Daniel Craig: New 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Stills with Rooney Mara!

Daniel Craig: New 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Stills with Rooney Mara!

Check out Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in these new stills from the The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, out December 21. Here’s what director David Fincher had to share with USA Today:

On casting Rooney Mara: “I wasn’t looking for someone who kicks ass. I was looking for someone who could project the kind of mystery of someone who is that damaged.”

On casting Daniel Craig: “He reminds me of Brad [Pitt] or Mark Ruffalo. They’re the kind of actors who will do eight or nine takes until the muscle memory kicks in. They make themselves totally available.”

On Rooney and Daniel’s chemistry: “You know how you get up in the morning to make your coffee and you’ll see your cats, kind of curled and natural? That was them. They were amazing colleagues.”

On casting Robin Wright as Erika Berger: “Actually, she wasn’t first on our list because we didn’t think we could get her. We wanted someone archetypically like her, but I felt the same way about Morgan Freeman for Seven. I figured he’d never do it, he’d just laugh at me.”

On his reputation for violent movies: “I have a much more colorful and sordid reputation as a purveyor of violence than I deserve. I just use it as a device for storytelling. (Tattoo) is an R-rated movie, but we didn’t get gynecological with the violence. I think we were as tasteful as you can be with a subject matter like that.”

    I’m sure this movie will be a new half phenomenon and Rooney will get a (probably deserved) Oscar for it but it’s less than three years since the original movies came out… Hollywood, seriously. It’s also sad that neither of them stay true to the author of the book series’ vision and ideas.

    I saw the original and this version looks like it’ll be good too.

    @Lola: I agree for the most part. It is unfortunate it’s only two years after the first version. But I’m still excited, as I have a feeling I’ll like this version more. And I personally think staying true to the intentions of the book’s author is not all that important. Movies have different “authors” than the books they’re based on. The books are always there if you want Larsson’s POV.

    @asdffd, It is just a personal opinion of mine that if you do a movie adaptation of a book you should stay true to the book’s message and premise — I’m not trying to favour the original Swedish versions, because they didn’t do so either. Basically the jist of what I am opposed against is that the movies focus on and herald Lisbeth as this power-action-woman and make that the center of the story, when it was supposed to be about society and news, etc. That’s what I think is sad.

    I can’t wait! This version looks amazing! Well… it’s Fincher we are talking about, so amazing is the least you can expect.

    Can’t wait to see this! However, those stills aren’t “new”.

    Mike Says:

    This is not a story of the ’personal’ revenge of Lisbeth. The matter of social evil and political corruption, the sexism were ignored. Mikael Blomkvist brings up these as a public problem, not a personal problem of Lisbeth, before the general public in the book. Michael Nyqvist is a good actor, but he was wasted in the movies. He was described as an ordinary and flat man in the Swedish versions. He must be the so called clearheaded storyteller. Shame. I hope Fincher has not made the same mistake.

    lala Says:

    Why did Salander sleep with Blomkvist ONLY once on the Swedish one? After that, she even turned down him. That’s not faithful to the original!! They had sex many times, and Lisbeth induced even to have sex.

  13. 13
    Mike Says:

    Mikael Blomkvist is a successful womanizer. He has his own rule and sometimes refuses a woman, but he basically does not chase one who leaves, does not reject one who comes. Blomkvist in the Swedish versions was not womanizer. He did not sleep with Cecilia, Harriet, Monica. Blomkvist was just portrayed as a drab man in the Swedish versions. I think Michael Nyqvist can perform a womanizer well, but Daniel Craig is better fit. There’s no place for doubt.

    Fincher invited Daniel to join his new movie to him, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo. However, Daniel declined the offer. Okay, Daniel. I know he works excessively hard. lol

    DD Says:

    I can’t stop thinking he looks like her father. Is his character in the book that much older than Lisbeth?

    to DD Says:

    Lisbeth Salander is 24 years old.
    Mikael Blomkvist is 42 years old.

    I read these Chinese characters (or used in Japanese writing).
    It means, ‘a magpie’ and ‘mutuality’. You know Skyfall will go to Shanghai. This pic is a prelude? :)

    Daniel Covers The January 2012 issue of British GQ
    http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/magazine
    He plays one of the most iconic and identifiable characters in cinema but off screen he remains an enigma. In GQ’s extraordinary interview Daniel Craig, the spy who refuses to come in from the cold, reveals why he won’t play the fame game, his unique take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and the extremes he has gone to in order to find the ultimate Bond.

    Interview: Mark Strong on Becoming a Sultan

    (QUOTE)
    You starred alongside Daniel Craig in the early days in TV and later in film, and you’re both big-screen stars now. While you’ve maintained a relatively normal life, he’s hounded by the press and seems to hate it – why do you think some stars attract that sort of attention while others, like yourself, don’t suffer media scrutiny?
    I’m very lucky. I still move around London on the tube, so my life hasn’t changed at all, except people might come up and say, “I like you in such-and-such”. Daniel is a very private person and values his privacy very much. But Bond is an iconic franchise. When he took that role on there was an enormous amount of interest in him, and that generally makes people want to hide, unless you are a naturally gregarious, very social sort of person. You’re first instinct is, “Oh my God, how do I deal with all of this.”

    Daniel Craig – Daniel Craig Wanted To Protect His Marriage
    http://www.contactmusic.com/news/daniel-craig-wanted-to-protect-his-marriage_1266119
    Daniel Craig wanted to keep his wedding to Rachel Weisz a secret because he was worried it would be ruined if he made it public knowledge.

    Daniel Craig didn’t want his wedding to Rachel Weisz to become “f***ed up” by making it public.

    The ‘James Bond’ actor – who tied the knot with the actress at a private New York ceremony in June with only four guests present – admitted the couple wanted to formalise their union for “private reasons” and didn’t feel the need to share it with anyone else.

    He said: “We got away with it. We did it privately. And we’ve got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point. We did it for private reasons. Because we didn’t want it f***ed up, because that would be sharing a secret.

    “And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind.”

    The 43-year-old star – who met Rachel on the set of ‘Dream House’ late last year – explained married life is so far “very happy” and he is hoping to be in the relationship for the “long run”.

    In an interview with the UK edition of GQ magazine, Daniel added: “I’m in love, I’m very happy. And that is as far as I’m prepared to go. Life is long, life goes wrong and I don’t want to say something now that might be thrown back later.

    “Ultimately, people are saying, ‘Give it six months.’ Well guess what? I’m not responding. Life is long and I am hopefully in this for the long run.”
