that the one sheet highlights how Mikael (Daniel Craig) and Lisbeth’s (Rooney Mara) lives unexpectedly become entangled with one another as join forces in the investigation of a young woman’s disappearance….Also, the crytic phrase, one could argue (on much deeper level), touches on the nature of the title character…. Anyways, the official synopsis (along with the one sheet) can again be seen below….
