As the fall movie season gears up with a lot of Oscar hopefuls preparing for their Toronto Film Festival or New York Film Festival debuts, there's one huge, feverishly anticipated movie that's keeping well under the radar. David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo exploded online with a mesmerizing trailer over Memorial Day weekend, but has been conspicuously quiet throughout the summer, assuming correctly there's no chance we'd forget it anyway. It doesn't take much for the movie to grab our attention again, and now the official site has done just that with two simple moves: posting a gallery of photos and character descriptions for all the movie's main players, and accompanying it with what sounds like a selection from Trent Reznor's score.

Check out four of the character descriptions, including those for our heroes Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), below, but definitely click on them for both the full gallery of characters-- 18 in all-- and Reznor's haunting music, which has clear similarities to the work he did for The Social Network but it also a little more ghostly, and dare I say, Nordic? I might just be projecting because I know it's going to go along with a movie set in chilly Sweden, but somehow this music seems like the last thing you'd hear before freezing to death out on the tundra somewhere-- or, in the case of the Dragon Tattoo book, encountering a murderer on a remote Swedish island.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, a.k.a. the Feel Bad Movie of Christmas, comes to theaters on December 21. Try not to gnaw off your arm in anticipation between now and then.
