New Details On 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'

Sony Picture's raised some eyebrows when they released the poster for the film "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" earlier this year. The very not safe for work poster shows a completely nude Rooney Mara, as the tattooed and pierced Lisbeth Salander, cradled by her co-star Daniel Craig, who plays Mikael Blomkvist.

As the release date creeps closer, more and more is being revealed about the dramatic film and its complicated characters.

Sony has just released some character images and bios for the cast (via TheDailyBlam), including Craig's Blomkvist and Mara's Salander. These simple few paragraphs describing the complex characters paired with the chilling photos adds that much more intensity to the dark drama.

The bestelling book has been adapted into the highly anticipated film and is set to be released in December of 2011. When Craig was asked about the intense thriller earlier this summer, he spoke to director David Fincher's loyalty to the racy content in the book. Fincher has apparently pushed the envelope in more ways than one. Craig said, "They've given him free rein. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, Are you f*cking serious?" It looks as though the poster won't be the only thing raising eyebrows this winter.
