Trailer For David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Already Playing Internationally

Though The Social Network's Oscar run tragically fizzled out right before votes were locked in, there are few movies more anticipated in 2011 than David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. An English language adaptation of Steig Larsson's international best seller, the story's dark tones and violence should sync up perfectly with the Se7en and Fight Club-director's style and as revealed in a photoshoot from a few months ago, Rooney Mara looks like she will fit the bill as heroine Lisbeth Salander. Fortunately it looks like we won't have to wait much longer until we get our first authentic taste of the film and some of you may have access to it right now.

Digging through the IMDb Message Boards, /Film has discovered that a redband international trailer for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has been showing in overseas and that a green band trailer is set to debut in the states on June 2 (exactly one week from today). The user posting about the trailer also put up a description of the footage shown and says that it may help silence some cynics:

So a few thoughts on this, anyone that is worried about it not following the Orginal/book can put that worry to bed. This looks to be as graphic if not more then the orginal. The trailer consists of a bunch of quick cuts of scenes from the movie. Alot of things from the Orginal that we only see in still photos and hear characters talk about are actually filmed and shown. Any worry about Rooney Mara not looking the part don't need to worry. There is a shot in the trailer of her topless pulling on a shirt much like Noomi Rapace does in the others. Mara looks the part for sure. Skinny as Rapace, only thing it looks like they may have done is toned down the punk look some. But not alot.

Going further, the post also mentioned that the score of the trailer is "Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin, but it turns out that may not be the whole truth. The Playlist spotted a comment saying that the song is actually a remix by Trent Reznor (who we know is scoring the film) and that the vocals are being sung by Yeah Yeah Yeah's frontwoman Karen O. If this turns out to be true, I may wet myself with joy.

Because we're awesome, when the trailer does come online next week you can be sure that we will have it up the very second it's released. Feel free to start counting down the days.
