18 Awesome Red Band Trailers

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)

The Trailer: Very nearly a work of art in itself, combining blink-and-miss-‘em images with Karen O and Trent Reznor’s stirring, pulsing cover of ‘Immigrant Song’. Sadly it's not available online at the moment.

Sex Or Violence: Both, of course. There’s a very shadowy shot of Rooney Mara mounting Daniel Craig (wahey), plus a snippet of Mara showering (just to show off the tattoo, of course). Meanwhile, Craig seems to take an epic beating.

Does It Use All The Best Bits? Very almost, from what we know from the Swedish version of Stieg Larsson’s book. Though Fincher’s hinted he’s changed the ending to make it “better”, so there should still be a few surprises in store.
